12 cu ft frost free fridge not cooling properly

Page 3 of 3  
There are no indications of a leak anywhere. If I saw an oily spot somewhere on the floor or in the fridge, I'd certainly investigate. So, it might be a worn out compressor, but in that case it's more economical to buy a new fridge anyway.

They won't allow me to "top up" the refrigerant charge without finding and fixing the leak, and that part is gonna cost a few hundred dollars cuz of the requirement to evacuate the sealed system and find and fix the leak before adding refrigerant.
Well, now I got lots of spare parts for my other fridges.

Buy a new energy star fridge. It'll pay for itself in a few years.

Worn out compressor is big decision time. After all this consideration, would be nice to get the amp draw, and see what the pressures are like. But, I doubt that will happen.
Would you like a few thoughts on which brands I like, and which I do not?

No. I'm going to be buying a GE "builder's brand" because I get a discount on them since I'm continuously buying appliances. I can buy a new 12 cu. ft. fridge for about $400. That same fridge will normally sell for about $475.

I take it that this is meant to mean that you don't like the new style of GE 12 cubic foot fridges?
I have two of them in my building now, soon to be 3, and so far the only thing I don't like about them is that the defrost timer is located at the back of the fridge near the compressor; an unneccesarily hard location to access.

I'm wondering how people can live with a 12 cu. ft. refrigerator these days. Few dollars more for an 18 cu. ft.
I guess I'm an energy hog with a 22, 18 and a18 freezer.
