My families fridge/freezer is flashing a fridge temp.of 9 oc.I have cleaned the seal on the door and vacuumed behind the appliance.I have also checked the drain tray which was ok but noticed the black thing at the back (low)was extremely hot.Could this be part of the problem and is the plastic drain tray that sits on top of this in any danger or burning? We would be greatful of any help or advice you could offer.Thanks.Greg.

You might have a torn seal around the door. CHeck that carefully and clean it with a damp sponge.
The model number is on a tag somewhere inside the fridge, usually easily readable so check by the filter or the light.
You might also have frozen coils, and might need to defrost it (turn it off for a day with the doors open) so get some freezer boxes and some dry ice to store your food and keep a towel on the floor in front of the freezer to absorb the melted ice.
Hi, The first thing I would do is to check the compressor and the condenser fan. Remove the cover on the back of the fridge and check how hot is the compressor? Is the condenser fan turning well? Also check the condenser coil under the fridge, it is very possible it needs cleaning. If the condenser fan is not working properly then it has to be replaced. If the condenser fan motor is fine and the cleaning did not help then the sealed system is low on Freon and in such case you need a certified technician to fix a leak and to charge the system. Good luck in solving the problem of the freezer...
check the door seal on the top of the door if not sitting flat to the frame it will encourage frost to build up (inside the little grid thing)which will stop the rest of the freezer from cooling enough.
Make sure freezer door seal is completely sealed. No gaps, Also, if you are up to the challange, you will need to remove the freezer panel, test thermometer, thermostat, for voltage and resistance. Also check that the flapper that seprates freezer from fridge air.; Is not frozen.
