Hello - From what you have described it sounds like you might be experiencing some form of sealed system issue or a bad door seal. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. When was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Try checking if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check the door from closing then replace the gasket. If any proves to be ineffective, you would need to contact your manufacturer and then a professional to move forward accurately.

Kenmore refrig/freezer. freezer side is cold,


Check your condenser coil (should be below the refrig.). If dirty, you can clean it with a condenser brush from Home Depot or Lowe's. Turn the appliance off while cleaning. Be careful not to damage the refrigerant tubing (copper). If this doesn't solve the problem, then there may be an issue with the defrost thermostat, defrost heater(s) or the main temperature control assembly.

Contact an appliance service company.

Side by side frezer frezes up icebox side won't stay cold until manualy thaw fezer side the icebox side cools for a few days.


sound like a timmer and a thermostat to me
we have had the same problem from time to time usualy we just change the thermostat out and problem solved
remember to unplug the fridge for a 24 hour period to de thaw the baffels in the fridge after you change the thermostat
also check your drain lines in the back they might also be pluged
another words wrap your lips arround the pipe in the rear of the fridge and blow if there is back preasure then you probably have a blockage

Ariston fridge freezer - drips water


I'm afraid if the door isn't sealing properly and staying cold then the ice will always be melting somewhat and dripping. Is there ANY way to glue/epoxy/fiberglass that part back on or repair the door, etc.? If you can't get repair parts either you may be stuck with a broken cooler. It seems like some shop (boat shop, auto bodyshop, etc.) should be able to repair those items with fiberglass or something. I guess it just depends on the cost to repair verses to buy new again.
