SOURCE: refrigerator freezes things the freezer works fine:

Most common is a dirty condenser coil. If you have not cleaned it recently vacuum and brush the coil underneath and the back bottom compressor compartment. Blocked air flow will cause erratic temps in the refrigerator section.

SOURCE: Freezer and refrigerator temperature warmer and

Frank, although the refrigerator is probably frost free (automatic defrost) there are a few reasons that the defrost cycle would fail. The defrost bimetal thermostat that controls the defrost cycle can fail. This bimetal is closed and opens to stop the defrost cycle when enough heat is given off. I do not know about the Jenn Air, but I think most refrigerators use a similar strategy. A second problem that is possible is the defrost timer fails (or the wires that run it). Defrost may be a daily function. Another possibility is a bad defrost coil or connection to it. Those are the 3 major components of defrost cycles.

You will have to manually defrost the freezer to prevent spoiling food. If you have to defrost regularly then one of those components is probably bad.

In general, not directly related to frost build up: Keep the refrigerator freezer section clear around the air grilles (not stuffed and no plastic bags that block air flow). If the refrigerator coils in back (freee convection) or underneath (forced convection) are really dirty, then cooling will also be a problem (but probably not related to frost buildup).

SOURCE: Touch Temperature Controls not working

Unplugging and replugging worked great! (We left it unplugged for about one minute. The motor started up almost instantly but we still had no numbers on display. I discovered that after replugging, you need to touch one of the up or down arrows for the display to reappear. What a lifesaver this was! Thanks so much.

SOURCE: freezer works, refrigerator doesn't, motor is making an odd noise

frost free refrigerators consists of -
1)Heater
2)Thermostat(bimetal)
3)timer

heater and bimetal are in freezer section. First check heater. Give it direct power supply. If it heats up,its OK. Then check bimetal. Immerse it in Ice. check continuity using a continuity tester. If its showing continuity its OK too.

change timer if both heater and bimetal are OK.

Why is the temperature fluctuating.


Service engeener always checks the average temperature inside freezer or refrigerator compartment. When you turn on freezer, the compressor starts to circulate gas through the system and the temperature in the freezer is decreasing (go to minus). When inside of the freezer reaches the set temperature the compressor is switched off and temperature will increasing. What will be the difference of inside temperature depends on the type of refrigerator and type of thermostat or sensor and moves to max. 8-9 degrees. With the advent of new "No Frost" refrigerator, this difference was reduced to only a few degrees Celsius, thanks to the fan inside the refrigerator and NTC sensor.
So 29 + 14 = 43; 43/2 = 21.5 which means that your average temperature of -21.5 which is not too much deviation from the set temperature of -18 and I think that is ok.

Too cold


Refrigerators and freezers have a thermostat control inside the refrigerator compartment. It is normally some type of dial with numbers and a graphic indicating warmer or colder.

Place a thermometer inside the cold box. Wait one hour and record the temperature. Adjust the thermostat one or two numbers warmer, then wait 12 hours and record the temperature.

The interior temperature for a refrigerator must be below 40F for food safety. A good range is 35-38F.

Our Frigidaire 18.4 cubic foot top freezer/frigerator P/n241543906 has water pooling inside of the top of the refrigerator also vents in freezer are hot. What could be the problem?


Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

The refrigerator never cycles off The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired.

MY FREEZER IS GETTING TOO COLD AND THE FRIDGE IS NOT GETTING COLD AT ALL


In most refrigerator freezers, the refrigerator gets its cold from the freezer. The evaporator fan circulates air over the coils in the freezer and cold air circulates into the refrigerator through vents. If the vents are blocked or closed, then the fridge will not get cold enough but the freezer will. If neither is cold enough, then the number of possibilities increases.
Lowering the freezer temperature will increase the cooling cycle activity. Setting the refrigerator temperature may have little affect on the cooling cycles because it simply changes the vent opening size. Decreasing the fridge temperature opens the vents more and increases air circulation from the freezer.
The temperature can be adjusted using the controls found inside the refrigerator or freezer. The ideal freezer temperature is about 0 to 5 degrees (F) and about 38 degrees (F) for the fridge.
Measure the temperature by placing a cup of water with a cooking thermometer into the refrigerator for about 2 hours or more. To test the freezer, substitute alcohol or cooking oil.
