Why is my refrigerator not cooling enough?
My LG model 795.7103 is 6 years old, and was working perfectly until 4 days ago.
The temp is set for 40 degrees-frig/zero degrees freezer, but now cools to 50 frig/35 freezer. It's as if it's stuck on defrost.
A name-brand repairman didn't find an immediate cause, even after removing freezer drawers and back-of-frig panels, and used his hand-held tester, and was on the phone with someone else much of the time.
The coils are free of ice. The compressor is running, and the air coming out is cold, but not icy cold.
The refrigerator has never been moved, so I'm doubting a seal broke.
He said he was unsure of the problem, and would have to open the closed system to look for leaks.
Parts and labor could cost up to $1500 and 3 trips to my house.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
