gst85 :

Customer:

some of them are fully frozen like seafood, meets, veggies but liquid stuff like otter pops are ice cream don't freeze

Customer:

yes i can hear the fan


 

Customer:

actually the items are getting soft in there now


 

gst85 :

okay open the freezer.can you see any frost forming at the wall?


 

Customer:

no frost nor ice but it is quite cold in there like a fridge on high


 

Customer:

if i press on the reset button of teh ice maker, they will fall in teh tray but not automatically.


 

gst85 :

ok so if the freezer is not that cold then your fridge section will NOT cool as well either.can you pull the fridge forward to just enough to access the compressor?

Customer:

it is very heavy,I'll try


 

gst85 :

take your time please.


 

Customer:

ok it's pulled out - the back is completely covered


 

gst85 :

okay.remove the lowr cover?


 

gst85 :

lower


 

Customer:

there 2 vents at the bottom the freezer one blows out coolish air and teh fridge one warm air


 

Customer:

ok


 

Customer:

gst85 :

ok so you see one short vent and the other is long.correct

gst85 :

Customer:

Customer:

yes sheet metal covers


 

gst85 :

ok great.now fan you see a fan running next to the compressor?


 

Customer:

yes it is running smoothly


 

gst85 :

Customer:

it's very hot


 

Customer:

the linoleum under the compressor is brownish too


 

gst85 :

Customer:

Customer:

warranty is over unfortunately


 

gst85 :

that is correct.

gst85 :
Customer:

Customer:
gst85 :

what will need to have this done by an actual appliance technician.
