The temperture is at 88 the buttons are not working


Hello Rpope808,

I understand that your Refridgerator is not getting cold. I do not know if it is just the fridge or the fridge and freezer. If both are getting warm then you need to make sure the compressor is running in the back at the bottom of the fridge it will be humming. If the compressor is not running then nothing is going to get cold.

If the compressor is running then you may have a problem with your fan not running inorder to move around the cold air. Below are two tips that will help you to check both of them.

1. Compressor not Running
2. Fridge not getting cold

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Freezer works fridge cool but not cold


Most side by side units have 2 compressor units. If you listen for it, you should be able to hear 2 compressors with slightly different pitches, operating at different times, or sometimes at the same time. If you never hear the fridge side compressor turn on, a sensor or the compressor is probably bad, if you never hear the fridge side turn off, the temp sensor is bad. If it has ever, or is leaking in the back, then there is a puncture in the cooling system, and the fridge will not be able to be cooled. If you can pull the fridge out and examine the tubes or unplug it for about 10 minutes and plug it back in to observe compressor activity and any small leaks, it would give a more definite answer to the problem. A mechanic will most likely be necessary.

GE side by side refrigerator. Fridge side not cooling - help!


Hi, they have changed lots of parts, were they defected, did they tested parts for faults or they just change parts, because it's available, there's always a reason why a certain part, go bad. so far you change most of parts in ref. check refrigerant (gas, freon) pressure, check compressor, for faulty suction and high side valve, it's possible your compressor loosing efficiency. or say if compressor normally pump 50 psi. now it's pumping 40 psi. is the refrigeration cycle balance ? is there restriction in your ref. system? is compressor running long enough? plug on ref. let it run for 1hr, listen to compressor for any clicking sound, fans and everything else could be working, be compressor not, compressor could be short cycling (not working long enough) also check voltage in receptacle(outlet) with digital multi-tester, get accurate voltage reading, let me know, could also be a faulty circuit breaker in house (building) not your ref. let me know, system could have very slow refrigerant leak, you could have a very small (slow) gas leak, that's why your refrigerator get hot first, then your freezer, there's a condensate line (loop) that passes through, ref body, close to doors to prevent door gasket from freezing, after few years sometimes develope leaks, cause by rusting. it's very possible there could be small leak in your system. let me know what happened.good luck.

The fridge is cold but the freezer won't freeze


The grill being the condenser coil- The sealed system is low on freon or the compressor isn't working correctly.

Fridge is not cold


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.)

Whirlpool side-by-side won't get cold, compressor clicks on-off.


Sounds like the start relay OR the compressor is no good. Have a service tech look at it, because there may be a capacitor in the circuit, which could be dangerous for you to fool with.
