Question about Refrigerators
The freezer feeds the refridge side with cold air,when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not you have a bad evap fan motor,touch the back wall of the freezer,is there snow or ice on it,if so you have a defrost problem,you didn't send model number,is it a side by side,if you know where the timer is assuming there is one turn the knob on it slowly until the fridge shuts down,you put it in defrost mode by doing this,take the back wall off of freezer and see if heater came on,if it did you have a bad timer because it won't go into defrost on it's own,if heater doesn't come on you have to check the thermostat and the heater,you can cut the two wires going to the t-stat but cut them close to the t-stat body,now put the wires together and if the heater comes on you have a bad thermostat,the thermostat is cheap enough so it's a good idea to change it anyway,now you have done this without a meter but you should use one,if you have one read out the heater and see if it's bad,most likely it will be if you did everything so far,sometime the glass heaters read good but if you look at it and it's all black change it,if the heater is good you could have a wire problem,you should make sure power is going to the freezer section by checking the t-stat wires,also if there are water droplets on freezer ceiling or on the door the freezer door could of been left open and the air ducts could have froze up,if there is any ice you have to melt it out with hair dryer,you didn't give much to go on so i think i covered it all for you,hope this helps
