I noticed a couple weeks ago the frig side was not cold enough. Milk spoiling but butter not getting soft. Freezer side seemed to be working ok. Now Ice cream in freezer is getting soft.


How old is the fridge? Most units have a system of tubing attached to metal fins, which is located in the back of the unit. This tubing & fins must be kept clean as dust will accumelate & insulate the freon gas from turning into a liquid.. Another problem is when the motor & compressor does NOT get enough air to cool the tubing & fins. This happens when the refrigerator is located in a closet type atmosphere where the unit is too big to get any air to the rear of the unit. NO spacing on the sides or top. ALSO, the compressor might of died. In this case, if the unit is out of warranty and/or over 7-15 years old, buy another, NOT worth the repair. If still under warranty, call vendor/manufacture.

Check the defrost water evaporator tray located inside the bottom grille. You probably will find a disgusting mess. Remove the tray and scrub it clean to resolve the problem. While you are cleaning up, check the tube that directs defrost water into the tray. It may be clogged.

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok


Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

Smell under the unit, kenmore elite model number 44703


Hi: Not knowing your model number I would look where the milk was spilled and see if there is a hole. Possibly behind a panel for the defrost water. If so pour a little clorox bleach ane water in it. If not look for any cracks in the liner of your fridge. Those will expose the foam insulation to absorb the milk and cause odors. Clean them and seal them with teflon tape or a repair kit from the manufacture. On the off chanch the mild spilled to the front of the fridge and leaked behing the front grill the coils there are quite warm and will spoil milk fast. Pull the grill off and clean. I hope this helps, Jeff

Freezer and fridge not cooling properly


Clean it up. Check under it and behind, clean ,vacume and or blow out all dust and check the fins on the bottom, a soft brush and portable air compressor work really well but very dusty, take out side if possible, or just vacume really well.

not really sure as far a swhatconstitutes ruining along time, you are doing the right thing by keeping it clean for sure, refrigs now run for as long as they need if it never stopped running youd see hte effects of that in 2 ways, either all your food would be FROZEN solid( cause it never shuts off), or your food would be spoiling quicker hat n usual, in which case your refrig is trying to run all the time to maintain temps! the noise that you hear running might just be the evap fan motor running( circulater fan, sure its gonna run to circulate, but the compressor wont be running all the time.. check and go by your dairy products, ice cream too hard or too soft, and in refrig check the milk and butter.youll never know how cold you leftover is but youll know right away if the milk it too warm
