My freezer is working but not at top notch capacity. The refrigerator is definitely not working properly as the spring water, for example, is not chilled. What must I do to resolve this...


Hi Alexandra. Hey New York? Brrrrr.

The thermostat actually controls the freezer side. The fridge side is controlled with cold air blown from the freezer side. The controls in the top of the fridge box contain the thermostat/switch, and the damper adjustment for the cold airflow from the freezer to the fridge side. Your problem is a blockage of the cold airflow from the freezer to the fridge side.
1. Frost blockage of the passage
2. Fan stoppage on the freezer side
3. stuck or broken damper

Some dampers are just simple movable plastic doors, some are servo/solenoid/motor operated.
Look up your fridge on Sears Parts, and the exploded diagram will help where to find the passage and how it can be blocked.

The freezer side does not freeze on the top shelf. The refrigerator freezes everything in the bottom but reads 47 degrees and doesn't cool the top shelves. The fan under the fridge runs fine.


Behind the back wall of the freezer about halfway down, probably behind the light bulb (if there is one there) there is a fan. My guess is that the fan isn't working, or is slow. To test, open the freezer door, then hold the door switch closed and listen for the fan.

This fan should be blowing air up the back of the freezer, and send some of the cold air through a vent at the top of the freezer into the fridge. The air then descends through the fridge and reenters the freezer through a vent at the bottom. If the fan is broken, or if the upper vent is somehow blocked or broken, the cold air will enter (rather than exit) the fridge side at the bottom vent. Because cold air tends to descend and warm air rises, the cold air will freeze the stuff at the bottom of the fridge, and the thermostat (at the top of the fridge) will say it is warm.

Cold air not getting from Freezer to Fridge


I actually know nothing about refrigerators, but was able to fix the same exact problem where cold air was not getting to the fridge side of the side by side. The freezer was working just fine. I unplugged the fridge and freezer and tore all the shelving out to get behind a panel in the back of the inside of the freezer. There is a pass-through between the freezer and the refrigerator at the top back of the freezer on the side-by-side refrigerator. The passthrough was totally frozen over and blocking air from passing through and cooling the refrigerator side. I let it all de-thaw and then was able to pull the chunks of ice out, and all seems to be working great now. Be careful getting the ice chunks out as there are some controls there - it's probably best to just let it all thaw and melt by itself - which wouldn't require tearing all the shelving out. One could simply let the freezer dethaw for a day and then plug back in and both sides should work just fine.

My freezer works perfect but everything in the refrigerator doesn't get cold enough. My milk sours. My fridge is an inglis and supposedly brand new


Warm fridge cold freezer problem fixed
In the freezer section there was a one screw removable panel which housed a four bladed rotary fan. One blade had broken off adn was jamming the fan from rotating. Once the broken part was removed the fan was free to rotate, but out of balance, but it did get the fridge going again. It took about one minute to replace the fan once a spare was aquired. Now I understand how it works, if one side of your fridge freezer is not working it can only be the air movement or lack of it Robert

Side by side freezer works fine ice cold.fridge not so good. only at 57 degrees


Listen for the fan motor to run. Open the freezer\ push the door switch with your finger \ listen for the fan that blows the cold air to the fridge. only the freezer side gets cold...fan blows cold to the fridge side. If the defrost timer has broken then ice may be blocking the flow of cold air to the fridge also. Only 2 things to check. Good Luck

Whirlpool gold side by side freezer not freezing but fridge is running


Your fan in the freezer is wearing out. When your food in the freezer is blocking the air, the motor is working too hard. After years of using, it needs to be replaced. Get a repair man in to replace with a new parts. My Fridge/Freezer was totally broken and I found this out because the ice was melting. It got fixed and now no problem.

Side by side..fridge is freezing up while freezer works fine


Your baffle that controls the freezer temperature is possibly broken.  If you take the cover off the dials labeled "refrigerator/freezer" the baffle is a plastic arm that controls the amount of air circulation between the freezer and the refigerator. If the arm is broken is will stay closed completely blocking the air hole or vent.  I just wedged a small piece of wood or shim in mine and it hasn't frozen up since.

Good Luck.  I know how frustrating it can be to repeatedly defrost the ice build-up.
