Top 20 Nor-Lake Walk In Cooler 6ft x 8ft Norlake Indoor No Refrigeration Questions & Answers


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
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
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

Unfortunately, this model has had quite a few problems, because it is such a complicated refrigerator. Many times a shorted component that is connected to the Iceland main control board will affect completely unrelated items making it easy to chase your tail for hours. I would suspect the freezer thermostor - only because we have had to replace it many times in the past.
Suggest you go to the www.searspartsdirect.com and copy the electrical diagram and then verify electrical reading on the main PCB, to try to isolate the problem.

There are a few companys that make temp chart recorders that are battery controled and you could get one of these and just put it inside the refrigerator, problem solved. Check at United Refrigeration, and Johnstone Supply they both have manufacturers that will allow you to keep charts. The 2 things to keep in mind 1 How often are you going to change charts, 2 what temperature range are you looking for.

Oh yes and Im sure there is a company that makes a remote sensed temp recorder that can tie into a computer and print out charts as needed. This is a little more specialized but I know the technology is asvailable. Probably Johnson or Penn Controls would know about this.

If this helps you in any way please rate me as high as you can. If you need to contact me and I can do the searching for you post back.

Frostless freezers will go into a defrost cycle periodically and the frost that accumulates in the freezer section melts and runs into a pan under the refrigerator section, through a drain hose. If this hose clogs with crud (common) the melt water can't drain and leaks into refrigerator section (or it was designed this way so as to prevent refreezing.) As the drain is clogged, thd water builds up until it overflows to floor level.

You need to locate the drain in bottom of the refrigerator section (usually near the back where its hidden from view) and clear it out. (Use care as its usually only a vinly hose and can be punctured or slipped off its connection).

P1 is usually the code for a temperature probe error - the refrigeration should now operate on a time cycle until the temp probe is replaced

Need a little more info, but it should have a removable container that hold the ice. That comes out. If it is too jammed up with ice to move it, you will have to carefully chip away at some of it, or let it thaw. Once you are able, take the container out and empty it completely dry it out. If that doesn't do it, there is a problem with the mechanism.

Depends on the settings you set the frig and freezer to , as soon the settings are reached it should shut off, anything longer than a few hours points to a fault.

A sensor tube ( looks like a wire ) in front, at air inlet, is the temperature sensor and many times this sensor is poorly cared for and even broken off by people. It's my guess, this sensor may be the problem for it controls compressor cycling on and off.

The unit wont work with just ice bottles. It needs water to run down the pads to create the evaporative effect. The tank should have a drain somewhere. Look down the bottom of the machine for a plug or tap that can be removed / unscrewed to drain the water out.

Have you reset the icemaker? Usually there's a lever or switch that you have press to reset it. You did not post the make/model of your fridge so it's difficult to say which reset device you have.

before you spend a lot defrost/ unplug. lets the ice in the crossovers melt. plug it back in and see what you get.

Usually, this is caused by a stuck or bad evaporator fan. There are several other possible causes. The first thing that comes to mind is low freon.
