Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

All of a sudden, my refrigerator doesn't keep anything cold like it used to but the freezer still works. We have cleaned underneath but it still doesn't keep anything cold. What could be the problem?


Answers :

Look for signs of frost on the back side. You probably have a defrost problem of it could be a drain problem.
Your ice box cold air originates in the freezer. A fan pushes down the cold air into the fresh food section. If their are too many items in the freezer the air can be blocked to the fresh food section. If the drain stops up sometimes a puddle forms a slab of ice between the freezer and the bottom. I ave an apartment maintenence man's guide to these ice box's for you HERE. It feature 4 differnt styles of whirlpool ice box's in your size.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig. and the freezer side keeps getting full of frost, and the refrig. side is barely cold, and keeps spoiling food. I've had a tech come out and check things out and remove the frost, he said it was because warm air was entering the freezer side, and not to block the vents. I'm still having this problem even after the frost has been cleaned, and the food arranged so nothing is blocking the vents, nor preventing the door from closing properly. what else might i

We were defrosting the Sanyo SR3660S at our office and when there was no more ice present plugged it back in. We then noticed a wire? covered in white coating that was bent funny and looked like it was not attached to anything. We turned the fridge back on and when we got back to work the next day the fridge was still not cold. We thought maybe it was not turned on but the button was turned to high and you could hear the fridge running. What could be the problem?

Water dispenser not working. The ice dispenser will work but the water will not. I held it down for 2 minutes to be sure there was no water in the line but its still not working. We also changed the filter but still no luck. The "trap door" that lets the ice out of the freezer into your cup when using the dispenser seems to keep getting stuck partially open and causing things to "frost up" could this have anything to do with our problem? Any suggestions?

Refrigerator is not cooling enough even it is already set to the coldest. in a rare situation, the compressor and the fan motor will turn on for a few minutes and that's it... it won't cool the refrigerator enough. freezer still freezes the load. also, can't see any ice developing in the sides of the freezer and water keeps on dripping down below the fridge... what could be the problem? thermocouple? temp controller? or anything else?

A couple of weeks ago we noticed that the refrigerator side of our Kenmore Model #596.51673100 was not very cold, we turned up the temp and no increase, still kind of warm. Then today we noticed our freezer side is not very cold (enough for a freezer). We've cleaned behind and under the fridge, cleaned out the inside to see if anything was blocking the cold air, changed the temp settings, etc. Nothing changes it. It sounds like it's working but it never gets as cold as it should. What's goi

I have a maytag side by side refrigerator which seems to have the common problem of a warm fridge area while the freezer stays cold (but not cold enough for ice cream). It has been unplugged for several months now. I see that several people with the same problem solved it by purchasing an adaptive defrost control board. If I buy this, could I still probably run into problems since it has set idle for so long? One repairman told me that this would be the case. Thank you, P. B. Shelbourne
