Beverage Air UR30GE Won't Get Cold.

I have turned the thermostat all the way cold. I have removed the cover and by-passed the thermostat. No luck. The evaporator and condenser fans are both running. The compressor is not kicking in consistently. I did hear it kick in after I moved it around and knocked on the relays around the compressor. Is there a replacement relay, sensor or capacitor on the compressor? A manual with schematics and exploded views would be helpful.

It is possible it is low on refrigerant!

Kicking and knocking parts wont help here.................there is a low pressure swith in the line and when the gas gets low ( a leak ) it protects the compressor by shutting down!

Since the pressure's fluctuate in a system when it is on and then off; it will cycle.

If the thermostat has been bypassed it sounds like lack of refrigerant gas in the system. The level cant be checked visually, it will need to be checked by an engineer with pressure gauges.

Refrigerator not cooling; freezer fine

I don't know which model refrigerator you have but nearly all refrigerators cool the refrigerator section by passing cold air from the freezer section. Often the air passage will ice up so that the cold air can't get through. A thermostat controls the air flow,
That should be enough information to help you find the problem. You may have to remove some inner covers to find the problem.

Fridge is running but not getting cold. Line underneath feels very cold but air coming in fridge is not cold. Fan under the freezer and fridge is running.


If refrigerator is not cooling properly it can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer is bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to a bad defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.
1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hello I am having a problem with my Beverage Air UCF48A Frezzer and was hoping you can help? The problem is this. When I first start the unit it works fine and gets cold fast but then the next day or so it...

You should check the defrost timer, it is located in the back, probably on the left. The timer can stick. Next time your unit is hot inside, remove the back and turn the defrost timer clockwise (there is a little knob that clicks when you turn it) see if the unit comes on then. If it does you will need to replace this timer. If not you may have a thermostat problem or possibly a refrigeration problem. The part # for the timer is 502-171A. The part # for thermostat, if needed, is 502-111A check on to see who your local parts supplier is.

Refrigerator Keeps running

Replacing the thermostat should correct the problem. Be sure to install the thermstat exactly as the one you are removing, assuming it hasn't been changed prior. Hope this helps
