Freezer not freezing but still cold

you might have ice on the coil in the back of the freezer under the cover. move your food to a cooler. eat a lot of frozen food then unplug the freezer and leave the door open for a few days this will melt the ice hopefully with no effort on your part. then plug it back in and wait a few hours to see if it gets cold.

Your refrigerator gets its cold air from the freezer by way of a fan that transfers air past the freezer coils to the refrigerator. If the fan isn't working the refrigerator will not get cold. I your coils in the freezer are freezing up this will also stop the flow of air to the refrigerator. The first thing to check is the fan.

It definitely sounds like it has failed or is failing at least..

Hello, just like your problem, our ice maker just stopped making ice. We solved the problem by unplugging the refrigerator for about 2 hours leaving the freezer door open.

It started making ice a few minutes after plugging it back in. Obviously the line that supplies the water had frozen and this allowed it to un-freeze.

We didn't remove any of the frozen items in the freezer, at the two hour mark, everything in the freezer was still mostly frozen.

Ice and water not working, then freezing in refrigerator, leaking

If the water tank in the fresh food section is leaking then you will need to replace it. the freezing in the fresh food section is due to the damper door not closing when it should. at the top left of the fresh food side there is a door that controls how much cold air it gets from the Freezer side. This door on your GE is controled by a motorized door witch is controled by a controlboard witch is reading sensors in your freezer and freshfood section for tempretures.

In short your freezing problem could be any of these:
temp sensor, Motorized damper door or control board. I would check the Motorized damper door first.

I havs a side by side and the top won't stay cold or freeze.

Cold air being heavier than warmer air will settle to the lower levels. Check for fan motor operation inside the freezer section. If the fan is not operating you meed service. Also check for frost on the back wall of the freezer section. If the fan motor does not circulate the air frost will form on the back wall, also if the defrost system is not functioning.

Jenn Air ref/freezer not freezing/cooling

Take the back out of the freezer and check and see if the refrigerator is in defrost while it is cooling if it is replace the timmer, then check and see if the fan on the underside is working if not replace the motor this will cause the problem also.
If all that is ok feel the small line under the refrigerator ( high side) and see if it is hot while it is running if not check the freon in the refrigerator.
