Hello~

My Kenmore refrigerator model 363.8798784 isn't cooling enough to keep food from spoiling.  The freezer compartment is keeping things frozen and making ice cubes properly.  The frige is running 24/7.  I did use a duster and cleaned out a bunch of dust from underneath.  I have heard the compressor cycle on since dusting but the frige still isn't cooling.  I have heard what sounded like ice melting but haven't removed the back panel or seen any puddles on the floor.  I haven't any experience with frige maintenance and/or repair so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

jb9 ;)

This is a G.E. frig , remove the rear panel on the inside of the freezer and see what the frost pattern looks like, something has the air flow blocked to the food compartment, you might have a defrost problem or you have a damper that is stuck closed not letting air into the food side...

pegi, someone told me this has an electronic damper do you know if that is correct? or is it manual and it may just be iced up? thanks  RR

GE-built top freezer with the evaporator that looks like two springs - I believe GE haven't made any refrigeration for $ear$ for at least 10 years, probably longer.

Mechanical damper on this one.  As Pegi says, check frost pattern and stuck damper.

Mad Mac....Pray to God he's out there....somewhere.
