Check and see if your evaporator fan motor is working in the freezer. Also, if your defrost system is not working and your evaporator coil is frosted up, you will not get any cold air to the refrigerator section. You should see alot of frost on the back wall of the freezer where the evaporator coil is located. If your evaporator fan motor is working and there is no frost build up on the coil, the air diffuser to the refrigerator section may be the problem. Put your hand in front of it when the evaporator fan motor is running and feel if any air is coming thru. There are a number of conditions that can cause your problem. This should get you started!

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

The freezer seems fine but the other side is not very cool.


I had the same problem w/mine, Found out it was the timer. There is a timer on most fridge's that turn on a defrost lamp inside your fridge. That is why all fridgs are frostless now. They still freeze up, but a lamp will defrost them automaticly. When the coils freeze up, they wont cool the fridge side & but will still cool the freezer side. generally the timer is where the controls are, behind the cover.

Fridge side is loosing cold.\the freezer side is working fine.


Check for proper operation of the damper door. This allows cool air from the freezer to cool the fridge.
