Cooling problems We just moved and had the ref. in storage for a month, then moved. We always kept it upright in the truck and storage. The compressor runs as normal but it wont cool very well, the freezer gets cold enough to freeze ice but its soft but the kids freezer pops wont freeze in the door, the refrigerator dont cool very much at all, but does seem to get cooler at times. Everything was working fine before the move and storage of the unit. It seems to be a sealed system from what I can tell and I did clean out the coils that are on the bottom of the refrigerator to see if that was the problem but nothing has changed. We would appreciate any help or suggestions.

    If the evaporator fan is the one at the bottom with the back cover removed then yes it is working. Im not sure where really to check for ice on the evaporator? if that is the coils on the bottom of the fridge then no they are not iced up, but even though I can figure out mechanical problems, plumbing, electrical and carpentry...refrigerators are not my thing. If I know where to check and what to do I can fix the problem so if you could let me know where the items you refer to are then Ill check it out in more detail.
    I appreciate it so very much!
    Thank you,
    Tom

Did you make sure the evaporator fan is working? I would check that and also make sure the evaporator is not all iced up. If it is iced you have a defrost problem and not with the sealed system. so check that out and get back if you can. Thanks

Neptune washer ballasting water

No, drain it. Just remove the drain hose from the clip at the rear and low the hose into a pail or cooking tray. Gravity will do the rest. Make sure it is always kept upright unless you have the transport brackets.

How-to check a Lamp Ballast board on a Sony KDF-55e2000 TV for proper operation

You cant test them unfortunately. The only reliable way is to swap it out with a known good ballast. They can and do go bad sitting as the capacitors start to dry out from not using them. Sitting is bad for electronics. Buy a ballast from ebay(used known good) and try it. Thats your best bet honestly.
