Hi I have a 2006 Whirlpool GC3SHEXNB03 side by side frig, the "gold" model. The freezer was not cooling well last night. I pulled the panel in the bottom front to access the coils. They had a lot of hair build up from our beloved Golden Retriever + dust + my own hair, like an inch thick. I vacuumed the front of the coils last night. Still did not cool well 12 hours later. It had made ice, but the ice was shining with a little water on it. I cannot set the temperature controls to zero (freezer) a

We have an 18-year old maytag side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer works but the refrigerator is no longer cooling. This occured yesterday. Over about the last three weeks there was some build up of ice behind the panel at the inside top of the refrig where there seems to be some sort of flapper valve that you adjust for how cool you want the freezer to be. At that point there looks to be some sort of plastic conduit that goes down to about the middle inside part of the refrig where there is a

My side by side Samsung rs2556bb was not freezing on the top section of the freezer(bottom part was freezing). I removed the interior panel of freezer and saw a thick layer of ice covering the bottom section. I melted the ice with a hair dryer and reinstalled the panel and solved the problem. 1 week later the refrigerator side(right) was not cooling properly.

I have a Samsung RS2555SW Side by Side Fridge. Recently the cooling side quit cooling and i had the defrost heating unit replaced which had iced up and quit working.

My ge side-by-side refrigerator/freezer isn't cooling. It started on the refrigerator side and now both sides are losing cooling capability. There is ice build up on the lower back wall of the freezer. Sounds like something with the defrost from what I've read.
