Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Crystal Cold 18 cu/ft propane refrigerator/freezer. I've had this unit for 7 years now and I clean the burner and the flue on regular intervals. After this last cleaning the unit would not stay cold and I turned the thermostat to the coldest setting with the same result. I clean the unit again with the same result.It has a good light blue flame. What could be the problem?

Hi mmpdk

thanks for using fixya.

this has go to be the thermal fuse or the capacitor for the thermostat assembly. These part control whether the unit gets cold or not and sustain the chose temperature.

the parts mentioned abive is usually located in the background near the thermostat controller or the power supply, near the heater assembly away from the blue flame.

these part replacements can be done through DIY, but best if you bring it to a service center.

hope this helps.

regards,

voodoo

I have a new Crystal Cold 18 Cu. It keeps shutting down. How long should it be at maximum before I turn it to a medium cold ? I have a 1 inch exhaust linked to the chimney venting outside.Pierre


It has to be absolutely level to prevent damage. Place the level in the freezer compartment and adjust the leveler feet to get it level. Once that is done, put a thermometer in the freezer and watch how long it takes to freeze ice. Now about that vent . How long is the pipe? If it is too long, it won't vent properly and the hi heat sensor in the flame compartment will shut it down for safety.

Look and see if coils need cleaning below. Do a good clean. Feel the compressor, if it's hot to the touch or cold it may have a bad relay. A relay can fail to drop circuits (causing the compressor to overheat) and open (causing the compressor to be idle).themobilian_2327.jpg

    My propane fridge will not get cold


    You have described an Ammonia refrigerator. The chemicals in the system are Ammonia, water, and hydrogen. In a crazy system of events, heating the bottom of the unit will cause the chemicals to seperate and then reunite in a complete cycle.
    If you have never smelled a strong ammonia smell, then yes, the upside down thing will many times work.
    The chemicals can become seperated in the wrong areas of the interior components.
    Perform the upside down thing for 24 to 48 hours. Return to normal. Pause it for minimum of 4 yours and try again.
    If the burner is working correctly, then you should see some results.
