I came home from 4 days in Tampa to find my fresh food compartment almost as warm as Tampa. :-(
Over the summer, I had the fresh food evaporator replaced, and the R12 replaced with some other refreigerant (R414a or something..) This worked very well for a time... it was an expensive repair, but I assumed I could squeeze a few more years out of the fridge
For the past few weeks, the fridge seemed to be noisier than before, and the kitchen seemed a bit hotter, as a result of the fridge, but I am not home too much, so I figured I was imagining - perhaps not.
So - the freezer is ice cold stll. The lights work, both compressors are pretty warm to the touch, and the fan runs when I close the door switch manually. The condenser fan at the top is not turning, but I am not sure if it is supposed to be.
Serial # is M806968
Manufacture date is October 1989
Am I at the end of the line with my beloved 511? (Not to mention being $2,100 lighter for the repair over the summer...)
