Is the freezer of your fridge cold but the fridge warm? If yes, then this can be a big issue.
There could be many reasons behind your freezer staying cold but the refrigerator is warm. Here are some possible causes for this issue. Read on and know more!
Possible reasons that your freezer is cold but the fridge is warm
- The evaporator coils may have too much frost on them
The first possible reason for your freezer being cold but not the fridge may be that the evaporator coils may have accumulated too much frost on them. When the evaporator coils frost over time, air is unable to pass through and get cold. Hence, you would first manually defrost the coils by applying hot air to them with a hairdryer. Once done, you should let your fridge continue to work normally. If you see that the coils are frosting over again, then you should check the defrost heater assembly to ensure it is working fine. You may have to get your defrost heater assembly replaced. The problem may also be happening because your defrost thermostat is not working properly. If it is the culprit, then you will need to change it.
- Problem with the defrost timer
Another potential problem may be that the defrost timer is not functioning properly. When the defrost timer is advanced, it offers the power to the heating element. As the defrost timer continues to advance, it cuts the power to the heating element. As a result, it offers the power to the cooling element. Hence, if the timer is stuck, it may get stuck in one of the two modes. You should get a technician to test the timer and get it replaced if it is a problem maker.
- Your evaporator fan may not be working
Another reason for your freezer being cold but not your fridge is that your evaporator fan may not be working. Yes, if the evaporator fan is not working, a single door refrigerator or a double door refrigerator may not circulate the cold air around. If it is not working, you will need to replace it.
- Something is amiss with the damper control assembly
The damper’s work is to control the amount of cold air that flows from the freezer to the refrigerator section. If it is stuck or broken, the fridge may not become cold enough.
- Your thermistor is unable to work
Another aspect to note is that if the thermistor fails, then a fridge may not be able to monitor its temperature. If it has happened, then the fridge might either continue to cool or stop cooling at all. If it is not working anymore, you will need to change it to get your fridge back on the track.
