Freezer stays cold. Why is fridge part warm?


if freezer gets iced up the fan designed to pass cold air from the freezer to the fridge stops working. The freezer is meant to go into a defrost mode when its trtansducer senses too much ice. If the transducer goes fault the ice builds up. Some fridges use a timer to work this out so it could be a timer fault. Talk to a service man about how much ice the freezer should have for them to sucessfully diagnose the fault. Too much ice may prevent the service man from working out if temperature sensor is working and no ice can prevent him from testing sensor. To get rid of ice you have to trun off the power to the fridge and let it melt.
BEWARE remove food to another freezer and fridge to prevent food going off or getting food poisioning

Ice Melting towards the front of the ice hopper


Check that the fan motor wiring has not been disturbed. If the freezer fan is not working, the fridge will generally start cooling but due to poor air circulation , it will stay colder at the back but will get warmer at the front hence causing the ice to melt. The usual temp for a food compartment is around 4 degrees. The freezer should be -18 degrees celcius.

Samsung fridge freezer RL38SCSW fridge isn't cooling freezer is fine please help


Hi Hannipan,
I know this is a bit late but it should help for others. We had the same problem with our RL38SCSW (caused by the freezer door being left ajar for the day) the problem is caused by the freezer trying to cool down the unit and goes into overdrive by freezing all the cooling coils in the back. The air can't circulate (via the use of the fan) and so the freezer stays cold but no cold air travels up to the fridge.
Take out all of the freezer trays and behind there is a plastic cover held in by one screw, remove this and carefully remove the cover (the top part needs to be pressed downwards to release) under there is a grey plastic cover this will most likely be frozen to the back so don't pull it. Use a hair dryer and try to melt the ice. Remove two more screws which hold it in place and eventually it should come out easily. Now you can see the coils behind are frozen up, leave them to defrost (don't chip at them! or alternatively use a hairdryer to help melt the ice) Once it's de-iced put it back together and you'll be good to go again.
(Make sure you don't keep the hairdryer and one area of the fridge you'll melt the plastic and also make sure you turn off the freezer at the plug before working on it)

Ice cubes melting and then sticking together


If you have dispenser to get ice or water, there is a cover to it that opens and closes as you ask for ice. If that mechanism is not working it stays open all the time and causes your ice to melt because cold air scapes. You should be able to replace that yourself. Sears sells that part. It is not very expensive. There is a cover over the dispenser pannel. It should right behind it
If you Agur that suppose to turn the ice to dispense, that could burn up too because the agur can not turn all chunk of ice

Fridgidare, freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold

Freezer staying cold but fridge is getting hot


More likely than not there is a blockage of ice bettween the freezer and the refridgerator. most fridges work to get the freezer cold as a priority.Then the cold freezer air is circulated throughout the rest of the unit to keep the fridge cold. Thats why you may hear a fan running in the fridge unit while the compressor is not on. Unplug and open the doors to warm the inside. Look at the plastic piece bettween the two units and remove. See if there is ice build up and use a hair dryer to melt, dry area out and restart the unit by plugging back in or turning temp dial. Hope this helps.

Fridge not cooling enough


Check compressor if it is working fine then check temperature thermostat. If they both are good then either your fridge has ran out of gas or the doors are not closing properly.
