Hi, how long have you run the refer? and does the freezer begin to get cold? do you see any yellow residue by the burner assy? thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have been running for 30 minutes. No yellow deposits that I noticed. The inside of the frig. smells like amonia. No cooling in freezer

thanks, unfortunately, the smell of ammonia tells me that the cooling unit is leaking.. shut the refer off....................this means that to remedy your issue, you will need to replace the cooling unit. please get back to me for clarification if necessary...........Michael

what do you mean "replace cooling unit"?
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 1 year ago.
Hi,, the cooling unit is a major part of the refrigerator that creates cooling. If you look at the back of the refer, you see all of the piping this contains the refrigerant, and unfortunately it is leaking. the replacement requires the refer to be removed, and the piping (cooling unit) replaced. this is the time to consider a new refer as the cost is aprox. 60% +- the cost of new,

Why does it smell like ammonia?
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 1 year ago.
Your refrigerator is an absorbtion unit, which uses ammonia and a couple of other chemicals as the refrigerant
