Question about U-Line 75R Refrigerator

3 Answers

Lighns on - nothing else

I have a U-Line 75R. It has stopped working, although the light comes on when you open the door - so there is power. When we first got the refrigerator, it did the same thing. The service guy came out, said it was the defrost timer, and reset it. The unit has worked fine since (about 5 years). Assuming that this is the solution this time, how do you "reset the defrost timer?"

    Ditto! I have the same problem, lights on but not cool. Just had an electrician stop by and diagnosed the thermostat control is the problem. Anyone have a part number so I can order one or at least sound somewhat knowledgeable when calling around? (This refrigerator has been discontinued according the the U-Line website.) Thanks!

The 75R does not have a timer. The fan & compressor are powered on the same power leads, downstream from the thermostat. Interior light operation confirms power to the unit. It does sound like thermostat could be the problem. Visit to contact U-Line's Support Website.

Be careful, the thermostat does switch line voltage (120VAC). You must unplug the unit to service

It's likely the thermostat. My parent's just diagnosed their 75R for that. Jumpered across the thermostat connections and the compressor and fan kick in.

Well i have a 75r also with the same symptoms but there's no freezer in this model so I don't know how it could be the defrost timer.

1999 Corolla..........365,000 KM!!!!!!!!!!! Today all 4 power windows AND Power door lock stopped working. Of course its around freezing and 2 of the windows are slightly open!!! Nothing else seems to...

First I would check the fuses and relay. Second I would remove the interior door panel and check the connector pins on the motor to the window. Should that not work, you can disconnect the motor and force crank the window up. Although it sounds like a fuse/relay issue as they seem to be the only items not working. Let me know.

Refrigerator compressor motor will not run.

Does the fan work? If yes then the compressor has a relay and overload that might be bad. Or it could be a compressor that is bad. If its a compressor then you will need to have a tech verify that it is the problem. If nothing is running then it could be a thermostat thats not switching it on. Let me know if you need any more help with it.
