Kitchenaid ksrj25cnst refrig does not cool but freezer is fine

Freezer works fine, but the refrigerator does not cool, air diffuser is not clogged. When I have both doors freezer & refrig open, I can fee the cool air at air diffuser coming from freezer into refrig side, but as soon as I close the door of freezer, the air flow stops. I think there must be another air duct beftween freezer and refrig to keep the cool circulating from freezer to refrig.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

This refrig model is ksrd25cnst, made in 2004.

Thanks ahead

Jay

    I believe I have a similar problem. KitchenAid Model KSRS25ILBT02 Mar 2003 Freezer is working fine but is not cooling on the refrigerator side. I checked to see if the air flow vents are clogged but after letting it sit for hours and restarting it, the problem is still the same. Does the Air Diffuser contain it's own small fan that helps cool air to be transfered from the freezer to the refrigerator? Or does the fan that is housed in the back panel of the freezer the only fan that provides the air flow?

Whirlpool refrige side by side doors refridge not cooling frezzer works fine when freezer door opens cool air goes into refrige colse freezer door air stops


Hi,

The air return is clogged or obstructed. At the bottom part of the unit, left side wall of the refer section is a port, this is the air return and you will need to make sure to check this and clear all obstruction. If its ice, it will need to be removed. DON'T USE A KNIFE OR AN ICE PICK!!! You can do more damage than needed to correct this problem. I use a steam machine but, you could use a blow dryer if you careful with the heat as it can melt plastic. If you can unplug the unit during this cleaning process. If this is too difficult, unplug unit and leave the doors open to dray out for 24 hours or so, this will fix the problem you have also. Good luck

If this is struggling to maintain temperature like this, either the system is low on gas (motor running all the time) or the fan has stopped which you should be able to hear. Make sure that the fan is not just jammed.also check the return air vent in the fridge as if this gets stuck with a spillage ie O.J. etc, the fridge cannot get air from the freezer and the freezer runs continually (-30) but the thermostat never cuts out in the fridge. Last idea most likely.

Swan fridge freezer-freezer dones,nt get down to temperature but fridge is working fine.if you turn up the thermostat the fridge acts like a freezer


There is a damper door that opens and closes when you move the thermostat. I would bet the door is functioning incorrectly. All the cooling of a refrig comes from the freezer and gets blown into the refrigerator compartment. If that damper door is open too far it will have constant freezer air blowing in....and if it's not open enough obviously the refrig will not get cool. Look at the upper left corner of your refrigerator, the center rear wall of the refrig or just feel around for a vent will cool air blowing out of it......Then take it apart and see if anything is broken.

Freezer is very cold and refrig is not


make sure the return air is open, that is a vent on the side wall of the refrigerator above the crispers on the center mullion. and check to see if the evaporator fan motor is running.

Freezer is very cold and refrig is cool


Hi. As long as the evaporator motor is working its one of the two as you mentioned. If the compressor and evaporator fan is running and the refrigerator door has been open, with the freezer door closed, reach into the back left top where the diffuser is located and put your hand in front of it and see if any air is coming out. You should feel a moderate breeze. If not, open the freezer door with your hand in front of the diffuser and if the air comes out good now, the return air is blocked (normally ice build up). If no air is felt, the damper is most likely bad. Use a mirror and see if the damper is closed or frosted up. This can happen from the refrigerator or freezer door being left open for some time.If you have a mechanical damper, make sure it is set in the middle. You want more air to the refrigerator section.

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works


There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
