My refrigerator fresh food side does not get cold,when I turn the temp control and watch the vent in the left upper corner it does not open, do you think it's the temp control/thernost . The unit is running and the freezer side is cold.
Answer Hello Nate. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The top shelf area of the refigerator is not cooling well. It seems to be cool enough on the bottom half. Is there a fan up top behind the diffuser that may need to be replaced?
You will want to check to make sure that the diffuser is operating properly as the unit does not have a fan behind the diffuser. You will want to check to make sure that there is no ice building in the diffuser area that would cause the unit to not have air flow. Also check to make sure that the fan in the freezer compartment is running.
