Inspect the condenser coil radiator for a layer of lint blocking the airflow through it, and vacuum any debris you find there. Check the fan blade, if you have one, to make sure it's turning. If this does not solve the problem, please let me know.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.


Normally when that is happening the unit is low on freon. You should remove the back panel in the freezer section and inspect the frost pattern on the evaporator coil. See if only part of it is frosty and the rest is bare aluminum with no frost. If that is the case your unit has a leak.


All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
