Nor-Lake Walk In Cooler 6ft x 8ft Norlake Indoor No Refrigeration - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


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.

Check all electrical connections and switches.
Also test for Freon leaks and that system contains Freon.
In rare cases compressor can be bad.
Most older models are not economical to repair especially if the compressor is bad, for those suggest buy a new fridge.
Observe all appliance repair safety rules.

Check that the defrost timer is running and the contacts are not burned. Also check for Freon leaks and recharge the system. Any time you are dealing with electricity follow all safety rules.

Go online and put your info into the search engine.
Then click on a parts house website and order the parts.
If you can't find a source or if parts for your model are discontinued, try removing the other legs and place your fridge on an appliance safe stand.

Often it's the gears that become bad. See if you can get a new gear set or call in an appliance repair service to install or at lease check it out.

Probably the unit is trying to fill because the on/off bar it down (senses the level of ice in the tray). Lift it up to turn off.

Set it initially to 5, then adjust after 8 hours as needed. If the regular liquids (not alcohol) start to freeze in the fridge section, it's too cold!

With a miniscule leak, it is not easy to detect with liquid type detector, a halogen leak detector may or may not detect it.
What after a leak is detected, it needs to be patched, soldered, but refrigerant would need to be removed first.
You may install a tap on service port, it clamps on the line and no soldering required.
With normal operation, the top 2/3 of the condenser coil is hotter than the bottom 1/3 of the coil.
