Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Gdm-87 fan makes noises at times and won't start. I can get it going and fridge cools fine but once fan shuts off during cycle it won't start back on its own and compressor shuts itself down.


Answers :

Sounds like the fan is dirty and needs removal,while it is out of the unit clean out all the condenser coil area and upon replacing the fan unit,also replace the overload ptc relay on the compressor body in the lower rear area as this is weak too and part of your problems too

Checked unit found ref indicator light on steady found some what dirty filter. cleaned filter restarted unit water pump came on then compressor started but only ran for about 2 min then tripped out. condenser fan ran for a bit then shut off. After a bit the fan came back on but no compressor. Finally when the compressor tried to start the over load just tripped on compressor. I'm thinking compressor is either getting to much back pressure or is tripping out on over load,tight compressor any thau

Refridge would cycle on, fan would come on relay would click but no compressor. relay kept clicking no compressor. I changed relay and capacitor on compressor plugged in all went well. after a few hours temps came down made ice fine fridge temp good. when it cycled off it cycled back on after awhile. Fan came on relay clicked but no compressor. Same problem. On a hunch I unplugged power line plugged back in and fan and compressor came on as they should Help would be appreciated. Frank.


You were lucky . compressor must run with fan or it will get too hot . if comp is running to hot it will not come on and the fan will . . do you have the cardboard back on frig . this helps direct air to cool comp .. reck ...

Noticed a sound from my Kenmore 106.41512101 refrigerator. It was a buzzing sound that lasted about 12 seconds and then shut off for 2 minutes or so and then start buzzing again. This was an endless cycle. Aslo discovered the fridge and freezer temps were rising. I then pulled out the fridge from the wall and removed the lower cover. Discovered the sound was coming from the compressor area. The compressor was also very hot. The fan was also constantly running. I thought there may have been a ba

I have a Kitchen Aid side by side , model # KSRD22FTST03. The fan in the freezer compartment runs all the time and I noticed frost build up on the back panel and in particular in the vent at the bottom of the freezer. Also, the water filter light blinks green all the time. So far the temps are good in both the freezer and fridge boxes. I also started noticing a loud rumbling sound sometimes just before the compressor shuts off. Maybe for 10-15 seconds. Thanks for your help

I have a may tag MBB 2254 G /2256 G refrigerator. The machine was not cooling, pulled the back and front panels and vacuumed out, full of dust, lint etc. I plugged back in, let go for a hour or so, a little cooling but not much. The compressor seemed fairly hot. I could hear the relay cycling I assume to kick the compressor. After several seconds hear another relay click. I do not feel any coldness on the compressor copper lines. The back fan is running, the interior fan is circulating.

Yesterday I came home and noticed my ice in the ice maker was melting. I pulled the back panel off and found the fan blade that cools the condensor was off so I put it back on. Today I get home and the frig/freezer is still not working. I hear the compressor trying to start, but after roughly 10 seconds it "clicks" and goes back on standby for a period of time and then trys to start again. Is it possibble it could be the capacitor or whatever it is called on the side of the compressor, or is it

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.

The compressor will not stay on. Will not stay cold. Every few minutes you hear a click and the compressor will kick on but about 6 seconds later it clicks again and shuts off. The fan continuously runs. We Cleaned all dust and coils. Nothing is hot in the back(coils,compressor etc) and there is no condensation back there either. Do you think this a bad relay switch or something more serious like the compressor needing replacement. Thanks

I have a GE refrigerator (model # GSH25SGRESS). The problem happens when the compressor needs to kick back on I hear a clicking noise from the main control panel but the compressor doesn’t start up. It seems that when I activate the water dispenser the compressor will start up again. I also noticed that both the water and ice dispenser do not always work and when they don’t, I try again later and they will usually work.

My fridge clicking, buzzing and then clicking back off. Inside it was starting to warm up and was starting to leak water onto the floor. Today someone came out and replaced the relay. After 4 hours the freezer is down to 30 degrees but the refrigerated section is only 58 degrees. It does not sound like the fans are functioning and there is frost starting to accumulate on the back panel of the freezer. My fridge is an 8 year old Maytag. Is the compressor bad or is it something else?
