Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have an almost 2 yr old 4 ton, Carrier a/c. Performance Series Fan Coils. After no use for approx 2 weeks, when the a/c is turned on, I get a very bad odor that vanishes in a couple minutes. Opened the unit, there is some standing water in the bottom pan. Also, the galvanized steel (I think) coil end caps are pretty heavily rusted. Any comments? Thanks I couldn't find a category, so choosed "fridge".

    Sorry for the response delay, Candyh.

    Is your solution for the odor or rust or both? Is the coke "poured" over the coils or rustewd endcaps?

    Thanks

Maytag refrigerator not cold.


do you have a full frost pattern (coating) on freezer coils or see a ice ball, if ice ball Leak in system or bad valve in compressor. not worth fixing. go on (repair clinic .com).
you have a dampener and a fan to let the cold air go to all the areas check to make sure fan is running push in light switch in freezer and llisten for fan could be problem or no power to fan from main control board.
Dampener is flapper door that lets cold air from freezer go into ref. section
are your doors sealed, gaskets, frapper between door on ref section closing.
also your return air ducts need to be clear of ice, is your ice maker working that means that it is below 10 degees and repairable.

Samsung RS267LBRS 4 yr old - Fridge suddenly stopped cooling freezer working fine. Took off back panel - fan runs fine and the coils are not iced. Help!


Make sure the temp settings are on the recommended settings. If they are than the freezer control arm is probably stuck in the shut position or the vent is plugged with ice. you can re secure Arm or defrost the port.

Beaumark fridge freezer is going on and off


Check the condensor coils for dust, try to see if the condensor fan is blowing air over the coil, check inside the freezer to assure the inside fan is circulating air, and if the "noise" is coming from either of the fan motors, they will need replaced by a service technician.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.
