I have a 10 year old Whirlpool Commercial 19.6 cu.ft. upright freezer. No. EV200N . It just stopped working. The inside light is on... temp on the normal setting.... Doesn't cool... most of the food had...


Hi Pete,

I will take you up on the beer if we get this going.

If the fan is running and not cooling there is one thing that would be repairable other than that it is not worth it.

Go to the back of the freezer and at the bottom is the compressor (looks like a bowling ball, kinda anyway). Unplug the freezer, on the side of the compressor is a small black cover with wires going into it. Pry off this cover and you will see a couple of parts, these are the overload protector and relay.

Take a picture with your phone or digital camera so you know how they hook up then pull them off, they are tight but will pull straight off. If the relay rattles the part is bad, that simple. If not I will have to buy you a beer as you will most likely need a new freezer

Whirlpool model ET18PK not cooling


You have either got an internal leak or there is a bolckage in the system. switch off as soon as poss. as the gas is what keeps the comp. cool.being low on gas , comp.will eventually burn out. Quick check so that you have nothing to loose. (inspection for blockage). Look for the copper drier .At the back by the compressor. It has a 1/4 inch copper pipe on the one side and a very thin pipe on the other. Flex the thin pipe until it breaks. If gas pours out of the broken area. then its a good sign which Indicates a blockage. Decide weather it would be worth it to regas. If no gas comes out or very little, almost certainly it is an internal leak. In that case look for something else.

Food thawing in freezer


You may have a small leak in the evaporator. You could try to get a replacement freon with stop leak from the automotive store and give it a shot. If it is a R12 unit then it is too old to repair. But it is worth the gamble to shoot it with freeze 12 or an equivilent before you condemn it.

AS A FRIDGE ENGINEER I HAVE COME ACROSS THIS PROBLEM BEFORE IT COULD BE A LOSS OF REFRIGERANT ALTHOUGH THIS WOULD STEADILY WORSEN IN USE,MORE LIKELY THERE IS A BLOCKAGE IN THE SYSTEM STOPPING THE REFRIGERANT REACHING ALL THE PIPEWORK THE CHEAPER FREEZERS USE THE SHELFS AS PART OF THE FREEZING SYSTEM.
THE ONLY SOLUTION IS A COMPRESSOR CHANGE AND REGAS (COSTLY IF NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY/GUARANTEE ETC)

IF FREEZER IS MORE THAN 5 YRS OLD BEST TO SCRAP IT UNFORTUNATELY..
