yes they are
the entire back of the refrigerator is covered, at the bottom it is covered with a cardboard like strip. The compressor is not visible but I can tell you that there is no "humming" like it is working
no it is room temperature
no but I will try it
Okay I did that and the temperature of the refrig registers as 37 and the freezer says high. Before this is was letters so we may be on the right road here.
I think it worked, so far so good. I can hear it running now. Thank you so much! How do I get back to you if it stops working again?
