Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Mini Danby Fridge Won't cool but compresser is running very HOT!

\015 (Model DCR412BLS) the fridge has just recently been moved into a warmer environment without air conditioning. As well, it had accumulated quite a bit of built up ice which has been removed (because i unplugged the fridge to let it drain). I thought that may solve the problem, however now it seems that the freezer area (at the top) is cooling, while the temperature in the rest of the fridge is unchanged. My concern is with what I believe is called the compresser, which is running very hot after just minutes of the unit being plugged in. I read that it may be a gas leak but I'm still not sure. Thanks in advance.\015

The mini fridge does not cool. This fridge doesnt use any fans so nothing to check there. The compressor seems to be awfully hot (although I dont know if thats normal) you wont born your hand but it would be fairly unpleasant to keep touching it. none of the tubes are cool to the touch. everything seems to be warm. Do i need to add new refrigerant and if so can I do it my self - i.e. can I buy the container and fill it up?

I have a Kenmoore side by side cold shot fridge.It is only cooling on bottom of fridge and freezer.I have already cleaned evap coils, there is frost forming in back of freezer.I defrosted that as well last night and really noimprovement. I checked compresser and is hot but able to touch.Fan running as well at bottom.Any chance that it is pressure switch at top of fridge.Also fridge would never allow to adjust temp lower than #3-#4


No it is not pressure switch. You are having a defrost problem. The frost on the back walls is also all through the coils behind the wall you defrosted. You have to remove the panel and defrost all of the ice from the coils so that air can flow throu ... Kenmore Refrigerators

KitchenAid model no. KSRS22FGBL03 Fridge is not cooling; freezer side is ok. No cold air being blown into fridge from top or vent in about the middle of the demising wall between freezer and fridge; even when cold air IS being blown into freezer. Compressor seems hot when running and freezer is cooling; even with an external small fan blowing on it to help it out. Normal cooling fan adjacent to compressor is running. Coils are dust free for the most part. Any ideas?


Hi u didnt rate for my chat? ... Refrigerators

My Whirlpool ARC7472 fridge freezer has stopped cooling both feezer and fridge. Removal of the cover in the freezer shows no ice build up, the fan runs, but no cooling effect in the chiller pipework to the evaporator. There appears to be liquid running through the piping as you can hear it 'gurgling'in the freezer - the compressor seems to be running hard and hot. Is this the thermostat faulty, or lack of refridgerant? How do I check for refridgerant loss? Thanks for any help you can give.

Have thermostat set to 46 degrees, display shows fridge is only cooling to 56 degrees. Fans are running. Pulled fridge away from wall. Compressor is hot to the touch. Nothing leaking. Door to fridge was left open the other night, so was probably running all night trying to cool. Could this have damaged the compressor? Any ideas for ways to fix it myself, or guidance on whether it will need service, would be appreciated. Thanks.

NOT OPERATING... I now use this fridge as a garage/beer fridge. The power was lost for a few hours and now it won't cool. I have checked the fan, running. I have checked the compressor, don't know if it is running but it is hot. I even called Whirlpool. They told me to they would send out a Service Tech, they would cover parts, but not labor. When I asked about the labor charges they told me to call the Service Tech. The air blowing out of the vents is cool but nowhere near cold. Help me please.

I punctured a hole in the underside freezer "cooling shelve" of my mini fridge, while trying to break up the ice. It made a hissing sound due to the freon leaking out, but i taped it up w/ electrical tape, and i don't feel any air flow anymore. Is there a way to refill the freon so it will cool again? And if not, will it just be the freezer part of my mini fridge that wont work?????

Mini fridge not getting cold? Basically there's not a 1-10 just a hot, cold and off switch it plugs in fine, the heat works perfect but the cold doesn't, it just stays at 75 degrees or well room temperature.

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.
