DBC039A1BDB Danby Beverage Center Not Cooling Below 50F

Hi, I’m new to the thread. I searched but could not find the answer to my problem. I have a Danby Beverage Center (4.5 cu ft mini fridge) that will no longer cool below 50F (normal down to 39F). The compressor runs full time and gets hot over time. The coils inside the fridge get cold and the fan is running and blowing cold air. I have tried unplugging and let sit for several days but this does not help. Is it possible there is something wrong with the control board? Does it have a defrost mode that might be stuck on? Does this have a condenser fan I am not aware of? Or is it more likely that I just lost some of the AC Charge (R134A). No fittings to test Hi/Lo pressures. I’m not much for soldering fittings on but I’m willing to try if that is the most likely cause (I’ve done basic auto AC). Worst case, I wouldn’t mind paying someone to install fittings and add new charge. Thanks for the help, Jeff.

kenmore freezer 2010 model compressor running fan running does not cool at all room temperature only

hi

i have a newer sears kenmore upright freezer auto defrost model made in 2010

model 253.284xxxxxx

it has an electronic display panel on top left corner for adjusting settings

when plugged in the fan immediatley comes on and you can hear the compressor humming slightly and is vibrating slightly (seems to be running) and gets luke warm to touch….not hot at all….just slightly warm

the air blowing into freezer is at room temperature only

does not get cold at all…the temp gauge on the front simply shows basically current room temperature

on the front it has the words high temp lit up and it displays the current temp which is room temperature….i have it outside today and it shows temp on front of 58f which is approx the temp outside

for the heck of it i connected the freezer to an electricity usage monitor device and it shows that the entire freezer is only drawing .6A including fan and compressor and using about 70watts…….this most certainly is an issue….

can someone guide me to find out why freezer is not cooling at all?.

thank you

Air Diffuser housing removal – KitchenAid KSRL25FXMS03

Hi Everyone,
I needed some help figuring out how to remove the housing for an air diffuser on a KitchenAid refrigerator. I looked up info on the web and I reviewed whatever I found and youtube as well. But most housing for the air diffuser is easily removed in some models with a simple screw. However, my luck and refrigerator the housing is held in place by what I thought was a simple nut. The air diffuser housing looks similar to other housings, but this one has a small canal where I thought I can fit a socket to remove the nut, but when I took pictures of the canal it is some sort of rounded off nut? I have no idea how I would take it off, unless of course I need a special tool. If anyone has any info I would appreciate it as to inform me what kind of nut it is and what tool is necessary to remove this.

Bosch side by side B20CS51SNS fridge section has very different temps for each shelf

The fridge section is set to 4 Celcius on the control panel, but the inside of the fridge has wildly varying temperatures, mostly depending on shelf, but even between the left and right sides of the same shelf. The top shelf, when measuring the items with a laser thermometer, varies between 9 to 14 C. The items on the next shelf down read from 2 to 4 C, the next -1 to 3, and the drawers below that are around 8, 12, and 12C. I’m hoping this is just a fan problem, like the similar issue I had with the freezer side a few years ago, which was fixed with a new fan. But in that case the freezer was colder as you went lower, which is what I would have expected to see in the fridge if it was just a fan issue, not warmer at the top and bottom, and freezing in the middle?

GE Freezer frost problem

I have a GE side by side and have been having issues with frost in my freezer. I researched the issue and it was suggested that it could be the gasket. It did looked worn and I noticed the freezer wasn’t shutting all the way. Which causes warm air to enter and cause frost. I fixed that issue and my freezer closes completely. I am back to having frost build up. My food is staying frozen so that’s not an issue. Any thoughts?

B26FT70SNS Bosch 800 Series Freezing Food

Hello, I have a Bosch 800 Series refrigerator and it has been freezing food. The crisper drawers are the worst culprits, but food will freeze anywhere in the fridge, especially if you put it at the back of the fridge. I spoke to a repair guy a year ago and he mentioned I should tape over the vents at the back of the unit and just leave the two on top open. I have tried this, but it does not seem to help. There appears to be two vents on the bottom of the fridge as well which I have not taped. The compressor seems to be working fine……the unit does not make any unusual noises and it does not run for prolonged periods of time. I have also tried increasing the temp via the digital temp control on the front of the fridge, but it will still freeze things in the drawers and at the back of the fridge. Any thoughts on what could be causing this? The thermostat possibly? I’m sure I will need to get a repair person in, but I would like to have some idea of what the possibilities could be before I am charged to replace 5 things that did not need to be replaced.

Thank you

U-Line WCM98 ice maker is cooling but not freezing

Got an U-Line ice maker from a cousin who was getting rid of it because it was not freezing. I plugged it up and let it run all day but it only get cool inside. The inside top of the ice maker does have ice accumulate on it and the inside sides get to about 42°F to 50°F. The total temperature inside stays at around 45°F. I cleaned the coils (they were dusty) but the inside temp will not go any lower. If you need anymore information just let me know and I will gladly provide. Thanks in advance for any advice that you can give me.

HDVS120 Vintage Select wine cooler thermostat is not working

I have a Vintage Select Wine cooler which no longer gets cold enough. I had repair guy come and pur freon in it and it still would not get cold.
He suggested getting a new smart board for the cooler but they no longer sell the part.
His other suggestion was to get an external thermostat and bypass the internal thermostat.
I’m having trouble s figuring out how to connect the external thermostat to bypass the internal thermostat.
Which wires internally do I need to disconnect?
Thanks,

SubZero 550 – Ice Maker not working (tried many other tips from the forum)

I have a SubZero 550 that stopped making ice. These are the notes/results based on trying things I’ve read from other messages in these forums:
– Ice feeler arm is locked in the up position
– I’ve tried to force it down but it won’t budge (and I don’t want to break it)
– Defrosted the freezer
– When I restarted the fridge/freezer the water filled the ice maker
– The feeler arm is still locked in the up position
– There are 3 switches in the freezer. 1 for the light, 1 that turns on the freezer fan and 1 the ice maker tray closes
– I taped the ice maker tray switch closed to force cycle (is this the only one that needs to be “closed?)
– When it is taped shut the ice maker makes a “ticking” noise – I’ve checked a day later and it is still making the ticking sound but no ice has dropped and feeler arm is still up.
– Tried to force cycle the ice maker (jumpering “T” and “H” for 10 seconds). There was a small spark so the jump was working but it made no effect

I feel that the issue is around the feeler arm being locked in the up position but I don’t want to force it down.

Other thing I haven’t tried yet is to reset the circuit breaker.

Anything else I can try or do I need a new ice maker?

Thanks

Derek
