Hotpoint HTM17BBSSA Top Freezer Refrigerator
The fridge is a side by side Kitchen Aid that is about 10 years old. It suddenly stopped cooling, first the freezer side then the fridge side.
I pulled the unit away from the wall and removed the lower panel, the fan was running and the compressor was very warm to the touch but didn't appear to be running. I unplugged the unit and it was off for about 12 hours. Before I plugged
it back in I checked the compressor and it was no longer warm at all. I notice that the blower fan runs continuosly a

I have an Electrolux Fridge Freezer Model Number ER2940B, which is probably about 12 years old. The fridge no longer keeps things cool enough although the temperature control in the fridge has been set to the coolest setting. Is it likely that the thermostat is faulty and needs replaced? Can a theromstat usually be fitted by someone with very limited technical knowledge/practical skills (like myself) or am I likely to need to call a tradesman in? I'm wondering whether it's worth the time and tr
Bosch Fridge Freezer KGV2604G (9 years old) , compressor does not kick when Fridge warms up. Fridge has to be turned off, left for a while, then truned on before the compressor starts to work and cool the fridge to the required temperature.

Our Kenmore Elite Side by Side refrigerator stopped cooling. I replaced the start relay device like suggested (it rattled). I put on the new one (no rattle) and the compressor still would not start. Just the clicking noise occasionly like before. If the compressor is locked up can I hit it with a rubber mallett to unstick it and order a new relay. Or should I just give up? If I need to replace the compressor that is more than I am willing to shell out. The fridge is only 7 years old.
On occasion your compressor windings can be damaged from the starting components going bad. Or like you said the comp is locked up which in turn damaged the starting components from them continually trying to start the compressor. Either way it sound ...
Kenmore 73503 Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have a Kenmore model 253, and the refrigerator section stopped working yesterday but the freezer was fine. I de-dusted the back, and when I checked the compressor was hot to the touch.
At a paid site an online tech told me the compressor was broken and had to be replaced (a $200-400 fix on a 6 year old $350 fridge).
When I checked it this morning the compressor was just warm to the touch, and the fridge was cool, but not up to the correct temperature.
I'm not sure if it's related,
Hello,Sounds like you have a defrost problem since the freezer side is working okay . It probably is not blowing cold air into the refrigerator side , so to check the defrost circuit , unplug the refrigerator and inside the refrigerator s ...
Fridge stopped working yesterday (no cooling); its 7.5 year old; I cleaned underneath and behind fridge and this did not work. Have a service appt with Sears for Monday. Like to know what might be the issue - compressor, temp valves, etc. and what it might cost me. Have option to get 1 yr warranty for $250 but what if it costs less to repair and repairs lasts more than one year? I recorded the buzzing noise that ends with a click after about 15 sec, and this occurs every 2 min 30 seconds.

Kenmore 62232 / 62234 / 62239 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have a knocking (5 quick, loud knocks) sound intermittently on my refrigerator. I think it is when the compressor starts up (not 100% sure). I opened the back panel and everything looked normal except there is some black, sticky tar-like substance on the side of the compressor, as if something is melting. It is on the outside of the compressor casing, but not dripping onto the floor panel. The fridge is a 4.5 year old Samsung side-by-side. The noise is loud enough to wake us up at night. Do we
Chances are that black tar like substance you are seeing if from the capacitor. This is were I would start, as a capacitor is not all that expensive. Make sure it is the same rating as the current capacitor, and be aware that capacitors store elect ...
I have a leibherr fridge freezer 24" with a bottom freezer compartment. About 8 years old never a problem. Seperate compressor for fridge and freezer.
Today alarm sounded and freezer is gradually getting warmer (-9c). Cooling fins are warm on fridge side but room temp on freezer side except at the bottom.
The uneven cooling on the cooling fins (evaporator coil) is a sign of the system being low on freon. It will be cooler the closer it is to the compressor. This requires a qualified tech to detect the leak fix the leak and recharge the system. Since y ...

My Kenmore fridge, Model 596-58692890 is not cooling and I've lost use of the water/ice dispenser. The motor and compressor seem to be working but the cool air is not blowing. What part might need to be replaced? Thank you.

