Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

Our 3 months old refrigrator will get so cols that freezes food products.


There are actually 2 cold controls on refrigerator-freezers. The main control is within the refrigerator cavity, the other is located in the freezer cavity. The one in the freezer is usually only a cold air deflector. It takes the cold air that is produced and divides it proportionally between the freezer and refrigerator sides. Set the control in the refrigerator to about mid-range. Set the control in the freezer to mid range. That is your starting point. If the freezer is not cold enough, adjust the freezer control. If the refrigerator s not cold enough, adjust the fridge control. After any adjustments, you MUST wait at least 24 hours for the temp to equalize before making any more adjustments. It may take a week to get it set right. This is true for all refrigerator-freezer combinations. Be patient.

My freezer works but my refrigerator wont stay cold...getting warm. it is 4 years old. what could be wrong?


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.

Why isn't our refrigerator staying cold? It is staying around 50 degrees and no lower.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

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
