Constantly runs and what is the normal frig. temp?

It seems like the frig is constantly running and not sure how cold it should be inside the frig. I put a thermo in the frig and it stays at about 48-50degrees.

Freezer fan stays on constantly. temps ok in both sides. will this cost much more electricity and should i really worry about it.


If the freezer fan is running constantly, and things aren't too cold in either section, it means the frig thinks its not cold enough to shut off, so it runs trying to get to the proper temp. you have control set at. Check for any frost buildup on freezers back panel inside freezer. If there is you have a defrost problem.

Freezer is cold, has ice on bottom. Frig side is constant 50 degrees. It is constantly running also.


the defrost has melted the ice,now the drain tray is plugged and needs a wire run down from the drain in the freezer to the condenser pan so it can evaporate,as this fools the temp thermostat trying to cool the refrige compartment to keep trying to cool the unitif theres water dripping into the fridge rom the freezer this is a good indicator of this problem

This could be cause by several different problems. Here they are. Not enough R-134a freon. Severe frost behind back panel (inside freezer section) Conderser motor not running or running too slow to cool off compressor. Very dirty condenser. Excessive heat wll cause the compressor to over heat and warm up frig. It take about an hour for it to cool off and come back on. if you find out this problem let me know

GE TFX20R runs non-stop.


Have you sat and watched it constantly? Or just notice it running every time you take notice? I ask because a lot of people say it runs all the time when it doesn't really. Is it staying cold? or getting too cold? Or is the temp normal?

KitchenAid KSBS20QEWH0 side by side front of box is very warm to touch. No sound from condensor fan. Inside frig and freezer are cold. Seems like compressor is running constantly.


The condenser fan is probably the problem. Take the cardboard cover off the back to see it and test it. How to check everything

Fan in cooling compartment


The fan inside the unit should run all the time, this insures a more constant temp throughout the compartment by keeping the air moving.
