I was vacumming the coils under my whilpool side by side when I believe I heard a faint whistle along with a odorless thin white smoke that stayed low to the ground. The compressor is hot to the touch, yet the freezer is holding at 0. The center dividing wall where both doors meet and seal side by side is hot to the touch. All tubing is hat or warm as well. The back is cold though and the air flow is cold. Did I puncture the coil and have a R134 leak? Should I shut down the unit?
Yes it sound like you did puncture the refrigerant line to your unit, if you have a sorae refrigerator I would proceide in relocating the stuff and call a service company out to repair the leak. ...
I have a frigdaire model FFC05M0AW1 and it stopped working. If I unplug it for a minute, then plug it back in, it emits a slight "buzzing" sound from underneath, then shuts off permanently. I cleaned it out and let it sit for a day then plugged it back in, same result. It's about 6yrs old and is kept in an outdoor building, we've had cold (10 deg.F) weather lately and the building is unheated, it's survived similar cold in previous winters, what is wrong?

My refrigerator was not cooling and I found the evaporator coil frozen over. I replaced the defrost control board and now everything is very cold. My refrigerator is freezing everything. It won't shut off, no matter what the temperature setting. Compressor running constantly. I have turned freezer setting down and fridge temperature setting is all the way to the 0 position. Please advise! Thank you!

Both fridge and freezer are turned up to maximum cooling but they just aren't cold enough even though the weather is mild. Icecream is very soft - barely frozen and fridge temp is about 8 degrees Celcius.
Fan in freezer compartment works fine (turns on when door shut).

NDR 1292 Bought new rv in 2007, came equipped with Dometic NDR 1292. Woked fine the first few months, but as weather warmed up, so did the temp in the fridge. It seems to work fine in the winter weather, but defrosts all day in the warm months and cools as the night weather cools. Don't know what to make of this.
Make sure the condenser fan underneath the unit is running when the compressor is. I don't know what else it could be unless the door gaskets are in bad shape. ...

I have a Frigidaire PLHS69EGSS stainless stell side by side refrigerator that I just bought used. The man I bought it from said that the freezer would only cool to 18 degrees (not cold enough he said) but the refrigerator would cool to 34 degrees (cold enough). Well we bought it and found that neither one gets very cold despite setting them on low temps (set fridge 34 and freezer 0). The sometimes read low temps that are close to what we set (although it never feels really super cold) but most o

Refrigerator not getting cold - freezer still pretty cold - perhaps not all the way [email protected]
I purchased a Kenmore fridge in Aug. 2005 (no freezer - fridge only). During a couple weeks of warmer weather I noticed it was not keeping the foold cold which ended up in the garbage. I fortunately have a small bar fridge I am able to use for the essentials. I called Sears repair Aug. 21 and to date no one has bothered to contact me to set up a time to fix it it. I was told It would

I have a Kenmore side-by-side model 596.57542790. The freezer only gets to 18 degrees F.on max. cold setting. The fans seem to be working, and they shut off as though it thinks it is cold enough. The fridge is not quite as cold as normal but not too bad. Coils are clean.
Hello Expert, I have this close to 20 year old Frigidaire Fridge/Freezer with the freezer department on top and fridge on the bottom. The problem is that the fridge department is not getting cooled down even if I turn the fridge's thermostat full to 'cold'. However the fan is working fine as I shut the door, but no air to the fridge. If i disconnect the fridge for about 1 hour, and reconnect to power there is cold air to the fridge, but soon will begin to not blow cold air into the fridge depar

Freezer running at 0 to 10 below but fridg wont go below 42. Cold control tested good. Cleaned bottom was really dirty brushed an vacumed no improvement. Air flow from vent in rear of refrigator compartment is very weak. Is this just the cold air flowing downward due to a broken fan. Should cold air flow be strong.Just wanted to know before I start taking things apart to test fan. This a GE freezer on top[ model TBX18K. Thanks for any help.

Freezer coils at back get frozen thru to plate at back. Cold air does not get thru to fridge sufficiently. Now we have freezer set between 0 and 1 and fridge at 6. Freezer is extremely cold - fridge normal. What is the problem? Pls give us some ideas as to what could be causing this. We are on the point of buying another and this one is not that old!

Maytag MSB2354DRW My fridge suddenly stopped shutting on me. If I just pull it a tiny bit
it'll pop open. The problem is that the air leaks out and my fridge
isn't cold anymore. My hinges appear fine as well..it's just that it
doesn't close properly. Also If you shut the door hard enough, it'll close and cool my food a bit
better but it still appears to be open a bit from the bottom. Thanks
If door does not close at all, even if you push you need to replace the door pickoff.If door stick a bit but does not stay closed you have to replace the door seal. ...
Freezer works, but not as cold. Frozen meat is staying frozen, but frozen bread and ice cream are cold but soft when both are usually hard. Also ice maker has stopped working. First it was working slower (lower production), but now it appears to have shut down. I suspect that the ice maker has stopped because the freezer temperature is too high. Also, changing the freezer temperature control knob appears to be ineffective following 24-hour waits between changes.
How old is this unit? it may be a faulty temp sensor or needs a good thawing. ...
