Question about U-Line 15R Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frig not cold

U-line 15R only 4 years old. Not working. Light is on but unit wont run. What are the common problems with this model?

Custom fit into bar cabinet, so I'm stuck with this size (maybe brand).

How much should I spend on a repair? Or just buy a new one?

    Exact same problem as Rick 55 described.

    Don't know how to fix it.

    We are thinking going to Costco to get a similar size Frig.

    But not sure if it will fit.

    Unit is not staying cool

  • infosleuth Nov 11, 2008

    I have the same 2015RB-00 model, it's a great beverage fridge (just shelves, no icemaker or freezer) but it stopped working yesterday (after 4 years). The light comes on when the door is open, but the inside is warm. Changing the dial thermostat on the front does not change the temperature condition. It is a simple fix for a common problem on this type of unit (meaning: call the repair guys to come) or does it mean buy a new unit for cheaper than it is to repair the compressor and parts? Thx! -Roger

If nothing i running and the light is on then this means that the thermostat is usually the problem. This is a easy fix and you dont need to buy a new refrigerator. However if you do be careful what you buy, Not allrefrigerators can be built in to a cabinet. Thermostat normally cost between 25 to 60 dollars depending on the model you have.

Refrigerator seems to be running but not getting cold, approximately 13 years old small bar style about 15 wide

When was the last time you cleaned the condenser grill under your unit. If that is coated with lint it will affect the operation of the machine.

Is anything running? IF your fan and compressor are running then you need a service tech to look at the sealed system. If nothing is running then it may be a bad thermostat.

My kenmore frig is not staying cold in frig. or freezer

One of the most common problems with refrigerators and freezers is over time dust and lint can accumulate in the condenser coils try cleaning the coils CAREFULLY! with a vacuum. Unplug the unit before doing any cleaning . most units have a cardboard cover in the back, remove this to get at the coils . also check the fan(if there is one ) to see that it is not stuck.replace cover and plug unit back in.
check to see if fan is running and for air movement under the front door of unit. Keep in mind all models are different and these solutions are generic ones .Hope this helps.

Jenn-air side-by-side: freezer & frig cold on the bottom not top!

It sounds like 1 of 4 things...
1. It could be related to the evaporator becoming Iced over and when this happens it insulates the area iced over and the temp rises...this is caused from the defrost cycle not being activated...(Thermostat, or loose or broken wire)
2. There is a device called the thermistor which senses temp and Ice build up which will cause the unit to go into defrost...this could be bad.
3. The previous fixes may cost a little but not as much as the next which could be a restriction in the evaporator. This is serious and usually requires the replacement of the same...very pricey. Is there only 2 compartment or a pull out drawer for freezer foods..If so you could have an isolated problem in the upper freezer compartment which may be remedied without great cost

If your husband or yourself ..or a handy person can access the back of the freezer by removing the back panel I'm sure you will find either lots of Ice far as cost to repair goes....or no Ice...bad...bad.. as far as cost to repair..the later falls in line with a restriction.
I hope I have helped....please rate me ...The Fang
