Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
Is it the refrigerator section that's 45°? Or is it the freezer section? Also is the fan running in the freezer? Do you see any Frost on the back wall inside the freezer behind your food? Sorry for all questions we need to get as much information as we can so we can make a determination of what your issue may be. Thanks, Bryan
You asked: Is it the refrigerator section that's 45°? Yes, it is the refrigerator.
The freezer seems to be working just fine. I am at work but since the freezer seems to be fine, I am guessing that the fan is running in the freezer. I also hear the refrigerator fan running.
Your asked: Do you see any Frost on the back wall inside the freezer behind your food? I don't know since I am at work. If there can be a connection between the freezer and the refrigerator maintaining the proper temperature, that's a bit surprising to me.
Bryan: My husband is pretty handy but he seemed daunted by the prospect of taking off the WHOLE back of the inside freezer panel. He could only see screws on the front and wasn't sure exactlly how to go about it.
He DID say that he could see coils in the back through a window that was about 1 inch high and 18 iinces across and they all seemed evenly distributed with frost. IF frost is the problem and NOT a Freon leak, can something be done without calling in a technician?
Bryan: Thank you for your patient help. It is getting late and I have to go home and fix supper. Whether it is a defront issue or a Freon issue, either way it sounds like we need a repair person to work on this refrigerator. I do accpet your answer and hope I am only chareged the original agreed on price of $35, especailly since getting a technician in will cost a lot of money, but thanks to you for the information and assistance.
Be Well. Rebecca
