Was the gas tank connected to the fridge during the entire time it was unused? Thank you.

No gas bottle was connected to the fridge

OK. Thank you. If the fridge is still running without cooling down any further, you'll need to consider the refrigerant charge in the sealed system needing recharging. I'll see what I can find on the subject, and I'll get back to you.

There's no way for a DIYer to check the refrigerant charge, as it requires special test and charging equipment. Any local refrigeration technician can perform the task.If you're satisfied with my answer, please click the ACCEPT box. It's the way JustAnswer experts get pair for efforts on your behalf.
