Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

### What is the cu ft of Model FRT21IL4FW3 Freezer space?

Easiest solution is to measure the inside dimensions in inches, tall, width and depth. Then multiply the three dimensions t x w x d = cubic inches. To get cubic feet then divide the above answer by 1728 and the result is cubic feet..

For instance if the fridge is 60 inches tall x 24 inches wide x 18 inches deep; the answer is 60 x 24 x 18 = 25,929 cubic inches... 25,920 divided by 1728 = 15 cubic feet.

### I have a Magic Chef Refrigerator Freezer Model MCBR1020W. It is a small 10 cubic capacity for my basement. It is about 18 months old. The freezer works great but the refrigerator compartment never gets to...

Is this a two door refrigerator?
If it is then their is an air duct that allows some air from the freezer to cool the fridge section.
Three things to look for;
Is the air duct blocked
Is the fan blowing air
is the freezer coil frozen over.
Try manually defrosting the fridge. If that helps then you have an auto defrost problem. A technician can help you there

### Whirlpool 6 sense model WSC5513- A+ X side by side, without ice or water dispenser. Refrigerator part not cooling properly. Temperature setting is -18 degrees Celsius for the freezer and 2 degrees...

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.
