Customer Question
I have a refrigerator...

I have a refrigerator, model #MTB2456GEB that doesn't seem to be getting cold. i had it shut off for a while and just plugged it back in and i hear a click and a motor runs for a bit, then i hear the click again.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Its about 12 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If its simple

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just want to know if it can b fixed, or do i need to get a new one?
