Admiral fridge side by side model HMG65158 Fresh food side not cold enough

My understanding is that whirlpool took over Admiral and May Tag and I can't find help from either one.
I need help with my side by side fridge.
The freezer side works well and produces ice, no problem here.
The fresh food side the temperature barley reaches 56ยบ and it is not cooling well enough.
I have cleaned the coils and re set the thermostat for the fresh food sides and I only gain a bit more of cooling, I can here the motor and the click of the thermostat when I advance or ****** the cooling knob.
The all around door seals are in good shape and I don't detect any loss of cold temperature around the doors.
Is there any other thing that I my try and see if I can get a better cooling setting?
I'll appreciate very much any help on this matter.

Thanks Ed

turn the freezer up to highest setting and set the refrigerator control to about half way. this will block some of the airflow into the refrigerator.

sounds like a defrost problem. most of the time it's the heaters behind the coils.

Check the condenser fan, listen and see if it kicks on, if it doesn't then find someone that know how to take it apart and change them.

Admiral american fridge freezer constantly blowing cold air into fridge compartment.


Changing the freezer settings won't really make a difference because regardless its still going to be freezing. The way the machine works is the freezer cools the fridge, and there should be a control in the fridge that operates the baffles in the airway between the freezer and fridge and reduces the amount of air that enters into the fresh food section.

My Admiral HMG241777 is not cold, freezer is okay.


Most reasons for fresh food section not cold but freezer ok is a defrost problem or evaporator fan not functioning. Look at the back of the freezer, if it is covered by frost it is not defrosting and will not circulate air properly.

Problem with fridge ice maker


assuming the freezer is cold enough and that you have a valid water supply hooked up, either the icemaker is bad or the water valve is bad, best idea is to replace both.

Admiral side by side


All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.

Does freezer cool like the cold food section? Did this suddenly happen, and frozen food began to thaw?  Most freezers control the cooling in the cold food section. The freezer must work fine before the cold food section will work fine. Let us know more, Thanks JT
