Suction at door is caused by the rapid reduction in air volume after you have had a freezer door open and then close it. The refrigerator door side does not have as pronounced air reduction volume due to less temperature difference.

Test you door gasket seal by closing the door on paper (dollar bill) works fine. If you have resistance when sliding or pulling on the paper you have a good seal. No resistance means your door is not sealing properly.

Refrigerator not cooling why


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

You have an older unit. Some parts are no longer available.

There are 3 possible component failures:

1.) Refrigerator Adaptive Defrost Control Board - This has the most probability for your problem.
25467327-2wop33oc00rzrbarpm5t54vf-3-0.jpg Substitution: 61005988 Cost $78.00
This is located in your fresh food section control housing. You must drop the control housing to access it.

2.) Defrost Heater - This component is located in your freezer section. You must remove the back wall to access the heater.
The back wall on your model has slots and screws that are both difficult to remove and more difficult to replace. Even harder is the string the wires up through the cooling coil without cutting your self on the razor sharp fins on the cooling coil.

25467327-2wop33oc00rzrbarpm5t54vf-3-2.jpg Substitution: 61006199 Cost: $48.00

3.) Refrigerator Evaporator Fan Motor - This too is behind the back freezer wall which is difficult to remove and re-install.
25467327-2wop33oc00rzrbarpm5t54vf-3-5.jpg Part #: 61005339 Cost: $106.00

Ok, what do we do?

A.) If you know someone who is above average mechanically inclined you may decide to replace the components.

B.) If I were still working for Sears Homes Services, I would leave you with a bill for about $450.00 or more.

Normally a refrigerator should last you 20-30 years.

Your unit is old. You are at the point that components have reached there life cycle. You repair this problem, then 6 month to a year another component is going to fail.

My I suggest; go into the internet and search for Sears Outlet Store (Scratch and Dent). You can save several hundred dollars and will get a one year warrantee.

Go simple. I have a 23 year old Kitchen Aide top freezer.

Stay away from Samsung and LG units unless you want trouble.

Stay away from bottom or drawer freezers. They are high maintenance.

Stay away from units that have either ice makers on the door or ice buckets on the door. When you open the freezer door, warm air from the room will cause block icing. Ice makers and ice buckets belong in the freezer.

Refrigerator and freeze not cooling

Hi there! If your side by side refrigerator unit is not cooling properly there could be several causes. The damper door, between the two doors, is not functioning properly and not allowing the freezer's cool air to move into the refrigerator's side to cool everything down. You also could have a clogged sealed system line or faulty compressor. Do you hear the unit running as normal? Do you notice any side of the unit, or external area, that is severely warm/hot to touch? Make sure the unit is clear of debris underneath and around any coils or connections outside of the unit. You may want to power cycle the unit by unplugging it or turning the circuit breaker off to it for a few moments. If these steps do not prove to be successful, please contact a professional for further assistance.

The fridge seems to be working from the outside until you open the doors and its not cold anymore,there seems to be a little frost at the back of the freezer side but all food has defrosted.

Check the coils in the rear of the unit. They must be clean or dust will act as insulation, the freon won't be able to transform into gas & do its job of taking warm air out of fridge. Inspect area around fridge, there should be at least 2" on sides & enough space on top so hot air from coils can escape. Maybe compressor is not working properly. If unit is over 5 years old, overheating the coils will ruin the compressor.

Moisture standing on outside freezer door. HTS18

Look inside the refrigerator section for a switch that says high moisture or energy saver . Some units allow the door frame heaters to be turned off during times of the year when the humidity is low.

The freezer door on our GE side by side fridge does not shut tightly in the center of the door causing a frost and ice build-up on the outside of the door, ( in the inside edges. We have been told that...

There are ways to adjust the hinges, and loosening the screws on the plastic door liner will allow you to "warp" to door a little bit in an effort to get it to line up flat and square to the opening. Sometimes the gasket gets folded up on the hinge side and won't let the door close properly. If you try these adjustments and the door just can't be fitted nicely, you have a serious ploblem. Use something straight to see if the cabinet is warped or if it is the door that is warped.

Jenn Air 48" Built In Not Cooling

We just had a repairman out for the same exact problem. What he discovered ours was is that the lights intermittently stay on with the door closed. Test yours like this. With the door open, push the switch that switches it off and on off and on several times. Chances are you'll see that even with the switch depressed the lights are on. If that's the case he says it's one of the relay boards. There are four and the repairman will need to check to see which it is. Hope this helps. If this is the case for a temporary fix you can open the freezer door slowly close the fridge door while peeking through the crack to make certain the light is off.

Samsung Refrigerator

This unit has a history of problems on the refrigerator side. the basic reset is press and hold down the 2 middle buttons on the freezer at the same time. As a general rule the number one problem is in the mother board. usually you can replace it and everything will work.
