Freezer is freezing fridge is warmer than usual does the dial indicating coldness from 1 to 2 apply to the freezer, refrigerator or both? have cleaned condenser on back of refrigerator - it was not really...


Usually, the freezer knob just adjusts the airflow from the freezer to the freshfood section. The refigerator control turns the unit on and controls temperature. When unit is running, do you hear the fan running in the freezer? The fan forces air to the refigerator section. If not, probably bad fan motor. If it is, do you see frost build up on the back wall of freezer section? If so this would indicate a defrost problem, ice build up on evaperator blocking airflow to refrigerator section. You cleaned the condenser, Was the condenser fan running? Defrost causes. Defrost thermostat, heater,defrost timer. Good luck.

My matag refrigerator is not cooling down the top half of the refrigerator it is working well in the freezer below Ihave vacumed the condenser


all your cold air for the fridges comes from the freezer compartment.you need to check the evaporator coil and see if there is any frost or ice build up,also check the proper operation of the evap fan if the fan is not running then you will not have proper air flow.

if the fan is working and you do have ice build up on the evaporator coil it can be defrosted with a blow dryer.then you need to check the defrost heater and circuit to make sure it is working properly.

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

Freeze slite cool but refigerator is not cool at all


Sounds like a defrost system failure. This could be the freezer fan, heater, timer. You need an OHM meter.

You can manually defrost the freezer with a hair dryer that will get it working for a couple of days. Remember there is a lot of ice behind the freezer back wall, you can only see the tip of the iceburg.

Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.

Evaporator coils Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.

The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system:

  • The defrost timer

  • The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)

  • The defrost heater

If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem

Condenser Self-defrosting refrigerators all have a set of coils and a cooling fan, usually under the refrigerator, that need to be cleaned regularly. If these coils get coated with dust, dirt or lint, the refrigerator may not cool properly. The coils may appear to be a thin, black, wide radiator-like device behind the lower kick-panel. To clean them, disconnect the refrigerator from the power source, use a refrigerator condenser brush (see the Appliance Accessories section) and your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils of any lint, pet hair, etc. You may not be able to get to all of the condenser from the front, it may be necessary to clean the remainder of the condenser from the rear of the refrigerator.

if this helps please giv a fixya vote
