I have had a similar experience. Ice may accumulate inside the cabinet, adjacent to the thermostat, even on "frost-free" models. This can be especially troublesome if your home or climate isespecially humid. The ice tricks the thermostat into thinking everythingis cold enough, so the cooling unit simply does not turn on, and when it does come on it only refreshes the ice. Your first thought may be to defrost the fridge. You will have to empty the fridge, then leave it unplugged for a day or two. Be prepared for the melt water, it may run out of the cabinet and flow onto your floor. If this does not help, you will probably want to call a service tech, as fridges do wear out. But do your homework, new refridgerators have come way down in price, and there are incentives in many jurisdictions to encourage you to replace older units with newer, more efficient units. You may find it is a better idea to purchase a new one. I hope that this is helpful, Rob.

The temperature indicated is wrong because the thermostat sensor is faulty.
The faulty sensor (thermistor) send wrong info to display, and as it is also a thermic switch it turns off the compressor before it reaches temperature.
Insert model number here and get replacement part. On the website you also find info on replacement.

Lamona fridge freezer


check that the temp setting knob has not been turned to zero for the fridge. The light is only to let you see what is inside the fridge and is not an indicator of the fridge working.

I have water pooling in the bottom of my fridge, what would it be


more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. Over time it gradually builds and starts voer a larger area. Being you have a top mount refrigerator(freezer on top) there are air ways that connect the freezer to the fridege, which is how its cooled. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt

Fridge side won't cool down, but freezer is fine


very common freezer is where the cold starts then the fan pushes it to the fresh food side/ your air control adjust the tempt for you . the problems that cause your problem are frost build up o freezer coil . look in freezer for frost on back . listen for your fan when you open the door . if frosty the defrost system has failed and no fan no air flow . the freezer will have problems to . see what you can and get back with me .

Water works but icemaker does not. the freezer barely cools


The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

Condensation


Should not be a problem. Be aware that these units cook more quickly...and they pull out moisture differently from the food and some of it hits colder parts of the oven...condensation. If all else seems well, you're okay.
