Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The Refrigerator is not properly cooling. That could happen due to several reasons. You need to cross check the below quoted components one by one in details in order to trouble shoot the problem.

  • Make sure that the compressor and the compressor motor is running and working properly.If not check the compressor, Thermostat, overload relay and the capacitor.
  • Check and set the thermostat to the optimal settings.
  • Afterwards check the condenser (dirt or lint) and the Evaporator coils (Frost Built up due to self defrosting unit malfunction), because that can also cause the cooling malfunction or poor cooling.
  • Also do make sure that the doors are properly sealed and the gaskets are intact.


Above are all the possible conditions for the quoted query. Please cross check each possibility carefully and you would have the bottle neck of the trouble you are facing.

Best of Luck,

Please Do RATE the solution, if you feels this helps you,

Concerned.

Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

You need to clean the coils . The condenser coils under the unit or evaporater coils inside the freezer. The coils inside could be iced over because of failure of defrost system.
The condenser fan under the fridge works? Does the fan in the freezer work, which pulls cold air from the coils inside freezer and blows it to the fridge side. Are the temp. control knobs in the fridge adjusted correctly? It actually just opens a vent to let more or less cold air in from the freezer. It takes a while for the ice to build up in the freezer enough to affect the cooling.Thank You for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

What does 34F ER mean


Put a freezer thermometer in the freezer and see if it reads +34 degrees, then put it in the refrigerator. If the freezer reading is above 0 degrees, say +34, then the freezer is too warm. If the refrigerator is reading 34 and the freezer is way cold, then the refrigerator is getting too cold. This could be either a thermostat setting too cold or the sensing isn't reading properly or a much more serious issue. Generally a refrigerator should be no warmer than +40 but not freezing either +32 degrees and a freezer should be about 0 degrees. Make sure nothing is blocking the air flow duct work or where the sensors are located.

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

Freezer works, frig doesn't


there is a fan on many newer units that blows cold air from the freezer side to the frig. If that fan is not working, the frig will be cool, but not 34° like you want it.

Refridgerator not staying cool

Refig set at 34 degrees and it might be about 45 degres inside what could be the problem


How about the freezer? Is it cold (about 0 degrees Farenheit). If so, there's probably ice build-up blocking air flow from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. Even though modern refrigerators are 'frost free,' they're really not. Over a period of time, frost can build up in areas where air flow is restricted (like the door that controls air flow between the freezer and fresh food compartment). Take everything out of the refrigerator and freezer and allow both to defrost completely. To avoid an odor problem, clean out any food residue that may have been masked when it was frozen. Be sure to LEAVE THE DOORS OPEN while you're cleaning and until you're ready to turn the unit back on and put your food back in. Hope this helps.

Refridgerator is not cooling properly


Ours does this too; it says its 34 degrees but really its 53-58 degrees. . . The compressor coolant part of the machine freezes and then it can't circulate the cold air to cool the fridge. You have to unplug it for at least 24 hours to let it thaw, or you can take out the lower drawers and shelves, unscrew and remove the lower back pannel (from the inside of the fridge). We use a blow dryer to thaw out the ice block that formed on the unit. It goes faster if it is unplugged, this fridge is horrible we lost hundreds of dollars in groceries before we figured out the problem.
