It may be the compressor overheating it could be the relay but if the compressor is hot then you are low on freon and need to have it recharged

HI change the main board its about $150-200. Will fix all your problems except the lightbulb would be a lightsocket problem or the bulb you put in is bad, or door switch.

At first the freezer wasn't freezing and the fridge part was getting cold, now it's reversed, the fridge is not getting cold and the freezer does...It does runs, could it be freon?


Turn the freezing unit down to the lower number,and the fridge compartment up to about 7 or 8.Leave it over night to balance.

39 ltr engle fridge freezer wont shut off when at temp


hi,

the temp should be around 35-40 in the fresh side and below freezing in the freezer. If the probe is positioned wrong then it may not shut off. Does the probe need to be in the freezer compartment?If the freon level is wrong then the freezer may not get cold enough to shut down the control tstat. The low side pressure should be around 5 PSI.


thank you for using fixya,rate my answer

Freezing in refrigerator


Inside the fresh food compartment on top left there is something called an air baffle. It runs between the freezer and fresh food compartment and its purpose is to electrically control the amount of cold air coming from the freezer. Sometimes they freeze open and will not close. So you may need to turn off the refrigerator during the time you examine it. Look for ice blocking the movement of the baffle damper. Sometimes just one time clearing the problem is all you need to fix it. Let me know what you find and if you are able to get it going again, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a Roper RT21LMXKQ00 Freezer wont freeze


The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

How old is the fridge?

You did all the right things!!

But this sounds like a bad thermostat.
or a bad control switch.

Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here!
Let me know how you do! Or if you need something else.
We do have very good sponsors here on this site that do repair work, should you take this course!
