Hello Rob,

I called Traulsen with your model and serial # and was able to ID the manufacture date, Oct 4, 1989.

SOURCE: Freezer works fine, fridge quit

I attempted to locate an answer to resolve the issue for you, but you have not provided me with enough information to access my service database. Based on your description of the issue, however, I will provide a genric answer. If the freezer is working fine then we must assume that none of the cold air is being distributed to the fresh food, (F.F.) compartment. This is accomplished by a fan in the freezer compartment blowing the cold air into the F.F. compartment. Inspect this fan to see if it is operational.(You may have to push in on the door switch to get it to operate). This switch could also be a suspect!
This airflow is controlled by 1. a damper control that mechanically adjusts to change the amount of airflow, and thusly the temperature.
2. An adjustable control that is human ccontrolled and does adjust itself.
Below is a link that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,
Dave E. (Illeagle)

  • The serial number is what will dictate the year and date of manufacture. You did not list this but reference this link with your serial number to quickly identify the date your refrigerator was made. It also makes a difference weather made in Canada or U.S.A. The link I provided offers both.

I need to find the model YEAR for 2 of my fridges...can u do that for me??

You can normally figure an appliance in several ways by -

1) Calling the manufacturer and giving them the model and serial number
2) Look on various components like switches, compressors, etc., and looking for a date code stamped on them, usually in the format of MM-YY like 09-08 for September, 2008, or WW-YY like 23-98 for 23rd week of 1998.
3. All compressors are date coded for sure. If you provide the manufacturer of the compressor and all the data on the nameplate of the compressor, the date of the compressor manufacture can be found, which will give an approximate date of manufacture of the refrigerator.
