Re: What do I do to the fridgerator when I turn off the...
It all depends on where you live and how old your fridge is . if you live where the inside of your house can reach 100 degrees you may have damage to your door if your fridge was made after 1995 if it was made before that date the foam in the door can take 140 degrees before it expands and damages the door . never leave a newer fridge in the sun , the door will expand and be ruined ..cold will do nothing except to the ice and or water in the door systems . i hope this helped , you did not give me much to work with . dont forget to prop the doors open a little , good luck ......Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob

You will need to clean the condensor coil. It is usually under the refrigerator on newer models and in the rear on older models. All you need to do is use a vacuum to clean it. Also try to leave some room behind the refrigerator, do not keep it too close to the wall. It needs to circulate the warm air it extracts.
Look under there and see if any junk is blocking the airflow causing the condenser fan motor to howl.You can oil it with zoomspout oil. It is safe for refrigerators. Don't use WD-40 (flammable) Give it a good clean and verify the fan is moving the air down there. Just cleaning it greatly improves airflow and cooling efficiency. Let me know how it does. Give it a day after cleaning.
Open the door and depress the door/light switch,the evaporator fan motor should run.If it doesn't make sure the thermostat is set cold enough.If it is,you could have a bad defrost timer.they are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace.Every day the compressor and evap,motor shut down for @ 10 min and the heaters are turned on to defrost the evaporator to prevent ice buildup.You could have a compressor problem also but lets hope not.
The fridgerator needs to be defrosted, take everything out of the freezer and refridgerator and unplug it for about 8 hours to allow all the ice to turn into water and then clean out all the water and clean the fridge and make sure it is all dry, now turn it back on and it should be good to go.
due to lots of moisture in the air or high humidity it creates extra frost in the freezing unit this creates blockage in the air flow once the ice crystals build up. the freezer is what keeps the fridge at the normal temperature if the air flow between the two are blocked in the ducting then the fridge temperature will rise the best way to solve this is to open the freezer take out the 4 screws in the back panel tilt the panel forward and blow it with a blow dryer till the ice chunk has melted its a good idea to use a towel and on the top self of the fridge to obsorb excess water this can be kinda messy. or you can unplug your fridge for about 6 or so hours. good luck hope i helped. :)
