you dont say how old the unit is or the make,if i assume its an old one i would buy new cos its cheaper to run,make sure its able to run in you garage temperature as most new units will only operate at +10C to +35C and you will need to be able to have one that runs at cooler temp during winter.(depending where you live).i bought mine from a garage sale after checking the rating plate,.paid a quarter of shop price for one that was only 9months old.

You need to put a heat source in the fridge compartment near the fridge thermostat. Try putting a lower wattage bulb (40w) into the fridge compartment. Or even try this, take the door switch out of the fridge and short the two leads together. Tape the exposed ends with electrical tape and that should provide enough heat to keep your compressor on long enough to keep the freezer cold. Just remember to put the switch back in in the spring and summer months or you will have a real high electrical bill. Hope this helps you.

All of the new one will not work well in a garage. Your best bet will be a unit that is more than 7 years old. If you cant find one try a Hotpoint, this is GEs little brother. The hotpoints have an older design. I use one in my garage Model # HTS18GBSWW You should be able to find this at any appliance store around $500.

GFI outlet is tripping because of refrigerator in the garage.


Hi: Yes, replace the GFI outlet. A refrigerator should not be plugged into one for what you are experiencing and food loss. This was an easy answer for me, but unfortunately not for you The owners manual covers this, but us men don't read them (Well I had to as I worked with them for 30 years). Good luck, Jeff

Freezer not working in garage top mount freezer on refrigerator


Sears is technically correct. It wouldn't work with the old coolant either. The principle is simple. The refrigerator is the same temp as your garage - it is not running. It must be in a 60 degree room to work properly. The sensor to turn it on is in the fresh food compartment, and it never calls for cooling; therefore it appears you freezer only is out - but they both work together. Hope this helps!

Switch off fridge unscew & lower stat & light housing, note positions of blue doulble wire & red/grey, the blue wire spade is permanent live for light, fit red/grey to this spade the motor should then run,I let it run for 5mins then replaced wires to there normal position,I think it is due to fridge not running enough when cold. it worked for me so try it. (at your own risk.) best of luck.

Whirlpool Freezer doesn't freeze?


insulated or not, garages are generally too cold for new energy efficient frigs to operate. ambient temp needs to be above 60 to work efficiently.
