SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is

Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.

SOURCE: Black Maytag Side by Side MSD2756AEB 7+ yrs old? Won't stay cold...

Your condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system may be plugged with dust. The condenser is more than likely located in back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel. Remove the panel and clean it out. Reinstall the panel after you have cleaned the condenser.

Check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If there is frost buildup on the back wall it indicates that there is a problem in the defrost circuit.

Note: The proper term is "More mature individual" , not old.

SOURCE: Side by Side Can't find model # Not cooling enough

I cleaned condenser coils with vacum, emptied the defrost tray and vacumed all the dust from the unit, unplugging first of course. Now it is working just fine. Thank you fixya for all your help and postings.

I still can't find the model number anyplace on the unit. This unit is only 2 1/2 year old but no model number to be found on the unit. But

Check the condenser, behind the toe plate under the doors, for dust buildup. Clean using vacuum crevasse tool to get into the tighter areas. Remove the back panel on the lower edge of the refrigerator back section. Check for fan operation and clean by vacuuming out all dust . Carefully feel the lines coming from the compressor, small one should be hot and larger one should be cool or cold.

Inside the freezer, check the back wall for signs of frost buildup. This would indicate a defrost system problem. The defrost system is controlled by a timer, the timer turns on the heaters that melt the frost on the freezer coil, a defrost terminator switch turns off the heaters when coil reaches temperature for all frost to be gone. Locate the timer which has a clutch head screw so it can only be turned in a clockwise direction. Turn the screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. Defrost should start. Wait 18-22 minutes. If refrigerator restarts the compressor and defrost does not happen Your problem would be in the defrost heater circuit.

SOURCE: Fridge not keeping food cold.

When you open door to freezer do you hear a fan inside that compartment blowing? If you don't the fan motor is shot and will need to be replaced.

FRS26KF6EMK FRIGIDAIRE SS SIDE BY SIDE,stopped cooling,why?


There are many reasons for these symptoms. Feel the compressor top, is it too hot to keep your hand there? Look into the back of the freezer and tell me what type of frost pattern is on the rear wall? If the compressor won't start it could be because of a defective
Run Capacitor 5304464438

Start Device 241707712 APPLIANCE 911

Freon leaks or failed compressor can also cause the same symptoms

Refrigerator not cooling FRS22WNC


the damper vent door between the freezer and refrigerator isn't opening to let cold air into the refrigerator compartment from the freezer side,its in the upper left corner in the refrigerator behind a grille,if its closed you wont feel cold air flowing in from the freezer sometimes you can shine a light in this area and look in the other compartment and if no light then the doors shut and this is why its not cooling the refrigerator

My GE model GSH25JFTCBB side by side is not cooling in the fridge side. Freezer seems to be doing fine. What could be wrong


you could have a defrost problem,a bad damper,bad computer board.first thing,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing in there?you should,if not the evap fan motor is bad,if it's blowing touch the back inside wall of the freezer to see if any frost or like snow is on it,from the bottom up in the freezer remove the second bin of food and touch the back inside wall with your hand,if it has frost or snow you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,sensor or board,if there isn't anything on the wall then you have a bad damper,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,then the evaporator fan in the freezer blows the cold air over into the fridge section,you have a damper in your machine that opens and closes when it's cold enough or when it needs to get colder,the door on the damper isn't opening to let the cold air in when it calls for cold air.if you can write back and let me know what you find and hopefully we can get it fixed.

Side by side fridge not cooling, not making ice


if it seems like the evaporator is getting cold then your sealed system should appear to be ok. you need the evap fan to transfer cold air into fresh food section. if not turning u need to replace fan motor. make sure your not getting to much frost build up on the evap.

HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Freezer works but fresh food seems warm


If you have frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment you have a defrost problem. When the freezer coil does not defrost the refrigerator does not get air for cooling.
