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.

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...

Freezer turns of in cold weather


Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

How do you defrost rfa52 polar white fridge freezer?


Switch off the power and place all the contents in a thick bage inside a large cardboard box, to keep it cold. Place a tray to catch the thawed ice in the apropriate place and wait.
When defrosted, wipe the surfaces down with an antibacterial liquid/spray of food grade quality and switch the power back on. Replace the frozen food, after checking the date codes, in the freezer

Freezer has defrosted itself, refrigerator not holding cold


The clicking sound is from a bad start relay on the compressor or a bad compressor.
Replace the start relay. It is relatively inexpensive.
If that does not correct the problem the compressor will have to be replaced.

The easiest way to thaw a freezer is to take a shop vac and turn the air around and blow it on the coils to thaw out the ice. go ahead and make sure t=hat its cpompletely thawed out them turn back on and check the air flow afrom the fan after its ran a little bit. Don't rae until your problem has been resolved then rate the best solutions please. Thanks for using FixYa.

Refr/freezer alternately gets too cold and thaws


My first thought: defrost timer which shuts off the compressor and turns on a heater in the freezer is sluggish.  I'd change it out.
