Question about Crosley CRS40 Manual Defrost Compact Refrigerators in White on White
Hi, I have a 19 cu ft white Crosley Refrig (freezer section on top). I bought it "used" in August 2003, Model #CT19G6W. It has worked FINE until the other day.
First I noticed a loud "CLICKING" sound which would occur about once every half-hour or every hour. At first I didn't know where the noise was coming from in my apt., but after about six hours I realized it had to be the Frig because there was now water on the floor at the bottom of the front of the Frig (and there were some drips coming off the top/freezer door and dripping into the Refrigerator section).
So I put a towel down and checked the frig every few hours and it was getting less and less cool. Went to bed and the next morning it was totally WARM, no more cool at all inside the frig. So I unplugged it since I didn't have a clue what to do with it (of course I had already taken all the food out).
I have looked at several "Refrigerator Troubleshooting" websites, but so far NONE of them describe a CLICKING SOUND (they mention rattles and hums and whizzes and groaning sounds, etc., but nowhere have I found anyone mention a distinct CLICKING sound, as that is exactly what it was, a loud CLICKING sound every half-hour or so, for about 12 hours and then, voila, the frig was totally warm, no longer cooling, and not even running, no sound at all, no fans, no motors, no more Clicking, etc.).
Thanks for any insight! ;-)
The answer here is simple. You must keep the refridgerator plugged in and allow it to get hotter. You can then store foods that like to be warm in there, like macaroni and cheese, brocolli and cheese, pizza, hamburgers with cheese, my Balzac, and fondue.
