Why is the water coming out of the dispensor not cold


Is your fridge compartment temperature in the region of 2 ~ 6 C range. Is your fridge food not going bad. Then dispensor water should be cool. Cool water tank is normally hidden inside fridge compartment. Lowest temp is around 2 ~ 6 C range.

If you keep on taking water rapidly then there is no time for the cooling tank to cool. You are just pushing house water through the water dispensor.

Hi....my refrigerator is not cooling my food but yet the freezer works fine ..what could that be?


The only thing you can do as a householder before the expense starts is switching off for 12 hours and giving the fridge a proper defrost. 90%of the time, that is the problem. If that fan doesnt run then it wont transfer the cold frost to the fridge compartment.

My Amana fridge #ARB2215CB seems to be cooling the


Your refrigerator probably has an issue with its "damper control assembly", which regulates cold air coming from the freezer compartment. Contact an appliance service company.

I cleaned out my fridge completely today. Took all the shelves out, cleaned the interior, all the glass over a three hour period. The freezer is working just fine, the fresh food area is nice and dry but...


Manufacturers suggest that it takes approximately 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize in both your freezer and fresh food compartments after being turned off for an extended period of time. Adjust temperature settings to the "half-way" mark for both freezer and fresh food compartments. Allow a period overnight and recheck the temperatures. Also check the condenser coil (usually located underneath the appliance). If clogged with dirt/lint, it needs to be cleaned (carefully) with a condenser coil brush (can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowe's). Prior to cleaning condenser coil, turn off appliance (there is a condenser fan motor and blade operating while on). Be careful not to damage copper tubing (refrigerant in tubing)!

Fridge doesnt stay cold


The fresh food compartment is cooled by air being blown from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. Something is restricting that air flow which causes your fresh food compartment to stay warm.

There is a panel, or door if you will, that separates the freezer and fresh food compartments. The freezer temp control determines how much cold air is allowed to escape into the fresh food compartment by opening or closing this panel.

If the panel is restricted from moving (stuck closed, for example), the freezer will get VERY cold while the fresh food compartment will be warm.

Try thoroughly defrosting the refrigerator. Possibly an accumulation of ice is preventing the panel from moving and/or is restricting air flow from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. It's a free fix and may solve your problem altogether.

If that doesn't help, or helps only temporarily, you may have a problem with panel itself or the linkage that connects it to the control mechanism. Unless you're skilled in appliance repair, checking and repairing these components will require the help of a service technician

Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.

F&P E402B Active Smart Fridge Compartment not cool


You need to start with a clean totally defrosted unit. That means clean, vacuum and wipe as much as you can around the entire motor compressor area especially any coils you can reach. Then set temp around whatever normal is and see what happens. If still the same it's time to have a tech do pressure tests.

Kenmore elite refrigerator. both compartments (bottom freezer and top refrigerator)are not keeping with the temperature setting. the food is cool but not cold as it should be. how can I test to see if...


Really most folks have to keep their setting on their fridge on about a 6-7 or-8 setting with the amount of food that is kept in the fridge now.
YOU CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE RELATIVE temp if you like by placing a fridge thermometer in the appliance. Optimal fresh food should be around 40-43 degrees F on average to keep things on the cooler side without freezing.
Hope this helps

I have a zanussu fridge


Re. Zanussi ZK87/46EFS Fridge Freezer

The same symptom occurred in our fridge freezer. The fridge compartment warmed up whilst the freezer compartment continued to keep temperature.

The cause of our problem was diagnosed as a frozen sensor that controls a flap, that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer compartment up into the fridge compartment. We were advised to power off the fridge freezer (removing all food and trays from the freezer unit first), and to leave it to defrost for 24hrs. We needed to place a few towels on the floor of the freezer compartment to soak up the melt water. After 24hrs we followed the power up instructions in the manual (versions are available online if you have lost yours). Within a few minutes it was obvious that the fridge compartment was being cooled – Problem solved :)
