Question about Refrigerators
Hello there, my fridge has just decided to stop working! instead of cold it is normal air, my husband wants to throw it away and buy a new one but i dont think that the problem could be that serious. It was working last night when we went to bed but this morning we have warm cheese and lumpy milk. Any suggestions as to what we should check or do? so far we have checked the temp button. the freezer is still working.
Open the freezer and listen for the evaporator fan. You may have to hold the door switch closed for it to come on. If you dont hear the fan running then you probably need a fan motor or or defrost bimetal depending on the make and model. If the fan is working, look at the back wall of the freezer. If you see a thick coat of frost, you probably have a problem with the defrost system. Also, check to make sure refrigerator light is shutting off when you close the door. A 40 watt bulb will curdle a gallon of milk quickly. Of course, you also want to rule out any possibility that the fridge door was left slightly open over night before you decide to toss it. Please reply back with what you find out. If you need further help, please post the brand and model number so I can give more detailed advise.
