Freezer and cooler do not get cold. Cpmpressor and fans seem to be running ok. I had the unit unplugged while I cleaned the coils and when I lplugged it back in the unit got cold again. Then after being plugged in for a while it stopped working again. What should I check 1st and how do I check it? What would be the 2nd and 3rd most likely suspect parts?
You will want to check the coils in the freezer and make sure that they are not impacted with ice. If they are then there is a defrost issue in which you would want to do a continuity test on the defrost thermostat and defrost heater. If they check ok then the defrost timer/adc board would need replaced. If the coils check ok then you will want to check to make sure that the evaporator fan motor is running and if not check for 120 vac to the fan motor and if there is voltage present then replace the fan motor. Also check the condenser fan motor the same way. Check for 120 vac. These would be the most common reasons for the unit not cooling.
