It worked ok for a day then got warm the coil is frozen the fans are running but no air flow ?

Evaporator temperature is what controls on and off operation and indirectly controls the case temperature. The charge in these system does have to be correct to the ounce. To much charge and the evaporator Pressure will run end giving a higher temperature. To little charge and it will only frost part of the evaporator. These system are critically charged systems.

These type of systems are controlled by the thermostat which should cycle off at a preset temperature and not return to the on position until the cooling coil reaches 37-38 degrees. Setting the control to cold will cause the evaporator to freeze up. Turning the temperature control to the off position will allow the fans to melt the ice from the coil. When reseting the control set it to #1 or 2 setting to begin with.

Also an old unit with an old compressor may not allow the unit to reach design temperature before freezing up the coil.

FREEZER COOLING OK BUT FRIDGE LOW COOLING


Remember that most all refrigerators only have cooling to the freezer... the refrigerator depends on stealing some of that cold to be cool, so here's my top 3 guesses...
Cause 1 The defrost heater is defective, so frost accumulates on the evaporator coils, and the coils will become plugged with frost causing the airflow through the coils to be restricted, and the refrigerator not to cool. Check the evaporator coils to determine if they are frosted over. If the evaporator coils are frosted over, test each component of the defrost system after clearing any restrictions to the cooling fan and defrosting with a hair dryer.
Cause 2
The evaporator fan motor draws cold air over the evaporator coils and circulates it throughout the freezer. If the evaporator fan is not working, the freezer or refrigerator will not cool adequately. To determine if the evaporator fan motor is defective, try turning the fan blade by hand. If the fan blade does not turn freely, bench test it for function and use a multimeter to test the motor windings for continuity. If the windings do not have continuity, (very odd) replace the evaporator fan motor.
Cause 3
Damper Control Assembly The air damper control opens and closes to let the proper amount of cold air into the refrigerator compartment. If the damper does not open properly, it won't let enough cold air into the refrigerator. Check the damper control to determine if it is broken or stuck closed or that an inadvertent bump has shut it off to the refrigerator compartment

Is there any problems with leaving an empty side by side fridge freezer switched off for a couple of months?


No there should be no problem. I have found if you keep doors open slightly and allow the existing moisture to evaporate allows the refrigerator to remain dry and not have that damp wash cloth smell when you return. Also the evaporator fan motor can rust stopping the fans from working if not left open, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Loud noise in fridge like fanwhen it boosts. cuts out when door opened


The loud noise is probably coming from the freezer/evaporator fan motor in the freezer compartment.

Water keeps dripping under the fridge.


In a frost-free refrigerator/freezer the frost that would normally accumulate on the inside wall of the freezer is removed by heaters imbedded in the freezer's walls. Periodically these heaters are turn on to melt the frost which then exits the freezer as liquid water through a drain in bottom. This water accumulated in a pan underneath the refrigerator and is supposed to be removed by evaporation. If the flow of melted frost from the freezer is greater than the evaporation rate in the pan then the pan will overflow and you will get a pool of water on your floor. A bad seal on the freezer door will allow more frost to form inside. Also if you leave the freezer door open a lot you will accumulate more frost. The evaporation rate in the pan can be affected by the ventilation around it. If the vents on the bottom of your refrigerator are clogged with dust it will decrease the evaporate rate in the pan. In addition, many refrigerators have a fan the pulls air around the pan. If this fan has stopped working the evaporation rate in the pan will also decrease.

If the cooler has power, the condesor fan (bottom) and evaporator fan (top) are spinning put your hand on the compressor. Do you feel a vibration? if so, you probably have a refrigerant leak. If not (if its clicking or nothing at all) its a compressor issue.
