I have a GE refrigerator roughly 10 years old. Am away from

I have a GE refrigerator roughly 10 years old. Am away from home so I can't tell you the model. It has verticle doors with freezer on left and refrigerator on right. As of 2 days ago it began to have trouble keeping things cold. Still somewhat cold, working about 50% but the ice cream has melted. We maxed the cold settings for both the freezer and fridge but that only improved things just a little bit. Is there something we can do apart from replacing a compressor of buying a new model?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: Please see my initial comments.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: I could depending on the difficulty. I'm not a mechanic, though.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: Not unless you have any more questions.

I have a Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model

I have a Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model PLHS267ZAB4. The refrigerator runs constantly and the refrigerator side is cool, the freezer section does not freeze. The following is what I have done so far.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 2002 is my estimate. condenser runs warm, condenser fan runs, condenser coils have been cleaned, evaporator fan runs, the defrost cycle on the evaporator coils is operational. There is continuity on the heater coil, I've removed the panel and have seen the coils defrost - although it really does not get cold enough to warrant a defrost. The thermostat control appears operational - when you turn it off, the system turns off, then you turn it up - either the fridge control or the freezer control, the compressor and compressor fan turns on. I'm stumpedJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: yesJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I've given you as much testing and items I have done.

Hi, I have a side-by-side refrigerator (20,22,25). The right-side refrigerator portion is not cool enough, despite setting the control all the way to 9. It's only slightly cool, but it's spoiled dairy products already. The unit is 10 years old. I've cleaned the back grill so it's now free of dust, but it still does not get cooler. What can I do?JA: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?Customer: Already stated that above.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: GE 20, 22 or 25. Do I need to be more specific?JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: If possible.... my husband is a handyman.

Tyler. Got a call from a lady with a Samsung refrigerator,

Hey, Tyler. Got a call from a lady with a Samsung refrigerator, bottom freezer that she says is frosting around the left vent in the refrigerator compartment. Hers is an RB215ACWP. I understand that this happens a lot on Samsungs, and there are different modification kits. I don't know if one of them fits hers. How, in general, do you know if a manufacturer puts out a modification kit for a common problem on a unit? And do you know if there is one for this particular model Samsung?
