Put a thermometer in the refrigerator and one in the freezer to see what it reads each day when you had the freezer open it it coses it to work harder like having an air conditioner on with the window open it has to work harder to keep it cold so by recording them temp to see if its dropping or it stays the same you might have to get it looked at but for just getting it a week ago it should not have hurt anything just leaving it open a little bit might just be normal for it to be hot i have a side by side and the side is hot but not to hot just warm. let me know hope that helps

Freezer is frosting and refrigerator is warm.


As far as your freezer frosting up, sounds like a door seal problem, run your fingers along the seam of the door seal, there should be no splits/holes in the seal.
As far as the refrigerator either there is a secondary fan motor, or there is a obstruction blocking the air movement, if the freezer has a bad seal, its suspect ice is still building up.

Refridgerator and Freezer Not Cooling (2 year old fridge)


Some of these had problems with the door light switches between the doors. They also control the fans. The top and bottom both have fans in back. Try opening top door and holding door light switch in. Wait for a couple minutes to see if fan comes on. Try with freezer too. If not coming on may need switch.

Our Kenmore is a side by side with ice maker. It's about 6 years old. The ice maker quit making ice about a year ago. We didn't get it fixed. Now our refridgerator section won't cool. The freezer works...


Find the vent in the refrig that gets the air blown in from the freezer. When the unit is running you should feel air coming out of it. If not then you have a problem with the damper door. you can manually open the damper door but you might have to adjust it so it does'nt send in too much freezer air and freeze stuff.

REFRIG WILL NOT GET ANYTHING COLD


make sure there is no frost buildup behinde the freezer back panal and the ducts to the frig are clear. Leaving the door open will make a lot of frost and diminish the cooling capacity.

We left the freezer door open all night by accident two days ago


I turned the fridge side off on mine, and left it overnight (last night!). This morning there is frozen stuff in the freezer. I think the compressor motor just needed ALOT of time to cool down b4 it would work properly again

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.

Fridge not working


I've had this happen to my Kenmore 73503 several times. The 1st time took me a few hours to figure out what the problem was.

Basically the fridge is cooled from the freezer, so when you say your freezer is -2 degrees, it's a big tip off to the problem.

If you look very close in the freezer compartment at the back, you'll notice an opening with a little door at the top of the freezer compartment. This opening extends up the inside of the back of the fridge to the top of the fridge area via a square plastic tube.

Basically what happens in my fridge is the family loads the freezer to high especially at the top/back. This restricts or closes off the opening for the cold air to the fridge portion of the appliance ....resulting in a warm fridge, but cold freezer. Just remove the articles at the back of the freezer to correct problem. (It will take a few hours for the cold air to cool the fridge down)

Note: the temperature control unit in the fridge area controls the little door at the top of the freezer compartment, so if you haven't blocked off the opening, the next place to look would be either at the mechanical parts of the little door or the temperature control unit itself in the fridge

Freezer works but refridgerator warm


you could find ice behind the back panel - worth a check. however the problem is probably ice in the return vent from fridge to freezer and the only way to cure is to switch off and leave for a day with doors open. if im right and you try this, if it re-occurs you may have a problem with the defrost system
