Question about Engel Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a 40l engel that isn't cooling any more. Working fine as a freezer a week or two ago. Sounds like it's running but could be the fan. Is there any way to tell if the compressor is operating?

If one side outlet is hot it is pumping. the other side should be cold. It might be short of refrigerant or not pumping. Is the compressor very hot?

SOURCE: refrigerator compartment not cooling

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

SOURCE: Does not cool. Compressor is running, fans are

Hi, Look in the freezer section and see if there is frost building up on the rear inside panel. If the is frost, on of three parts are bad in the automatic defrost.
If there is no frost, the compressor might be weak and not pumping the coolant as strong as it should.
Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer sevtion and see if the evaporator is frosting at all.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further with this issue.

Clean out the coils at the very bottom of the refrigerator from all of that lint/dust buildup it makes your system inefficient

Freezer appears to be working, but not the refrigerator section - at most that will only get to 50 degrees. Manually switching to propane makes no difference.

Sounds like your cooling fan is out. If the freezer is fine and the fridge isn't, then the cooling fan isn't blowing the cold air the the fridge. Or you could have ice obstructing the airflow.

Freezer part is working fine. fridge part is barely cool on the highest setting

Sounds like your cooling tube ia blocked by an ice buildup or something. Some refrigerators have a fan to draw the cold from the freezer to the refrigerator and if the fan quits, then the cold is not drawn out of the freezer.

If it isn't a frost free freezer then it is probably just a case of needing to defrost the freezer.

Refrigerator not cooling...makes hissing noise

From your problem description I would say it sounds like maybe the condenser fan is not running. If that fan does not run, the compressor will overheat, and get very unhappy, LOUDLY. There is a fiberboard cover on the back of the unit, unplug the unit, remove the cover and inspect the fan, it should turn freely if you nudge it with your finger. If it does not turn freely, you will need to make it so by lube, removing foreign object (dead mouse once for me) dust dragons etc... or replace the fan if necessary.
