Question about Refrigerators
Just had fridge delivered and there is a piece of styrofoam in the vent where the air blows into the fridge and this seems to be a packing piece but is not listed on any of the literature I can find on this model. The air flow seems restricted to me and I think this piece should be out, but I am not sure if it is supposed to be part of the design (if so, that seems slightly stupid?). There is not much air blowing into the fridge, while the freezer has already started to cool considerably.

This is normal, the vents are lined with styrofoam to help minimize loss of cooling when the air is circulated from the freezer section into the fridge section.
Most of the vent and cold air channels are made entirely from styrofoam these days in most fridges.
Most packing foam is in plain sight and usually held in place with tape, so it is highly unlikely that any packing foam would be behind anything mounted permanently in a fridge.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

After pulling the fridge away from the wall and removing the lower right hand panel I noticed that the compressor (big round black ball with copper tubing) was not turning on. I also noticed that there was a ticking or popping sound comming from it every couple of minutes or so. After doing some research online in numerouse forums I decided to try and replace the overheat relay that is attached to the compressor. It only took maybie five minutes at most to change it and the compressor is now working with nice cold air comming into the fridge and freezer. Hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

the evaporator coils should be on the inside of the freezer/fridge,the outside coil is your condenser coil and the air needs to be able to move freely through it for it to work properly.there may also be an auxiliary set of coils that sit in the water run over pan that helps evaporate the runoff,this run off also helps the frig work better by cooling the condenser.this set of coils may or may not have air flow usually not.If it is blowing cool air give it time sometimes a old machine needs to run for a while before it starts to work .

most likely the drain is clogged..if it is, the water flows to the path of least resistance, hence, into the air vents and down under the crisper..remove rear freezer panel. the drain pan is located under evaporator. Defrost the drain pan if there is ice in it. there will be a small drain hole. this is where you need to see it gets open via hot water and all will be ok..make sure you hear or see it flowing into drain pan...Bruce Denton, master tech
