Issue with my GE Monogram Freezer
/ Fridge Model # XXXXX My wife purchased a lot of food the other day and stuffed the freezer. Woke up this morning with a high temp (10 degrees higher than normal) in the freezer and removed some items thinking this could be to air circulation. Returned home during the evening and noticed temperature rose higher in freezer and refrigerator temp high as well. Current temperatures are 37 Freezer and 54 Fridge - at this time 80% of food has been removed since it is destroyed.
I have tried the following:
turning off and back on from fuse box
a couple of times (let sit 1 minute prior to turning back on)
the digital temperature controls located inside the fridge will not set the temperature - I can adjust both the freezer and fridge temperatures, but after a few seconds they display the actual temperatures of the freezer and fridge
What I have noticed:
The condenser fan runs
The compressor does not appear to run - touch not hot/warm - no humming/vibration
The lights work fine
If the doors remain open I do hear a fan kick on - both freezer and fridge
Chill drawer in fridge - controls do work and fan behind drawer does turn on
Any suggestions on what this might be or next methods in troubleshooting? I would really hate an expensive visit from a technician to diagnose and repair.
I greatly appreciate it.
