Question about Refrigerators
My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer appears to be working okay. What can be some of the problems? How can I fix it myself? Thanks.
I'm a maintenance man with the city housing.I have the same problem with magic chef refrigerators of not getting cold on bottom.I found out sometimes when drain in freezer box gets block when it defrost the water builds up then freeze up blocking the vent hole stopping the cold air from reaching the bottom compartment.Solution Turn off refrigerator drop the thermostat housing in bottom compartment and clean drain.Then remove rear freezer wall disconnected fan than manually melt ice build up in freezer coils and bottom vent hole with hot water boil it in a small pot for quicker melting time..Pour on coils until ice melts.make sure you put a pot inside bottom compartment to catch water when you melting the ice on coils and vent hole.When ice is melted.Turn back on the refrigerator hook back fan.And test coil heater manaully turn heater timer and see if the heater comes on.If it's ok start putting everything back together.Set your thermostat.Note this want I do when I'm in a tenant apartment on a repair.If you got time and just leave the both refrigerator door and let room temperature melt the ice.Which can take hour's.

Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.
