You can try several things. Look at the temperature control knobs and see what the settings are. Click them up one, no more than two. Check the seal of the door is it black, or discolored. If so clean it good with a bleach water combo. Unplug your unit. Leave it off for about 5 minutes. This will give the compressor time to cool. Plug it back in and listen to the compressor. How long does it take for it to come on. Is it hot to the touch. Be careful when touching the compressor as it may be very hot. If it is hot to the touch you could be low on freon, or it could be going bad. Check for built up dust and vacuum these areas. It has to breathe. Hope this helps, how old is the unit. It might be time to replace it. Check out craigslist as you can find some great deals.

THE REFIGERATOR SIDE OF MY 632 IS NOT GETTING COLD


More than likely you need to "dust off" (with a vacuum brush tip) the coils in then upper compartment. Remove the upper cover and vacuum off the face of the coils located on the right side. This needs to be done every six months.
