Could be a few things. Find the refrig vent that comes from the freezer into the refrig, usually it is in the upper left corner of the refrig compartment but could be in a few other places. When the unit is running make sure you feel air coming out of that vent. If not you probably have an issue with the defrost cycle and the coil in the freezer is iced over and blocking the air. Also check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is running. Feel for air at the vents in the freezer and listen for a fan running.

Samsung RB31F Fridge/Freezer - fridge temperature too high, freezer OK


1-The condenser coils are usually located under the refrigerator. They dissipate heat as refrigerant passes through them. If the condenser coils are dirty, they won't dissipate the heat effectively. As debris builds up on the coils, the refrigerator becomes less efficient, causing the refrigerator to work harder to cool down. If the coils are significantly dirty, the refrigerator will not be able to maintain the proper temperature. Check the condenser coils to determine if they are dirty-if the condenser coils are dirty, clean them.
2-The evaporator fan motor draws air over the evaporator (cooling) coils and circulates it throughout the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Some refrigerators have more than one evaporator fan motor. On refrigerators with only one evaporator, the evaporator is located in the freezer compartment. If the evaporator fan is not working, it will not circulate the cold air to the refrigerator compartment. If this occurs, the freezer may still get cold, while the refrigerator will not get cold. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, replace the fan motor. Additionally, if the motor is unusually noisy, replace it. Finally, if the motor does not run at all, use a multimeter to test the motor windings for continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, replace the evaporator fan motor.

The fridge is at 64 degrees and the freezer is working well. Coils are clean.


In most fridges, the cooling coils are in the freezer section. The other section is cooled by air flowing from the freezer section.There should be a valve/vent/knob that allows more or less air to flow from the freezer. Adjust this to maximum cold to see it the temp changes. Or is 64 degrees too cold for you?

Top refrigerator warm bottom is ice cold.


An automatic defrost time turns the defrost cycle on and off every 24 hours. If problem continues, problem is most likely defective defrost timer.

Even electronically controlled units often have electro-mechanical timers for defrost cycle.

I have a Kenmore bottom fridge model #596.69274991. Although things are cold and frozen, the room temp is only 70 degree but it seem to run for well over an hour although there has not been much opening...


Tom, you pretty much have it all covered. Make sure both the freezer fan and the fan under the fridge are both running and keep your eye on the inside back wall of the freezer compartment fro any signs of frost build up (possible defrost problem).
Good luck!
