Ananti Refrigerator repair.

I am Serving in the war in Afghnistan. I have a cooling problem with my Ananti refrigerator. Would it be cheaper to repair it myself or buy a new frig. considering that I would have to have the part sent here. Is it pratical to fix it myself? I plug it in and it "hums" but will not get cold at all. Coolant problem? fixable?

Feel the compressor after it has been on for a while. if hot or warm, then you have a compressor fault. not worth while to repair

You should unplug refrigerator before working with electrical components. If removing or working with the capacitor you should know it hold a high amp charge and can hurt you if you cross the terminals with your hands. Most places which sell capacitor can test them. The video on the link is pretty good also

Unit runs for a period of time, then it causes the circuit breaker to blow

The compressor has gone bad... it probably will not be worth replacing it...a new unit will be cheaper...

Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then checkout the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

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

Refrigerator Compressor Start Capacitor and Start Relay


Not cooling; relay clicks; compressor runs for 5 sec then stops.

Is the compressor actually starting or is it humming? If it is humming, then it is probably your capacitor, which would end up costing about $20 for the part, much cheaper than a new refrigerator. I feel that this is most likely your problem. If the compressor has a starting relay, this could also not being operating correctly. If you carefully disconnect the capacitor, you can check the mfd rating with a multimeter. You can also check the starting relay (if applicable) with the multimeter set to measure continuity. Hope this helps. BTW... A new starting relay, called a CCR, or Current Coil Relay, will probably run you about the same, $20.

Power on but not cooling

mostly either compressor or relay is bad. replace relay and see if it works, since that is cheaper part..

Refrigerator not cooling.

if it's not an outrageously expensive fridge.. you might be better off investing in a new unit.. (be cheaper then replacing cooling system) appliance repairs are costly these days..

5 year old refrigerator stopped cooling

Sounds like your refridgerant compressor or the motor driving it has bit the dust.  I am assuming it does not kick on or you can't hear it running.  Call a local appliance repair to get a quote, but 9 times out of 10, it is cheaper to replace the fridge.  A motor and compressor can cost upwards of 300-600 bucks.  That is just from my knowledge and your model may be higher or lower.  Best to get an appliance guy to take a look.

Freezer not freezing and refrigerator not cooling

sounds like a bad compressor, you cna check with the manufacture for possible warr( depending on date of purchase you may be covered, under 5year war)

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.

Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.
