Our frig has been working just fine. It has always gotten cold. We left for vacation so we turned off the electric. Emptied the frig, and it was off. When we returned, we turned the frig back on, and now it just won't get cold. It's blowing, but the air is blowing cold.
I have unplugged it, and tried to start it over, but it simply won't get cold. Can you give me any tips for what I should try to do?
You might have had freon leak out from it sitting unplugged how long were you gone ? plus you need to wait atleast 30 minutes when you unplug your refigerator then plug it back in you cannot keep plugging it on and off it will burn up the compressor / relay overload

If the compressor is running and not getting cold I would say that you have burnt out your compressor.
If it was stuck in defrost you wouldn't hear the frig running. When in defrost the compressor stops while the frig defrosts.
The first thing to always check is the electrical receptacle if it is plugged in good check the breakers in your electrical panel to see if you have a tripped breaker. If that proves to not be the issue it might just be a bad thermostat on your frig. Try turning the frig up to its highest setting. Then you will know if the thermostat is working or not. BB
you did just fine defrosting it but, when you put everything back in don't overpack it, leave room for the air to circulate. the heat from the bottom unit will cause enough condensation to leak down the air vent and the it will refreeze blocking your vent again
hello, my refrigerator got the following problem; it works fine at the freezer but there is no cold in the frig, when i unplug it from the wall connection and after few time connect it again, it start working, after few hours, the refrigerator stop, the freezer is fine and very cool,but the frig is not cool and the refrigerator do not start working again, even after the freezer gets warm.Please i hope you can help me with this problem.
sure is you nailed it, behind the lower crisper drawer is air retunr make sure nothing covering those. removing back panel of freezer will also show problem, id assume iceis building up on either side. remove ive and refrig is restored. make sure doors are sealong sounds like warm aire getting in somehow
Check to see if air is blowing into refrigerator compartment.If no air is blowing.It may be that the settings on your dials are not right.If they are and air is not blowing,your evaporator fan is not working,or may be obstructed.
