Turn unit around and remove black cover. Observe if condenser fan is turning and compressor is operating.

Proline fridge/freezer the fridge is frosting up at the back but food is not cold enough


Hi.

You have a problem with the defrost system. Try disconnecting power overnight and allowing fridge to defrost. The problem will not occur immediately after defrosting, but will probably restart after few days, when the evaporator coils freeze again. In that case the defrost system must be tested and repaired.

The defrost system comprises defrost thermostat, heater, defrost control and fan. The parts that fail more commonly are thermostat and heater. Both parts are located behind freezer firewall and tested reading impedance with a multimeter.

A test on the defrost system can be done by performing a complete defrost manually (remove food and leave power disconnected overnight). If the fridge restarts working after defrost, then problem was the defrost system. In that case the problem may return after few days or weeks, meaning that one part in the defrost system is faulty.Parts must be tested.

If the defrost makes no change, then there is a different problem. The damper ventilation system , the temperature control or the refrigerant gas pressure may be the problem. When the problem is one of these faults you get the compressor is running regularly, but will stay on most of the time.

If the motor is humming and clicking most of the time, but not properly starting, then the problem is usually the starter relay/capacitor. Relay and capacitors can be replaced to fix the problem.

Here a tip explaining how to deal with a similar problem on a different fridge model: Fridge not cooling. Procedure is similar on your model.

Hi, was wondering if you could help. I have an Electrolux fridge Model ER6632I that has suddenly stopped cooling. This fridge is approx 8 yrs old. I opened up to the rear of fridge and found that...



Seems that the compressor has some fault within the unit as it takes in more current under pressure. Sometimes it can be due to fault within the compressor, failure of the valve , O-rings. Now shut down the fridge for about 6 hours and then plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. , if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.

GE PSS26LSRE refrigerator\r\nfan is running, compressor is hot, but not cooling, please help


Please shut off the fridge for about few hours and then restart the fridge. If you notice that there is still no cooling from the freezer then it for sure that your compressor is not pumping or that your gas is run out. If however the cooling has returned then you will have to make sure that your thermostat is fine, the auto deffrost timer is also working Ok. You must seek help if your are not familiar with the work of gas filling or checking for leaks in the system.Take an estimate and proceed. Hope I could help;Good day
