SOURCE: fridge broken, freezer is temp. that fridge should

Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . ( If you notice your compressor is not running before unplugguing the blue plug , then jump wire1 to wire3 to see if the compressor runs . If so , then the main control board is bad . Plug the refrig back in to see if compressor starts with the jumper wire in place , ) . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10101 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature .

How do you "warm" a Midea fridge do you turn dial higher (5) or lower (1)?


The higher the number, the colder the fridge gets. Is it too cold in the fridge?

I have a ocean fridge freezer & want to know if No.1 is the coldest setting or No. 9 is the coldest on the temperature dial


9 is usually the coldest setting. Turn the dial all the way. The side with the click is off. If it does not click, then turn it all the way and listen for the compressor to turn on or off. What I just told you applies only to the freezer. The numbers on the dial for the fridge should be the same.

Freezer is working fine but the Fridge part is not


i take it the unit is frost free you need to replace the defrost element in the freezer whats happening is your freezer sends cold air through small holes to the fridge compartment but when the freezer cant self defrost those holes freeze over thus no cold air into the fridge compartment get a tech in to check the element shoulnt cost more than $ 80.00

Freezer fine refrigerator is not as cold as it should be. dial is set to coldest position. butter is soft and milk is on verge of spoiling


do you notice ice built up on freezer section back wall if so you have a defrost problem if not you have a freon problem also make sure the freezer setting is not on its coldest setting this actually controls the air flow to the fridge section both freezer and fridge need to be set about half way

Dial goes from 1 to 5 in fridge, what is correct setting


1 is warmest and 5 is coldest. set to 3 and just see if that gives you a reasonable temperature. fridge temp should be about +4degC and freezer temp about -18degC

Fridge frozen solid


Usually on refrigerators, the highest setting makes it coldest and the lower settings are warmer, relatively. "6" on my dial says "coldest" - Perhaps this is the case for yours? Let's hope it is that simple
