It sounds like the evaporator coils are iced up. The following answer by another expert on FixYa explains it best:

My Danby refrigerator shows a lot of temp variance. A thermometer on the top shelf shows 40 degrees, lower shows 32, is this normal?


if the door has been opened or used for a number of times ,that variation will be around normal
the system works like this
the fridge cools air from the bottom up as cold air falls to the bottom of the fridge
if the door is not being opened ( over night) the whole compartment becomes to the same temperature as set by the thermostat and that is when the fridge cuts of
Now if the door seals are leaking cold air out at the bottom then the whole compartment will never get to the same temperature ( your variation)
similarly if the door is constantly being opened , the cold air at the top of the compartment replaces the cold air at the bottom that has flowed out onto the floor on opening the door (again your variation)
so you have to possible items to check
1 are the door seals in top condition and 2 is the door being opened too much in short periods of time

My kenmore side by side refergerator is not cooling like it should. My freezer is working fine. The compressor seems to be working but it is hot. My cooling fan is working fine. My thermostats seem to be...


I dont know if you have a newer or old model(thanks for NOT including model# in your question) but if its fairly new their very likely is a damper door in the upper left corner of the fresh food compartment that opens to let air into the FF compartment when it needs it. That damper (if it has one) is not opening.
If that damper is opening..is thier frost build up on back wall of FREEZER? if thier is frost build up its not defrosting automatically ,and that build up frost is blocking air flow into FF section.

Whirlpool 220L FF is not cooling neither on the refrigerator sector and very less cooling in freezer section. No air coming out from the vent section located in freezer compartment


Hi

Over time debris, ice or food particles can get stuck or lodged into the vents. If the vents are blocked cold air is unable to properly flow through the unit. Cleaning the vents will cause the cool air to circulate throughout the unit once more. Check the vent to be sure there is no ice that needs to be melted. Defrosting the unit with a blow dryer for faster results may solve your problem. Another place to check is the refrigerator seals. Seals are what keep the appliances door closed. Cracks in the seal will result in a loss of cool air. This causes the unit to run continuously, which can ultimately lead the complete unit to shut down. It can also be the reason the temperature has increased. It is also a possibility that your refrigerator is not cold because of the evaporator fan. The evaporator is activated by the door switch, which comes on when the door opens. If the switch is not working properly it will not turn on the evaporator fan.

Freezer works great, fridge not cold. about 60 degrees in fridge. had repair man look at the fridge, said the mother board, was bad. panel inside freezer iced uped. fridge seem to get better for about 2...


And you are posting because,.......????? You are looking for a second opinion? Don't like the repair estimate?
1. Your freezer is not working great. If it is frosting up, frozen packages will soon beging to soften also.
2. All of the cooling takes place in the freezer compartment. A fan blows air over the coils in the freezer, and directs some of it into the fresh foods side to cool it. When the coils become blocked with frost, the air can no longer flow into the fresh foods compartment. Result is warming of FF area. You may also see freezing in the bottom FF bin, water dispenser not working, FRZ section warm, etc.
3. Manually defrosting the coils will temporarilly solve your problem, but it will reappear in a few days to a week or so. (depending on door openings, ambient temp, etc)
4. The motherboard controls the defrost interval and (although not the most common) certainly can be a cause of defrost failure. If a qualified servicer diagnosed it as such, it most likely is just that.

Bottom of fridge not cooling


The fresh food compartment is cooled by air being blown from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. Something is restricting that air flow which causes your fresh food compartment to stay warm.

There is a panel, or door if you will, that separates the freezer and fresh food compartments. The freezer temp control determines how much cold air is allowed to escape into the fresh food compartment by opening or closing this panel.

If the panel is restricted from moving (stuck closed, for example), the freezer will get VERY cold while the fresh food compartment will be warm.

Try thoroughly defrosting the refrigerator. Possibly an accumulation of ice is preventing the panel from moving and/or is restricting air flow from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. It's a free fix and may solve your problem altogether.

If that doesn't help, or helps only temporarily, you may have a problem with panel itself or the linkage that connects it to the control mechanism. Unless you're skilled in appliance repair, checking and repairing these components will require the help of a service technician

Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.

Refrigerator compartment cools correctly for a few days then no longer receives cold air from freezer. The freezer continues to operate and gets much colder than it should.


does your fan blow? freezers have a fan that pushes cold air to the fridge side if fan is bad freezer will run extremely cold and fridge won't cool down and since frige won't cool down thermostat in fridge doesn't tell compressor to stop

Freezing food in upper chill drawer and freezes water in tank


Does you appliance have the custom cool controls ? If it does then there is another air damper in the custom cool unit at the bottom of the fridge compartment
