Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The compressor will run at times, but the condenser fan doesn't start and the unit shuts off on either high pressure or the compressor overheats. Why doesn't the fan start with the compressor? The unit is less than a year old and it has done this since it was new. It may work for a month or two, but eventually it does it again.

Not cooling Jenn-Air refrigerator Model JSD 2695 KES used since July, 2007, starts slowly warming up yesterday over a 6 hr period though the doors were seldom opened. Rear fan and internal fan continued to operate but it did not seem that the compressor was running. No icing was observed, unit fairly dust free underneath. Transferred out all food, unplugged unit for 5 minutes, plugged in = nothing, turned off power with inside control for 5 minutes, turned back on = still no compressor, thou

I have a frigidaire model FRT21LRGW, the compressor was changed in 2005, evaporator& heat exchanger was changed in jan.2009. Last week apr.2009 the unit started giving problem AGAIN. Freezer and fridge not cooling enough. Fan is blowing air(but not cold air). I can also hear the compressor kick-in. I am not a mechanic but was hoping if someone can help before i buy a new fridge.

Maytag MSD 2756 DEW Refrig. Was having defrost problems, so we decided to get a new unit and move this one to garage (yeah!) and replace the ADC. Well, I moved it to the garage but now the compressor wont work. The fans and lights work, but nuthin from the compressor.Would it be the start cap or the start relay? How would I test? Thanks.

We have a Kirkland Signature model SS25HFXLS side-by-side stainless steel purchased 2003. Have never had a problem with unit until today. Unit not cooling at all. Fan runs continuously & compressor is hotter than a firecracker. Coils have been cleaned recently. I unplugged unit & I'm guessing compressor is bad. Would it be worth having unit checked out or just buy a new one? What is a ballprk figure for a new compressor????

Fan was running but neither fridge or freezer were getting cold. You could hear the compressor attempt to start every so often. We replaced the capacitor and the relay and the unit cooled down. The freezer was at 25 when I went to bed. This morning, the unit is no longer coolig. Fan is running and compressor is attempting to start. Any ideas?

Found the unit circulator fan running but not cool in the freezer or fresh food compartment. I unplugged and replugged and the compressor started running shortly. I checked the frost-free feature already (clicked the light switch in the fresh food compartment 5 times in 6 seconds). I took the cover off the back of the cabinet and the compressor is now hot, but not too hot to touch. The unit is just not cooling off very quickly. I know the compressor is only 1.1 to 1.6 amps and that's not much. I

Freezer not cold enough...I tried cleaning vent for fan because it was filthy...I had a feeling the compressor was overheating....touched compressor, hot to touch....freezer started to get progressively warmer over one week period...to the point that ice cubes started melting...called in repair person, opened inside panel of fridge...no frost on coil...frost up to thermostat...was told the compressor is shot and is time for a new fridge...is this correct?

Sounds like he was right. If it not to old you could try some freon. But if there is a leak. you won't ever find it. Make sure that the coils on the outside are clean. they may be under the unit. If there is a fan the make sure it is running. and try ... Refrigerators

We have a sandwich makeline True model TSSU-72-30m-8. It sounds like the compressor is making a low rumbling noise and the fan is not turning. This started happening when I had unplugged the unit to move it to the side and replugged it back in. The unit was working fine until that point. Is the compressor toast or is there something else we can do to fix it?

... True TSSU-72-8 Commercial Refrigerator

When it turns on, it makes a rapid, loud clicking sound for up to about 5 seconds (sometimes just one). Seems related to the compressor activating since the compressor sometimes does not go on, no click, and no cooling, so the fans just keeps running. Then I have to unplug so fan stops and let it sit for many hours, sometimes 24, then replug and the clicking starts and it cools again. What's the problem?

Doesn't cool. Compressor and fans working. Low on refrigerant-accessed the refrigeration system, and put R134 gauges on access valve and we are reading zero pounds of pressure. Should we consider a new refrigeration unit because leak is not obvious and not completely empty? Very difficult to find the leak. If we need a new unit, how can we get it?

Model TSSU-48-08 Sandwich/salad prep table. I think it is a 1998 unit, so it has some age but is in nice shape, like new. I need to get it working. Doesn't cool. Compressor motor, evaporator fan motor, and condenser fan motor, all seem to be working, OK. Perimeter heater OK. Condenser coils do not get hot or even warm. What's my problem? Do I need to recharge the refridgerant? Do I need the unit tested for leaks? Please help if you can. Thanks!!

Have a 2 -year old Franklin 2 zone FBC360D wine fridge and I believe the starter or capacitor relay are not working. Is it really obvious when compressor starts up? The fan next to it runs as do the two fans on the evaporators. My compressor only has two prongs, not three. Can I check the above parts or should I just replace them. If the unit did not have adequate spacing could heat have had an effect on the fridge? It has a front vent but the sides and top are a bit tight. Any idea wher

Servis M0331BLK-2 Frost Free Fridge Freezer Hi, we had a power out last week, just a brief on and now our FF keeps getting warm in the fridge. I tried a full defrost, took the shelves out left the door open for 12 hours, checked to make sure the drain was clear onto the compressor. When I turn the FF on, the compressor starts, but the fan only works sporadically, when it does work it's fine and it hasn't done this for a week now, but even after full defrost again the fan won;t go this time

Refrigerator admiral compressor is new, but some times the low side Line refrigeration start to make ice , I add more refrigerant thinking that is becouse of low in freon , and the ice disapeer , but when the unit stop after the cicle finished , when start again compressor soud like is too much freon(loud noice) it disapeer after 2 minutes or so , in some time comeback again .

Frost on the low side line means the system is overcharged (too much freon).  Look on the tag insided the fridge and it will tell you how much freon it holds.  Usually 4.25-5.50 ounces on average.  The loud noise sounds like yo ... Refrigerators

I have a Beverage Air MT 27 and t isn't cooling. Sounds like the compressor ties to kick on but then doesn't. There is a click each time it tries to go on then clicks off. Almost as if there is a charge or signal being sent to the compressor but doesn't fully turn on the compressor. The fan and motor still run fine. There have been a couple times when the compressor starts for a second or two and then has tripped the gfci outlet it plugged into and then the whole unit shuts down. Any ideas?

Inglis Refridgerator Hello I have a new fridge that is 3 mos. old. Since it's arrival I have been dealing noise issues. The fan is TOO loud and runs for ever. I just put groceries in the fridge at 2:30pm and the fan has still not shut off. I had the same problem yesterday. The fan started at 3pm and stopped at 7:30pm. Is this normal? The noise just gives me total grief. Can I open the back of the freezer and remove the fan? Thank you. Linda.
