Question about Refrigerators
Refrigerator area only cools to 51 degrees. Freezer freezes and makes ice. We pulled the plug on refrig and have cleaned the coils, plugged it back in and let it run. It is still at 51 degrees and is set on setting 9, which is the highest. It runs constantly but is still at 51 degrees.
First of all switch off your refigerator for about 8 hours.. than again switch it on. now place your thermostart at 4. now let it run for about 2 hrs...... after that also if your refrigerator won't decrease its temperature than please replace the blower inside it........... or else contact your service authority.
have a nice day :-)

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...
