Kenmore 73503 not cold enough

My refrigerator does not cool properly. The temp dial is set at the highest possible setting 7 and my food barely seems cold. The freezer works almost too well. The freezer is set at its lowest setting and seems too cold. Both the freezer and refrigerator are controlled by knobs. Please help with any possible solutions.

Hello! I have an old model Kenmore 21 CF. The fresh food part of the refrigerator (the freezer seems fine) is not cold enough. Last night at 11:30pm I turned it from setting 5 to 7 (9 being the coldest)....

Check to see if the fan in the freezer is running, without it you get no cooling in refrigerator. If that's ok check for ice buildup on back freezer wall if so you have a defrost problem

The refrigerator part does not get cold. The

to possible reason.

1. Under charge, your refrigerant gas is not enough to accumulate or produce ice, reason possible leak along the pipe line all the way to the back near the compressor (signs: oily part)

cause: Vibration or use of sharp hard object in removing frozen food or ice

2. Lost Compression (Motor compressor) failure to produce enough pressure to accumulate ice.

cause:un stable power distribution or flactuatuion of electric current
or old age of the compressor

My Dometic works but is not cooling properly. I set it at the highest setting and barely keeps food cold.

You either have a blockage or a small leak in the system. Need a refrig. tech. to evaluate then do the repair. No way out sorry.

Not keeping cold enough. temp is set on high . freezer seems cold enough, but as of last night , cooler seems warmer

Clean the condenser fins under the refrigerator, also make sure the cooling fan is moving air over the condenser at a good volume. Make sure the temperature selector for the fresh foods is set properly and that air is being expelled from that opening and the opening is not blocked by something that someone may have placed there accidentally.

Kenmore elite refrigerator. both compartments (bottom freezer and top refrigerator)are not keeping with the temperature setting. the food is cool but not cold as it should be. how can I test to see if...

Really most folks have to keep their setting on their fridge on about a 6-7 or-8 setting with the amount of food that is kept in the fridge now.
YOU CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE RELATIVE temp if you like by placing a fridge thermometer in the appliance. Optimal fresh food should be around 40-43 degrees F on average to keep things on the cooler side without freezing.
Hope this helps

Kenmore 73503 - Freezer very cold refrigerator warm.

Check and find out if your fan operates in the freezer. Cold air is heavier than hot air and will settle to the lowest point. The refrigerator not cooling tells me it is not getting the air for cooling which comes from the freezer.

My refrigerator does not cool properly. The freezer does not have ice built up and the fan is working, I can here it blowing when i open the freezer. The freezer almost works too well, it is at its lowest...

The lowest setting in the freezer compartment may be set to cold holding back cooling to the refrigerator. Try your settings at mid-point on both refrigerator and freezer settings.
