Question about Refrigerators
The motor will stop running and everything in the freezer and fridge starts to warm up. I have found that if I unplug the refrigerator for 30 seconds and then plug it in again, it starts working again. This happens about two or three times a week. Why does it go into the "auto defrost" mode -- assuming that's my problem -- and how can I prevent it from doing that? Or how can I get it to go back on by itself without my having to unplug it? Thank you!

it is almost certainly a defrost problem. when fault has occured, remove freezer bzck panel and see if there is ice build-up. if so this confirms a defrost problem - possibly that the element is open circuit

You will need to replace the electronic mother board which is located in the back of the refrigerator,Inside rectangular cover near the bottom left.

Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).
Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.
