Cooling problem the fans are spinning, and the compressor at the bottem are running. the dial switch works (I think) because when I turn it to the "off" the fans turn off. We had a power outage last night. And this morning the fridge wasn't cooling. Maybe a power surge had something to do with it?

Refrigerator stopped cooling. Compressor not turning on...No clicking or switch noises heard when attempting to actuate thermostat control- Fan does turn on and run when controlled by thermostat. Can also control fan by actuating pot in defrost timer. Do not hear "any" switch noise at compressor relay - even when attempting to control by actuating thermostat or defrost timer. There was no warning when fridge stopped cooling - no compressor noise or other odd sounds.


First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermosta ... Refrigerators

I am having cooling problems on my Viking VCBB360. The evaporator fan doesn't seem to be running. The light in the freezer is not going out when the door is closed, and I wasn't sure if the evaporator fan was tied in to the freezer door switch. I removed the switch from the back of the freezer and bridged the connectors, but the light remained on. Now I'm not sure why the light remains on even after bridging the switch. Does this mean it is a control board problem? I was thinking it was the

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.

Found the unit circulator fan running but not cool in the freezer or fresh food compartment. I unplugged and replugged and the compressor started running shortly. I checked the frost-free feature already (clicked the light switch in the fresh food compartment 5 times in 6 seconds). I took the cover off the back of the cabinet and the compressor is now hot, but not too hot to touch. The unit is just not cooling off very quickly. I know the compressor is only 1.1 to 1.6 amps and that's not much. I

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?

Not cooling.... Ok, my Sanyo 4911M is not cooling. The compressor is running, the light comes on when you open the door. I cannot find any fans on this model, either on the coils or compressor. I also have not been able to find a defrost switch or anything like that either. Any ideas?? Thanks.


Sounds like you checked for the proper items, fans to move cold air, etc. and if stuck in defrost mode. If the compressor is running you would have to be cooling unless... the refrigerant has leaked out. And that is basically a bad thing.\015\012If i ... Sanyo SR-4911M Compact Refrigerator

Is the condenser fan supposed to run continually? My Amana top freezer isn't cooling right and if I nudge the fan it will start spinning. Is there a control switch for the motor?


To answer your first question no it is not suppose to run all the time. There is a relay that control the motor that is bad and you will need to replace it. The reason you can bump it and it works is because you are shacking loose the items inside th ... Refrigerators

The refrigerator is still running and cooling, however, not quite as cool as before. It is an circulating air cooled refrigerator so something is wrong with the fan, fan motor, etc. I've had the refrigerator about 5 years. It is all European specs so I'm running it off a 2000 watt transformer. It has been operating this way for about 1

Have a KitchenAid Superba side by side with ice maker. (Don't know year or model number, came with the house we bought two years ago.) We took off the back panel to vaccuum coils and wipe out drip pan (there was a terrible smell). Smell is all gone, but now entire unit will not cool. Everything seems to be running: fan blowing (room temp air). What might we have done in cleaning to cause this? And what can we do to fix it? Thank you.

It takes maybe 8-10 hrs. we have to take all the remaining ice out from the ice basket and then it turns on. please advice


I'm guessing that ice is obstructing the spinning blade, you might try running it at a more moderate temp first and be sure your door seal is secure and closing completely, its also likely if ice is obstructing that it has over heated the fan several ... Refrigerators

Hello Good People, As of Sauterday my LG stopp cooling. The black compresser gets hot.

Then about 30+ sec late I hear another click. I checked my starter switch and it looks good. Want do you think. Could it need Holy Water?....LOL
