I am working on an Ingliss refrigerator that is not cooling at all... originally the problem was that the fridge wouldn't run at all. The fridge was working in a house, then moved to a new house (it was never laid on its side). Once in the new house... kaputski. I replaced the compressor start relay part# 2225929 and now the compressor and fans are all running, but I'm still not getting any cold air. Any thoughts on where to go from here? Is it possible that the move caused some debris to work itself loose in a line and is causing a restriction?

What kind of temps are you getting in the fresh food side and what are the temps in the freezer side?

Let it run 12-24 hours before taking temps.

if compressor runs and you have no cool its either a restriction or leak,  or damaged compressor,hard to determine without attaching service guages

either can happen during a move, inspect all refrig tubing for kinks or breaks

I have had thermometers in the freezer and refrigerator and they are both reading close to room temperature... between 68 and 72

all of the tubing is in good shape... 'spose it's time to collect the refrigerant and do a nitrogen flush... that is as soon as I get my vacuum pump, gauges, tanks, and all the other expensive goodies and tools required for refrigeration repair... so far I've gotten away with easy fixes, like cold controls and defrost heaters... ah well, thanks for the help amigos

here is a shot of the back.... compressor looks good, but it looks like the drier has some corrosion on it... possible leak?

I don't use guages. The crosion on the dryer usally not a problem, caused by condensation.

Feel the compresser, inlet, and out let lines. Are they Hot, warm, cold?

I would rule out and air flow problem, with temps like that.

The compressor is definitely hot to the touch. Inlet line is room temperature and outlet line is warm.

I would rather hear the outlet is hot.
I will also assume the condeser area is clean and not a dust bunny nest, also the condenser fan is running too.

Next, I would let run for sevarl hours, then remove the evaporater cover. If you see a lite skim of frost over the total area of the evapoter, then the compesser, and sealed system is working as it should.

If the evapoter has only a parcel area of frost, like mostly at the inlet side of the evapater, ..you have a system problem, ie blockage, bad compresser....for me its time to go shopping.

Yeah, the condenser fan is working fine, and the coils are clean as a whistle.

I let the fridge run over the weekend and then took the cover off of the evaporator this morning... no coating of ice anywhere on the evaporator. It's as warm as can be.

 Seems like we've pretty much narrowed it down to a system problem...
