Question about Refrigerators
Hi there , i will check for a manual for you as soon as i can , one thing you must do before you call a tech out .
try this out first .
Plug the fridge in with the back facing you so you can see and hear it, make sure you have a good torch on hand and something soft for your knees because you will need to get to the bottom of the fridge when you check it, ok turn it on and listen to it , if you can hear the compressor running (black rounded object with pipes coming out of it ) thats a good thing wait approximately 15 minutes and then lightly feel the smallest pipe coming out , it should be getting warmer , the longer it on the hotter this pipe gets but if it gets really hot then it could be the fan underneath the fridge which cools the little coil down , this fan should be running when ever the compressor is running, if its not running and the compressor is not running either then the system maybe in a defrost cutout point in which case you will need to either locate the defrost timer and turn the knob clockwise until it turns the compressor on or if the pipes don't get hot and only stay lightly warm, the system may have lost its gas charge in which case a tech will need to carry out this type of problem due to equipment required for this type of work,
Also if the fridge was left off for a long time it may have a seized compressor in which case depending on what part of the world your in a new fridge would be the best option because repairs could cost up to $600 bucks ,
A defrost timer should be purchasable from your local refrigeration supplier if your not sure give me a model and year and i'll hunt down a wiring diagram for you .
I hope this information helps :)
Thank you and have a nice day :)
