Question about Goldstar Refrigerators

Refridg. compartment warm

I have a much loved GR 3533 CRI
Yesterday made up several large-quantity dishes for the week, and put them in the refrigerator compartment probably still too warm. This morning the compartment is warm. My fault. I’ve taken the food out. Should I turn off the motor a while and let it recuperate. Or put it on max. Or is it dead. Or other. Any help much appreciated.

You may have a problem other than in the refrigerator compartment.
I am in the U.S.A. and am unfamiliar with some of the brands posted on this forum. However designs of refrigerator freezer combinations have a basic relationship. Check your freezer compartment for a frost sign on the back wall. If frost is present on the back wall a defrost problem is evident. This type of problem can be related to a defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost thermostat. If you can located the defrost timer and rotate the dial clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one click. This will put the refrigerator into the defrost mode. After a time event of 18-22 minutes the compressor should restart. After 25 minute if it does not start advance the timer dial SLOWLY one more time and the compressor should start.

Frost buildup

POSSIBLY faulty door seals allowing outside moisture to enter freezer compartment. This is especially prevalent in older units and/or tropical climate zones [ie high humidity] ... OR if freezer is OVER-LOADED with food items !!!
If you are putting in large quantities of fresh produce to be frozen it is quite often better to PRE-COOL all the items in your refrigerator PRIOR to placing in your FREEZER as they will usually have a high moisture content which will cause frost build-up in your freezer ...

My dishwasher is flashing for salt it is a Miele and i want to know what kind of salt to put in and how much - i have the plastic bowl thing to put it in the dishwasher

Use the salt supplied by your service provider. Or try in a super market.Ask for dish washer salt.
If a plastic funnel is supplied use it to fill the salt compartment. The quantity as it holds.

Do not fill kitchen salt used for food!

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, leaving a lot of grease behind and dishes are not drying

Hello- This unit has a filter that will become blocked by large quantities of grease over time. The accumulator screen clogs and water won't flow. If grease has been building up for awhile this screen will have to be replaced. -- Rinse most of grease off dishes before putting in dishwasher--. Try running water at sink until hot, and run dishwasher with no dishes and a little extra soap. Let me know if this info helps- Have more if needed.- Thanks- Ed

We want to know which compartment to put the detergent in for the quick wash? the large one with the cover or the smaller one with the vent slits?

The large one with the cover can be used with a quick wash. The quick wash just cuts out one of the beginning rinse cycles but should still be opening the detergent door. The one with the slits in it is if you have particularly dirty dishes or ones that have had dirt sitting on them for a while and the detergent will go into very first rinse cycle and help to free the dirt or food. The only time the door should not open is in a rinse only cycle if your d/w has this cycle. Thanks for rating me after you read this.

Error message ''condensation operation failed''

1. There is a silver condensation detector in the tape compartment, rear left corner. You can try cleaning this with isopropyl alcohol. I have tried this, and it did not resolve the problem.
2. You can open the camera and unplug the power connector. This will reset the camera, and will resolve the issue for several months. I suggest looking further on this site, where there are instructions for which screws to remove to do this. I have done this, and it has resolved the issued for varying lenghts of time on my GR D30U.

Have Maytag side by side refrig. mod. MSD2556AE and after running several weeks the food compartment starts warming up but freezer stays cold. Can turn frig. off overnite and will work ok for several more...

the notorious Adaptive defrost did it again (lol) verify the condition of the heater putting a voltmeter on the "beeping" feature if it beeps its good.

Replace the Adaptive Defrost board and defrost thermostat and should work like a charm
