Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

IsoTherm replacement I have a 10 year old Isotherm refrigerator, MOD 1012002, S/N 34071. It does not work. I want to get a replacement. Rather than remove the unit, I want to know what the cut-out dimensions are for it, at least at its minimum. Is it possible that you could send me the cut sheet for this unit? In addition, is there a current unit that you know would fit the same dimensions of this space? Looks like the Cruise 130 (12V D/C and 110V AC) is pretty close.

This sounds like the float mechanism has gone bad. Remove it and have a look. It may be the float or the switch on it that is bad. There is also a solenoid valve. Parts kits are available. Shut off the water first!

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

SOURCE: Can we retrofit our 20 year old KitchenAid Superba Refrigerator

Refrigerator efficiency is dependant on multiple things...

compressor efficiency
Refrigerant used
Size/type of evaporator
Size/type of condensor
Ambient temperature
Insulation used and thickness of

There have been some advances in compressor efficiency in the last twenty years but if your unit is using R-12 it would most likely have to be upgraded to R134a due to environmental regulations. Therefore, without a major redesign of your unit to include resizing the system and somehow adding insulation, updating to the newest and greatest compressor will really not gain you much in efficiency and cost as much or more than an entire new unit.

There are still units made without stainless. Unless your unit is a power hungry monster (and yours is not) I doubt a new unit would save you more than a buck a month in power savings.

I wish I could make a recommendation for you but I do not know the market well enough. I know if I were in your place I would hang on to my unit for as long as it works well and continue to save up for a higher end model (with the best warranty/service plan) and look ofr the best replacement out there.

Note: Beware of high end units that are just high priced due to looks. Most units these days are made from the lowest bidder parts (world-wide) and even if they look awsome and have high quality standards during production are subject to the "roll of the dice" due to the cheap electronics used for controls.

Good-luck, Subdriver

Hi,
Yes and no... the problem may be simple...check out these tips before replacing it...

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

We own an Amana bottom freezer; Mod.# BC120TW, Ser # 9708176268. It is approximately 10 - 11 years old. The freezer is not getting to a low enough temperature. We have soft ice cream etc. I have cleaned...


If it is constantly running, (compressor and the fan inside of freezer) then the thermostat is working, more than likely you have an inefficient compressor or a low charge in the sealed system due to a refrigerant leak. Touch the compressor, is it almost too hot to touch? Do you hear a buzzing and clicking noise every so often? If you can answer that for me, I could better diagnose it

Stopped cooling


Hello cpuklutz
Welcome


You said, Kenmore; 21 cu ft; 10-years old; just stopped cooling; wondering if it even makes any financial sense to get estimate to repair, or is 10 years about it's trouble free length of service

Here is an article that you may find useful and interesting related to your situation.
Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Freezer works but frige dosent get cold enough.


Welcome to fixya richarddl53,

You said, you have a side by side about fifteen years old need to know what type freon to charge it with.

The freon that's used in the old refrigerators is not legal now!
They started using a newer kind of freon years ago that does not deplete the ozone layer.
Yes you are low on freon, but that's because you have a leak somewhere.
And if by chance you could acquire the freon that you need to add into the older model fridge, it will just leak out again shortly!
My opinion is that you should not put good money into bad!
A new refrigerator uses less electricity than a fridge that is ten years old.
And yours uses 10% more than that!
you will see the differents in you utility bill as it will pay for it self in a few years!


I just read this report you may find interesting.

Gas dryer


Hi Mette-q,
Welcome to fixya.com

I'm Huuum,


You said,you have a Kenmore gas dryer mod. 110.95087400 ser. ms0201135 it's a smartheat quiet pak9. Is there anyway I could convert this from natural gas to electric, is there a conversion kit available.



They do have conversion kits for gas to LP.
But I believe that there is no gas to electric.
You must find a gas line from some where in the home and run it to your location, or buy an electric dryer.
Remember that if you can run a gas dryer it will save you 30% on your energy bill over electric and in time pay for the cost of running the gas line to it.
I hope you are not in an electric only house!

How old is the dryer?? Waiting for your response!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
