My Refrigerator Light Comes On, But There Is No Cold Air

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.

Thank you very much for putting this information online. I just cleaned my coils and the fridge started running again before I was finished.
