Re: Frig not cold
If nothing i running and the light is on then this means that the thermostat is usually the problem. This is a easy fix and you dont need to buy a new refrigerator. However if you do be careful what you buy, Not allrefrigerators can be built in to a cabinet. Thermostat normally cost between 25 to 60 dollars depending on the model you have.

You said the compressor is running? Right? Check for the temperature of the suction line to compressor (line going to compressor from the evaporator coil) - it should be cold. The other line going to evaporator should be nice and hot.
If suction line is not cold, then the unit may have a gas leak and needs to be regassed. However, you need to first locate the leak, repair it, evacuate the system to make sure the fix is good and then refill with appropriate refrigerant. U will need to get a shrader valve to tap into the suction line, a leak detector, leak repair tools, vacuum pump, and refrigerant with manifold.
The problem is most likely the=> 241739710 Temperature Control BoardThat is the electronic display that you said is not working. Sometimes there may be signs that the board is defective but most times there is no physical sign the board is defective, I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911
One of the most common problems with refrigerators and freezers is over time dust and lint can accumulate in the condenser coils try cleaning the coils CAREFULLY! with a vacuum. Unplug the unit before doing any cleaning . most units have a cardboard cover in the back, remove this to get at the coils . also check the fan(if there is one ) to see that it is not stuck.replace cover and plug unit back in. check to see if fan is running and for air movement under the front door of unit. Keep in mind all models are different and these solutions are generic ones .Hope this helps.
It sounds like 1 of 4 things... 1. It could be related to the evaporator becoming Iced over and when this happens it insulates the area iced over and the temp rises...this is caused from the defrost cycle not being activated...(Thermostat, or loose or broken wire) 2. There is a device called the thermistor which senses temp and Ice build up which will cause the unit to go into defrost...this could be bad. 3. The previous fixes may cost a little but not as much as the next which could be a restriction in the evaporator. This is serious and usually requires the replacement of the same...very pricey. Is there only 2 compartment or a pull out drawer for freezer foods..If so you could have an isolated problem in the upper freezer compartment which may be remedied without great cost
If your husband or yourself ..or a handy person can access the back of the freezer by removing the back panel I'm sure you will find either lots of Ice good..as far as cost to repair goes....or no Ice...bad...bad.. as far as cost to repair..the later falls in line with a restriction. I hope I have helped....please rate me ...The Fang
