Refrigerator is not getting cold

There is a small fan, behind an inlet panel, somewhere in the freezer. This fan is electrically inline with the refrig side thermostat. The refrig gets its cold from the freezer as needed via this fan. It is likely that the little fan motor has gone out. Usually when the freezer is working ok (although it can be "spotty" because its not getting proper circulation either with some models), but the frige is not getting cold -- it is because either this little fan motor has gone bad, or the thermostat it is inline with.

If you have a multimeter, you can check to see if 115 volts AC is being applied to the fan motor. If it is and the fan is not spinning then the motor is bad. If there is a lack of voltage, then the thermostat is bad. The thermostat sits behind the control knob for the refrig.

Good luck with it. If this has helped you, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

Please check the timer the thermostat and the heater for the auto defrosting to work. Switch off the fridge and after all the frost has gone off switch on to see if the sooling returns . If so you can be sure that the timerr does not work and so reduces cooling on frosting. If there is still no cooling then you will need to check onthe compressor and the gas pressure. Get help to confirm and take an estimate before attempting, get an warranty assurance for work. Hope you try out and see first.Good day

Fridge is not cooling enough

I had the same problem. Freezer at the top and Fridge below it? In the back of the freezer is the evaporator. It is the thing that supplies the freezing air. Some of that cold air is channeled into the fridge. On mine, the defrost thermostat had failed and my evaporator was a solid block of ice. The engineer fitted the thermostat in 5 minutes and took an hour to defrost the ice with a heat gun.

Being on maximum doesn't help of course. The other possibility is that it has a refrigerant gas leak and needs recharging. You need an engineer.

Try turning the thermostat to a lower setting. (warmer) It might be set too cold and the thermostat isnt being satisfied. Usually this is all thats wrong with it. Temperature in bucket between 10-15 degrees.

Refrigerator and Freezer are not cold enough

sounds like your fridge is iced up.To cheak this you will need to remove rear panel in freezer compartment and cheak if there is ice buld up.If so you may need a defrost timer or your drain tube may be plugged..If those are fine cheak if your defrost thermostat is ok and not split.Hope this helped:)
