Fridge won't Work! Help Please!

The refrigeratior is not cold enough. It is on the recommended setting. It's been a few days. My guess is that we've been opening it and leaving it open while cleaning it too much. Please help because i can't afford professional help. Thank you!

Why doesnt the refrigerator and freezer not get cold enough?


You need to check a few things -
1. settings for the temperature are not set too low. Not cold enough.
2 there is no leakage through the door seals.
3. there is not too much ice formed inside the freezer walls. Needs defrost.
4. the fridge is not overloaded with stuff - not enough capacity to cool things.
5. Not enough free space behind the fridge to allow air movement for coils to cool
Please provide more details of the problem if above not helping. For example model number, is the problem happening both in freezer and refrigerator settings. Get a fridge thermometer and monitor temperature in both sections. should be 4 deg C in fridge and -18 deg C in freezer after stable operation.

Why are only drawers in fridge cold & not making ice?


Contact a professional. Sounds like either your damper door is not operating correctly and not letting enough cool air from the freezer enter, or there is an air leak that is making ice form .

Fridge leaks on the inside


The drain line in the freezer is blocked. It drains the water away after the defrost cycle. You will need to post your model number for me to be of more help.

My freezer is not getting ice


If the freezer is not cold enough you may have a compressor problem. First totally defrost the fridge. then plug the fridge back in and check that the fan in the bottom that cools the compressor is working. the cold control can fail so turn the cold control to the highest setting and note if the compressor stops running before the freezer starts making ice. If the fridge just runs and runs and does not get cold enough to make ice you have a somewhat serious problem. the compressor can be replaced but it is expensive and you might be better off to get a different unit (new or used) that will work correctly. Most used appliance stores will have something that will work well and won't cost that much.

Hi.. feel the dividing rdge between fridge and freezer.. is it warm?.. chances are that the little fan at the back of the fridge freezer that helps cool the compressor, has snagged own it's own wire... it's a weak fan, like you get in a computer, but it does a lot of work.. without it, the coolent does not do it's job, which results in your device not cooling things properly

Refrigerator not getting cold even when set at lowest point.


Not enough information. But here is something which may help you diagnose the cause. I assume that you have a frost free fridge freezer. That there is a fan in the freezer which blows cold air down into the fridge.That the freezer is still cold. You can hear the fan cutting in and out.
Try opening the Fridge door and locate the little plunger switch which is pushed shut by closing the door (like the switch on you car door that turns the interior light on and off).
Push it in manually with your hand. (the fan needs to be running. The fan should blow cold air into the fridge. There will be a panel with vents, probably on the back off the fridge. Cold air should be coming from this. When working properly the temperature sensor in the fridge will control a flap like valve to allow or disallow entry of cold air from the freezer to the fridge.This controls the temperature of the fridge. If the flap is jammed shut no cold air can enter the fridge. Likely cause is ice build up, most likly in the back of the freezer blocking the path of the cold air. I had this problem on an old fridge of mine.I think that it is caused by the heat cycle not kicking in correctly to defrost the heat exchanger . I used to DISCONNECT THE FRIDGE FROM THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY dismantle the inner panels of the freezer. And pour water over the ice monster blocking up the back of the freezer. Not a good solution i grant you. But it would work for a week or two. Then i would have to do it again. later i found a small panel on the back (outside) of the fridge with wiring and stuff inside it. There was a rotatable knob which clicked as you turned it. in one position you could hear it make the heat cycle kick in manually. I spent about 6 months doing this every few days whilst saving for a new fridge. It worked. But there is a RISK OF ELECTROCUTION .
Sorry i cant fix your problem . But this might be of some help to diagnose it. If you are not sure i wouldn't recommend fishing round in the electrics. I have had quite a few electric shocks doing stuff like this because i am not as careful as i should be, and i am not a qualified electrician. It never hurts me much. But some people will die quite easily from mains voltage. BE CAREFUL!!
