Question about Avanti 310SST Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator Problem I recently bought an Avanti 310SST refrigerator and I'm having a problem with it. The compressor will only come on when I have it set to 6, when I turn the temp setting down the compressor turns off. It works fine if I leave it set to 6, but then it freezes things in the refrigerator compartment. Am I doing something wrong, or is there something wrong with my refrigerator? Thanks.

    When I turn the temp control down to 4 everything slowly warms up in the freezer area, I tested this by putting the ice cube tray in and checking to see if it would freeze (and it wouldn't).
    In the refrigerator area things do seem to stay cool.

    So maybe its just a problem with the freezer temp.

Could be the temp control is not registering temps correctly. If you leave is below 6 does everything warm up? The compressor should only run when it needs to, not all the time. In other words, if you put it on 4 will the food stay cool (about 38F)? A typical unit only runs a few minutes a day if the doors are not opened up all the time.

I have a compact avanti regrigerator. It doesnt get cold anymore. What do you think might be the problem? I bought it since 2007.

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

Fridge temp high

freon and a compressor is about as easy as it gets....Loss of freon will cause erratic cooling...also if you can feel it touch the compressor after it shuts off if if feels like its really hot ....bad compressor that kicks an internal breaker....bad news then time for new one also only a airconditioner man can put freon in no 12 . but freon will stay for 50 to 80 years for i tested some old fridges and still cool fine.
