Frig not very cold & metal between freezer and frig gets hot

The GE side by side is about 18 years old but in fabulous condition. The frigerator section is not getting very cold and I have it set on '9.' Also the metal separator between the refrigerator and the freezer is extremely hot to the touch. Any ideas for me?

Thank you1

Poor cooling and a hot divider mean that air is not moving effectively over the condenser coils under the fridge. Check to see if the fan is blowing under there while the compressor is running. If not, then the condenser fan has failed and needs to be replaced. If it is, then use a vacuum with a long nozzle to give it a good cleaning under there.

Start by checking the compressor. If it is running,you should tell by it being warm and a slight vibration/hum....it will start and should run until thermostat stops it. Since it's not cooling, it should be running all the time. There are 2 copper or stainless tubes entering the compressor. One should be hot;the other cold. If both are same temp,or the compressor not running,or is hot to the touch, your compressor is done for(some have a removable connector with contacts that are replaceable) Compressors aren't cheap.

Things are cold but frigerator does not shut off


If it still keeps running the refrigerator is not going into the defrost cycle or Problem with the computer board not seeing the temp sensor correctly. Maybe this blog will help.

Milk lunch meats freezing


I have to assume you mean on the top shelf of a refrigerator. If so, then you need to look for the air vent(s) that are usually in the rear of frig compartment either on back wall or under the frig compartment ceiling. These vents are pouring very cold air from the freezer and the air needs to get distributed throughout the frig, however the coldness is falling on the milk or meats that are in the way (getting hit with the cold before the air is disipated within the frig).
Three options: if the air vent(s) have a movable or directional cover, then redirect the air so it blows away from the food on the shelves. If there is no movable cover, perhaps adjusting the freezer control (not the frigerator control) to the next colder freezer setting; this will reduce excess cold flow pouring into the frig. 3rd, make a shield of plastic or metal or cardboard to divert the direct cold flow of the air vent from falling on the upper shelves.

GE frig/freezer side by side about 5 yrs


Bad defrost timer, most likely. It is not defrosting the evaporator, and therefore, no air can be passed over it. Hope this helps

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.
