hi ,is there any ice build up in the freezer wall
if the temperature is not holding then this tells me that your compressor is not pumping as well as it supposed to .could also be over heating ,you will need to check the condenser fan to make sure it is on
How can I chck the condenser fan?
can you pull the fridge from the wall
okay once you do ,you will need to remove the back lower panel ,
it has screws holding it
i took them off already
can you do it ,or will it take you some time
okay great ,no can you see the fan running
I see the fan but it is not running
can you hear the compressor humming
it must be on defrost
how do I change that?
you can try to adjust the thermostat
to a higher number
I tried that before
open the freezer ,tell me if you hear the fan running
no I can hear in the fridge portion not in the freezer
okay ,feel the compressor to see if it is somewhat hot or warm
no it is not hot or warm
it feels like it has not been running?
okay it may have gone bad
can it be replaced and how much does a new one cost?
yes it can ,a compressor job can be a bit expensive ,it can also be a bad start device ,you may wanna call a few companies ,to get a few a quotes
how expensive can it be
a ruff idea ,id say anywhere from100 to 300 .but every company will chagre differently
if i have been helpful to you pressing accept pays me
have a good day
