Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Uline CO2075 no ice, no cooling

Have (2) of them - both not working. These are combo undercounter refrigerators with ice makers; currently no cold, no ice. Never quite right, mostly would have ice buildup (they were supposed to be frost free). Would defrost manually, then would make ice for a bit, then warm up and melted. Had a technician look at them two days ago, but not happy with his answer - he says one is "blocked"/Frozen and can't be fixed. The other has defrost fan & heater that may be not working right. Hoping there is someone out there that has some experience with these and can better guide me to know whether to get rid of them (they were supposed to be top of the line) or whether fixing is an option.

Thanks.

Robbie

SOURCE: Refrigerator Not Making Ice, Frost in Freezer and Refrigerator Not Cold

It has a defrost problem.  Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer.  Next most common would be the defrost timer.  Third would be the defrost heater.  Let me know if you want to try to test these parts.  If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    SOURCE: uline combo unit. Condensor fan will not run and

    You just answered your question. If no fan is running then the compressor will overheat and the compressor goes off on overload. Do you have the evaporator fan running? If yes then replace the condensor fan. Both fans will run at the same time. If the evap fan is not running then the unit must be in defrost. Since its a hotgas defrost the compressor will run.
    Hope this helps

    SOURCE: GE refrigerator, ice melts in ice bin

    Since your refrig is cooling , I would replace the # 4 AND # 5 thermistors . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

    SOURCE: Frost and Ice Buildup

    If everything is cooling fine and the frost is not on the back wall but just the floor at the bottom then your defrost drain is stopped up. Remove the bottom basket and clean up the ice on the floor of the freezer. Look on the back wall and you will see some more ice up a littler higher at the back. This is where the drain is. Clean all the ice out from this area too using hot water or a hair dryer. Once you find the drain hole make sure you get all this ice out of it as well. You can take a screw driver once you have melted the ice and gently push it through the drain hole. Once the hole is cleared you should be able to pour hot water freely through the hole. (It is best to turn the refrigerator off while you do this)

    ULine CLR2160S00 was making ice then the icemaking started to slow then none at all had refrigerant replaced last year and everything else seems to be working fine,,, just no ice


    Does the ice maker get water? Could the fill line be blocked? I found on my freezer ice had formed at the end of the tube and once I removed the ice it has worked fine since.

    I have an U-line combo 75A and the ice maker(part number 400) has started overfilling. When water enters the ice maker, it runs out the overflow hole. Any suggestions?


    few thing can happen, bad thermostat it caused the ice maker stuck in harvest cycle, short in ice maker defrost heater, bad water valve switch or the overflow hole drilled to low, it should be 1/4 inch below the top, I seen some of them drilled 1/2 inch below and it caused water leak.

    My under counter Uline refrigerator/ice maker suddenly trips GFI


    I here this alot. If you have a compressor on a gfi the compressor after awhile would trip it. The compressor start amps is usually higher than the gfi is rated. So you have 2 choices. Replace the GFI and try to find one with higher amp ratings. Or install a normal outlet for your unit. Your code will usually call for a gfi, If it does then replace with a new gfi.
    To explain the start amps on a compressor depending on your model could be 10 amps. This is for a split second. However the gfi can become week after time. You can also try to plug the unit into a normal outlet to make sure everything is good on the unit. I believe it is the gfi
