Question about Refrigerators
My freezer was not cooling properly and ice cream was soft. We had a Refrigerant leak. More refrigerant/Freon was added to fridge and now it is super cold.

If compressor runs all the time and it doesn't get cold , either low on refrigerant or compressor weak.

the common miss conception is that your fridge isnt cooling when it is cooling sooo well it is frosted up your evaporator that eventually acts like an insulator and will not absorb any more heat out of the fridge, thats why the beer is warm and the milk sour.. how the manufacturors satop this from happening is defrost mode as im sure you know about but is one of the components fail in that system your evaporator will not "self clean" and eventually warm the fridge.. if you cant fix the problem or are waiting for parts unplug the fridge over night with the door open and you should fix the problem temperarily. heater, timer, and the dtt (defrost thermostat) are the most likely causes. that is if it is an older style fridge that doesnt have an electronic board built into it.. happy cooling sincerely VeeDubb anymore questions if that doesnt help Ticoff1867@hotmail.com

no fan then no cooling!
try to localise the problem by removing the fan and powering it up direct from mains. if it works then problem is not with fan

Step 1: If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.
Step 2: If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.
Step 3: If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.
Step 4: If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.
