Question about Refrigerators
Yes it could bea bad defrost timer, or the thermostat, even possibly the defrost element. The element and thermostat are easily checked by testing continuity across each of the terminals.If both the element and the defrost limit thermstat check good then the defrost timer more that likely needs replaced. if the heator or limit thermostat are bad i recomend replacing both of them at the same time while you have the cover off. Be sure to unplug the unit before taking the panel off and testing.

If this is a standard refrigerator it could indicate that the unit is short of refrigerant.

SOURCE: fridge not staying cold
Solo, firt make sure you do not have a build up of frost on the freezer inside panel. This would indicate a defrost problem. Your post states that the cooling problem is intermitant which leads me to believe that the automatic damper is at fault. It could have a build up of ice on it which is causing it to bind, or it could just be going bad. Your model does have the manual defrost timer which could be sticking at times, that is why I suggest checking the back freezer panel for frost buildup. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: freezer cold, not fridge
8 to 10 hours depending on how much warm items you placed inside to cool down. Make sure your fresh food section settings are set for medium. I'm not sure from what country you are from but a standard setting for both freezer and refrigerator should be set both mid way. For example (not that you need help here) 1 being the warm being the warmest and 10 being the coldest. Now some companies go like 1 being the coldest and 10 being the warmest. But 5 should be set up for first time start ups no matter where you are from. Thanks, Sea Breeze
