If the freezer is not making Ice than we need to suspect the compressor system. You will need help to find if the gas pressure is good enough and the compressor pumping is also normal. If at all these are not looking good you will have to service the compressor and refill the gas . Make sure that after a sut down the freezer is still not cooling as this can mean that the compressor itself is the culprit. Get and estimate and compare with our findings to see if the serive is worth. ask for waranty on work if the compressor needs servicing. hope you try this out. Good day

its either iced up {the wee radiator in it } of the fan has failed that blasts cold air leave it all open for three days and clean it then try again
dont forget to clean the pipes to any evaporator etc.. thats fitted
it may not be detecting cycles so power the whole lot off and reset it can be the only way after a good deep defrost and total clean ,,,

Food cart kitchen prep cooler icing up and not keeping food cold

To produce cold air, the evaporator needs to be free of ice so that air can flow past the cold fins. Often the thought is to turn the dial and make it colder, but this actually makes it worse as the fins ice up quicker. Turn the unit off until fully defrosted. Turn the temperature knob half way and switch the unit back on. Alter the dial so you achieve a temperature of 4'C. Also putting warm food in the unit will cause condensation on the fins. Also, hot humid weather can do the same.

On my last service in February 2010, antifreeze level was recorded as minus 39 degrees. Do I need to get it replaced now?

Replace your antifreeze according to the manufacturer recommendation ...

rule of thumb ... every five years.

rule of thumb ... 50% water and 50% antifreeze.

Did your service center recommend you change your antifreeze? If not, leave it alone.

You dont live in an area of extreme cold do you ... like Ice Land or Northern Canada ... (((for security reasons, please dont tell me where you live))).

I install a new weter filter, but still no ice. I have cold water

Hi: Try setting your freezer a bit colder. Ice makers need zero degrees F to operate. Ice cream should be rock solid. Since summer is here refrigerators work harder. Ice makers will stop working if not at zero. This happens to me. Before you call a tech. Do as I said and set your freezer colder. Don't check it every hour to see if it makes ice as you dump the cold out of it. It's human nature, but dont open it. Give it 24 hrs at one setting lower and see what happens. I hope this helps, Jeff

I have a Samsung RM255LASH Side by Side Refrigerator. The ice maker is not making ice correctly. The ice that comes out is half water, like its already melting. Later the same day I noticed water on...

move the fridge out to see if there is water underneath it sounds like a leak in a line some where you might want to have a service tech check it out.

GE stainless Side by Side doesnt cool enough

I had that situation several times until I notice bad wire connections on the defrost element. It may be in the defrost time circuit also. I would watch this closely and be prepared to have a competent service technician be there to service the your fridge when if needed to prevent food loss in the event the problem gets worse, Thanks Sea Breeze
