Explorer Gas Refrigerator

I have a Explorer gas fridge that the temp will only get down to about 40 degress....was wondering if anyone knew what was up with this? It surely isn't the norm. It was given to me and is only a few (maybe 5 to 8) years old. Any suggestions would be appreciated...Thanks :0)

Open the burner orifice up just a little , and i mean only a little, very little !

Posted on Nov 05, 2010


I have a 12 cubic foot explorer and have found that if the burner is not keep clean the effiency will go down. I also found that adjusting the flame to the lowest temp does not keep the fridge the coldest. Adjust the flame until you get an even blue flame with minimal yellow in it.You make the adjustment with the temp control.Also clean the chimney, I use a gun cleaning kit. Thanks Dennis

There is a small hairline crack on the outer casing of my fridge and a little bit of ice is forming on it on the outside is this dangerous?

The gases circulate at the back of a fridge in the thin metal pipes. If the pipes are ok, it should be ok but is probably costing you a fortune to run as motor will be on trying to keep temp down.

The oil pressure jumps up to the max when I give it the gas right now. Could that be because its 20 degress outside or should I get it checked.

It is related to the outside temp and the cold temp of the oil. Cold engines with cold oil will read a higher pressure. The pressure should go down to normal when operating temp is reached.

Temp in refridgerator is 40 degrees on bottom shelf with temp gage turned to coldest setting. Is this right?

the normal temperature for a refrigerator is 35-40 degrees F, so 40 at full cold setting is not correct.

If this is a side-by-side or top-freezer, make sure that the air vents between freezer and fridge are not blocked by food items or ice.

Make sure defroster operation is working normally as ice will block airflow.

Also, there is a circulating fan in most models that moves cold air from freezer to fridge. make sure that's working.
