Kenmore Elite Refrig Not Cooling
« on: June 16, 2014, 10:00:30 PM »
I have a Kenmore Elite S.S. French Door Refrigerator/Freezer Model #795.77562600 which is made by LG that will not cooling. Compressor was recently replaced with a NEW Embraco 1/4 Plus Compressor, fresh install, fresh solder joints, fresh vacuum for 20 minutes, fresh R134 Freon at 4.40 ounces which is called for by the mfg. sticker on inside of. Compressor starts but no cooling what so ever? Any suggestions.

Did you replace the compressor or you following someone else?  If I was to guess, I would say the cap tube end got brazed over.  I always put small bit of oil on the end of the cap tube to keep the silver away. Hooking up some gauges should eliminate any guessing.
