    Found that mice had chewed the wires. When wires were repaired the frig ran, but it still does not get cold.

If the lights are on and it will not run, then you need to check for corrosion around the connection on the compressor and start switch.

    What you`ll need to do is make sure everything has power going to it. There may be other problems such as the mice. If you cannot find anything else wrong you may want to consider using the FixYa repair service finder.

Start by checking the compressor. If it is running,you should tell by it being warm and a slight vibration/hum....it will start and should run until thermostat stops it. Since it's not cooling, it should be running all the time. There are 2 copper or stainless tubes entering the compressor. One should be hot;the other cold. If both are same temp,or the compressor not running,or is hot to the touch, your compressor is done for(some have a removable connector with contacts that are replaceable) Compressors aren't cheap.

Sounds like a defrost failure.
Look on the back wall of the freezer from the inside.
If it is covered in ice your defrost system has failed.
Also check the fan motor in the freezer.
If it is not running it must be replaced.

Even though i have the frig set at 1 and the freezer at 4, things in my frig are freezing. What could be wrong?


the way that works is if you set the fridge area vent wide open and freezer at 4.
then you have called for most of all the cold air to blow from the freezer in to the cooler area.
this causes the cooler area to be to cold. go the other way with the fresh food setting and give it 48 hrs.

Fruits & Veggies are freezing in both lower frig compartments


Good day,
This problem appears in spades this time of year, every year.
The problem becomes more severe when the temperatures in the house cools down and is made even worse if the usage of the machine becomes lighter.

It occurs when the machine is off, not on.
There is an open vent, near the bottom, between the freezer compartment and the fresh food compartment. This opening or vent is necessary when the machine is running, so that the air pumped into the top of the fresh food section, can return to the freezer compartment. This is by design.
Now,
When the machine is off, the zero degree air from the freezer compartment. can drift into the fresh food compartmnet and drop the temps near the bottom to below freezing.
Off time increases substantialy at this time of year.
Some have even recommended turning the controls colder to offset the problem, but I've no proof it works well, or even a little.
SXS and top freezer models experience it more than bottom freezer models.

Frig stopped cooling, unplugged & replugging worked - now what?


hi try out the following settings....
Check your temperature setting.
- Check if no ice present in the evaporator, try the defrosting
- Check vents if air is present if no then check your blower if running or icing evaporator.
- Check your vents if not obstructed with stocks, or the unit is not overloaded with stocks.
- Check if compressor is running continues, if not then you need a qualified technician.

i think after checking this it will work out for u.!!!
thank u
rate me!!

yoor lights should be on at the very least, i would check the outlet , plug in a hair dryer or something, no internal lights means you have no incoming power supply
