Freezer is cooling fine, but fridge is not cooling properly

I have a FRS6R4EBA, the freezer is working great but the fridge doesn't cool, stays around 50 degrees. Manufactured in 2006. Any thoughts of what the problem could be?

Hi!!

This could be due to few things, so let's start with the easy ones;

Check fridge temp. control.

Check fan in freezer (should come on if door is kept open a couple of minutes.) if fan does't come on,
or if weak (should come on strong), unplugg the unit and take back cover off, (should be 4 screws), test fan applying 110v AC to it, if defective, replace. If fan OK, check for iced up evaporator, if so, defrost using a heat gun or hair dryer, make sure air duct to fridge is clear of ice..

Adjust temp. settings according to manufacturer suggestion (wait 24 hrs. before adjustments)

Don"t forget to rate this post. Good Luck.

You might check this link for details that are similar to your fridge issue. Likely you do not have cold air fanning to the bottom compartment hence not cool. I assume your seals work properly and that it is a fridge internal issue.

Fridge won't cool but freezer working fine


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Freezer stays frozen, but refrigerator doesn't stay cold


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.
