Check gasket on door. Air may be getting in.

This means the current freezer compartment temperature.

Take care.

With the door left open moisture would get into the unit behind the walls and into the duct work. The only way to fix this right is to unload it and let it unthaw for a day or so open. Once it is all defrosted and restarted it should be fine again.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

no. the orange light is the temperature light and the green light is the mains light.

When the automatic defrost system quits working frost builds up on the coils inside the freezer section and impedes airflow to the refrigerated section.
If this is the case the freezer section will begin to warm also.
You may end up having to replace a defrost timer.

as per the problem which you mentioned there are two possibilities for this problem
i will explain
1) either the evaporator coil in the unit is the problem
or the 2) the defrost timer is faulty.
as per you the defrost timer is working. but that not clears that timer is working and in good condition. the timer should work on proper timing and off at proper timing .if the timer becomes short it will remain on for more then required and will remain off when actually required.
the evaporator coils never go bad or faulty mostly it only stops working if the over load of ice frost gets collected in between the coil and the evaporator fan due to things the coil actually does not get required hot and this makes freezer bit more cold and refrigerator very low cooling or may be hot. also the other air ventilations gets blocked due to evaporator coils stop working .to resolve this issue the only best option is to empty the fridge/freezer unit and unplug the unit from main power out let keep the door open of the unit and leave it for 24 hours this melts all the collected ice in the coil as well as in the air ventilation area. after that clean the inner area of unit with a dry cloth and then plug in the connection and turn the unit ON keeping the temperature at normal settings. then check out after two hours if the unit works proper the evaporator coil was the fault and that got cleared from the unit by defrosting .but if the proper is same as before after two hours when you check then its defrost timer faulty in the unit
now i will explain what is defrost timer .the defrost timer is the part which controls the cooling and defrosting in refrigerator .it actually spins as the coldness in the unit. after the temperature reaches to certain coolness it spins back wards and defrosts .if the defrost timer is faulty it will not spin properly and all cooling and defrosting system of the unit will get misaligned. if the timer gets faulty the cooling will reach till over frost and then the fan the coils in the unit will get blocked due to ice built-up and over current will be exerted by the unit to melt that ice. and in this melting ice procedure without defrost timer the unit stops completely .it can effect any section lower or upper or may be both. so the defrost timer at present needs replacement. its like a mini plastic box . color is mostly black or white or creamish . the cost of timer is near to $ can get it from
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

I am not familiar with your unit but It sounds like you may have more problems then you think. The freezer and refrigerator are probably on the same compressor so a fuse shouldn't be involved unless the light doesn't come on. If that is the case you have a tripped breaker or blown fuse in your house panel. Be sure the freezer is actually still working, they warm up much slower then the refrigerator. Put a thermometer inside close it and check every few hours for a few days. It will go up and down, this is normal but it should stay at least -10 or lower (guess on this unit). Check to see if the compressor is operating. Is it possible somebody bumped the thermostat while putting something in the unit?

Hope this helps as a starting point. Find a local source of dry ice in case the freezer fails, this will hold it for a while saving your food giving you time to effect a repair.

The only thing that will make it cool to low is a thermostat. They wear out and get out of calibration. Check to be sure the temp sensor from the thermostat is tight on the mount. Its the little tube that connects to the evaporator that makes the thermostat work.

Go to there website and see if you can find your model. You can also contact them from there.

Also get yourself a stand alone fridge and freezer thermometer - leave it in for an hour -that will establish what the temperature really is which will help in diagnosing the cause.

Also trying unplugging it for 15 minutes so the display board loses power - then plug it back in - sometimes that will reset it.
