Hi,

It is quite possible that you ruined the fridge...
To fix that the remaining freon will need to be recovered, the coil fixed and then the system recharged...depending on the make and model of your fridge, it will cost almost as much to do all of that as a new unit is worth...

You will need to call an experienced repair person to do this work.. it is not a DIY job or even an job for a beginner...this is serious!!

Fridge freezer exposed to fire smoke and not cooling down


Sounds like you may possibly have caused some damage when you cleaned it up - can you talk us through exactly what you did to it and how badly it needed "cleaning" - was it caked in soot etc. How hot do you think it got during the fire? if it got much above 60 celcius for any length of time what can happen is that the refrigerant gas boils enough that it will overwhelm all the seals. only real way to check is get a fridge repair guy to test it for leaks and refrigerant content, be careful not to run it too much in case this is the problem - can be fixed but running it won't do it any favours. Hope this helps, please post back with a bit more detail and hopefully we will have more of an idea what the problem could be :)

The refrigerator and freezer are not cooling on my Jenn-Air JCD2389GES. I have checked the cooling coils and they are dry no frost. I cleaned out the coils in the back. The fan in the lower back runs fine...


Check compressor is running with exact current (Amps). Keep your hand on discharge line on condenser coil to feel warm. If no warm means no gas in the system. If warm and no whistling sound in freezer means system under chocked.
If no gas, find leak an arrest it. Vacuum and do gas charging. If chocked, release all gas, flush out the system, replace filter drier, vacuum and recharge gas. Helpful?

Kenmore 253.78989801. Refrigerator stop cooling, then freezer gradually lost temperature. Melted ice buildup on coils by removing panel in freezer. Restored power. Fan in freezer works, I can hear...


If freezer is not cooling then the chance of frost forming is also out of question. So we need to start of by checking on the prrimary component, the compressor. Make sure the speed of the motor is humming welll or check the motor capacitor. Use a clamp tester to measure the current factor to see the load. If the pumping is low then check for gas pressure in the unit. If not you will need to check why the gas leaked check the leak with compressed air pumped in and monitored.for leak.
Only then recharge gas and seal.
Test the motor before gas filling to confirm the performance.

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok


Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

Fridge wasn't cooling but freezer was working, now both aren't


Hi,Your husband did good job, after cleaning and vacuuming, did freezer (bottom) have excessive ice?, if there's excessive ice in bottom, after cleaning, you have a defrost problem, but if there're no ice in freezer after cleaning, you got freon (gas leak) , there's a condensate loop, that passes through ref. body, from compressor that naturally develop, freon leak after few years, by rusting, normally it can be by- pass. vacuum and refill with freon, if there's no freezing, but compressor running, you'll need a mechanic, you got a freon leak. good luck.

Refrigerator not getting cold enough. Do I have a coolant leak?


First check the refrigerent level and gas leak could result in poor cooling.

Block in the drier or capillary section could result in poor cooling

Thermostate could be defective

Defrost the freezer chamber in case you have excess ice formed in the freezer chamber.

if he added gas then you had a leak and was low on freon it can take 24 hrs to reach temperature and it would be running that whole time to do so

Refigerator not cooling and hot to the touch


It sounds a lot like lost charge caused by a leak in your system. If your unit has been moved or improperly cleaned, some part of the pressurized system may be damaged.
Refrigerant (with very small molecules) may leak off over many years but it shouldn't happen in the single digits.

Freezers cold but refrigerators warm


see if there is a big block of ice on the back plate in your frige, if there is then your thermostat is set to cold or broken. if no ice in the frige then it has a gas leak!
