SOURCE: no cold air coming into the fridg

iF YOUR REFRIGERATOR SETTING IS HIGH, YOU NEED TO LOWER THE SETTING IN ORDER TO GET IT COLDER.
If you still have no air flow, there is a fan that blows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. The motor could be burned out.

SOURCE: Long run time between defrost cycles

You have a broken defrost part. Either the heater, t-stat or timer. The longer you let it go without repairing it, the more parts is take out.

SOURCE: I have a monogram ZIS420 the freezer works fine

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. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

SOURCE: Refrigerator and freezer were working properly

Hi,

Let's think this through a bit....
You say it is cooling but it seems too quiet.... is the compressor runing but the condenser fan is not??? that would make it cool but not cold and also make it more quiet...
If both compressor and condenser fan are running... is the evaporator fan... the one inside the freezer running? That also could cause the same problems...

Is the compressor running all of the time??? or is it cycling? if it is cycling then it could be a t-stat or sensor problem....if it is not starting properly it may be a capacitor/relay problem...

These are alll things that you can easily check yourself....

If they all checkout... then the unit may have a small refrigerant leak and just will not cool enough now to catchup from a earm condition....
To check that out you would need a tech. to attach gauges to the system and check the charge...



Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

How to set freezer on LG Bottom Freezer LRFD22850


Hello Fran Miller,

For OPENERS... (my opinion)

I get a little PUSHY about FOOD TEMERATURES...
(stored poorly there's no quicker way of poisoning ones self)...

I strongly recommend getting TAYLOR refrig/freezer
THERMOMETERS (like Amazon... cheap = $6 ea).

Let the refrigerator stabilize EMPTY 24 HOURS
Loaded with food (not recommended: 72 hours).

ADJUSTING CONTROL SETTINGS
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely before adding food. It is best to wait 24 hours before you put food into the refrigerator. The mid-settings indicated in the previous section should be correct for normal household refrigerator usage. The controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.

Panel states HI for Freezer


Hello Sherra, thank you for your post! Typically error code HI indicates that the refrigerator has detected high temperature in freezer. Generally speaking, the recommended factory setting is to be set at 0 for the freezer temperature and 37 for the fresh food temperature. You may try resetting the refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. Wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the appliance on. Set the temperature to a lower setting and please allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize. The refrigerator should then resume to normal operations. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

Too cold


Refrigerators and freezers have a thermostat control inside the refrigerator compartment. It is normally some type of dial with numbers and a graphic indicating warmer or colder.

Place a thermometer inside the cold box. Wait one hour and record the temperature. Adjust the thermostat one or two numbers warmer, then wait 12 hours and record the temperature.

The interior temperature for a refrigerator must be below 40F for food safety. A good range is 35-38F.

Hi, I have a GE side by side GSS23LSTA refrigerator The last few days it has been running constantly. The refrigerator side temperature is fine at 35 degrees, but the freezer temp is staying at around 12...


Hi Mark and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Touch the front of the unit where the doors close and feel if it is very very warm to the touch. If it is very warm to the touch... here are the prime suspects:
1. condenser coils covered in lint
2. condenser fan not running or running slow.

An easy way to determine if there is a condenser fan or coil fan problem is to simply direct a floor fan at the base if the refrigerator. If it cools down substantially in an hour.... there is a problem with the coils being clogged or the condenser fan not running. If that makes no difference... before opening the back of the unit... inspect the back wall of the freezer compartment for any signs of ice build up. If you see ice-build up.... unplug the unit.. remove freezer contents and direct that fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. Then return the unit to normal service.... If the temps come down to normal... for 2 - 3 days then start creeping up again... you have an automatic defrosting problem.

Forgot to mention... make sure the evaporator fan is running at full speed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Fridge runs all the time


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Since you did not provide a model number... this will be a generic / not unit specific answer.

Running all of the time can be caused by several things. Two of the most common reasons is either the condensor fan area in the lower back of the unit has a problem. (lint, fan not running) or the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running. (Fan, ice build up on coils stopping fan)

If the unit is not defrosting properly the evaporator coils freeze up and air can not pass through the coil area. This results in the freezer beening cold and the fresh food compartment to slowly warm up.

