I have a 6 year old American style fridge freezer. In recent times the freezer alarm has been permanently flashing and sounding periodically. The freezer does not appear as cold as it once was and it's fair to say the fridge is similar although, the digital read out suggests it holding it's temperature. I am close to replacing it but wondered if anyone out there has any ideas on possible diagnosis,potential cost of repair, life span etc. many thanks Russ

I increased the temperature on the control board to 41 degrees but the digital thermometer I placed on a shelf reads 26 degrees.

I've had the Bosch freestanding french door fridge for less than a week. I have the temps set as low as possible - -8F for freezer and 35F for fridge. I've taken readings with a new digital thermometer to find the freezer reading 0F and the fridge shelves reading from 39.6F to 40.5F. The vita drawer is reading 40.2F when they should be closer to 32F. Any suggestions for improving the cooling ability?

I have a side by side Whirlpool refrigerator. The Freezer coils freeze up and the fridge side gets warm. There is no cold air blowing out of the vent in the back of the fridge. I thawed the coils out with a blow dryer and turned the fridge back on. There was a little cool air coming out of the back vent but then stopped again after 1/2 hour. I was reading that possibly the PC board went bad or the defrost thermostat is bad. How can I tell which one so I do not have to spend all that money trying

HTS22GBMARCC freezer works fine, fridge barely cool. I read many suggestions from folks on this and other websites that said the evaporator fan was probably bad. I measured the voltage on the connector that plugs into the fan and have 12Vdc from the Red to White wires. The fan wasn't turning so I figured the fan was bad. I bought a new fan and it doesn't work either. I thought maybe the fan wouldn't come on right away, but it still isn't coming on 6 hours after plugging in the fridge. The
