Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Refridgerator does not get cold, maybe needs freon charge or coooland recharge


Answers :

Hi,

If your refrigerator cooling doesn't seem to be working well, and you have no idea what to look for in troubleshooting your problem, there are some things you can do to try to figure out your problem without paying a serviceman to come into your home.
Freezing

Most new refrigerators come with automatic defrosters. Although this is a standard feature the drain hole in the defrosting assembly can get clogged with debris, lime, or even ice. If this happens the defrost will not work and there will be a build-up of ice in your freezer that begins to block the freon from flowing properly and causing heat to react improperly and cause your refrigerator to stop cooling.
Freon

Freon systems in a refrigerator are closed systems but on occasion you may need a recharge. Refrigerators use R-134a freon, just like in an automobile. The old R-12 freon is no longer available, so if you have an older model of refrigerator you will not be able to obtain the freon, and it will be recommended that you replace that refrigerator.
Seals

The seals that are on the door of the refrigerator and freezer can dry rot with time. When you begin to see the seals cracking or warping, if your refrigerator opens more easily than before, or if you see the the door does not close fully without pushing on the door then the gaskets around the doors will need to be replaced. They are held in place by clips and the replacement is an easy fix.
Holes in Lines

Let's face it, many people find ice in their freezer or the back of their refrigerator and will try some self-help without knowledge. They will grab a knife or fork and start chipping away at the ice. This is extremely dangerous. There is a great risk of puncturing a hole in the freon lines by stabbing at the ice. Since freon has the purpose of cooling most ice collects the thickest on the inside of the walls with the freon lines right behind the plastics. A better method of removing the ice is to empty your refrigerator, turn it off and leave the door open. If you want to speed up the process you can turn on a blow dryer and aim it at the edges of the ice. If you aim at the edges you will warm up the ice and create warm water which will flow down and help to separate the ice panel from the wall.
Uneven Refrigerator

If a refrigerator is not even on the floor it may not close properly. Rock your refrigerator and see if it seems to topple from one foot to another. The feet on a refrigerator can be adjusted by screwing in or out and leveling each foot individually until they are all even.
Non-Problem Warming

If your home is hot your refrigerator will work harder. If you put a lot of food in your refrigerator and freezer, your coolant will have to work harder, and it will seem to take longer to cool. It is just that there is a lot of food that is trying to freeze or maintain cool temperatures.


Good luck and Thanks

Wheelshot, We have a Sub-Zero 532. A couple of days ago, we discovered that the refrigerator side was only reading 60 degrees. I deiced the condenser coil behind the back panel, checked the compressor and fan for the ref side and they are both running. I also tested the 'cold control' and it would turn on and off. However, the temperature will still only get down to around 50 degrees. Could it need a recharge? What kind of freon does this model need?

I have a Danby Millenium wine refrigerator - Model # DWC044BLP. It no longer gets cold inside...however, the back of the fridge does get cold - the tank (that I assume holds the Freon) is still cold to the touch.

I need the troubleshooting on when you call a repairman. They iced down the compressor to get it operable again, didn't chage with froen replaced fan motor, took them 3 service calls to tell me it was a leak in the evaporator coil of my bottle cooler.

Motor will run but frige will not get cold. I see there is a cripped off pipe from the bottom of the compressor. if I fit a service port at that point can I check for charge? and if none than put a nitrogen charge in from that point to find what I am assuming is a gas leak. Maybe some other prolem that you know of. thanks


When the gas is sealed off there is a pipe which ends out. So this is not necessarily a leak. But it is important that you check the compressor motor speed, check the gas pressure within- pumping pressure to be checked - before the problem of a leak ... Refrigerators

My TDD-2 was not chilling to the desired temperature, I replaced the thermostat prior, and that did not fix problem. I called a technician who came out and was able to verify that the freon was low. He also, said that it is pretty hard to determine a leak and that it may just need a recharge. He said I would know if it is a leak in about three months. The system ran for about 4 months and the symptoms are back again. I was charged a 180.00 fee for the recharge and diagnosis. I think this guy was
