I had to finally call for service. He cleaned the coils which were plugged with dust and cat hair. It didn't fix the problem completely so I called them back out. This time I was told I had the opening in the back of the refrigerator blocked by tall bottles. That was what controlled the amount of airflow from the freezer section to the fridge part. You're not supposed to keep anything directly under it. The higher you set the fridge, the more the vent opens to allow the flow of cold air in. I also moved the food in my freezer away from the air openings. Nobody had ever mentioned this to me before. The combination of the two (Vacuuming coils and Freeing up the airflow) actually worked.

My freezer works fine. The fridge only gets a little cool. There is a grocery saver button and a acceler ice2 button in the fridge. If I push the acceler ice2 button it will get cold enough but the button...

I would have a apliance guy come check it out, if its an old fridge it probly needs to be recharged with freeon or r12 but r12 is illegal to use withought liscence and they dont use r12 in new fridges anymore. Good luck.

Freezer is working but fridge is warm

check u tube for problem solving videos.

I have had this problem and the only problem was the defrost tube was blocked and so the defrost either got stuck on the defrost cycle (either freezing up or heating trying to complete the defrost cycle, not cooling). The service guy just disconnected a tube that ran down the outside back of the fridge to the tray at the bottom, blew on it to clear it, ran some water down the tube and billed me $100 .

I had a subzero which has the tube inside the fridge and did the same thing to fix it. Another solution is that the condenser coil is covered in dust and blocked. Apparently if the condensor is not working (ie dust ruined it so it must be replaced) it blows cool air out the vent,OR if the Freon or cooling agent needs to be topped up, there is a good video mshowing how to do that yourself and save a service call.

My fridge/freezer is not cooling. I had a service

The reason that the service guy to you to just toss the unit, is probably due to the fact that repair or replacement of certain system components might end up costing more than just replacing the unit. If there is a refrigerant leak for instance. The time needed to try to find the leak, might end up costing you $500, then depending if the leak could even be found, it would then need to be fixed, probably for around $100. Now you are into an older fridge for $600, and hopefully all goes well from there. On the other hand if after searching for a leak for several hours, and not being able to find it, which does happen, are you still going to want to pay the $500, and still not have a working fridge? This is the reason a guy might have "simply" said "toss it". If on the other hand, you don't think the tech even looked at the unit, then I would suggest having a reputable company take a look at it. Hope this helps

Not good news, it sounds like a compressor problem. Vacuum clean everthing you can safely get to in order to make it eaiser for the repair guy, (hopefully to save money). How old is the fridge?

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling

we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone
