Used but very new Kenmore 21 cu. ft. I just bought doesn't get cold enough. Fridge won't go below 50 degrees, freezer won't go below 10 degrees at coldest setting.

    Thanks. I'm guessing it's most likely low on Freon, or maybe one of the other problems you mentioned that I can't test for. I'm going to have a Sears repairman come out for the repair.

That is the dumbest answer I've ever heard from a technician.

The cold control on most boxes controls the freezer temperature. You want the freezer temp to be around zero degrees.

Somewhere (usually in the refrigerator section) there's another control that actually sets a damper, letting some cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator. Higher numbers equal lower temperature. Find that second control knob and turn it up by 1 or 2 numbers, let an hour or so pass and check your refrigerator temp. You want about 40 degrees in the fridge.

Do you see any ice buildup on the back panel of the freezer? You may need to remove the back panel to see if the coils are iced over. Post back your results.

The refrigerator is not cooling enough. Even though I turn the dial up to the maximum 7, the temperature will not go below 50 degrees. I need to maintain a temperature below 47 degrees.


There could be two reasons for this
The thermostat is not working properly - replace the thermostat
There is a small refrigerant leak and the fridge cannot get cold enough - you will need a technician to find the leak and regas the fridge

Gladiator ref is not cooling properly


Check to see if there is cold air coming from the freezer to the refridgerator side through the vent holes The compressor maybe getting weak or the freon charge maybe low. Does the unit run a long time before it shuts off? 50 degrees is not cold enough for a freezer. You should be around 32 or less.

Kenmore elite refrigerator


It sounds like the fan is not circulating the air from the freezer to the fridge. Since it's new then you should contact the store where you purchased it for exchange or repair immediately.
