A few things to start with... the refrigerator actually gets cold from the freezer side. so is the freezer cold and if so is there frost on the back wall? are you sure the compressor is running it is located in the rear on most models and should be heard if it is running. sometimes when a compressor goes out you will here a clicking noise every few minutes which is the relay trying to start. is the fan inside the freezer side running with the door swich pressed with your finger listen inside do you here a fan running.... also make sure the coils are clean on alot of models they are located under unit...need more info...

If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get help to test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is good the possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case you must take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.


Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

My fridge isnt getting cold


if the fridge isnt getting cold, and the compressor is running, try to check the amperage of the compressor side, if the amp. lower than normal current, there must be a problem of the refrigerant (leaking) or lose compression. And if the compressor is not running try to check the thermostat, compressor and the relay.

The icemaker will not work


you might need to replace the icemaker or the freezer isnt getting cold enough for the icemaker to operate correctly. if freezer isnt getting cold enought for icemaker to operate correctly you should probably have it checked by a tech. if the icemaker isnt taking water you also could have a bad water valve
