Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My freezer is not keeping items froze. I have the fridge in the garage


Answers :

You need to clean the condenser fins. The fins may be covered with lint that is probably interfering with heat transfer. Compressed air is probably one the best ways to remove lint, and if you have no access to compressed air, a flat brush and vacuum cleaner would do. After cleaning, your freezer should work okay.

Our Magic Chef fridge model # MCBR1000W does not seem to be keeping the fridge part cool enough, but still keeps the items in the freezer section frozen. The compressor is working, so not sure why this is happening. If the freezer compartment was overly filled, could this be an issue? Does the refridgerator portion get it's cooling from the vents in the front of the freezer section?
