Frig just not Cold

Our frig has been working just fine. It has always gotten cold. We left for vacation so we turned off the electric. Emptied the frig, and it was off. When we returned, we turned the frig back on, and now it just won't get cold. It's blowing, but the air is blowing cold. I have unplugged it, and tried to start it over, but it simply won't get cold. Can you give me any tips for what I should try to do? Two days ago, water and some ice in bottom of frig.  I cleaned up the water, and none has accumulated again.  Starting yesterday, frig not cold at all (freezer still OK).   Thought maybe drain plugged, so turned off frig using buttons (tho' something's still running!) to melt any accumulated ice. It's less than two years old!

Re: Frig just not Cold

Check to see if air is blowing into refrigerator compartment.If no air is blowing.It may be that the settings on your dials are not right.If they are and air is not blowing,your evaporator fan is not working,or may be obstructed.

Refrigerator is stuck in defrost mode.

If the compressor is running and not getting cold I would say that you have burnt out your compressor.
If it was stuck in defrost you wouldn't hear the frig running. When in defrost the compressor stops while the frig defrosts.

Ice in frig air vent

you did just fine defrosting it but, when you put everything back in don't overpack it, leave room for the air to circulate. the heat from the bottom unit will cause enough condensation to leak down the air vent and the it will refreeze blocking your vent again

Frig not getting cold

See if the coils are blocked with ice. Fridge gets cold air from freezer, ice would prevent this thus a warm fridge.

Frig just not Cold

you might have had freon leak out from it sitting unplugged how long were you gone ? plus you need to wait atleast 30 minutes when you unplug your refigerator then plug it back in you cannot keep plugging it on and off it will burn up the compressor / relay overload
