My refrigerator works when it feels like it

I cleaned the refrigerator of dust thoroughly, and it started to work. It stopped working this past Wed. I noticed that it was starting to leak. Also it is like the top half of the refrigerator stopped working, and the lower half of the refrigerator was working (barely), now today it started back making Ice. Should i get another refrigerator?

Built under fridge not getting cold

I assume you have a built in refrigerator that is not getting cold.
The most common issue with these units is a build up of dust and gunk on the evaporator coils.
To fix this you need to remove the unit and clean the coils and compressor area thoroughly. Usually a good brushing off with a SOFT BRISTLED brush will get the loose dust off of it. You may need to vacuum the area out and use a mild solution of soap and water to get it really clean. Plug it in after it is clean and dry and it should start cooling again. If that works you should do it yearly to insure good operation. This is one of the main reasons refrigerators and room AC units go bad. The cleaner you keep them the better they operate

Kitchenaid KSRL25FRBL00 all lights are staying on but the refrigeration keeps shutting off

make sure that you removed all the dust - check thoroughly with a flashlight to make sure. It sounds as the unit is overheating - not drawing enough air through the condenser. Unplug the unit and clean it thoroughly and give it another shot - make sure enough air can be drown in. If this does not work for you might want to call a repair company.

The freezer/refrigerator stopped working. All the ice was melting in the freezer. I cleaned up all the water. It sounds like it is humming and cooling; but it doesn't feel very cool in the fridge, meat...


Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Top of freezer and refrigerator stops working for a couple of days then starts working again

Clean all the dust and lint accumulation from under the unit, remove the condensation collection pan and clean it, and make sure the bottom fan is running.

I can't emphasize strongly enough how much of an enemy the accumulation of dirt and dust under a refrigerator can be its worst enemy. It can make the refrigerator exhibit symptoms of much more serious problems. Sometimes a good cleaning can have it operating like new with no real 'repairs' whatsoever.

You may end up having to call a repairman, but hey... This is a 'free' fix and if doesn't work, all you're out is your time. And you'd be surprised at the multitude of problems the accumulation of dirt and lint (or non-working fans) can cause.

Good Luck. Hope this helps.

I have a Samsund SRS579NP both fridge and freezer not getting to right temperature. I don't think that the temp gauge is working properly. the fridge says that it is -1 degree but its deffiantly not that...

My first thought is dirty condenser coils (the coils on the bottom of the refrigerator behind the kick panel). You wouldn't believe how much impact a large accumulation of dust and lint on these coils can have on the efficiency and operation of a refrigerator. It's also one of the least expensive 'fixes'... It's FREE.

Remove the front kick panel and, with a flashlight, look at the horizontal coils under the refrigerator. If they are covered with a thick layer of dust and lint, you can almost be assured that this is the problem. They make tapered brushes specifically made for cleaning these coils, but any long slim brush that you can get between them to clean off the accumulation of dirt is better than nothing.

You can do a more thorough job if you pull the refrigerator out and remove the back panel to clean from both front and back. Be sure to unplug the refrigerator while you do this to avoid the condenser fan from coming on while you're working. It's always advisable to use a vacuum attachment to actually REMOVE the dust and lint from the bottom of the refrigerator rather than leaving it under there to be drawn back up into the coils very quickly after you've cleaned them off.

There's no specific definition of 'clean' coils, but my advise is to clean them as thoroughly as you can and be sure to clean off the small condenser fan as well.

Put the panels back in place and plug the refrigerator back in. This should do the trick. Dirty condensers can make you think your whole refrigerator just when ka-pooey when this easy (although somewhat dirty) task can make it run like new again.

Hope this helps.

You are probably frozen up which causes the fan to freeze up. Thoroughly defrost the unit...if necessary, stop it for a day or more until all the ice melts. Restart. Cut down on 'window shopping', storing uncovered liquids. Check the door gaskets, clean if necessary or replace.
