SOURCE: Refrigerator does not cool

If the refrigerator cooling is poor, it may be a problem with the thermostat, the compressor, or the evaporator fan. If ice is accumulating at the back of the fridge, that can also be a reason for poor cooling.

See aso the links below for a more detailed explanation:

It's not cool
Cooling is poor

SOURCE: side by side leaks out front door on freezer side

try checking the tube that water drains out , it could be plugged with crumbs or old partials of food and causing the problem, This has happened with my fridge at one time , affecting the defrost cycle of the freezer and dripping water out of the door, The tube was located under the crisper in the back of the inside of my fridge, Hope this solves your problem

I want top to enjin mazda van E1400,but i dont now how to set timing chain mazda bongo E1400 van.single up crank .

great question
an earlier 1400 cc engine with timing chain

1979–1980 1415 cc UC, 70 PS (52 kW)
fitted to some
Second generation bongo Vans (1977–1983)

in the absence of you not making marks or observations

best guess is crank mark is a straight line to top cam mark

other wise old school way
both number one valves closed
number one piston at top compression point
lower harmonic balancer at TDC timing mark
distributor rotor at number one plug lead pick up
top cam should be at its correct timing mark

internet search hopeless today
all i can find online is timing belts for later models

I have a Servis fridge freezer and it's making a clicking noise at the front at the top. Fridge and freezer working but noise annoying . Stops when u open the door. What is causing this.

Does it have a fan? If so fan may activate when the door switch closes. Open the door and hold switch then and check for noise.

There are not many auto repair techs that I know of that deal with Bongo watches. I believe you will get better results if you were to post your question under the correct category.

I shut my refrigerator doors and a noise is made in the top back happens...I open the doors and the sound disappears. What should I do

Try to set the level of the fridge. Using a bubble level on top, adjust the front feet up/down to level it. When the doors open, weight is to the front and may help with an internal fan blade position.

It is making a buzzing noise on freezer side that stops when u open the door but starts again when u close it

On some models of refrigerators, the evaporator fan (behind an access panel at the top of the freezer) shuts off when the door is opened. This fan may be making the buzzing sound.

You should be able to check by pushing in the door switch while holding the door open. The fan should come on; and, if the buzzing resumes, you know what is making the noise. The fan may be developing a problem. If it stops running, the cold air will not be distributed properly between the freezer and refrigerator.

Kenmore - over under

Adjust the feet to raise the front of the frige, which should be higher than the back. Therefore the weight of the door will keep it shut or at least cause it to shut itself if it pops open.

Mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel 1996. over heating

no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.
