Refrigerators not cold and freezer thaws than freezes

    I have the same recurring problem. I came into a new apt and noticed that after a couple of days the fridge bums out on me so while waiting for my landlord to replace it, a friend came with the screwdriver to take the wall off the freezer (after I remove everything). Then I use my clothes steamer to melt all the ice off the cooling unit.... then when i screw the back wall on again, the fridge gets cool after maybe 10 hours until the next time. Whats up with that???

    i have a similar problem. The freezer isnt cold at all. I took off the panel to have a closer look, but everything looks good. If i leave it running after a while it will try to get cold, you can see the coils starting to frost up, this might last for 20 minutes and then its back to the same. All lights work and the fans all seem to be working fine. Its a side by side made by wci, dont know if that helps at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated as i love the fridge and hate to get rid of it.

Defrost system is not working. check defrost heater and thermal fuse. if appliance fitted with electro-mechanical timer then fault probably lies with timer

Refr/freezer alternately gets too cold and thaws


My first thought: defrost timer which shuts off the compressor and turns on a heater in the freezer is sluggish.  I'd change it out.

FREEZER IS COLD BUT NOT FREEZING WELL,FRIDGE IS NOT AS COLD AS IT SHOULD BE


Your freezer fan has stopped working or jammed. It's also possible that your defrost timer has stopped working and that the airways in the freezer are clogged with ice and the air can't circulate to the fridge. One of the two. Good Luck!!

If your light inside does not light when you open the door you problem could be power related. Your description sounds as a power supply problem. Try moving the power cord to another outlet.
