SOURCE: Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets

Setting the control to 9 may make the freezer ice up too much to work right. You can start with a manual defrost. That takes a long time, because the ice is below the freezer liner, stuck in the coils. You'll have to move your food elsewhere, like a cooler. I always take the freezer apart to get at the coils, use a hair dryer to melt the ice. Then you can check the defrost coil, it's like a toaster element. After all that, check the defrost timer too. It's usually down by the compressor area, about the size of a cell phone. It has a small dial on it that only turns one way. Mark it when the fridge is on with whiteout to see if it moves. It moves real slowly, so you will have to wait a half hour or so.
One way to speed up a defrost is to turn the dial on the defrost timer until it clicks. Then the compressor will turn off and the defrost coil will turn on. The freezer fan should be spinning. Feel the output from the freezer fan- anything? If no flow, you're iced up. Keep checking for flow, eventually it should get cold. When you get good airflow, and maybe it's not so cold anymore, you might be defrosted without having to take the whole thing apart. You may have to turn the dial more than once, if the compressor comes back on before you're defrosted. You can help the defrost with your hair dryer thru the vents in the front of the freezer, but not too hot, you don't want to melt any plastic.

SOURCE: The refrigerator part does not get cold. The

to possible reason.

1. Under charge, your refrigerant gas is not enough to accumulate or produce ice, reason possible leak along the pipe line all the way to the back near the compressor (signs: oily part)

cause: Vibration or use of sharp hard object in removing frozen food or ice

2. Lost Compression (Motor compressor) failure to produce enough pressure to accumulate ice.

cause:un stable power distribution or flactuatuion of electric current
or old age of the compressor

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling - freezer is very cold

Hello there:
There are several different things that could make your refrigerator not cool properly.
I have compiled a list of things that you should check out and how to check them ok
It's not cool If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running. First, answer these questions: Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it. Next, see if the compressor motor is running The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help. If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these: The compressor The Thermostat The overload, relay, or capacitor The defrost timer The condenser fan motor Cooling is poor For an overall understanding of how refrigerators should work, read about refrigerators in the How Things Work section of our website. A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas: Evaporator coils Condenser Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.
I will continue the rest of the post in a seperate post to allow for full detailed instructins

My Whirlpool does not get cold enough. It has 5 x


This means that the thermostat section is faulty as it seems to sense the temperature with an error.
When it is set at a higher level is seems that the circuit seems to get a wrong error and so cuts off. Also if the compressor is not pumping well or the gas is down the cooling will be low.
Try and see on the maximum setting if there is cooling and the point it cuts off, if this get you the best cooling and if the compressor shuts down on reaching this temperature. If so the control unit is a suspect.

Iceream is not freezing


The temperature is not set to high cooling.First check the temperature setting.But if temperature is set right and still the ice cream is not cooling then .Problem relates to weak compressor. ------------- The problem is weak compressor.The refrigerant ( R12) in the compressor is got low.The compressor is weak.The compressor needs to be replaced.-------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.------------ But as you mentioned that ice cream is not freezing, so that means freezer is not freezing to its required temperature.------- This indicates problem with compressor.When compressor cools the freezer section then fridge section gets cold.If freezer section is not getting properly cold then fridge section will not cool properly/.So the problem relates to compressor.---------- In the compressor there is a refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this Freon the compressor cools the freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling agent.The compressor will stop cooling when coolant gets leaked from its chamber.--------- Again recharging the Freon is possible, but the cost for that recharging is approx the cost of new compressor.So its always advisable to get compressor replaced.Because new compressor has warranty for few years.------------------ You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Samsung model rs267 says OF on both temp displays


Freezer and refrigeration isn't working
There is no temperature indicating for Celsius of Fahrenheit it just displays OF.
The letters "OF" on the display of your refrigerator indicate the Cooling Off mode has been activated. To cancel this mode, press the Lighting and Freezer buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds until a chime sounds and the display returns to normal, allowing you to set the desired temperature. The compressor should turn on in about 5 minutes and begin producing cold air. Thanks-Helpful?

Defrost system problem will be indicated by frost (snow) on back wall or cooling coil is located in the freezer compartment. Check freezer control setting. If it is set to cold for the freezer it reduces cold air to the refrigerator section.
