If the compressor is shot, then there is not any reason to keep it. The parts and labor will cost you as much as a new fridge and then at that is not guarnteed to work correctly after the job is finished, or how long it will last afterwards

    If the compressor is really shot like he says. He can add all the freon he wants and change you like crazy for the freon and the problem still will not be fixed. This almost sounds like the compressor is not shot and I would recommend having another company come out and let them disagnosis it since anyone who knows compressors knows that if the compressor shot adding freon will not do any good at all.

Fridge and freezer not staying cold


You didn't give age, make or model of your fridge, but I have found on two, made in the last 15 years that the newer models have a solid state starter switch on the compressor, and they don't last like the older coil-magnetic starters. They are a fairly cheap fix at around $50.00. Ask your repairman to test the compressor with his universal starter/capacitor most carry with them. Keith L.

My Amana 26 cu ft side by side quit cooling entirely in the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it worth it to get a repairman or should we just get a new frig. This one is 6 years old


I suggest get help with repairman.6 year old is not very old.Refrigerators have life more then 8 to 10 years.The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

Sounds like the compressor, or a refrigerant leak. Being a year old I would call Frigidaire and try to get it fixed or replaced under warranty.

You probably have a leak in the evaporator and there is not enough refrigerant left to cool properly. Sub Zero has a 12 year warranty so You may want to replace the unit. You need to call a servicer to check it out.

Fridge isn't cold


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

SubZero fridge problems


Ice buildup on the back left wall is the sign of an evaporator leak. Not something you can fix yourself, at some point it is going to be completely out of gas, I would call for service now

Freezer Compressor Leaks Oil and Stopped Working


Hi I'm a subzero asc (Autorized service center) Subzero would not be responsible, your unit is out of there warranty. Now if the service company your dealing with is any good they can get a new compressor under a part warranty from there part distributor. Also in my many years working on subzero I have never seen oil dripping from the compressor unless you have a leak somewhere in the sealed system. Unfortunately the only thing you can do is see if your service provider will fix the unit. they will charge you labor if they get the part in warranty. It's possible that the service provider did not to the job properly but that's your word against there's. Good luck I hope everything works out for you..

Both sides are warm


can yiou tell me what the repairman did? the ticking is the air damper but the cooling is a separate issue. call a different repairman to have them take a look at the compressor, heat exchanger or evaporator as these could all the be source of the problem.
