Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Inglis Royal System 2000 Model IOT 88190

I am in a rented property and the refrigerator does not seem to be getting cold enough. The freezer is working like a fridge (not freezing bread, ice cream or bottles of water) and the fridge is almost room temperature. I cannot find a temperature control in there, does anyone know where the temperature gauge is???
Thank you.

SOURCE: Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough

If the problem just gradually started happening, it's possibly the defrost cycle that's not working right. Fridge doesn't defrost, the cooling system ices up, and the cold air can no longer travel through the fridge.

You can tell that's the problem if you fully defrost the fridge (turn it off for a day), then start it up again. If it works OK for a while, then does the same thing after a few weeks that's what it is. Either way, you need a repair person to fix it, or you need to defrost it regularly, but then what do you do with your food while you do that???

SOURCE: Freezer cold but not freezing

Check the settings for the freezer control. Refrigerator temperature control normally controls the run time of the compressor. if the freezer control is set to low the refrigerator temperature will be fine and the freezer will be warmer. Setting the freezer control to a colder setting will hold back more cold air in the freezer and reduce the air volume supplied to the refrigerator. Check and make sure the condenser coil is clean.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

SOURCE: samsung fridge freezer not cold enough

Heya,
I did samsung warranty for awhile and these fridges have a faulty defrost termination clixon. What happens is when you turn off the fridge it turns it off defrost. If you do get a tech out there are two parts you need to fix it. One is a yellow sensor cable and the other is a defrost termination wire that is black and red. These two parts i use to sell for $70aus when the fridges where out of warrenty.

I actually have one of these fridges now and work so if you have any other problems please let me know

Regards Mat

We bought used fridge Inglis/Niagara Model ICT85000 Mfg06/93 when we close fridge door freezer door opens. When we close freeze door fridge door opens. This is a top freezer. Is there a repair


Inglis are a budget make. The cold for the fridge comes from a vent from the freezer. Don't let the door slam. You must close them gently.

Inglis refrigerator, model No. 1JT198300


No, This is normal. As the freezer gets cold it also dehumidifies the air in the freezer. There is a drain tube in the bottom of the freezer that directs the water into the basin, where it will evaporate. You should wash the basin every six months and add a little bleach (1/4 cup) when you reinstall the tray. This keeps it disinfected and odorless.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator. The freezer is not cooling enough to keep frozen. It is blowing cold air and the refrigerator part seems to be working.


If your freezer is cold then you may have a defrost cycle issue. There are typically three components for the defrost cycle. Heater bar, thermostat and timer. If the defrost system fails ice starts to build up in the back of the freezer until it prevents cold air from getting into the fridge. When I took off the back panel inside my freezer it was a block of ice. You can melt the ice with a hair dryer and order new parts.

Kenmore 253. I'm renting a house with this refrigerator. Freezer seems ok but fresh food spoils really fast - lettuce brown, berries moldy, etc. How should I adjust the refrigerator? Thanks.


maybe a door seal issue. Worn seals allowing fresh moisture laden air into the box. May not be getting enough cold air, try turning it down. Lettuce browns from oxygen contact, fresh air may be making it brown faster. May also be just how the unit operates.

My freezer works perfect but everything in the refrigerator doesn't get cold enough. My milk sours. My fridge is an inglis and supposedly brand new


Warm fridge cold freezer problem fixed
In the freezer section there was a one screw removable panel which housed a four bladed rotary fan. One blade had broken off adn was jamming the fan from rotating. Once the broken part was removed the fan was free to rotate, but out of balance, but it did get the fridge going again. It took about one minute to replace the fan once a spare was aquired. Now I understand how it works, if one side of your fridge freezer is not working it can only be the air movement or lack of it Robert
