If you have a french door (also known as bottom mount, freezer on bottom) and your fridge sections(cold air blows from freezer to refrig) is not cooling try this

1. ensure you hear the fan running, its it not, thats it(most likely fan motor
IF fan is running check these things
1. ensure refrig section light shuts off by holding down the switch
2. ensure door shuts
3. clean conderser coils (usually accessed from front through base grille)
4. check for icing in vents, freezer section contain them at top or back, and for a bottom mount the refrig sections vents are under your BIG drawer. if iced try a hair dryer from distance. or empty food into another fridge unplug open doors, and plug back in two days later this should defrost all ice build up

Top freezer is getting cooled but bottom freezer is not getting chilled


Check freezer fan behind freezer is working. Check ice formation not abstracting the fan by working. This is the common problem- defrost failure. Check thermostat,timer and freezer heater are working.
Simple way of solution. Unplug fridge for some times and after defrost completely, restart the unit.Keep freezer temp @5 degree.

Hi Alexandra. Hey New York? Brrrrr.

The thermostat actually controls the freezer side. The fridge side is controlled with cold air blown from the freezer side. The controls in the top of the fridge box contain the thermostat/switch, and the damper adjustment for the cold airflow from the freezer to the fridge side. Your problem is a blockage of the cold airflow from the freezer to the fridge side.
1. Frost blockage of the passage
2. Fan stoppage on the freezer side
3. stuck or broken damper

Some dampers are just simple movable plastic doors, some are servo/solenoid/motor operated.
Look up your fridge on Sears Parts, and the exploded diagram will help where to find the passage and how it can be blocked.

hi if the freezer appears to work and the fridge if warm,the problem is that the freezer is over frozen and blocking the vents which send cold air into the fridge when required,and the noise is the fan hitting the the ice build up,defrost (switch off)your applinace for at least 36 hours then switch back on,you will then find after the freezer reaches -12 the fridge will then start to go cold.

FREEZER ACCUMULATED WATER FROZEN NOW DRIPPING THRU TO FRIDGE


The drain in the freezer is blocked. Just below the cooling coils is a drain, when the defrost heater cycles on the water is suppose to go down the drain and into a pan under the ref.

Sounds like you need a new thermostat to me. They are kinda expensive, not too hard to replace though.
