    I have the same problem. The question I have is where can I take it to get a regas or honest opinion of fixing whatever problem there is.

    Have the same problem. Is there a honest place to take it or do I need to take a wild guess in the Yellow pages?

    Thanks

    The refrigerator was working last night but when you press the light button on the freezer side it would make this humming noise. Now both sides with not stay cool at all.

The most likely cause would be that it needs a re gas.
DONT RUN IT LIKE THAT YOU WILL I REPEAT YOU WILL BRAKE THE COMPRESSOR. now we dont want that now.

You should take it in for a regas or if you want you can get a second opp.

but i can tell you now thats the problem...

Good luck.

    Hey all, to post back on youre problems, i cant realy say where to go cause i live in South Africa.

    My oppinion is that you go to a well known Appliances repair shop.Tell them the gas is out and you need a re gas so they know you know what you talk about, and further on...Good luck.

    Colleenjack, the way you describe the problem on your fridge sounds to me like the thermostat,you can test it by opening the thermostat and take the brown and black wires and join them, if your fridge goes on then you know the problem.



    Dont keep runing it like this if it is the problem cause it wont shut off,then you would have a bigger problem.



    Good luck.

Refrigerator freezer is not freezing, all items have thawed, Refrigerator section is cool but not as cool as it usually is. Turned down temperature with no results.


Hi

Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan under the unit to see if it is running.If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.
You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

However there are various reasons as to why refrigerator is not cooling. Please check this link to get an in-depth knowledge related to your issue:-

Freezer works, but has some ice forming and refrigerator not cooling.


The refrigerator half of a refrigerator/freezer does not produce any cold! The refrigerator is cooled by transferring air from the freezer to the fridge. The fridge temperature setting controls a flapper between the freezer and the fridge. There should be a fan which blows air from the freezer into the fridge (through the damper).
If the ice forming in the freezer is concealing the cooling coil and air can not move through the coils, then the overall result will be a warm freezer (even though there may be ice in one location) and a warmer yet fridge. This can be tested by unplugging the fridge and allowing a complete thaw. If the ice is the cause of the problem, then it should work for a short while until it freezes up improperly again
:o).
