Fridge too cold!


don't forget that just turning down your fridge temp dose not mean your problem might be over yet. the freezer setting may also be too high & that will affect your fridge temp as well. i set both my control settings to around 50% of what is on the scale & that works perfect for my 7 yr old fridge. also, very important, is make sure the freezer portion is going through it's full defrost cycles, or it will freeze the upper portion inside the fridge. you should not have any frost build up in your fridge, nor should you have any in your freezer. that's why they call them FROST FREE. try the slow temp decrease over a period of a few days & hopefully that will work for you. good luck.

yes it sounds like your only problem is that the evaporator fan is not operating so open the freezer door and see if you hear it. if you do not hear a fan running in the freezer make sure that the other fan in the back and the compressor is running. just replace the evaporator fan in the freezer and that should do it

Top portion offreezer is warm bottom is cold


Sounds like the defrost heater is bad . Part number WR51X10055 . You will need to remove the 2 or 4 screws , holding the lower portion of the inside rear freezer panel . The heater , is attached to the bottom of the coils , held on by 2 screws . You should also replace the defrost thermostat , Part number WR50X10068 . This is the 1 " cylinder , clipped to the top of the coils , with a blue and pink wire attached to it . This bimetal (defrost thermostat) , cuts the heater off , when/if the temp behind the panel gets to 140 degrees , therefore , keeping the food from defrosting .

Fridge wont get cold and freezer gets cold then gets warm


Sounds like to me you have a defrost issue. If your fridge is only 2 months old don't sweat it and call out a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. to fix the problem. And sorry to say age does not matter with fridges any more. The good ole days of fridges lasting 20 years is over now it's 12 years if your lucky.

Amana bottom freezer


Hello ghilitho, what you are having is an issue with the defrost cycle. There are 3 parts to this, heater, thermosat,and timer. Sometimes on the newer units the timer is the electronic control. What you are seeing is after you defrost the unit, it works for a time, this is because the evap fan pushes the air thru the unit. With the evap coil froze solid, the cooling drops. You will need a ohm meter to check the heater and thermosat, the heater & thermosat should show to be closed. Also make sure if this unit has a over heat thermosat that it is closed. It may have open up. If all this is good, then the timer is the issue. Hope this helps

GE Fridge/Freezer Having to turn temp up just to keep it cold


From your comment. It's not that you have to defrost the parts, that's what they're called. "defrost timer", "defrost t-stat" and "heat element". Defrosting the whole fridge for a few days actually will clear the ice blockage if that's it but it will return in a couple weeks if the "defrost cycle" isn't doing its thing. A fridge typically goes into some form of "defrost cycle" to keep it "frost free". As an example, every 12 hours the compressor turns off and the evap. fan turns off then a heat element turns on to melt the light coating of ice on the "cooling coils". Once about 1/2 hour goes by the heating turns off and the cooling turns back on again. This repeats over and over to keep the ice from building up too much. If that cycle is broken, the ice will build and build till the whole coil is a block of ice. Then the air can't flow around it to provide cold air for the whole unit. It acts basically like putting a large block of ice in the freezer and keeping the doors closed... without a fan to move the cold air only the very lower portion of the freezer is cold, the rest is warm.
