Our LG refrigerator wasn't cooling either. With ours it turned out to be that the light wasn't turning off when the door was closed! It seemed unbelievable at first, but the heat from the light bulbs was heating the whole refrigerator section to just about the same temp as the outside room. Here's the key, 'though. If this is the case, the fridge section is warm, but the freezer is cold.

Make and model # was there frost on the evap.?

    Did u let it set for aleast 24hrs. after u tipped in on its side??

    If not you have a good change u plugged up the system... with refigerator running...

    u should have a light layer of frost across all the tubes in evaputator... after running for 1/2 hr. or less IF NOT You propley have a plugged system from not letting it stand for at least 24hrs after been on its side...

  • Mike Johnson
    Mike Johnson Sep 12, 2007

    did you lay in down on its side or just tip it some?

  • Mike Johnson
    Mike Johnson Sep 13, 2007

    This is going to be hard to diagnosis, For one u dont know for sure IF it was in good working order when u got it... Then laying it on its side is a good way to plug the system up.

    One way is to leave plugged in over night and see if it buids up a ice ball in one spot just as in enters the evap...

    If experinced enough u can feel the lines in back before filter and after to feel difference in temp to help locate a block... filter and ...capalary tube.. small thin tube coming from filter ... capalary tube and filter are most likey places where could be plugged....

    How old is this refrigerator???
    Good chance there was something wrong with it or why did they get another one?

    Plugged and low or out of refrigerant is very simular semtoms of the problem u have.

    Either way your looking at a major job...

  • Mike Johnson
    Mike Johnson Sep 13, 2007

    For a experience repair man.. Doing these kinds of repairs...I would say u maybe had a chance to save it... IF its plugged, You would have to a at least install a tap valve, change the filter, Vacuum system and recharge.

    If Low on refrigerant...Depending on the leak?
    suction side or pressure, fixing leak would be about the same as above.... If would have to be out of refrigerant or plugged completely not to frost evap at ALL. Which means probley air in system If out of refrigerant.

    I believe you would be better of spending your money on another refrigerator.

    You never said how Old or what Model this frig. is?

  • Mike Johnson
    Mike Johnson Sep 13, 2007

    Well Number 1 Your not licensed to replace or add refrigerant in refrigeration systems.. if you were you woulnt be asking HOW and I could possibley be lible for giving you instruction....

    If you have worked on auto. a/c systems you would know it goes in the same side. There should be info on the model # Tag giveing u the specks u need on how much it holds.

    Do u even Know what type of refrigerant it takes?

Refrigerator wont get cold


If compressor is running check and make sure your cond. fan and evap fan are running. Also check in freezer and make sure evap. coil is not covered in ice. Also clean your condenser coil. You could be low on refrigerant. There are quite a few things to check.

Outside fan not running, inside unit running fine. Compressor was running this morning, but no longer. Replaced fan motor, turned power back on, now fan or compressor not running. What else can be checked?


Hi,
There may be a manual reset high limit... look for a red button on a round part hooked to the small copper line and push it in hard...
Also the compressor may have kicked the overload and needs a few hours to cool and it reset, that is interanl insdie the compressor.
Contactor may also have went bad...

My mini split turns on but is not cooling. It comes and goes... sometimes it cools, and the majority of time it doesnt. Plus, is leaking water. I live in an island and is hot! I need help!


With out looking at it, I can give you some ideas that could cause these problems. I need to know where the water is coming from? If it is leaking on the inside, this narrows it down some. It sounds to me that the evap. coil is icing up which the unit could be low on freon, you're indoor fan motor may not be running up to speed, a dirty filter or evap. coil. You need to shut the unit off, maybe through the night. Get a latter and remove the cover on the indoor unit. Check and wash the foam filter and look the coil over for excess dirt build up. Leave the cover off for now, and go outside to the outdoor unit. Have someone turn the t-stat to on. Watch and make sure that the outdoor fan stays on and listen very close to see if you can hear the compressor running. It sounds to me that one of the named items I have listed is causing the evap. coil indoors to ice up and blocking the air flow to you're home. Let it run with the cover off and just watch it for a few hours. If it starts to ice up and the filter is removed with cover, and the indoor fan is also blowing air, more than likely, you have a small freon leak which is causing the problem. If I were there, I would know in a few min. what the problem is. As far as the leak, it is the ice melting off and running over and the condesate line may have a partial plug in it. If it is low on freon, you can go outside and put your hand on the larger copper line to see if it is warm. It should be sweating or condesating if it is charged properly. If warm or barely cool, more than likely it needs a charge and leak check.

Not circulating air


You will need to have your door gasket seals inspected and possibly replaced.

Then you might want to check behind the back cover of your freezer and look for ice build up and excess frost on your evap coils - this indicates seld defrosting problems - and the symptoms are functioning compressor and evap fan but air is not cool enough - Once you manually defrost those with a dryer and let your unit cool for a few hours, if it comes back to normal you know you have a defrost problem and will need to have your control board / defrost components checked.

Also - you might want to have them check your damper system it might be shut or not opening to let the air from your freezer in your refrigerator. (if applicable)

Fridge and Freezer won't cool.


The evap fan is running - but is your compressor motor running -t his is what i'm concerned about - 82F ? That is very high - this suggests to me there is no cooling AT ALL - only the fans are working - and my gut tells me your compressor is not running AT ALL - I would rule out thermostat since when it kicks in and your evap fans turn on, your compressor should turn on too. If this fridge has electronic controls, have your motherboard / control boards checked, have your compressor checked. If your compressor is running and you can hear its distinctive humming sound, then you have a sealed system problem, a major one :) Have those two things checked.

Ckl60-1l outside fan runs good,compressor do not run


Reasons for icing up are dirty filters,dirty indoor evap coil or low on refrigerant. Check these. Your compressor is probably overheated. Let it go for a couple of hours if you are in a hurry. Run a water hose over it. Rus

Unit not freezing , evaporator fan wont run


If this is a Bev-Air, don't think the door switch will control the fan. At the evap, there is a temp sensor called a fan delay. When unit goes into defrost mode, this warms up. Some also serve a dual purpose. It will terminate the defrost cycle at a certain temp., say 51 degrees or so, at the evap. Anyway, when unit comes out of defrost, it keeps the fan off so it allows the evap to cool quicker and to prevent circulating warm air. This could be your problem. Not a hard fix but they can be a pain sometimes. Outside chance that the unit is low on refrigerant (freon). This will not let the evap get cold enough to trip the sensor back into position to turn the fan on. Good Luck. Restaurant Parts and More carry alot of Bev-Air stuff. 1-888-814-1110. Ask for Rick

Whirlpool el7atrrkq01 won't cool


First, please re-check to see if both fans are running, the condenser fan by the compressor and the evap fan in the freezer. Next, empty the freezer and remove the evap cover. look at the evap coils. Are they completly frosted up -- if so, you have a defrost problem - this will cause the condition you describe- IF they are not frosted, are only a few of the passes of coil frosted and some just wet with no frost? Then that means you need some freon. The fact that you have some cooling means that the compressor is probabaly OK.
