2 things happened this summer, I think they are connected.......
1 - Lovely Texas had the hottest summer ever, and I mean HOT. My poor 89 Excella spent the time sitting in the heat.
2 - Upon our first trip we could take when things cooled down, the refer appears to suddenly work in reverse, inside hot, outside near the bottom of the coils, it's cool.
I can't find anything similar on the site here, so I thought I would see what folks think of this one. Works the same on both electric and propane. Will start with a cool interior and within an hour or two the freezer cooling plate will almost toast your fingers, and temp easily goes off the scale, in the wrong direction. Inside the main section, temp slowly builds to above 60 degrees, and again proceeds off the scale. All this drama is accompanied by a fine sound of severe stomach distress,,,, not mine, the refers. Lots of gurgles and what not. Yes, it's level.
No smell of ammonia at all, and no visible residue inside or outside.
Topping all this off, when I go outside and open the access door, the cooling coil input (I think it's the input) to the bottom of the reservoir is nice and cool. Geeze.
My plan is to remove the refer, and "burp" it........ although I read that burping does not usually do any good on the units after the early 80's. At least I'll have the thing out for the next step........ which would be???
thanks for your thoughts
