Freezer cold/Not Cold in Frig KITCHENAID Model KBLC36MHS01

Hi,  I pulled the damper in tyhe Frig as it is not getting cold. It is in the open position. Checked Evap fan in freezer, it is not working. No sign of significant ice buildup. Ordered new evap fan and installed. Let run four hours after plugging in. Not working. Unplugged, turned off remote on/off switch, plugged in and turned on remote start switch. Still did not come on. Also held door button down when freezer door was open. Still did not come on. Any idea what to do next? I need this thing up asap as our home is being sold. Thanks so much for assistance.

Refrigerator freezes

Sounds like might be the Temperature Control Thermostat or some sensor in the circuitry telling the compressor and cooling parts to keep running because it thinks it isn't cold enough. There is probably a circulation fan to blow the cold air through the damper and it may not shut off either, conveying too much cold thermal conduction through ducting and all frig parts, regardless of damper being closed or open. With the temperature set on low, do the compressor and fans ever shut off once cold temperatures are attained? Freezer should be 0 or lower, frig 35-40.

Vegetable bin keep freezing food. Model # ED2CHOXKQ05

That can be the result of a couple things. Check to see if you hear the fan running in the freezer side? If not, since cold air falls, the cold air could be migrating from the freezer into the frig bottom section through the air duct hole in the back of the frig behind the crisper drawers. If the fan is running the check the air damper in the top left of the frig section. If the frig side is cold enough you should not feel air blowing through. Air flow is only very slight. You will have to remove some plastic cover or duct piece to see if it is closing. If the air damper seems to be working properly, you may have a refrigeration problem indicated by frost build up on the lower part of the freezer back wall. You may want to call in a pro at that point. Hope this helps point you in the right direction. Good Luck

Hi we have a GBS22HCPABB fridge and the motor runs, frezzer works but fridge will not get cold just stopped

you have a few possibilities 1. a defrost problem restricting air flow from freezer to ref. 2. a bad freezer fan motor 3. a damper issue not opening to allow air to flow from freezer to frig. most all refrigerators generate the cooling from the freezer to the frig via the freezer fan motor

Refrigerator not cold

first check your damper door from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment make sure its in the proper position. Then turn off the refrigerator for a few hours until the heavy frost melts away. turn on the refrigerator check the refrigeration cycle, is it working properly, is it going into defrost are the defrost heaters working.

Freezer is cold but the frig side is not???

Hi Gotzd,  If you open the fresh food side (not the freezer), and look to the upper left side you will see a plastic shroud or cover. Behind that cover is a printed circuit board (p.c. board)   and a damper motor. That motor brings cold air from the freezer to the fresh food side. The whole damper assembly may need to be replaced. That also includes the cold controls for both sides of the "fridge".  Home Depot Parts and Accessories has the part available. 800.378.5830. Call, give them your model number, and the description, they will locate the part number for you. This MAY be the solution for you, it was for me. Hope this helps, better yet, Hope you've fixed already.
