esequiel walker :

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

Where is the temp guage?

esequiel walker :

on the fridge side

esequiel walker :

are things freezing up

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

No

esequiel walker :

is it iceing up in the fridge side by the vents

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

yes

esequiel walker :

ok that means that the damper control which is a motorized vent that opens and closes by temp is not closing

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

will that require a tech to come out ?

esequiel walker :

yes as he will have to dissasemble the inside of the fridge

esequiel walker :

and remove the freezer inside wall panel to address the fan issue

esequiel walker :

on this brand everything is electronic

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

is it possile that there is ice build up can I lower the temp and see if the ice melts ????

esequiel walker :

what is it set on now

esequiel walker :

the fridge side should be between 3 and 4

esequiel walker :

the freezer on 2

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

Still cant find the unit temp control...is it on the front electronic panel ?

esequiel walker :

yes

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

I'll check.......give me a minute

esequiel walker :

ok

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

fridge has actual temps it is on 36'....I changed the freezer to 2 but -12 keeps popping up.........

esequiel walker :

thats fine for the freezer the fridge set it to 38 that should regulate the temp and eliminate the ice on the vent

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

will that solve the problem ????

esequiel walker :

that will fix you up ok

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

so the sound should dissapear?

esequiel walker :

the sound should go away when it goes to defrost mode

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

So increasing the temps should make the unit enter the defrost mode?

esequiel walker :

no it goes in to defrost mode by itself anyways all fridges do

esequiel walker :

all you have to do is let it go

esequiel walker :

you have done all you can its up to the fridge to self adjust

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

This sound has been around for the last few days, the unit should have defrosted aready, right ?

esequiel walker :

it defrost ever 10 to 12 hours if you dont feel comfortable with the sound then by all means contact a technician it may be a simple blade loose or rattling bracket etc

JACUSTOMER-s0e2p2oa- :

Thanks

esequiel walker :

pressing accept is how i get paid thank you

esequiel walker :

good luck
