    Excuse me! If your refrigerator is compressor based it is completely different from the possible reasons I suggested as it works onexpansion not partial presure law.

If your cooling unit gradually quit working it's more than likely due to Hydrogen diffusion.This process is not easy to understand.Hydrogen,having atomic # 1,is the lightest element there is.Almost all absorption cooling units are charged with it.Actually Helium works good too,and it is inert while Hydrogen is extremely flammable and burns with an invisible flame.A lot of older cooling units suffer from this problem and the manufacturers won't tell you about it.The Hydrogen actually diffuses through the pores of the steel tubing.There is no leak in the cooling unit per se.The pressure in the cooling unit may be down about 50 or 60 pounds from what it should be around 330 PSI.The Ammonia will now boil off at a higher pressure than it should.Due to partial pressure law,the Ammonia only sees it's own vapor pressure not the total Hydrogen pressure.So when the Liquid Ammonia boils off in the upper evaporator,it boils off at a higher temperature than it should.This also starves the lower evaporator of liquid Ammonia,and cooling only occurs where liquid Ammonia is boiling off.Please also go to: www.marvinspropanerefrigerators.com

Those are the small radiator like assemblies either under the unit or in the back. Use a long brush if under the unit.

Defrost completely. The unit is probably iced up. Make sure your gaskets are clean and sealing well. If it happens again, we need to find out why. Also...clean the condenser.

    The condenser is the coils that are generally located under the fridges...they reject heat into the air. They full of dust and gunk and cut efficiency. They should be cleaned once a year.

    Window shopping and introducing lots of moisture into the box is a bad idea. That's what caused the problem. If you're going to put hot tea in the fridge...it will cost more to cool it than leaving it out. Also, some of the steam/moisture will remain in the fridge. Avoid it.

Refrigerator stopped cooling 2 days ago. Freezer works fine. What is broken? Appliance is four years old. Replaced compressor almost exactly 1 year ago.


Check the fan in the freezer and be sure it's working, isn't blocked by product or isn't clogged with ice. If this fan isn't working the refrigerator section won't cool properly.

We have an rca fidge in which we think the defrosting thermostat is blown and we need a new one. b/c the fidge is not cooling and the freezer is freezing. unfortunately stores are saying they do not carry...


1ST OPEN FREEZER DOOR AND HOLD THE DOOR BUTTON IN WITH THE DOOR COMPLETELY OPEN UNTIL YOU HEAR THE FAN RUNNING, MAYBE 5 TO 10 MIN. THE FAN SHOULD RUN FAST NOT SLOW. WHEN YOU HEAR THE FAN RUN FAST YOU KNOW IT IS WORKING PROPERLY. IF IT RUNS SLOW CHANGE FAN MOTOR.
CHECK FOR CLOGGED DRAIN HOLE AND BLOCKED AIR FLOW DUCT IN THE TOP PART OF THE FREEZER. IF THIS IS BLOCKED WITH ICE DEFROST WITH HOT WATER UNTIL BLOCKAGE IS REMOVED. IF THE FAN IS RUNNING PROPERLY, AND ALL IS CLEAR THEN THE AIR WILL FLOW DOWN TO THE FRIDGE. ALSO MAKE SURE YOUR FREEZER IS NOT JAMMED FULL OF FOOD AND THAT ALL VENTS ARE CLEAR OF OBSTRUCTIONS. SET YOUR DIALS ON THE PROPER SETTTING. IT TAKES ABOUT 24 HRS. TO ADJUST. IF DEFROST WAS BAD IT WOULD NOT BE COOL UP TOP.
THE DEFROST OR THERMOSTAT CONTROLS THE TIMING OF DEFROST MODE WHICH IF BAD THE COMPRESSOR WOULD NOT WORK AND THUS NOT COOL AT ALL.
TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION ABOUT WHAT BRAND TO USE CALL A COMPANY NAMED WILMAR OR HOME DEPOT SUPPLY, TELL THEM THE PART # IF YOU WANT TO REPLACE YOUR THERMOSTAT AND THEY CAN TELL YOU WHAT ONE YOU CAN USE WIT YOUR RCA..I'M PRETTY SURE YOU CAN USE FRIDGIDAIRE OR GE HOT POINT WITH MINOR IF ANY ALTERATIONS. TRY WHAT I SUGGESTED 1ST BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE THERMOSTAT OR FAN.

Kenmore refrigerator stopped cooling 6 days ago and started working again 2 days later but not very cold.Stopped cooling again 2 days ago.Now it is frosted up in the back of the freezer,What could cause...


There are several things that could be causing this. Your compressor could be going bad. Your freon is low. Think of your refrigerator as a air conditioner. Pull it out and vacuum all the dust from your filters, make sure the water is draining properly and not clogged up. Is your unit still under warranty. How old is your unit. Try this. Unplug the unit for about 5-10 minutes, this will give it enough time for the compressor to cool down. Plug it back in and listen for the compressor to kick on. That's the big black round thing at the bottom in the back of your refrigerator. Listen to it and what the sound is, does it click when it turns on, does it shudder when it turns on. Let me know the sound. By unplugging the unit and doing this the compressor should kick on in 1-3 minutes after plugging it back in. If your unit is over 8 years old you might consider another one. Check out craigslist, as you can get some great deals. Let me know if I can help you further.

Fidge freezer is not working properly


Get british gas homecare cover for heating and appliances, don't tell 'em the freezer isn't working, then a month later report it as a fault, they'll fix it. Unscrupulous i know but what can ya do? Otherwise get a hotpoint engineer, sign up for their maintenance plan.

Regrigerator stopped, now freezer too.


It is due to the defrost timer is not working. Once it is replaced, you should be good for another year. The information is given by the repairman. I have this replaced two days ago. The MayTag part number is: 61005988.

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly


The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.

Sub zero 650 fidge holding at 53 degrees


That depends on if your model has a five or ten year warranty on the compressor. Your problem may not be warranty related. Check and see if the condenser is clean, check for a frozen cooling coil.

Troubleshoot fridge repair


Your description is a little hard to understand, but sounds like an evaporator fan is not working. Its the one inside the freezer half. Its not visible, but there are vents that air can be felt by if its working. Or remove the panel covering it to see.
