Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Cab Faby slush machine was left turned off in a hot room for two weeks and now will not freeze. Would the heat deteriorate the 404a refrigerant?

Hi my Cab Faby slush machine was working and freezing perfectly. I moved it to my conservatory and left it sat on a table in the summer heat whilst I went on holiday for a couple of weeks (the machine was turned off and unplugged). I returned and moved it back into the house, it now turns on and appears to be working but does no freeze and does not even go cold. Is it possible that the heat has caused damage to any parts of the machine whilst it was sat in the heat or could it be that the 404a refrigerant gas has leaked or deteriorated due to the high temperatures? I have tried looking for a slush repair company but cannot fine one within 100 miles of my home. The machine is an old Cab Faby 2. If it is the 404a gas can i get it topped up at a local car garage or do i need to go somewhere more specialised?

SOURCE: Top freezer quit freezing. Refrigerator works.

Good day,
Yes, the cold weather is the cause.
Your machine is cycled off and on by the thermostat located in the fresh food compartment. When the fresh food compartment is satisfied, it will shut off the entire machine.
Any temperature below 55 degrees will reduce running time until the freezer will not function, or at best poorly.
Engineers designed domestic refrigerators to balance properly between 70 and 95 degrees. It should be in your user manual.

Thank you for using FixYa

SOURCE: Faby 3 slush machine over freezing

Assuming the mix is mixed correctly and the auger is turning, make sure the micro switch to the right of the motor in the back is in place correctly and works ok. That switch tells the freezing to stop.

Hi my double barrel slush puppie machine keeps freezing up and stops it from turning and mixing suction . Have trted all the temp setting . Thd solution is mixed right


the machine freezes and stops based on the thickness of the slush. if it's mixed right, the problem is the torque switch next to the motor (if it's a cab or a ugo machine) or the torque sensor (for torque sensor models)

How do i know if thermostat is bad


depends on the slush machine. if it's a cab or ugolini, it won't go into defrost or it'll just go warm instead of refrigerated. easy way to test on a cab faby- put the timer on defrost when the product is not frozen, turn the right auger on then off. if the compressor did not go on and off, the thermostat is bad. same for a ugolini, but it'll work with both sides, so turn one off. if you have a bunn ultra 2, the display will let you know there is a thermostat issue. if you have a bunn cds 2, it works the same as a ugolini.

Why is slush machine only freezing on one side


if it's a cab faby and it's the right side not freezing but getting cold, you have low refrigerant. if it's warm, you have a stuck solenoid, blocked capillary tube, or a bad torque micro switch. if it's a bunn ultra 2, you have a bad solenoid or the freezing button is not on freeze.

Cab Faby Not Freezing


could be any number of things: mixture being too rich (add more water), timer is off (reset defrost timer on side), 4-minute timer is not turning on compressor (inside right front panel. unplug thin blue wire harness, turn middle screw until compressor turns on), the refrigeration solenoids (is there a click from the back when you turn the switches on), does the compressor turn on, does the fan turn on (if there is no air flow, the overpressure sensor will turn the compressor off), or maybe there is a leak. if it is the last case, you will need a professional to take a look at it.
