Hi, refrigerators have either a mechanical defrost timer, or an ADC (Adaptive Defrost Control). If your refrigerator has a mechanical timer, set the cold control to the coldest setting and then advance the defrost timer. You can manually advance the timer with a screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver into the advancement pinion and turn clockwise a 1/4 to 3/8's of a turn. If the compressor starts, replace the defrost timer. For further help, you'll want to call a professional appliance repair technician.

You can use a condenser coil brush to clean the coils periodically. Because the coils exchange heat, any dust, lint, or dirt on them cuts down its ability to exchange heat.

Model#1051 small dorm size...doesn't matter where i set sill freezes everything,,,suggestions?

Repace thermostat. You didn't tell us that it runs ALL the time. It does. You don't have to tell me, I know it does. The first thing the power does is go thru the thermostat and its job is to turn the power off to the pump when it gets cold enough. If it gets cold and freezes everything then everything else is working right. There is no fixing the old thermostat either. That little tube that looks like a heavy bare wire ending next to the freezer coil has a little "freon" in it that expandes and contrectes with temp. change and the change in pressure is what ativates the thermostat. Chances are the "freon" leaked out.
Note, this is not the same "freon" that is pumped around the fridge to cool things. This is sealed in the thermostat and tube only.

When I turn my laptop on everything seems okay. As soon as I click on anything it freezes up, and will not unfreeze.


You may have a virus on the machine or another unspecified windows (assuming it's Windows) issue.

I would reccomend testing in Safe Mode.

- Turn off.
- Tap F8 immediately after switching on.
- Choose 'Safe Mode'.
- Test.

If it works ok there, then you may need to reinstall windows.

If still freezing, then you may have a hardware issue. Some further tests like HDD/Memory tests may be necessary.
