SOURCE: top refridgerator does not get cold but the bottom freezer works fine

Most of these have a fan that blows the cold air for the freezer into the refrigiator section. If the fan quits running you will experience your problem.

You have a defrost problem. You need either the defrost timer, defrost heater, or the defrost bi-metal. If you have a meter you can ohm out the heater and the bi-metal ( as lonh a s the bi -metal is frozen as it opens when it gets warm to cut out the defrost heater) if you have an ohm reading on either one of the two the replace the defrost timer, if you don't then replace the part that has no ohm reading.

SOURCE: refridgerator not cold

Hi and welcome to Fixya. When a food section of a refridgerator warms up it is a sign that the unit is not defrosting or there is an air flow problem.

This can be caused by the following components:

1. The defrost timer
2. Defrost bi-metal 60 Deg thermostat
3. Heating element
4. Evaporator fan failure in the freezer compartment

Sometimes the defrost timer will just stop advancing for some reason and ice builds up in the evaporator coils that restircts airflow from the evaporator fan so the food section warms up.

The most likely failure is the defrost timer.

You can see if your uint will cool properly after a good defrosting by doing this:

1. Unplug the unit and unload the freezer section
2. Place a fan blowing into the freezer for about 2 hours. (it will make a water mess so be prepaired)
3. Plug in / restart the unit and monitor the temperature for the next 48 hours (it should be normal or near normal) After 48 hours the food section temp will start to raise again due to ice build up.
4. If the temps return to normal then the unit is not defrosting properly and will need repaired.

You can find replacement parts here:

http://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=KSRB22FHBL01&mfgModelNum=&fkMfgID=3

From the model number you gave the defrost timer is Item 6 of the control diagram

http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=372261&SourceCode=1#

It can also be found here:
http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-KSRB22FHBL01-%3d%3d&z=50

http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-KSRB22FHBL01-%3d%3di844415&PartID=844415

I did not of course diagnose the unit in your home. The part above is the most common failure. Given the cost of the defrost timer I would make SURE that it was defective before ordering.

In order to perform a continuity check of the rest of the defrost system components the bi-metal 60 Deg F thermostat must be above 60 Deg (or jumpered) to read the whole circuit. Jumpering the 60 Deg thermostat will not verify it is working correctly.

Hopefully this gives you a bit more understanding of why your unit is warming up in the food section.

GE Profile Refridgerator side warm, freezer ok?


Fridge gets cold air from freezer to cool it. Your freezer is fine but not enough cold air is getting into fridge compartment. U have some dampers or louvers that direct air flow to fridge and if they are not set properly cooling will not be adequate. Check those out.

Freezer seems to be working fine, but the refridgerator is cool at best with the thermostat all the way down. I tried to defrost, but with no help. I think the fan in the freezer might be bad.


The only place that cools in a refrigerator is the freezer. The refridgerator side stills cold from the freezer via an air duct that runs from the freezer to the refridgerator. If your fan in the freezer compartment is not working your refridgerator side will not work. To replace the fan you will need to clean out the freezer including the shelving. Then remove the back panel all you need is a phillips screw driver. When the back is replaced the fan is at the top. It is held in by two screws that go threw rubber mounts on the fan braces. You will need to remove one ground wire and two electric wires on the motor its self. Make sure to unplug the refrigerator before starting the repair. good luck

Kenmore Trio: the refridgerator is not getting cool


In the Freezer or Fridge compartment, there is the Evaporator Fan (& Motor) If the freezer is cold, the Evaporator fan motor most likely went bad. Check to see that when the compressor is running, so should be the fan motor. If not, you have to remove it & replace it. It is not an expensive repair unless you call for service on it. Make sure that you unplug the fridge when you replace the fan motor.