Our Sub-Zero is a 532. It is I believe about 23 years old. It came with the house. First the refrigerator was not cooling/working properly, & the technician who came out cleaned the coils. Then, 10 days later, our freezer goes out, and we get a new compressor. Now, we're back to the fridge not cooling properly and ice building up, and the technician says that now needs a new compressor and evaporator coil...and now the freezer, which was just "fixed", keeps warming up and is not staying at freez
Hi the simple answer is no, From what you are describing the tech that came out was an *** and should be working at a car wash not messing around with refridgerators...your problem is with the defrost system..Im going to give you directions on what t ...

I have model number ARB1914CB, 4 years old and the fridge part has pretty much just stopped working. Tiny bit of cool air coming in from the back vent but the "running" noise of the fridge is no longer there or is very faint. Compressor? Warm milk. But the freezer seems to be OK. Popsicles have not thawed. Makes no sense.

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?
Hello, no if the compressor is still running and you are not hearing the click you should be ok. It will take approx 8-10 hours for it to get to normal temp. The frost you mention on the freezer panel could be a problem with the defrost system. I wou ...
Yesterday started hearing a buzzing sound from the fridge. Came home today with a pool of water in the kitchen coming from the fridge. Opened the freezer, ice is melted and inside is relatively warm. Fridge side is still cool but warm. Moved fridge from wall and and did not take the back off. Buzzing sounds like the compressor turning on. ( example..Sounds like the buzzer on a clothes dryer heard from another room as the cycle ends.)No clicking, just buzzing. Bad Compressor?
I would check for a bad starter relay first unless you can verify that the sound is comming from the compressor. How to check stuff>\015\012\015\012http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php ...

Hi My samsung double door fridge with Model No RS26FANS, has a problem, it doesn't cool like it is suppose to the freezer says -16 and when you put it to -25 it goes back to -16 and the fridge temperature said 1. So I am not sure if it is the pc board, because the fridge is still cooling but not like it is suppose to and not freezing like it is suppose to, or does it need gas or something. This fridge is about 4 years old.

I have a 19-year-old Kenmore top freezer refrigerator (model #1069610513). The freezer seems fine, but the fridge is warm. It was fine last night but when I opened it this morning the milk felt like room temperature and items were covered in condensation. I changed the setting to the coldest one, and let it closed up for a few more hours, but it is just barely cooling (butter doesn't even firm up).
You might be developing an ice dam in the bottom tray of thr freezer that is obstucting the flow of cold air to the refigerater part of the unit. remove frozen items so you can see the bottom tray and see if you notice an exccesive amount of frosting ...

I have a maytag side-by-side refridgerator. 5.5years old. model number MSD2651HEB. compressor failed two years ago and was replaced then. now, wife said strange noice came from back of fridge side a couple days before fridge stopped cooling. noticed a layer of ice had built up on the bottom of the fridge side at the same time. no compressor cycling at all, now, even when you move the thermostat up. what is the deal with maytag appliances? i have had issues with EVERY one i own. thanks
Problem with Maytag is they were bought out by Whirlpool who say those are not are problems.Go figure. Anyhow call for service you should be covered with warranty on new compressor. ...
Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator
3 year old VUAR141 cools but only gets down to 16C at coldest setting(spec is 4 to 14 C)Compressor and cooling fan only run for approx 3 minutes then shut off for 20 minutes or more before restarting. Evaporator plate is below 0 C when compressor is running. Good air flow over condenser. Seems like thermostat is out of range. Is it most likely to be: Potentiometer, Thermister, or control box? Does control box limit compressor run time, if so what is limit run time?
Those symptoms you describe indicate a compressor that is "short cycling", if it is indeed starting and running for those 3 minutes. Is the evaporator cold for those three minutes as well? Many times people think its running, then shutting off, when ...

I have a Haier refrigerator, 4.6 cu ft model HNSEO5SS in the basement apartment that i rent. My renter says she left town and left the refrigerator door open for several days. When she returned the refrigerator or freezer would no longer cool. It apparently has been like this for more than a month. I just looked at it. The compressor is making a humming sound like one might expect. The compressor was hot so I unplugged to let cool down. The refrigerator is approx. two years old. Is the c

My mother's fridge is getting warm inside. The freezer part is working as she can hear the fan. She says the condenser coil is very warm at the top, and gets hotter down near the bottom of the fridge. It is a Fridgidaire 16.5 CF 3-year old fridge. Very ordinary. She had already tried unplugging it for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. The light is on in the fridge and she can hear the fan in the freezer, but the main fridge is still not cooling. Our questions: Is the condenser coil getting too
