Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Can you hear a fan running in the freezer section? Can you see any frost on the back wall inside the freezer?
What is the control on the left set at, the one that is for the freezer? That needs to be set all the way to the lowest setting so it opens the air baffle. It only controls air flow. If it is way up, it will keep the air mostly in the freezer.
Remove the rear panel from inside the freezer, that coil is frozen up behind it. Thawing that coil will restore cooling. If it freezes up again, one of the defrost components have failed. Let me know what you find.
Okay, if you melted the ice from behind the panel, it should allow air flow into the fresh food section. Keep me posted.
Thank you, ***** ***** sounds like you have your hands full! Your refrigerator uses a mechanical timer, shown as number 6 in the diagram at the link below. With the freezer coLd, insert a screwdriver through the hole in the control box (number 1) so that you can manually turn the defrost timer. With the refrigerator running, turn the defrost timer clockwise until it clicks and the refrigerator clicks off. Once it has clicked off, listen in the freezer section for noises like cracking, sizzling, popping, etc for about 10-15 minutes. Any noises at all when you turn it into a defrost cycle?
