Is there something else I can check or another way to test the fridge? I know I started out with multiple problems I'm needing to get this running though cause I don't have money to replace it. TIA.
I really hate to tell you this Timmer, but the reefer is most likely charge short. I am hoping you have the unit pretty level, but it takes an uncomfortable amount of out of level to make this happen.
Did you ever small ammonia near it?
Are there any places on it stained yellow?
If yes to either, you need a cooling unit.
This is no surprise as the half-life of these reefers is about 6 years. Being 24 years old makes it a very senior unit.
You give no hint where you are, but if you are in striking range of Shipshewana, you can get a completely rebuilt cooling unit installed at National RV Refrigeration for about half the price of new. They have a website, and will even talk on the phone.
I know there are others, but he is the only one I have even watched work.
