Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Freezer cold, refrigerator warm

So my freezer is nice and cold. But my fridge is quite warm, no cool air seems to be coming from the back center thing. Some seeps down from the freezer, but it is not enough to actually cool the fridge. We defrosted it manually this morning to ensure air could flow where it needed to, but that doesn't seem to have done the trick. I've got two little kids (one is getting molars, today of all days!), $200 worth of groceries and my milk and cheese are at my neighbors. Can you help? It is a Whirlpool Estate fridge, and I think the original owners got it second hand.

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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

Your refrigerator probably has an issue with its "damper control assembly", which regulates cold air coming from the freezer compartment. Contact an appliance service company.

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

Cold freezer warm fridge.


That sound was the evaporator fan motor in the freezer. This circulates the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food section. If this is not running you need to check for power to it. If the fan has power to it but not running, replace it. It should be located behind freezers back wall inside of freezer near top.

Warm Fridge Section


sounds like the evaporator fan in the freezer is not moving the air. also there is an air damper door at the top center of the fridge that controls air flow from the freezer to the fridge. check those two components and you will find your problem.
