Yes, you will need to replace the thermostat control to a refrigerator control. There are two types. I like the one that monitors the temperature in the evaporator. It has a sensor line a couple of feet long and is small enough to weave it inside the fins of the evaporator and typically has a setting of 5 to get it to control the temperature inside the case at a temperature of 37 degrees. The other type has a short sensor and monitors the temperature in the air around the evaporator. The former is typically less expensive.
Hope this helps

What do I do if The freezer is working but the refrigerator is not cold


There may be a damper between the freezer and refrigerator. on some models this is thermostatic on others it is ran by an small motor. Look to see if the louvers are open. if not it is likely that the thermostat or motor is bad. Some even have a small fan.

My freeser is working other side is not cooling the top vent getting air but not underneath


You need to thaw the ice which has clogged the passageway from the freezer to the refrigerator. To do this, you can turn off the whole unit for several hours and let everything thaw, or you can remove the panels and locate the vent(s). Melt the ice with a hair dryer, then reassemble the panels and restart the refrigerator. There is a small chance that the fan in the freezer has frozen up as well. When the refrigerator compressor runs, you should also hear a small fan in the freezer run. If not, you will need to do some investigating to find out why.

The bottom freezer works but the refrigerator will not get cold. model# MFF2557HES


Sounds like airflow fan needs to be replaced. Most fridges use a small fan that blows air from the freezer to the refridge. If that fan fails you get working freezer and non cool fridge.

Plugged in our 19 cu ft Kenmore black/stainless steel refrigerator (top/bottom) and the freezer is working but the refrigerator is not cooling. It's been pugged in for an hour now and doesn't seem any...


Hi!!
Make sure the temp. settings for the fridge are set about half way, check that the small fan on freezer is working. The fridge gets cold by the air that the small fan blows thru a duct on the inside back wall of the fridge. If the temp. setting for the fridge is set too low, only a small amount of air goes into the fridge, find the vent(s) and make sure air is circulating. It is not uncommon to accidentally move the temp controls when you clean the unit.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

How does Auto defrost work and how long does it take


Hello there
A Look at the Defrosting System:
Modern refrigeration systems, whether industrial or household, feature a defrost system. A refrigeration system works by developing temperature below the water's freezing point. Long hours of continuous operation may lead to development of a layer of frost or ice around the freezer or the evaporator coil. This hinders the cooling capacity of the evaporator, making it difficult for the cooling effect to pass into the freezer. Without refrigerator defrosting, the layer of frost or ice leads to loss of cooling and lessening of performance coefficient of the refrigerator and higher electricity costs. There are various defrosting methods that your fridge can employ. Take a look at some of these defrosting methods.
Thermostat Defrosting:
Thermostat is a basic component in all modern refrigerators. The device allows you to set the freezer temperature that you want, depending on your requirement. Most often, a refrigerator with thermostat comes with a small plastic tray which can be found below the freezer compartment. This tray is where the excess water from your freezer goes to. The thermostat works by stopping the supply of power that is received by your compressor whenever the temperature that you have set has been reached.
The refrigeration unit stops producing the cooling effect whenever the thermostat stops, which happen several times a day. And during this stage, the frost or ice collected on the freezer starts to melt, with the resulting water collected in the tray. A small tube connects the tray to a small outlet usually located at the bottom back side of your refrigerator. A pan is installed there where the tube brings the water resulting from melted ice after defrosting.

After cleaning coils my refrigerator is still blowing warm air yet the freezer is cold what can I do myself to make the refrigerator cold?


There is a small fan which moves the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator part. Make sure that this fan is working. If it is not turning, the cold air will not reach the refrigerator.

These fans are easily replaceable; however, you probably will have to remove the interior panels from the refrigerator to gain access.
