Amcor a12000e not blowing out cold air


Halo

Inside of the unit you will find (see attatchment) a feeler bulb witch will be faulty. You might only find 1 feeler bulb witch will be highly rare most of them has two, one for heating and one for cooling.
Now what happens is on the evaporater where it will be located is if on heating the fan does not start until the bulb picks up that the evaporator is warm enough same goes for cooling, only defrence is that it starts the fan when the evaporator is cold enough.

Hope this was helpful.

Regards

I have a frost free hotpoint and theres ice on the freezer door and the food inside it what could this be and how,do i fix it


Hallo

Frost free means there is an evaporater coil behind the backplate of the inside of your fridge.

How it works is a fan is for example installed in the lower back of your fridge and the evaporater above the fan covered by a plastic cover/steel plate and now the fan is pulling the warm air from the top over the evaporater ( the evaporater is then pulling the warm air into the evaporater without increasing the temperature of the evaporater) and dehumidify at the same time and blowing the cold air out a the bottom of the backplate while the warm air moving to the top where it could repeatedly repeat this action.

Tell me what is the condition of your freezers door seal? It can only be caused by humidity getting in so it mean the door is not sealing 100%.

Fridge isn't staying cold, the freezer works OK.


if your freezer is working fine and you hear your compressor running you could have a frozen drain tube or more than likely the evaperator motor fan has failed.this is the fan that circulates the cold air from freezer throughout frigerator.what kind of unit is it?side by side or top mount freezer or what?let me know

My GE model GSH25JFTCBB side by side is not cooling in the fridge side. Freezer seems to be doing fine. What could be wrong


you could have a defrost problem,a bad damper,bad computer board.first thing,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing in there?you should,if not the evap fan motor is bad,if it's blowing touch the back inside wall of the freezer to see if any frost or like snow is on it,from the bottom up in the freezer remove the second bin of food and touch the back inside wall with your hand,if it has frost or snow you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,heater,sensor or board,if there isn't anything on the wall then you have a bad damper,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,then the evaporator fan in the freezer blows the cold air over into the fridge section,you have a damper in your machine that opens and closes when it's cold enough or when it needs to get colder,the door on the damper isn't opening to let the cold air in when it calls for cold air.if you can write back and let me know what you find and hopefully we can get it fixed.

The evaporater coillis frezed up but evaporater moter ,comperaser & condenser fan is working


Hello,
That is going to be a problem with one of the components in the automatic defrost system. It is supposed to automatically defrost. Turning it off overnight to melt it will defiently help. If you are mechinacally inclined here is what to check to see why it isn't defrosting;




DEFROST HEATER ...remove back wall of freezer and you will see a black heater at the bottom of the coil thats frosted up,it looks similar to the bake element in your oven,or in some cases it is going to be a spiraled wires inside of a glass tube. To check it,use a multimeter set to the lowest ohms of resistiance setting and follow and find the wires at the top of that frosted coil,unplug/disconnect those wires and check for continuty with around 5-20 ohms of resistiance. If it has that amount of ohms the heater is good. If your meter display does not change or displays OL the defrost heater is broke and needs to be replaced

DEFROST TERMINATION THERMOSTAT... it's round and has 2 wires and clips to the top of that frosted up coil. IT MUST BE CHECKED WHEN COLD SO BEST TO DO WHEN FROST IS STILL BUILT UP. To check it disconnect the wires on it and check for ZERO ohms of resistiance. As with the heater if the meter display OL or doesnt change,it is the problem

DEFROST CONTROL...it is hard to check for a semi unskilled person and if the heater or defrost t-stat check good its going to be the problem. It will NOT be in the freezer it could be on back wall or inside the control panel in the refrigerator section.

Hotpoint (GE)CTX18GJB not cold enough. Just had serviced - tech replaced defrost timer and defrost terminator. The top located freezer gets cold and can hear the fan running - but still not cold enough...


Hello,

I agree with the tech. if the refriderator isn't frosting it isn't working,their is only 1fan and its in the freezer,The tech could have missed some frost build up that is blocking the air flow into the fresh food section,if he removed all the frost it could take up to 24 hours to get cold ,it should slowly geta bit colder throughout the day,if by tomorrow its still not working have the tech come back and check for frost build up on the vents for air flow into fresh food compartment.
To reiderate their is two types of refrigerators,one that you have to manually defrost and a automatic defrost type where the defrost system which is comprised of the defrost heater,timer&termination t-stat will automatically melt the frost

Evaporater coil was frozen. Thawed out. Fan is running. Refrigerator was warm. Restarted, refrigerator warm. Freezer to cold frosting. Dampner to refrigerator not staying open.


My first guess is defrost timer, is stuck in defrost, if you can find it, turn it, and if the compressor and fans turn on, you got your answer.

Firdge turns on but never gets cold. Runs constantly. Refridgerant maybe?


Is the condenser fan turning? Is the evaporater fan turning? Check the evaporater at the freezer compartment it should have fine frost all the way if no frost or partly frosted may be low on freon.Be sure there is no air leaks around door or something. Hope this helps.

The refrigerator/freezer isn't cold anymore. The light is one. The icemaker is still running, but no ice. The refrig. side started to go first, then the freezer side about 5 days later. Now it just blows...


Remove back wall cover from freezer compartment. Should have a nice even frost pattern. If large amount off ice buildup is on evaporater than air can not flow through entire unit correctly. This means that unit is not defrosting properly. Check continuity on defrost heater, if good replace defrost thermostat, located as a clipped on device at top of evaporater.
