Hello....this is Andrew, sorry to hear about your fridge problem. Are you running your fridge on gas or electric and have you tried both?

If it's not cooling on either gas or electric, check the coils on the cooling unit at the back of the fridge and see if they are hot to the touch. If they're hot but no cooling inside fridge refer and freezer compartments.....the coolant solution isn't circulating, the top freezer may get a little cold, but the bottom refer section won't.....which means the cooling unit has gone bad. Sometimes you can even smell an ammonia smell inside the fridge, or see a yellow powder substance at the back near the gas burner box and coils.

Are you getting my messages?

Thanks for using JustAnswer and let me know if you have any other questions.
