Are all the controls set right someone may have turned them
Is the compressor running and is one line real hot and the other cool
if not could be compressor. You should have two fans compressor and evaportor are they both working?
Is there ice build up in the evaporator and can't get the air through it
if so defrost could be bad not defrosting You could defrost it manualy
and see if it works
Could it be in defrost when you were checking it or is the defrost staying on all time. Check the evaporator, is it heating up. If so get it off and see if it works ok Hope you find somthing in here that helps

Fridge not freezing meats


I was writing a big note here before then hit the wrong button, it was just a bunch of jargon anyway. Yes it is the condenser fan motor causing your problems. Doesn't cool the refrigerant properly than nothing works. I would change the fan before it causes any damage to the compressor.

Fridge too cold. Cleaned the condensor coils, but its still too cold.


Hello,
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
I hope this will help to solve the problem....

Model#1051 small dorm size...doesn't matter where i set thermostat..it sill freezes everything,,,suggestions?


Repace thermostat. You didn't tell us that it runs ALL the time. It does. You don't have to tell me, I know it does. The first thing the power does is go thru the thermostat and its job is to turn the power off to the pump when it gets cold enough. If it gets cold and freezes everything then everything else is working right. There is no fixing the old thermostat either. That little tube that looks like a heavy bare wire ending next to the freezer coil has a little "freon" in it that expandes and contrectes with temp. change and the change in pressure is what ativates the thermostat. Chances are the "freon" leaked out.
Note, this is not the same "freon" that is pumped around the fridge to cool things. This is sealed in the thermostat and tube only.

Check the cold control, and also the air deflector. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control.

Refrigerator won't get cold


You likely have a defrost cycle failure. The freezer's cooling coils need to be frosty and cold so the air that the fan pulls over them can cool the fridge section. If the defrost cycle fails, the coils freeze up to a block of ice and air flow suffers (fridge is about 55 degrees F). The freezer stays cold only because there's a block of ice in there now... sometimes that cold "sinks" to the bottom and only the food at the bottom stays frozen (and can even freeze food at the bottom of the fridge compartment while the rest is warm). To be sure, you'll need to take the rear interior panel off the freezer back wall and check the coils to see if they are frozen solid. If they are then there's a defrost cycle failure. If they are showing a nice white frosty pattern evenly all over the coils then that's normal and maybe the evap fan (right above the coils) is not blowing air up properly or is not working at all. That fan should run if the compressor is running, etc. the only time it doesn't run is during an actual defrost cycle. Once you find out what condition the coils are in it should be simple to direct you further on the problem.
