Your keg box runs very similar to a Wine Cooler. I believe this can help you. The pressure for the freon and the steps for trouble shooting is he same. Give it a try.

SOURCE: Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Fridge not blowing cold, Buzzing inside black ball "compressor"

The black ball you are reffering to is the compressor.It is trying to start..that is the buzzing.The start,and overload relay is probably bad..hopefully.Because if it isn't the compressor may be bad.Where your wires plug into the compressor...this is the relay.it should come off fairly easy.It is much cheaper to replace this part..than buying a new fridge.For instance i buy them for g.e. refrigerators all the time from an appliance repair shop at cost,and they are less than 4 dollars for me.So I assume they aren't too expensive retail.

Frigidare chest freezer model cf-8h-L compressor is running but not getting cold on the inside


Recycle it. It is on R12 which we haven't used for 20 years. If the compressor has gone, or if you have lost all the gas, it is beyond economic repair.

Ge profile 26 pfss6pkx Light comes on but won't get cold, no fan running


It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.


Jason,
MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

A/C blowing hot air 2000 CDX Daewoo


over filling it was a big mistake, so was guessing.
the freon is added by weight, from empty. not volume.
if the compressor spins, and no cold air , then its a big problem
the only tiny problem to cause this would be leaves packed in evaporator coil. (deep inside air box in cab)
take it to a shop before you damage the compression and fill the whole
thing full of metal chucks wrecking everything, at once $$$$
do not let the compressor run, if it dont get cold. do not.
get it serviced.

Unit not getting cold and freezer not cold. compressor is hot to the touch as well. I cleaned the condensor coils and still not getting cold


if the compressor is running and it's not cooling it sounds like you have a leak in the sealed system.you can remove the inside back wall of the freezer and look at the evap coil.if there's ice just on top or ice pattern isn't covering the whole coil then you have a freeon leak in the sealed system.if the compressor is hot it sounds like it's running,i did find the compressor hot,changed out the start device and it did run again but the compressor was clicking,if you're positive the compressor is running most likely you have a leak in the system and it would be to much to fix.part number for the start device is 8201786 and it's around 55 dollars.

Can you hear if the compressor is running? The high pressure side of the compressor should be too hot to touch, over 140 F. I assume you mean the condenser fan motor at the bottom of the unit. Try to feel how cold the evaporator coil inside the refrigerator box is. A small capillary tube enters one end of the evaporator. That is the coldest spot. It should still feel at least 35 degrees or colder at the other end of the evaporator where the larger suction line is located. The whole evaporator should be cold. A small portion or none of the evaporator is cold means it is not working. The freezer evaporator should be near -30 F.

Emerson Compact Refrigerator not cold.


Make sure the condenser fan is running, it is located near the compressor and blows across the condensing coils, and make sure the coils are clean. Compressors usually do get pretty hot though. And make sure all you fans are running in the inside

Contents does not turn cold


The contents does not get cold even when the fridge runs in my Frigidaire FRTS5A


You could have a bad thermostat or the refrigerator could be low on Freon, make sure you clean off the exposed coils on the back of the fridge and underneath to free it from dust and dirt – use some type of a blower for underneath and the coils you can vacuum off or wipe off the coils, if not call a service tech to have a look @ the refrigerator – it might have a bad compressor
