Question about Refrigerators
I have the above 106.7611400 (side by side), the freezer freezes up after 2-3 days and the fridge then doesn't get any cool air and the freezer food starts to thaw. I have to shut it off every 3-4 days, let the coils thaw along with all the food, and ruined food in the fridge for over 24 hrs then start it back up to work again, but only for 2-3 days... I am getting frustrated. What can I do?
You have a defrost problem. You need to determine which one of the parts is faulty. The defrost timer on that model should be behind the kick plate in the center front underneath. If you turn the little knob by hand you will hear a load click when it gets to the defrost point and the unit should shut off. Check in the bottom of the freezer to listen for water sizzleing or for water running down. If it is the timer is not advancing and needs replaced. If not you will have to take the back off the inside of the freezer to see if it is the heater or the defrost thermostat. Unhook power before taking panel off or replacing any parts.
