If you do not here a fan blowing in the freezer then you evaporator fan is bad. Replace it. If you have ice build up on your coils in the freezer then your defrost thermostat and defrost thermostat is bad. The only other thing it could be is your vent into the fridge is clogged with ice. Clean it out. Make sure you put all of the settings back to factory settings when complete. Hope i helped you. Good luck. Rate me.

Why does my whirlpool refrigerator make clicking noise at vicinity of cold control knob ?


Check ur cold control thermostat, ur thermistors, ur air flow vent from freezer to fridge.( to make sure it opens and closes without any restrictions) On thermistors check for A close circuit and amount of ohms not just an Ohm reading. As per ur model. Most should atleast show 1200 ohms. Also Check door seals for leakage.
Evaporator coils
Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.
If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

FAN check to see if it is operating or restricted A fan that is not blowing or restricted will not circulate the cold air properly.

Often, the first thing that folks do when their refrigerator starts to feel warm is turn both controls on the coldest settings.This is exactly the WRONG thing to do.Turning the cold control to the coldest settingwillkeep the compressor running longer and make lots of cold air.

But turning the air door to the coldest settingclosesthe airway to the food section. Lots of cold air is made, but most of it stays in the freezer section, and the food section actually getswarmer.


Condenser
Self-defrosting refrigerators all have a set of coils and a cooling fan, usually under the refrigerator, that need to be cleaned regularly. If these coils get coated with dust, dirt or lint, the refrigerator may not cool properly. The coils may appear to be a thin, black, wide radiator-like device behind the lower kick-panel. To clean them, disconnect the refrigerator from the power source, use a refrigerator condenser brush and your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils of any lint, pet hair, etc. You may not be able to get to all of the condenser from the front, it may be necessary to clean the remainder of the condenser from the rear of the refrigerator.

Have a GE Refrigerator Model GTS22JBP or GTL22JBP freezer works but frig wont stay cold


check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit? CHECK

THERMISTORS ALSO



ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!

MAYTAG REFRIGERATOR MSD2756GEQ ALTHOUGH I HAVE THE TEMP SETTING FOR THE REFRIGERATOR SET AS LOW AS POSSIBLE , IT STAYS SO COLD THAT IT FREEZES MUCH OF THE FOOD .


Hello,
They most likely problem is going the damper asm. that opens/closes to let air flow into the refrig.when is calls for cooling then closes when its cold enough. That damper is stuck open andletting in too much cold air. To repair that the damper assambly should be replaced ,the part # for it is 61005991 It fits in the upper left corner of the fresh food section,trying to close it some by hand now will restrict some air flow and perhaps everything wont freeze,until the damper can be replaced. It can be purchased at your local appliance parts store on online at

Freezer does not get as cold as the setting made but refrigerator


If the unit is working correctly, it could be that you are trying to adjust the freezer with the wrong knob. The fresh food section is cooled by forced air from the freezer and can get about as cold as the freezer if not adjusted correctly. The thermostat its self controls only the temp in the freezer. Some times telling which is which is confusing. Here is the best way to tell the difference.
The knob that will turn the unit off is the thermostat. The other one controls how much air can be forced into the fresh food section. The thermostat should be adjusted to where the freezer stays around -10 degrees. The other knob should be set so the the fresh food section stays between 35 and 38 degrees. If this does not help or if you find that there is indeed a problem with you unit, please get back with me and I'll be glade to walk you through diagnosing the problem.
Please post a rating if solution is helpful. Thanks

Does the single temperature control guage affect both,freezer and


check in the freezer section for a knob to control the freezer. Turn this knob back to center and return refrigerator setting to 5. What is happening is the freezer control is just a baffle that divides the air flow into the fresh food and freezer section. If the freezer knob is turn to 1 or cold it is sending all the cold air into the refrigerator, then when you turn down the actual cold control, the system isn't allowed to run long enough to allow the freezer to stay frozen.

Profile refrigerator section not cooling


We are not sure what precipitated the temperature swing up; however, within about an hour of emptying quite a lot of foodstuffs from top and bottom sections of the unit, I felt the cold air start to flow out of the rear vent. Within two hours, the upper section had dropped to about 50 degrees and by the next morning to 36. The freezer seemed to recoved on its own too, having risen to almost 8 degrees and then recovering to 0. Just patience and a smaller food payload?

Have side by side refrigerator (approx. 10 yrs old). Fridge no longer keeps food cold enough even at highest setting and freezer isn't as cold either.


Your refrigerator needs to be turned off and aompletely defrosted. Overnight if possible. You have a large amount of ice built up on the freezer coil that is blocking air flow.
Most refrigerator sections are only cooled by air flow from the fan in the freezer section.
Thaw it and clean it out real good and you should be back in business.
