This will be a sealed system problem. An inefficient compressor.

Top freezer works but main frig does not


The way a refrigerator / freezer works is a single cooling coil in the freezer controlled with a thermostat. There is a fan that blows cold air down into the refrigerator section. There is another control that is just a vent control that changes the size of the opening for air flow. if the fan fails you don't get good cooling in the refrigerator section or if the defrost is not working correctly ice will build up and also stop the flow of air to the refrigerator. You should be able to hear the fan working inside the freezer. Replacing a fan motor is much simpler than troubleshooting an icing problem. There are several components that can cause defrost to not work. Bad temp cutoff switch, defrost timer or heater element could be causing that problem. With the unit unplugged and heater element disconnected you can use an ohm meter to measure resistance of the heater, should measure some resistance. Same with cutoff you should measure resistance when cold and none when above cutoff temp. Room temp is well above cutoff and use ice water to see if it closes.

Fridge warm, freezer cold. repair guy said its fine if milk is not spoiling. but set at 6 coldest temp is around 40


Can you feel air movement from the freezer to the refrigerator side through the cooling tubes when the evaporator fan is operating?

If not you might have some ice build up in the cooling tube that is not allowing the refregerator to get cold enough. Try a hair dryer to clean it.

My freezer remains cold at the proper temperature however the refrigerator is about 60 degrees. The fan is working in side the refrigerator. Sumsung Model# RS267LASH


That is way too warm for a refrigerator, those temps are unafe to keep food - it should be no warmer than 40F, and optimally 34F. For your freezer no warmer than 10F, optimal is 0F and colder.

If your freezer is within those temps, then your evap fan is working normally - you might want to have your damper checked - it is a flap that opens and closes as needed to circulate cold air to your refrigerator - if this damper is stuck and woN't open or open wide enough your refrigerator won't get the needed cooling.

You might want to check for leaky gaskets in your door.

Refrigerator cools, but not cool enough, even with temp adjustment turned to coldest setting. Freezer only gets down to 0. Fridge at 44 degrees


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.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent 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 ..


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.

WHIRLPOOL TOP FREEZER ET1WTKXKQ01. NOT COLD ENOUGH


You need to look inside the freezer at the rear wall cover and see if it is frosted over. If your refrigerator is not defrosting that can cause the refrigerator side and the freezer side also not to cool to the desired temp.

Refrigerator doesnt get cold enough


If you remove the back panel on the inside of the cabinet then you would be able to check the evaporator coil (cold bit) and see if it is frozen up. If it is then defrost the system and see if you have any improvement. All the things you have pointed out over the compressor is normal, they do run incredibly hot. If you have got the freezer on a very cold setting I would suggest bringing both setpoints to a mid range setting. Check the temp in the fridge by measuring liquid temp as air temp is prone to fluctuate more. If you still have a concern I would suggest contacting a fridge guy to assist you. Hope this is of some if not limited help.
