Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator
do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other
things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the
last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start
trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling
a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
Good day, Your on the right track. The defrost system has failed. It is made up of 3 components. The main defrost heater, mounted to the bottom of the cooling coil behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment, the defrost thermostat which is a small round disk with 2 wires coming out of it located in the same area clipped to the top of the coil, and lastly, the timer which is located in the food compartment, on the roof behind and to the rear of the controls.
To test the timer, (there is a small hole to stick a screw driver into it) turn the shaft clockwise until the machine turns off. Wait 45 minutes. If the machine comes back on, the timer is O.K. Replace the defrost thermostat. If not replace the timer. It is possible the main heater has failed, but it is a rare occurrence.
i think you mean its not freezing at the top? if this is so, sounds like you have a gas leak, you cannot fix this yourself unfortunately you may require a technician to fix the leak and top up your gas.. make sure they fix the leak or this will happen again. hope i have helped
Sounds like a sticking gas valve or a defective hot surface igniter. Open the broiler drawer or remove the bottom cover in the oven compartment. The oven usually has a hot surface igniter or a spark igniter. Turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start glowing. It should glow very bright. Once it is glowing the burner gas should come on. If you hear the gas come on it should light right away. If there is any delay shut off the oven and stay back. Let the gas clear out then inspect the area near the igniter and make sure the burner is not plugged(the little holes may have debris in them). If you turn on the oven and the igniter comes,glows brightly,no gas is heard but you can smell gas it is either a blocked burner orfice/assembly or sticking gas control valve. Try giving the burner and gas control valve a tap and see if it comes on. If you tap the control valve and it starts working then shut of the oven and try it several times. If it starts to come on and off now you may have cleared whatever debris was causing the problem. If it does it again then it could be the control valve or a weak hot surface igniter. The igniter can be tested with a ohm meter. Most of the time when I get this complaint it is the oven control valve that is sticking. Be very careful when doing these procedures....gas can build up in the oven compartment very quicky and flash if ignited. Always have the gas shut off valve at the back of the range within reach and the electrical outlet in case you need to unplug it.
You may have an obstruction in the air vent from the freezer compartment to the frig .there should be an airflow adjustment next to the thermostat. Middle setting is recommended. Since you say the freezer is working properly, I cannot see any other possibility. hope this helps.
