Question about Freezers
Freezer is working -22C but fridge is rising to +14C. Had bottom vent panel off and cleared large blockage of dust (3 years worth) after which fridge went back to normal +4/5C, FOR JUST TWO DAYS! Am I mssing something. It was switched off, emptied and cleaned when the dust was removed and allowed to stand before starting. Guess it could be the cooling fan inoperative.
This is a little hard for me to understand being a yank and all. 0C is 32 Fahrenheit, right so 4/5 is about 40? make sure everything is working, compressor , evaporator fan motor (the one inside) condenser fan motor (the one outside) if you have one. You should have an adjustment for freezer and one for the fridge sections, right. The fridge section controls what amount of cold air comes from the freezer compartment. Check the vents inside, make sure they are not blocked and they open and close when you adjust the control. If this all checks good then check the thermostat. If the compressor shuts off prematurely, then a new thermostat may be in order. If you think you can do this, find the thermostat, by-pass the wires. this will make the compressor run continuously. After 20 minutes or so it should make the desired temperature or close to it. None of the fans or compressor should turn off while this is by-passed.
