Question about Refrigerators
The refrigerator compartment doesn't keep the cold. However the bottom part (freezer) is working. It has been happening for 3 days. We try to put the frozen food from the freezer to the refrigerator to cool a bit the fridge. It is getting worm again upon defrosting the frozen products. Please help!!!
Problem is probably that the evaporator is frozen up preventing circulation of air and the fan is jammed with ice.
remove the back panel inside the freezer. melt off the ice with a hairdryer taking care not to heat up any stats mounted on the pipework.
appliance will now work but this is a temporary repair. you must find out the cause of the ice build-up ie why not defrosting.
for starters, check the defrost heater and the thermal cut-out inseries with it.
let me know how you get on and what you find. make sure the fan is free to rotate.
