Hello and welcome,
\015\012if it's old and sat off and not used for a year. Then there may be a\015\012tiny crack in a seal that allowed the freon to leak out over time. Or\015\012it may not be tiny!
\015\012If the repair cost half the price of a new unit it is not worth\015\012repairing. if the unit is ten years old or more then a new one will be\015\012MUCH cheaper!!
\015\012 to operate!!!!!!!!

I have been using Wirlpool ARC 4020/1 IX for two years. Recently the following problem started to occur at random times: it turns on normally and in a minute it starts beating. The noise, coming from the compressor, is regular and keeps that way on up to 1 hour. At that, the compressor is warming up and gets hot at the end of session, while the heat exchange grid on the back is cool. At last, its turns off and turns on in normal mode at due time. Because it happans at random, I cannot show an

Refrigerator buzzing I have a maytag refrigerator, about 4 years old. It started buzzing a good bit lately. It does it when it's trying to kick on. It doesn't do it every time, sometimes it starts just fine. But when it does do it, it may do it any where from 2 to 5 times before it will kick on. I was wondering if you could help me decide what the problem is, so that I can get the right part to fix it. Thanks.

Hi, I have a Consul gas fridge which used to be working fine. Recently it started smoking out of the flue and sooting up extremely inside the flue. I've cleaned it out and cleaned the burner, injector and gas line with compressed air, reconnected it and turned it back on. The flame is nice and blue, with lilac on the outside, but the flame is way too big. I tried turning the gas down on the gasbottle but makes no difference. Would you know what the problem is?

I just bought a GE profile side by side refrigerator model PSS23M SS with a water dispenser.

I have a Frigidaire ElictriSaver fridge, Model #SE1081A,approx 30+years old.For the past 20 years it has been turned on but used as a back-up only.VERY seldom opened.Recently it quickly leaked quite a lot on the floor (no water or moisture in interior or freezer).No icemaker on this model.Any ideas on what the problem could be or if it's worth a service call?

Hello, I have a model MTB2455AR in normal household use for about 9-10 years. Recently the cooling performance degraded rapidly. The frozen food started thawing and the main box went up to 50 degrees and the icemaker stopped making any ice blocks. The back of the freezer compartment was building up a layer of frost. We turned it off for a day and opened the lower back and found a lot of dust, lint, and pet hair. We cleaned off the coil and the fan and everything else we could reach easily
