Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.


If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…


Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Side by side Whirlpool in insulated cold garage ompressor seems to be running all the time, freezer not working fridge is warm


Sounds like low on freon. Some refrig. has a charging port. It may even say on name tag what type of freon to use. You need a guage to check if unit is low on freon.

No ice/whole unit not cold enough


Yes, it is possibly some freon was lost but I doubt it. It is very possible a fan froze when it was moved. I would assume when the fan motor got cold the lubrication got stiff and will not let it start again. You should also check the condenser fan first and be sure the coils are clean. If that is all clean and working, check the fans in the refrigerator and freezer. The freon thing would be the last thing to check and you will probably need a person licensed to make that check.
Good Luck,

Try defrosting the unit.. May be ice buildup in vents between freezer and fridge. Freon is in sealed unit. Should not have leaked out..
