The mini fridge does not cool. This fridge doesnt use any fans so nothing to check there. The compressor seems to be awfully hot (although I dont know if thats normal) you wont born your hand but it would be fairly unpleasant to keep touching it. none of the tubes are cool to the touch. everything seems to be warm. Do i need to add new refrigerant and if so can I do it my self - i.e. can I buy the container and fill it up?

I have a Fisher & Paykel fridge/freezer model N500B a CFC model with the freezer below the fridge. We have started to get a frost biuld up at the top of the back wall of the fridge compartment.

I have a Kenmore side by side that is not cooling the way it was yesterday. The fan & compressor are working but its not blowing the cold air into the fridge or freezer. In the freezer, I hear as the water drips from my food melting what sounds like water dripping onto a hot iron. Any idea where I start to fix this? It all started when I was trying to figure out why my ice maker wasn't getting water.


It sounds like you are refering to the defrost cycle. This would make the noise you hear. Try cleaning the condensor coils and the fan that is in the bottom where the compressor is. This may help. let me know. have a great day. ... GE J Series 18.2 cu. ft. Top Freezer No-Frost Refrigerator TBX18AABWW
