I have to turn the thermostat to off, then turn it back on and it will start cooling. The compressor is hot to the touch, there is no dirt to speak of. Any ideas?

I have an Amana side by side refridgerator. The fridge side is not cooling, the freezer side is still a little cold but not cold enough. I see frost in the back of the freezer at the vents, but no air flowing. It seems that the fan is not blowing air at all. The compressor seems to be fine, the evaporator fan is running in the back and the thermostat switches seem to be working (when I turn it off, it turns off the evaporator fan in the back). Any ideas?

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?

3 year old Frigidaire just quit cooling. Temperature controls are set properly. Gaskets are good. No ice is built up. Both fans are operating. Coils were cleaned a couple months ago and are still very clean. Refrigerator is level. Compressor shuts off when thermostat is turned off and comes on when when turned back up. No strange noises or smells. Just the fact that it does not produce cold.


Hi, the most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost, this frost will block the evaporat ... Refrigerators

After shutting off the refrigerator for cleaning, it doesn't turn on. I think interior lights work, but the refrigerator compressor doesn't seem to engage. When the thermostat switch is turned from the off position to the on, it makes the usual clicking sound. I unplugged for about 5 minutes and plugged it back into the wall but to no avail. Any ideas? Your help is appreciated.

Wont cool I have a 2000 Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator that I unplugged in May. I just plugged in back in (August) and it is not cooling. It worked great prior to me shutting it down. Would anyone be able to give me an idea what maybe wrong? The compressor sounds like it's working and getting slightly warm - not hot. Did it loose refrigerant?

I have a Neff FD7806 fridge (under built worktop) that has been working fantastically for 10 years. Today it is hot inside on the "roof" plastic inside. This has heated food stored above. Lower shelves were not so bad. I have emptied the fridge and turning the control has caused the compressor to start working and there is some cooling on the back wall. There is still a "hot" smell in the fridge. Any ideas??

The compressor runs and freezer is cold, however the refrigerator side isn't cooling well. Doesn't feel like any air is blowing in the fridge, only the freezer. I tried turning off/resetting the system and turned it back on and the compressor and fan starts up again fine. I can hear the actuator for the vent louver in the fridge moving when I turn it back on, but still no air comes out.

Hi Side by side refrigerator not cooling down. Freezer seems to be not freezing. refrigerator compressor is running. Freezer damper wide open on a setting, refrigerator turned up to 10, running but not cooling.

I don't know if it's the heaters or something else? I opened the back where the cooling coils are, and it was solid

I have been using Wirlpool ARC 4020/1 IX for two years. Recently the following problem started to occur at random times: it turns on normally and in a minute it starts beating. The noise, coming from the compressor, is regular and keeps that way on up to 1 hour. At that, the compressor is warming up and gets hot at the end of session, while the heat exchange grid on the back is cool. At last, its turns off and turns on in normal mode at due time. Because it happans at random, I cannot show an
