Question about Refrigerators
The freezer is working fine. The refridgerator appears to not be working at all. The temp in the refridgerator is almost 60 degrees F.
The defrost systems is:
Start with the timer. it in the refer middle top . there is a knob you can turn it slowly with a screwdriver .until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Emily R - Do you hear anything running in the machine compartment and what type of airflow is the condenser fan providing (try removing the toe grille, located above the drain pain on the bottom right-hand side)? If you do not hear the compressor and unit is providing room temperature, it usually means the unit may have a faulty compressor or a sealed system leak. I would personally recommend contacting the manufacturer for a listing of authorized technicians who may assist you in repairing your unit and reinstalling the part that has been removed due to liability reasons.
