Please remember the refrigeration side is a empty box the cooling is coming from the freezer side using a fan blowing through a hole cover by a slide and you can slide this cover wide open for colder in the refrigeration side or less as you wish. Hope this can help. God Bless.

The compressor probably needs re-gasing. You will need a refrigeration engineer.

Sister has Montgomery ward upright freezer, she had 3-in-1 part installed compressor runs now but she called and said freezer is not getting cold, water in cup still not frozen after 1 day. Is there a way...


Don't know three in one is, capacitor?
The compressor has oil in it. If the unit is layed on its side, compressor oil can leak out into the refrigeration tubing. This can cause a refrigeration circuit clog. Leaving the unit disconnected, upright, for a few days, sometimes fixes this oil clog.
If it sprung a refrigeration leak, it's another story, it needs a service tec looking for a leak. Then repairs, just chuck it or invest in this nice unit on repairs.
If compressor and fan blowers all run and work, the electric portion is good, compressor line gets hot, the other one cold.

Refrigerator not working, freezer works great


Yes, only one compressor. The refrigeration system actually only cools the freezer. Then there is a vent from the freezer to the refrigerator that allows the cold air to circulate to the refrigerator side. That little dial you turn to set the refrigerator temperature is actually only open or closing that vent. The dial for the freezer temperature is an actual thermostat that operates the compressor.

The temperature of the freezer should be between 0 and -10 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is in or near this range and the refrigerator is only at 55 degrees (the refrig should be at 38 to 45 degrees) then check for blockage or icing where the air from the freezer circulates into the refrigerator.

If the freezer is not in or near the 0 to -10 degrees then you have a refrigeration problem. First thing to do is clean the condenser coil on the bottom of the unit using rags and a shop-vac. Be careful of the wiring and tubing down there plus the sharp metal.
Unplug the unit before cleaning.

Otherwise, you'll need to call a refrigerator service technician to repair the refrigeration system for you.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

My Ge Monogram Refrigerator required maintenance cleaning on the condenser, typical with this type of built-in system. blew out the dust and cleaned it. the freezer is working fine but the refrigerator...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer works fridg dosent stay cold


When plugging it back in, check to see if you can feel air circulation (from vents in the top-rear) on the refrigeration side.
Check again after the fridge starts to warm.
There is a fan which is supposed to distribute the cooled air from the freezer to the fridge; this may be failing after the fan has warmed from operation. The bearings in these is primitive and can get sticky impeding the fan's rotation. Replacement of that fan is not covered by the (longer) compressor warranty.

GE fridge: Freezer working but fresh food side not cold


The problem is the refrigeration evaporator, located in the freezer section is blocked with frost and ice and not air can pass through it. Four different failed parts can cause this problem. The defrost timer, the defrost heater safety thermostat, the defrost heater, or the evaporator fan motor. Unless you are very good with a volt-ohm meter, it wiil be difficult to distinguish which one of these parts has failed. A qualifed refrigeration service tech or a good appliance service tech with a refrigeration certification can find this quickly.
