Vegetables in crisper are frozen, as well as liquids in bottom 1/2 of fridge door. The fridge & freezer temp controls won't adjust to our settings. Also, we're getting ice, but no water will dispense.


The freezer cools the refrigerator, so you actually get very cold air passing from the freezer to the refrig. The air from the freezer enters the refrig on the top and falls to the bottom where it is drawn back into the freezer. The temperature of the refrig is regulated by a thermostat and a fan that runs when the thermostat calls for cooling. If the refrig thermostat is faulty and causes the fan to run more than it should, there will be a freezing problem in the refrig at the bottom because cold air falls and warm air rises. If the refrig is thermostat is calling for cooling constantly, this will take more cold air from the freezer than is normal. Your freezer temp might be higher than normal and the refrig will be colder then desired. If the fan from the freezer is running constantly I would suspect a bad refrig thermostat.

Kenmore Refrig Model 596.50699000, not getting cold as should. Frost forming on top row of coils only?????


Clean the condenser. Probably below refrig. Reset all settings to mid point and check to see if you have a restricted drain tube.

My maytag refrig. is 3 years old. model #747908 HS520AS. freezer on bottom-refrig on top. the refrig part is not staying cold. have cleaned under frig and vaccumed back and underneath and it still is not...


Hi,

All the cooling coils for this model are in the freezer section. There is a fan down there behind the back wall on the top. This fan directs air up to the fresh food section.

Check the temperature of the freezer you can do this by inspecting the ice cream, if the ice cream is soft you are above 5 degrees F. If you have a good cold freezer then the problem is with air flow, the evaporator fan that I spoke of could be bad).

If your freezer temperature is not as cold as it should be you may have a defrost problem, look for any signs of frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section, if you see frost you will most likely need to put in a new control.

If the freezer temperature is warmer than normal and you do not have frost you may have a sealed system leak, this will require a technician for sure.

Refrigerator cold control doesn't work; temperature stays at or below freezing. Freezer control OK.


check the damper door between the refrige and freezer compartments,its behind a plastic cover,if its iced up in the fully open condition it will allow too much cold air into the refrige,if this is the case defrost it with a hair dryer and recheck operation,otherwise the temp control in the refrige is bad

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

Yes, if your freezer is cold but fan is not circulating cold air into frig compartment then you should replace it . You will have to take off back panel of freezer to access it but is easy to replace. Hope this helps

Freezer stays cold but refrig does not


Hi, Look and see if there is frost built up in the freezer on the back wall.
If there is frost, it will not let air circulate properly and it means there is a problem in you self defrosting cycle.
Please let me know if this is what you find so that I can assist you further.

Thanks
