The freezer works fine; the refrigerator isn't cold.


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. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. 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.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Freezer and fridge cooling but freezer not freezing and fridge not cold enough


Hello,
Their are a couple things that could be causing that.

The conderser coils under the kickplate below the doors is clogged with dust. Remove the kickplate and check/clean using a refrigerator coil brush that could be purchased from your local hardware store (Lowe's HomeDepot Ace hardware)

The condenser fan motor behind the refrig., behind the lower service plate directly next to the compressor isn't running and needs to be replaced.

Good luck,i hope this helps you to get your refrig back to cold,
Gene

Freezer Working Intermittently; Fridge not as cold as should be


the model number you sent didn't come up,i sounds like you could have an inefficient compressor or a freon leak.when you checked the compressor was the condenser fan motor running?this is what keeps the compressor cool also clean the condenser coil too.another thing is that if you have a timer on your machine it could be sticking,if you send the model number i can tell you where it is,also if you remove the back inside wall of the freezer,look at the evaporator coil,the frost on the coil should be the same over the whole coil,if it isn't you have a sealed system problem and will need to replace the machine.if things are cold in freezer but not cold enough this is what it sounds like,do this,open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not the evap fan motor is bad or it could be in defrost,if you don't hear the fan blowing wait around a half hour and check it again, it could be in defrost mode so the fan won't turn on until it comes out of defrost,also like i said make sure the condenser fan motor is blowing and the condenser coil is clean,if everything checks good and the freezer is cold but not cold enough and the best thing to check is the ice cream get a new machine,you have a sealed system problem.let me know what you find and good luck
