Have a bultin subzero fridge. All the edges are very hot. Th inside temperature is 57.
Ddi clean the coils today after owning the fridge 7 years, had never done it before.
The temperature is sill very hot. What to do?

Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service.


When you cleaned the coils did you notice if the fan was operating?




Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No, the fan above is not operating. Should it be spinning?

We saw no movement.

Yes that is what is causing the heat. If you can get a fan blowing up there that will help. Replace that fan motor, but make sure that once you get air circulating it's cooling normally.
