Side by side cooling units usually have 2 compressors, one for the freezer and one for the refrigerator. The refrigerator compressor may be bad, or not pulling enough power, or there may have been a leak in the tubing that the compressor uses to cool the unit with. To diagnose the problem, be aware of the noises the unit makes, and check to make sure it is a 2 compressor unit. If you only hear one compressor running then your compressor is bad, if you hear one running too often, then your tubing is bad, if the back of the refrigerator side is warm but the inside is not cooling down, then the compressor is not drawing enough power. Keep in mind that the radiant heat from the operational (presumably) freezer side may cause the refrigerator side to appear warm. (usually there is a type of wire backing with tubes running along it, these tubes should be mildly warm.)

GE monogram refrigerator too cold


There is a balance between the freezer and fridge. Reduce the freezer temp and see what the fridge temp does. By reduce I
mean make the freezer warmer. If it is set too cold the fridge gets colder.

What should the temperature be on the non frozen side


Hi

We use Celcius here in Australia but I looked up the conversions.

Optimum temperature for your fridge is 3 or 4 Degrees Celcius. (37.4F to 39.2F)
Optimum temperature for your freezer is -14 to -16 Degrees Celcius. (3.2F to 6.8F)

the freezer should be arond -20 degrees celcius and the fridge aroud 5 degrees celcius
There could be a problem with air flow
the fan in the freezer has probably stopped or the air flow into the fridge is probably blocked
You could have a defrost problem. this would allow ice to build up in the freezer blocking off ai flow.

Hi samsung fridge runs fine gets to desired temp then wont kick in again until it warms up.


the fridge will run until it reaches the temp. there should be a differential of 2 degrees so when the temp rises by 2 degrees the fridge should restart so you will need to make sure the differential is set to 2 degrees celcius on controller

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
