Close the vent for maximum cooling. When you open the vent it opens a panel to the outside air and the unit cools less efficiently.

Lastly check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!

THERMISTORS in the freezer and fridge section for continuity OHMS and for amount of OHMS current being put out. In most models around 13000 ( give or take 150 ohms) ohms is required

The regrigerator does not cool. It makes noise like it is on but never gets cool.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Refrigerator not cooling

if your talking about the damper vent door motor,it is behind the vent grille where the damper vent is and is controlled by the refrigerator temp adjustment control,sometimes these doors freeze open or shut from condensation,if this is the case take a hand held hair dryer and thaw and dry out door and hinges and then try adjusting temp asnd see if the door opens and closes now

Hopoint fridge freezer model ff78p - fridge is not cooling

check the damper door vent between the freezer/refrigerator compartments and make sure this door is opening and closing as you adjust the cold control in the refrige section,it may have a diverter cover on it but you should feel cold air flow in this area even if its only open part way,then remove this cover and check that its not iced up if so use a hair dryer carefully and deice it,then try the control and see if it opens and closes as you adjust the cold control in the refrige

How do I stay warm in a cold office?

Multiple options here, but some may require maintenance worker to adjust.

1) Adjust thermostat. (Got to assume you don't have control of this, or the thermostat is set low to cool other areas and you freeze because of that.)

2) Close the vent in your office. Depending on type of vent, may be as simple as a slide handle, a twist handle, or some apparatus that must be adjusted.

3) Variation of #2 above, place a piece of cardboard in vent to partially or completely close off the vent.

4. OK, dress warmly. Not the greatest idea, but an option.

5. Perhaps the option of last resort, get a small heater and place under your desk to warm you. Need to be careful to not allow anything to contact it and start a fire, nor do you want to overload a circuit.

6. OK, least attractive of all options, change jobs.

Air conditioner

On my 90 Aerostar 3L, I had a similar problem, in that the front vent control, or blend door was not setup correctly and had to be adjusted. Somehow the choke type cable for temperature adjust, had slipped out of its holder at the door end, and was not allowing the blend door to close properly, and the outside air was not allowed to bypass the interior heater core, even thought the cooling core was lowering the air temp, but raising it again because it had to go through the heater core. Removing the top of the dash, and looking in from outside the windshield, and having someone operate the temp control will tell you if it's working properly, or needs adjustment. Alternately, if it's the manual control type, by quickly operating the temp control, you should here the blend door "thump" as you open and close it. There should be full travel in the control range, or if limited, the above problem applies, adjust at the blend door mechanism.
