Question about Hamilton Beach Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a 87307 type WD05 water cooler. The two fans are working, but it does not cool the water. The heater does not work and when you turn on the heat switch the light on the front does not light. Is there a common problem that would affect both heat and cooling?

SOURCE: Not cool at all!

If the compressor is running you should be cooling unless there is a major loss of refrigerant. What we do for these complaints is to first let the refer run for a few hours then pull the interior rear panel off the freezer section back wall and check the frost pattern on the coils. It should be a nice white frost pattern all the way across the coils (no bare alum. showing and no mass of ice either). If you don't have that pattern then there is a sealed system issue. If you have a massive block of ice all over the coils then you have a defrost cycle issue (not getting proper air circ. due to the block-o-ice thing). Let us know what you find... oh, you can sometimes find the leak by looking for oily residue from the compressor lubricating oil (it leaks out where the gas does also).

SOURCE: Refrigerator cooler and fan stopped

On winecaptains when I hear this its usually telling me that the thermostat is open. You will need to replace it. You can put the 2 wires together and plug the unit back in to see if this works. If it does replace the thermostat. If this is a 20 series then the control should be a #2767-1 if its a 15 or 75 wc then part #2767-S But if its a 21 then you need somthing else with the electric. Try to unplug the unit and wait 5 min then restart it if its a 21 series

SOURCE: No heat from heater.water level is full thermostat

Seems like you have checked everything. Now you can basically pinpoint the heatcore as the problem. They do go bad. No heat in car, this would be your problem

SOURCE: My Greenway water cooler/heater does not cool the

I have exactly the same problem. Greenway here in Canada don't want to know. Its over a year old so Greenway wont cover it under their warranty. Being 'Fit for Purpose' doesn't come into it.

Sunpentown SF-609 Evaporative Air Cooler - no cool air

Sometimes there is a separate switch to turn on the water pump. No water=no cooling. Check to make sure the cooling pads are wet! If they are completely wet and the fan is blowing it should cool.

No Cold Water

Sounds like the fans have stoped turning for the cooling system. If you cannot hear the fans turn on when you flip the COOL switch this is your problem. Pick the fans up at a computer parts store like Frys. Any other part failure on this unit other than a loose wire is not worth repairing.

The heating and cooling sections are separate..these are not known to last very long. Sorry. (check the switches though - does the indicater light come on?)
