Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Refrigerator runs nearly constantly.

\015 I bought this used, and it cools and makes ice okay, but seems to run all the time. It doesn't seem to be running hot, and I just question the efficiency...I've only had it for a couple of days, though. There does seem to be an access cover missing from the back. I don't know if this could affect the operation, since the evaporator does seem to be adequately cooled.\015

Answers :

Model 550 Refrigerator constantly running. Had a Subzero repairman in and he said the evaporator coil is leaking and the refrigerator compressor is running constantly to keep up to temperature. I have it set at 5 and the temperature is 38 degrees. I decided to turn the freezer control to off (to make sure that compressor was not running) so I could move the refrigerator control warmer to see if it cycled off. When I turned the freezer off, the entire unit went silent; it apparently was the freez

I need information about the defrost thermostat. I have thoroughly cleaned all coils, under the refrigerator and in the freezer. I had to do this because ice was building up in the freezer and the refrigerator was running constantly. I have turned off and unplugged the refrigerator for an hour and plugged it back in and turned it on. I am now letting it hopefully chill and turn off. If it does not turn off, what's next and can I do it myself?
