The temp is controled by airflow from the freezer. If you have a slide temp control, the control lever or knob might have come loose from the lever that opens the airway to allow airflow. You should be able to find a small opening that goes from the freezer to the fridge. This controls the amount of cold air that is allowed into the fridge.

GE Monogram Built In Fridge-freezer is not cold enough, but ice is ok...refrigerator is too cold no matter the setting. Someone suggested vacuuming filter above the fridge. Would this work?


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.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

The fridge is not getting cold, just maintaining a luke warm temp. The freezer is working fine. I decluttered both of them to try to help the situation..No matter what temp I put the fridge on, it doesn't...


In side by sides if the fridge side not working correctly it means that the air vent from the freezing unit has stuck in the closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be and if it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position. The vent is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up, which can be caused by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. Best call a service engineer asap.
