Question about EuroCave Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Eurocave Comfort V101 and it has stopped cooling. The compressor is warm but not extremely hot. The return copper is warm, but the covered copper is not cold. If I unplug and let sit for 10 minutes and plug it in, it starts to cool, but then stops.

SOURCE: Normal that copper pipe shows frosting?

No not normal, this is a sign that the unit has been overcharged with refrigerant. If it is just frost or condensate on the copper pipe that is not a big problem. But if the frost extends onto the compressor dome, then I would be worried. Sometimes fridges are charged in an area with a lower ambient temperature and then moved and sold in another area, hence the slight overcharge. No problem. Hope this answers your question. And yes when the unit cycles the frost will melt and of course drip onto your floor.

SOURCE: stopped cooling

Best to unplug the refrigerator now and let compressor cool. The internal overload will be damaged if power remains on and trying to start. We need to test the compressor and start components before you buy anything, Let me know Sea Breeze

Correct, condenser coils remove heat from the freezer compartment, thusly they will be hot. Sounds like the compressor is failing and that is probably giving off a squealing sound and stops running until it stops. Then your compressor will overheat and stop running until the thermal protector cools down and allows it to run again. Try replacing the compressor cooling fan.

I have an Amana heater/airconditioner (Prestige I think) that is not cooling. The outside compressor fan was not spinning, so i I changed the capacitor on the unit. It now spins, yet vent air not cold


If that fan stopped your compressor overheated, shut off on thermal overload. Carefully cool compressor with water hose and restart. If the big copper is cold ,small copper warm, compressor is running. Check capacitor on compressor

In garage/works perfectly/slow leak coming from an insulated hose that goes directly into the bottom of the freezer itself.


The hose coming from the bottom of the freezer is draining the melted water produced during the automatic defrost cycle. Usually the water is collected in a pan somewhere around the hot compressor motor so the heat can evaporate the water.

The hot copper tube by the compressor is the high pressure tube going to the condenser. The other tube going to the compressor is the return line from the evaporator and, after normal operation, is cold to the touch. It is this cold refrigerant returning to the compressor that cools the motor.

Kenmore Coldspot side by side fridge/freezer no longer cold.


The black thing is the compressor. It should run warm but not hot. This usually indicates it's time to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Try using a long soft brush and your vacuum cleaner.
