Why doesnt the refrigerator and freezer not get cold enough?


You need to check a few things -
1. settings for the temperature are not set too low. Not cold enough.
2 there is no leakage through the door seals.
3. there is not too much ice formed inside the freezer walls. Needs defrost.
4. the fridge is not overloaded with stuff - not enough capacity to cool things.
5. Not enough free space behind the fridge to allow air movement for coils to cool
Please provide more details of the problem if above not helping. For example model number, is the problem happening both in freezer and refrigerator settings. Get a fridge thermometer and monitor temperature in both sections. should be 4 deg C in fridge and -18 deg C in freezer after stable operation.

Freezer side not cold enough, similar temperature as Refrigerator side


It could be many things. My first guess would be the defrost. The coil that gets cold in your freezer builds ice on it and the only way to get the ice off is to run a heater near the coil long enough for the ice to melt. All freezers have something built in to defrost and domestic are typically just an electric heater on a timer. When your freezer stops working again, you may want to pull open the panel of your freezer and see if your coil (a heat exchanger that probably looks a lot like your car radiator) is covered in ice. If it is, it could be the timer or the actual heater that is bad.

Our freezer and fridge or not keeping cold enough


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor or back of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

Freezer is too cold, ice crystals. Refriderator


I'm not sure which one you have, but try this: Look for the area where the air passes from the freezer to the refrigerator side, in the wall somewhere between them. Make sure that there isn't something blocking the passage. This is a good place to start.

It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.
