Model Number: UF-191T   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: More than 10 years

Hi. I have an old freezer, Frigidaire model UF-191T. Even after it's turned on for more than a day, the freezer and the cooling coil remain at room temperature. The compressor runs and sounds normal. It makes a nice hum, without any rattles, clicking, etc. Can you diagnose the problem with this amount of information? If more information is needed, I am willing to take parts off and/or do testing with a basic multimeter. I can't do anything with refrigerant, though.

Hi,

Sounds like it's out of refrigerant.
Sealed system repairs are time consuming and costly.
Unless it's under manufacture warranty it's probably not worth repairing.

Thank you for the quick response. Your answer kept me from wasting hours on a dead-end project.
