For one reason or another the cold air is not getting from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator side.
Possibilities Are There is ice build up in the vent. The vent is stuck closed or set at closed setting(freezer setting to cold) Defrost thermostat in freezer area not defrosting ice to allow air flow. This you can tell once you remove the back panel in the freezer you will see the inside full of ice.

The freezer works fine, but the top compartment of the kenmore elite sidebysidefridge will not get cold. why? how do i fix this?



The refrigerator was not cool, but the freezer was working. I looked on the internet and it sounded like the evap fan wasn't working - not moving air from the freezer to the frig. I got the part # from our manual and we went out and bought it for $43. It is behind the back wall of the bottom freezer. image.tiff

image.tiff Here is what it looks like behind the wall. The motor that was bad is the white rectangle that is being held up by the black clip.

This is the new motor which looks different but was supposed to be the replacement.image.tiff
Here is the new one installed.image.tiff It works!!!!!! It wasn't that hard to do and saved us a lot of money.

Whirlpool Frig


Is that everything in your freezer or just in the fridge. Is this a frostfree model. Often if defrost fails in a frost free model then it is unable to duct cold air to the refrigerator side of things. To fix- turn it off for a day or two.
