Kenmore Refrig Model # 75922400 top Freezer. Freezer is freezing really good but frig is around 46 - 48 degrees at coldest setting. We discovered ice on vents in freezer and thawed them out with hair...


Sounds like a defrost failure.
Look on the back wall of the freezer from the inside.
If it is covered in ice your defrost system has failed.
Also check the fan motor in the freezer.
If it is not running it must be replaced.

Hi my lower part nolonger gets cold enough to keep fresh foods yet the freezer is working well


Set dials to middle setttings, if the colder /warmer dial is peffed max cold its max cold freezer!!! so move to warmer and the freezer will give more airflow to the reefer , the reefer is reliant upon the freezer for its cold air.

My Roper refrigerator stopped getting cold, although the refrigerator lights and the fan in the freezer works. What is the problem?


If the freezers warm, possible defrost timer bad, if freezers cold, set to middle setttings on both dials, the 1-10 OFF dial operates the compressor, the COLDER/WARMER dial operates the flapper door that regulates freezer air into the reefer box, if set to max cold that makes cold freezer, not reefer.

What setting between 1-9 should I set Freezer to prevent freezer burn


Good day,
Freezer burn is due to too cold a temperature in the freezer compartment. Nominal for that machine is 4 to 5.
However only time will tell you what is acceptable, since freezer burn can occur even at a warmer setting, if the product is stored a long time.
1 is warmest and 9 is coldest. I would lean to a slightly warmer setting to start off but that will create a trade off, since it would reduce the speed of ice production, and with especially high quality ice cream, possibly ice cream being too soft.
Patience is your friend here. But what you want is there.

Freezer and fridge are getting warmer and warmer despite their settingsGE Profie PDS 20 MFS 2005


ONE OF THE MOST COMMON CAUSES FOR A SERVICE CALL IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU STATE, THE MAX SETTINGS ARE SET AND STILL ITS NOT GETTING COOLER, ESPECIALLY IN FRIDGE SECTION RIGHT?
IF YOU ARE MAKING ICE THATS DRY THE FREEZER IS OK,
THE PROBLEM 90% OF THE TIME IS THIS
AS THE FRIDGE SECTION IS RELIANT 100% UPON THE COLD AIR MIGRATING INTO THE FRIDGE COMPARTMENT VIA A LITTLE FLAPPER DOOR THAT OPENS OR CLOSES OR IN BETWEEN AS WELL , THUS ALLOWING MORE OR LESS AIR TO MIGRATE INTO THE REFRIGERATOR SIDE FROM THE FREEZER SIDE
THE STUPIDEST THING IS THE FRIDGE SAYS MAX COLD ON BOTH SETTINGS, ONE ACTUALLY CONTROLS THE COMPRESSOR AND DETERMINES HOW LONG THE COMPRESSOR WILL RUN IT USUALLY IS OFF AND 1-10 , THE ONE THAT TURNS OFF THE COMPRESSOR ISNT THE ONE THAT DETERMINES THE REFRIGERATORS TEMP! THE OTHER SETTING FOR COLDER FREEZER DOES!!!! TAKE THAT SETTING BACK OFF OF MAX FOR COLDER FREEZER AND THE LITTLE FLAPPER WILL OPEN ALL THE WAY , WHEN SET FOR MAX COLD THE FRIDGE SIDE STARVES!, ANY SETTING 1-10 SHOULD STILL KEEP THE FREEZER FREEZING AND MAKING ICE IS THE KEY! IF IT CAN THEN ITS NOT A REFRIGERATION PROBLEM , IT IS A CIRCULATION ISSUE

Freezer section is cold, but the refrigerator section is not


set to colder refrigerator ... not colder freezer!! the fridge is reliant upon air migrating into the area from freezer side! if you peg both controls to max , you get a warmer refrigerator , but colder freezer, the control that does not operate the compressor is the setting i mean, it usually says .. for coldest and everyone pegs it and its a common cause for a service call and people cant believe it, if you cant tell which is which set both to middle! evfen at warmest setting the freezer should still make ice and thats the test for freezers state1 can it make ice!

The freezer is working OK but the bottom is not getting cold enough? Is these something bloacking the cold freezer air from going to the bottom.


If there is anything blocking the cold freezer air going down to the bottom refrigerator is the setting on your freezer control. Try to set the control on the freezer to warmer position. and you may get more cold air going down to the bottom refrigerator. Try that and hope it 'll work for you. If you want to know why, send me a comment and I'll explain to you. Have a nice day, God Bless.

Freeing food in refrigerator, even vegetables in vegetable tray


You have 2 dials in the refrigerator. One is the thermostat setting the cold temp in the freezer, the other is a damper that allows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. Set the thermostat to the middle then try closing down the damper, most say colder or warmer refrigerator. If the damper is closed and your refrigerator is still freezing, then I would guess that the thermostat is bad. A thermostat runs about 40 to 60 dollars wholesale. Retale should be about double.
