Both sections are warm? Do you have actual inside temps of the fresh food and freezer compartments?

Thank you

What do you think. .
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.

Based on your complaint and replies it sounds like you have a freon or compressor issue. The machine needs to be taken apart. The inside of the freezer. The back panel needs to come out to inspect the frost pattern. You probably don't have one. Check the use and care guide come of these units had a 5-10 year warranty on the sealed system.

I unplug the power cord and plug it back in and it makes a big pop inside the door ... where the display unit is located
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.

Yes, it could be the flap opening and closing. The module power cycles the flap on every re-boot.

Can that be fixed by a repair man ..and wIll it cast a lot .
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 1 year ago.

Yes, by a factory authorized repairman. Check the manual about the extended sealed system warranty. If you're out of that, yes from $5-800. We work on the honor system here @ Just Answers.
