When a non-electronically controlled domestic frost free refrigerator is too cold, it's one of three things. Either the controls are set wrong, the cold control is insensitive, or in rare cases and only on certain designs, if the compressor is weak. In this case the evaporator temperature is not cold enough to operate the control properly. Also, on manual defrost or semi automatic defrost designs, sometimes it can just be that the clip that holds the controls sensing tube is loose or has come off. good luck

Upright Freezer not cold enough


Honestly it sounds as if you have a sealed system issue, most likely low on freon.

Botttom will not cool but top cools


Do you see frost built up on back wall of freezer if so it is not defrosting and this is what needs to be checked, remove back wall of freezer and check these;
Defrost heater-- it usually is at bottom of the evap. coil, to check it remove wires to it ,use a meter set to the lowest ohms setting and check for somewhere between 10-50 ohms if that is what yours is its good if meter reads OL replace defrost heater

Defrost thermostat-- if clips to the top of the evap. coil and is metallic,round , about the diameter of a quarter with a plastic side with 2 wires coming from it(do not confuse it w.thermister),remove wires and check for ZERO ohms WHEN TESTING IT MUST BE COLD so check it when frost is built up,IF meter reading is OL (WHEN COLD) its the problem

Defrost timer or defrost control if has digital display to show tempature
check timer(it could be anywhere except in freezer) by turning till you hear a click,the defrost heater should come on within 5 minutes if the heater does come on the timer is the problem and needs to be replaced,if the heater does not come on the above mentions parts (heater/t-stat) will be the problem.
defrost control is hard for unskilled lay persons to check SO IF heater and defrost t-stat are good replace control

Hope this helps,

Freezer & fridge not cold enough


Please check the Thermostat switch settings. Try to put it to max cool and then see the results. If it still does not cool the you have to check the refrigent. It is lee and leaking somewhere. Get a technician and get it charged up.

Turned off freezer, because didn't need to use it. went to turn it on again but it wont get cold, also it's out in the porch during the winter. so it really cold out there.It does come on but won't get...


Good day,
If you can hear it running but does no cooling then either you have lost the refrigerant charge, or the system has developed a restriction somewhere in the lines. It will require the attention of a professional.. If the machine is under 5 years of age, then the factory will cover the repair.
Call your selling dealer for a warranty repair.

Plugged in the freezer full of meat, and it did not freeze...


My advice to you is to transfer the meat to another place (preferably somewhere cold, for both the sake of the meat, and your freezer), let the compressor cool down, and then try starting the freezer. If it does start (it should), let it run until it has pulled the box down to 0 F. Then add the meat back in. Note at the beginning I told you to store the meat somewhere cold. It can be quite an overloading situation for the freezer, not only to have to pull itself down to such a cold temp, but when you add a bunch of "warm" meat to the appliance it is just to much of a load for it to handle. Hope this helps

Compressor is running, but is not getting cold. evaperator fan is not running. freezer has been sitting unused for awhile. can feel one pipe getting cold but nothing beyond where it goes into a part I dont...


Ok often when fridges and airconditioners have not been used for a time the liquid that gets compressed becomes thick and sludgy. This sludge is like cholesterol in arteries. That is what is happening in your system.

In essence it needs a service to recapture the liquid gas and refill after cleaning.Especially the control valve

You could try a quick fix by turning the unit upside down ( if that's even possible in your situation) this often relieves the blockage by gravity,allowing it to be returned to the bottom of the tank. The restarting allows the circulation to start again and will eventually start to work correctly. However this is often only a tempory fix and will require a service intervention to replace the valve that may be stuck closed and have the problem occur over again.
if you can see the valve, a thickened cyleinder somewhere on the cold pipe you might also want to try tapping it with a rubber mallet to see if you can unstick the valve.

even in the middle of winter the A/C should be run for a few minutes every week to ten days just to keep the liquid gas from becoming thick and sludgy. This applies to your car A/C as well
