Admiral LTF2112ARW cooling problems

I turned off my refrigerator for several months, and now when I turned it back on, the refrigerator and freezer won't cool down. It is an used fridge that came with my house, and I don't have the manual for it. It sounds like the compressor and the fans are all working fine, but it won't cool down.

First I would make sure the compressor is running.

Unplug the Ref. for about 15-20 min, plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will have to be behind the Ref to tell the difference between the compressor fan and the compressor. If the compressor clicks and doesn't run then the relay on the compressor should be replaced. If it runs then it is probably low on coolant.

I have an Admiral LTF2112ARW refrigerator. The refrigerator is working but the freezer won't stay cold even though the thermostat is on the coldest setting. Any suggestions about what is wrong?


ITS NOT A GOOD IDEA TO USE THE COLDEST SETTING CUZ WHAT U WILL GET IS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE A MORE WARM SETTING. A HIGH SETTING CAUSES THE COMPRESSOR TO OVER WORK IT SELF CREATING TO MUCH COLD IN ONE SECTION TO THE NEGLECT OF THE OTHER SECTION. UR PROBLEM IS NORMALLY THE OTHER WAY AROUND TO MUCH FREEZER AND NOT COLD IN FRIDGE.? BUT i WOULD CHECK THE THERMISTORS IN THE FREEZER. AND ALSO TRY ADJUSTING UR SETTINGS TO MED AND CHECK UR AIR FLOW CONTROL VENT AKA COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT.

My Admiral mullion is hot


Probably the defrost element has failed, ice & frost will continue to build up & it's ability to cool will deminish over time. Has to be checked & possibly replaced.

Admiral ltf2112arw. Freezer fan icing, hitting blades and refrigerator not cooling well


The first thing you want to do is open the freezer and see if the fan inside there is running. The reason is the freezer cools the refrigerator side by circulating air from the freezer. If the fan is running then your problem is one or more parts of the defrost system is malfunctioned and in return your problem arises. There are three parts to the system, the defrost timer or in some cases control board, defrost thermostat also known as a bi-metal, and the defrost heater. The defrost system is set up to operate as so. The defrost timer or control board will turn the machine off, in some cases every 8 hours, some 12. During this time period the defrost heaters, located behind the freezer wall and rest underneath the evaporator, yet wires to them run up the side of it, are energized and emit heat that raises upward to melt the ice that has formed on the evaporator coils. The bi-metal or defrost thermostat is at the top of the evaporator. When the heat from the heater starts to reach the bi-metal, it breaks the circuit turning the heater off. The whole purpose of this is because the freezer cool the refridgerator side by drawing air across the coils and blowing to the other side via the evap fan motor. In my opinion, if you change one part of the defrost system change them all because usually when one part fails another will follow, so save yourself the time and the food loss, the cost difference is minute.

Not cooling


It's probably either a defective thermostat, fan or compressor.

Side by side Admiral freezer freezes but fridge


check the damper vent door between the refrige and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air from freezer into the refrige,sometimes they freeze up and cant open and close when called upon to do so,if so deice it with a hair dryer,the side being hot is good telling you the compressor is operating correctly
