35 litre Engel. Not getting cold.

My Engel fridge is about 10 years old. It sounds like it's running okay, but it isn't getting cold at all. I was wondering if you think it's worth getting regassed/repaired?

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

Frigidaire FRS26R2AW5 Refrigerator too cold on fridge side.

If the dampers are closing when you select warmer temp with the fridge temp control, there really isn't a way for the cold air to enter the fridge. Check to make sure the damper isn't opening back up after a while.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.

If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

Inglis Refrigerator causes disturbances in tv, computer, etc.
