Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.OK so it sounds like you've had a lot done but the first thing you need to do now is remove everything out of the freezer and remove the screws going into the lower back panel inside the freezer. Remove this panel and what does the frost look like on the silver coils behind this panel? Is the fan above the coils running?
After reading some of the questions, I thought it was perhaps the fan which cools the compressor as stated to a previous question. The repair man removed all the panels last week on all three sides before ordering the compressor. Thank goodness I have a service policy on the fridge. Atleast before the new compressor was installed, the ice cubes were frozen fairly well. I noticed this morning the water was dripping from the ice container. I know I am getting might tired of waiting for repairmen.... and not getting it fixed. I did look in my manual which came with the fridge. It only gave basic info nothing about parts or wiring. I can't believe this whole things. They are to return Saturday between 8-5. This will be the third Sat I have waited for them to come to my house. I have ruined so much food from the fridge and the freezer. Please let me know it you think of anything else.... Thanks
As a 75 y/o widow, it is not fesible for me to remove the panels. It was a chore for the repairman with his electric drill. I asked the repairman before he installed the compressor if it could be low on freon. The motor has been running constantly for 5-6 weeks now without getting lower than 42 earlier, now it is 50 something. Does Freon have an odor? I noticed a different odor in the freezer compartment immediately after the repair man left. I just thought maybe it was from using the fire tourch earlier. I noticed a yellow substance on the bottom of the freezer this evening. I felt it to see if it could be oil. Don't think so. It was not there earlier in the evening. Perhaps it was something stuck under neath a shelve. Other than that, the inside is spotless. Thanks
The fridge is built into the cabinets. Several days ago, I felt the section of the wood cabinet about 5 foot off the floor. It was warmer than the other sections. I checked again in the last few minutes and it is not warm eventho some motor has been running constantly???. I felt the yellow spot again on the bottom. It didn't feel greasy, it felt a little gritty. It was the color of a dark vanilla ice cream, opaque. I will check in the morning to see if the substance appears again. Thanks
