Hello, what is the frost pattern on the evaporator?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Consistent, snow like frost, not heavy.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

The whole coil is frosty correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sir, correct.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK if that is the case and the fan is blowing the units compressor is likely not able to pull down the correct suction pressure. The older TFX models were famous for doing this. The frost pattern looks good but really it is not cold enough. Get you finger wet and touch the evaporator, it will likely not stick since the evaporator is cold but not enough. You need a new compressor for this issue. That unit is extremely old and parts are NLA so I think it is time for a new one sorry.
