Hi,
It has lost some freon and is not charged correctly...the unit is pumping down and shutting off on low pressure and then after being off a bit the pressure comes up and it restarts...
Need to check the charge and top it off and you will be good to go..

You should check for air leaks around the door gasket or any other openings in the compartment such as where pipes or wiring is going through the wall. It sounds like a moisture problem from moisture being drawn into the compartment pass door gaskets or access holes.

sounds like a bad defrost terminator or timer wired wrong. won't make temp as the evap is not clear of ice/frost build up. check your wiring diagram for location and operation of terminator.

If condenser is clean, and everything seems to be working fine, most likely You will have a leak of freon(very slow usually) and 90% of the chance You will need to get quote to replace evaporator coils. Watch this video, might help to troubleshoot. Hope that helps.

The pressure control will be fed a live from the thermostat and feed a live to the compressor relay

if the temp is 10f compressor is fine, just need a tune up, call a specialist.

Possibly the defrost heater could be faulty or the defrost thermostat or defrost thermistor (sometimes called D-Sensors I believe). If you turn off the fridge and let it defrost itself for 12 hours and then start it again, it may work fine for a week or two (or may even be totally fine in case you left the fridge or freezer door open by accident).

How about a compressor model number. This will identify the Refrigerant used.

Have it replaced. They are important in the cooling process. Act fast because you could cause further damage. If you can, unplug it until a tech can look at it.

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.

I would have tried to get you going as fast as possible, but when you have a business things are different. If you have any commercial equipment it is always good to have a source for answers. Model Numbers and Brand Names listed someplace where you know just what you have and know who to call without having to get into an expensive repair trap. I'm not saying that those that came out overcharged you but it does happen a good bit of the time. If I can help feel free to ask here or through my websites, Thanks, John Tripp/AKA Sea Breeze

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.

REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK

OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

The thermostat sensor is located in the top rear of the interior of the unit, if you locate the dial to change temps on the inside of the unit, the sensor is attached to it, you may have to pull your fridge apart to get to it, but it can be done.

Must be kept at 0*F (-18*C) minimum

Nor-Lake Freezer... | Answered on Dec 12, 2010 | 94 views


Helloo roger.....Freezers have a thermostat to maintain the proper temperature. These are usually very simple devices. When the freezer reaches the set temperature, the thermostat interrupts the electricity flow to the compressor, which stops cooling. Set your freezer to a colder and colder setting until it doesn't cut out. If you are already at the coldest setting, your only option would be to change the freezer's internal thermostat to one that has a lower cut out capability. Most refrigeration technicians could find the thermostat for you to do this. Joe
