Gladiator fridge/freezer not getting cold, not sucking in air

My 4 year old Sears Gladiator garage fridge and freezer is not getting cold at all. The unit seems to be running and the lights are on. I have cleaned the condenser coils at the bottom of the unit. Normally the fridge and freezer will **** in air after you close the door (and it is sometimes hard to re-open the door right after you close it) but now the unit does not **** in air.

Refrigerator repair problem

The answer to your question is an easy one! But not one you are going to like..

There is only one refrigerator/freezer combo, that I know of, that will work in a garage during the winter months and that is the gladiator..

I pulled up your owners manual and on page 9 it says
"do not install the refrigerator where the temperature will go below 60'f because it will not run often enough to maintain proper temperatures"

This is in every owners manual I have ever looked at with minor differences in the temperature rating.

It has one thermostat.. and that thermostat is looking for 36'-40' typically so if you get a string of days that are 40' out then the fridge may only come on a couple times a day causing the freezer to defrost but the fridge to stay normal. The fridge may freeze on colder days.

This issue is nothing new and salesmen sell you a fridge that they say will work in the garage but the owners manual says otherwise.

Frigidaire came out with a garage kit that did not work.. Then a control board to monitor run time and that doesn't work either..

A stand alone freezer will be fine.. or a stand alone fridge will be ok too unless it freezes from outdoor temperature.. But a combo will not work unless it is a gladiator. Or some very expensive "dual cool" units that no one would spend that kind of money for something in the garage.

I'm in Ohio so I am familiar with the Northeast :)

Side by side Whirlpool in insulated cold garage ompressor seems to be running all the time, freezer not working fridge is warm

Sounds like low on freon. Some refrig. has a charging port. It may even say on name tag what type of freon to use. You need a guage to check if unit is low on freon.

My freezer works but my refrigerator wont stay cold...getting warm. it is 4 years old. what could be wrong?

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Our gladiator bottom freezer/refrigerator stopped working while we were on vacation last week. The motor still runs, but the air blowing out is not cold. We cleaned it out, unplugged it and plugged it in...

It is possible that your compressor has redduced in pumping or the gas pressure has redduced, ;leakage of gas. Sicne you had put off the fridge for sometime and tried again without any result, I think the compressor needs a good check. Since the fridge has to cool definately when the motor runs we must start from here . I hope you check this out or maybe get help to confirm definetely with an estimate. Good day.

Frigidaire Freezer Runs Warm in Cold Weather

hi there the problem you have is that the temp in the garage is to low, the fridge part of your fridge freezer has priority and will only activate the compressor when req'd ie. in cold weather the fridge may not need to switch on the compressor for days at a time this is when the freezer will defrost.
All you can try doing is having some very low heating in your garage in the cold weather

hope this is of help.
