Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My GE Profile side by side is not cooling or freezing (refrigerator and freezer). I took the back lower cover off and cleaned, etc. The fan still runs, the compresser (metal thing next to fan) is not hot. I'm guessing the compresser isn't working but would like to save a service call if there's a way to know for sure. The temperature has now gone all the way to the highest and turned off on both sides. When I turn on to cool you hear a slight change in sound but then nothing.

Answers :


Regarding ' No Cooling and Freezing Problem ', Read the below guide :-


Regarding Testing Compressor, you need to have Tools Like Multimeter. The way to Check it is :-


Another Symptoms could be, it may give you Buzzing or Crackling Noise and the when you touch Compressor ( You should be Careful ), it would be so hot that you could even lay eggs on it .The Refrigerator may Turn On and OFF as well.

These are the same symptoms even for Refrigerator Compressor Relay.

Note - Most of the the Brands would have 5 Years Warranty for Compressor.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a Kenmore/Frigidaire side-by-side that shut itself off while I was gone for a few days. When I returned the frozen food and ice had melted and food in the refrigerator was at about 50 degrees. I could not get it to restart even by setting the temperature to coldest in both sections. I left it that way and went to bed. When I awoke, the compressor and fan were audible. The unit seems to be fully operational again. What could cause this?

Hi, I have a whirlpool side by side refrigerator that will not cool. The light comes on and the fan blows but it will not cool. I tested the compressor relay and it looks to be good. Both the refrigerator and freezer sides will not cool. Therefore I felt that the compressor might be the problem. Is there a good way to check to be sure that the compressor is definitely bad? Or am I looking at the wrong thing in order to find out what the problem is. Thanks Ron

The cooling side is not cooling. But when I take it a part I can feel the cold air coming out of the condenser, and the evaporator fan is not running, therefore I am assuming the fan is not working.
