Will not cool

It will not cool at all. I came home after a vacation to find the fridge at room temp. I unplugged it for a while and it will not do anything when I plug it back in. The LG compressor in the back will get really hot when I plug it in now. Anyone know what the deal is? Thanls

Re: Will not cool

If the compressor is getting really hot it's more than likely SHOT.
There is a small possibility you have a bad overload/start relay.
But compressors do not like getting hot.

Admrial LTF2112AR fridge not cooling

How to check everything
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. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Not cooling enough

I had the same problem and I discovered it was the defrost element that was shorted out which keeps the ice from building up located behind the back freezer wall.

Norcold fridge not cool enough

Yes very likely the cooling unit has stopped working. You need to do a bypass test by unplugging the thermistor on the inside of fridge. It will be attached to the fins. Give it 6 hours or so and check your temps. If they are the same the cooling unit is bad. If the temp goes down the thermistor or circuit board is bad. If you need more assistance feel free to call.

Fridge not cool, freezer fridge temp

The most likely fault is a problem with the defrost cycle. The most likely is the defrost heater which should be a solid bar which is located directly underneath the coil. If you are capable then you can generally unplug the connectors for the heater and check that you have a resistance across the ends if the heater is faulty it will be open circuit. If it is not open circuit then it could be the defrost sensor or defrost timer at fault. You can also generally tell if the heater is warped or cracked. Hope this is of some help.
