I work at Mt Hope Hardware in Holmes county Ohio. The amish use gas refrigerators instead of electric and we work on them all the time. There is a local recharge shop just down the road from us that should be able to fix that for you. Feel free to call us at 330-674-7474 and ask for the service department. We should be able to help you decide what you need to do and put you in touch with the other shop if necessary. Thanks
Check temp setting. Freezer temp is -14*f to 8*F and Fridge temp is 36*F to 46*F As per your statement seems to be chock in thew system. Check for whistling sound in freezer. If not check gas pressure by keeping arm in condenser coil. If warm, gas is o.k. but chock is confirmed. Remove all gas, flush out system. Vacuum and do gas charging. Thanks.
Check compressor working and also with correct pressure. Keep arm in condenser coil. If you feel warm, check freezer to hear slight whistling sound. If not short of gas or gas leak. If warm and no whistling sound means, system chocked. Release all gas and flush out system. Vacuum and do gas charging. Thermostat setting must be 3 to 5 degree Centigrade.(37*F to 41*F). Thanks.
thermostat defective/Short of gas/chocked/no gas. 1. Thermostat is malfunctioned-Replace it. 2. Check amps of the fridge if run amps is less than as specified, it's gas leak. 3. Keep your arm on condenser line. If it's warm, gas is there. Check slight whistling sound in freezer. If not system chocked. For gas leak find leak and arrest it. Then vacuum and do gas charging. For chocked system, release all gas and flush out the system. Replace filter drier and vacuum and do gas charging. Helpful?
I looked at your wiring diagram. This ice box has automatic defrost controls. That means the temp is regulated by a computer board. Their are some diagnostics you can perform on some of these models. Your ice box appears to be a midrange control model. Click HERE for a diagnostics video
Check power is o.k. And then check power to relay. If o.k., Check compressor is working. If not replace relay. After replacing relay compressor working. Keep your arms on discharge pipe line. If warm, gas is o.k. Otherwise, gas leak. If warm and whistling sound inside the freezer, gas flow is normal. If not, system chocked. Release gas and flush out system, vacuum and gas charging. Hope, helpful.
most likely you have a frozen drain in the freezer section so that whne your refrig defrosts the water runs out into the freezer compartment instead of the drain pan underneath. the fix is to flush the drain with warm water to clear the obstruction. the drain can be reached either by removing the cover in the freezer area or by back flushing the line from beneath the refrig.
