Question and Answers

Q:

fridge temp 55 degrees!

A:

Thanks for providing that model number.

When the refrigerator door was left open overnight, it could have caused a build-up of frost on the evaporator that is blocking the air flow through the refrigerator. I recommend that you check the inside back wall at the bottom of the freezer for frost or ice build-up. If you see frost in this area, I recommend that you unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover in front of the evaporator (bottom part if the back wall inside the freezer). You will likely see if the evaporator fins covered with ice and frost. Use an air gun or hair dryer on a low heat setting to manually defrost this area. Be prepared for water to overflow the defrost drain pan under the freezer if there is a large amount of ice on the evaporator. Once you defrost this are, reassemble the refrigerator and see if the fresh food section will cool properly.

If you still have problems or see no apparent signs of excessive frost on the evaporator, then you could have a problem with the air circulation through the refrigerator. Check to see if you detect any air flow through the damper vent at the top part of the wall between the freezer and refrigerator. Frost could also form in this area and block the vent or prevent the damper from opening to provide cool air into the fresh food compartment. If you detect this type of problem, you can try to manually defrost this area. If that does not help, then you will likely need to have a service technician diagnose and repair the refrigerator.

Q:

Which orifice is the LP orifice, #43 or #55?

A:

The #43 orifice is the Natural gas orifice. I added the instructions below on how to convert to LP so you will need to reverse the procedure to convert it back to Natural gas. The #55 is the LP orifice.

Q:

My freezer on my refrigerator is working but the refrigerator is not. It will not go below 55 degrees.

A:

When the refrigerator is warm and the freezer is cold it is an air circulation problem. The evaporator coil that furnishes the cold air is probably frosted up and the fan can’t blow the cold air into the refrigerator.

You can remove the rear panel in the freezer and defrost the coil with a hair dryer. You will also need to remove the icemaker. There are 2 screws above the ice mold holding the icemaker in. This will probably make the refrigerator cold for 4-5 days until the coil frosts up again.

The refrigerator has a defrost system that consists of a heater, defrost control, and a defrost thermostat that defrosts the evaporator coil every 6-8 hours. Something in this system has probably failed. This will cause the coil to frost over.

We can troubleshoot the defrost system if you have a volt/ohm meter and would like to.
