AIR FLOW IS THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A DEFROST PROBLEM BLOCKING THE AIR FLOW. OR THE FAN IS NOT WORKING. IF THERE IS FROST ON THE LOWER BACK WALL INSIDE YOU HAVE A DEFROST PROBLEM. REMOVE PANEL AND DEFROST AND CALL FOR SERVICE.

Portable A/C: Compressor runs intermittently and doesn't cool room


Your issue sounds like either a bad "pressure switch" or that the unit is low on "Freon." Either of these problems will cause the compressor to start and run shortly then compressor cuts off, then and repeats itself.

From your description It really does Not seem to be a "bad board in that unit" because the compressor is starting up, even though the compressor is not staying on long enough to cool said area.

Refrigerator


Most refrigerators have only one evaporator that handles both compartments. Only the very expensive ones have two evaporators that cool and independently control the temps separately.
Most simply circulate a small percentage of the cold air with a fan in the freezer section (where the thermostat that controls the compressor is getting its signal from) blowing over to the refrigerator section with the hope that that keeps things cool enough in the refrigerator section. If your LG is one of the common ones, it could be something a simple as a large object blocking the air flow between the two sections or a problem with the circulating fan. Also the dial that supposedly controls the temperature in the refrigerator compartment is sometimes connected to a linkage that determines how far a flapper door is help open or closed. Look for a problem in that linkage or damper door.

Make sure the condenser fan is working and the condenser coils are clean. The temperatures are very hot but this could be because there is no air flowing through the condenser coils,

My refrigerator kicks on and off but will not cool below 48 degrees


It may be kicking off on low gas, or the cap tubes or the evaporator valve is malfunctioning. A professional technician will have to check it out.

It is not holding temp. its range is 30 to 49 degrees in one hour


As a refrigerator, it should not go below about 34 degrees. If it is going down to 30, it may be freezing up on the coil. If you get a chance, do this: unplug the refrigerator and let it sit for 4 hours with the door open. If the coil is frozen it will defrost. You can feel the coils inside the box at the top back inside the unit. If you feel ice at any time it is an indication that it is getting too cold. Once the inside coils freeze over, the air can't flow through the coils and the unit will get warmer and warmer. When it is defrosted, set the thermostat just above the off setting. Let it run until the compressor shuts off. See what the temperature reads on a thermometer inside the cooler. If it is not cool enough move the thermostat one number colder and let it run an hour. Take your time, let it equalize before you change the thermostat. Also if the cooler is empty it is hard to set the thermostat because when you open the door all the cold air escapes and the temp will change rapidly. If it is full of cold food, opening the door won't change the temperature very quickly. Also check the radiator coils at the bottom of the cooler behind the grill. If it is clogged with dust or grease, the compressor may overheat and shut off prematurely.

Do the kenmore refridgerators have a daily defrost cycle? If so, how long does it last and what is the temperature fluctuation? The freezer is empty right now, and the temperature fluctuation seem to go...


All refrigeration products have a defrost set point. Most residential units defrost about every six to eighteen hours. This process should take about 30 minutes to 1 hour. The temp goes up so high inside because there is a heating element in the coils to thaw any residual ice. The temp should not exceed about 45 degrees though. If it does the the compressor is signaled to come back on and start cooling again. This is perfectly alright. The time at higher temp is not enough to spoil the food. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough


If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.

Freezer quits working


Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item #: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen. After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer stays around 0 degrees.
