I don't get frost and my evaporator in a 32/million dollar helicopter with 10000 rpm vaneaxial fans.  I asked a question you don't need to be degrading.

Would this be at least worth a try to hook up some service valves and check the freon level?  I am a qualified EPA 134 tech (helicopter I work on also uses 134  8)
  Then you should of known,  when you and that so called Tech.  was there,that frost pattern was not normal.

meh I'd give him the benefit of the doubt...

willing to bet that the refrigeration system in a helicopter is designed to have an evaporator temperature above freezing and doesn't deal with a defrost cycle... more like home airconditioning...


also is that picture of the evaporator with no frost on it actually your fridge? or just one you found that looks like it... because it looks like the bimetal is on the inlet tube in that picture... and unless I'm mistaken it should be on the outlet....


Is the thermostat in the correct position.  This hasnt been replaced to my knowledge.   I noticed there are no splices on it.

The def. t-stat is a side issue. The frost pattern is a sign of a compressor not pumping the way it should or low on refrigerant. You can put gauges on the system to find out which, and add refrigerant if you want to, but the system only holds (usually) 4.5 oz. It doesn't take much of a leak to need to add more. If there is a leak you need to find the leak and fix it (very time consuming). That is why earlier in the post it was said to replace the fridge. If you are knowledgeable in refrigerant sealed systems, you know what to do from here (and have fun, I hate leakers) If you don't then the best fix is to replace the fridge because paying someone to do it will cost more than half the price of a new one.
