The problem for Butter warmer not working was as I suspected the internal workings of the regulator slider that adjusts the temp for the butter warmer it's self. The regulator intenals get a sort of burnt ember on them from something similar to a couple of positive and negative wires connecting causing a sorf of short. I have an electrical tech nearby who opened up the regulator to find and use a small wire brush and scraper removed the burnt on gum. It returned the warmer to working immediately upon re-installation and is still several years later, working a treat.
I am disappointed to note that in stores we have checked to upgrade our fridge all say that no models have the butter warmer anymore. Hence we are holding on to our fridge.

My freezer seems to work fine on the AC but the fridge will not get cool any idea what the problem might be Dometic model RM2652


Move your temperature control (slider) down. If it is close to the freezer it does not get the signal that it is warmer.

I have the samsung upside down fridge 590 litre freezer is great but the fridge is showing it is set on 3 degrees but inside the fridge it is 7


For starters, Get a second thermometer to check against those two.
Also leave the freezer closed to several hours and see what the difference is in temp.
I would expect that the inside temp would mostly be warmer than the 'set' temp., as the latter is always trying to catch up every time the freezer door opens.

Fridge not cooling, Freezer is working (upside down fridge/freezer)


We experienced a smilar problem with your Fisher & Paykle fridge/freezer.
The fan that sends cold air to the Fridge section of the appliance didnt appear to be working leaving the Fridge poorly cooled.
I suggest the first step is to turn the fridge off and leave it to totally defrost.
Build up in ice in the freezer section seemed to have an impact on the proper operation of the fan which seems to relie on a thermostat for its operation.
Having defrosted and cleaned the fridge the problem was solved.
The fans have a delay before switching on after the door is closed. Place a magnet over the door sensor switch and wait to see if the fan works.
The problem could be that the unit has iced over itself over a period of time and defrosting it could solve the problem.

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

Fridge and freezer too warm after cleaning


I guess by now you have resolved this.. If you need help please alert me..

If this is unresolved, can you tell me if the compressor runs? According to the Jen air manual I downloaded, you shud be able hear a number of sounds from the fridge, at different stages eg defrost, cooling etc. Obviously you checked the temperature controlls? Door seals Ok? Power,is the light on.. Even if there appears to be power, pls change the power outlet and run the fridge from a different source. Pls advise if you still have problems. Rgds,

Very hot compresser upside down fidge


Is there a little fan back there with the compressor? if so is it turning? also check the outside coil, it may be covered with dust & crap. Sometimes that is all thet it takes. A good cleaning.
