No! tap cold control to see if it starts. if the compressor is running and still not cold you either have a system leak or a bad comp.

Need lowest actual temps achievable by various upright freezers.


no rule of thumb
maybe if you got a different thermostat that has a lower setting than standard
however as upright freezers are very bad freezers compared to chest type freezers the lowest reading will be around the -35 degrees C
Why very bad -- every time you open the door you dump 20 degrees out onto the floor and the temp difference is more pronounced than opening the lid of a chest unit which keeps all of the cold in the unit
remember the colder the setting the more the compressor is working

My refrigerator is not working on my samsung tyhe freezer does work perfectly just need help with the product


On some refrigerators there is a chute that lets cold air from the freezer section into the refrigerator side. If this fails to open than the refrigerator will not chill.
Also a refrigerator low on charge will act like yours.

Whirlpool Gold Resource Saver GI6FDRXX- do you really have to manually reset if you lose power?


L oIf you are out of town, the freezer will keep contents cold for 24-48 hours. You can have a neighbor check on it while you are out of town, or you can take the food to a neighbors house, or you don't go at all. Think about this, you can't stop enjoying time away because the freezer may go out. What would you do if the water line broke in the house. The likelihood of that happening is greater than the freezer going out . Go and enjoy yourself. It likely won't happen again.

My chest freezer (10 years old) won't freeze. Motor is running and the red indicator light remains on, but neither the amber or green lights are working.


Hi,

Let's start by diagnosing the freezer;

Fan problem is one of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing, this is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them.

It's also possible that the fan is not running at all. If the fan is burned out or the motor isn't running, cold air can't circulate through the freezer and everything will melt. You can normally hear the fan motor switch on and off from time to time. Listen for it and if you can't hear it coming on for an extended period of time, the motor may need repair or replacement. The wires connecting to the fan may be the problem, preventing the fan from receiving electricity.

Several other problems could be keeping your freezer from freezing:

There could be leaks in one or several of the hoses in the refrigerator, which results in the cold air being lost instead of circulating properly throughout the fridge and freezer.

If you have the freezer so full that the cold air can't circulate, your food will thaw even though the freezer isn't malfunctioning. Always leave some space open in the freezer and try to not store food right up against the cooling vents.

The thermostat might have shorted out, which means the freezer can't accurately determine how cold it is. If this is the case, the refrigerator would probably not be working, either.

If your defrost drain becomes clogged, the water in the line will just refreeze over and over again, which could damage the lines as well as the fan. Always check the drain and make sure no sludge is building up in it if you have a self-defrosting refrigerator.

Always try to keep the freezer door closed for long periods of time. The more the door is opened, the more warm air is let in and cold air is released. If the door is opened frequently, the freezer could be warming faster than the fridge can cool it, which will thaw your food.

Regards.

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.....

I have already described the problem. the freezer temperature keeps going up and down the red light is flashing all the time. As we are not able to get an engineer until next Thursday almost 12 days since...


Set the temp control to max cold. Also, the thermocouple coud be touching something where it shouldn't.

Empty the freezer and reset. Also you may not know this but any lost food stuffs could be covered under the freezers warranty.
