Hi

The most common problem is the condenser under the refrigerator is clogged with lint. Pull the unit away from the wall for clearance and have someone use a vacuum on the dust. Unplug the unit while working on it and remove what can slide around be careful not to damage the works underneath, as dirt is the whole problem .Clean it and reset to factory settings and leave it for 24 hours.

Please check the bellow link to troubleshoot your problem and to have a detailed knowledge as to why your refrigerator is not cooling enough:-

    Thank you! When you say " leave it for 24 hours", you don't mean leave it unplugged do you?

Make sure there is no lint or dust in the fan motor located on the lower back of the fridge.

My frig freezes top and also spoils coleslaw freezes water beer tried everything


First, call your fridge vendor for service.
*** the following is for information only. ***
* You need a full defrosting as there is ice in your cooling coils.
* Move food items to another refrigerator.
* Do a complete DEFROST of the box. (unplug it.) Expect it to take 4 or more hours. You must wait till all water stops dripping out of the fridge. Keep checking the lower defrost drip tray at bottom of fridge. Dump out water from tray as needed. DO NOT you a hair drier or any other heat source! The heat will warp the plastic. Use a small fan to gently blow into the freezer section.
* DO NOT use an ice pick or sharp object to remove ice! Just let everything melt. (The problem of ice is inside the coils)
* Plug in Fridge but don't put any food in. Set dial temperature to the Mid range setting. Set to freezer venting to normal. Set the refrigerator to mid range. Let it cool down to 0 - 10 degrees and start making ice (in ice maker) If it does not cool down to at least 10 degrees F then call for service. Suspect bad thermostat, Blocked condenser coils, Bad pump, etc. Qualified service tech required to repair.
* Cooling okay? Reload food but don't stuff it in. Leave space between the walls to allow cold air to flow around foods. It will take a day or so to cool down food properly. Note: I may take longer if this fridge is near a heat source like a Hot water heater, Oven, Range, Steam radiator, etc.
* If your still icing up in 2-3 weeks. Then check if the coils are icing up. Defrost is not working. This needs to be checked by a tech. Have him perform annual maintenance.
* Check door seals. Kids leaving the door open? High humidity? * Note how everyone uses the fridge; are they putting hot food in it? Open hot steaming food adds heat and humidity to fridge. Hot food with thaw out other frozen food and build up frost.
* Final, Have a Tech check your fridge. Have them perform maintenance and replace worn items as needed.

Fridge temperature too hot won't go down with temperature controls


This looks like there is a problem with thermstat in the fridge. We had a fridge that would not cool and we found it to be the thermastat problem. You have to replace the thermstat on the fridge. Not 100% sure but a high possibility.

I need to learn how to control the tempature setting


Hello,

The temperature controls are located at the top front of the refrigerator or freezer compartments.
The recommended setting should be correct for normal household refrigerator use. The controls are correctly set when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to completely cool before adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has completely cooled, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature controls to a colder-than-recommended setting will not cool the compartments any faster.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked before adjusting the controls.
To turn Off/On:
Style 1 Press the freezer down arrow touch pad until a dash (-) appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays. Neither compartment will cool.
Style 2 Turn the freezer control to the word Off. Neither compartment will cool when the freezer is set to Off.

Energy Saver option (on some models)
The Energy Saver option turns off the heater which helps to reduce moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses more energy when Energy Saver is off.
Press the control to On to save energy when the environment is less humid.
Press the control to Off when the environment is warm and more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.

Adjusting controls
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or freezer compartment.
NOTES:
For Style 1 control, press the up and down arrow touch pads; for Style 2 controls, turn the dial to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control more than one setting at a time.
Wait 24 hours between adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.

Hope this guideline will helpout.....

Not keeping food cold and popping noise


There is ice buildup in an area that you cannot see.

The interior wall may "bulge" a little if the ice builds up a lot.

1. You may have the cooling dial set too high (use lower numbers)
2. The blower vent into the fridge or freezer maybe blocked (move items away from vents inside)
3. Defrost the fridge. The water pan underneath the refrigerator may overflow.

If there is no "defrost" setting, unplug for an hour (don't open refrigerator or freezer during defrost)

Plug back in, food will not spoil.

What is the best temperature for the bottom freezer and refrig?


Set both dials in the middle.

If you have a nearly full freezer, add 1 dial unit.
If you have a nearly full refrigerator, add 1 dial unit.

If your freezer is less than half full, step down 1 dial unit
Refrigerator should not be less than mid-point on dial (it gets open more often).

This is a good starting point, adjust in a month or so.

Fridge/Freezer working sometimes. Starts and stops


Need you to check the compressor to see if too hot to touch. If so unplug and don't leave it plugged in until we find the problem. This could be start capacitor, start relay, overload or a bad condenser or evaporator fan motor. Like to know he model number to help you better, Let me know, Sea Breeze

Power Problem


You will certainly have to replace the thermostat. Typical problem is once temp. is reached, it takes forever to come on.
