Question about Refrigerators
Fridge was in garage working perfect. We moved it inside, did not lay down at all, fridge remained upright, only had to move it about 8ft. Now that it's inside the freezer works perfect, but the fresh food side isn't getting cool. It was unplugged when we moved it for approx. 10 min at the most and like i said never layed on side or nothing. Now it's not cooling!!! Please help.... Looked at fan and nothing is bent or rubbing, coils underneath are not hot or warm at all. Model # 106.56542400
The first thing you need to do is take out the bottom drawer in the freezer and look into the slots in the back panel. Make sure that you can see silver coils, and not a bunch of frost. If there is, then you need a new defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost terminator.
If all looks ok then make sure the fan in the freezer is running. (You may have to push the door switch if yours has one.) If the freezer fan isn’t blowing however, the freezer will be warm at the top and cool at the bottom, and you fresh food compartment will be warm.
Another thing to make sure is that the light it turning off when the door is closed. Again you would have to push on the door switch. I was amazed to learn when I first started this line of work, that even a little light bulb can make enough heat to cause a problem.
These are the most common issues.
Let me know if everything looks ok and I will go over some other things, as the list of things that can go wrong with a refrigerator is fairly long.
