    My side by side freezer works fine but the fridge is not getting cold at all

    We have to defrost the coils cause they freeze up about once a week. We replaces the thermastat and the censor and it still does it. I recommend not getting a maytag side by side

    first there was this loud high pitched noise from the freezer, so i googled and it said to turn the temp off for a couple of minutes then turn back up and the noise should stop and it did, but now the fridge is not cold at all and its almost on high, any suggestions?

    I have a problem with my 7 year Samsung SRS579NP lately. The fridge is not cold. Just notice that can't hear any noise from the motor at all.

    Turned off and turn on the switch then , motor runs again but after few hours stopped again.

    Please help.

I think that I have a solution. Refridgerator side not cooling.
I read in the blogs that holding down the top two bottons(power cool & fridge) at the same time resets the refridgerator control panel.

I may have caused the problem by leaving the door open. If my above solution does not work, then I will defrost the frefrigerator just in case the coils are froze up. It works with my air conditioner.

There could be a multple amount of reason why fridge is not cooling but here are a few easy tests. But first, if fridge door is keep open for long period of time or is constantly being opened and closed this releases alot of the cold air and also cause the compressor to work over time especially in the these hot summer times. as soon as you find item you want close the door save the compressor and electricity.T2. checking the gasket on your fridge door, a old, dirty, or damaged door gasket can cause cool air to escape and small critters to get in. to test to see if the gasket is faulty simpl get a dollar open the fridge door place the dollar on the top wall where the gasket meets the fridge close the door the door onto the dollar now get a few gentle tuggs if it comes out easy the gasket is not sealing properly and should be replaced. if it gives a liitle resistance then the top part is good now check on the bottom and rremaning sides if resistance is felt its good.

Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. The ice may have also stopped up this opening blocking the air flow.Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Coils keep freezing up its 4 years old


Iced-over evaporator coils, accompanied by a non-chilled fresh food compartment, happened in my GE side-by-side (model GSS20IEMDWW). For me, the problem was caused by a faulty temp sensor in the fresh food side. That sensor never signalled the computer that the temp in the fresh food side was cool enough, so the compressor ran constantly.

Since the compressor was running constantly, the evaporator coils (back wall of the freezer compartment) eventually iced over (took about a week). Since the fan that draws air over the evaporator coils could no longer move any air (due to the icing), the temperature in the fresh food side got warmer as well.

The fresh food side is chilled through a hole with a motorized door at the top of the dividing wall between compartments which opens when the fresh food side needs cooling. If no air is moving in the freezer compartment, temps in the fresh food compartment climb.

I replaced the temp sensor in the fresh food side and solved the problem for a while.

I bough a pair of thermometers at a kitchen store and put one in the freezer compartment and one in the fresh food compartment so that I could occasionally check to see if it made sense for the compressor to be running (ie, was it really necessary to be trying to cool either compartment, or were they already cold enough).

About six months later I had the coil icing problem again. This time the fresh food side seemed cool enough (according to the thermometer as well as the fact that the flapper door would close, indicating that the computer knew to not try to additionally cool the fresh food side).

The thermometer indicated that the temp in the freezer compartment was cold enough, but the system computer continued to run the compressor. So I replaced both temp sensors in the freezer compartment - which solved the problem again. (My fridge is about seven years old.)

If you are going to replace any of the temp sensors, replace them all under the principle of "if one failed, the rest will soon fail too".

Use a website like www.partselect.com to look up a parts diagram for your fridge and see if you can order just the temp sensors. Other websites (www.repairclinic.com and www.appliancepartsworldwide.com) may also be helpful. I have no affiliation with any of the sites I just mentioned - I'm just posting them as resources.

The fridge and freezer stopped cooling. we defrosted it. There was frost in the freezer. Before that the ice on the door had stopped and now it works too.
