This is not a solution, but---. I had to set thermostat all the way up to 86 (high as it would go) and remove front panel entirely. It now cycles OK on energy saver but will sometimes get too cold. Seems any blockage of air flowing out into the room will negate cycling on/off. I've totally blocked intake to coils with no effect on cycling. Any time I replace front panel (with louvers) the system doesn't like me. I'm still searching for correct solution.

Whirlpool S20b American style f/f. The fridge is very cold and some foods are freezing.


Suggest lowering the refrigerator set point to a lower number such as 3. There is usually an indication of normal setting on the adjustments. Wait 24 hours and check the refrigerator compartment again. Use a thermometer to record the temperatures. The meat compartment will be normal just below freezing. If no success then read the following.

One reason that this occurs is that the unit is working near continuously to reach the freezer temperature. Another words the unit is not capable or cooling the freezer to the prescribed temperature. The result is the excess cooling eventually reaches the refrigerator section causing the refrigerator to freeze. The unit will if this is the case run nearly continuously. This situation is counter intuitive. Freezer not reaching set point, excessive cooling over cools refrigerator therefore refrigerator freezes.

The cause is either the freezer door/seal is not closing or sealing the freezer compartment or the compressor or defrost cycle is not functioning properly.

Check the freezer door seal using a strip of paper. Check to see if air is flowing from the vents in the freezer. Using a thermometer check the temperature of the freezer. Listen for and record if the compressor is running or not.

The normal freezer temperature is around '0' Fahrenheit. If no or little air is flowing from freezer air vents look for ice on the back wall. If ice is present it is likely the auto defrost cycle is not working. Attempt to defrost by hand which requires several hours with everything removed.

Check that lint and dust has not blocked the coils under the unit and that the lower fan is running. Usually warm air exits from the machine grill in the front. Remove the grill and check for air flow and debris buildup. Vacuum if necessary.

And unfortunately if the compressor runs continuously and no air blockage underneath would indicate that the cooling capacity is reduced requiring a major service or replacement.

Hope this helps?

My magic chef mini fridge jumps from 55 to 49 degrees and it's set at 41. What can the problem be?


The first and simplest cause of unstable temperature readings occurs whenever people open the door, which almost immediately causes a change in your refrigerator/freezer's internal temperature. In this case, the temperature recorded by the electronic monitoring system is often comparable to a conventional thermometer located in the cabinet. What personnel often don't realize is that typical mercury thermometers have response times measured in minutes, meaning that it can take 5-10 minutes for the temperature shown on the thermometer to stabilize at the new value after a rapid temperature change.

A second source of temperature variation arises from the normal cycling of the compressor used to cool the refrigerator/freezer. Again, if the temperature displayed by your thermometer is being compared to the temperature reported by your electronic monitoring system, the response time of the thermometer may be masking the actual temperature fluctuations in the cabinet.

The final cause is due to electrical noise in the temperature monitoring system. This can often be identified from the temperature data in the form of random jumps in temperature from 0.5 to 5 degrees or more happening over a very short time period (such as seconds). The most common cause of electrical noise is the placement of wires from the sensor.

Compressor runs continously even after replacing the thrermistor and cold control. Any ideas?


Freezer not reaching cut off temperature.measure temp with a thermometer. -18 TO -20 should allow thermostat to cut off compressor.

Fridge showing incorrect temperature


The temperature sensor might need to be replaced, however, if the compressor is never shutting off, then the contents of the refrigerator will freeze and the compressor will "freeze up" too.

Buy a refrigerator/freezer thermometer to determine the actual temperature.

Have a scottsmanc1448 ice machine shows codes 1 an an 2 longharvest cleaned all water sensors descaled machine works threw all cycles water flows over both curtain coils ...


ok, what you have not told me was the temp of the ice plate. If you have an inferred thermometer now is a good time to use it. what is the Temp of the plates or ice collection try. Ice will never collect if it is not below zero C. 32F my guess is it must be below 28F. you need some kind to thermometer.

Change the ac compressor


Recover all refrigerant. Remove hoses, unplug wiring, remove belt, unbolt compressor. Replace in reverse order. Change filter dryer, replace "o" rings, belt and be sure compressor has oil in it before installing it. Make all hose connection, put vacuum pump on to evacuate system. Charge with engine running through low side lines(the larger one). Check High and Low pressures. Put a thermometer in the duct inside vehicle, turn fan on highest setting and coldest setting. Should get down to about 40-42 deg.

GMC Acadia AC not working properly


Not sure if I'm too late to answer this one, but you're describing a low refrigerant condition. The hissing noise and constant cycling of the compressor clutch are indicators of that. You should recover the system, record how much refrigerant was recovered, evacuate the system (with a vacuum pump), add A/C dye, and recharge the system to capacity. Common leak areas on these vehicles include the A/C condenser (located in front of the radiator), and the evaporator (located inside the dash, and requires complete removal of the interior dash to replace it). If you can't find a visible leak after running the recharged system with dye for several weeks and it starts to blow warm again, you will need to use an R-134a leak detector to "sniff" areas of the system for a refrigerant leak.

FORD ESCAPE A/C PROBLEM


This must be one of those disposable guage/can things.Are you really going to trust a disposable guage?If the clutch wouldn't engage at all,and after adding some refrigerant,it engages erratically,it's probably still low on charge.Keep adding refrigerant while the system is running,until the compressor cycling becomes more normal.I like to place a box fan up against the grill to blow air over the condensor,to simulate the air flow created by the vehicle driving down the road.This lowers the temperature and pressure of the high side,allowing the refrigerant to flow in faster.You might also want to put a thermometer in the center dash duct to monitor the duct termperature.
