SOURCE: Igloo chest freezer 7.2 cubic ft seems running all the time?

It may be on "superfreeze", if there is a yellow light, or it may be set for too low a temperature (try setting the thermostat down to 1 or 2). Check the condenser is clean, and fan working if it has a fan, Check lid is closing properly and the ambient temperature isn't too high.. Lastly, if all else working correctly, suspect short of refrigerant.

Does this fridge have a drip pan


All fridges have a drip pan. Pull your fridge away from the wall, pull the lower cover off, and you will be able to locate it with a flashlight

Igloo mini fridge not getting cold


The compressor may be frozen. Turn off the fridge for 6-8 hours, then turn it back on. Don't turn the temp to the coldest setting. If it will still not get cold, the compressor is probably bad.

Igloo MIS1530 not cold


If it is out of warranty..... Take it to a football field, and see if you can make three points through the goal posts.... Sorry, wish I had a better solution. They just are too inexpensive to warranty $80/hour work plus parts on them.

20.0 cu.ft upright frigidaire. I unpluged it because we were moving and it set for a while before we pluged it back up about six to ten months now it nolonger gets cold. what problem do i have?


Hi Kenneth.

I understood that the fridge is starting but does not cool.

Check fridge temperature settings.

Check if the motor is starting. If the compressor is not running of if it clicks and does not start is the relay/capacitor connected to the motor.

Check if coils have been damaged or if the motor runs most of the time. If there have been a leak or if the refrigerant pressure is low the fridge will not cool.

If thermostat or electronic control is defective the fridge will not cool.

I can be a bit more specific if you give me the complete model number.

My freezer is not cold. The temperature dial reads 1-5 then an igloo and a snowflake. Do I put it on the snowflake to get it cold or the igloo?


Hello,

Insufficient cooling is a fridge repair job that you can do without the help of a professional. Often the fridge has a frost-free failure, or the compressor is faulty but there are many other reasons for a fridge not cooling properly.
Step 1 - Find the Problem

Your first job is to locate the source of the problem. Consider each of the following:

* Gaskets - Make sure the gaskets/seals are not torn and are sealing properly.
* Evaporator fan - Make sure it is working. If it is now working you may have a problem with the fan motor. Check for power to the motor and also examine the fan switches around the door (not all fridges have these switches).
* Air damper - Sometimes the air damper will not open up to allow the cold air from the freezer part to blow into the fridge section.
* Condenser coils - Check to see that the condenser coils don't have a dust build-up and that the condenser motor is working.
* Compressor - Make sure your compressor is working with on and off clicking noises.

Step 2 - Frost-Free Failure

This is the most common cooling problem in fridges. Expose the evaporator coils by accessing the panel in the freezer section. The coils in the freezer section can sometimes get clogged up with frost. This can stop the evaporator fan motor from blowing cold air around, or cause the fan to hit it and stop, or become noisy. The defrost timer can be a bit tricky to find but it is usually located behind the back bottom corners of the fridge, although they can sometimes be found in the ceiling of the fresh food section, or behind the cold control cover.
Step 3 - Find the Timer

When you find the timer, turn the wheel-like screw slowly with a screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. The refrigerator is now defrosting. If you find that the fridge starts now, you will need to replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer.
Step 4 - Volt Test

If the heaters do not come on, use a volt meter to ohm test the defrost heater or volt test for 120 volts to the heater. You can bypass the defrost thermostat if you haven't got power to the defrost heater to check if the defrost heater will come on. To bypass the thermostat, join the two wires together. Replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer if the heater comes on now.

If there is a ticking or squealing noise in the defrost timer, or it seems hot to touch, replace it.

Many fridges have and inline fuse on both sides of the defrost heater. You will need to replace the whole heater if one of those fuses blows. Check these fuses with a volt meter if the defrost heater doesn't work.

A quick check if you have a cooling problem is to inspect the evaporator coils. If there is a build up of white snow on the coils, this indicates a frost free problem; if there is balled ice on part of the coils with the rest bare, this indicates a system problem, like a problem with the pumping compressor.
Take care in solving the problem....

The fridge part of my fridge freezer is freezing the food and the back wall is covered in ice


1. There can be a air leak from the gasket (door rubber).
2. Thermostat is adjusted to high cool position.

Check for these. If you still have the problem consult a technician please.

Whirlpool side by side fridge not cooling


Yes, only part that gets could is in the Freezer. If block by ice (usually) this will not allow the cold air to go into the ref., if so, defrost problem. Check amount of ice on coils in back of Freezer. Should only be a thin frosting.
