Re: warm fridge

Can you check to see if dust has accumulated under the refrigerator and the fan under the refrigerator is blowing warm air?
If the fan is blowing correctly and you find dust blocking the condenser area beneath the fridge try to blow it out or vacuum it away from the fins or metal grid. Just a small amount of dust there or a leaking door gasket will make it hard for the refrigerator to cool properly. Also check that nothing has blocked the entrance or the exit of the condenser warm air area. Hope I have helped you today, Thanks Sea Breeze

How cold should the freezer get?

I am assuming you are referring to Fahrenheit.. 16 is a little warm for a freezer. They usually stay around zero to 10 degrees above or below.

On my GE GTH21SCXSS, top freezer bottom refer, the freezer and refrigerator settings are on the coldest settings and the freezer won't go below 15 degrees and the refer won't go below 43 degre

Do you see any ice buildup on the back panel of the freezer? You may need to remove the back panel to see if the coils are iced over. Post back your results.

I suspect the warm to hot is from a heater that keeps moisture from from condensing on that bar. you don't notice it when the unit is working properly. Make sure your condenser fan is running and that condenser is clean. You may have a compressor that is failing

Our Kenmore Elite fridge mod 596.76252702, leaks about a cup of water on floor, 1-2 times a month

The condensate drain that takes the defrost water out of the fridge is blocked.
Pour some warm soapy water down the freezer drain and this may clear it

Ican not understand what you need.
So I am guessing here
Ice has built up on the evaporator coil stopping air flow to the food section.
Try manually defrosting the fridge. If this works then the auto defrost cycle has failed and you will need to get a technician to help you

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp

check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly

Freezer is cold, fridge is warm; replaced main board already

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.

Either the defrost timer is going out or it could be your defrost bimetal thermostat that is located behind the back wall in your freezer. Both parts are cheap and easy to install. I would replace both.
