I had an older model Anama BC21VL. The freezer was working but the refrigerator compartment was not much below room temperature. Cold air should come out of a vent at the top center of the refrigerator comparment, but very little was coming out. When the freezer door was opened, then much more air was flowing. It turns out that a flat food packet had fallen on top of the return airflow vent at the bottom left rear of the refrigerator compartment.

Ge turbo cool fridge doesn't cool.


If your refrigerator is not cooling, the problem could be as simple as a covered vent or something more complicated that requires the help of a service professional.

Is your thermostat set incorrectly? It's possible to accidentally bump the thermostat, so check it and reset, if necessary, to the proper coolness.

If there's ice on the evaporator cover ( typically found on the back wall), it's a sign that the evaporator coils inside could also be covered in ice and frost, indicating a defrost problem. Try unplugging the fridge and defrosting it before calling for help.

Since you are hearing no unusual sounds, the problem could be the start relay, which triggers the compressor. Have a refrigerator repair pro determine if the start relay is the culprit and to replace it if necessary.

For more help identifying the causes and solutions, read Refrigerator not cooling or check out the video below. I hope this helps!

Hotpoint Refrigerator constantly runs and doesn't shut off normally.


Sounds like the thermostat is not working that is what tells the compressor it is cold enough shut off.

Freezer works great but the refrigerator doesn't seem to cool real well.


Hello,

Please as long as the ref. is running, it should freeze very well. if this is not happening check the following.
1, The setting on the thermostat.
2, Check if you have enough gas in your system.
3. Check if your system is not leaking.
4. Check if your door seals are ok.
