Fridge does not get cold

The freezer is working but the regular fridge is not staying cold. The indicator is moved to "coldest" and it still does not work. I've tried defrosting twice but the same problem exists. Also, the ice dispenser is not dispensing ice. This all started at once. Anything I can do to solve this problem? Thanks for all your help in advance.

Re: Fridge does not get cold

If your getting frost build up in the freezer..u said u tried defrosting... is frost building up it freezer?

IF so you have a defrost problem...bad  heaters, defrost themostat or defrost timmer, if ya need more help post more info

Things to check
Check freezer...
for Frost build up and if Fan is blowing,
Check condenser...  
To make sure clean, and the fan is blowing by compressor & IF it is running
Check Recirclating Vents in refrigerator... to make sure theres no blockage,

CONTROLS ...should be in the middle setting,
Allowing.. MORE AIR.. to refrigertor side

Freezer not cold enough

setting the freezer at 7 opens the baffle from the freezer to the fridge to make the fridge colder. It works completely opposite than a person would think. Feel in the back of the fridge with it on this setting. The freezer is dumping all its cold air into the fridge thus equalizing the two parts. if you move the selector to 1, you should feel the air from the freezer cut off in the fresh food compartment. try a setting in the middle and let sit for 24 hours. Hope this helps

Temp in refridgerator is 40 degrees on bottom shelf with temp gage turned to coldest setting. Is this right?

the normal temperature for a refrigerator is 35-40 degrees F, so 40 at full cold setting is not correct.

If this is a side-by-side or top-freezer, make sure that the air vents between freezer and fridge are not blocked by food items or ice.

Make sure defroster operation is working normally as ice will block airflow.

Also, there is a circulating fan in most models that moves cold air from freezer to fridge. make sure that's working.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

You have a defrost problem. Refrigerator gets cold via freezer. If blocked with frost, will restrict cold air into refrigerator.

Fridge does not get cold

sounds like the internal fan is not working ,and on the same circuit as the dispenser.
I assume the tray is full of ice but not dispensing.
you likely have a failure at the circuit junction splitter board.
its just a board with a bunch of wires connected , usually in the rear .
