Question about Refrigerators
Admiral Refrigerator Model NNT219K runs constantly, requires refrig setting of 9, the highest to keep temp at the required 40 degrees. Hear popping sound occasionally. Don't know age as I just purchased house with appliances. Is it worth fixing or do I need to replace?
Not sure how old it may be, but you can check a few things to see if it's defrosting properly. Also clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator to insure good circulation of air over coils. In the picture below you will need to check out three things until we find the problem. Defrost timer, defrost heater, and defrost thermostat. Let me know when your ready, Sea Breeze

Tips for a great answer:
Your Refrig/freezer should be set as follows:
Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.
Then check the door seals around the edges to see if any splits, tears or cracks have messed up the seal. This will cause your compressor to constantly run as it's trying to cool off the warm house is being sucked into the freezer (or Refrig). A sure sign the door seals are damaged is lots of ice in the freezer door area or water pooling in the bottom area of the refrigerator.
Wait about 4 hrs after you readjusted the Refrigerator/Freezer settings so everything settles down. If you still have problems then the coolant may need to be serviced (topped off) or the motor serviced/checked.
Don't procrastinate because a water heater and Refrig/freezer are the 2 largest energy users in your home- they run 24 hrs a day.
Hope this helps...
