    Our refrigator side is hot inside. The roof inside was very hot. The freezer seems to be working fine. I unpluged it and move it to colder and now it seems to be getting cool and not putting off much air.

Hi
same thing happened to me with a westinghouse upside down fridge freezer yesterday. i talked to a mate of mine who is a refrigeration mechanic and he said to check the air flow going into the fridge via the freezer and to see if the fan above the evaporator was working. he also said you would probably have to have the fridge light switch depressed as the fan is designed to only run when the fridge door is closed. when i removed the cover in the back of the freezer to inspect the fan i found the fan was spinning okay, but my evaporator was choked up with ice. i gave it a good defrost and clean out and everything seems okay now. i think the heating element around the evaporator (frost free) is not working and that is why it has iced up. apparently it is very important to have good airflow in and around the evaporator so if it is iced up or you have too much stuff in your freezer it will not be efficient and your refrigerator performance will suffer.
to have a rough idea on whether you have enough gas in your system, he suggested feeling the pipes coming out of the compressor. in normal conditions one should be quite hot to touch and the other should be a little bit cooler than room temperature. your condensor (which is the big coil up the back of the fridge should be warm and your evaporator (coil behind a cover in your freezer should be cold to touch)
hope this helped

Refridgrator's compressor run for few seconds and stop. No cooling


That is called short cycling and caused by a defective start relay, overload, run capacitor, defective fan motor or defective compressor and of course it needs to be diagnosed to have the fridge cooling again

Ice build up around fan in frezeer.makes looud noise....if not melted the refridgrator part a bottom of unit stops cooling.....if melted fan runs smthly....things cool well, but happens again over noght...


The defrost circuit has failed. Typical failures are the defrost heater has opened, the defrost timer if equiped, is not advancing or the defrost thermostat is open. To check the heater, melt the ice, and use a meter to check if the heating elements are open, if they are, then you will need to replace the heating element.

THE IS CAUSED BY THE SYSTEM BEING LOW ON REFRIDGRENT, THIS IS CAUSED BY A LEAK, MOST COMMON CAUSE OF THE LEAK IS THE FRONT SEAL OF THE AC COMPRESSOR.
