Maybe too much food in top part of fridge. Cold air comes from top of fridge near light. Can you feel cold air coming from there? Put a fridge thermometer in the top section-they only cost a few $ from kmart etc -the temp should be 2-4 deg C. My thermostat is turned to warmest setting and its still in that range. Does fridge cycle on and off every 1/2hr or so? If it runs nonstop, it may be the freezer section is all frosted up, probably coz the defrost timer has stopped working or else the defrost element has burned out. Both can be easily replaced by you.

My bottom freezer gets cold but the top part (fridge) does not. Why? I have an older first addition style


Its defrost problem.When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool.Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.

My refrigerator is not working, but my freezer is


Usually there is a air flow problem from it not defrosting(all the evaporator coils are frosted up with moisture preventing air flow-defrost problem ) or the fan motor is not turning in the back of the freezer section above the evaporator....
All of the cooling in the top or refrigerator section is done by air flow circulating across the coils in the freezer to get temps down to 38 degrees or so. You have to listen for the fan running in the freezer section, feel for air at the top back of the refrigerator(the damper control) Sometimes a bi-metal thermostat in the defrost circuit is also used in series with the evaporator fan motor, if it is open the fan will not run........(this I have seen) Also check the vents for the return air to the freezer(behind the crispers are not covered accidentally) Hope this helps........

My fridge compartment is warm... frezzer ok, How do I check to see if the fan is operating and how do I check the vents


A refrigerator temperature problem like yours is likely due to one of the following issues. Open the freezer door and listen for the freezer fan, you might have to close the door/light switch to activate the fan. There is a vent at the top of the back wall of freezer, as well as a vent at the top back wall of the fresh food section. Wet your finger and place it in front of either vent and feel for cold air flow. If you dont feel any air flow in the fridge and the freezer fan is running, you will likely have a defrost problem, either the heater, the bi metal t stat, or the defrost control have failed. Any of these will result in frost on freezer back wall. YOu may also have a problem with the damper door in the fridge, again, top back wall, not opening, or on the rare occasion I have seen a slice of wrapped cheese on the floor behind the fresh food crispers covering the warm air return vent to the fridge.

The bottom crisper in my refrige freezes my veggies


To repair this problem I dont think just toggling a lever is going to work. You need to locate what is suppose to sense the temp in the fridge section and how it stops the air flow to the fridge section. Basically most refrigerators cool in the freezer using the freon coils and transfer the cold to the fridge section using the fan in the freezer. Then your thermostat (temp sensor) stops the air flow by either turning off the fan or closing a small door going to the fridge section. This door is called the baffle and if you put your hand up to it and can still feel air coming thru when the temperature is 39 degrees or lower its not doing its job. With a model number I could help better but my guess is if its not freezing everything only the veggies your thermostat is off or the baffle is unable to close all the way and may have ice or debris in it. Either way I hope this helps.

Why does the top freezer work extremely well, even freezing water on the lowest setting but the lower part only gets to 47 degrees? As the freezer is turned to high the lower part increases to 52 degrees....


Sounds like your door seal is damaged somewhere on the lower door. Take a dollar bill and stick it longways along the door seal, and close door. There should be a firm resistance pulley the paper out. Move the bill along the door seal, checking each inch.

Of course, if the bottom part of the seal has a gap, this can usually be seen visually. Why the bottom part? Because when something gets spilled in the fridge, and "Not Me" doesn't clean it up, the stickiness pulls the seal, stretching and deforming it.

Why does the temp go up when freezer is turned lower? Because the fan in the lower compartment runs when the compressor runs. The more air that is moved in the lower compartment, the more air that is moved through the bad door seal.

My fridge not cold but freezer working fine


there is a shaft from freezer to fridge that the cold air travels. make sure that is unblocked. also make sure the fan is working. then see if the freezer coils are iced up (this restricts air flow). if they are, unplug it, empty the fridge and freezer, defrost the coils, dry it out, plug it in and turn it on (not high). once it reaches the temp and the compressor stops, fill the fridge again.

Admiral side by side


All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.

Freezer works fine but the fridge won't get cold


It sounds like cold air from the freezer isn't making it to the fridge compartment. This can be cause by a several things. The damper that lets air into the fresh food side is stuck in "closed" position, the temp sensor (t-stat) isn't working properly, the evaporator fan (in the freezer comp above the coils) isn't working to blow air up to the fresh food section. In some situations, the defrost cycle for the freezer section isn't working and the coils have frozen into a block of ice and air can't flow over them properly so you get not cold air to the fresh food section but the freezer still stays cold due to the block of ice.
