Why is my side by side refrigerator not cooling?
If the refrigerator is not cold enough there might be something caught in the condenser fan motor blade, or the condenser fan motor might be defective. The condenser fan motor draws air over the condenser coils to cool them. The condenser fan motor is located underneath the refrigerator near the back.
Why would my refrigerator stop cooling and then start working again?
If the thermostat is adjusted incorrectly, the fridge will turn off and turn on again when the temperature increases. The compressors are responsible for providing power for the cooling process. In this case, it is suggested that you lower the thermostat setting to ensure the compressor keeps working properly.
