Check the vent that lets air from the freezer goes to the refrigerator. A control knob operates the amount of opening through the vent with a flap. makes the flap is not stuck, and responds to the knob, this is all mechanically link.

I have an Admiral LTF2112ARW refrigerator. The refrigerator is working but the freezer won't stay cold even though the thermostat is on the coldest setting. Any suggestions about what is wrong?


ITS NOT A GOOD IDEA TO USE THE COLDEST SETTING CUZ WHAT U WILL GET IS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE A MORE WARM SETTING. A HIGH SETTING CAUSES THE COMPRESSOR TO OVER WORK IT SELF CREATING TO MUCH COLD IN ONE SECTION TO THE NEGLECT OF THE OTHER SECTION. UR PROBLEM IS NORMALLY THE OTHER WAY AROUND TO MUCH FREEZER AND NOT COLD IN FRIDGE.? BUT i WOULD CHECK THE THERMISTORS IN THE FREEZER. AND ALSO TRY ADJUSTING UR SETTINGS TO MED AND CHECK UR AIR FLOW CONTROL VENT AKA COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT.

I have a Kenmore bottom freezer fridge. Can't find the manual. Is 7 the coldest setting or 1? We keep the fridge in our garage and with the artic temps we are having we need to adjust it.


most refr's dont so well when the ambiant temps fall below 50 degrees. you should not need to adjust the controls must past the "midpoint" usually 4. but 7 is the coldest setting.
the best thing you can do is check what the actual temps are in your garage and if you can warm it up to above 50, then the unit should run properly again.
if the ambiant temps are too cold, the freezer wont be cold enough and the refr section will freeze things.

Refrigerator top rack is warm. Temperature shows 65 degrees


if your freezer can make ice and the ice is dry, the problem is simply air flow into the refig section. A very common cause for a service call that wasnt needed for reefers is the settings. One setting OFF 1-10 usually, operates the compressor. The remaining setting will say , for colder freezer or similar, It opens a little flapper door between the freezer and the fridge section. If you set that one to max or coldest freezer it will actually starve out the fridge section for air ,and you get a cold freezer and warmer box! It happens everytime someone has the problem , its too warm! they peg both controls to coldest! The compressor will coll the freezer sufficiently even if set to 1 and the fridge should be cool too if the setting isnt pegged to coldest setting thus closing down fridge air and making the freezer colder which isnt ever required!

Why are my veggies freezing even thought the temp is set to 40?


Most fridges have crisper drawers that have a selection lever on either the front or side of the drawer that allows you to select eiher veggies or meat. Veggie setting is supposed to keep the crisper drawer warmer, while Meat setting makes it the coldest possible.

If you don't have the selector slide levers, I would suggest you use the highest possible crisper drawer available, as the lower in the frdge compartment you go, the colder the air will be. That should resolve the problem you're having, other than lowering the fridge temp setting slightly.

You might notice a cold air exchange vent next to your crisper, which supplies cold air from the freezer section into the fridge section, so that could be contributing to the colder temps in the crisper where you keep your veggies.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Refrigerator does not get cold


In your freezer section, there should be a "control" for the freezer temp. I say "control" because the knob is attached to a flap that only controls airflow the the lower section. If the knob is turned to coldest it will block almost all of the air from getting into your fresh food section.

Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost

If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is that cold air not getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is not open.
check your control setting. You should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side.

2. The fan in the freezer is not working.
You can hear this fan running when you open the freezer.

3. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice which won't let the fan circulate the air over to the Ref side.
This is a failure of the defrost system.
