Question about Refrigerators

Freezer is working fine. The fridge is not getting cold on level 3 thermostat setting. We have to set it on 5 (Coldest) to get a satisfactory cool level. On 3 which it has been set on since purchase in 2000, the milk goes sour. Help us please!

Look at the back of the freezer, if there is frost on the cover, there is probably a defrost problem. if you can unplug it and let it sit with door open overnight, if not remove all food and back cover. use a blowdryer to melt the frost on the coils, probably needs defrost thermostat.

The fridge is not cooling, but the freezer is


could be several things wrong. I'll start with the simplest first. Its possible that you have the thermostat set to the coldest setting. and what his does is actually close off the damper and prevents cold air from entering the fridge. the freezer will be colder because no air is entering the fridge. If you do not have the thermostat set to the coldest setting, let me know and we can go to step 2. at least this way we ca eliminate each step 1 by 1 to get this fixed for you.

Freezer is working fine but the Fridge part is not


i take it the unit is frost free you need to replace the defrost element in the freezer whats happening is your freezer sends cold air through small holes to the fridge compartment but when the freezer cant self defrost those holes freeze over thus no cold air into the fridge compartment get a tech in to check the element shoulnt cost more than $ 80.00

Fridge not staying cool, freezer still freezing


The defrost thermostat on the defrost heater is probably bad, it's a good place too start.

Candy CPCA250 GB Freezer feezing but fridge not cold


Hello jonnyclewlow
Welcome,


You said, you recently had a problem with my Candy fridge freezer (it defrosted overnight and wasnt cooling at all) and a repair shop diagnosed a thermostat problem. I have replaced the thermostat, Now the freezer freezes without any problems but the fridge does not go cold at all.
Also the compressor is running constantly

This is my first thought

Fresh Food temperature is
too warm. Freezer
temperature is satisfactory.

1. Fresh Food control is set too
warm.
2. Set fresh food control to a colder setting. Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.

3.Then see if you do not have your freezer articles packed full up to the top, or covering the cold air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer compartment.

The fridge and the freezer share the cold air so the air must not be restricted from travel form the freezer to the fridge and back!
This would also cause the compressor to run none stop trying to cool the fridge!
So check your air vents in the freezer.
I'll bet you did not know they were there !
Most of us never notice!
Hope this works for you.
Please let me know that one of these solutions worked for you!
or if you have any questions.
Thank You, huuum
Please remember to leave a rating!

Fridge too cold


There is a damper motor that is behind the vent where you feel the cold air coming out in the fridge section.  That damper should open and close after making temp. adjustments.  See if you can look in the vent and see if it is wide open.  Set your freezer on the coldest setting and check this vent again an hour or so later.  If it is still wide open then that damper motor is bad.  Let me know if you find something different or have any questions.
