Hi Folks, My daughters fridge is not getting cold. The freezer is find but
the lower fridge just doesn't get cold enough. We tried setting it to the
coldest setting and waiting 24 hours, Still no luck. Any idears on what to
look for ?
Assuming that it was working normally until recently and no changes have
been make, I would suggest using up as much as possible and storing the rest
of the food in friends and neighbor's friges. Then un-plug it for a couple
of days allowing everything to reach room temperature and that the drain for
the frost water is clear.
Then try turning it back on and see what happens. If it works and
continues to work, great. If it works for a while and then goes back, you
need the tech. It is freezing up inside.
Been there, done that. Just last month. Same exact symptoms.
It was a loose connection to the compressor fan on a four-month-old GE.
Sears fixed it for free under warranty. If you can find the fan, see if
it runs. If not, trace its wires and see if all the connections are
good. If so, replace fan.
Here\'s some of my work:
Try a real good defrost. Pull the plug ,open the door(be sure you provide
for the food in a refrig) let the unit completely drain overnight. If you
can find it replace the very cheap defrost timer switch. I had same problem.
Unit wouldn't defrost and it choked itself off in the fridge section.
