Question about Refrigerators

8 Answers

I have a beverage air MT27. About two weeks ago it stopped cooling after being accessed numerous times that day. I cleaned the coils in the front access and it worked well for a few weeks. This past Sunday, Feb 15th it was accessed frequently again and stopped cooling. It is running and the fan is running as well. I opened up the front again and cleaned the coild totally just to make sure but it is still not cooling. Any help will be appreciated.

    If you read my original post I did clean the coils. The seal on the door is fine too.

If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type.

You may have a freon leak that is not allowing it to cool anymore. the only way to know for sure is to have it checked. it sounds like its low on freon though

1. try cleaning the condenser it's gotta to have some dirt.

(if it looks clogged, turn the unit off and spray the condenser with a water hose!) it should throw out some dirt

if you did step 1 and still no cooling suspect a small refrigerant leak.

most of the times if its r-134a, i go down to autozone and buy a stop leak for r-134a and charge it into system.

also if theres a refrigerant leak,i'd get a tech to check and correct leak (if he finds it) but that's worse case scenario :) I'd go with dirty condenser.... email me at hvac.tech7872pr@gmail.com if you need more info.

Check the compressor, relay which is located on the back of the unit and then also check the thermostat which is located at the temperature adjustment dial.

    Dont remove the compressor. It is full of Freon. Very bad for you to inhale. The compressor is a little black cylindrical piece on the back bottom of the unit. The relay is mounted onto the compressor by a silver looking clamp and a black boc. Remove that cover and test the relay with a volt meter.

Its the problem of condensor coils getting dirt or getting blocked by dust in between but as you said you cleaned it and it worked for sometime and stopped again.as this iondicates the compressor is nor getting started this is the problem.as the fan is working no need to replace the fan.just remove the compressor carefully check out for any leakage and slowly reinsert the another compressor unit.if its leaking then its the leakage that is blocking the cooling in the unit.

You may need to clean the condenser coils. This should be done about every 6 to 12 months.

Other possibilities

* Check the door gaskets for proper sealing, especially the bottom section.


* Clean the gasket surface where your door gaskets meets the metal with warm soapy water

    There is no problem with your relay . Since motor and fan is running properly the relay cant be the problem .
    Another chance a failed heating element or a bad
    defrost timer could prevent the frost from being automatically removed
    from the evaporator fins. This would result in reduced cooling in the
    freezer and eventually the refrigerator as well.

    Also weak compressor or low Freon charge can cause you this problem .

    How old is your unit ?

    If it is more than 5 years . You face this problem due to bad compressor .

Condenser Fan Shuts off after 15-20min, Compressor continues to run but gets hot


Condenser fan motor or motor wiring is bad. That compressor should never run without the fan. Good luck.

How to add refrigerant to mt27


You should check the condenser to see that it is clean. Is the compressor running? If you have a leak, putting in gas wont help. You need to look for oil on the components around the compressor, inside the cooling coil housing. Hope this helps good luck.

Beverage air won't keep cooling


Hi David, sorry about that, I just found your model number. I want to help you but I need a few things first. First when is is plugged in and on can you tell me if the compressor is running? You can find it near the coils in the back, you can touch it and it wont shock you but it could be very hot so be careful. If it is running can you see if the fan in the back beside it is running?

What does the overload relay look like a Beverage-Air MT27 Beverage Cooler Commercial


Normally thermal overloads have a button like appearance on the compressor. Designed to open circuit when temp has caused distortion to the bi-metal contacts. Upon cooling will close again. Disconnect power before checking continunity on the overload terminals.

I have a Beverage Air model MT 27. Coils have been cleaned and recharged with freon. Cooler will not cool below 50 degrees?


You'll need to check the back-pressure on the low-side of the system, you have a faulty compressor. If there is a condenser fan motor make sure it is running when the compressor is on.

Will not cool. Fan runs, have cleaned coil.


The compressor may not be starting. Put your forehead against the nmachine when youturn it on or plug it in, You will feel the vibration of the pump. If it is not coming on, you may need a technician to what determine why it is not working.
