Sodas Machine Won't Cool
 
3 Attachment(s)
I have an old soda machine I've salvaged that won't cool properly. The compressor kicks on and cools the cold plate, but after 3 hours it stops cooling. I can repeat this over and over -- if I turn it off and then turn it on later it does the same thing -- cools for the first three hours but then stops cooling. Could this be a lack of freon (and a freon leak) or is this likely something else? Help.:confused:

The compressor is depicted below. It has been cleaned and repainted (the 3rd pic).

Hi,

I only have worked on a couple of these over the years for friends and such.

What happens after the 3 hours? Stops dead, compressor clicks on and off, unit keeps running but is not cooling?

Shouldn't normally cool properly for those 3 hours if we had a leak.
