is there any frost on the back panel inside the freezer ?
I am not quite sure about frost bryan but the customer explained that the freezer section was warming up also and not quite as cold as it should be so I am just assuming there is no frost build up since it is warmer than it should be in the freezer ?
yes I know how to check the bi metal , the heater , the 2 fans and frost pattern for a cooling issue and I also know how to check the compressor if the overload is kicking off and on. If all these items mentioned are good then that would just leave the timer and temperature thermostat is that right do you feel
I am not to sure of the best ways of checking timers and thermostats sorry if my question was confusing. I believe this fridge has a mechanical timer.
no tomorrow afternoon
I do know that the evaporator fan is running
great thanks Bryan if the relay is bad that should also mean that the freezer and fresh food sections will be most likely be pretty warm by tomorrow ?? is that right
yeah I believe the model is IGLOO Brian will both fans run in a bad relay situation ? I get confused when if the power gets shut of to the compressor from a bad relay it sounds like the power going to the fans will not be interrupted with a bad compressor relay from what I am trying to understand here. This question is for my own understanding Bryan I always figured that when the compressor relay was bad that all power to both fans were interrupted. Since the evaporator fan is running on this fridge at this point then the fan power is independent from the compressor relay ?? is that correct ?
yes both fans will run with a bad relay. this condenser fan is separately powered. in other words even if the relay failed the fan would continue to run. the relay comes after the fan anyway. the compressor doesn't send the power to the fan.
thanks bryan for all your help I will be heading straight to the relay and be giving it a shake. I will let you know tomorrow how things went . Thanks for your sound advice in the past and now
