Freezer cycles between refrigerater temps and freezer temps every few days

Reply Tue 16 Aug, 2016 07:00 am
So I have had this Sampo fridge/freezer for a few years that I had bought as a repaired second-hand.
A few weeks ago I noticed some of my frozen things weren't frozen anymore, getting a bit slushy.
The fridge also seemed to not be so cold. So I lowered the temp.
Over a few days I noticed the freezer's temp plateaued to around fridge temps (still cold, not freezing), so I called my building's repairman. I live in Taiwan and this is usually step one for any appliance failure.
He is a general maintenance guy, and he said it seemed the refrigerant leaked out. Also noted that the compressor was still running. No ice buildup that needed to be defrosted.
I was going to wait a few days for my pay before buying a new one, when mysteriously, it started working again. Since then, it has warmed up and froze again, currently everything is frozen,
Any ideas what's going on? I'm a foreigner here and my Chinese is.. less than perfect, so I'd like to self troubleshoot before calling the big guys in.

If you hear a clicking sound coming from the back of your refrigerator/freezer, then the problem is most likely the compressor is overheating or not getting proper power and will not start. I think you should complain to your freezer company and they will make a proper solution for you.
