SOURCE: Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough

If the problem just gradually started happening, it's possibly the defrost cycle that's not working right. Fridge doesn't defrost, the cooling system ices up, and the cold air can no longer travel through the fridge.

You can tell that's the problem if you fully defrost the fridge (turn it off for a day), then start it up again. If it works OK for a while, then does the same thing after a few weeks that's what it is. Either way, you need a repair person to fix it, or you need to defrost it regularly, but then what do you do with your food while you do that???

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Either you have a defrost problem blocking airflow to the fresh food section or you have a blockage in the vent. You're going to have to unplug the refrigerator look in the back of the freezer and see if there's ice build-up on the rear wall of the freezer. Try again with that model number I do not believe that is the correct model number it should have Mod: before the model number.

Kitchenaid superba side by side top is too warm,


The defrost cycle is suppose to be automatic on this model. To see if you have a defrost problem take the lower container out of the freezer, and empty the bottom shelves enough to see the back panel inside the freezer. If there is a build up of frost on the panel or the slots in the lower back panel the automatic defrost is not functioning. The most likely suspect is the ADC or automatic defrost control. This control runs about $120.00 and is located in the console of the fresh food section (top).

If there is no frost check to see if the fan in the freezer is running. If the fan is not running you have a failure of the fan motor which is a little less expensive but a bit more challenging to replace, the shelves, the shelf slides and back panel of the freezer have to come out to replace this motor.

Freezer on top model. freezer works fine. Refg. isn't cold. light works. frig. isn't room temp so SOME cool air is getting in - not enough to preserve food.


The duct that allows the air to the bottom has frozen over. Put remaining food in an ice chest and unplug the unit for about six to eight hours. This will allow the ice to clear and restore airflow. If you want to hurry the process then you can use a hair dryer and blow it through the opening in the rear top of the refrigerator. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Top is not cooling, sn no cold air is coming into top. Freezer seems to be working


SOUNDS LIKE THE CIRCULATING FAN IS WEARING OUT. THIS PROBLEM IS VERY HARD TO DIAGNOSE BECAUSE THE FAN SPINS BUT NOT FAST ENOUGH TO CIRCULATE CHILLED AIR THRU THE FREEZER AND REFRIGERATOR. THE MINIMUM COST FOR PARTS AND LABOR IS AROUND $300.00. THE FAN IS LOCATED BEHIND THE BACK PANEL OF THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT.

sounds like the FF(Freezer Fan) is starting to wear out. This fan problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan will still spin but not fast enough to circulate chilled air thru the freezer as well as the refrigerator.
