Nor-Lake KODB614CL - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Unfortunately, this model has had quite a few problems, because it is such a complicated refrigerator. Many times a shorted component that is connected to the Iceland main control board will affect completely unrelated items making it easy to chase your tail for hours. I would suspect the freezer thermostor - only because we have had to replace it many times in the past.
Suggest you go to the www.searspartsdirect.com and copy the electrical diagram and then verify electrical reading on the main PCB, to try to isolate the problem.

There are a few companys that make temp chart recorders that are battery controled and you could get one of these and just put it inside the refrigerator, problem solved. Check at United Refrigeration, and Johnstone Supply they both have manufacturers that will allow you to keep charts. The 2 things to keep in mind 1 How often are you going to change charts, 2 what temperature range are you looking for.

Oh yes and Im sure there is a company that makes a remote sensed temp recorder that can tie into a computer and print out charts as needed. This is a little more specialized but I know the technology is asvailable. Probably Johnson or Penn Controls would know about this.

If this helps you in any way please rate me as high as you can. If you need to contact me and I can do the searching for you post back.

You will have to defrost the freezer and sponge the water out. Not a fun job by any means.

There is no drain because the manufacturer did not want to have water leaking onto the floor.

There is water on the wires somewhere. Use a fan to blow air over the loom and control board, that might restore it.

If your refrigerator has an in-door ice dispenser, the solenoid valve is defective and will have to be replaced.

send the model number?if the freezer is cold but in fridge the top is warm and the bottom is cold it sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor,all it does is cold starts in the freezer at the evaporator coil,and the evap fan blows the cold air into the fridge section,warm air rises so if the fan isn't working the cold air will stay down low and the warm air will stay up on top,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing in the freezer i would have to say the evap fan motor is bad,if the fan is working one of the doors could have been left open and the air ducts froze up or you could have a damper in your model,it's just a door that opens and closes to let the air blow in but send the model number so whoever helps you can look up your fridge,usually the model number for a sxs is in the fridge section open the fridge door look up on the right hand wall up near the ceiling or in the middle of ceiling and there should be a tag with model and serial numbers just send the model number,

Over time, there is the possibility that minerals from the water will build-up in your system.

This is a common cause for leaking water from the taps.

To resolve this issue, you will need:
  • 1/4 cup of bleach
  • 1 or 2 empty water jug (same ones you use for the dispenser)
  • 1 bucket (preferably 6-8 liter capacity)
When you're ready to begin, turn the unit off.

Then, unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet and remove the water bottle.

Dispense water from both the hot and cold taps into the bucket in order to remove the remaining water from the reservoirs in the unit. Be careful with the hot water. Then empty the bucket.
.
Next, take the empty water jug and pour the bleach in and then add tap water into the empty bottle about 1/8 full. You want it just a little more than what it will take to fill the reservoir in the unit.

Now you will place that jug onto the dispenser.

Plug the the power cord back into the outlet and turn the unit on.

Allow the solution of bleach and water to fill the reservoirs. Once this solution has filled the reservoirs, wait about 15 minutes.

Then dispense the water from both the hot and cold taps into the bucket to remove all the water from the system. Again be careful with the hot water.

Next, turn the unit off again and unplug the cord and remove the jug.

Now you'll need to rinse the current bleach solution jug, or of you have another spare jug, use that instead.

Refill the jug again with hot tap water about 1/4 full as you want double the amount of water this time compared to the bleach solution. Then place the jug back onto the unit.

While keeping the machine off and unplugged, let the hot water fill the reservoir again and let it sit for about 10 minutes and then dispense all the hot water from both the hot and cold taps into your bucket. Then empty the bucket.

Now remove you can remove the jug and pull the unit away from the wall. You'll then need to place the bucket below the drain spout which should be on the back on the unit.

Remove the cap and plug from the drain spout and let the water drain out of the system. Once the water has drained, reinstall the plug and cap.

Now you can reuse the jug that you originally removed if it was still full, or you can use a brand new jug. Plug the unit back in and power it back on.

This method should have removed all the mineral deposits that was preventing the rubber inside the spout to form a proper seal.

You just have to find where the leak is and then dry it and add silicone. At this time of year, many refrigeration appliances sweat from the high humidity.

Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

Heres what I've been doing?,,,,,:two_hearts:,,,,,? www.gocash9.com

First thing is to vacuum all the fluff off the condenser coils. always a problem with air flow and high ambient temperatures in the summer. I did mine last week.

Soft ice cream is the best :>) Check the temperature inside the cabinet with a thermometer.

And finally, it that is minus 5 Fahrenheit, it may be too cool. If it is minus 5 on a dial where Zero is the median and there is a plus five as well, the PLUS side makes it colder.
