KitchenAid model no. KSRS22FGBL03 Fridge is not cooling; freezer side is ok. No cold air being blown into fridge from top or vent in about the middle of the demising wall between freezer and fridge; even when cold air IS being blown into freezer.

Coils are dust free for the most part. Any ideas?

Refridgerator (upper) does not cool. The freezer (lower) works well. I noticed the evaporator coils (can see partially through bottom freezer) were frozen. Drain pan is dry.

Our Magic Chef fridge model # MCBR1000W does not seem to be keeping the fridge part cool enough, but still keeps the items in the freezer section frozen. The compressor is working, so not sure why this is happening. If the freezer compartment was overly filled, could this be an issue? Does the refridgerator portion get it's cooling from the vents in the front of the freezer section? And if it does, if the freezer door was not closed tightly would this affect the temperature in the fridge com


Yes the freezer door not closing properly will effect the refrigerator. also check in the freezer back wall and bottom for any frost buildup. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.\015\012\015\012\015\012 \015\01 ... Magic Chef Refrigerators

The front side of the vertical divider (inside the door) in the side-by-side is VERY hot, nearly hot enough that you can't keep a finger on it. Inside of fridge and freezer are still cold and frozen. I suspect it's the cooling fan in the bottom/back, which has been squeaking some due to a bad bearing; that problem had been fixed, to this point, with some WD-40. I haven't pulled the unit out yet to look, but was curious if anybody had seen this before.

I have a Whirlpool Refigerator (double door, freezer over cooler). Its model number is WBM35 IX (made in 2003). Lately I have problems in the fridge. The freezer freezes the items. But there is no cooling in the fridge. Moreover I dont see any cool air being blown either in the freezer or in the cooling compartment. Could it be because of a fan failure?


My guess is the fan has gone on it. Mine did the same thing. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer compartment via a fan that is usually in the back of the freezer. It's not a hard replacement, if you're tech-savvy (took me about 1/2 hr.) and ... Whirlpool Refrigerators
