Question about Refrigerators
If you find the unit was not completely cooling inside and sometimes its not workin this could be due to problems with the door. Ideally, the climate inside a refrigerator would never be broken, and the unit could maintain a steady temperature all the time.
Sometimes it happen that the refrigerator gasket (usually a rubber seal around the door) becomes hard or cracked, its seal is broken, and the unit's efficiency drops sharply.
You can test it by placing a dollar bill between the gasket and the door jamb by closing the door. Pull out the $ bill, if it gives some resistance, means the gasket works properly. If the bills comes right out, or fall out, this means that you have a faulty door gasket and you should replace.
Test the door on several locations around the door to check the door for leakage.
Hope this initial info helps.
