If the fan isn't running neither section will be cold enough. There may be something jammed against the fan blade or the motor could be defective.

SOURCE: SMEG Fridge Freezer FA561XF - the frame of the fridge/freezer gets very hot and freezer isn't freezing stuff in bottom tray

That is a very bad sign, but before you unplug it pull the machine out from the wall and check to see if it feels hot back there as well. Then remove the lower cover and find the condersor fan motor. Its the only fan back there. I'd willing to bet that the fan is not running. The purpose of the the fan is draw air across the compressor and blow it through the condensor therefore lowering the temperature on both parts. When its not working/ running, the heat from the compressor and the condensor is pass onward to the machine and the machine then acts as a heat sink.
Also, if the machine is too close to the wall or the condensor coils are dirty you'll get the same effect, so be sure to check those things out as well

Compressor conning on for only approx 10 seconds and off for approx 30-60 seconds continuously. Freezer not cold enough to keep things frozen


Check condenser is cleaned. Replace relay and check compressor is working. If working keep your arm on condenser coil to feel warm. If not, no gas int he system. Call repairman to rectify. And also keep fridge temp setting between 36*F and 46*F and freezer temp between -14*F and 8*F. Thanks.

I have a Kenmore bottom freezer fridge. Can't find the manual. Is 7 the coldest setting or 1? We keep the fridge in our garage and with the artic temps we are having we need to adjust it.


most refr's dont so well when the ambiant temps fall below 50 degrees. you should not need to adjust the controls must past the "midpoint" usually 4. but 7 is the coldest setting.
the best thing you can do is check what the actual temps are in your garage and if you can warm it up to above 50, then the unit should run properly again.
if the ambiant temps are too cold, the freezer wont be cold enough and the refr section will freeze things.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Yes it is very possible that exactly what you are describing can be happening. Also try a thermometer frozen in a cup of water to get more accurate temps. Also 33 in the fridge is very normal for the cold control set on max and the heater installed. Let me know the temps in the frz with the thermometer sensing product temp not air temp which fluctuates often.
