Hi,


Your refrigerator gets its cold air from the freezer by way of a fan that transfers air past the freezer coils to the refrigerator. If the fan isn't working the refrigerator will not get cold. I your coils in the freezer are freezing up this will also stop the flow of air to the refrigerator. The first thing to check is the fan.

Most refrigerator/ freezers are only controlled by one compressor (unless its a very expensive model). So if one is cold and the other isn't it's normally a simple problem.
First, check the temperature knob dials. Then check the seal using the dollar bill test or flash light test (described in link below).

You can also unplug the unit for at around twenty-four hours to clear blocked vents. Be sure to place some towels around the unit and prop all the doors open.
Defrosting your fridge should clear up any blockage in the duct as water and gunk often clog up the ducts. While you are at it clean the coils and the inside of your fridge and freezer.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Check to make sure the light in the fridge shuts off when the door is closed. You'd be surprised how much heat is given off by that light. If it stays on either take it out or replace the switch.

The top freezer is working but lower part refrigerator compartment doesn't cool at all even adjusting temperature to Max cooling??? It is like fan doesn;t blow cold air from the freezer


There is a drain that carries water from the freezer to a drain pan in the base of the fridge. It has plugged preventing water from draining and in turn the water has froze blocking the flow of air to the fridge. First you must find the drain line in the rear of the fridge and unplug it as well as thaw the fridge out overnight to allow the water to drain... be patient as there will be a lot of ice to be thawed out, let me know if it works! good luck!
