If the rear cooling coils are warm and the refrigerator is level and there is still no cooling, then you more then likely will need to replace your cooling unit. It takes a couple of hours to do but you dont need any specialized tools. Check out ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold Your unit can be found on ebay at under half the price of a new fridge.

My dehumidiyer fan runs, condensor seems to work but the coils do not get cold so thus no condensation. what can i do to get my humidiyer working?

typical for most brands of dehumidifiers.after 2-3 years use the refrigerant/freon leaks out and they wont cool,you can have it recharged,but quite expensive as i charge between $50.00 to $75.00 to do this

I had an ice build up on the freezer and it was working. it melted and is not working at all now. It is less than a year old. the model is mcbr170w

i looked up the model number but couldn't find your machine,anyway don't touch it,call the factory and tell them what's happening,if you touch it or have someone else touch it you can void your warranty because it's under one year old

Need to check the condensor fan. If the fan quit working this could lock out the unit so the compressor does not over heat.

The refrigeration works fine for a few months and at a random interval will stop working. The ice melts and everything else gets warm. When unplugged then plugged back in, it works fine.

What is probably happening is you have ice buildup on your condensor(usaully located behind a panel inside freezer compartment) what happens is ice buildup over time will cause the condensor to stop cooling efficiently.One solution is to unplug frig and let ice melt off condensor, which you should do anyway unless it is a frost free model ,in which case you have a defrost problem. If this is the problem, you should check out the solution in one of my earlier threads posted 9/23 Hope this helps.

The refrigerator portion has quit cooling.

I have the same problem and have found that if you take the panel off inside the refrigerator and with a blow dryer defrost it. It should work for a few weeks. I have been doing this once a month since March and I hope to found out how to fix it also.
