sorry friend! you cannot do so, and do not try it also because due to continous running of freezer, the thermostart will not work and your compressor may get damaged......................have a nice day :-)

Hi, If you had ice, there is a drain plugged in the freezer. If you had a frost build up, there is a problem with the automatic defrost.

I can help in either case. Please let me know if you need more assistance.

Your temperature is probably set to high turn it down to about 4 for a couple hours and then back up like 7 dont turn both controls up all the way or it will freeze up on you. You could even unplug it for an hour and let it thaw out then turn it back on the freezer to 7 and the fridge like halfway or a little more than half.... see if this works for you...........Have a good week end! : )

The factory presets your temperatures to the MID / MID setting of 0ºF for the freezer.

Nor-Lake Freezer... | Answered on Apr 23, 2009

The defrost timer is normally located in the area of the temperature controls. There is a clutch head knob on the timer which can be rotated clockwise very slowly until a click is heard. Wait 30 minutes and defrost should take place in that time period. If defrost does occur and the system does not restart cooling, rotate the knob more and you will hear a second click and the compressor should start .
If the system restarts in the cooling mode in 18-22 minutes the defrost timer is good and the problem is more than likely in the defrost heater circuit.

you are leaving the door open to long

Nor-Lake Norlake... | Answered on Apr 07, 2009

did you clean out the drain pan underneith the unit?

Nor-Lake Norlake... | Answered on Apr 05, 2009

The door frame heater is probably damaged and grounded. Unfortunately, it is still energized causing less than the entire heater being utilized which will cause an extremely hot condition. I would look at replacing it. It is a pain to do but with some patience, it can be done.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Depends on the product you want to keep in the freezer. Usually you want to try and stay between 0 and +10 degrees for most items. Ice Cream must be -10 degrees minimum. Any warmer and it won't keep. Hope this helps.

Good Luck

the refrigerator temperature is determined on the freezer setting if you look at the thermostat for the freezerusually has #1 to 8 or close to it. nextto that is another kbob or lever that sets the air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator . i usually prefer to set both knobs in the middle for example on 1 to 8 set on 5 the other knob will have letters a-b-up to e set that one on 3 which will close the damper to about 50% if you need the freezer colder set the air flow knob to say B that should solve your problem.

Have you cleaned your condenser coils lately? It is very common for these coils to accumulate dirt, and hair until it will not reject the heat from the unit. You can also check to see if your compessor is even running at all.

Nor-Lake Norlake... | Answered on Feb 18, 2009

sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.

if both sides are hot it sounds as if the compressor isnt running. pull the refig away from the wall and remove the cardboard cover the compressor is the black bowling ball loking thing that you see. fell to see if it is running should have vibration and making a humming sound. if its not running listen for 3-5 minutes to see if you are hearing an intermittent humming and clicking noise. this would indicate a bad start relay for the compressor. if the compressor is running then you mostlikely have a freon problem which will require a qualified technician to repair. good luck and thanks for using fixya Peyton..
