Thanks for the question.
Is the compressor going
Can you feel frost on the freezer panel.
I don't think the compressor is running. (I would hear the louder noise of it, right?) I just have the faint hum of the fridge like it always does, not like the louder woosh of it cooling down like after it has been open for a while.
I don't know exactly what panel I should check, but there is no frost anywhere in the freezer. Anything that would be frost or ice is now melted.
Ok, I pulled it out and the panel off the bottom/back. The compressor is warm, but not to hot that I can't hold my hand on it. Seems like what would be pretty normal. The fan is running.
The unit sounds like normal with the quiet hum of the fan running, but not the louder woosh of it really working to cool down.
The coils are cool to the touch, like room temp with the little breeze the fan is blowing through. Not hot or cold.
The freezer is cool inside, not cold or freezing, but not warm yet, but it is getting there. It and the fridge or loosing the cool/cold.
Additional side note, we had frozen vegies and fruit in the bottom fridge drawers that we through out today. IWe have had issues with this fridge for a couple of years now and have had to put the settings all the way to max cold. but this time its not coming back up and working.
With your hand on the compressor is it vibrating like its working.
I know its bad news , the most important thing you can do for maintenance on a fridge is to keep the coils by the compressor clean, especially if you have animals in the house, dirty coils can cause a compressor to fail..
Thanks and God Bless.
You as well.
