I can get the thermometers but not for a few hours. Is it all right if I get them and reply later tonight or early tomorrow morning?
If I put the thermometer in a glass of water (in the fridge) will it not take a long time for the water and consequently the temperature on the thermometer to adjust to the temperature within the refrigerator?
OK..........got the thermometers, and here are your answers:
The setting on the inside of the Fridge is 0/37
Centrigrade.... 1 0r 2 degrees ( Fahrenheit 27/28 degrees)
Centigrade ... 12 degrees (Fahrenheit 52 degrees)
Hope this tells you something.
OK...... I got some help and have done what you asked.
The coils are frost free.......... no frost that I can see.
I am starting to put it back together so if you want me to do any thing else, please let me know asap.
Thanks very much.
I pulled out the fridge and I vacuumed the coils under it.......they were packed with lint.... and I really do keep a clean home....lols.....
Thanks very much ....... I vacuumed it several hours ago and guess what......... the alarm has not gone off again.
I think you did it.........! Thanks.
It has started alarming again.........but nothing like before....... it does it a couple of times a day now...
I am getting help to take the fridge out so I can see the fan and also it will allow me to better clean the coils under the unit.
I believe that when I have thoroughly cleaned it, it may do the trick.
I am not a handy man but you managed to motivate me to stretch and for that I am grateful.
Will let you know how it all turns out.
I don't want to take up any more of your time. Just know I appreciate your help.
I pulled out the fridge, the fan is running, and I cleaned the coils THOROUGHLY.
Unfortunately, it is still alarming so I am now going to call a Service person. I assume you are in the States and unable to help.
From what you have said, it is either low on freon on it's the compressor.
Hey man, I tried!
I have had terrible service from all three stainless steel Kitchen Aid units (Stove, Dishwasher, and Fridge) I bought eight years ago. Thank God I took out an extended warranty when I first bought them.
If this keeps up, Miele is in my future. Cheers and thanks again.
