ngfam1 at your service,
Happy to assist!
What is the model and year of your fridge?
Or rather how old is it?
1.-First is the freezer packed to the top where the frozen food covers the vents or air vents in the freezer?
The freezer and the refrigerator share the compressor and the cold air and the vents or passages between them must be kept some what clear! This can cause the warm fridge some times!
2.- Did you ever clean the tons of dust accumulated under the fridge on the condenser?
You gently pull off the front grill and with a flash light while laying on the floor eye ball the situation under the fridge!
If it's full of dust 2 inches high and all the way across and you can not see the thin black tubes of the condenser then this is the reason!! You need a refrigerator brush from home depot or some place to clean it out! A VACUUM WILL NOT FIR IN THERE ! AND BE CAREFUL AND GENTLE THE FREON RUNS THROUGH THOSE TUBES!
I've seen this many times that the folks never ever ran a refrigerator brush under there as long as they owned the fridge!
And the next day, 24 hours later it was up to full temperature!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you can not remove the grill, open the user guide and the book will tell you how to install the grill by pressing with your fingertips at the top and bottom of two clips or flaps of plastic that are part of the grill. One set top and bottom about 6-8 inches from the left end and the opposite on the right end!
If there is no condenser under neath and it is in the rear of the fridge you will recognize it in the back ,being thin black tubes running up and down the back of the fridge! ITS ONLY ON REAL OLD MODELS OR REAL CHEAPPPPPPPPPPPP MODELS.
THE BOTTOM OF THE LINE FRIDGES!
IF THEIS DOES NOT WORK YOU MAY NEED TO CALL A&E FACTORY SERVICE AT 1 800-905-9505 24/7
IF THE FRIDGE IS 9 YEARS OLD OR MORE , DO NOT INVERST ANY GOOD MONEY INTO A BAD FRIDGE. And buying a new one will save you money on the elctric bill!
They are all much more effiecent than the older ones!
And it will pay for it self in a few years!
