If the freezer is working that is a good sign. Here are what might be the problems; 1) Ice build up in the freezer will block air flow to the refrigerator and thus causing it to get warm and stay warm. If you observed a build up of ice in the freezer, it means that your defrost heater and/or your defrost thermostat is bad. In any case, replace both.
2) The evaporator fan plays an important role in circulating cold air in both freezer and refrigerator compartment. Listen for the evaporator fan and make sure that is running. If you can hear it, it has gone bad and will have to be replaced.
3) if any of the above applies, the lower or upper air dampers may be obstructed. Check and make sure that they are open.
4) Too much food or stuff in the freezer may also be the culprit. If there is too much stuff in the freezer, you might want to remove some them to make way for air to flow in the refrigerator compartment.
I hope this will help solve the problem. Do not forget "Feedback"

Have extra older Frig in th garage Mod 596.72232200


Sounds like a intermittent problem with the defrost timer. Sometimes they get stuck. Check continuity of the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If both are good then replace the defrost timer, that should solve the problem.

Refrig compartment does not cool on my new Kemore Frig.


Check and make sure the fan in the freezer is running. if not possible bad fan. If fan is running, check to see if you have any ice built up on back freezer wall. Normally frost type ice. If so, you may possibly have a bad defrost bi-metal mounted in the freezer section. Next could be a defrost timer control. Model number usally will help more in getting it right.

My kitchen aid frig is not working. the freezer side does work is it worth fixing model kitchenaid ksrp25fnss00. i bought ot 4 years ago


I would suggest you may have an airflow problem. As the frig compartment receives the cold air from the freezer compartment and you say the freezer is working,then you must have an airflow problem .Check the airflow dail next to the thermostat that has numbers. Normal setting is the middle setting on both airflow dail and therm.Allow temp to stabilize and recheck.hope this helps.

Amana DRB2201CW refrigerator does not get cold


You may have an obstruction in the air vent from the freezer compartment to the frig .there should be an airflow adjustment next to the thermostat. Middle setting is recommended. Since you say the freezer is working properly, I cannot see any other possibility. hope this helps.

Freezer works, frig does not. Also ice build up in freezer coil


I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.

Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.
