Kenmore refrigerator Freezer is cold but fresh food side is warm

I have a Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator and the Freezer is cold but the the fresh food side of the fridge is warm. I cleaned all of the coils and unplugged it for about 4 hours. I tried resetting the temperature and I plugged it back in. But again the freezer is cold and the fresh food side is warm. Any ideas on how I should fix this?

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.

CSX22GRZAWW freezer works, refrigerator warm

Damper problem.
This ice box has a damper which is controlled by a thermostat. When the fresh side be warm that damper opens and allows cold air to enter the fresh food section. It must be gone out. it is what i would check.

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.

I have a refrigerator that is 10 years old it is a tpx24pbe bb model number and the refrigerator side is staying at 50 degrees what is the problem?

On my GE side by side (model GSS20IEMDWW), a warm fresh food side, as well as iced-over evaporator coils in the freezer, was caused by the temp sensor in the fresh food side sending faulty data to the computer.

The temp in the fresh food side would climb because air could no longer pass over the iced-up coils in the freezer side.

For me, the faulty fresh food side sensor made the computer always thing the fresh food side was too warm, making it constantly run the compressor (thus icing up the coils).

If you do not have a coil icing problem in the freezer, then your fresh food side temp sensor may be telling the computer that the fresh food side is already cold enough.

Freezer side cold, food side warm not working

3 possible problems.... Machine is possibly not defrosting (if this is it, eventually the freezer will not work as well) The damper between the two sides is possibly not operating, or the fan on the freezer side is possibly not blowing the cold air into the fresh food side.

WARM REFRIGERATOR

Check the freezer side back wall, do you see Ice forming on that wall?

If so you have a defrost issue. Also check to make sure you fan in the freezer side is running. If not, than cold air from the freezer cannot make it to the fresh food side.

I am factory authorized for Frigidaire Appliances and am confident I can assist you in this repair.
