Hi,
This is most likely one of few things.
1.Defrost is not functioning remove lower back wall panel of freezer and observe for frosted up coils. If frosted check these defrost heater,defrost thermostat, and defrost timer item 257. See parts diagrams. You can turn knob on timer clockwise slowly until you hear it go into a defrost mode with a large flat screwdriver to test if heater comes on then but coils are frosted bad enough to block air flow replace the timer if heater does not come on replace heater and thermostat.
2.If coils not frosted up check evaporator fan item 610 for operation. If not operating replace it.
3.If all of the above appear to be OK then you may a leak in the system.

Parts diagrams....

Check for a device called a damper in the refrigerator compartment. It controls how much cold air from the freezer is sent to the refrigerator. In my recent experience with a bad damper in a GE side by side, the damper door broke and the refrigerator got too cold. The damper door could be broken or the motor failed and left the door closed. If this happens, the refrigerator compartment will not get enough cold air from the freezer and run warmer than normal. Check the appliance parts web sites for a breakdown of you model. You may find it's a major disassembly to get to the control. What I did was remove the bad part and control the airflow from the freezer with a partial blockage until I got a new part and the time to repair it.

GE refrigerator won't keep cool


check the voltage going into you fan w/ the old main board and also w/ the new board. You might be getting a low voltage w/ your new board or the fan you replaced is for a diferent voltage. Have you tried to put the old fan back w/ the new board??

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator not cooling


Hello danielscynt,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, freezer is fine the refrigerator is 50-65 does not get colder than 50.the evaporator fan is working but it seems to be blowing very little air
Have a 1998 Hotpoint Model # CTX16CAZDRAD Serial # ZS738209. The refrigerator is not cooling. Temp is at 66 degrees with setting at 5. The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time. Please help!

There are a few things that come to mind!

The Freezer is working, but it seems to be running all the time, you said!.
This could be a bad thermostat!

But lets try some simple maintenance first!
Is your freezer packed too the hilt with packages???????
Where the articles cover the air vents in the freezer?

The freezer and the fridge share the cold air and the passages must not be blocking the cold air from moving out of the freezer!.Search your freezer !

Also your fridge is 10 years old!
Did you ever remove the plastic grille at the bottom of the fridge along the front, and GENTLY run a refrigerator brush along the black metal tubes running back and forth under the fridge?
( You can buy this brush at any hardware store $10.)
They must not be covered in ten years of lint and dust. These narrow tubes carry the freon and run in this parallel fashion back and forth, so they are cooled by the air being **** through them.
if not and they overheat your fridge will get warm.

If the tubes are found to be covered or submerged in dust sometimes I have found them one to two inches thick in dust, and sometimes they are even not visible until you clean the dust out.
Then it will take 10 to 24 hours for the system to get back to full working temperature again. As long as the heat did not cause permanent damage!

if these are not the answer, then you may need a hands on diagnoses!
BUT, most of the time these two things are what I find!

Let me know how it goes!!!!!!!!

Thank You for asking my advice!
Huuum

Side by Side GE Hotpoint Refrigerator HSS251FMCC


You may have a double problem. One, you state that the damper stays shut. if the box is running 50 degrees, it should be wide open, My question is, do you think because that there is no air from the damper that it is closed? The usual problem on these units is that it is not defrosting and the evap coil gets blocked with ice. This will cause an air flow problem to the ref side, although the freezer seems to work. The most likely cause is a bad defrost heater. If not, then possible a bad damper if it is not opening.
