Customer Question
THE REFRIDG PORTION ISN'T WORKING...
THE REFRIDG PORTION ISN'T WORKING . TURN IT UP TO 10 BUT DOESn't go on .
turn the freezer up and the fan starts up . I've dusted the cooling grid but no effect. don't know if a switch is shot or something else. It was new in '96 I think. Had temp control replaced in '04 and defrost timer in '05. Any suggestions would help.
