I had the same problem. As a child I hung with the men working and remember them saying the freezer has to have space in back away from the walls so the coils don't freeze up. Defrost the freezer completely of all ice and water. This time even thought the instructions say give 2-4 inches of space from the back wall so the coils won't freeze up try 8 or 10 inches away from the back wall. The fridge may stick out some from the space it's supposed to be in but it hasn't froze up yet.

The refrigerator is not cooling


Do you find that the freezer section is freezing up more too.
If you place you hand at the top of the fridge you should feel the cold air blowing through and also hear the fan kicking in to chill with door open. If freezer section is freezing up open freezer door press the door switch in and hold it in. you should hear the fan kick in. If not it could be frozen and all the channel too . you can take back panel off and remove the ice or switch it off and defrost it . Try this and let me know out come.

The lower part of my samsung cooltech fridge is freezing all food.


Hi nalin, sounds like you may have a problem with with your defrost timer. Defrost timers can fail due to wear and tear. If this happens during the cooling mode, it will allow excessive frost to accumulate on the cooling coils causing the refridgeration compartment to over shoot its chilling operation in turn causing everything to freeze. Best bet would be to call up a local Appliance Service Technician while the fridge is still manageable so you save on time and money. Also it wouldnt be a bad idea checking the thermostat rotational knob on the rear inner wall of the fridge (if there is one) just to make sure that the machine isnt fully dialed to max chill, hope this helps.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their 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.

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...

Both top sections fridge/freezer of my side by side are not cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.

Refrigator not cooling properly, freezer works fine


I'll assume you don't have much food/items in the freezer section. Because you have the fridge set on the max cooling setting and the freezer set higher than the mid setting, it could be that you have frozen the cold air passage from the freezer to the fridge.

If you can, 1) remove all contents that would spoil; 2) turn off the fridge 3) open both doors and allow the fridge to manually thaw out completely (this will speed up the opening of the cold air exchange passage between the freezer and fridge, which is likely blocked and frozen solid. Have plenty of towels handy to soak up the water from the defrosting process,

After a FULL day of being left off and doors open to thaw out, check for any further thawing and dripping water inside, if present wait another 8 hours (you really want to get it thawed out the first time!) When that's done, reset BOTH temperature controls to the factory mid-point setting (5?) as marked on your control knobs.

The key to having a refridgerator run properly is to allow for it to run at the factory settings for at least 24 hours BEFORE you adjust the controls higher and/or lower for each section. Adjust it up or down in ONLY 1 setting increments so as to not cause ice build-up and freezing of the internal air exchange passages.

Also, as you've relegated this fridge as a garage "beer & backup" unit, make sure to keep the freezer as full as possible to make it run as efficiently as possible. You can freeze jugs of water and pack it with cheap thrift store bread to help it run correctly. An empty freezer has to work harder to keep just air at freezing temps. As such, it will pass much colder air into the fridge, and cause these types of freeze ups. By the way, turning up the temp controls only makes it worse and just results in a total "freeze up" inside the cabinet panels that you can't easily see or get at to rectify, hence the reason to shut it off and let it fully defrost.

When you're done, you should have your fridge back in action working like it should, but remember, don't rush temperature adjustments, even thou we all want those frosty beverages, it'll take a couple of days to achieve the desired "chill" you're likely used to getting when it was your primary fridge.

Hope this helps and Best Regards! Semper Fi!

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

Too cold in bottom section


Had the same problem and referred to another post regarding ice build up around the evaporator coils in the freezer unit. I had no ice build up but flat foil guard had dropped down across the freezer outlet which caused more cold air to be forced up into the lower section of the fridge. This caused the freezing of the vegetables.
Follow barkbugs steps first www.fixya.com/support/t970724-fisher_paykel_fridge_freezer and see if that is the problem.
Also while starting to remove items from the freezer check to see if something has moved back and is blocking the air vent. Even a packet of food may cause enough blockage. A slicker pad was also part of our problem.
