Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.


If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Why is freezer way too cold and fridge too warm when the temp display actually states the preferred temp?


Check the fan in the freezer section, its probably not working or turning too slow. Also check the fresh food cold adjustment its really just a door that gets adjusted, but it could be blocked with food, stuck or broken.

FRIDGE AND FREEZER IS COLD AT THE BOTTOM AND WARM AT THE TOP


It is a thermostat problem. It can be fixed but is sometimes cheaper to buy a new one.

Frig Freezes Up


Usually it is one of two problems. Either the defrost timer is acting up ( staying on too long or not  going off soon enough. It is usually . More likely is a refrigerant leak. Her is a easy way to tell. the compressor whould be warm when running, not hot The coils that you cleaned shoud be warm at one end and change tempature as it goes to the other,but never cold at the top. If the compressor is hot or the condensor(coils) are cool the you likly have lost part of the charge. If that be the case you have a leak and if you have it serviced it is the law that they find and fix the leak m, not just charge it up.  It is now necesaary to have a EPA license to buy the refrigerant.  Sorry.

Fridge way too warm.


Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

Ready?
If the freezer is cold and not the fridge, you need to make sure the freezer is not filled to the top and covering the cold air vents and passages usually found in the rear or bottom rear of the freezer!
If they are blocked or covered with packages the unit will not be able to transfer cold air to and from the fridge!
Yes, they share the air in most refrigerators!

What type fridge,model and age?


If not only a trained tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!


How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


You will be fine

Freezer cold but frosted up, Fridge Warm


If the freezer is packed to the top and the air ducts are blocked it can not share the cold air with the refrigerator and it gets warm. If this is the problem, then the next day it should get cool again! let me know.
