OK SO MY NEXT QUESTION IS WHAT SIZE METERING DEVICE IS IT (CAPILLARY TUBE),AND HOW LONG.AGAIN THANK YOU .
We do not have an exact size of the cap tube but the cap tube cannot be replaced. The cap tube runs from the filter drier to the evaporator and carries the liquid refrigerant to the evaporator for the evaporation process. The cap tube also runs through the cabinet and is attached to the suction line.
Why is center mullion between fridge and freezer extremely hot to touch.
Answer Hello Mike. Check the condenser fan motor and see if it is bad. Also, make sure the condenser coils are good and clean.
If its not a check valve then what could it possible be?
Answer Hello Mark. If you have a restriction, you will need an HVAC tech to come out and install and new evaporator into the unit.
Does this system have a check valve at the evap?
Answer Hello Mark. No, there is no check valve at the evaporator on this unit.
Everything is working fine EXCEPT: the panel on the outside walls is warm and the one dividing the refer/freezer is very hot. Almost too hot to touch. Is there a heater in this side by side that maybe evaporates moisture? Can it be disconnected? I live in Panama and service is almost impossible to find (well, a tech anyway) so I must jury rig this myself or end up with a burned up refer...can you help?
There is not a heater in the mullion or the cabinet of the refrigerator for keeping moisture off the cabinet. This is done by the use of the refrigerant lines that run throughout the unit. Normally if the cabinet and center mullion are getting to hot then it indicates a bad condenser fan motor or the coils are completely impacted. You will want to check these things to make sure that they are in order.
