Question about Refrigerators
Sounds like the start of a defrost problem, open your freezer and see if the back wall has any frost on it. if so your evap coil is in-packed with ice and it won't be long till you start to lose cooling in the freezer also. If you don't have ice on the back wall check the evap fan motor to hear if it's running ( you should hear it when u open the freezer door or feel the air movement.) note: if the evap fan motor is not running that may also cause frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If the fan is not running remove the back wall and check the fan wires for 120 volts ac.if you have power replace the motor. Also with the back wall removed you can check the defrost t-stat and defrost element you should read a closed circuit on the heater and with the evap coil frozen you will also read a closed circuit on the t-stat to. If the defrost element or t-stat check bad replace that part, if they check good replace the defrost timer. you can hit the coil with a hair dryer to thaw it out till you get the part you need, that will buy you about 3 days. Good luck hope this helps you
