Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Can you tell me why please?


All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....

Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.

Seven Rules for Replacing a Refrigerator


Here are seven rules of thumb that can keep your purchase of a replacement refrigerator from becoming a continuing drain on your pocketbook:
1) Don't buy a refrigerator bigger than you need. One rule is to choose a model that has 10 cubic feet of food storage for a family of two and then add an extra cubic foot for each additional person in the household. The freezer should be 40 to 45 percent as large as the food storage section. Thus a family of 4 will want to pick a model that is between16.5 and 17.5 cubic feet, and a family of 6 might choose a model that is about 20 cubic feet.
2) Side-by-side refrigerator/freezers use more energy than units with the freezer above or below the fresh food compartment. Side-by-sides also take up more space for the same storage volume.
3) Through-the-door features, like cold water or automatic ice dispensers, impose as much as a 20 percent penalty in increased electricity usage as compared to similar models without these extras.
4) Manual defrost models use less energy than automatic defrost units, consuming as much as one-third less. However, you should defrost the freezer when 1/4 inch of frost has accumulated.
5) Two refrigerators use more electricity than a single large refrigerator with equivalent storage space. And it is never a good idea to keep a half empty "his" refrigerator in the garage with beer and soda, while a "hers" refrigerator is in the kitchen with room to spare.
6) Don't let an old, inefficient refrigerator pass onto the used appliance market - recycle it for parts only. If your old refrigerator earns a negative investment return for you, it won't reward a family that must pay $50 or $80 on top of the hefty energy bills.
7)) Look for the Energy Star label. It is a quick and easy way to avoid paying for a mistake with each month's electricity bill.

Frig not working freezer is great


If your fridge is old you maybe have a leak, crack, blockage in the fridge part...or at first step check your temp controls ...should be knobs in freezer as well as in bottom of fridge...sounds simple but overlooked at times. If fridge is a n older model especially if its located in a hot room it takes alot of freon and at times they are not equipped to get cold in extreme hot storage temps.

I have a brand new French door electrolux refrigerator. It was just delivered today. The water dispenser doesn't give cold water - just room temperature. It's only been plugged in for 8 hrs but I...


We have had two different Electrolux French door refrigerators, over the past 2 years and the water never becomes cold. We were told this is because the the storage tank in this particular refrigerator is so small. You just have to drink your water with ice. Unfortunately, we have had recurrent problems with the ice maker as well! Sorry - but these refrigerators are very problematic and I would not recommend them to anyone!!!!!!

We have a roper frig that we use for vaccine storage, the freezer does not stay cold enought for their storage; if we adjust to freezer temp for vaccines then refrigerator is too cold for storage


Good day,
Usually caused by the machine in a cool area or room, along with the machine not getting enough door action, both freezer and fresh food.

Domestic refrigerators are designed to be used as just that. Domestic refrigerators.
Normal kitchen temperatures, followed by minimum of 7 freezer door openings per day spread over 14 hours as well as 22 to 26 fresh food door openings over the same period of time.

In other words, it's not getting enough activity daily. Common problem in doctor offices.

The best model for that type of application in the past was the Amana bottom freezer model. where the primary control was located in the freezer, nailing the freezer temp, and the top controlled by a pneumatic damper controlling the fresh food section, but I do not know if their current model still uses that system.

One option,space permitting is a small chest type freezer added to what you have.

Motor running, but freezer not freezing items.Second hand fridge was working from 10 Feb 2010 stopped freezing on the 19 Feb 2010 Gold Star GR 252 fds


First of all you have to check if the fan is working properly because this is the one responsible for "taking the cold out" from the evaporator and into the freezer

Gold star compact refrigerator has very hot backside


Leave it alone, it is totally correct. That is the radiator and it is supposed to get rid of heat through the radiator. You even have heaters in the sides of the fridge called mullon heaters.
