Have an Engel portable fridge. When I plug it in it turns on and sounds like it is working properly but I doesn't cool at all. What is this most likely to be?

Try this:
Temperature Adjustment
• After 24 hours, adjust the controls as needed. Adjust temperature gradually: push the button in small increments,
allowing the temperature to stabilize.
• Press the button(Freezer Temp or Fridge Temp) repeatedly until the desired set temper.
• For lower temperature, press the button(Freezer Temp or Fridge Temp) towards coldest.
• For higher temperature, press the button(Freezer Temp or Fridge Temp) towards cold.

If this does not work for you let me know or you can contact Samsung support at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864) Mon - Sun : 9am - 9pm (EST).

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying...that's a good start to diagnosis on your part, good job. Thank you for providing some back round. Unfortunately I have to follow that up with this...Those are all typically a good indicator of s system low on refrigerant...if the compressor is indeed operating. Are you able to confirm it is operating for sure ?

I usually find those unit's leaking right under where the defrost bi-metal is clipped onto the evaporator.


**Unplug the unit from the wall before proceeding to removing any panels...safety first**

If you remove the back evaporator cover inside the freezer to inspect the evaporator for a complete frost pattern (which is what I'd suggest if the compressor is indeed running), then also check the bi-metal (also known as a "dts" or defrost thermostat shown below) and inspect it closely for any sign of oil, that may pin-point the leak.

Let me know as much as you can in regards to my questions and I'll watch for your post to follow up from here. Please include if you can a confirmation it is a Frigidaire model FRT22TSE...Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

ENGEL STILL GETS COLD BUT RUNS VERY HOT AND USES MORE POWER


FRIDGE COILS SEEM VERY HOT:

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

My 39ltr Engel is only freezing on 1 side the other is only cool


This sounds like a water problem. Both sides should be at comparable temps. Is this a model with door instant ice/and/or icemaker?

Hii have an indeset fridge freezer 2 year old freezer ok fridge not cooling


Usual problem, let it defrost properly, I mean 48 hours with doors open in warm room. It is most likely frozen up inside (its frost free! no?) inside is a different matter and they dont tell you that!

12v &240v connections on an ENGEL COOLER


AUTOMATIC AC/DC CHANGEOVER: All Engel Fridge Freezers can be plugged into both AC and DC at the same time. The Engel is smart enough to use the AC while available and then automatically switch to DC when the AC is no longer working. It will also sense the resumption of AC power and automatically switch back to AC making it ideal for high hurricane areas and places where power disruption is common.
