Kelvinator Cyclic 330 not getting cold enough

I have a Kelvinator Cyclic 330 Fridge only that doesn't get cold enough anymore. The plate at inside back of fridge still gets a little icy where the thermo cable joins up and is cold to touch but fridge not cold enough and food going off. Any ideas?

Empty the refigerator and freezer, unplug it for about 8 hours, leave freezer door open so it will completely defrost. Plug it back in for 4 hours and close doors before you fill it back up with food. If you have a thermometer, check the interior temperatures before you fill it back up. Refigerator should be around 42 degrees F.

SOURCE: My fridge is too cold

I wrote under "guest" earlier on Aug 5th. I jave since discovered that the problem is a manufacturer problem. Apparently Liebherr had problems with their sensors, which they have since corrected, but they were put in all the earlier fridge/biofresh. I contacted the Liebherr agent in Melbourne Australia where mine came from (Andi-Co), and they have sent someone out to replace the sensor free of charge (mine has been out of warranty since March 2008). The sensor tells the compressor when to shut off, and when faulty does not do this so the compressor keeps running and freezes everything. I did have to make a bit of a fuss though and write them a letter before they came out. I printed out this page as evidence that it was clearly a manufacturing problem, which they have now confirmed. So I suggest you ask your supplier to fix the problem free of charge. Good Luck!

SOURCE: freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough

Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

Kelvinator Cyclic 330, Model No: CS334A-R


Tonight, get a battery flash light, turn it on, put it in the fridge and close the fridge door. Then turn off all the lights in the room. If you can see any light escaping around the fridge door, the door seals aren't working properly, and need replacing.
This is the main reason why too much water is being condensed and causing your fridge drip tray to overflow.

Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

How do you defrost the kelvinator cyclic 300 fridge?


hi,
a manual defrost? unplug and get a 9by11 cake pan and a bunch of towels and a hairdryer. put the hairdryer on LOW only and get it positioned in the freezer (door) compartment so its pointing towards the back. cake pan in the bottom towels below. and on the floor. leave the door open about 3 or 4 inches but NOT shut so you have some air circulation. and check it frequently. make sure the hair dryer isnt pointed at the plastics at all. takes a day. pull it from the wall, remove the rear access cover behind the fridge and blow it out with a vac or air compressor too. theres an access panel inside the freezer and if your handy, your ice blockage causing that problem lives behind there in the freezer. use caution if your going to attempt taking that plate off inside. use nothing sharp.

Where abouts is the thermostat inside the fridge there are white and yellow wires that go to either side of the fridge and the yeallow ones are broken what are these wires for it is a kelvinator C375vm


It sounds like you have a cyclic defrost fridge,Kelvinators were originally fitted with heat assist thermostats,so in order for the fridge to come back on a yellow wire heater was run around the cooling evaporator in the fridge compartment start running again at approx +4C so when the element fused the fridge did not start again until approx +12C.So instead of replacing heater a different thermo was used that came back on at +4c deg regardless.Kind Regards.
