Guff21, you have a problem with defrost cycle.
3 things, defrost heater, bi metal, and timer. either one of the three goes bad, same problem appears.

check the defrost heater by resistance. it should have a resistance
check the timer if it is turning and tunning and transfering from cooling mode to heating mode and vice versa.
you can only check the bi-metal if its all frozen up. the bi-metal is close at freezing temperature and opens at thaw themperature.

i hope i was able to solve your problem.

The refridgerator party not staying cold... Freezer part is staying cold


Look into back of freezer and see if a layer of frost is building on rear panel. If yes unplug and manually defrost until you can get back with me with the model number. What you said is the first symptos of defrost not taking place. Look around door frame for the model and I will be back later with part numbers. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridge isn't cold


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Refridgerator/Freezer will not get cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer

If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
