Which is the measure of the capillary tube?? mi regfrigerator model is TFXW27F

Hello Roberto;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Are you sure it is your capillary tube? If you found it broken, then you have lost your refrigerant. If you have found it broken, then you have a restriction in your seal system. In all of my years as a service technician I have never heard of a broken capillary tube.
A capillary tube is a short section of tubing 10-12" long. It is 1/16" in diameter with a sewing needle size hole through it. It is located coming off your evaporator coil in your freezer. On the one side of the capillary tube is 160 PSI of liquid refrigerant. The refrigerant passes through the capillary tube and transforms into 60 PSI of refrigerant vapor.
Don't give up. I am here to help you. Tell me more about what is happening, or better yet give me a call @ 443-306-1362.

Refrigerator wont cool

You laid the refrigerator on its side? If the refrigerator has been moved in this way oil from the compressor flows to the evaporator and blocks the capillary tube. Just leave the refrigerator standing for about tenty four hours. Then try plugging the power on for about ten minutes at a time until the compressor is able to continue running and the capillary tube begins to clear out the oil that was cause by laying down refrigerator. If this is the problem you simply need to plug in power for short times until the compressor starts again without restriction of oil in capillary tube. Do not plug it in and leave your refrigerator while there is back pressure and compressor will not run. That could cause damage to compressor. Have comments or questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze
What is the model number? Was the problem caused after moving fridge?

Why does the main frigerant line on the compressor freeze up

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

There are a few things that will cause the main line to freeze. The most common reason is a restriction in the capillary tube off of the drier. A tiny speck of internal system debris blocks the capiliary tube and the main line freezes. You can try and clear the debris by fist making sure the compressor is off for about 15 minutes so the system equalizes then use a hammer handle to strike the drier while holding a block of wood against the driner to keep it from moving substantially. Mind you the restriction can also be on the evaporator coil connection end of the capillary tube. This one you can do little about other than change the capillary tube.
Here is a picture of a refrigerant drier: If there is a clog it will be on the small tube side of the drier. Do NOT strike the drier in the small tube area. Strike it on the main body only. After SEVERAL strikes of the drier main body (hammer handle to the body) re-start the unit. If it freezes again the 2nd reason for the line to freeze is too much coolant (recent service would be the only reason for too much coolant unless it has done this since new).
The 3rd reason... would be poor airflow across the condenser coils. (Lint build up or fan not working)

These are the main reasons for the 1/4 inch high pressure coolant line to freeze up. Just note that anytime the system is opened it has to pumped into a vacuum for 30 minutes before being re-charged with coolant.

Thanks for choosig FixYa,

I have a true fridge mod number t55u-27-8 we keep salad in it and it keeps freezing all the salad please can you help ritchie

Hi, there are 3 likely things causing the problem.
Thermostat contacts faulty
Capillary tube(the thin tube connected to the thermostat) broken somewhere
Capillary tube not making good surface contact with the evaporator/cold plate.
A Leakey door seal is normally indicated by excessive frost buildup on the evaporator/cold plate over a short period.maybe the thermostat knob is slipping and not adjusting the temperature level of the thermostat...........

Hotpoint RLA64 getting too cold.

The thermostat capillary on a Hotpoint RLA64 (and possibly RLA80) is inserted into a tube. The tube becomes detached from the cooling element and so does not sense that the fridge has reached the desired temperature. It then carries on cooling resulting in ice build-up and freezing of goods.
As you cannot remove the top or back of the fridge, you cannot fix the capillary tube back into position. What you can do however, AFTER ISOLATING THE FRIDGE FROM THE MAINS SUPPLY, is to drill a small hole adjacent to the thermostat capillary tube and another in the roof of the fridge next to the interior light and pass the thermostat capillary INTO the fridge cabinet. Use tape to attach the capillary across the roof of the fridge and down the centre of the rear wall curling the last 50mm or so back up towards the top of the fridge. As long as you have dried the wall of the fridge and stuck the capillary securely in place, your fridge should now work correctly when powered up.
Only tackle this job if you are confident and ALWAYS ISOLATE the mains supply.

Capillary tube replacement

The True TSSU-60-16 uses an oversized (134A) refrigeration system with air flow directed at the pans.... if the capillary tube is plugged it will NOT cool at all.. most of the time a restriction (plug) is at the drier where the capillary tube goes into it.. as it is smallest passage in the system...hope it helps

Replacing a temp control valve on a true GDM 26 commercial refridgerator

Unplug the unit & remove the plate holding the thermostat. The capillary for the thermostat will go into a very small tube that runs into the evaporator coil. You will probably not be able to see the tube but will have to feel for it and get a good orientation for where it is located before you pull the capillary out. Try to measure the amount of capillary in the tube as you pull it out so you know how far you have to push the new one in and put some kind of tape or mark on the new capillary before you try to push it in. you might have to soap up the capillary to get it to slide easier.
