SOURCE: need recommended sub-cooling and superheat for

Superheat should be 8 to 12 degree's. Sub cooling around 18-22. I like to use superheat that way I know the coil is doing all it can do.

SOURCE: Refrgerator is not cooling

Hi there
I have some stuff for you to read hope this helps you.
Cooling is poor For an overall understanding of how refrigerators should work, read about refrigerators in the How Things Work section of our website. A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas: Evaporator coils Condenser Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt. Evaporator coils Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets. The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited. Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system: The defrost timer The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch) The defrost heater If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

The fridge been loosing it cooling and freezing ability over a period of a week, the seals are in good condition and it has no other problems.

what's the brand name,model number and how old is it.if everything is running good but it's not cooling like it used to you could have a leak in the sealed system.the best way to tell is to remove the inside back wall of the freezer,look at the evap coil,if the frost pattern isn't even throughout the coil you have a leak,if there's frost just at the top of the coil and not covering the whole coil it's time for a new there any like ice or snow on the inside back wall of the freezer?if so you have a defrost problem and this would happen,also if it's a g.e. you could have a bad motor board,you need to send the brand name model number and let me know if you find frost building up in the freezer or what you see

The temperature of the fridge has risen to 11/12 degrees & wont come down? Freezer works fine! Any answers please

Don't know the make and model of your fridge, but most fridges have only one evap coil located in the freezer. The fridgerator compartment is cooled by a fan to blow air from the coil back into the fridgerator section. Check that the fan is working and the vents in the fridgerator are not blocked. Often the problem might be that the defrost circuit is not functioning causing ice to build up on the evap coil thus block the air flow to the fridge. If you seen any ice build up in freezer or refrigerator that could be the problem. If that is the case, then you need to have the defrost circuit troubleshot, typical failures are the heater itself or the defrost timer if you have an older model. Hope this helps you.

Our GE Profile TPS24BPDA BS is no longer cooling in both the freezer and refridgerator portion. Please help:)

Check the evap coil at the back of the freezer for ice buildup... and that the evap fan is running.

Defrost if necessary.

Goodman Model # cpke241AB not cooling always running

First locate the air handler.Open the access panel and you will see the evap coil.You will clean the coil in the unit,I use a wire brush and coil/evap cleaner.I dont typically clean the blower but if you must there will be 2 or 3 screws and some electrical that you will need to disconnect.then the blower assembly will slide out and you can clean it outside,Note where you disconnect the electrical connections --good luck!

Kenmore air conditioner model # CACO24.. Stops putting out cool air... Line outdoor ices up..

Then you have a sealed system problem. Or a dirty evap coil. If the evap is very dirty then it could iceup and no cool will result. If low of charge you will have the same problem. My advise is call for a tuneup to check the problem out.

Cooling problems

Check the filters inside and the evap coil to make sure it isnt filthy. The evap coil can be cleaned with a credit card if its wet. The large line outside should sweat all the way to the compressor if its got enough freon. Will freeze when its cool outside or not sweat at all if its low. Good luck with it.
