What was the original problem that made you replace the thermostat.
Also, how long ago was that?
it was replaced about 2 months ago and it was doing the same thing. it was in the house when i bought it and i have not had any trouble until recently. neither the refrigerator or the freezer is maintaing the coolness. I have also had the colils cleaned on a regular basis.
Is there any frost built up on the back panel on the inside of the freezer? Is the fan in the freezer running?
part of the recent problem is the refrigerator seems to run a lot. There is no frost built up in the freezer and the fan is running.
Do you have any ideas on what it could be/
How old is this unit?
I was looking at the breakdown and there are a couple of things that could cause the unit to run longer times. I need you to verify that the compressor, the fan by the compressor and the fan in the freezer are running. Can you handle that?
it was here when I moved in my house and that was seven years ago.
I can date it with the serial number if you would like. Just post the serial number for me. Just let me know about those 3 things I asked you to check so we can get you going again.
i have part of a number and can not read the rest of it.P119651. hope this helps.
Your refrigerator is almost 12 years old. The life expectancy of the unit is around 11 so the breakdowns are right on time.
Did you get a chance to make sure the compressor and both fans are running for me?
They seem to be running and i can hear them. The icemaker is not working as the ice is melting.
Do you think it is the compressor/
Ok. If there is no frost on the coils in the freezer and the fans are both running then you are looking at a compressor issue OR a low freon issue.
Both of those things requires a professionally licensed tech to repair.
The freon is the most likely problem because you said it seemed to be running longer and longer.
This could indicate a small leak in the coil system.
Thank you so much, this gives me something to go on. i will call a repair person in the morning. Thanks a lot for your help.
No problem. I wish it was something more simple for you.
