Question about U-Line 75BWC

1 Answer

U-Line 75BWC I have a U-Line 75BWC that is about 10 yrs old. The light comes on when I open the door but the motor no longer runs/cools. I saw somewhere else on here that the problem may be the thermostat. How would I know for sure and how easy is it to fix? How much would it cost to have someone else fix it approximately?

If 10 years old then probably has a phial type thermostat. this may have 2 or 3 wires to it plus earth. connect all the wires together (but not earth) and if it is a stat problem, the compressor will start

Refrig won't cool on either freezer or refrig side. Confirmed manual settings & allowed 24 hrs for cooling. Is there a reset switch somewhere other than manual switches inside refrig?

check that the compressor is working by feeling for motor vibrations at the compressor, hot compressor unit or hot fins or back wall of the fridge
if there is not heat then the compressor is not working
call a technician as it could be a start/run capacitor failed or compressor seized
get a quote as some compressor replacements cost as much as a new fridge
check that the utility power is getting to the fridge/freezer

Refrigerator runs all the time and ice cream is too soft.


Thank you for contacting

There are various reasons why a refrigerator keeps on running.

The motor will run longer under warm conditions or if the refrigerator is receiving direct sunlight from a window or door. At normal room temperatures, your motor will run about 40% to 80% of the time. Under warmer conditions, it can run even more.

A recently installed refrigerator will initially run more while cooling. Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to completely cool.

When large quantities of food are added, the refrigerator has to run longer to cool the new items.

The motors will run longer when the doors are frequently opened. Conserve energy by getting all items out one at a time, keeping food organized, and closing the door as soon as possible.

Also a worn door seal or gasket in refrigerator or dirty condenser coil can be the reasons for refrigerator to run long.So you need to consider all these factors troubleshoot your problem to your refrigerator.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Neither the freezer nor the refrigerator is cooling properly

Check the evaporator coils on the back to see if they are warm. The cooling coils are supposed to be real cold. Sounds to me like you are low on refrigerant, and have a very small leak somewhere. I can't fix that from here, but service tech can find leaks, and recharge, but find cost first as you might just want to buy a new one as the other one is 10 yrs old. Hope this helps you, Rick

Unit not running (cooling)

feel the motor and see if warm. if so and not cooling then that is where problem is. more likely is the thermostat. (ignore earth wire to stat). this can be 2 or 3 wire usually. short together and see if compressor starts up. if so thermostat is at fault.
