My refrigerator is not cold but the freezer works fine?

All of the cooling in refrigerators is normally done in the freezer compartment. A fan circulates cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment to cool it. Most likely this fan has quit working.

Why does a refrigerator not get cold but the freezer gets cold?

There is insulation between the freezer and refrigerator; additionally, in most refrigerators, the freezer is the only part that is mechanically cooled. The leftover cool air from the freezer is vented into the refrigerator section, and the dials that control the refrigerator's cooling levels generally just determine how much of the freezer air is allowed into the refrigerator chamber.

What is the difference between a refrigerator and a freezer?

A fridge keeps things cool , a freezer freezes things, the mechanics are basically the same.

What is difference between refrigerator air cooler and how?

A refrigerator has a freezer and a cooler compartment. Very cold air from the freezer compartment is blown over the cooler compartment below to cool the product while a Cooler has no freezer compartment.

How do freezer and refrigerator differ?

The freezer and refrigerator are actually parts of a whole. Do keep things extra cool, a freezer the place to put it. (ex. ice) The refregirator keeps the item cool ,but not frozen like (etc. fruit juice.) It all depends the type of item you decide to place in the unit.

Why wont my refrigerator and freezer cool below 44 degrees?

Your refrigerator must be busted. Or you have your temperature knobs above 44 degrees.

Why is the freezer compartment located at the top of a refrigerator?

It is not always at the top as its a refrigerator so it can cool any compartments it contains it contains due to its special mecanism

Why are freezers on top of fridges?

One possible reason is because of the size of the freezer compared to the size of the refrigerator portion. If the refrigerator portion were placed over the freezer, then you would have to kneel down to use the freezer. Another part of it could pertain to convection. Cold air tends to circulate down. So with the right amount of gap between the freezer portion and the rest, just enough cold air can flow down to cool the refrigerator. So the evaporator coils are only in the freezer and yet can cool the entire unit. If the evaporator coils were on the bottom, then only the lower portion of the refrigerator would be cool since heat rises, and some of the cavity space would be wasted. So for simplicity and efficiency, the coils are placed on top and that this area is made the freezer. So they cool only the freezer and have a small opening to let the cold air come down (or warm air to come up to be more accurate) to reach the 34-38 degrees Fahrenheit needed for the refrigerator. Sometimes there is an adjustable damper there. The thermostat is just for the refrigerator in most cases, since if the refrigerator is within proper range, the freezer would be too, all because of the design. On those with a control for the freezer, that control generally moves a little damper (door). So the colder you set the freezer, the harder you are making the refrigerator portion to cool. Since the actual thermostat is located in the refrigerator section, the longer the compressor must run to make that compartment the proper temperature when you close the damper (by setting the freezer control colder).

How do you freeze seafood gumbo?

yes you can freeze it! Cool first in refrigerator so it does not have large molecules of moisture that crystalize into freezer burn. Use high quality freezer ware and leave room for expansion. Also double or even triple wrap in freezer paper and freezer bags. Thaw in refrigerator and eat within 6 months.

Why is your freezer cold but not your refrigerator?

A lot of home units cool solely on the freezer side, and "vent" cooling to the Refridge box side. Either the vent is blocked, or a helper fan, that pushes/pulls the freezer air is not spinning. Is your freezer packed full?

What if it was frozen when you put it in the refrigerator?

It would eventually cool to the ambient temperature of the refrigerator which is warmer than a freezer. Therefore it would reduce to being chilled rather than frozen, effectively defrosting, but slower than it would have done outside the refrigerator

Is it better to keep a freezer in the house than in the garage?

actually it really doesnt matter; in the summer depending on where you live a garage can get warmer and therefor more cool air is inside of the freezer so i suppose it is better.

How long does it take to cool a refrigerator?

It would take about 3-4 hours to cool down and 24 hours to stabilize. It is also faster if you don't turn up the temperature to max because that would only block air flow to the fridge from the freezer until the freezer gets the right temperature.

What is the purpose of refrigerants in a refrigerator?

Refrigerants are substances that maintain a cool temperature and circulate cool air. These substances are used in refrigerators and other cooling systems, as well as in home and automobile air conditioning and heating systems. Your refrigerator must have an adequate level of refrigerant to maintain the temperature needed to keep fresh foods cool and freezer items frozen.#chariechixx^^

Keeping Things Cool with Refigerator Repair?

If you have a refrigerator that needs to be repaired, look at the simple things before getting a new refrigerator. Make sure there is enough coolant in the system to keep it cold and from not freezing up. If the freezer will not keep things frozen, take everything out clean the inside as well as the door of the freezer. Then set the temperature to the middle. In the summer condensation builds up on the door and will not keep the freezer cold.

Can you defrost and refreeze bread?

Yes, place bread in the freezer in the original package. When ready to thaw remove and allow to thaw naturally. I suggest placing in a cool dry place (not in the refrigerator). I do this frequently with bread. I always like leaving my potato bread in the freezer and toasting the slices in a toaster directly out of the freezer.

Why room cannot cool when you open freezer but heated when you open microwave?

The room will cool if you open the freezer and leave it open.

Whata is the difference between a single or double compressor fridge?

Single compressors are used for both the freezer and refrigerator. Normally they pump cool air into the freezer and then into the refrigerator portion. This causes problems usually when your loading groceries and both doors are open. This causes moist air from the freezer to be pumped into the refrigerator at high rates. This can cause freezer burn to happen more quickly and can cause the refrigerator side to pick up too much moisture causing spoilage. Now a double compressor is just what it sounds like, one compressor for each compartment. They work less and much more efficiently to keep the proper temperatures and moisture levels.
