Avanti Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I have an Avanti BCA280 that won't cool.
The most likely reason for commercial coolers and fridges not cooling is a low gas state. Did you get your gauges out and check the high and low side pressures before you started swapping parts out?

Avanti compact Refrigerator NOT COOLING
I had this same problem. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that the fan was being bogged down by ice. It wouldn't spin because the ice was so heavy. I turned the power off completely and let the ice melt. Once the ice was removed from the fan, the fridge began working again!

check the switch at back if it is working, check the motor compresor touch the top of the motor comp, if working, the possible problem is the freon, touch the condenser at the back of the unit if hot the freon is working, if no hot, load a freon, ok

I have an Avanti 2101W-1 the compressor is not starting it just gets hot. How can I test the compressor to see if it is good?
If it gets hot and will not start, the first think to check is the capacitor. The capacitor creates a favorable phase shift on the incoming power and it pushes the motor to spin it at the start winding. Without the capacitor, you don't get that push you need and it does what we call in the field "single phasing". While the term single phasing is usually only used in 3 phase power, you can technically single phase a compressor with single phase power if the capacitor fails because you are losing your favorable phase shift causing in to not spin and overheat. I hope I didn't lose you on my explanation, but I want to try to explain it in a way that is understandable.
You'll have a rating on the capacitor that has a number followed by MFD of uf. This is your microfarid number. Your allowed +/- 6% of the rate capacitor number before is is deemed bad.
You'll need to find someone with a meter that reads microfarids to be able to test the capacitor.
