Customer Question
Fran Saunders, we have...

Fran Saunders, we have a Westinghouse mastermind about 8 years old. Freezer is working but fridge is only at 13 degrees. Fan is working, have tried various control settings but to no avail. Food in freezer seems to be on a slow defrost. Is it worth trying to get it fixed? if so how expensive would it be as compared to paying for a new one. Would have thought 8 years is not really old

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! if the compressor is running, you likely have a sealed system refrigeration issue that will not likely be worth repairing on an 8 year old product. Is the compressor running?
