Question about Refrigerators
I have a kitchenaid side by side refrigerator (frost free) 4-5 years old, no longer under warranty. About a week or so ago the freezer stopped freezing, the refigerator seemed fine. So I turned the freezer temp control up a notch and when everything was frozen again I turned temp back down to normal. It was fine for another 3-4 days then it happened again. I pulled the grate off bottom and cleaned off the coils they had quite a bit of dust on them. Plugged it back in at normal temp and still wasn't freezing so I turned up a notch again then it froze but only lasted a day. This morning it was defrosting again. Do you have any idea what would cause this.
It is really hard to do theese things over the internet so bear with me from what your describing id say change the freezer thermostat the freezer does all the cooling it runs the compressor the fridge control controls a door that lets cold air in from the freezer now thermostats have two settings built in one is called the cut in or turn the compressor on the second is called cut out temp turn the compressor off ok so lets say your cut out is good you reset the control higher it freezes and cuts out at the right temp but your cut in is bad so the temp rises and rises but the thermostat doesn't cut the compressor back on so based on what your saying id say replace the freezer cold control unless you have a lot of frost built up on the back wall of the freezer which would indicate a defrost problem hope i explained this good also check to make sure the compressor fan is running and you hear a fan in the freezer running
