I have a fridigare fridge 2 yrs old. It works

I have a fridigare fridge 2 yrs old. It works great and keeps food cold, BUT everytime I open the fridge door or the freezer door, it kicks on the compressor and it runs for 20-30 minutes. even if i only open the door for 1 second i live alone and do not leave my fridge door open for long periods of time. Lately the compressor kicks on about every hour or so and runs for 20-30 minutes. Repairman said that he light inside the fridge heats up the box and compressor has to stabilize the temp but i only open for like one or two seconds PLUS there is no light in the freezer and it does the same thing when door is opened for only 1 or 2 seconds. Do not think it was designed to run this way plus it is annoying and probably wasting power any ideas

FRIDGE AND FREEZER IS COLD AT THE BOTTOM AND WARM AT THE TOP


It is a thermostat problem. It can be fixed but is sometimes cheaper to buy a new one.

Frezzer works but the fridge does not keep any food cold, food is beung throw away


If the appliance is nofrost and new keep the air outlets open do not put food infront of them.this can dramatically effect the performance.If it is an old appliance which runs for a while correctly but this happens check the flap is functioning correctly.You can do it by open the fridge door press the door switch button put your hand to the air outlet if it air comes after a while it funcitons if not that means flap is malfunctioned or blocked.empty the appliance leave doors open for 12 hrs. restart if not function no way change it.

Fridge keeps on freezing everything inside of it


This refrigerator only has one thermostat located in the fresh food compartment it is designed to activate the sealed system (cooling) until it reaches approximately 37 deg f in the fresh food compartment. The damper controls how fast the cold air can move from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment. Allowing you to control the temp in the freezer by controlling the flow of cold air to the thermostat.

You have one of two problems.
#1 your thermostat is no longer opening when it achieves set temp. fix = replace thermostat pn 61005798 $35
#2 your damper arm or assemblie has broken. Fix = Replace damper or broken arm and actuator.
damper assembly pn12001377 $44
damper actuator pn 61002000 $2
damper arm pn 61001999 $2

Freezer works great, as it should, but fridge is only keeping items room temp. I have the setting at the coldest setting: #7. What is wrong?


Here's what I did, I defrosted! I found out that the fridge temp is monitored and maintained by the freezer. Because we had a power outage one night, my freezer thawed while we all slept and then when power came back on, freezer re-froze but this cause an ice build up on the vent on the back wall of the freezer. Well, ice must have been in one (or more) vents, causing blocked air flow in my top half of the refrigerator. I turned the dial in the freezer to "off" which also shuts down power to the fridge half. I then unplugged the refrigerator, hauled all my food items into coolers, opened the freezer door and refrigerator doors and left them open for a little over six hours. I took advantage of this empty fridge and freezer and wiped everything down. After this time frame passed, I plugged the fridge back in, turned the freezer dial to my preferred freezer temp, and wah-lah! Within two hours I had a cold fridge and solid ice cubes in the freezer. I then put all my food items back into their appropriate compartments, and went to work. Bear in mind, a total 24-hour period is needed for the fridge to re-set itself, but still, after two hours the fridge was noticeably cold. Who knew, besides our parents' generation: DEFROST!

Your condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system may be plugged with dust. The condenser is more than likely located in back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel. Remove the panel and clean it out. Reinstall the panel after you have cleaned the condenser.

Check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If there is frost buildup on the back wall it indicates that there is a problem in the defrost circuit.

Note: The proper term is "More mature individual" , not old.
