Question about Refrigerators
I see you helped someone out in a similar situation. My freezer has not given out completely. The ice trays don't freeze over completely; it's more like slush. Refrigerator side cools fine. Wondering if you might be offer some advice.
Check the condenser coil and clean it if it is dirty. It is located under the machine behind the grill in the front, or in the back of the machine near the compressor depending on the make and model. Also make sure that the condenser cooling fan near the compressor is working. If the refrigerant is not cooled properly in the condenser the system will run hot and not cool properly inside the freezer.
If this does not help your problem, you will probably need a refrigerant technician to check the system. A rule of thumb for refrigerator repair, Freezer working but Fridge warm = airflow blocked inside the unit somewhere, Fridge cooling but Freezer too warm = refrigerant problem. This is usually a major problem that will cost too much to repair than is cost effective . Check your owners manual for warranty information. Look for coverage for the "sealed system". This is usually 5 yrs but can go much longer depending on make and model.
Let me know what you find out. Please post the model and serial numbers if you have any more questions and I will try to help.
