I emptied the freezer side took the plastic light cover off ( a snap fit) then took the 9 screws out to allow the back cover to be removed. I then used a hair dryer to remove the ice that had built up around the piping and cooling fins (DO NOT use anything sharpe, be patient). Place a towel at the bottom to catch the melt.
\012This took 20 mins max. Better than off for five days or the alarm going off four times a day.

Hello,Hindsight being 20/20, you should have refused it when the damage was apparent. My thoughts 1) would be that when the unit was dropped, a pinhole leak developed, and over time, the refrigerant has leaked out. ... Refrigerators

Your model has a separate evaporator in the refrigerator department and separate fan motor. So from your description it seems that the fan motor is running even if the temperature is reached. The reasons for that is the following two.\015\01 ... Samsung Refrigerators

The digital display resets to 0 F for BOTH the Freezer and Refrigerator after I change the temps (for eg to -4F for the freezer and 34F for the refrigerator) Also the the refrigerator and freezer are definitely not cooling properly nor is the icecube maker working.

Dometic fridge The refrigerator section seems fine. It maintains a 38-40 degree temp, but the freezer isn't much colder. Ice cube trays will never freeze solid, just skim over. This is on 120 volt. I have just switched it over to propane to see if that helps. We are not moving, but staying in one spot, and the electric side seems to be the problem. Alex, [email protected]


I would look for a ventilation problem. If the fridge is working at that level nothing wrong with electric. The unit needs air to move up and out the top to make the freezer work. It sounds like the air is only moving the wrong way out the lower vent ... Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator

Samsung RS2545SH S by S is not maintaining cool temp in Ref side. Also is freezing up behind panel which is behind chilled water container in Ref side. Have adjusted Temp several times. Door gaskets are good. Sounds as though the internal cooling fan is hitting somthing (possibly the build up of ice) after several days of normal use after a full shut down defrost. What might the problem be and how can I fix it. I tried to get the panel off inside the Ref with no luck. The freezer is working fine

My LG fridge is working but it doesn't seem to be very cold. The freezer is working too, it's freezing ice blocks, but everything on the top shelf isn't frozen. It's an LG Fresh Master No-Frost GR-242MF. It's second hand & before now hasn't been turned on for a few months. I've had it turned on for nearly a week, and over time it seems to be slowly getting colder but still not cold enough to store anything in it. I'm trying to avoid getting a repairman out as I paid nothing for the fridge

We have a DSS25KSRD GE Side by side... A couple of weeks ago we were having a problem keeping the green light from blinking... Now we find that the freezer is not retaining the cold. The water in the ice cube make is not freezing and even after turning the temp control to #9, we seem to be losing the cold. We have made sure that the door isn't ajar from anything but can't keep the temperature down.

I have a ten year old Sub-Zero 650. The "vacuum condenser" has been displayed for over a year even though the coils have been vacuumed and are kept clean. The fridge has been working fine despite the display. In the last couple of weeks the freezer has been maintaining the temp. perfectly while the fridge has been fluctuating between 40 degreed to 58 degrees. being no expert, it seems there is a sensor that tells the fridge or freezer what temp. it needs to be. Since the freezer is ok, it seems

The freezer side is NOT freezing, but the refrigerator side seems to be cooling normally. I tried emptying the freezer compartment and setting the thermostat at maximum cold, but nothing seems to help. Also, the through-the-door water dispenser quit working at about the same time.

Noisy refrigerator/freezer My 16 yr old 18 cu Maytag, Model #RTD23A, top freezer refrigerator has developed a noisy motor. It's loudest in the freezer. Is it trying to tell me it's outlived its usefulness and longs to go to refrigerator heaven or is there something I can do to tone down the noise. It's working relatively well, except any soda cans in the back of the fridge freeze up sometimes, and on the flip side, the ice cream isn't freezing hard. Meats and veggies seem to freeze up just f

I have a 4 yr old frigidaire top mount refrigerator. The freeze keeps things frozen although it doesn't seem to run often causing condensation to drip from the top of the freezer. Ice gets frozen and everything stays frozen from what I can tell - but there is always many beads of water dripping from the top of the freezer (NOT the refrigerator). I turned the temp of the freezer down and I didn't hear it click on. It seems at times those water beads are frozen and then they defrost hours
