    Similar to above, top zone does not cool while bottom zone still does.

  • zbonefas Dec 29, 2008

    I have the same problem. The top gets cold, but the bottom doesn't. I have the unit torn apart, but there is no obvious defect.

    I have the exact same problem! How can I fix it???

  • mikelsmith Feb 05, 2009

    I had the same problem... top was cool but the bottom was not. I unplugged the unit for awhile and now when I plug it in I have no power. When I unplug there is a faint clicking sound for a second or two. When it is plugged in there is nothing, no lights, no fans, nothing. Anyone ever had any luck replacing parts??

    Top doesn't cook bottom does.

If either the top or bottom compartment is not cooling, then the thermal couple (cooling module) behing the fan and heat sink is bad. It can be replaced with part number RF 4545-14 but they cost $70 each. One on the top and another on the bottom. You would need to solder a few wires. I think, this is not worth the cost, since the fridge cost about $150. Also if you don't get power than the circuit board in the back has burned-out. The replacement for this part is RF-5210-37 cost about $38. I replaced the the circuit board after the fridge wouldn't go on. Now the top compartment won't cool and I need a thermal couple. Total cost would have been $130 and I think it's not worth it. So since I fixed the power issue, I will use this fridge just for my reds in the bottom compartment for as long as it will last. I will remove the broken thermal couple, maybe I can put together my own.

    Inside the RF 4545-14 is a TEC1-12706 thermal electric device that can be purchased a lot cheaper than $70. ( Found on EBay for about $3) It doesnt take much to replace it. Just add thermal grease.

I do not have a tool to open fan so i can clean the dust out


Hi, a can of compressed air is what you need, can pick them up at most hardware shops, can be purchased online also-http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-Compressed-Air-Duster-Spray-Can-200ml-Cleans-Protects-Laptops-Keyboards-/370750150980?pt=UK_Computing_Sound_Vision_Cleaning_Equipment_Kits&hash=item56526e5944
A few blasts should loosen any debris, then simply run the fan to remove any remaining dust.

Aficionado hvt18dfbb is running but NO TEMP CHANGE


There is no compressor on these units. These units use a Peltier cold/hot module where the cold side faces the heat sink and the fan exhausts the heat side. Another fan sends the cool side into the frig. I have the same unit, I am experiencing the same issue. I was looking to change out the Peltier modules (about $7 each) and try that. I did find a replacement Control Board is about $45 and if the Peltier change doesn't work this may be my next step.

Green power light doesn't turn on but the yellow light goes on


In your added problem along with more information now, you have witnessed what I have previously stated;

http://www.fixya.com/support/t11034057-compaq_presario_sr5110nx_will_not_start

Bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.
Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) IF, all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what Processor it is.

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short )

Depending on what Core it is based on, (ClawHammer, Newcastle, Winchester, Venice, Manchester, etc), it can use up to 67 Watts, or 89 Watts.

No Processor operating, No computer.
Replace the Power Supply.

{ Also clean out the inside of the computer with a can of compressed air for computers, on a regular basis as needed. It may be every two weeks, if the situation calls for it.
Remember to follow Anti-Static Precautions, BEFORE reaching inside the computer.

N-E-V-E-R use a vacuum cleaner to clean a computer.
A vacuum cleaner produces Static electricity.

{Hold the plastic wand device sideways, over your hair with the vacuum turned on. Your hair will stand up from the Static.
