Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Avanti refrigerator model 1292 YWT

Top mounted freezer will not cool down enought to freeze ice cubes. The lower refrigerator section is cooling fine. There is no frost in the freezer (it has melted away). It appears the compressor has two seperate cooling circurts, one for the freezer and one for the refrigerator. I have never seen a set up like this. Thanks for your help

JH, did you notice if the freezer back panel was full of frost first time it started thawing? If so you may have a defrost problem. I've had 4 of these control boards (jazz boards) fail on this model in the last week. Behind the front grill, there should be a tech sheet that will show you how to run the componet tests at the control board. Part number for the board is 12002339. This board controls compressor, defrost, damper and fans. Catriver.

your sure the defrost cycle works? sounds to me its not. you need to remove the freezer back and check the defrost components. or put it in the defrost cycle and see if it is working. to get that much frost as you describe the dor would have to be left open. also check all door seals. let me know what you find and we can go from there

Problem seems to be solved. I unplugged it for a short time and plugged it back in. I'm guessing it needed to be re-set.

Fridge not cooling... Freezer is fine

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

The freezer is about 65% cold - the ice cream is melted but the ice cube trays have not. The fridge is about 50% cold, no food has spoiled yet. What is causing the problem?

Clean the condenser fins. Lint build up in the condenser fins is inhibiting heat transfer. Just clean the condenser very well and that might solve your cooling problem.

Water is leaking inside the refrigerator and the ice cube aren't freezing completely (cube is a hollow shell of ice)

Possibly it is because fridge is not cooling correctly(Ice cubes hollow).. Suggest proper defrost. if it is cooling partially, it shows cooling is trying to take place (Make sure before you switch on after defrost, check for proper water drainage.Water must flow to the compressor once defrosted.Take note if the fan runs correctly.

Avanti compact Refrigerator NOT COOLING

I had this same problem. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that the fan was being bogged down by ice. It wouldn't spin because the ice was so heavy. I turned the power off completely and let the ice melt. Once the ice was removed from the fan, the fridge began working again!
