Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hi, I have an old Crosley Compact refridgerator which is no longer staying cool. I have just replaced the thermostat in an attempt to correct this to no avail. The door seals are fine, the motor sounds as though it is running, however there is no cooling. I have a bad feeling this means that I need to have the fridge re-gassed, but is there anything else that could be wrong?

I have a Crosley refrigerator that is about a year old. We decided to replace it because it wasn't big enough. We moved it to our garage and since we've moved it, it doesn't seem to be chilling the...


If the garage is unheated and the garage temperature is below 50 deg F this is the reason that the freezer is not able to freeze. A refrigerator is designed to work in a heated space. The thermostat is in the refrigerator compartment while the cold evap coils are in the freezer compartment. The fridge thermostat is typically set to around 40 deg F. When the fridge is in a colder environment, the compressor does not need to work that hard to get the refrigerator to temperature. But the freezer on the other hand, will be above freezing.

To fix this, there are garage refrigerator heater kits available, for just this situation. They are placed in the refridgerator compartment to heat the thermostat. This causes the compressor to run longer, and thus maintain the freezer temperature better. You could get one of these heaters or you could put an light bulb in the refrigerator to do the same thing as the heater. Remember to use a regular light bulb, and not a cfl or led light bulb, they won't generate enough heat. Also remove the light bulb or heater in the warm months unless you want a higher energy bill. Hope this helps you.

Hi, My refrigerator isn't getting cold. The freezer is working ok but the bottom refrigerator is set to 7 (coldest) and is barely getting cold. What could this be? Is it expensive to repair?

Crosley Dryer Heats then stops


If im thinking right, this dryer has the element in the top left corner.  This unit has two thermostats, one mounted right above the element, and the other in the lower left front mounted on the fan housing.  The one in the front is called the high limit thermostat, which means when it gets to a preset high temp, it cuts off the system until cooling occurs.  The top thermostat, mounted above the element is the operating thermostat.  It probably is one of the two thermostats.  Its a very good idea to replace not only both of the thermostats, but the fuse as well.  The fuse kit (Maytag Part# LA-1053) comes with a thermostat and 2 fuses, be sure to follow he instructions on how to determine the fuse for electric and gas.  The high limit thermostat (Maytag Part# 53-0771) is an easy replacement.  Something is causing the unit to short cycle.  Sometimes you can hot-wire the operating thermostat (use caution, severe caution if doing this, not recommended if you arent sure whats going on).  By doing this (removing the two wires from the thermostat, taping them together), you can watch and see if the element stays on longer, at least until the high limit switch comes on.  This is really not recommended, if the high limit is out, it will not be good.  Just easier to replace them both.
