Top Mount ReRefrigerator stops coolinng. The frozen items in the top freezer are softening. The bottom part of the refrigerator, though the dial is on high cool, it is not cooling--it is a bit warm. The light is working in the refrigerator. What could be wrong? We have had this refrigerator for 2 years.

Fridge wont cool.


Refrigerators draw air from the freezer to cool them. There are several possibilities. First check to see if you need to defrost the freezer, this can cause a blockage stopping the air to the refrigerator also make sure that there is nothing blocking the air flow in the refrigerator.
You can set the freezer colder and turn up the refrigerator setting dial.
If these don't work it could be the fan that is supposed to circulate the air to the refrigerator is not working. The door switch for the light often turns the fan off while the refrigerator door is open.
If the freezer is all the way up and items in the freezer aren't frozen hard then you most likely need you system recharged or there may be something wrong with the compressor.

Items in my Sub-Zero 650/S crisper are frozen. I turn down the temperature but the items in the crisper are still frozen. What could be causing this?


Check to see if the fan at the top near the light is working. Remove any large items touching the top panel. Your cold air is not circulating. This happened to mine last year.

Icecream not staying froze meat stays frozen though


Meat is always more dense than frozen dairy product. This soft ice cream issue usually occurs when the circulating fan becomes blocked due to overloading.
Unlike a chest type freezer, top mounted freezers use a fan to circulate to the refrigerator. If the return vents to the freezer become blocked by too many small items, or loose plastic bags the compressor may run too long in an attempt to lower the refrigerator temp,
This may cause the compressor to heat up and kick in the overload safety, further dropping the total temperature.
