I have bought a logik fridge freezer its in garage which is attached to my house but in the fridge I have frozen tomatoes


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number, so I can only advise in general terms.

The basic operation of a combo freezer/fresh food section unit are the same.

Generally, the fresh food section does not have a independent cooling source. It gets its cooling from the freezer section. There is a air damper from the freezer to the fresh food section. This air damper is controlled by a thermostat. I suspect that either the thermostat is bad or the damper. Your air damper is wide open.

The other problem is, your unit is not designed to operated in a garage. If you have a warrantee or a service contract it will be cancelled by the service company. Your electrical components can short out or corrode from the drastic change in temperature. Your control board can fail due to static in the air or condensate.

Samsung model rs263tdpn fresh food stops cooling.

Air channels freezing? they might be blocked with foreign matter, clean them out. This might also be as simple as turning down the dial for how much you wish to cool the unit. Running it constantly at full blast is not a good idea.

Reaons for hussman freezer compressors failuer Model No:NLD 2

Normally compressors fail due to overheating. But just like any machine that may run 24 housr a day 7 days a week, the compressor may just wear out. Overheating is caused primarily by stopped up condenser coils. The condenser coil is the radiator like object that sits close to the compressor and dissapates heat created by the compressor. Also if the fan behind the condenser coil fails because of an obstruction or fan motor burnout the heat will not be dissapated properly. The compressor has protection built in that should shut it off during an overheating situation, but it can't protect it over a period of time where the compressor keeps trying to start and shuts down due to overheating. If you look at the condenser coil in many cases you will find dust and or grease build up so dense that no air flows through the coil. This is simply neglect or not knowing that the coil needs to be cleaned periodically. Also, if you have a refrigerant (freon) leak, your compressor will overheat. The cold returning freon helps to keep the internal components of the compressor cool as well as keeping the oil inside the compressor churning up onto the internal components. If you have a leak, it is not sufficient to just add freon every once in a while. Leaks need to be fixed by finding the leak and welding the leak shut. No refrigeration system should require "gassing up" other than the initial charge of refrigerant. Overheating can also be caused by a lack of air flow through the condenser coils because there is no space around the machine for air to flow into and out of the compressor compartment. If you have recently replace a compressor and it goes bad again, it may be burnout residue from the previous compressor that clogs the lines after a burnout. I hope this answers your question.

6 beeps on km500mah ice machine. Starts to fill unit and when it switches to compressor mode, the system stops and 6 beeps.

Hi, this is one of the largest ice machines that Hoshizaki make, with the remote air cooled condenser on the roof. As far as the code of 6 beeps, and the compressor starts and stops, you should have a error chart on one of the panels that tells you what the 6 beeps means, a dirty condenser up top that is shutting the unit off on high head or what. You need to find this code error chart, and it will direct you to the point of the problem. I have the service hand book buried in mt service van, so that's not much help.Try and check the remote condenser for a dirty coil, as the is is where you condenser fans and coil are located. It may lust need to be serviced If you have access to nickel safe ice machine cleaner and the unit has not been cleaned in awhile, this I find to be about 80% of problems with these machines. You can by a gallon at a appliance parts house or a/c parts house to clean it up. Some you will nee to do by hand, as they get slimmed up really bad and thing quit working. If you are not tied into a water softener , this is really hard on the machine. Try and look at the fans and coil up top and get the nickel safe flip the switch to the cleaning cycle, and start cleaning. This should take care of that problem. Please rate me , and be kind as I know you will and I will be here to help you. Use my user name below.

My Kenmore 9 upright freezer feels warm on the outside, what could be the cause. I have defrosted and cleaned it already and seems to work fine. however i am concerned with the outside temperature. Please...


This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.

The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.

Freezer and fridge not working and warm, can hear appliance running

Hi, are you able to pull it out and get behind it to check something? If so, you should have a lower panel that you can remove. This will give you excess to the compressor, the condenser coil, and the condenser motor. If you had to unplug it, make sure it stays off for 5 or more minutes so the unit pressures will equilize or the compressor will not come on for sometime. When you restore power, make sure the thermostat is turned to its coldest setting and the black pot type unit, the compressor is running. the fan motor is running also. If they are, check the front of the coil for lint build up on it. Clean it well. If any of the motors are not running, that will be your problem.If the fan is on and you can feel the air coming from it, the air should be very warm, If the compressor is on. If both are on and the air is cool, it sounds as though you have lost your freon, a small leak some where. If this is not the case, or you have a motor down, it will need to be replaced. If its the compressor, it wouldn't be worth replacing as you are looking at about $1200.00 to 1800.00. Check all of these things and keep me posted by my user name below. I will be waiting to here back from you. Also. let me know if the fan in the freezer is off.

Refrigerator works but freezer does not freeze.The compressor works and I've cleaned the entire works area of dust.

There is two kind of condenser: one called condenser with forced air flow and condenser with natural air flow!!!
Your freezer have the condenser with natural air flow. . One mistake which people do is that they don't really know how to install the refrigerator or freezers. What distance to the wall which they can respect. This distance is what we call the ventillation distance which allow the natural air or forced air to flow and cool down the compressor and the condenser.
That mean , remove immediately your freezer to 1 foot from the wall. unplug 15 mins and plug again it will work very good.
