Hi,
usually when you cannot get the fridge cold but the freezer is cold it is because of ice build up on the coils of the freezer..this restricts the air flow through the coils and doesn't move enough air to the fridge to keep it cool...the freezer will stay cold...because of the coils inside of it...

here is a tip that I wrote about why this happens and how to fix it...

I have a KitchenAid Refrigerator Model Number: KBFC42FTS. Bottom drawer freezer over cools -10 degrees.


That's interesting, -10 or colder is too cold and something is defiantly going on. This unit is controlled by a mulitple control boards, temperture sensors and other components. Question, what is freezer temp set at? Try increasing it by 3-4 degrees and see if that changes anything. Beyond that, I'm going to change the temp sensor first before doing any of the control boards. #29 is the temp. sensor. Good Luck

Hi, my refrigerator Panasonic NR-B320T non stop running, both vegetable and freezer sections are GETTING FREEZED even though the temperature are set at 1 (cold not at 3, the coldest).


check your user hand book as most fridge settings work the lower the number the colder the setting
so 1 is around 1-3 degrees , 3 is 4-6 degrees, 4 is 7-10 degrees
it is the freezer that works 1 is minus 5 and 5 is minus 20 degrees
it would explain why everything is freezing up
it would also explain the non stop running as the fridge is battling to keep the low setting

Why doesn't freezer get cold enough


If the thermostat is turned up and the freezer still remains at around 10 degrees I would suggest the system coolant has leaked or the compressor is faulty. Check that the door seals are not obstructed or broken, that will stop the freezer getting colder.

I have a Whirlpool Gold side by side bottom Freezer gi7fvcxwqoo. The refrigerator side is not Cooling very will. The freezer seems to be ok! Does anyone know what's wrong?


Either the refrigerator is too cold to run properly in the location of your patio, defrost failure. or air damper is not opening and closing properly. First I would like you to enter the control panel into diagnostic mode=> GI7FVCXWA GI7FVCXWB GI7FVCXWQ Diagnostic Test I am going to be here to assist you in locating the problem but because your model has so many electronic features I am asking you to do the diagnostic test first to help pinpoint any problem your refrigerator may have that can be located while in diagnostics. You may get the complete repair manual by contacting me HERE
The temperature of the freezer should be colder and around 0 degrees F. What is happening here appears to be a defrost problem. 12729123 Defrost Heater

Freezer is too cold (-14 degrees) and fridge is too warm (51 degrees). The freezer keeps gettting colder but the fridge part keeps getting warmer.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.


The temp sensor for the freezer may be reading the warm air in the fridge so is not cutting the compressor off.

Running High @ -10 C and should run at -20 C on coldest setting


1. Make sure the sealing gasket is making good contact all the way around. It's pretty easy to lose 10 degrees. If it is a magnetic seal on the door gasket, it may not be sealing all the way around.

2. If it is staying that cold, everything is working well enough. Maybe you need a little gas in the compressor. Time for the service guy.

By the way, is your unit speced to be that cold full of supplies? Is the door opened frequently? minus 35 is pretty cold.

Left not transfering cold enough air to right side. doesn't get colder than 50 degrees, why?


Remove back panel of freezer (where you see the frost) and melt the frost with a hair blower. The frost blocked evaporator coils are not allowing air to pass over the cold coils, so no cold air is able to get to the fresh foods section. You will most likely need to replace the defrost heater at the bottom of the evap coils to prevent this from reoccurring in two weeks time.
