Hi All - We have this unit purchased in 2005 that had the evaporator fan replaced long ago and an unresponsive Advanced Temperature Control that has been stuck on Freezer 0 and refer 40 for a couple of years but running fine otherwise with no problems. 2 days ago I noticed that the freezer temp was 11 degrees, the refer 42 and watched the temps climb over time.  Removed the contents and called the Independent repair guy we use.  He came out and found that although the compressor was running it was not pumping refrigerant.  He exposed the evaporator and found no leaks. His diagnosis was compressor internal failure and while it was running there was no hot output, cold return or noise coming from inside.  The compressor is a Tecumseh TPG1370YXA labelled Brazil.  I have read that there have been a lot of failures with these units and am wondering if this type of failure is one of them and if it could possibly be another problem that the repairman missed although a number of my neighbors have used him with absolutely no complaints.  Thanks, Bob

Brother Bob, was there any frost on the evaporator, excessive or otherwise?

None:  I pulled the plug on the unit Weds afternoon.  Thurs AM I rolled it out and removed the back cover exposing the compressor and there was no water in the drip tray.  The serviceman plugged it in and after 5-10 minutes nothing showed at all: suction and discharge were the same temperature ( by touch).
