If it is not in the center of the back of the freezer then it may not have a control for the freezer. the control for the freezer is just a flap that allows more or less air into the refrigerator side. so the only thermostat in a refrigerator is the one in the refrigerator side.

What does the red button on the temperature dial do? I pushed it in while adjusting the temp dial and can't get it to pop out again.


My fridge does not have any red button.
I think you ought to mention the Brand, make, model of your fridge for any help.

I remember older fridges (over 20 yrs ago) had a de-frost button. they will pop out again once the frost on the freezer melts completely.

Bottom of fridge not cold


After adjusting the settings switch or dial (usually inside fridge) you wait a couple of hours then see if bottom is colder. Most fridges (older models anyway) have an adjustment procedure. This worked for our Magic Chef purchased about 1994

I had ge refrigerator and the fridge is not cooling well


For starters a year and model number would be helpful. Do you have turn dials to contol temp of freezer and fridge or electonic pushbuttons? The fridges with manual rotating dials use a "dampner" between the freezer and fridge section. In short the freezer evap fan blows air in the freezer but also has a passage from the freezer to the fridge section which aloows a controled amount of air from the feezer section to cool the fridge section. IThis passage may be obstructed by ice build up or some other blockage. Units prior to 2002 are not controled by circuit boards and the ones after 2002 are. For more specific help give me the GE fridge model please.

Our whirlpool 6 yr old refrig / freezer is not working correctly


Use a vacuum and clean under your fridge. A dryer cleaning brush will help make the job go much faster. Use a good light so you can get all the lint out. Give it 12 hours to level out. hope this is helpfull.. Saw

Freezer woks fine but the fridge not working


sounds as if the evaporaator fan inside the fridge between the fridge and freezer is out. This fan is located between the freezer and fridge in the same area as the control switch for the temp. This fan isn't hard to replace you just need to take care of the removal of the plastic cover. Once the cover is removed the fan is accessed easily. Take the model and serial number to an appliance parts house for the proper part. Good Luck
