Warm fridge freezer is working but frigde is warm

    The freezer part is not defrosting correctly and ice is accumulating. The fridge part is just not as cold as it used to be. Last week I started to notice the fridge part getting some water leaked inside of it.

    What do I do? How do I fix this problem? I mean, I'm afraid to eat my food without getting sick, it's going to spoil.

    The refrigerator is only just a little colder than outside air temp and a lot of ice in the freezer compartment.

Need additional information as to make and model number. Check for frost build-up in the freezer, is the fan operating in the freezer?
Frost build-up in the freezer compartment will stop air circulation and the freezer will appear to be working but will not be at its design temperature. If this is your problem then it is in the defrost circuit.

Fridge warm, freezer fridge temp


The adaptive derost control has gone bad a very common issue. It will work a couple of weeks before its back to its frosting over. It just plugs in but to get to it you must remove the controls at top of frigde section in the back right corner held in by two scewrs.

Freezer drips water into frigde filling up ottom tray


Hello, If it is a top mount freezer then there is a drain that runs from the freezer to the drain pan that gets gummed up sometimes and if that happens then the water has no place to go but the fridge. Look all the way in the back of the fridge and you'll see a yellowish colored tube. You can just pop that out and take it to the sink and clean it out.. Hope this helps

Warm fridge


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this normally would point to the fan not spinning. The function of the fan is to draw the cold air from the freezer and force it through the vents to the refrigerator area. Even having said this, the fan is activated by the logic controller based on the the thermostat setting of the refrigerator and condition of the door (it must be closed).
To check:
  • fan - open the door, locate the door switch, press on it, light should go off, fan should kick in within 60 seconds. If not, faulty fan, fan relay, or controller. Alternately, you can measure the continuity of the motor's coil and or if there is voltage going to the terminals of the motor;
  • thermostat refrigerator side, you would need to use a continuity tester or have an electronics shop perform this. At room temperature the reading should be low, and should go high when the probe end is submerged in a glass of cold water.
Alternately, it may be the vents, flaps or vanes that are stuck, clogged, blocked and hence no air flow from the freezer to the fridge side.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

THE FRIGDE IS TOO WARM.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.
