It sounds like it is stuck in the defrost mode. Try to find the defrost timer and turn the knob a quarter turn. If this solves the problem , replace the defrost timer. Usually the defrost timer is underneath either in front behind the grill or in back near one of the corners. Sometimes it is in the fridge compartment behind the light cover or in the ceiling. Sometimes (rarely) its even in the freezer. The wiring diagram may give a clue.

Fridge not getting cold...but freezer is working


the fridge gets its cold air from the freezer fan blowing it through small air passages between the freezer and fridge. when you adjust the temperature in the fridge you are increasing/decreasing the amount of air being let into the fridge. Two common problems that could cause the freezer to freeze but not the fridge getting cool is the freezer coil is frooze like a ice cube blocking the air going to the fridge or freezer fan is not working could be bad or froze up due to too much ice. If fan works after manually defrosting problem could be in the auto defrost mechanism. If fan don't work after manual defrost replace fan. Manual defrost by putting a pot of very hot water in freezer with door closed change water foten until defrosted.

Fridge leaking water supply off


The water is defrosted frost from the cold coils. Look for ice at the bottom of the freezer at the back wall. Carefully remove back panel. Most often the problem is that the drain hole to the pan underneath the fridge is blocked. and then it gets further blocked with ice as defrosted water cannot drain away. Clear carefully with a hairdryer, Clean drain hole with hot water and a turkey baster. Shoot water through to the pan below. If ice comes back in a few weeks you need to troubleshoot defrost heater circuit. Most common bad parts in order are defrost thermostat, defrost timer, fuses in defrost circuit which don't reset.

Repeated ice over the coil


The defrost cycle is either failing to start (problem with defrost timer) or is not heating the defrost coil (most often defective defrost thermostat.)

When you defrosted did you remove the panel at the back of the freezer to defrost the drain hole for the defrosted water to drain out?

Freezer is cold and collecting frost, refrig isn't cooling.


you may have to remove the floor of the freezer. At times they fill with water and freeze. and you cannot see the layer of ice under there. This ice can form in the channel that allows the cold air into the fridge. another suggestion would be to put the fridge on the lowest setting then raise it up about 3-4 hours apart. hope this helps. Good luck.

Kenmore fridge not working, ice cubes wet, freezer frosting up


You may need a new defrost module. The coils ice up when it is not working. This makes the fridge and freezer only a little cold. About 150 to 250 bucks to fix if you call a service person. Under a hundred for the part.

Freezer works fine but the fridge won't get cold


It sounds like cold air from the freezer isn't making it to the fridge compartment. This can be cause by a several things. The damper that lets air into the fresh food side is stuck in "closed" position, the temp sensor (t-stat) isn't working properly, the evaporator fan (in the freezer comp above the coils) isn't working to blow air up to the fresh food section. In some situations, the defrost cycle for the freezer section isn't working and the coils have frozen into a block of ice and air can't flow over them properly so you get not cold air to the fresh food section but the freezer still stays cold due to the block of ice.
