Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

Fridge cooling 54 degrees - freezer 38 degrees and 24 degrees

I recently moved my fridge - which was working fine before we moved it. We left it unplugged for 2 days. When we hooked it up, the fridge compartment will only get down to 54 degrees. The freezer will get down to 24 degrees and then when checked 30 minutes later, it will be up to 38 degrees. It seems to stay at 38 degrees and will go back down to 24 degrees, but it will not stay there and keeps going back to 38 degrees. I have been doing some reading and wonder if this sounds like a faulty Defrost Timer? I appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

Will not be the defrost timer as they have a set cycle independant of the normal cycle...unless your fridge is eletronic. Did you stand the fridge up when shifting?

Hi, I have a Zanussi ZBB28440SA integrated fridge freezer, the fridge section is no longer cooling yet the freezer seems fine? Any help would be great!

unsure as to what problem might be , but refrigerators at 16 degrees would be freezing things solid here in the US if you are suggesting the temp is in centigrade them perhaps the damper motor controller has failed on it and you need to seek professional help to replace it

Fridge not getting cold

Check the condenser grille on the back is clean and warm to the touch. It should cool down towards the bottom and the drier cooler still. If it's cold, suspect short of refrigerant. If it's hot, move the fridge away from the wall to help it cool down.

The freezer works but the refrigerstor compartment only cools to 54 degrees. What might be the problem?

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.

Frezzer is fine but fridge is warm

See if cold air is coming out of the air diffuser top-back freezer side of fridge. A common problem is a bad air diffuser assembly. Sometimes it may freeze closed and break when it tries to cycle. The freezer usually works fine.

Fridge freezer not cooling from new - buttons not working

Sounds like an air flow problem from the freezer section to the refer section. Check that nothing is blocking the air vents, and that the dampers are operating properly (they control the flow of air). Of course if it's under warranty... call the service techs out.
