Freezer Working, but Fridge side is not cold.

Hello,

My freezer is working fine, but the fridge side quit cooling. We have cleaned the fan and surrounding area, adjusted the controls, etc. and still nothing. I have the fridge cleaned out, nothing is blocking the vents and even tried adjusting the temp. of the freezer. The very bottom drawer has been taken out to let the cold air control try to cool the fridge down with no avail.

I sure hope you can help me, I love this fridge.

    The coils in the bottom of the freezer ice over. I took a hair dryer (carefully) and defrosted. Once defrosted, refrigerator portion will cool for a day or two and then the cycle repeats itself. Also the ice maker will not work properly. If you set the freezer temp to make ice, the coils frost over.

    We have cleaned the coils and checked the fan. It is not working.

    The freezer is working good, but the fridge part is not cooling enough and I do not feel any air coming through the vents in the fridge

I found that there is a build up of frost, defrosted it and so far the fridge will go cool below 45. I am giving it more time. I appreciate your response as it was very helpful! Thank you !

Fridge not cooling


Hi,

Your description is quite complete but is rather baffling. Pls bear with me while we process by elimination. A few basic/working ideas:
  • most designs call for a single compressor to cool the freezer;
  • the cold air in the freezer is drawn towards the fridge to cool that area;
  • this is performed by a fan drawing air in the freezer through the evaporator;
  • most would have a vent or air pathway to guide the freezer air;
  • all would have thermostatic control to set the desired temperature;
  • some designs have two thermostatic control , 1 for the freezer, 1 for the fridge.
As applied to your concern:
  • compressor is working since freezer is OK;
  • fan is working as you posted but is the air drawn from the freezer, better still, is the air forced/vented into the fridge?
  • could you please check that the air is strongly blown into the fridge area;
  • a little experiment, open the fridge door, look for and press on the door switch, the light should go out, after a lengthy seconds, the fan should trigger on, not only would it be audible, you would notice the frozen air swirling inside the fridge area. If you hold on long enough to the dorr switch, the compressor should kick in (if it is not already running) since the thermostat of the fridge area (if one is present) would sense that the fan is turning but the fridge area is not cooling.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Fridge section not cooling enough but freezer OK


Is the fan blowing in the freezer section? Also, check to see if you have airflow thru the damper (vent) in the frig section.

Freezer not freezing.just put new thermastat in it


fridges and freezers work on the following principal: the freezer area is cooled and the cold air is circulated and shared with the fridge area.
So the keys to a good working unit are first to set the freezer so that it is at the desired temperature, then adjust the fridge control to get the desired fridge temperature
air flow is the only thing that the fridge thermostat controls, so keep the clutter in the fridge to a minimum
also dirt and hair dust etc build up on most appliances that have a fan so clean the areas around the back and bottom of the unit
remember any time you work on an electrical appliance unplug it first
lastly fridges with frost free designs need to have a clear drain from under the freezer all the way down to the bottom where the compressor motor is make sure this is also kept clean
if this fails to solve your problem then likely there is a leak in the system or compressor problem, but if this is the case your freezer will not work correctly either
remember the only cooling is done at the freezer znd cold air is sent through the fridge
lastly obviously the fridge and freezer are highly insulated and sealed and these are both important

Kenmore side by side fridge. Green temp light flashing for fridge side, freezer side working fine. Fridge side not cooling.


possibly frosted up at the air door between the fridge and freezer, or the fan in the freezer is not pushing cold air into the fridge side, if you can not hear a fan running in the freezer when the fridge is running (compressor on) then change out the fan

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp


check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly
