Gravity - cold air sinks to bottom of refrigerator. Make sure the damper door is open and allowing cold air from freezer to infiltrate into refrigerator.

Frigidaire top-mount refig. freezer won't get cold ,temp.stays around 26 degrees, refrig. don't keep milk cold enough


check that the evaporator fan motor ,located in freezer is working.it circulates the cold air.also check that the coils behind freezer back panel are not iced up,this would indicate a lack of defroting due to,timer,heating element,or bi-metal.lastly when the refrig is running those coils should get frost over them all,if not you may be low on refigerant

If this is struggling to maintain temperature like this, either the system is low on gas (motor running all the time) or the fan has stopped which you should be able to hear. Make sure that the fan is not just jammed.also check the return air vent in the fridge as if this gets stuck with a spillage ie O.J. etc, the fridge cannot get air from the freezer and the freezer runs continually (-30) but the thermostat never cuts out in the fridge. Last idea most likely.

Frezzer works refig not getting cold


sounds like it is a fan issue - there is a fan the blows the cold air from the freezer section in to the refrig section, stick ur head in the refrig section and see if you hear a fan running - you probably wont - you will actually probably start to notice that the freezer section is getting really really cold, like to the point of a deep freeze... the good news is that as long as the freezer section is cold your compressor is still working, so this will not be all that spendy to fix...

We have a refig.. with top freezer. Freezer works fine, refrig. is not working, motor still runs when turned up. About 8 years old. What could be wrong?


Make sure the fan in the freezer is running. if it is . More than likely the vent has ice in it. take the bottom out of the freezer and you can get to it. throw the ice and then check the drain. is right behind the vent.

The fridge is 4 the freezer is 4 the problem is fridge warm


Can you hear a fan motor blowing or feel air blowing in the freezer section? I'm thinking this fan has quit running and is not distributing air to the refrig section. If this fan is running then check that you can feel air blowing out of the vent at the top of the refig section if not check that the damper is open. you can do this by removing the grill on the vent (it just snaps out) as warm as the refrig is this should be wide open.
The fan os the most likely and most commonly seen problem for me. the part number is 12002744 and is approx 40 dollars. this is a fairly easy fix if your mechanicly inclined. if you call a service company you will be looking at 150-250 depending on the company.
If you have any further questions leave me a comment here thanks Peyton

Frigidaire side/side refri section warm


Oceanrunner, it looks like a couple of things might be going on: One is how much defrosting did you do. If it was a full defrost, you might have too many door openings going on. This causes condensation. Do a full defrost and then be sure the door is closed when not actually getting things in/out. Don't forget to check to see if your condenser coils are clean. If not, clean 'em! That may fix it.

It is possible that your defrost timer is defective but I think not based on your defrost cycle starting. It is possible that the defrost coil is bad. This means that you'll have to access the coil and check if for continuity. Typically, this is located with the coils and below them in the back of the freezer. One wire on each side. Unplug the box...Wiggle 'em to clear any corrosion... Unplug..If you've got a multimeter, check for about 100 ohms between the terminals...You can then turn the unit on and wait. See what happens. If frosting begins, actuate the defrost cycle. (Frosting should be even after about 5 minutes or so across they pipes. If the gas level is low, the frosting will not be even.)

Some cold water units run through the coils. If they get too cold...they freeze. This is caused by low gas or by frosting from other sources. Don't panic: this unit has an extended warranty on the sealed unit...the compressor and all that...for 5 years. That means the gas, too. Call your manufacturer for service.
