    I have the same issue. However, after following some website tips 1) check if thermastat is working - yes it is 2) check to see if vents/airways are blocked - yes they were and are now open/clear, 3) area under fridge is clean and vented - yes... I now have the add'l problem that now both the fridge and freezer are no longer cooling appropriately. The ice machine that was working yesterday is no longer filling/working and the freezer itself is warming up rather quickly. I don't want to pay for an unneeded service call if this is something I can fix.

Is the back of the freezer section iced up?
If so you could have a defrost problem. All the cooling components are in the freezer section there is a damper controlled by a dial in the refrigerator that opens and closes.
If the damper is closed it will not allow air into refrigerator section. It is seperate from the Thermostat.
If the damer is opened to much you can start freezing food in the refrigerator section.
If there is ice on the back wall of the freezer section. It is not defrosting. There are 3 parts in the defrost process. The thermination stat, the heater, and the defrost timer or it's a timer on the electronic board behind the metal plate on the back of the refrigerator.
Good Luck

Side by side Admiral freezer freezes but fridge


check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air from freezer into the refrige,sometimes they freeze up and cant open and close when called upon to do so,if so deice it with a hair dryer,the side being hot is good telling you the compressor is operating correctly

Your problems are exactally the same as mine. I have taken the freezer back panels off and fornd the elements blocked with ice, the upper and lower channels to the fridge are blocked with ice and obviously therefore no0 cold air is going the fridge, I have de-frosted the freezer and put back together and everything works great for 2 weeks when the same thing accurs. My settings for both fridge and freezer are on the lowest possible, but the wife does fill the freezer with too much food! I guess I need an expert in!!

Admiral SAC224 fridge freezer: fridge intermittently freezes up


To Whiteorchid,

Found a fix for my issue ... hopefully it'll help you.
Up at the topleft rearmost corner of the fridge remove panel to reveal spring attached slots where cold is supplied from freezer. The spring attached had came off one end as there isn't a "slot" for the spring to hold in place (design fault?).Reattached the spring and taped on .... and hey presto fridge now working perfectly again. Hope this helps.

Admiral side by side


All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.
