SOURCE: Refrigerator won't work after winter shut down at camp

This is a problem we frequently run into in a situation such as yours. Refrigerators are meant to be used in continuous operation. Using them seasonally will let the high side condenser tubing, internal to most cabinets, rust through and loose the refrigerant charge.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore refrigerator. The freezer works,

hi,,
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.
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.the refrigerator then cools properly
rate me...

If you remove the 3 screws holding the ice maker to the wall , and you do not see a plug at the rear , then unplug the refrig . Remove the ice maker cover ( it just snaps off ) . Where the line connects to on the ice maker , you will see a small square hole with a " flap " which has to be depressed , and the wiring will slide out , after unclipping the black fuse piece , from the mold .

I have a small Avanti refrigerator which I unplugged for about 3 months. When I plugged it back in it does not run or make any kind of noise. The model no. is 18CYC/YW/YB.


Possible that the starter is dirty not working. You can find this on the side of the compressor unit. Remove the mains power and check the wiring to the fridge, check the circuit as normally shown on the backside of the fridge. You can find the circuit breaker/starter, remove and clean

Does dehuidifiers stop working as hard in the winter months then in the summer months. Because my water bucket has not fill up since gotten cold. I live is Alexandria Va and it is winter here.


Generally speaking there is more moisture in the air during the summer months. As the humidity goes down in the winter your dehumidifier will not collect as much water because there is less moisture in the air.

My frig. in the garage.. The freezer works great in summer months but in winter months it doesn't. Why is that?


Good day,
That is normal. The thermostat that runs the whole machine is located in the refrigerator compartment.
When it reaches normal temperature, it shuts off. In winter months that may mean as long as 12 hours or more. Thus not enough running time per day to keep the freezer near it's normal temperature.
Engineers design domestic refrigerators to be in an area comfortable to humans. Normally 70 degrees or higher. Thus your problem.
The only solution is to bring the machine inside.
Sorry.

Thank you for using FixYa

Freezer doesn't freeze in winter?


Domestic refrigerators nowadays are designed not to operate at temperatures less than 45 degrees. First, if it's 45 degrees in the house, people probably are not living there. 2nd, 45 degrees keeps food refrigerated. 3, if people are not living in a space, then they don't need to keep frozen food.

This is a result of the changes in refrigerants we've been going through since 1992.
If you want an outdoor freezer, buy one, and make sure it's designed to be used in a non conditioned space.
