Question about Refrigerators
My refrig was loud and recycling too much. Was having trouble with freezing in the main compartment. I tried adjusting the temperature. But when the freezing in the main compartment stopped, the freezer coompartment wasn't quite cold enough.
I cleaned the condenser, which I had never done before. Now, it is much quieter but it doesn't shut itself off except at very low settings.
What is going on?
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it. There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp ..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
