Hey there, my freezer is working, but fridge I would say hardly at all. This fridge worked perfectly last summer, then was off for 6 months, and now nothing. Any ideas? Freezer works great, but fridge not so much.

I dropped the fridge stat to off, then ranked up and I hear a small tstat click after ramping back up past 1 or 2, but not much after that.

It’s worth a decent tip for me to get this sorted swiftly. Thx in advance for your help.

Thanks for the late night response, i Thought I heard it working, but on closer inspection it wasn’t. I poked the blade with a stick a few times and it spun up like a champ. In theory, should that resolve my issue?

Thanks Rick. The fan has been working since “jumpstarting” however, the freezer is warmer today. Not sure why. Hope I can get this fridge back on track. Anything else I should be checking?

You haven't fixed anything so it will stop again. Best to start with the obvious before looking for other problems.
