There are a few possibilities. First, Is the freezer portion working okay? If yes, then the problem is blocked air flow from the freezer to the frig. If no, then the cooling fan could be bad or the thermostat could be bad. First check for temperature in Freezer section, should be about 4-8 degrees no more. If it is cold, then locate the cooling fan behind the back of the frig and see if it is moving or listen for movement. If it is moving then rearrange the food in your freezer compartment.and frig compartment away from the vents. If it is not moving, then the thermocouple could be bad. compressor problems and freon leaks are not that common unless the frig has been moved alot. The cooling fan or thermocouple or overstuffed freezer compartment are the usual suspects in 90 % of cooling problems. cooling fans and thermocouples can be cleaned by using canned compressed air to remove dust which will sometimes cause a failure. The parts are inexpensive but labor is about $80. Start with the freezer because all of the cooling for the whole unit starts in the freezer.

I have a Frigidaire PLHS69EGSS stainless stell side by side refrigerator that I just bought used. The man I bought it from said that the freezer would only cool to 18 degrees (not cold enough he said) but the refrigerator would cool to 34 degrees (cold enough). Well we bought it and found that neither one gets very cold despite setting them on low temps (set fridge 34 and freezer 0). The sometimes read low temps that are close to what we set (although it never feels really super cold) but most o

That is the classic symptoms of a defrost system failure. Suggest you look behind the rear panel on the inside of your freezer and see if it is iced up. If it is then it is a defrost problem which could be the defrost heater, defrost thermostat or ...
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. ...
I have a GE refrigerator model number PSC25SG SA SS which has Problem that in every couple days the freezer and the refrigerator display panels display out of their setting ranges. For example, the freezer panel displays 9 degree (0 degree is normal and the setting is 0 degree) and refrigerator panel displays 44 degree (37 degree is normal and the setting is 37). I have to use turbo cool function to bring them back to their normal temp. 1) What is the problem? 2) How do I fix it?

GE refrigerator model #GSS22SGRESS (5 yrs old) Refrigerator compartment worms up to around 55 degree. If you shut the refrigerator off and open the doors for 24 hrs then turn it back on, the refrigerator will cool to 40 degrees. Stays at 40 degrees for about 2 weeks then start worming up again. I have cleaned the compressor area. Thanks

Check if the fan is working and you are circulating air efficiently. You may check on the coils at the freezer if there are ice formation. I would suggest to have the ice melted by unplugging it and ensuring that all parts are ice free. Clean the ...

Freezer temperature control to maximum-cold, but freezer is running around 15 degrees (used to run at zero degrees with much more reasonable control setting). Also, refrigerator side is barely cool. It seems that there is no coolness coming from vents at top-rear area of the refrigerator.

Not cooling! I noticed a whistling sound in my refrigerator that appeared to be coming from the freezer section. I emptied the ice maker bin which was was overflowing, do to my being away 3 weeks. The whistling sound stopped and the ice maker worked fine. One day later, we noticed the refrigerator is not cooling. We put thermometer in and it is holding steady at 50 degrees, even when turned up to 9. The freezer is starting to warm up also (25 degrees). The motor is running with no unusual sounds
Check the rear of the freezer you may find a build up of ice there if so you have a defrost problem chances are the heater is bad you can unplug ref and let thaw or you can tear into the rear (pretty easy) and defrost with hair dryer and look at theh ...

My GE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Model:PFS22SBSSS The Refrigerator is not cooling, however the Freezer is mantianing proper temprature at 0 degrees. The temp on the fridge is reading 60 degrees on the inside digital display. I also noticed ever since the fridge portion stopped cooling there's no heat disapating from the top or sides of the fridge like it used to do. Has anyone see this problem?
Your problem is almost surely caused by the failure of the fan that should circulate cooled air from the freezer section to the refrigerator.\012If you check for vents, normally in the rear of the fridge, and hold your fingers in front of them while ...

My GE Adora seams to be breaking down. Freezer is not freezing and temperature in both, Freezer and Refrigerator is dropping. HAVE reset the temperatures to GE's recommendation of 0 Degrees and 38 Degrees, but currently at the actual temperatures are currently 14 degrees in the Freezer and 47 degrees in the Refrigerator. (a few hours ago it was 9 degrees and 44 degrees, so its dropping, not cooling).

On September 26, 2009 we purchased a Frigidaire refrigerator, model FPHC2399KF. The temperature variation inside the refrigerator is 8 to 13 degrees. The middle shelf can read 32 degrees (with frozen food) and the top shelf 40 degrees when the controls are set to their lowest. When set at 38 degrees the middle shelf is 35 degrees and the upper shelf is an unsafe 47 degrees. We have had 4 service calls but no resolution.

The refrigerator part is not staying cool enough and trying to change the setting is not doing anything. The freezer temp is now showing plus 7 degrees and the refrigerator is showing 52degrees. When I go to turbo cool the display does not go to TC as it should but looks like it is showing some code( E2) possibly cannot really tell as some of the lines are missing. Che

I have a Vintage Keeper Odyssey wine cellar 250 bought new on 10/2002. Though the cooling fins have been kept clean, the cooling unit can only reach the 57 degree set point on cool nights and during the day can only reach 66 degrees.
Given the age of the cooling unit, could it be low on refrigerant and if so is it advisable to have it recharged or is it better to replace it ?
Have it checked on how much refrigerant yo have left before deciding on the purchase of a new unit or recharging it. The cost may be far and from there you can decide on which is more practical. It may also just be a faulty thermostat. ...
