The right setting depends on how many door openings the fridge sees in a day and how packed with food it is. If the fridge is warm, try increasing the thermostat slightly to a higher number. Come back 24 hrs later to see if it has gotten better, You may need to do this a few times. If you don't get any results, then it's possible the thermostat is faulty or the fridge has a leak in the cooling system.

Hi, One of the most common problems with frost-free refrigerators (and often with upright frost-free freezers) is drain freeze up. This is usually caused by the defrost drain clogging, then freezing. On older units, it can also happen when the insulation (usually open-cell Styrofoam) around the drain gets 'water-logged', as it often does over the years, causing ice to build up inside the drain.
The first symptom, at least in top-freezers, is usually water under the crisper drawers, on the floor of the refrigerator section.
In side-by-sides and upright freezers it'll appear as a nifty slab of ice on the freezer floor, eventually running water out onto the kitchen floor.

These are quick and easy to make. Just cut a piece of #12 copper wire (strip from regular 12-2WG 'Romex' household wire) about 6 inches long and bend it around a 1/4 inch round rod. A screwdriver shaft works well for this, but any 1/4 inch dia. piece of metal will do.
Now when your refrig or freezer drain clogs and you find the trough under the evaporator full of ice, here's what you do.
Clear the
ice, open the drain (use hot water in your one gallon pressure sprayer and a wet-vac, and hang this little piece of copper on the defrost heater, so it extends down the drain. On most units, this is a black rod under the evaporator coil. Some use a radiant heater inside a glass tube, with which you can use this method, but you must carefully bend the hook on your copper wire to the diameter of the glass, being sure it puts no pressure on the glass.
This heater is responsible for melting all that frost that we don't have to deal with since the advent of Frost-free units, and it glows a dull red during the defrost cycle, so there's plenty of excess heat for our purpose.
Anyway, since copper's such a good conductor of heat, some of the defrost heater's energy will transfer down the copper wire, into the drain, and keep it open. What I like to call 'stupidly simple', this uses no extra electricity and works extremely well!
One precaution: hang this piece of copper *loosely* over the defrost heater. Don't squeeze or crimp it on, or you risk causing a "hot spot", damaging the heater.
Note: I get a lot of questions as to whether this wire will melt the rubber drain grommet or plastic drain tubing. I've installed literally hundreds of these wires (wish I'd kept count!) and have never seen any damage caused to those areas.
Keep in mind that when the unit switches into defrost, the inside of the freezer is at or below zero. Most defrost cycles last 20 minutes max, with the heater shutting down before the cycle
ends, so the warmth that travels down this little copper wire isn't nearly intense enough to melt anything but ice.

Hope this makes sense! Good luck
David

First, I'm not a Dynacool Tech,
* I remember having one as a kid. You need to fill it with water for the circulator (pump) to work and drip water over a filter that has a fan blowing through it. The water evaporates and cools the air as it flows through (It also increases the humidity).
* here is a Honewell manual. Check out page 12. There should be enough information to get you started.
https://www.sylvane.com/media/documents/products/honeywell-cs071ae-evaporative-cooler-owner%27s-manual.pdf
* Final, Check your warranty and call for service. (though I can't seem to locate a current phone # or web site. May have gone under or bought out.)
* about upgrading to a newer model. There have been many changes to Air conditioning and heating. Many are more efficient and built with newer technology as this evaporative cooling method was used in the 1940's and popular in the 1970's. Check out your local stores and show rooms. Also check Home Depot and Lowe's for home air conditioners

You will have to defrost the freezer and sponge the water out. Not a fun job by any means.

There is no drain because the manufacturer did not want to have water leaking onto the floor.

There is water on the wires somewhere. Use a fan to blow air over the loom and control board, that might restore it.

If your refrigerator has an in-door ice dispenser, the solenoid valve is defective and will have to be replaced.

send the model number?if the freezer is cold but in fridge the top is warm and the bottom is cold it sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor,all it does is cold starts in the freezer at the evaporator coil,and the evap fan blows the cold air into the fridge section,warm air rises so if the fan isn't working the cold air will stay down low and the warm air will stay up on top,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing in the freezer i would have to say the evap fan motor is bad,if the fan is working one of the doors could have been left open and the air ducts froze up or you could have a damper in your model,it's just a door that opens and closes to let the air blow in but send the model number so whoever helps you can look up your fridge,usually the model number for a sxs is in the fridge section open the fridge door look up on the right hand wall up near the ceiling or in the middle of ceiling and there should be a tag with model and serial numbers just send the model number,

Over time, there is the possibility that minerals from the water will build-up in your system.

This is a common cause for leaking water from the taps.

To resolve this issue, you will need:
  • 1/4 cup of bleach
  • 1 or 2 empty water jug (same ones you use for the dispenser)
  • 1 bucket (preferably 6-8 liter capacity)
When you're ready to begin, turn the unit off.

Then, unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet and remove the water bottle.

Dispense water from both the hot and cold taps into the bucket in order to remove the remaining water from the reservoirs in the unit. Be careful with the hot water. Then empty the bucket.
.
Next, take the empty water jug and pour the bleach in and then add tap water into the empty bottle about 1/8 full. You want it just a little more than what it will take to fill the reservoir in the unit.

Now you will place that jug onto the dispenser.

Plug the the power cord back into the outlet and turn the unit on.

Allow the solution of bleach and water to fill the reservoirs. Once this solution has filled the reservoirs, wait about 15 minutes.

Then dispense the water from both the hot and cold taps into the bucket to remove all the water from the system. Again be careful with the hot water.

Next, turn the unit off again and unplug the cord and remove the jug.

Now you'll need to rinse the current bleach solution jug, or of you have another spare jug, use that instead.

Refill the jug again with hot tap water about 1/4 full as you want double the amount of water this time compared to the bleach solution. Then place the jug back onto the unit.

While keeping the machine off and unplugged, let the hot water fill the reservoir again and let it sit for about 10 minutes and then dispense all the hot water from both the hot and cold taps into your bucket. Then empty the bucket.

Now remove you can remove the jug and pull the unit away from the wall. You'll then need to place the bucket below the drain spout which should be on the back on the unit.

Remove the cap and plug from the drain spout and let the water drain out of the system. Once the water has drained, reinstall the plug and cap.

Now you can reuse the jug that you originally removed if it was still full, or you can use a brand new jug. Plug the unit back in and power it back on.

This method should have removed all the mineral deposits that was preventing the rubber inside the spout to form a proper seal.

You just have to find where the leak is and then dry it and add silicone. At this time of year, many refrigeration appliances sweat from the high humidity.

Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

Heres what I've been doing?,,,,,:two_hearts:,,,,,? www.gocash9.com
