You need to perform a leak search to determine where the leak is.

If the leak is external to the cabinet, then you can repair the leak. If the leak is found to be within the walls of the unit, the leak cannot be repaired and its nothing more than scrap metal at that point.

There are many reasons why is not working. 1.if the compressor is not running, Relay or overload burn, they are attached to the side of the compressor 2, thermostat may not be working. 3. if all of the part i mentioned are working fine your compressor may need to be replace.4 if the compressor runs but still don't get cool, there is a internal gas leak inside the freezer. The only way to find out theses issues, is by having the necessary tools and experience.

Compressor working fridge is not


Not a 5 min. explanation, but in short, if the compressor and fan are both running, question is, Is the freezer cold but not the fridge? If so, defrost properly for approx. 12 hours to remove all ice then restart. If not, one of 2 options remain, there is either a Blockage in the system, or there is a leak in the system. Either way, you need to call a service technician. Truthfully, if diagnosed with a leak, i suggest you replace the fridge as these leaks do not get repaired properly especially if it is internal and good money will get wasted. Hope i helped.

Iced up copper pipe... both fans in freezer are not running anymore.. The freezer is a 3 door commercial unit. I had someone here today to fix leak and add Freon. It was working great but when i came to...


Call back who ever fixed the leak, you still have one.
After fixing the leak make sure the drier is changed, system evacuated to at least 500 microns, then do a standing test. Meaning let the unit stand with the micron gauge connected. The unit should hold a vacuum. A slow rise indicates moisture, whereas a rapid rise indicates a leak.

I have a freezer that ices up about 12inches from the bottom model#HCMO5OEC and will not freeze the food


Hi,
your freezer has a freon leak and the leak would need to be found, fixed and recharged for it to work again...
this would cost more then a new freezer...

Avanti chest freezer cf199 will not freeze. A


Sounds like your freezer has lost its charge of refrigerant. That motor sound is the compressor. And the internal thermal overload is tripping it out every minute because refrigerant also cools the compressor motor. Have a licensed repairman find the leak, seal it,and recharge it with R134a refrigerant.

Our Traulsen Freezer will not hold the cooling agent.


Have someone out to do a nitrogen leak check on it. Sounds like a leak needs to be found and fixed. Hard to find leaks can be spotted by adding UV dye to the system.

Proline freezer door leaking


If this is not a frost free model It sounds like you have a freon leak. This is almost never worth fixing. Any fix would be temporary. You can never really trust it again.

If it is a frost free model it could be just stuck in defrost. Most commonly the defrost timer.
