Refrigerator not getting cold enough

I have a whirlpool top freezer and the refrigerator is not getting cold enough. It is an extra fridge and we only keep cokes in it. There is cold air coming out of the vent in the back but barely blowing. It gets cool but not like it should be coolong. The freezer on the other hand works perfectly! Not sure if it would be worth fixing as it is about 8-10 years old.

The freezer is not cold enough but i don't see a temperature control inside. Does the one in the fridge also control the freezer?


Correct. The fridge works 100% off the freezer anyways. So they installed the sensor right between the freezer and fridge if you look inside you can see it.

MY FREEZER IS GETTING TOO COLD AND THE FRIDGE IS NOT GETTING COLD AT ALL


In most refrigerator freezers, the refrigerator gets its cold from the freezer. The evaporator fan circulates air over the coils in the freezer and cold air circulates into the refrigerator through vents. If the vents are blocked or closed, then the fridge will not get cold enough but the freezer will. If neither is cold enough, then the number of possibilities increases.
Lowering the freezer temperature will increase the cooling cycle activity. Setting the refrigerator temperature may have little affect on the cooling cycles because it simply changes the vent opening size. Decreasing the fridge temperature opens the vents more and increases air circulation from the freezer.
The temperature can be adjusted using the controls found inside the refrigerator or freezer. The ideal freezer temperature is about 0 to 5 degrees (F) and about 38 degrees (F) for the fridge.
Measure the temperature by placing a cup of water with a cooking thermometer into the refrigerator for about 2 hours or more. To test the freezer, substitute alcohol or cooking oil.

Whirlpool fridge with top freezer.( no ice maker )


check if you have frost build up at the back side of the freezer section.

if you do, then it is a defrosting problem.

you could have a problem with the defrost timer, the defrost heater , or the bi-metal.

if there is no frost accumulation, that would be something more and you have to elaborate on what you observe with the unit to help me further troubleshoot your unit.

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.
