I have a Samsung refrigerator (side by side freezer and fridge). Eventhough the fridge side says 34 degrees, it isn't cooling. Freezer side is fine. What can I do?
I have a GSS22JEMDBB made by GE my freezer coils keep freezing up into a chunk of ice, how do I keep it from doing that?

Re: refrigerator not cooling
See if the compressor motor is running
compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's
on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it
is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still
not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of
several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified
appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.
- Provide details, support with references or personal experience.

Brand name and model number would help. It should be inside the refrigerator section usually on the upper right wall.

The way you've stated your problem is confusing? The temperature is the freezer should be 5 degrees F or below, preferably at 0 degrees F. The refrigerator side should be anywhere from 34 - 38 degrees F, What exactly is the problem your having, fresh food not cooling but freezer works ok?
it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way
When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower
the the set temperature
for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree.
some times those friges fail to calibrate them self
tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds
and replug it
then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours
If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.
soiunds like the coil on the refrigerator side is iced up.take and open the refrfigerator side and take a blow drier and after removing the 11 screws use the hair drier to slowly melt the icec behind the cover. If you pull too hard and or too soon you'll break the stryofoam ductin that has to be around the coil. then make sure that the drain line is clear reassemble and have a Merry Christmas!
