The fan is running. It has been back on for 1hr 15min. It was off for 24 hours. I had done the same thing a week ago and it worked fine for a day or so
It feels room temp. no heat coming out
That area should be hot to warm if the compressor is circulating any coolant at all. You can pull the inside lower rear panel from inside the freezer and verify the coils are not frosted completely from the bottom to the top. They should be after an hour and a half. That is a little too soon for the refrigerator to be cold, and even with a low coolant condition enough may still be in the system to cool it if you leave it running overnight but it is definitely low. When coolant circulates it pulls the heat out of the refrigerator. It becomes very warm and one of the places that coolant goes is between the doors. This is by design to keep that area from sweating during the summer months. So heat is supposed to be present there in that area. The other thing you can do is touch the compressor on the top and be sure it is actually vibrating/running. If it is not running get back to me. If it is operating check the coils if they are not lightly frosted from top to bottom in the freezer it is not going to get cold and your going to need a tech with a coolant recovery license to come and put coolant in it. Please ask if you have questions. Thanks, Barry
The freezer seems to be working. If you touch the area between the doors it is warm. Do I need to remove the panel again? to check the compresso?
Ok I will take the panel off. The fan just stopped and ice came out of the ice maker. I will get back with you.
There is a small amount of frost on the botom of the coils. Where is the compressor located?
Yea lightly coated at the top and quite heavy at the bottom
It is cool but not real cold, and the coils have lost their frost and it seems like it has stopped working
It doesn't seem to be. Is it hooked to a blue and a pink wire?
Thank you the refrigerator just started working again. Also there is a gap between the back panel and the sides. Is this ok?
