Question about Refrigerators
My fridge's thermostat not working though yesterday it did cut, then restarted again, but it didnt cut then, so i have resorted to switching off the fridge for 2hrs, its a double door fridge,
It had gas refilled after lying idle for 2 months,
1) the gas in the refrigerator never has to be refilled, it is a sealed system. some one ripped you off. 2)if the thermostat is bad they are easy to replace. take the model # and bring it to your local parts house. sears now repairs all brands so if you have no parts house go to sears repair center. 3)you say the thermostat doesn't shut off. does the milk or soda in the refrigerator section freeze? get a food thermometer and leave it in a glass of water check the temp. of the water after an hour or two it should read 37- 42 degrees.if it is colder than that what setting is the thermometer set at, it should be on the energy efficient setting or the middle of the range.. if after all these minor checks, make sure your doors are closing properly and the light is going off. you may have a door adjustment problem. if allthese tests are ok then get a new thermostat, but remember all parts are not returnable so make sure you get the part you need. self help books are available at your local library check one out!

Oncce the fridge was shut off and left for a while the cooling had come back . If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
If after about 6 hours you observe cooling it is possible that the defrost timer is faulty.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
replace the defrost timer, heater or thermostat one you have confirmed to eliminate one by one.
