SOURCE: My avanit 308YWT compact refrig isn't cooling on

hi
it seems there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dyer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns.
hope this will solve the prob
if u ve further queary plzz do inform us.
all the best

Avanti 308ywt compressor keeps running but frig will not get cold


Nataly if there is not any cold air anywhere and compressor is running that indicates a Freon leak and worth very little due to repair cost. You must be sure that compressor is running not the fan noise

Avanti fridge not freezing up


If the freezer is not freezing I would first check the temperature control. If the contacts are not closing on the temp control then the compresser will never come on. If you determine the control is closing the I would put my hand on the compresser. If it is very hot and not vibrating I would say you have a bum compressor. If it is vibrating then I would look at a plugged off cap tube in which case you need a professional to come in and take care of the problem. Good luck

I have a compact avanti regrigerator. It doesnt get cold anymore. What do you think might be the problem? I bought it since 2007.


There are three possible reasons for this;
\the thermostat needs replacing
\The refrigerant has leaked out
\ the compressor has failed
Either way you will need a technician to look at this as it involves an electrical diagnosis

For the temperature, to make it colder to we turn the knob towards the higher numbers or lower?


Normally the lower number is more cooling and hence the setting is ideal to be kept at mid point.
In twin door adjustment witth single control lower setting more cooling to freezer and as it goes up the temp of the fridge increases.
So you might need to recheck with this model

Avanti chest freezer cf199 will not freeze. A


Sounds like your freezer has lost its charge of refrigerant. That motor sound is the compressor. And the internal thermal overload is tripping it out every minute because refrigerant also cools the compressor motor. Have a licensed repairman find the leak, seal it,and recharge it with R134a refrigerant.

Bad compressor. check the compressor with the unit on with a volt meter and see what voltage you are getting and also if it way to hot to touch by hand is another sign compressor is bad

Fridge temp high


freon and a compressor is about as easy as it gets....Loss of freon will cause erratic cooling...also if you can feel it touch the compressor after it shuts off if if feels like its really hot ....bad compressor that kicks an internal breaker....bad news then time for new one also only a airconditioner man can put freon in no 12 . but freon will stay for 50 to 80 years for i tested some old fridges and still cool fine.
