My fridge doesn't cool. The bottom freezer works and the lights in both compartments work. The "Refridgerator temp" buttons do not light up or work. The "Freezer Temp" buttons light up, but do not respond. I tried unplugging and then plugging it back in. The temp settings reset and the fridge started to cool, but after about 5 minutes, the same problem occurred again.

Freezer and Fridge not cooling. Was out of the country for a few months. It turns on with no problem, the light and fans are on and it sounds like it's cooling, air is being circulated and the coils are not dirty but it doesn't get very cold.

The cooling unit stops running periodically.....long enough to allow food in the freezer to thaw. The fridge light is on, so electricity is getting to the fridge. The previous tenant had dogs, and when we cleaned under the fridge, alot, and I mean alot of hair was under there. I believe that once it is off for long enough, it may have cooled a component enough to allow it to run for a while. It does end up refreezing the food in the freezer. Thanks
