Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

WK3000-7 yrs old. Stays on for very long time,but still maintains cool cellar. Ices on outside, but ice melts when unit shuts off. I've just cleaned the outside (exit) cooling vanes with vacuum cleaner. Don't know if coolant has leaked. Can this unit be repaired?


Answers :

Hi!!\015\012
\015\012Check your temp. settings and that the fan in the freezer/refrigerator is working, if items are working, (normal settings are about 1/2 way of the dial range). then your problem is a Refrigerant leak. When refrigerant level is low, the lines start to freeze but as soon as the compressor stops, the ice will melt. When there is a problem with the.defrost timer or the defrost coil, Ice builds up and takes up to a day with the fridge open to melt.\015\012
\015\012The repair of a leak in the system should be performed by a qualified HVAC Technician.\015\012
\015\012I suggest to call and ask how much would it be to repair the leak, then you decide if it is worth fixing or just replace it.\015\012
\015\012Good Day!!

I found the refrigerator not cooling. I unplugged the unit, vacuumed the coils, plugged unit back in. The unit began to cool and kept it's temperature for 18 hours.

I have a Vintage Keeper Odyssey wine cellar 250 bought new on 10/2002. Though the cooling fins have been kept clean, the cooling unit can only reach the 57 degree set point on cool nights and during the day can only reach 66 degrees. Given the age of the cooling unit, could it be low on refrigerant and if so is it advisable to have it recharged or is it better to replace it ?


Have it checked on how much refrigerant yo have left before deciding on the purchase of a new unit or recharging it. The cost may be far and from there you can decide on which is more practical. It may also just be a faulty thermostat. ... Vintage Keeper Refrigerators

Refrig cooling Unit loosing cooling in freezer and most likely main compartment too. No iceing up, coils were dirty, cleaned them. It does cool correctly for a while then stops blowing cold air before everything is frozen. Compressor seems to be ok. I think is may be a temp sensor. Old unit, maybe 15 years old, used in the garage for extra storage. Unless it's a cheap part I don't see the use in repairing it. Your thoughts?
