Originally it wasn’t cooling properly. The fridge would be probably around 50 degrees and the freezer 40. I adjusted temperature gauges and everything, nothing really changed. I had a repair guy come and he called in advance and said to plug it in, then it was working fine. He also said this fridge has problems with getting stuck in defrost mode and to unplug it for a while and plug it back in if it happens again.
2 weeks later it goes out again. This time the freezer is like 75-85(WELL beyond room temperature) degrees and the fridge is room temperature. I unplugged it and used my spare mini fridge. I waited a week and plugged it back in and nothing. The lights come on but the temperature is not dropping. Every few seconds it attempts to start up, then clicks off. I changed to a different outlet on a separate circuit and it doesn’t even try to come on now, it just does the clicking.
On the first outlet, the temperature gauge in the fridge would occasionally blink all 5 settings. On the second outlet, I’m not even getting that.
I have no idea where to begin on this. It came with my lease but they will not pay for repairs. This fridge seems uncommon and horrible reviews so I’m considering tossing it out, but it also seems like the former tenant bought it and never used it, because the back isn’t dirty whatsoever and the freezer still had the package of instructions and the ice cube tray in it.
Does anyone have any suggestions before I give up and find a new fridge?
