Ok.. none of what you have done involved taking the back off.. if you can get to the compressor itself, you will find it has a dinky 'computer' style fan.. but invariably, some fool of a designer, runs wires very close, and uses low quality cable ties.. which break, causing the wires to spring up and jam the fan.. (especially if it has been moved recently) significantly reducing your compressors ability to chill your appliance.

get some decent cable ties, check and secure rogue wires, and things should sort themselves back to the right temperatures within a few hours.

I have an Admiral top=freezer refrigerator model LTF2112AR. Suddenly, this evening, the motor in the back of the freezer began making continuous noises, it sounds like a grinding noise, but it is still...


Is the compressor making the noise or is it the fan motor that is making the noise. If the compressor then you are looking at over $500 for replacement and you will have to decide if your refrigerator is worth that type of investment.

But if it is the fan motor, then you could replace it yourself. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5170333 Item 11 is the fan motor and you could replace it. The compresson is item 1 and would require a trained person to replace it.

My refrigerator broke i think it is the ice maker unit i would like to find out if it is that or something else


Good day,
An ice maker is an accessory. It would not cause the refrigerator itself to not function.
Here is a list of the major reason a refrigerator will not function.
I don't know what you mean by "broke".

Items that will cause a refrigerator not to cool.....
1. Defective thermostat
2. Defective freezer fan motor
3. Defective defrost timer
4. Defective defrost thermostat
5. Defective defrost main heater.
6. Defective condenser fan motor
6. Defective compressor overload protector
7. Defective compressor start relay
8. Defective compressor start/run capacitor (some models only)
9. Defective compressor
10. Restriction in refrigeration sealed system
11. Loss of refrigerant (leak)
12. Excessively dirty condenser
13. Broken wires, bad wire harness connectors, etc.
14. Defective fan motor switch (some models only)

Temp will only get to 12 degrees at bottom of the fridge at highest setting


either your camper vent door between the refrige and freezer isn't closing or is frozen wide open so as not to shut off cold air inrush from the freezer or the compressor cold control is locked and won't let the compressor cycle on and off as necessary,or a combination of both of these issues
