OK if the fan was replaced and the vents are open there has to be a restriction of air flow over evaporator coil causing the lack of air flow. On some models like yours there is something called an auto damper between the freezer and fresh food compartment and the damper is operated like a thermostat bulb on it's own solo. The best way to test them is to remove and place the thermostat bulb or tube coil into cold or hot water. I will gather more information for you as we go along here. Thanks, Sea Breeze

if you go here you can see the damper,fan assy. that's in the top of your machine in the fresh food side
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/WR49X10091/1055112
this is a damper with another fan in it,when the t-stat calls for cold air the damper door opens to let the cold air in from the freezer and the fan in it blows the cold air around inside the fridge,if the freezer is fine and the fridge side is warm most likely this is your problem,part number WR49X10091 and it's around 130 dollars.unplug the machine,remove the light cover on the ceiling,remove the 1/4 inch screws and drop the light assy.remove thhe filter cover on the right side so you can remove the damper assy.pop off the cover on the piece that runs up the back center,remove the screws to the damper,read the instructions and put it back together again.should take you around 45 to 60 minutes.hope this helps and good luck.

This is a Kitchenaid KSRS22FGBL00 - The freezer works good with a temp of -20c but the fridge side is not cold & has a temp of 8c. There is no frost build up anywhere. The air vents are not blocked. ...


Hello hlook,

I understand that you are having a problem with your side-by-side refrigerator. The Frezzer is staying closed and the fridge is not getting the air flow from the freezer in order to stay cold. The only possibility it can be is the fan. The fan may be turning but not at the rpms needed to move the air in to the fridge. As I have looked at the air flow chart for your fridge that is the only outcome I can come up with. CLICK HERE to view the air flow chart for your firdge.

With the cover off of the fan try and judge how much air is being moved by the fan. It should have pretty good air flow like the low setting on a box fan. You should be able to fell the air flow from two to three feet away.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Hi we have a GBS22HCPABB fridge and the motor runs, frezzer works but fridge will not get cold just stopped


you have a few possibilities 1. a defrost problem restricting air flow from freezer to ref. 2. a bad freezer fan motor 3. a damper issue not opening to allow air to flow from freezer to frig. most all refrigerators generate the cooling from the freezer to the frig via the freezer fan motor

Frezzer gets cold fridge dose not compressor and fan are running fridge only cools to about 46


Most modern combination units have two fans; one under the cabinet to move air over the coils and a second concealed behind the cabinets to distribute the cold air to both compartments. When you balance them to get the desired temperatures in each, you are adjusting the air flow from the cooling coils. Typically, the freezer has the coils and the fridge gets a little via ducts in the rear wall. If this fan fails, the freezer will suffer least and that seems to be what you are experiencing.
When the compressor is running, check the inlets in the back of the refrigerator to see if you have noticeable air flow. If not, that fan has failed.

Fridge not staying cold


First make sure that ur frig.is level. Then checx the cooling coils in the back. Make sure that all the vents,frig. and frezzer, are clear. Ur moisture control could be another factor.

Fridge not getting cold enough, frezzer is working fine


While you hear the compressor running, check to see if there is air flow from the inside vents in the refrigerator. There is a fan that is responsible for 'stirring' the air and since the primary cooling is located in the freezer side, if the fan fails the refrigerator suffers.

Refrigerator is not working but frezzer is the fan in the freezer is working, could the problem be with the thermostat.


The cooling in the fridge comes from the freezer side via a damper, make sure there is nothing obstructing the damper and that air can flow freely into the refrigerator side.
