Question about Heartland Refrigerators
The temperature will go down to 35 degrees the rise to over 45 degrees. Three days ago the refrigerator rose to over 55 degrees. We emptied it, tuned it off for 24 hours then turned it back on, this is what Heartland told us to do last time this happened. Now it seems to stay between 35 and 45 degrees. Is this an acceptable range?

How long does this temperature issue last? When you notice this issue how long does this sit at the hire temp, 1 hour? I am trying to understand why Heartland/Marvel would ask you to turn it off. Please let me know. Thanks

Look at following areas for the model number

35 minutes would be considered nominal. That is the amount of time needed to heat up the cooling coils behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment, and then allow it to drain the condensate water out the drain.
The defrost cycle is made up of 2 parts.
The first part involves shutting all fans and compressor off, and turning on the heater/heaters mounted on the bottom of the cooling coil to above freezing. About 10 to 15 minutes.
The second half occures when a defrost thermostat mounted on the top of that coil senses the coil is above freezing. It cuts the power to the heaters, and lets the system just idle, while the water is allowed to drain out of the drain.
If that tstat is working properly, the food temperature is affected slightly but never to an above freezing condition.
The thermostat is a small 1" round disk clipped to the top of the coil.
Only one possibility, but that tstat could be hanging allowing the freezer coil compartment to reach a very high temperature. If so, it needs replaced.
You should also check to see if both fans and compressor start running as soon as the cycle is done.

have you done a continuity test on the t-stat and the heater also when you did replace the fan did you assure that you defrosted the airport holes that go from the freezer to the fridge area lastly if the t-stat and the heater check out to be working properly then you might have a sensor problem but first check out the tstat this is usually the first thing that goes on fridgerators please remember to rank how this opinion helped in your appliance situation and if i can aswer anything futher please message me back thank you again
