Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Freezer fine, fridge not cooling

This sounds like a small Freon leak. It could come from cleaning the coils, or movement by the compressor. A technician with a gas tester (locator) can find any small leaks and repair that section. The cost is not excessive and a new unit is over $1000, so consider the options.

20.0 cu.ft upright frigidaire. I unpluged it because we were moving and it set for a while before we pluged it back up about six to ten months now it nolonger gets cold. what problem do i have?

Hi Kenneth.

I understood that the fridge is starting but does not cool.

Check fridge temperature settings.

Check if the motor is starting. If the compressor is not running of if it clicks and does not start is the relay/capacitor connected to the motor.

Check if coils have been damaged or if the motor runs most of the time. If there have been a leak or if the refrigerant pressure is low the fridge will not cool.

If thermostat or electronic control is defective the fridge will not cool.

I can be a bit more specific if you give me the complete model number.

My product is Whirlpool Top Mountain Refrigerator. I bought it in August 2006. The freezer is working very well, however the fridge is not cool. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my refrigerator?...

LOOK into the vents of the back of the FREEZER section...

If you can make out the vanes of the evaporator

you are experiencing a DEFROST CIRCUIT FAILURE.

Decide what your issue is...

Both are easy to fix...

but you will have to do a FULL DEFROST to get another week of service... if your DEFROSTis failing.

Fod spoilage... and water damage are a concern.

Do it YOURSELF... (I love refrigerators).

Read my past articles or comment me back...

FIXYA may have my login fixed soon...

My frigidaire side by side quit cooling about two months ago i un pluged it cleand everything and let it sit for about 3 days pluged it back in and it worked for almost 2 months now it is not cooling again...

there sunds to me like there is a problem with you defrost ever how need to look for any ice build up in the bottom side of the freezer section.
while the unit is the cooling mode open the freezer door and listen for a fan running if you do not hear a fan running you may need to replace it the door switch should be held in while you are checking this.

then i would alos look at the overload relay and start switch on the compressor.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works

Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works

Do you know if the compressor in the back is running? If you can check that out get back to me and we can go from there. Most times if the fan in the freezer is running the defrost timer is ok.
