Default Fridge FIXED! - Burped/diagnosed and SAVED $1000 - (VIDEO)

Ok team, finally got to the bottom of my fridge not working. Since I learned a ton about "absorption fridges" I thought I would pass on some knowledge for newbies like myself. I try to video all my work to help others. Thanks again to Mike (NKGuitar), Mojoman, Booster, and Pepster as usual ready to help! Thanks gents!

Here is the video:

Hope it helps.

The problem is caused by operating the fridge on un-level ground.

This is probably the culmulative result of years of minor un-level operation.

Good that you have the problem licked.

I had a problem with one years ago and contacted the importer of my unit. They told me to take it out and turn it upside down and listen for the liquid to run down. Leave it upside down for an hour or so. Then shake it real good, turn it back up to the normal position. And reinstall it and test it. He explained that there are two chemical in them and from short uses or uneven use that they don't stay mixed. And if that doesn't fix it nothing will.

Well it fixed it, and it work better than it ever did.

Glad you found out about the fix.
