The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

The only thing a home owner can do to fix this is to make sure ALL the coils under and behind you fridge are clean. If that dose not work I would very strongly suggest calling a repairmen before you attempt to fix.

I just got a G E refrigerator from home depot model # gbscohcxarww. And the freeZer on the bottom works but the ref rig on top doesn't get cold


set dials to middle setting, max cold makes cold freezer, not reefer box!! if freezer makes ice its ok just set to cold which starves reefer box of air. add 2-3 gallons of water to the freezer and or reefer box, if empty it wont cool much.

Temp in refridgerator is 40 degrees on bottom shelf with temp gage turned to coldest setting. Is this right?


the normal temperature for a refrigerator is 35-40 degrees F, so 40 at full cold setting is not correct.

If this is a side-by-side or top-freezer, make sure that the air vents between freezer and fridge are not blocked by food items or ice.

Make sure defroster operation is working normally as ice will block airflow.

Also, there is a circulating fan in most models that moves cold air from freezer to fridge. make sure that's working.

Refrigerator is not getting COLD


clean the coils on the back of the fridge and make sure the condenser fan is free and running normally. that is the fan at the back of the unit on the bottom where the compressor is. if it cant ge rid of the heat, it wont cool. also make sure the the fan that supplys the cold from the freezer to the fridge is working.
