Question DetailsAsked on 1/4/2013

my refridgerator is warm but freezer is cold

Absurd...the reason i am asking is because this very topic is featured in an advertisement for your service which one must join to access the answer! Perhaps I should re-phrase exactly as your ad puts it":Help! My freezer is cold but my refrigerator stays warm."

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Some DIY checking.

First, if it normally blows warm air out the bottom when running, be sure that fan is running, and most importantly the "coil" underneath it is clean. You can usually tell with a flashlight, vacuum cleaner and crevice tool, or card board roll from paper towels can be "fashioned" to get it resonably clean.


Second, check that the fan(s) inside are running ,by depresssing door switches with the door open.


You will likely need an appliance repair company, and of course the best in your area are fould on Angie's List. Good Luck!

The first thing to check is the dial in your fridge to see if it got bumped to a higher temperature. The other stuff is a good idea to check as a matter of maintenance, but typically, if the refrigerator coil is dirty then so is the freezer! If that doesn't get it, then call a repairman.

from what I've seen over the years, too many years, unless they hve ice cream in the freezer, most people will notice the wrmer temperature in the refrigerator before the freezer, if it's just a dirty coil.

If the freeze is cold - check the setting in the fridge portion- this on some is operated by a simple flapper door that can stick closed - the flapper allows cold air from the freezer to cool the fridge - Take the control panel out of the rear of the fridge and make sure the flapper door moves freely. If you have one of the larger commercial units-- i.e. sub-zero - you could have 2 compressor units - but this is not the common design.- Good luck

Sounds like it is froze up where the air drops down from the freezer to cool the fridge. Check the floor panel of the freezer to make sure the vent holes are open, or just try thawing the fridge if possible.

pull out the equipment, clean the coils behind and underneath. could be a thermostate that needs replacing but will cost you a service call just to find out ($95 avg). Make sure back of interior of freezer is free from ice build up too. Still cheaper than replacing a fridge.

I just had the same problem a month ago with my GE Profile. Had to get GE here and they did a great job. It is the blower motor. It is behind the racks in the bottom (I have the split fridge: fridge on top, freezer on bottom). They will have to remove the drawers to get to the motor behind the wall. The blower motor keeps the freezer cool, but if not working, the motor has to be replaced. It was $300 including labor. Hope this is helpful.
