Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I worked on an old delfield freezer hat had r12 in it and the condensor fan and compressor would turn on when I plugged it in but the evaporator fan motor would not come on. I ran 120 vac to it and it ran, but the unit did not have a sqamatic and I really didn't know the real sequence of opperation to figure out why the fan would not come on for the evaporator. If you could find some thing on the model:6125-s or might be 5 with serial# 147697-T let me in

Some older models ran power throughthe door/ light switches, for the evaporator fan, or perhaps even ewired through the defrost thermostat( reason for that is if evap is warm no need to run a fan and circulate hot air through the cabinet did you try letting run for a while mighttake 20-30 min to get cold enough to trip the defrost thermo.I usuallly hit it with a shot of the freon just ot freeze it shut real quick

Can a delfield model 407 using r12 freon be modified with a new compressor to use current refrigerants


yes it can. if the model is a techumseh find the local dealer.
give them the compressor model # and get the new 134a model
equivelant. no oil change . replace the filter drier when you replace it .the refrigerant charge will be about 90% of the original r-12 charge

Freezer not working, things to check


The unit needs two fans running and good airflow, one fan outside cools the condensor coil and the other inside the unit blowing across the evaporator coil, warming it. The compressor must start up. The defrost timer stops everything and switches on a heating element to defrost the evaporator for several minutes. Please verify these conditions. The condensor coil may get clogged with dirt and lint, the evaporator may get clogged with ice build up, or the fan may quit working due to bad bearings, need for lubrication, or burn out. The defrost timer has an internal motor and contacts which may quit working, some have a way to manualy turn it to switch its mode in case it quits working.

Compressor runs bypassed thermostat with wire that turns on and off compressor,but freezer cabinet is not cold 65 degrees evaporator fan does not turn on,condensor fan on,sttill no cold


If you have just turned it on it takes awhile for the fans to come on. The evaporator coil has to get cold about (10 to 20 degrees) and make a klixion fan switch to turn the fans ON.... Is the evaporator coils getting a frost pattern on them??? If not then the system may be low of Freon.. If the coil is completely froze up and you are getting frost back to the compressor..... then you have a bad fan switch or a door switch.... If you have a wiring diagram you can trace out the wiring.... It is usually down by the compressor or control panel... hope this helps.

The freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Every three minutes I hear something turn on and it runs for about xx seconds. The model number is ASD2626HES. The refrigerator side seems fine.

Fans inside freezer will not turn - no cooling - compressor fan underneath is turning


The fans are controlled with a clixon that has a cut in at 5 degrees, and cut out at 20 degrees. If the unit is running and the fans are not comng on then I would have to say you are out of freon. But your condensor fan could be running and the compressor NOT be running which could be a problem with your compressor. Find out if your compressor is running by taking an amp draw. If compressor IS running then you are low on freon. If the compressor is running and your evaporator coil is cold and your fans AREN'T coming on then your clixon is bad.

Food thawing in freezer


You may have a small leak in the evaporator. You could try to get a replacement freon with stop leak from the automotive store and give it a shot. If it is a R12 unit then it is too old to repair. But it is worth the gamble to shoot it with freeze 12 or an equivilent before you condemn it.

Kenmore Refrgierator is not cooling enough


Is the frost on the entire surface of the evaporator or just a portion. If it is only frosting on a portion there is a possibility your system has developed a leak and has lost some of the charge. Or your compressor has lost its ability to pump the gas. A bad condenser fan motor overtaxes the compressor and can cause premature failure. If it is a bad compressor it may be time to replace the refrigerator. Replacing the compressor is an expensive job and the warranty is only one year on a replaced compressor.
