Question about Avanti 322Y Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

The top of my avanti mini refrigerator is hot

When I put my hand on top of the refrigerator, on the outside, it is hot to the touch. Is that normal? I just purchased it today and plugged it in and soon thereafter, the top of it got hot. I just want to know if that is normal or if I should bring it back to the store.

The return section of the gas cooling circuit is hot. Goes out cold comes back hot, so if that area has return lines behind it nothing wrong with the outside of a fridge being hot. Some fridges even have heaters built in around the doors and openings to prevent freezing up.

SOURCE: purchased an Avanti BCA5102 refrigerator

Hello.
The problem with messing with the unit at this point, is the fact that you would void the warranty. Did you try plugging something else into the socket to make sure you are getting power? If the socket it ok you will need to return it or call a factory authorize servicer.

Plugged in refrigerator and it's getting really hot on side


I don't think fire is any issue. The unit cools itself by dissipating it's heat on its outside walls. For the moment, the outside is hotter than normal because the inside is also hotter than normal. Both will normalize after a while.

Amana Top Freezer Refrigerator is hot to the touch on the outside on the sides by the freezer. Still working fine inside. Is something getting ready to break inside?


The problem was the fan. It was hitting the metal enclosure and had stopped working. We made an adjustment and cleaned it and now it works fine and the hot spots are gone.

Avanti water cooler


check the switch at back if it is working, check the motor compresor touch the top of the motor comp, if working, the possible problem is the freon, touch the condenser at the back of the unit if hot the freon is working, if no hot, load a freon, ok

Fridge temp high


freon and a compressor is about as easy as it gets....Loss of freon will cause erratic cooling...also if you can feel it touch the compressor after it shuts off if if feels like its really hot ....bad compressor that kicks an internal breaker....bad news then time for new one also only a airconditioner man can put freon in no 12 . but freon will stay for 50 to 80 years for i tested some old fridges and still cool fine.
