I have a Jenn-Air side by side frig. The freezer side cools too cold, the frig side not enough. 2 weeks ago I took all the food out of freezer and noticed ice build up on back. I unplugged unit, let it defrost overnight, and vacuumed coils in back. The next morning I plugged it back in and went to work. When I ret'd, the frig temp was 38' and freezer was making ice. I waited 2 days, then put food in again. Today, I noticed temp in frig is 48'. I don't see any ice build up. Suggestions? Mod

My GE side by side fridge model GSH22JFTA BB stopped making ice a few months ago. Water is fine. Haven't had a chance to get it fixed, but now both freezer and fridge side do not get cold even on highest setting. This started about a week ago. Doesn't seem like the fan is blowing any air around either. There is some frost on the back of the freezer wall, but it is not cold enough to freeze any food. Bottom drawer of fridge is the only really cold area. It's only 2 years old - is this an ex

Both sides are not getting cold. Freezer is not cold enough. Ice cream is soft and frozen juice is not frozen any more. There is a small amount of frost on the back wall. I have adjusted the temp. control to coldest for both sides and that did not make a difference.

Hi I have a GE Profile Side by Side - model PSS23LSSASS.
I came home after being away for 10 days and everything in the freezer had melted. The fridge and freezer we're not cooling. Along the back wall of the freezer there was ice and frost. I threw everything away and pulled the plug. Over the next 12 hours all the ice melted and drained. I surrounded the fridge with towels and cleaned up all the water. I plugged it back in and it seems to be cooling fine now. The freezer is around 0

My ice machine is not making ice. The machine itself is getting power, the blades rotate around but there is no ice. I unplugged the ice machine then plugged it back in and water came into the tray but only filled up enough for one ice cube. I disconnected the water hose from the wall behind the refrigerator and there is water coming from the wall connection. It seems not enough water is getting to the freezer through the hose. What do I do? Thank you

Our Kenmore is a side by side with ice maker. It's about 6 years old. The ice maker quit making ice about a year ago. We didn't get it fixed. Now our refridgerator section won't cool. The freezer works perfect. We have unplugged the refridgerater for 36 hrs. then plugged back in...still no cooling. Temp is around 60 degrees. We baught a sensor for it around 5 bucks trying to start slow/cheap before getting into somthing bigger. What do we need to do.

TFS22PP - GE side by side - running warm. Freezer not freezing and fridge side not cool. I'm not in the freezer too much but noticed the fridge getting a little warmer.

I have a GE side-by-side TFX24JW fridge. The bottom half of both (fridge and freezer) maintain proper temperatures. The top half of both are warmer than the bottom halves, though still cool (ie, the freezer does not freeze but food is still cool, the fridge is cooler than room temp but not cool enough to keep food from spoiling).
No ice build-up anywhere, though the fan runs constantly. I've vacuumed underneath the front and in the back (the coils are covered by the back of the fridge but th

LG side by side LFC20760 bottom freezer ice tray problem. The ice cubes build up at the rear of the tray, and when you open the freezer drawer, a few cubes fall out of the rear of the tray. It is so annoying. The fridge is level side to side and front to back, and it is not overfilling the ice tray. It just seems like a poor design where the rear tray wall is not high enough to keep the ice inside. Is there any retrofit to this model, or any ideas on how I can avoid this problem with having to l

The freezer side is getting cool but not freezing. I replaced the fan in the back of the freezer under the coils. I cleaned and checked all the coils to make sure they weren't the problem.

I have a Maytag MSD2756DEB side by side. The freezer works fine except it doesn't make ice like it should. The fridge is not cooling properly. Once a week or so I turn the freezer down and it makes ice for about a day (maybe me turning the freezer down defrosts it). And on several occasions I have had to take the back panel off of the freezer and manually defrost the coils. We replaced the DCB yesterday evening (approx. 14 hours ago) and the fridge is still no cooler than it has been. Has it not

My GE GSH25JFTA BB unit is working for a very long periods uninterrupted. And its building a very thick "wall of ice" on the back panel of the freezer, from bottom up to the lamp.
