Fridge too cold!

don't forget that just turning down your fridge temp dose not mean your problem might be over yet. the freezer setting may also be too high & that will affect your fridge temp as well. i set both my control settings to around 50% of what is on the scale & that works perfect for my 7 yr old fridge. also, very important, is make sure the freezer portion is going through it's full defrost cycles, or it will freeze the upper portion inside the fridge. you should not have any frost build up in your fridge, nor should you have any in your freezer. that's why they call them FROST FREE. try the slow temp decrease over a period of a few days & hopefully that will work for you. good luck.

My Whirlpool ET8WTKXKT0 doesn't cooling down. The fan is working, but the compressor like dead. What I have to check? Thanks. Victor

Its the problem with compressor,The problem is weak compressor.The refrigerant ( R12) in the compressor is got low.The compressor is weak.The compressor needs to be replaced.-------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.------------ But as you mentioned that freezer not cooling this indicates problem with compressor.When compressor cools the freezer section then fridge section gets cold.If freezer section is not getting properly cold then fridge section will not cool properly/.So the problem relates to compressor.---------- In the compressor there is a refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this Freon the compressor cools the freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling agent.The compressor will stop cooling when coolant gets leaked from its chamber.--------- Again recharging the Freon is possible, but the cost for that recharging is approx the cost of new compressor.So its always advisable to get compressor replaced.Because new compressor has warranty for few years.------------------ You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Not cold enough

this could be just a thermostat problem or the unit may need to be "re-gased" and a new compresor

Kelvinator N480s Freezer working, fridge not cooling

this can be caused by a few things. The fan in the freezer not running thus not blowing the cold air to the refrigerator(the cooling always comes from the freezer with a blower fan moving the air to the refrigerator.) it can also be a bad defrost timer not turning on the automatic defrost thus you get a big block of ice in the freezer and no cold air can get by this to the refrigerator. you can check to see if this or the defrost heater is bad by turning off the complete unit overnight.(make sure to put all your food in coolers or some other way to keep it fresh.) the next morning turn the unit on and if after a few hours your fridge is cooling nicely, either the timer or heater or bad. these can be tricky to locate and replace without experience or someone hands on showing you how to find them. Also on newer refrigerators(probably the last 6-10 years) all the components are printed circuit boards. and I have no experience with these.

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool

Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

Freezer fan not working

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

If the freezer is cold and not the fridge, you need to make sure the freezer is filled to the top and covering the cod air vents and passages usually found in the rear or bottom rear of the freezer!
If they are blocked or covered whit packages the unit will not be able to transfer cold air to and from the fridge!
Yes, they share the air in most refrigerators!

What type fridge,model and age?

If not only a trained tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine

I turned off the refrigerator and left the freezer door open so the coils and the vents could thaw out. The cold air was not getting to the refrigerator section because of ice blocking the vents.
