SOURCE: Freezer not cold enough, refrigerator not cold

Hi,
This could be the defrost timer or the defrost heater coil... The evaporator coils are located at the back of the freezer compartment. To access you will need to remove all the racks and then there is a cover held on by a few screws at the back of freezer and under it you will see the coils... Do not beat bang or scrape them... Use a hair dryer or heat gun to melt ice or you could just use hot water . Put your model #.JCB2388GTB into searspartsdirect.com and they will show parts diagrams.
If I can help with anything else please let me know.

SOURCE: Side by side Sub Zero not cold enough.

How old is "OLDER" ? If there is no frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer you could have one of two problems. On older units the compressor wears out with years of service and no longer pumps efficiently. Or it could possibly be low on refrigerant charge. ether one of these two problems is a sign that is time to update to new unit.

If you have frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer section you then would have a problem in the defrost circuit attributed to the timer, defrost heaters or defrost thermostat.

sounds like your fridge is iced up.To cheak this you will need to remove rear panel in freezer compartment and cheak if there is ice buld up.If so you may need a defrost timer or your drain tube may be plugged..If those are fine cheak if your defrost thermostat is ok and not split.Hope this helped:)

Freezer not getting cold enough.


That is normal since the cold control is on the refrigerator side and is satisfied. It needs to be in a heated environment and not in an unheated garage.

Freezer is working OK but fridge is warming up - would this likely be a control board problem?


Not likely. Assuming you have tried adjusting the temperature control, a more likely suspect would be a problematic evaporator fan. This fan is located (usually behind an access panel) in the freezer. Its purpose is to move cold air throughout the freezer and the refrigerator. If the fan fails, there may be enough cold air to keep the freezer cold; but there is not enough to keep the refrigerator at the proper temperature.

If the fan is running, you should be able to hear it. If you can't, open the access panel and look at it. If it's not turning, you likely need to replace the fan motor.

Refrigerator cold but not cold enough. freezer


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.

The refrigerator is not getting or staying cold enough. the freezer seems to working ok


Check the vent at the top of the shared refrigerator wall for cold air from the freezer. If not, then you can either replace the motorized flap inside the vent or prop the flap open with a stick or something. The manual solution won't harm anything. The motorized flap is an over-engineered solution designed to create service calls. :<)
