My refrigerator is not cooling on the refrigerator side


There are so many things that can make your fresh food side not cool. Usually, it is a frosted up evaporator, which is blocking the air flow of cold from coming from the freezer to the fresh food section. This can be caused by a bad defrost timer, a bad defrost thermostat, a bad defrost heater, or a bad control board. It could be a week compressor that is only strong enough to cool the freezer, the evaporator fan may be bad, which blows the cold air from the freezer to the fresh food section, the damper control going from the freezer to the fresh food section, can be stuck in the closed position, or in rare cases, the light in the fresh food section can be staying on, or even the condenser fan that is responsible for keeping the compressor and condenser from getting to hot, may be bad. This is usually behind the bottom of the fridge. You might also have a dirty condenser, which is the coil that is usually underneath the fridge. So you are most likely going to have to call for service.

Why is my kenmore freezer cold, but refrigerator not even when set at highest temp?


Hello Donna;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have not provided your unit model number, which is located in your fresh food section on a label, on the side wall near the top.

You only have one cooling source, and that is your freezer. Your freezer feeds your fresh food section. This is through a direct air vent.

Reach into your fresh food section where the air vent from the freezer goes into the fresh food section. Do you feel cool air? Probably not.

So, either the air vent is frozen up with ice which you can clear with a hair dryer, or you have a automatic air vent motor/ sensor assembly that is bad.

Give me more information and I will help you.

Will freezer side work if frig side is out


The freezer will appear to still work for awhile after the fresh food side fail to maintain a cool temp, you will need to remove the back in the freezer section and see if the fan motor is turning, if the fan motor is not turning you willl need to replace the fan motor and this will correct the problem and allow cool air to circulate to the fresh food section and cool the fresh food side of the refrigerator

Temperature does not go below 59 deg. refrigerator side.


Auto Damper models, The Auto Damper model refrigerator has
two controls and both have capillary sensing.
The Auto Damper controls the fresh
food temperature and the Freezer Temperature
Control guides the freezer temperature.
The fresh food compartment temperature
is maintained by a damper assembly located
at the back of the temperature control
housing. Changes in air temperature
cause the damper door to open and close.
A control rod and gear connect the fresh
food control knob to the damper control.
Turning the fresh food control knob to the
COLDEST position increases the flow of
freezer air into the fresh food section. The
freezer compartment temperature control
warms at a faster rate and cools at a slower
rate, increasing the compressor run time
necessary to maintain a satisfied freezer
temperature control.
Turning the fresh food control knob to a
WARMER setting decreases the flow of
chilled air into the fresh food section. The
freezer compartment temperature control
warms at a slower rate and cools at a faster
rate, decreasing the compressor run time
necessary to maintain a satisfied freezer
temperature control.
It is ver possible that the auto damper has failed and will need to be cosidered as a likely cause.

Refrigerator does not get cold - GE side by side


In my GE side-by-side refrigerator (model number GSS20IEMDWW), there is a motor-controlled flapper door between the freezer and fresh food side. Cold air from the freezer side cools the fresh food side when that flapper door is open.

It is located at the top of the fresh food side on the dividing wall between the fresh food side and the freezer. If this is blocked with something (large left-over container, soft drink bottles, etc), it _may_ be enough to prevent sufficient cooling of the fresh food side.

Of course, there may be a more serious problem with the flapper door mechanism or the control unit that signals the flapper door to open/close.

The vegetable and deli drawers may have a small opening (manually controlled with a wheel or a slider of some sort) that connects those drawers to the freezer side, thus explaining how those areas are still functioning as expected.

Refridgerator not cooling


I always look underneith the ice box to see if cobwebs and dust buildup is clogging the fins and condenser motor. Clean that up all nice and she might work a little better. Look for frost on the back of the freezer, that indicates a bad heater. Listen for the fan motor in the freezer section. If it quits the cold air cannot get into the fresh food section. Check the damper (if applicable) to see if it is opening and allowing cold air from the freezer to get to the fresh food compartment. Look for to many food items in the freezer section blocking the cold air. If she needed freon you would fell absolutely no heat on the conderser coils below the ice box. MORE

Kitchenaid Side by side refrigerator section is not cooling the freezer is over cooling


SINCE THE FRESH FOOD SECTION GETS ITS COOLING BY AIR CIRCULATION FROM THE FREEZER, THERE MUST BE A RESTRICTION IN AIR FLOW SOMEWHERE. CHECK THE FREEZER EVAPORATOR AND FAN TO BE SURE THAT THE FAN IS RUNNING, AND THE EVAPORATOR IS NOT RESTRICTED WITH FROST. CHECK THE DAMPER OPENINGS FROM THE FREEZER SIDE TO BE SURE THEY AREN'T ICED OVER. IF IT IS AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL, CHECK THE THERMISTOR CIRCUIT FOR PROPER RESISTANCE. TECH SHEET INSTALLED BEHIND THE TOE PLATE SHOULD GIVE THAT INFORMATION.
