Did the technicians check the defrost system. Symptoms are those of a defective defrost control.
To test the defrost control you cn do a symple test at home:
Defrost the unit completely by leaving power off overnight.
If the problem was defrost system, then the unit will work fine for a while, cooling properly for days or week before failing again.
If the problem is not the defrost system, then check the damper motor (assuming that fridge is ventilated). If defrost does not fix the problem and fridge is not ventilated, give me model number.
Try defrost first.
If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.
There is a restriction in the refrigerant tubing on the liquid(high side) line and or at the filter drier.
The refrigerant is not circulating in the system correctly.
Another cause for this is a bad compressor,but you said the compressor was replaced.
The refrigerant should not be regulated .
It should be weighed in according to the unit specifications.

The freezer side of my built-in side by side Jenn-Air refrigerator (JS48FSFXDA) is having the following problem: during the defrost cycle, water is dripping from the ceiling of the freezer onto door shelves/baskets and elevator shelves and forming a coat of ice. From what I can see, it looks like the glass defrost heaters are working fine and melting the frost off the evaporator but the water overflows out of the drip pan and rains down on the shelves. I removed the evaporator drip pan hoping to

Hello, my side by side built-in refrigerator does not work.
the temperature raised to 50-55 degree, we make sure the temperature was reset and it still does not cool.

I have a frigidaire model FRS23H5ASB9 side by side. The condenser is freezing up with a block of frost and ice. The freezer gets cold but not very cold. The refrigerator does not get very cold either (60 degrees). We have replaced the control-defrost, adaptive timer, PC board and still had the same problem. I think it might be either the defrost heater kit or the thermostat for the defrost heater kit. My question is: 1. How can I troubleshoot before I buy these parts. 2. The copper t

The freezer temp seems to be okay, but the fridge side shows a temp of around 50 degrees, even after i have manually lowered it.

Our GE side-by-side refrigerator (model GS225) is not cooling. Freezer is at 55 degrees and the refrigerator is at 70 degrees. The fan condensor in the back was dirty so we cleaned it. Could that be the problem? We tried moving the temperature control cooler, but it is still not cooling. The fan is running. the refrigerator is about nine years old. Please give us your diagnostic ideas.
Check the compressor relay. All fans should be running when the compressor is except during post dwell. In post dwell the compressor and fan con on but the inside ones do not come on for a specified time. ...
My Kenmore model # 106.55536400 side by side refrigerator is too cold on the refrigerator side.

Refrigerator freezes Side by side unit. Refrigerator side freezes. Freezer side seems ok. Damper closes when set to "0" but still about 20 degrees in frig side.
Sounds like might be the Temperature Control Thermostat or some sensor in the circuitry telling the compressor and cooling parts to keep running because it thinks it isn't cold enough. There is probably a circulation fan to blow the cold air through ...

The temperature setting in the fridge section of your refrigerator is generated by diverting a part of the cold air generated in the freezer. This is done with the help of a fan and is controlled with a thermistor. If the temperature doesn't drop l ...

GE-GSL25XGWSS SXS-side by side refrigerator (purchased 1/09) Door initially left ajar, closed but unable to stay cool. Door closed but still not cold. Repairman called, Ice removed from evaporator, heater ok, return airflow ok. lasted 3 days warm again. Board replaced. lasted 3 days warm again. Thermometer change, same thing. Heater changed and here I am again day 4, one month later and loosing sleep.
What else could be wrong and when do you give up?
If the ice keeps building up on the evaporator and is blocking the air flow then the problem must be in the heater or associated parts - it simply doesn't work at all (it takes roughly 2 days for the ice to build up large enough to block the air flow ...

My Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model #PLHS267ZDB2 is cooling on the lower section of the refrigerator and freezer. Any idea what is going on? the unit came with the house and I think it was built in Aug 2004. this happened two days ago and we removed all the food from the frig and unplugged it from the wall. I plugged it back in and the problem is still there.
I have a 10 year old Sub-Zero 690F built-in refrigerator/freezer and problems with ice not dispensing properly, due to cube remelting together, bin/auger icing up, etc, apparently due to warmer/moist air running up tunnel when refrigerator side is open. I've been advised there is a redundant "heater" built-in to the unit which simply needs to be connected in-place of the failed heater. Contacting Sub-Zero they've advised must be done by a tech - however, it was a tech five years ago who told me
My subzero 590 refrigerator is not working, but the freezer side is still freezing. Temperature in refrigerator stays at 55 degrees F. Have cleaned the coils, but that did not improve things. Fan on coils is still running. Left compressor feels very warm; right compressor not near as warm as the left one. What might be wrong?
Sub-Zero 690 Side by Side Refrigerator
We have a Sub-Zero 532. A couple of days ago, we discovered that the refrigerator side was only reading 60 degrees. I deiced the condenser coil behind the back panel, checked the compressor and fan for the ref side and they are both running. I also tested the 'cold control' and it would turn on and off. However, the temperature will still only get down to around 50 degrees. Could it need a recharge? What kind of freon does this model need?
The Sub-Zero 532 model uses two different refrigerants (R12 or R-134a), in four different quantities, depending on the serial number of your unit. ...
