Poorly Cooling Side Bu Side

My side by side by side refrige/freezer is not cooling very well at all. Model: MSD2432GR. I looked for some coils to vacuum off but did not find any on back or even underneath (that I could see anyway). Nonetheless. I vacuumed off everything I could find. Still not cooling well at all.

1. Are there "coils" somewhere that I just missed?
2. Any other ideas?

The coils are actually behind the unit next to the fan assy(sorta a plate rolled over it self opposed to conventional coils on this particular unit).tyr removing hte lower panel in freezer section, check the evaporator.Should be an even frost pattern across hte entire coil, no frost with execption of the top 1 or 2 coils, is an indication of a sealed system issue( covered under 5 yr manufacture warr usually). excessive frost (cpmpartment completly frozen over) is a sign of bad defrost system.perhaps even the fan not circulating the cold air into the refrig compartmant

Refrigator not cooling.


Are you filling your freezer to full that it isn't able to cool? Maybe you just need to have it serviced filling it with Freon.

Side by side refrig by kenmore and refrig running but not cooling. freezer is fine. checked settings.


Hello there:
If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running. First, answer these questions: Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it. Next, see if the compressor motor is running The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help. If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these: The compressor The Thermostat The overload, relay, or capacitor The defrost timer The condenser fan motor Cooling is poor A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas: Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.

Model # MSD2758GEQ - The freezer side is OK the refrifg side is n


Check to see if you have frost build up on the back of the freezer wall toward the lower section. If so you are have an auto defrost problem. Deice the coils and Check heater to see if broken. Most of the time the adaptive defrost control is the problem which is located in the fresh food section at the top area under all the nice looking plastic covering the cold control and freezer controls. The part is a 61005988 and cost approx. 80.00. I have to 2 of these today myself. Good luck. If you defrost all the ice out of the coils this will buy you few days of cooling before having to do it again. Hope this helps.

Refrig not cooling Freezer has frost build up on coils


Frost on the coils won't allow air to pass to the fresh food section, thus resulting in insufficient cooling. To eliminate this problem, you will have to get a new adaptive defrost timer ( small board ), and a defrost heater assembly.
