Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have an Addi Arizona Model water dispenser and cooler. It has recently begun to freeze up to the point where you can't get any water out of either the room temp or cold side. I suspect a switch that isn't cycling the compressor, hence runnng continuosly and causing the freeze. Let me know your thoughts and where to possibly get parts to repair.

Hello mmmm,
how old is the unit?
And what did it cost you?

It has a bad thermostat.
Try unplugging it for 5 minutes and see if it resets.
If it runs continuously the compressor will soon burn out and die!
If not do not spend more than half of what it cost to repair it!
This is the rule of thumb.

You said ,The water cooler wont stop chilling the cold water. Normally, it would shut off once the chilled water has reaches a certain temperature, but now it runs continuously. any ideas how to fix??

Thank You for using our site for advice,

SOURCE: Freezer is cool but not freezing or making ice - fridge not cold

If there is frost on the back wall of the freezer, then the compressor is running. Another (maybe) good thing is the fan is running.

The problem could be -

1) Bad defrost heater
2) Failed defrost sensor
3) Failed defrost timer or refrigerator controller board.

There are diagnostic tests to determine the problem, but require skill at using a multimeter and possibly reading a schematic/wiring diagram.

You can temporarily make the refrigerator run again for awhile by unplugging, opening the doors, and defrosting for 6-8 hours (store food in coolers.). Then plug it back in. Note, water may come out of the freezer as a result of defrosted ice.

My addi cooler no longer cools the water the hot side is working fine is this a quick fix and/or is there an 800 # to call

you search for addi and you get other bastards who list under addi, but have no addi. I cant even find the company phone no. i think they are out of business. I have a similar problem and it is the thermostat that is broken. To check this, remove the two wires to the thermostat mounmted on the back condensor and connect them together temporarily and see if the cooler works. if it does, then replace the thermostat

I cannot dispense water from the cold water/fan runs all the time

first of what temperature are you running is the refrigerator and also what is the ambient temp? whats happeneing is that the water resevour is freezing in the back of the refrigerator . So if the temperature is say 34 iit can actually be a lot colder in the regfriigerator than that due to temperature averaging. Thanks fpor using Fixya and Merry Christmas
