First check the temperature control knob in both the freezer as well as refrigerator section.Is the temperature control knob properly adjusted towards cooling or not.Get it confirmed first. The temperature control is located on the top left hand corner of the refrigerator compartment.Adjust the temperature control knob to "MAX".-------"MIN" the warmest to "MAX" the coldest.--------Your refrigerator has one control for regulating the temperature in the freezer compartment. The temperature control is located on the center of the freezer compartment's interior back panel.Adjust this also to the max.Let it remain in max for 2 hours.Then check. ------------------- Temperature inside the refrigerator is too warm:----------Temperature control is set too warm. Turn the control to a cooler setting and allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. Door is kept open too long or is opened too frequently. Warm air enters the refrigerator every time the door is opened. Open the door less often. The door is not closed completely. The door gasket does not seal properly. A large amount of warm or hot food might have been stored recently. Wait until the refrigerator has had a chance to reach its selected temperature. The refrigerator has recently been disconnected for a period of time. 4 hours are required for the refrigerator to cool down completely. ------------------- If still the same problem then this is related to blocked drain line in the unit so the defrost is not working and this is causing the problem,or other possibility is faulty control board.

Refrigerator not cold but freezer freezing


The first thing you want to do is open the freezer and see if the fan inside there is running. The reason is the freezer cools the refrigerator side by circulating air from the freezer. If the fan is running then your problem is one or more parts of the defrost system is malfunctioned and in return your problem arises. There are three parts to the system, the defrost timer or in some cases control board, defrost thermostat also known as a bi-metal, and the defrost heater. The defrost system is set up to operate as so. The defrost timer or control board will turn the machine off, in some cases every 8 hours, some 12. During this time period the defrost heaters, located behind the freezer wall and rest underneath the evaporator, yet wires to them run up the side of it, are energized and emit heat that raises upward to melt the ice that has formed on the evaporator coils. The bi-metal or defrost thermostat is at the top of the evaporator. When the heat from the heater starts to reach the bi-metal, it breaks the circuit turning the heater off. The whole purpose of this is because the freezer cool the refridgerator side by drawing air across the coils and blowing to the other side via the evap fan motor. In my opinion, if you change one part of the defrost system change them all because usually when one part fails another will follow, so save yourself the time and the food loss, the cost difference is minute.
