If you have a fridge with a working light, but no cold air, the first thing you should do is check the temperature setting to make sure it is set properly. Next, you will need to clean the refrigerator part known as the condenser coils. These are located on the back of the fridge, and these coils are a refrigerator part that gets very dirty. Cleaning them can restore lost efficiency, but you will need to disconnect the fridge first before cleaning this set of refrigerator parts. You should also insure that there is a three-inch dead space between the refrigerator and the walls near the unit.
i just bought a used fridge. amana side by side with ice maker. it gets cold. but not cold enough. its not freezing either. i had it plugged in for 2-3 days. i put a thermisatat in it and its reading 58.8.
Thank you very much for putting this information online. I just cleaned my coils and the fridge started running again before I was finished.
