Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. The evaporator has a build up of ice and the freezer will need to be defrosted. If you unplug the freezer and leave the doors open for at least 24 hours to let it completely defrost. Clean the inside of the fridge and freezer after the defrost process. Be sure not to store items that block the vent.
No it does not. Thank you for pointing that out but the same has happened even though it is only a fridge. The evaporator has iced up. Do the defrosting and cleaning and all will be well. Be sure not to store items in front of the vent that may block or restrict and be sure the door is not left open for long periods of time and it will be a very long time before you will have to do this again.
Very good. I will certainly work.
What setting do you have it on?
The electronic readout at the top says 22 deg C.
There is no cool air coming in from the vent? How long has it been on?
If you remove the panel to access the evaporator is it still iced?
No ice on it but it is getting cool? How about the compressor, is it really hot?
Unfortunately there is a very slow coolant leak and it is quite low. You may be able to find a tech you will recharge it for you but it will not hold and will only get worse. Repair and recharging it will be quite expensive. It is not a do it yourself project to do that.
I am very sorry to say yes.
You are very welcome/
