Question about Admiral 26 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator
Admiral 21.6 CF, HMG62163 (about 1990-91, s/side) started freezing most foods on lower two shelves as well as in drawers, even with temp at warmest settings. Freezer is running extremely cold, too--ice cream is like a block of ice. Circulation fan seems to run overtime. Can't tell what compressor is doing. Concurrent with the extreme cold temperatures, the water dispenser and ice maker stopped working; I.e., no water to either unit and ice motor (auger) wouldn't turn over. After 2 or 3 days, the ice water worked. Next day the ice maker worked fully. Then water disp started working intermittently for a day or two. Food on lower two exposed cooling shelves still freezes but ice maker is okay for now. Are these other issues thermostat-related? Can you recommend a good troubleshooting or repair manual, or is "The Admiral" ready to be retired? Will dirty grills cause such problems? We've not moved/cleaned under or behind refrig for 9 or 10 years. (We've never been able to adjust flow of cold air to vegetable bins to keep food from freezing. We accepted that as a stupid engineering flaw re baffles, controls, etc., within weeks of buying the unit.)
Hi! your problem was temperature control,it is malfunctioning.. replace your termostat.
