Why are my fridge and freezer to warm?


Sounds to me like your freon is low. That is the gas fridges use to cool things down.
I may be wrong but I would get a repair man to check the freon pressure first.. Low freon is caused by a small leak in one of the lines or in the compressor its self. I had an old fridge and the freon went low just over time.and had to be topped up.

Just by cleaning the coils and the keeping it shutdown should not have any effect on the freon in the compressor. It is only used to cool down the coils so that the air blows over them is also made cold. Please keep it running for a while and check if the problem persists. There is a chance that the air is first cooling down the ducts in the refrigerator and then afterwards the whole inner body. That can warm down the air a bit. If the problem persists, this can be a freon issue.

I woke up this morning to the fridge not working. Everything in the freezer is starting to thaw. Checked the outlet and it still works, what could be the problem?


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
If it's iced up really heavy you have an auto defrost problem. Melt the ice with a hairdryer and check the defrost system.

If the freezer compartment is blowing warm air, then you either have a problem with the compressor (or a freon leak) or a problem with the fan located next to the compressor (at the back of the machine).

Attached to the compressor is an overload protector, which is most likely what broke, but if you are covered by a service contract your best bet is to wait it out and let them fix it. One thing that might have caused the overload to break is too much dust on the condenser (the radiator looking thing underneath the machine, accessible from the front).

Freezer Working Intermittently; Fridge not as cold as should be


the model number you sent didn't come up,i sounds like you could have an inefficient compressor or a freon leak.when you checked the compressor was the condenser fan motor running?this is what keeps the compressor cool also clean the condenser coil too.another thing is that if you have a timer on your machine it could be sticking,if you send the model number i can tell you where it is,also if you remove the back inside wall of the freezer,look at the evaporator coil,the frost on the coil should be the same over the whole coil,if it isn't you have a sealed system problem and will need to replace the machine.if things are cold in freezer but not cold enough this is what it sounds like,do this,open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not the evap fan motor is bad or it could be in defrost,if you don't hear the fan blowing wait around a half hour and check it again, it could be in defrost mode so the fan won't turn on until it comes out of defrost,also like i said make sure the condenser fan motor is blowing and the condenser coil is clean,if everything checks good and the freezer is cold but not cold enough and the best thing to check is the ice cream get a new machine,you have a sealed system problem.let me know what you find and good luck
