I have noticed that the fridge part is not cooling the way it should while the freever part still looks to be freezing at the appropriate levels. What can i try to fix it. the fridge is only 1.5 years old


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it'll be the control.

I have a Kenmore Side by Side refrigerator (57765791). About every two days or so it stops cooling. The freezer starts to defrost and the refrigerator gets warm. I am not sure how long this lasts, but it...


DEFROST PROBLEM
The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

Fridge motor on too much it seems


Remember, the colder you make the thermostat, the longer the compressor will run to try and reach the required temperature. Question is," is the temperature in the fridge cold enough or not cold enough." If it is, then you will need to have the thermostat replaced.(there is no control). If not cold enough at any time, then there is an issue with the cooling circuit.(Will then need to have it checked by a technician.

Refrigerator trouble shooting


Condensation only ever happens if the door is left open for a long period. - The warm ambient air condenses on anything cold - like the food in there.

Because of convection, the door need only be open 1/4" to be affected. Quite often a bag pushes the door open a little.

Check all door seals for splits - clean them.
Make sure nothing is touching the back cooling plate, and it should be fine from there.

Hope this helps.
