Need Help! Hello! I have a Frigidaire Refrigerator # FRT21LR7AW about five years old. The problem is that it's not cooling the lower part and the top freezer is freezing the coils and blocks the vent that lets the air circulate down. I have to keep melting the ice with hair dryer in order for bottom part to get cool. Can someone help me with this problem with any advice or parts that may need to be replaced. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank You! mjpagan

Freezer freezes up, refrigerator stays at 58 degrees. When defrosted with a hairdryer and put back, freezer works for half-day, makes 1 load of ice, then freezes up again. Had 4 different repair men try and fix it. They replace parts, but the fix only lasted a few days each time. This Samsung is only 3 years old. Samsung couldn't fix it when it was in warranty !

Hi there, Happy Xmas. My silver Miele KFN12823SD Fridge Freezer is 2 1/2 years old. I have never cleaned the inner workings propperly. It keeps filling up with water at the bottom - something is blocked???? AND the 'door open' alarm keeps going off even when the door is closed (in the middle of the night-very annoying). I would appreciate your help in this matter. Many thanks, Tess

Our Sub-Zero is a 532. It is I believe about 23 years old. It came with the house. First the refrigerator was not cooling/working properly, & the technician who came out cleaned the coils.

Now, we're back to the fridge not cooling properly and ice building up, and the technician says that now needs a new compressor and evaporator coil...and now the freezer, which was just "fixed", keeps warming up and is not staying at freez

Refrig cooling Unit loosing cooling in freezer and most likely main compartment too. No iceing up, coils were dirty, cleaned them. It does cool correctly for a while then stops blowing cold air before everything is frozen. Compressor seems to be ok. I think is may be a temp sensor. Old unit, maybe 15 years old, used in the garage for extra storage. Unless it's a cheap part I don't see the use in repairing it. Your thoughts?

Chemical odor I have started noticing a chemical smell from the refrigerator and freezer. The appliance is a GE Profile side by side and is approx. 10 years old. We keep our Grandson's bottles of milk and teething toys in there...is this harmful? The ice tastes like plastic sometimes. I saw a lot of posting that others have had this problem also, but no solutions??? I can't believe this isn't something a repairman can't fix or pinpoint??? It sounds like it's a common problem with older models?


This can be a result of chemical reaction in internal parts. If you notice it is faint the keep orange peels to get off the smell. It could be the freon. It is kind of like your a.c. in your car. It is the gas that makes it cold. You might have a lea ... Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Our 10 year old Amana fridge (side by side) cannot keep a constant temperature. Some days the alarm will beep that both the refridgerator and freezer temperatures are warm. You can see that the ice cube tray is melting and any items on the top shelf are warm. Other days the carrots in the refridgerator crisper freeze even if we do not alter the temperature settings. Please help . We have had two service people in, paid over $270 and have tried a new fan. The problem still exists. Please help!
