Unplug it, and don't turn it on anymore. Doing so can damage the compressor, and I hope it is not damaged already. This will cause the compressor to overheat, and fail. You can buy line tap, and then buy one of those 134 adapter. Check to see if it has freon in there. Refrigarators today uses 134 and anyone can buy it. Locate the low side which is the larger tube coming out of the compressor. Screw in the tap, which should poke a hole on the line. Dont worry a tap do not leak, and I have used them many times.Once in place push the valve if there is any freon in there. if there is none then there is a leak somewhere. Find the leak and repair it first. You can buy a cheap propane torch for about 12-20 bucks, along with flux, and some solder. make sure you clean the copper to be repaired first with a wire brush. Once the leak is repaired, you are now ready to put the 134 refrigerant. An average refrigarator usually take a little more the half a can of 134. Putting too much will not make it cold enough. Well good luck hope this hepls.

Could be that your self defrost mechanism is not working and unit is freezing up and not cooling. Till fixed just defrost overnight and turn on next day. It will run fine for a few days till it freezes up again.

Probably need to replace open heater element. Go to sears web site for part number and then purchase it for less money on ebay.

LG elecrocool refridgerator not cooling


it is mos tlikely frosting up on the evaporator, this shows up as frost on the back wall of the freezer that means its not self defrosting, check the defrost system, defrost termination therms can go bad, and need replacement, defrost elements can short out, defrost board if it has one may be bad.

My small refridgerator Model MCBR445B1 just stopped cooling


You hire a professional to check it for you but I am quite sure it's the freon gas that has run out. Just like my refrigerator. One day, it just stopped cooling although it still powers on until now. You can have your freon replaced by the manufacturer or through an authorized refrigeration and conditioning shop in your area.

GE regrigerator not cooling or freezing


first defrost it by turning it off for 1\2 to 1 full day,put towels on the floor to catch the water,when a refridgerator gets frosted up it cant circulate the cold air,and if its one with the freezer on top then the cold air cant blow down into the refridgerator,check inside the refridgerator at the top where the thermostat cover is there will be a vent hole,it could have ice built up so much that its totally blocking the air flow.This usually happens when hot food is put in the refridgerator and causes steam,or the refridgerator runs too much caused by bad door seals,or the cooling fins on the back or bottom underneath plugged with dust and the freon gets too hot causing condensation inside the freezer which causes it to frost up,a plugged drain hole will back up water and freeze,the fan in the freezer may have stopped working,which is about a $60.00 part,and finally a bad defrost element (about a $40.00 part)which is a glass tube inside the freezer with a coiled up wire inside it that heats up at certain times to defrost any ice build up,(which is the last thing to check)

No cooling in refridgerator


is freezer cooling?
a possible cause is build up of ice on the evaporator. take off the back panel in the freezer and check. also check the fan is working. if there is excessive ice build up, this can mean that the defrost system is not working. in any case, if there is ice build-up, carefully melt the ice off with a hairdryer

I have a ed5fhgxkq00 side by side Whirlpool refridgerator that stopped cooling. It worked fine up until last night when we noticed that the ice was melting. Now it gets a little cool but not cool enough....


If the compressor has a fan next to it, be sure it is running. if the relay is clicking every few minutes it may need to be replced. contact local parts distributor.
