Appliance: Frigidaire 3.1 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator Problem: How do I adjust freezer temp in my mini-fridge with top frost free freezer, has turn dial for refrigerator but no turn dial for freezer and my ice cream is too hard... There is some strange "button" (I use the word button loosely, since it's just a piece of plastic that kind of depresses) behind the turn dial for the refrigerator, but there's no instructions as to weather that button is to be pressed 1, 2, 3 or however many times to get the desired temp or even if that's what it is for...

The turn dial that controls your fridge temp also controls the freezer temp. The freezer air is directly forced into the freezer compartment and then sent to the reigerator. Adjust the dial for the fridge not to be so cold and it will adjust the feezer also. Allow about 24 hours for any noticeable change.

We just changed the filter in our frigidaire side by side and now it is not making ice and water is just trickling out.

Water leaks inside


It's due to wrong temp setting and malfunction of defrost cycling. Keep thermostat setting at 5 degree or little less. And don't keep it in minus,as defrost cycle will take longer time. And also you will get less cooling in fridge compartment and also water leaks.Check drain line hose may freezed. And also freezer tray get blocked due to over frosting around freezer. Defrost manually by unplug your fridge and after defrost all ices, plug again and keep correct temp setting. Thanks.

Ice cream melted in freezer


Hello, There should be a temp adjustment for fridge & freezer adjust for colder setting. Check door sealant/gasket for cracks & seating. Next is bad news-call a BBB repair service. Good Luck.

Freezer works, but fridge is warm. Water had been draining from freezer into fridge, and freezing up in the bottom of fridge prior to this.


Sounds as if your evaporator fan located in the fridge part of the appliance is out. This fan is usually located by the temp control switch. If you open the fridge and listen you should hear the fan humming , if not, then replace the fan. Take the model and serial number to an appliance store and they should be able to get you the part. Good luck on your repairs.

Refrigerator Compartment not cooling properly: freezer compartment working properly


Check the freezer section for frost build up, there is probably a problem with the defrost cycle. 1 of 3 things defrost bi metal would be the likely problem.The back panel in the freezer should be removed to see if there is too much frost.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator


I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.
