Jim,

Before you panic... Clean the condenser coils on the outside of the box. Defrost completely to remove internal icing which causes problems. Restrict how humidity gets into the box...door open, uncapped containers. You may actually not need a repair. Good luck.

To check low gas: Leave unit off for one hour. Locate the compressor...that's when you're cleaning those coils. Find the largest tube. Turn the unit on and wait. If, after 15 minutes, the tube is still full of frost...not ice...you will need someone to add gas to the unit. If dry, icy or wet, enjoy your working fridge.

Kelvinator Cyclic 330 not getting cold enough


Empty the refigerator and freezer, unplug it for about 8 hours, leave freezer door open so it will completely defrost. Plug it back in for 4 hours and close doors before you fill it back up with food. If you have a thermometer, check the interior temperatures before you fill it back up. Refigerator should be around 42 degrees F.

Fridge is not keeping the food cold, water at the bottom of fridge, freezer is not as cold, still freezes things but takes a long time. This is a Kenmore 20 fridge, my guess is 15 years old.


unplug the fridge and leave the doors open for 48 hours, then see if your problem is gone 24 hours later after you plug it back in, if it is, your fridge needs to have a repair to the defrost side of things, most likely the defrost termination therm or the defrost timer, also make sure the drain under the evaporator is not plugged up

My freezer frosted over everything because the door was not shut tight and now it will not clear.


take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug the fridge and get a hair dryer and start melting out all the ice in the freezer,then blow the hot air into the vent holes on the back wall until you don't see any more water dripping down through the slots in the back wall.turn the machine back on,open the fridge door after around 5 or 10 minutes and if you feel cold air blowing into the fridge you fixed the problem,if you don't feel cold air keep hitting the inside back wall with the hair dryer and keep blowing the hot air into the holes in the back wall.all that it does is the freezer gets cold and there's a fan behind the back wall in the freezer,the fan blows the cold air into the fridge side,if the air ducts are frozen the air can't circulate into the fridge section so you have to melt the ice out so the cold air can blow from the freezer to the fridge.good luck,if you have another fridge remove the food and unplug it and leave the doors open for a day and it will melt out.good luck

Frost and freezing in the fridge


its warm damp air getting into the fridge causing the frosting if it builds up to much the fridge will find it hard to keep things coold down and you will need to "de-frost" it,,to do this rap all your food up in a blanket to keep it cool them switch off the fridge and put a tub of boiling water in side it leave the door open the frost will soon fall away,,wip out the fridge with "by carb" and switch it back on for an hour or so before you put your cold food back in it

With the dial set to the coldest setting it doesnt get very cold it does a little but not enough to keep food from spoiling in about two days


How old is your appliance?
I don't think is safe to keep storing food in the appliance as you may get sick for food poisoning.

This may be caused by a dirty condenser. You may need to clean the back of the fridge. Be sure to remove dust and other particles that may keep the appliance working improperly. If you have the fridge installed outside - the garage, for example - put a fan to blow some air to the back of the fridge.

Freezer working well fridge not working at all


there is a fan in the back of the freezer that pushes air into the fridge side of the fridge it sounds like this has gone out on you. this fan is usually right by the coils in the freezer the only thing that keeps the fridge cold is a little air being pushed over there constantly

Food is freezing


usually there is an adjustment at the back for the difference between the fridge and freezer compartment. Often is just a vane that blocks freezer air, too much air would freeze the food. Normally you set the fridge thermostat for a normal food temp, then adjust the air to keep the food warmer than the freezer.
