Is the unit running at all?

If you open the freezer door and look at the rear interior panel do you see any frost or ice on the rear interior panel?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I unplugged the unit yesterday. It was running fine, just the fridge and freezer were not cooling. I removed the freezer back panel to look if there is any ice build up. Thee is none. I removed the back bottom panel and vacummed out the dirt on the coils. There was more than I anticipated. Would you like me to plug the unit back in?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Yes it needs to be plugged in to see if it will now cool properly or not.

So yes please lets plug it back in and we will have to wait several hours to see if it is cooling or not !

I accepted your phone request but it is telling me that the payment has failed!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
strange as I am looking at my bank account online and it shows that the payment went trough
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Then I suggest that you contact Just Answer and talk to them .

As I do not work in a Just Answer office ,I work from my own office in a totally different state then what they are located in !

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok. give me a moment
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

No problem !

Also go ahead and plug the unit back in if you have not done so already.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Great. They say someone will contact me within a few hours. I guess I have to leave it run for a few hours anyway, right?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

yes that is correct.

How dirty was the Condenser coil when you cleaned it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Very dirty. Covered in cat hair. Never thought about it before. Haven't cleaned it in 3 years.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok that could have been enough to make it not cool ,so lets just see what happens after it runs for 6-8 hours.

put a glass of water in the freezer so we can see if it gets cold enough to freeze the water.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK. How should I contact you later, to let you know if it worked or not and once Just Answered has corrected there billing?
