Hi I have the Avanti

Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section forfrost. Check the freezer (evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check thecondenser coils (under the unit) for blockage from dust. Check the condenserfan (under the unit) to see if it is running.

If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system andthe freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. Ifthat is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, andthe defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the maincontrol board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling thefreezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.

You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigeratorand letting it sit for at least 24 hours with both doors wide open to allow thefrost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start thewarming up again. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

I have a compact avanti

There are three possible reasons for this;
\the thermostat needs replacing
\The refrigerant has leaked out
\ the compressor has failed
Either way you will need a technician to look at this as it involves an electrical diagnosis

For the temperature, to make it colder to we turn

Normally the lower number is more cooling and hence the setting is ideal to be kept at mid point.
In twin door adjustment witth single control lower setting more cooling to freezer and as it goes up the temp of the fridge increases.
So you might need to recheck with this model

Try resetting and defrosting the Avanti. To do this turn temperature on OFF, disconnect power cord and remove all food from inside.

Reset and defrost can fix a jammed temperature control.

If that does not work, then the thermostat may need to be replaced.

Here the manual with parts breakdown and service numbers.

To book service or to order parts call 800 220 5570. Before calling service, do the defrost suggested above. This is usually enough to fix the problem.

It just do not get cold, sounds like it is

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

My avanit 308YWT compact refrig isn't cooling on

it seems there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dyer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns.
hope this will solve the prob
if u ve further queary plzz do inform us.
all the best

The refrigerator part is not working on our Avanti 3.1, but the freezer part is working. What could be wrong?

Usually the vent at the rear of the freezer is blocked with ice. Often caused by a faulty heater or defrost timer. Also check the circulating fan for the fridge. ..
