Fridge isnt cooling


There are numerous reasons for a refrigerator to discharge only cool air; weak compressor, low refrigerant, etc.
However, there are two very common reasons for refrigerators the age of yours to under cool. 1. Dirty condenser coils. Check the condenser and ensure that it is clean. This should improve performance. If that does not solve your problem then 2. Evaporator is freezing up. This can be caused by a faulty defrost timer, a failed defrost element, or a faulty defrost thermostat.

not cooling predictably


Possible causes are dirty filters, dirty condenser coil, dirty evaporator coil, or low referigerant charge. Any one of the conditions will affect heat transfer.

Check the filters in your indoor unit, If they seem to be clean and replaced on a regular basis, your evaporator coil is probably in good shape. Unfortunatley on some Weather King models even checking the evaporator coil is not possible due to the extensive amount of referigerent lines that block access to the coil without some major work including evacuating the refrigerant.

The most likely cause is a dirty outdoor condenser coil. On weather king models you will have to remove the casing that surrounds the coil because is is built in such a way that the condenser coil cannot be properly cleaned with the casing in place. Once it is removed make sure breaker is switched off and clean the coil with a water hose.

If your outdoor coil is not dirty then it is a refrigerent problem.
