Check that the fan motor wiring has not been disturbed. If the freezer fan is not working, the fridge will generally start cooling but due to poor air circulation , it will stay colder at the back but will get warmer at the front hence causing the ice to melt. The usual temp for a food compartment is around 4 degrees. The freezer should be -18 degrees celcius.
If your frig is freezing the food in the chilling compartment as well
as the freezer, it means one thing--its thermostat isn't shutting down
the compressor when the set temperature has been met. You stated that
you had it checked by, I assume, a professional service technician.
Being a retired tech myself, I'm surprised that he didn't check this
out and discuss it with you. Check the temperature in the freezer! If
it is less than 10 degrees F., turn the thermostat to "warmer". If the
temp in the freezer is 10 degrees F., leave it alone and go to the temp
control in the frig, which is a damper that controls cold air flow from
the freezer compartment. Close this damper until your temperature in
the upper part of the refrigerator is 38 to 40 degrees F. If these
efforts don't shut down the compressor and correct your problem, then
the answer is simple. Your thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced.
It isn't expensive, and should cost you less than the labor for a tech
to install it. Good luck!
Hello R, thank you for your question! Generally speaking it
is recommended that the temperature knob is set in the middle for both the
refrigerator and freezer compartment for top mount refrigerators. The
temperature can be adjusted by moving the knob in small increments, allowing
the temperature to stabilize. If you desire a colder temperature, then turn the
knob towards COLDER, or for warmer temperature, turn the knob towards COLD.
Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures in both compartments.
For example, if the refrigerator control is turned to a colder setting, the
freezer control may have to be adjusted to a warmer setting. Turning the
freezer control will only change the freezer temperature. Hope this proves to
Hello there and welcome to fixya this is actually a simple dial this is what they mean C= COLDER THIS IS THE SETTING IF YOU WANT TO LOWER THE TEMPERATURE FROM LETS SAY 38 DEGREES TO 35 DEGREES THEN YOU WOULD TURN THE DIAL A LITTLE BIT TOWARDS THE C N= NORMAL RANGE THIS IS WHERE IT SHOULD BE SET AT AFTER IT IS AT THE TEMPS ARE ALLOWED TO STABILIZE W=WARMER MEANING IF THE REFRIGERATOR IS TOO COLD MOVE IT TOWARDS THE W A FEW NOTCHES THIS WILL INCREASE THE TEMP MAKING IT A LITTLE BIT WARMER INSIDE OF THE REFRIGERATOR OK? HOPE THIS HELPS PLEASE IF THIS HELPS GIVE MEA GOOD RATING I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET BEST REGARDS MIKE
Yor model if the model RS265LABP is very complex. It is very possible that the senser that feels the temperature in the fresh food section is defective. If you would like the manual to put the refrigerator into self diagnostics let me know. The diagnostics test for your model is done at the control panel and will tell you the problem. It will tell you the senser that is not working properly. But an easy fix for most people the test is simple but to go and repair the problem the answer is no easy fix. Sorry for the answer, Sea Breeze
Sounds like the cold air regulator needs adjusting or is blocked. There should be a lever somewhere near the inside top of the refrigerator whcih slides back and forth -- it should be labeled which direction to move it to make the non-frozen compartment colder or warmer.
Also check for frost buildup in the freezer -- if there is buildup, totally defrost -- there may be ice on the regulator which opens and closes based on temperature.
For Olson- most combination units have a diverter that allows you to balance the flow of frigid air between the fridge and freezer.
It may be located in the rear of your unit since the main cold air flow is done there.
Rockitman - not sure which temperature scale you are using - Olson specified 'F' and normal ranges for the refrigerator would be +35 to +45 degrees and freezer temps are recommended as -5 to 0 F.
+10 degrees F wouldn't ensure that food would be very well preserved.
Indeed, foods with any amount of salt in them may age at +10.
