I have the same problem and I am able to resolve it by defrosting the element which is behind the inside rear panel of the freezer. I use a hair dryer to melt the ice build up. It happbed a couple of times so I know that there is a cause for this which may be the defrost heater but I am not sure how to confirm this. Let me know if you have any ideas.

SOURCE: blowing cold air but not cold enough to keep frige cold

IF there is frost on the back wall inside the the freezer section about 12 inches from the bottom , you have a defrost problem . If there is no frost on the rear wall , then you probably have a bad overload/relay (part # 2188840 ) . This piece is the part which is plugged onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . Unplug it from the compressor and shake it . If it rattles , replace it .

the drain tube from the freezer to the lower compressor area is plugged with ice or debris,and when it defrosts the water in the drip pan behind the evaporator back cover inside the freezer thaws and cant drain down and overflows down thru the damper vent door to the refrigerator,remove the rear panel inside the freezer shut off unit and let thaw,then take a wire and work it down this drain hole till water comes out at the bottom of this drain tube located in the rear

I have a samsung fridge/freezer. Production date 2007. Model#RS20NRSV5/XSA both the fridge an freezer not getting cold The lights are on but no cold air.An cant hear anything working at the back.

Your compressor is not working that's why its not cooling and you cant hear anything.
Possible cause:
  1. thermostat is set to off or defective
  2. defective capacitor that's why your compressor failed to run.
  3. defective compressor motor
  4. Freon leak or no freon at all.
  1. check thermostat switch or relay
  2. check capacitor and wiring.
  3. check compressor motor.
  4. Check Freon pressures.

I have an amana bottom freeze abb2227dew the freezer is working fine but the frige isn't cold?

check the regulator or thermostat for the fridge and set it well.
if it is well set then your compressor is losing compression.

Freezer has quit freezing only a little over a year old. manufactor date 6/2009 compressor is running will only cool down to 50 degrees thermostat set on coldest.

Is the compressor continually running? If so then there could be a leak in the system or the compressor is damaged. If it's running then stopping, the cold control (thermostat) could be damaged.

Freezer and Refrigerator wont get cold

Good day,
Looks as if you covered most bases.
You didn't say if the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running. Open the freezer door. You should be able to see and hear it. if not, remove the rear panel in the freezer and inspect and replace if needed. If no luck here......
Based on everything you said, it sounds as if you have a serious problem with the sealed system which includes the compressor.

You do not recharge a refrigerator. You fix the leaks, and then recharge. But it could be a restriction in the internal system, or possibly bad valves in the compressor.

In either case, you'll need a qualified tech to sort it out.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Blowing cold air but not cold enough to keep frige cold

if one of the panels in the fridge has frost on it, the evaporator coils may be iced up. this restricts the cold air flow. to defrost: empty the fridge and freezer, turn it off, remove the panel in the freezer that has the frost, use a hairdryer and defrost the ice buildup, sop up excess water, dry it up, replace the panel, turn it on (while it's empty), set the temp halfway, and close the doors. when the compressor turns off, fill the fridge. if the panels are frostless and the coils are warm, you may be out of refrigerant from a freon leak somewhere. it might be cheaper to replace the fridge.

My frige in not getting cold it just started today the lights are on but its not getting cold i

Do you hear the compressor running? This is a problem with lots of possibles. Things that keep the comp from running, thermostat, defrost timer stuck in defrost, failed electrical components on comp.
If it is running the condenser fan might not be, the coils could be dirty, the light is not turning off when the door is closed (which usually results in a warm frig only, freezer is ok). Eric

Light on no fan

it sounds as though the thermostat is faulty not bringing the compressor on and the defrost timer is turning the fan off and on as it should do

Freezer is freezing but fridge is not cold as it was

Sounds like defrost timer is not putting the refrigerator in defrost every 8 hours. You freezer should be below -5 degrees. Also the condenser beneath the refrigerator possibly needs cleaning. First slowly turn the defrost timer clockwise until freezer goes in defrost. You should hear the sound of crackling noise in freezer after about one minute into defrost. If timer does not come out of defrost or does not turn itself then replace it. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezers cold but refrigerators warm

see if there is a big block of ice on the back plate in your frige, if there is then your thermostat is set to cold or broken. if no ice in the frige then it has a gas leak!
