But the freezer is. I pulled it out from the wall
to take a look and the thing in the bottom is
burning hot to the touch. Maybe it's a motor or
compressor. I check for loose wires and none seem
to be. Any ideas? I don't know what else to look
Two possibilities. First is that too often the refrig doors
were open and closed so that coils inside the refrig are iced
over. Second, the refrig no longer has sufficient coolant.
This would have been obvious since the refrigerator was
running longer every day during the past month.
While you have it out, vacuum the dust from cooling coils.
But this will have absolutely no effect on your problem.
May be the evaporator fan. If the freezer is cold and the rest is not, it
may be that the air is not circulating properly. Refrigerators have a small
an that blows air between the compartments. Depending on the model, it is
often in the back of the freezer under the panels. I've replaced a few over
the years for the same symptoms you have.
