Fridge freezer not very cold


Same thing happened to my fridge freezer recently and it ended up being dirty coils. I would pull the fridge out if you haven't already and see if there is any build up around the coils. Mine had a lot of dust and who knows what else because the coils on my fridge were located underneath the fridge where many fridges have them on the back. Also some fridges have both(one for the fridge and other for freezer) but yours sounds like it has one coil for both fridge and freezer since both are being impacted. I used a soft bristle brush to clean mine and it did the trick.
I hope this helps and isn't something worse like a Freon charge or compressor going bad. If you pull out the fridge and there's a dark substance, that's a sign of the compressor going out.

Freezer only gets down to around 18 degrees but fridge is fine. No frost on the freezer evaporator fan is running

Modern consumer refrigerators only have coils in the freezer. In the lower back of the freezer there is a small fan and possible a damper (flap that opens/closes) to push cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. Given that the freezer is 18 deg, it's probably cold enough to keep the fridge area at typically 34 deg.
So the cooling system (compressor, coils, thermostat) are not working properly to keep the freezer at, typically 0 deg. Possible causes: partial loss of refrigerant gas, icing around evaporator coils (in freezer), compressor failing, dust clogging condenser coils (under fridge), condenser fan clogged or broken (under fridge), thermostat failure.
I'd start with condenser. Remove the slotted trim at the bottom front and look in with a flashlight. Are the coils clean? Pull out the fridge and remove the lower back cover (usually cardboard). You can now see the coils and fan. Clean and blow them out.
If it's icing, it probably means freezer door not closing tight. If auto-defrost not working properly it would probably get worse over the period of a few days so not likely.

My fridge _maytag (mtb1574de) is not getting cool in the fridge compartment. freezer is cool and i can hear and feel the fan circulatinf fine. the fan is not blowing hard in the fridge though. i already...

Some fridge freezers take the cold air from the freezer and moves it into the fridge via small duct in the back of the inside of the fridge and freezer . Empty frige and freezer , take plug ouy of wall and carefully remove involved panels taking note of any mechanical valves and order for reassembly. Clean and clear all airways and check for any blockages . Over loading of freezer can also obstruct airways . Whilst you are doing this you will allow a good defrost time for fridge and freezer airways . Hope this helps

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?

Hi, my freezer is super cold, and my refrigerator side is freezing my milk, my water ,what may be the problem? I have already cleaned the coil and the compressor. Thanks

well the coil being clean will just allow the compressor to function properly. You have a cold control problem. Too much air getting into the fridge. adjust the settings. Turn the settings to the fridge side warmer and the freezer side colder... then allow 24 hours to adjust... if still too cold then have a tech come out and service it it probably has mechanical problems

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Can't find refrigerator coils/ cooling issues

There're two coils ,the condenser coil wich you already clean (also make sure the condensing fan motor works properly and the fan blades are also clean).The other is the evaporator coil wich is located inside the freezer behind the back wall cover.
