On R22 coolers the cycle of on off is the way the defrost takes place when you begin to notice on the evaporator coils the refrigerator is showing signs of loss of R22 Freon. Now some do have defrost elements built into the evaporator coil inside the cooler section but because it is a cooler I don?t think so. The question is has the refrigerator begun to continue running and the temperature climbing slowly. Have you noticed that the cooler is hard to maintain 37 to 42 degrees? Let me know more so can help you better, Thanks Sea Breeze. You are welcome to visit mu website and enter the model number into the model search feature a see just what is listed as replaceable part.

    Forgot to mention that if the thermostat is bad it will freeze because the stop time when the thermostat tells the cooler to stop running causes the frost to melt away from the evaporator core.Sea Breeze

Artic air refrigerator not cooling well. Temp is getting warmer. Do I need a new compressor and if so where do I go to order one?


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP

OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Defrost is stuck in one all time it not cooling or freezing


A DEFROST TIMER is a cycling device, it times the frequency and duration that the defrost heater coils melt the ice that builds up around the evaporator coils. If ice is allowed to build up, air will not be able to freely flow past them - resulting in reduced efficiency and sometimes a drastic warming of the cooling unit.

zjlimited_1583.jpg

Most of the time, the defrost timer is in the cooling mode, allowing the compressor to activate when the thermostat signals it to. The remaining part of the cycle (usually less than 30 minutes)the timer is in defrost mode. In this mode, it signals the defrost heaters to melt the ice build up on the coils. This defrost action is limited by the defrost thermostat. If your DETROST TIMER go to bad, one symptom would be if your refrigerator is not cooling. Although there are many causes of this symptom, A stuck defrost timer can be one of them. The timer can get stuck in cooling (compressor activated) or defrost mode (defrost heaters activated) for usually two reasons:
- The timer motor can fail for one.
- The gears can also become locked up.

No matter what the reason is or which mode the defrost timer gets stuck in, the refrigerator can stop cooling. When the refrigerator is stuck in defrost mode, the compressor no longer comes on to cool the unit. If the timer gets stuck in cooling mode, the evaporator coils never get a chance to defrost, causing ice build-up to the point where there is a complete blockage of airflow past the coils.

The defrost timer can also cause the refrigerator to stop cooling due to failure of the internal switch which activates either the compressor or heater coils. Finally, when doing any repair on a refrigerator, check the condenser coils for dust buildup and clean accordingly.

Good luck.

MY GE REFRIGERATOR MODEL TFHW24RRA HAS ICE BIULD UP ON THE FREEZER COILS


the freezer is not going into the defrost cycle properly. first completely defrost the freezer compartment. to do this you first remove all the food from the freezer compartment then unplug the refrigerator from the wall. next put a large pan of very warm water in to the freezer and close the door. the heat from the hot water should melt the ice off the freezer coils. if the drain is working the water should go down the little drain into the catch pan in the bottom of the unit( way down underneath next to the floor) if it doesn't drain down use towels to soak up the water then find the little hose and drain that go to the bottom and clean it out. if the drain was blocked that could cause the ice build up. If the drain is not blocked then the defrost timer or the defrost coil is not working. the defrost timer is a small unit usually located behind the kick plate at the bottom of the fridge or sometimes at the back behind the paper shroud. this is the manual advance knob and should allow you turn the knob until the defrost position is reached. you should hear a little click as it reaches the defrost position. make a mark on the timer knob with a magic marker and then plug the refrigerator back in. over the next 4 hours you should see the knob turn (like a really slow moving clock). after you plug the refrigerator back in watch for ice build up on the coils. If it starts to build up again you will need to figure out if it is the defrost coil or the defrost timer that is not working. the manual defrost technique will keep the unit in service but is a total pain. eventually you will need to replace the defrost coil or once in a while it is the defrost timer that doesn't work. this is not easy even for the repair man but it can be done. first locate the defrost coil(a long thick wire looking thing) and check for continuity. if you don't have a multi meter and a basic understanding of the repair technique you should get professional help. to keep the refrigerator running and keep the ice off the coils you will need to repeat the defrost procedure from time to time. this is not that easy to do but will keep your refrigerator running.

Hi, we have an Arctic Air frig R22CWF3 One or 2 times a week the compressor and fan stop. It gets up to about 60 degrees before it starts up again. I'm not sure how long it is off. We can't trust it with...


Yes its a timer and/or a Klixon switch that mounts to the Evap coil. It sounds like the timer is working, because it will come back on after a time out. I would look for the klixon to be bad. Small switch with two wires that mount to the evap coil pipes with a clip. This (makes) to tell the timer its ok to defrost, then at a certain temp say 55 degs it will break to stop defrost. The timer is staying in to a default time of aprox 45 mins.

Food is freezing


usually there is an adjustment at the back for the difference between the fridge and freezer compartment. Often is just a vane that blocks freezer air, too much air would freeze the food. Normally you set the fridge thermostat for a normal food temp, then adjust the air to keep the food warmer than the freezer.
