The freezer is working fine but the fridge side is about 60 degrees no matter what the temp setting. I have removed the plastic cover on the back of the fridge (where the "tunnel" between the fridge and freezer is and there is no air flow between the two units (with the freezer door closed). The fan in the back of the freezer is running just fine but I am not getting a "wind" from the freezer side into the fridge.

Fridge worked perfect for 3yrs, one day i took everything out of the fridge side (left freezer door closed) to clean it, left the fridge door open for about 30 minutes as i cleaned the shelves, cripser etc. Next day the fridge side stopped cooling but the freezer side was normal temp and making ice. Unplugged the unit for one day, plugged it back in and it worked perfect for 2 weeks, after that both sides (fridge and freezer) stopped working.

Hi there, I have a side by side samsung fringe (one side freezer & other cooler). The cooler side has a fan to distribute the air inside and due to the ice building up near the internal fan it is touching making grinding noise.

The freezer door wasn't closed properly overnight 2 nights ago and it still didn't cool properly after the whole day yesterday and today. There was a noise which I didn't recognize but now in retrospect may have been a fan working overtime. The fridge side was working though. There was frost on the back wall of the freezer which I thawed out today. Now both sides aren't working and the frost is back. Can anyone help? Thanks

Kitchenaide side by side, model # ksra25fk---freezer too cold (-10 to -15) & fridge side sometimes gets above 48 setting of the "overtemp" alarm.

However, the evaporator fan runs during test 03 for the evaporator fan motor. I dismantled the back panel of the freezer--there is no frost buildup and the defrost coil heats properly. Both
