Question about Lynx Refrigerators
Background info. This happened about 8 weeks ago which we fixed by defrosting the unit. We have done that again this time but the unit is not getting down to the required temps. (ie freezer not freezing and fridge temp at room temp). Last Friday our solar / mains power switch blew and we only had solar available to use till Monday when we were able to transfer to mains power which we are running on at this time. The solar batteries were not sufficient to keep running for this length of time even though we were only using it for the fridge / freezer. Consequently when the battery deteriorated the power started to flicker and after this the fridge /freezer alarm came up and our problem started. The fridge is set at 4 deg & the freezer at - 20 deg. Both these lights are showing as well as the alarm light however both the fridge & the freezer are not getting down to these temperatures.

Sounds like a couple of different issues here....
First, the defrost element may checkout, but is it being turned on??? It would seem as though the controlboard/timer are bad and not bringing it on to defrost the coils...
However the coils maybe frosting up more then usual because it also seems as though either the unit is low on charge or the condenser coils are plugged up and the heat is not being disipated properly...
Check the condenser coils to make sure they are clean....if the unit still is having a hard time cooling then it is likely that you have a small leak in the refrigerant system and it will need to be found, repaired, and the system recharged...
Here are a couple of tips that I wrote that will give you more details about hese things...
