Thermostat might be stuck. My fridge stopped working recently and I hit the thermostat control a sharp blow with the handle of a soft-handled screwdriver and it started to work again.

I had to hit it several times over the next few days to keep it going until the new thermostat arrived but since it was delivered the fridge has been working normally...

did you try plugging something else into that plug to see if it works or is breaker off

It is running . give it a few more hours - you are looking for a freezer temp of around zero degrees. Congrats - you fixed it!

The "R" in your given serial # should be a number. Assuming it is a 0, your model was manufactured either in January of 1976 or December of 2010. You will have to judge by appearance of it is 1976 or 2010.

Freezer defrost coil is open and in need of replacement.

Go to attached site for part number and replacement/repair. If you get number of part, check with ebay for a cheaper price. Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts

Probably so. I would be looking at compressor and the relay / overload that plugs into the side of it. Hopefully you are lucky and it's just that relay / overload that's bad and not the compressor or a control Board. Be sure to unplug unit before servicing. Once you remove relay / overload from compressor, shake it vigorously. If it rattles, it's bad.

Front wheels should screw in and out for adjustment purposes!!!!!!!!!!!! And with that degree of tilt you might just have to resort to shimming so be ready.

Possibly leaking coolant.

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly but shut off with each defrost cycle.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

the reason the outer side of the door seal area is getting hot is the compressor is over heating, probably the condenser fan motor to your compressor is bad.
It should be a little warm but not hot. they don't use heaters anymore ( some older models still use heaters) around the doors, instead they use the condenser coils to remove condensation and moister, you might want to check your condenser coils on the bottom or back of fridge to see if they need cleaning
If the condenser coils/condenser fan are all plugged up they need cleaning and/or the condenser may fail or has failed..

The ones that use an electric heater will have an "energy saver" switch that will turn it off.: God is the reason I give you free advice so God is good!

Hello Ron Carlson

Page 6 of 6...

Pretty straight forward refrigerator!

Although I agree with the first answer you got from Todd Marr...a lot of available volunteers here have been around a lot of blocks...
Can call out the Whirlpool & Frigidaire units you share parts with... and how to very cheaply you can
test various parts to bring you to your very quick victory...

I'm just saying, ice-maker, defrost issues, warm refrigerator side... Fast frost build-up... puddles?

If you'll pardon the pun ...