Open the doors of your unit and touch the facing area where the door gasket seals. I should be warm to the touch but should NOT be very warm to almost hot. If it is very warm / hot to the touch it will confirm my comments above.

UNPLUG the unit
Clean the condensor area in the bottom of the unit. Use a crevice tool and something NOT sharp, NOT metal and NOT pointed to clean the coils. Old paint brush, big cable tie etc. Make sure the condensor fan is running after you plug the unit back in. A note on powering up any refrigerator.... anytime power is remove you must wait 15 - 20 minutes for the coolant system to stabilze or the compressor will not start.

If you note ice build up in the freezer compartment do a manual defrost by unplugging the unit, placing a fan directed at the freezer compartment (less freezer contents) for just over 2 hours. It makes a water mess so be ready to tend to drips and puddles. After 2 hours and clean up.. return the unit to normal service.

After doing the above the unit should operate normally for at least 2 days. If it continues to operate normally great. If after a few days it starts acting up again suspect that the automatic defrosting function is not working properly and have the defrost system checked.

I noticed an unusual high pitch sound which I traced back to the refrigerator. I then noticed that the front panel lights were flickering on and off and so was the external ice maker lid. I turned the...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. First off the high pitched sound you heard was most likely ice build up on the evaporator so th evaporator fan blades were striking the ice. Now as for your shutting of the unit and staring right back up..... You need to wait 15 - 20 minutes of OFF time when ever there is a power interruption. What is happening now is that the compressor can not restart because the coolant pressures are to high. That 15 - 20 mins of off time will afford that pressure stabilization time.

What you really need to do is remove the freezer contents and place a fan blowing into the freezer compartment to manually defrost the freezer evaporator. (about 2 hours of floor fan time) This should get rid of the high pitched noise. Then.... restart the unit. It should restart.

I suspect that you have an automatic defrost problem is why you had the noise. The manual defrost will only get you 2 - 3 days of normal operation again before it once again starts the icing routine. I want to get this off now to get you started on the manual defrost. I will respond with a 2nd post about the defrost problem.

Your to do list...
1. unplug the unit.
2. Manual defrost with floor fan (2 hours of fan and water mess)
3. Restart the unit
4. Watch for next post about defrost.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I need to learn how to control the tempature setting


Hello,

The temperature controls are located at the top front of the refrigerator or freezer compartments.
The recommended setting should be correct for normal household refrigerator use. The controls are correctly set when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to completely cool before adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has completely cooled, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature controls to a colder-than-recommended setting will not cool the compartments any faster.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked before adjusting the controls.
To turn Off/On:
Style 1 Press the freezer down arrow touch pad until a dash (-) appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays. Neither compartment will cool.
Style 2 Turn the freezer control to the word Off. Neither compartment will cool when the freezer is set to Off.

Energy Saver option (on some models)
The Energy Saver option turns off the heater which helps to reduce moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses more energy when Energy Saver is off.
Press the control to On to save energy when the environment is less humid.
Press the control to Off when the environment is warm and more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.

Adjusting controls
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or freezer compartment.
NOTES:
For Style 1 control, press the up and down arrow touch pads; for Style 2 controls, turn the dial to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control more than one setting at a time.
Wait 24 hours between adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.

Hope this guideline will helpout.....

Kenmore 71182100 refrigerator will not cool after clearing drain


Hey Donna! It normally takes 24 hours for your system to go back into it's "normal" mode after it's been off. I would wait until tomorrow and see if it's cooling down properly before you worry. You may call me if you like after you wait the 24 hour period. Hope this helps you! Ella

My whirlpool Refrigerator motor keeps running


Keep an eye on the running time and temparture of the refrigerator. It will need time to return to normal cooling temps since the defrost and hot temps inside will take maybe a few more hours to reach normal. If not, get back with me and I will go through a step by step process on eliminations,  If so I will need age of fridge, Make and Models Numbers, Thanks Sea Breeze
