Hello All,

 

So after a week of vacation i return home broke to find that the fridge was not working, what a pleasent surprised.

 

I been googling the web, but seem not to find any real solution.. i'd hate to replace it at this moment eventhough this Fridge has been around for few year.

 

Regardless, the only cooling activity i see is on the very thin copper pipe on the freezer and when i stops getting iced, the rest just kind get a bit moist and that's all with the cooling.

 

I was wondering if someone has seen similar and if there is any hope to get it back working, before i start shopping for a new one?

 

 

I have a picture, but don't see a way on attaching it.

 

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

A picture would be good.  Are you talking about inside the freezer by the evaporator?  If the compressor is running and this is all your getting then you have an internal problem.  Possibly a bad compressor, a leak or a restriction.  None of these things is good and they are above the skill level of most do it yourselfers.  If on the other hand the compressor is hot and kicking off because of a clogged condensor or a bad condensor fan motor you may be able to save it.  If however the compressor seems to be running continuously and not cooling and this is your symptom then I'd say in most cases it's time to go shopping.  Check the compressor and try to upload a picture.  Post it on a third party site and attach a link.  Sometimes that works.

good picture, that is usually a sign of low on gas or a restriction.  Have you checked the condensor?  If it is real hot then It may be a restriticion.  If you can unplug the fridge and plug it right back in, and it starts then it may be low on gas.  Either way it is not looking good.  I'm in Costa Rica and I would charge $150 to try to fix it if it was restricted.  When I work on something like this with a restiction I don't guarenty the work.  I don't even guarenty that it will work after I do the work.  Sometimes they are so bad they are beyound fixing.  If it's a leak it could run another $100 dollars.  I really try to stay away form these repairs because they can come back on me and then I have a big headache.  Again this is Costa Rica and we don't have all the regulation you have in the states. I'm sure it is probably double this in the States.  Maybe someone else will come on a give you some information on the local prices.  Like I said it may be time to go shopping.
