I have a Kenmore model 111.73928711. About every 6 weeks or so it will start making a noise louder and louder. Then the refrigerator compartment will stop cooling but the freezer works fine. I can unplug for about 36 hours and then it works fine.

Any ideas?

Here's the problem. Daewoo appliances are manufactured in South Korea. They haven't been as popular Samsung or LG and there is no service information available. Samsung and LG are the two worst manufacturers of refrigerators so it doesn't surprise me about Daewoo. "Makes a noise that gets louder" doesn't tell me anything. I can't hear it in Salt Lake. LOL It sounds like maybe a compressor. ?? An intermittent problem that shows up every 6 weeks is going to be hard to diagnose.
