Have you checked you evaporator coils?

    This is a common occurrence, and doesn’t always have
    a clear-cut solution. You’ll want to check the internal freezer
    temperature. The operating temperature range of most residential
    freezers is between -10F and +10F. The optimum temperature of the
    freezer is between 0F and 5F. Proper refrigerator operating
    temperatures should be between 36 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit. If the
    refrigerator temperature is very close to the 35 degree mark, you can
    try turning the temperature up a little bit.

    Sometimes, rearranging how you put your foods in the
    refrigerator
    can make a difference. The temperatures vary from compartment to
    compartment. Another common cause is a leaky gasket. Try putting a
    dollar bill between the gasket and the frame of the freezer as you
    close the door. If the dollar comes out without resistance, then you
    need a new door gasket.

    When installing a refrigerator door gasket, you should allow
    the
    gasket to adjust to room temperature before removing it from the
    carton. When carrying or handling the gasket, you want to carry it by
    the corners. This will help to prevent breakage of the flexible magnet.
    Should the magnet be found to be broken, it will NOT impair its
    effectiveness. If the gasket is deformed or twisted from long storage,
    you can heat the deformed section with an electric heater, hair dryer,
    or a 150-300 watt light bulb. Holding the heat source about 1 inch to 3
    or 4 inches from the gasket, move the heat source back and forth to
    maintain even warming. Apply heat until gasket has resumed its original
    shape. This can also correct an already installed, deformed gasket.
    Make sure you use caution so as not to damage the inner door panel.

Freezer is freezing fridge is warmer than usual does the dial indicating coldness from 1 to 2 apply to the freezer, refrigerator or both? have cleaned condenser on back of refrigerator - it was not really...


Usually, the freezer knob just adjusts the airflow from the freezer to the freshfood section. The refigerator control turns the unit on and controls temperature. When unit is running, do you hear the fan running in the freezer? The fan forces air to the refigerator section. If not, probably bad fan motor. If it is, do you see frost build up on the back wall of freezer section? If so this would indicate a defrost problem, ice build up on evaperator blocking airflow to refrigerator section. You cleaned the condenser, Was the condenser fan running? Defrost causes. Defrost thermostat, heater,defrost timer. Good luck.

Freezer builds up with frost about every 60-75 days. have to empty the freezer and allow to thaw for a few hours


I think I can assume the freezer isn't a "frost-free".
A short physics lesson; hot air holds more moisture than cold air; hot air will flow from a warm area to a colder area, and the colder area will cause the moisture to condensate and freeze(if colder area below freezing, as a freezer should be), causing frost build up.The more often the freezer is opened, the more frost will build up.
Now for 3 possibilities:1) If it is a self-defrosting type, check your defrost timer control...not working, or not working often enough.2) Door seals damaged and need replacement.3)Make the kids stay out of freezer.

I have an admiral refigerator (top freezer) less than 3 years old. The unit sat in a vacant house unplugged for about a year and now will not cool. Any suggestions


Good day,
Check in the freezer compartment to see if you can hear the fan motor running. They will freeze up if left off for extended periods of time.
Another fan motor on the bottom back near the compressor can suffer the same fate.
If both check O.K. Then since it's under 5 years you could have a refrigerant leak or a compressor problem that is under factory warranty.
Call your selling dealer for service.

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

Whirlpool top freezer problem


Check for frost build-up behind back wall in freezer. If there is a heavy frost build-up, it's not defrosting. This will restrict airflow to refigerator section and can stop fan. If fan is stuck again and it's not because of frost, replace evaporator fan motor.
