Troubleshooting: Fridge Not Getting Cold But Freezer Working Fine

Adjust fridge thermostat settings to keep food cool. Don’t set it too low or too high. Follow manufacturer’s instructions.

Your fridge will have several parts that are responsible for cooling, including the compressor and fans. Inspect these components to ensure they are running correctly and the coils or vents aren’t blocked. It’s a good idea to clean your fridge coils at least once each year to help improve its efficiency. If any problems are found with the fans or compressor, you may need to hire a professional technician for repairs.

Poor insulation can cause your fridge’s temperature to drop, so it’s important to make sure the door seals are airtight and that both doors close properly. If a tight seal isn’t maintained, warm air will seep in and keep the fridge from cooling. Check all corners of both doors, including around the handle and hinges, for cracks or tears. In some cases, new seals may need to be installed by a professional technician.

Anything that blocks the flow of air inside your fridge can prevent it from reaching its optimal temperature. If your vents are blocked, this can cause a build up of condensation and eventually ice, resulting in poor efficiency. Carefully inspect the vents for any obstructions – or even pet fur or food – and make sure they’re completely clear. If the problem persists, check the fan motor to make sure it’s running smoothly without interference.

Check refrigerant levels in your appliance to troubleshoot. Low levels can prevent necessary cooling. Refer to user manual or consult technician for instructions. Refrigerants create cold temperatures.

Freezer Working Fridge Not Cooling

If your freezer is working but the fridge isn't cooling, you might be experiencing a common issue. Follow these steps to troubleshoot:

  1. Check if the fridge is properly plugged into the power outlet.
  2. Ensure the temperature settings on the fridge are set correctly. The ideal temperature for the fridge is between 37°F and 40°F.
  3. Clean the coils at the back of the fridge. Dust and debris buildup can hinder proper airflow, affecting cooling.
  4. Inspect the door seals for any signs of wear or damage. Replace any worn-out seals to ensure a tight closure.
  5. Remove any obstructions blocking the vents inside the fridge. Proper airflow is essential for even cooling.
  6. Allow space around the fridge for proper ventilation. Ensure there's at least a few inches of clearance on all sides of the appliance.
  7. If the issue persists after troubleshooting, consider contacting a professional appliance repair service for further assistance.
