Question about Refrigerators
Have an Indesit R45 fridge frrezer. The bottom section which contains the fridge section is not cooling. Thermostat set to maximun.
If the compressor is running and not cooling then there is no refrigerant circulating in the refrigerator or no air moving across the one or both coils. No ice in the freezer section indicates that no cooling is taking place at all, pointing to a lack of refrigerant rather than poor air circulation due to a bad fan or frozen coil.
You can try a manual defrost to ensure it's not a frozen coil by unplugging the unit for several hours with doors open then starting it again. If there is still no cooling occurring you need to check the refrigerant level. If its low you will have to find and seal the leak, pressure test with nitrogen, evacuate and weigh in the correct amount and type of refrigerant listed on the unit.
Hope this helps, needless to say be sure to find a reputable qualified technician to open and service your refrigerant circuit this will make or break your unit.
