Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a relatively new (3 yrs old) Whirlpool Gold refrigerator (Model GD5RHAXTS01). We unplugged the unit for 3 months while away from the home. Upon our return we plugged in back in and it is not cooling the refrigerator or freezer section nearly well enough. Also, the ice maker is not working. Water is properly flowing to the dispenser on the door and all the lights inside the unit also appear to be working properly. There is frost build up on the back of the freezer (visible from the in

Hello,

If your refrigerator is not cooling, the problem could be \015\012any of the following, follow the steps below one after the order to fix \015\012the problem of your refrigerator not cooling.

First of all, the \015\012most simplest thing to do is to check the temperature.\015\012 It might have happened that the temperature control may have \015\012been turned off unknowingly, which is the reason for the problem. So if \015\012that's the issue, just set the refrigerator at 37 degrees and you are \015\012all set.
\015\012
\015\012Poor coiling leads to a heavy frost build up on the evaporator coils. A \015\012frost build up, specially on the ceiling of the freezer, is a sign of \015\012problem in the self defrosting system or damaged gaskets of the doors. \015\012Therefore, check if the refrigerator is facing such a problem and \015\012defrost the refrigerator. It would not cool well if the defrosting is \015\012not happening properly.
\015\012
\015\012A dirty condenser may be the culprit for your refrigerator not cooling \015\012well. What will happen in case if the condenser is dirty is that it will\015\012 cut off the extra load. That work is done by the thermostat on the side\015\012 of the compressor in case the refrigerator heats more than usual. To \015\012rectify this problem clean the condenser coils using the vacuum cleaner.\015\012 These are either behind or beneath the refrigerator
\015\012In case the refrigerator is not leveled, that too can lead to the \015\012refrigerator not cooling properly, because if the level is not right, \015\012the door of the refrigerator may not close correctly, causing cooling \015\012problems. If this is the case, it might be necessary to ensure that \015\012refrigerator is at level and is slightly tilted back. Do some adjustment\015\012 to get that correct level using a wooden block or see if the screws on \015\012the leveling legs need some looking into.
\015\012
\015\012Check out the door seal. If the door seal is worn out, it will \015\012definitely result in frost build up and that won't allow the door to \015\012close properly, thus the problem of refrigerator not cooling. In \015\012addition to that there can be a problem in the door even if the level \015\012and other things are fine. You would need something to do about the door\015\012 then. May be loosen the hinges and fix them in order to get the correct\015\012 position of the door. Eventually tighten the hinges.
\015\012
\015\012The food and freezer sections will go dysfunctional if the evaporator \015\012fan is not working properly. This is because then there will be no \015\012airflow to the freezer or the other sections of the refrigerator. \015\012Confirm if both the fans are working well by listening to the sound \015\012emitted by them. There is a possibility that one may work and the other \015\012wont. For that, may be you would have to look for a blockage or \015\012something in the one which is not working. Even after doing this you do \015\012not find any problem in the fan, you may need to replace it.

Take\015\012 care.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012

Defrost Problem I have a problem with the defrost unit. I have a Magic Chef side-by-side unit that was purchased in 1995. Regardless of temperature setting, the back of the side freezer unit will eventually frost up. As frost accumulates on the back wall of the freezer, inside temperatures begin to warm up. When the inside termperature approaches 50 degrees I will turn off the refrigerator and thaw out the frost on the back wall of the freezer. Once everything is thawed I turn the refrigerator b

Hi My GE Monogram Fridge isn't cooling very fast. It takes forever for it to get to 37 F. The freezer works fine.
