Acting like a bad thermostat, One thing to check is make sure compressor isnt overheating. If really hot you could have a relay problem on compressor.

OK now I'm wondering are theses numbers your getting 4 -9 the actual temps of the refrigerator and the freezer? and do they feel this cold and correct to you? I know the refrigerator side shouldn't be below 34 or so and definitely not below 32. If this is correct and the numbers are not settings but temps. (Now if you have a touch pad its electronic. If it has knobs it has a separate defrost and thermostat and are electro-mechanical)
If electronic Your control board and possibly defrost control are out.
It would more likely be the sensors going to the board(s) It will both sensors have the possibility of causing your problem. 1 will control the run of the compressor (and this one could and probably is connected to the inside coil) and 1 will control the air damper tween the refdg and freezer compartments, and may turn on the inside fan operation too.

(this would be my first suspect if these are degrees numbers). Look at the thermostat control see if it is attached to the indoor coil (usually the tube leavign the indoor section. If its not attached its not sensing the coil temp and when goes into defrost wala its not senmsing temps like its designed to do. Look for a broken clip or possible a plastic wire tie that holds this sensor in place.

Please get back to me with what you see - find on this look up.

If the compressor will not kick on what you have is either a bad compressor or a bad starting device. Generally the unit will try and start and after 8 seconds or so you will hear a loud tick. That indicates the relay is bad. If the compressor is bad it will usually make a loud humming noise.

The start device is plugged into the side of the compressor. Unplug the frig. You can simply take off the wires to the start device (remember where they go!!!!!) and pull it off. You have two piece, the overload and the relay. The relay is the piece that is most likely the problem. Some machines will have these put together in a white plastic block. You can shake this entire piece and if you hear loud rattling it is broken. Sometimes the relay is visibly burned and blacked where it plugs into the compressor. Anyway, if you do not have this white plastic relay/overload combo, the relay is a brown square shaped plastic piece. Shake it and see if you hear rattling. If not, chances are very good the relay is ok, and the compressor is locked up.

Compressor changes are expensive and unless the frig is extremely nice and cost a pretty penny, they aren't worth fixing. Relays and overloads should not break $100 for the parts, and any tech should be able to change one in under 10 minutes. So if it's a relay fix that puppy! good luck :D

How long can you expect a fridge to last these days??


Hi Joanne
Wow, Is that an open question.....
How long is a piece of string...
I get what you mean though...
Only your Engel Service Dept knows for sure.
They see the returns.
Does it have a compressor or is it based on Heating Elements like an RV Fridge.
If you can hear the compressor running inside, you will know. Compressors don't like being tipped on their side.
I have 1 fridge & 1 Freezer in the back storage room that have been running for thirty years. But I don't think they make em like that any more.
Look after it. Keep the vents clear & hope for the best.
Cheers

My Finch fridge not getting gas to the burner.


If the gas is not passing the press down valve your valve is faulty and should be replaced you should also replace the thermo coupler which goes down to sense the flame in case the flame goes out it shuts off the gas. You should not attempt to replace this valve yourself and should get a qualified gas engineer.

My cpca 291 fxk problem is freezer frosting up and struggles to freeze things and fridge is not cold enough


sounds like your fan motor has seized or burnt out a winding,, this will need replacing. check by holding lid open to raise temp but at the same time hold down the button that the lid presses on when its shut, after about 10min the fan should run.

Motor goes on/off every few second.


You have problem with the motor compressor,it is trying to start, but cannot for one reason or another, could be siezed motor, sticking start relay.etc'
It is stopping and starting due to the motor overload device cutting in and out. it acts as a safety device.
This is usually associated with a serious malfunction..Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Indesit fridge freezer not getting cold (2 years old)


I would first check to see if the evaporator in the freezer is all iced up. If it is thats whay you do not have any cooloing. And If that is the case you have a defrost problem and it is not short on gas. If you see only a few coils on the evaporator frosted up then you do have a leak in the system and my be covered under the manufactures warrenty.
