If you mean that you installed a compressor or put refrigerant in it, the unit that is, it could have a small leak and when you "put it up for the winter" it leaked out. When refrigerant is under pressure and on it will barely leak out if you have a small leak. They can go without a charge for a long time, but when you turn them off if they have a leak it will all leak out. Make sure you compressor is on and running. Once you put a refrigerator in service it is not really wise to "put them in storage." If you can keep from putting it in storage it would be better to leave them running at a little higher temperature setting. You won't be getting in and out of the unit as much because you won't be there to use it so it will not use as much electricity, but they are ment to stay plugged in and running once they are put into service.

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

I have a Dometic 2650 refrigerator in my RV. It is leaking a scent of ammonia and we do not know what is causing this or what is leaking. PLease help immediately .


Shut it off immediately and do not use it. Ammonia is sign of coolant leak, thus cooling unit is leaking/faulty, and as I'm sure you know, ammonia is dangerous to inhale etc. Sorry to say but, it's time for a new fridge, and at very least a cooling unit, but speaking from experience, your better off buying a complete new unit. I've seen many people replace cooling unit to save a few hundred dollars, then end up replacing circuit board, and various other item one after the other down the road. New fridge comes with year or 2 warranty as well.

I have a Rm2804 2 way fridge I run on propane fridge lights but will not get cold. fridge was completely over hauled about 3years ago Thank you...


There are only two things that cause it not to cool with a flame that lights and it does not cool.

1. System blockage
2. Loss of Coolant.

Sadly the only way to solve the problem is to have some refrigeration prssure gages connected to the system and check internal pressures. If you had it overhauled 3 years ago the fittings for connecting the gages should already be installed.

Who knows the valve stem in one of the fittings could have leaked over time or... a pin hole in the system some where.

You were correct in you assumption that since you had not smelled ammonia that it should not be the coolant system.

Just so you know a coolant leak area will appear yellowish in color if your using a white flash light.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

When out temp is below 50, heater does not produce enough heat


Sounds to me like the thermostat or thermostat wires are wrong.
If you open the t-stat make sure no bare wires are touching one another.
Typical wire codes/colors are red to R,green to G,yellow to Y,w to white or w1,orange to O,blue to common(C),brow to E.
These should be the same in the air handler as well as the outside condensing unit.
Some installer may use different colors for some other reason.
Verify these colors throughout and report back.
Has the problem existed for the 2.5 years or is it recent?

GE HotPoint HSS25 not cooling, but interior lights are on


video on troubleshooting
http://gei.portals.streamos.com/cc/channel.php?emcid=1416&empid=4533&packageid=0000

if after you try the things on the video you may have to replace the motherboard. you can reset the frige by unplugin the power and pluging it back in. If you decide not to replace the motherboard as the unit will work fine untill you press the dispencer i reccomend unplugging the dispenser unit at the top of the freezer door so the frige will not accidently shut down just unplug the connector leading down the door. your frige will work fine without this connection just no water or ice at the door. If your frige is still under waranty (1year parts& labor) call them up and they will fix it.
The motherboard on this frige seems to be sensitive to surges and the transformer for the ice/water dispensencer goes bad. repacing the motherboard corrects this problem they cost about $75 to $90 on the appliance websites to install the new one it is very easy and you need to unplug your fridge and pull the metal cover off the back of the unit by removing four screws. the cables are all different size and can not be pluged in wrong the replacement board should come with instructions. to remove the board you may need needle nose pliers to push in the tabbs on the white board standoffs it should take about 10-15 minutes

I have solved this problem by replacing the back board if you have any questions I can help out

Refer Norcold DE 0051 not getting cold


Your cooling unit is shot, I suggest. Most likely, you've lost the R341 refrigerant. Norcold, so they can sell you another cooling unit at $500+, does not make these little fridges with a service port so you can recharge the system. Same with Dometic. Solution is to spend, again, $500+ for a new sealed unit that will fail in relatively short order (I'm on my second in five years) or buy a better refrigerator. I'm opting for a new fridge this go around (Vitrifrigo). Vitrifrigo has the needed service port.

Frige problem


This is almost a word for word common problem. On frost free fridge freezers of this type all cooling is generated through the freezer side and is merely forced into the fridge side through airflow. Therefore if you have a problem with the fridge you have a problem with the freezer section. The most likely cause is that the coil is frozen up. We would always suggest defrosting unit overnight in case it was simply a door left ajar being the cause of the fault. If the unit then pulls the fridge temp down and it was not the door ajar then you probably have a defrost problem (heater or defrost thermostat, or defrost timer). If it fails to pull the fridge temp down on restarting then it could be the fan or part of the defrost circuit or even possible the cooling circuit. The normal outcome after defrosting is that the temp will drop in the fridge due to air circulation improved, which will probably remain cool for 2-3 weeks until the coil becomes frozen again. On either result I would contact an engineer on the 2nd failure occurrs so that the engineer can establish the exact cause. Hope this helps.

Fridge problems - frigidaire


Sort of sounds like the adaptive defrost board is bad and you are not going into a defrost cycle. Do you have ice build up on the lower interior freezer section? Are the vent slots full of frost/ice? Ideally, pull the freezer shelfs out and take the little aluminum panel off the interior back to look at the coils. Are they basically a block of ice and frost? The problem happens when the unit doesn't go into defrost cycle and the coils freeze up. That blocks the air flow in the freezer so you get frozen food at the bottom but soft stuff at the top. And the frige just can't get enough cool/cold air from the freezer section to cool anymore. Power surges or blackouts, etc. can just destroy the defrost circuit board. Without good air flow the unit is not going to cool properly.
