Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Why is my evaporator, refrigerator and freezer not getting cold with the compressor running and what type of refrigerant does it use?


Answers :

Your system uses R-134a refrigerant.

\015\012If the compressor is running but it's not cooling, you probably have a refrigerant leak or possibly a restriction in your evaporator.

I purchased an Amana side-by-side refrigerator in March 1999. About 2 weeks ago I noticed the freezer was not as cold as it used to be. I checked the temperature and found the freezer to be between 17 and 20 degrees F. where it was always 0 F. before. The compressor cycles normally, but does stay on most of the time. The refrigerator is running about 40, which is normal. A repairman told me that the lines feeding the compressor have become clogged by the fluid coagulating in the compresso

I have a Whirpool refrigerator type 22 TFA Mfg. date 01/2009. Ser. EY027629, Mod. GR2FHMXVS01 worked great until a couple of weeks ago, until we noticed that it was not cold enough inside of the refrigerator part only. The freezer was fine. We had it set on 3 which is the normal setting, and I moved it to 5 the highest setting. We waited for a couple of days to see if this helped, and it did not. I then vacuumed the condenser coils, and I used my air compressor to blow off the condenser coils an

Model 550 Refrigerator constantly running. Had a Subzero repairman in and he said the evaporator coil is leaking and the refrigerator compressor is running constantly to keep up to temperature. I have it set at 5 and the temperature is 38 degrees. I decided to turn the freezer control to off (to make sure that compressor was not running) so I could move the refrigerator control warmer to see if it cycled off. When I turned the freezer off, the entire unit went silent; it apparently was the freez

Hi Side by side refrigerator not cooling down. Freezer seems to be not freezing. refrigerator compressor is running.

I have a GE Model PSC23MG Refrigerator. The freezer section does not get cold enough. Starting several months ago the refrigerator was noiser than normal.

I have an Amana side by side refridgerator. The fridge side is not cooling, the freezer side is still a little cold but not cold enough. I see frost in the back of the freezer at the vents, but no air flowing. It seems that the fan is not blowing air at all. The compressor seems to be fine, the evaporator fan is running in the back and the thermostat switches seem to be working (when I turn it off, it turns off the evaporator fan in the back).
