Original call week ago compressor running a long time, refer temps 50. Upon diagnostics freezer temp in ice cream bucket 0 degree, temp gun reading from evaporator fan 17 degree. refrigerator temp 50. 80 year man complaint was that compressor runs a long time & he has to jiggle cold control to get it going again. Replace cold control, temps started dropping in both units immediately. unit seemed fine. gentleman calls to day with same symptoms.
I will make call back tomorrow afternoon & will spend time with it. When running compressor temps seem normal, condensor & fan are very clean, don't think fan is lazy. I will be pulling freezer panel to check frost pattern. The unit is plane jane with no compartment defuzzor, air is channelling down into fridge, no blockage. Think I could have a defrost timer problem? Or something else. did hear some gurgling in unit but I thought it was normal. Frigerator is a very clean unit with not much contents in it.
