    Hi Localwonder,



    Yes, very occasionally the compressor will come on and seems alot louder than before, its not "gurgling" so much but it is still warm inside?



    Cheers

    Hi, is the compressor making a lot of noises and is it cycling on and off in a abnormal pattern?

    Are the coils frozen over?

Ok, this will confirm a major compressor fault. the main seal has failed. you will need to replace the compressor in order to restore the unit to its original cooling state.

If you can give me the model number and brand of your unit, i can direct you to some reasonably priced compressor kits if you would like.

Only half of the freezer and half of the fridge are working


heat rises and cold stays down on the lower shelves,if the evap fan motor isn't blowing this will happen,next time send the brand name and model number off of the machine,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing you have a bad evap fan motor,all it does is the freezer gets cold,the fan blows the cold air from the freezer to the fridge section,also if the fan isn't working when you remove the back inside wall of the freezer if there's any ice melt it out with a hair dryer,unplug the machine before you start working on it,call your parts store,give them the model number and they will sell you the parts you need.

I have a Performa side by side 7 years old, had a repairman out because it started running constantly...Dx was there is a freon leak. Isn't this uncommon for a fridge that is not THAT old?


It happens alot in my 18+ years i have seen them leak 1 day later to 30 or 40 years later.If it was running and not stoping and freezer and fridge warm or hot it may be a leak if it runs alot and freezer is cold and fridge warm then it is not a freon leak.

Camper fridge dont cool


I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.
