SOURCE: refrigerator doesnt get cold enough

If you remove the back panel on the inside of the cabinet then you would be able to check the evaporator coil (cold bit) and see if it is frozen up. If it is then defrost the system and see if you have any improvement. All the things you have pointed out over the compressor is normal, they do run incredibly hot. If you have got the freezer on a very cold setting I would suggest bringing both setpoints to a mid range setting. Check the temp in the fridge by measuring liquid temp as air temp is prone to fluctuate more. If you still have a concern I would suggest contacting a fridge guy to assist you. Hope this is of some if not limited help.

SOURCE: Freezer quits working

Good Day, I live out in Ca. and have only experience temp's like what you guys endure once in my lifetime. But I grew up, with Bart Starr, he was my guy, leading the Pac. in the Ice Bowl. I'm hoping to get one of the guys to add to my comments I'm going to suggest to you, there are many guys more qualified with more experience than I, that might offer more. Sometimes with Refrigerators and Freezers, is that during periods of long cold spells, the appliances can actually NOT produce enough Run-time to sustain the foods inside. In other words, because its so damn cold it will go off and if the thermostat doesn't sense the temp has risen to the point it needs to come back on, it won't. Ice creams, because of the salt content, bread (it has no density) these will be the first foods to be effected. 20yrs ago I remember we have a strip heater... wr49x211 I think it was, to add heat to get the thermostat to cycle back on.... Check around, ask -Re-post and List it.. I want somebody who knows Refer's, Lives and Works in tough weather... that'll get an answer

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

SOURCE: my freezers works but my refrigerator

make sure all your fans are turning. maybe try to remove the knobs and see if you can turn them without the knobs, possibly they could be stripped.

What could the problem be; my refrigerator not cold but the freezer is freezing?


If your refrigerator freezer compartment is cold, but the refrigerator compartment is warm--It could be a defrost problem. When a defrost problem occurs, it is usually the fault of one or more of three basic parts: defrost timer/adaptive defrost control, freezer thermostat or the defrost heater element.

The freezer is cold but the refrigerator section is not getting cold...it is not warm but not cold according to the dial settings


check the operation of the damper door between the freezer/refrigerator section which lets cold from freezer into refrige compartment for ice build-up which will cause damper door to not open fully and cool the refrige compartment,if this is the problem,unplug the door ans remove and let thaw then replace and try it then

The top of the freezer part is getting cold but the bottom of the Refrigerator part is not getting cold. The Refrigerator is only 10-11 months old ; what is wrong?


you need to check and see if the fan in the back of the freezer compartment is running. when the fan is not running the cold air will not be passed to the refrigerator compartment. open the freezer door and turn the unit to its coldest setting until the compressor kicks in then listen to hear the fan in the freezer compartment.

The fridge is not working although the freezer is fine. the fridge temp is showing 24 and i cant change it


Feel with your hand for the spot where you feel the cold air entering into the refrigerator compartment.
Look for something near the area that says more/less cold. Sounds like the air flow is stuck open allowing too much air from the freezer compartment entering into the refrigerator compartment. A refrigerator works off the basics of recieving cold air from the freezer compartment.
