Question about Woods Upright Freezer MU07W

1 Answer

We bought a Woods all fridge and upright freezer pair

We bought a woods all fridge and upright freezer stainless steel pair 1 1/2 years ago, it's still under warranty for full replacement or repair. The fridge quit cooling , repair man said it was a throw away. Appliance store wants to replace it but since Woods is out of business so our set will be mismatched if we have to accept another brand. Model # is R1816RS3 . Can we find parts ( the store isnt making an effort ) should we even bother? If we could have both pieces replaced that would be great but they are not going for that option. Can U Help ??? T

    I believe it is the evaporator , where the gas circulates through the fins ? Lost the cooling completely. I just can't believe in this day and age that you have to throw out an entire virtually new fridge because of some parts.

    But since the fridge is still under full warranty we could have the store order the parts from where ever. It would still seem to be cheaper than the $1300 we paid for the fridge!

    Can you confirm the model number and get me the serial number from the tag inside the unit please:?

  • Philip Apr 25, 2010

    I believe I have located the part you need, the part number for the evaporator is 4390782.

    What part of the country/world do you live in? I see a parts distributor in Chicago that has 14 of them.

    Here is what I am seeing close to you:

    Reliable Parts Canada in Montreal 877-472-4582 has 9 (+ 14 more other locations in Canada)

    Sunberg Appliance Parts in Chicago 800-972-881 has 14

    1st Source-Servall Toledo/Michigan 800-856-7676 has 2

    Let me know if you need more information.

The alarm keep beeping and when I turn it to off (the reser alarm) the freezer will not keep food frozen. Please Help!


Hello,

Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Depending on the age of the fridge, it might still be under warranty. If it's not, then you might be able to access the door switch yourself and pull it out & replace it.
This is common. Unplug it or turn off the circuit breaker for a full 5 minutes. Things will be good

Good day,
That's a no-no. Your compressor carries a 5 year warranty from the factory. However, if anything is altered on it the warranty is voided. You've got an issue with this guy.

Kenmore upright freezer model 29238 keeps tripping switch


If the compressor actually runs for more than a second or two its likely the compressor is bad. Some models had a 5 year warranty and some ten years on the compressor only. The replacement of the compressor is likely beyond your abilities unless you are a service technician.

A typical cost for such a repair can be more than the freezer may have cost you if nothing is under warranty. Good Luck.

Food not totally frozen, icecream melted


if it a frost free freezer then chances are it is a defrost hearter, fan motor or defrost timer
if it is not frost free then it will either be the compressor or a gas leak ( which should be under warranty)
