SOURCE: Avanti Beverage Cooler BCA5105SG running very loud.

Inside the cooler is the evaporator fan usually right in the middle behind a cover. As it slows down you have less circulation and ice forms quicker and cooling is diminished. Sounds like it is going out.

SOURCE: Freezer works, frig does not. Also ice build up in freezer coil

I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.

Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.

Avanti FF-82 walls of refrigerator on both sides feel very hot and we want to know what is causing it or if it is dangerous?


It is most likely you have a "frost-free" model and all of these now-a-days have heaters inside the walls of them for the prevention of ice build-up.
Check with some local appliance stores and ask them the question.
Unless you have food spoilage, you should not have a problem.
God bless your efforts,

AVANTI REFRIDGERATOR HAS WATER BUILD UP ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FRIDGE


more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. Over time it gradually builds and starts voer a larger area. Being you have a top mount refrigerator(freezer on top) there are air ways that connect the freezer to the fridege, which is how its cooled. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt
If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.

The freezer is about 65% cold - the ice cream is melted but the ice cube trays have not. The fridge is about 50% cold, no food has spoiled yet. What is causing the problem?


Clean the condenser fins. Lint build up in the condenser fins is inhibiting heat transfer. Just clean the condenser very well and that might solve your cooling problem.

Ice maker will not eject ice. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.


These units need to have the evaporator coil cleaned routinely. A cleaning solution can be obtain at a refrigeration outlet. Another common problem is the ice thickness is out of adjustment and the ice gets too thick and will not come loose on the defrost cycle, check the thickness.
