Look at the size of the drier holes. Just to mention driers always go on the discharge side, normally just after the radiator. Any driers normally found on the suction side are actually" burn out driers". Applicable to large cooling systems..
It is a suction side dryer. Dryers never go on high side, there are exceptions but only in commeral amonia systems. Be sure you got the right compressor, It won't hurt anything having a dryer it's just addes labor to install but makes a better job it it is there, it could be an update because that refrigerator has had a problem, but double check the compressor number with the old one.

JUST RECIEVED A NEW COMPRESSOR FOR A REFRIGERATOR mod#MTB2176HR. Along with the compressor came a dryer. The packing list does not mention weather its a discharge or suction side dryer. Do you have any idea. The old compressor does not have a dryer on it.

I have a GE GSS25JEMD-BB side by side refrigerator that I need to move but will have to lay it down on it's side. I understand that if I lay it down that it would be best if I do so in which the compressors discharge and return lines are pointing up so the oil will not leak out. I have read that it is ok for the process tube is ok to be pointing down. Does anyone know which way the discharge and return lines point? And so I will know which way to lay it down. I only have to move it a fairly s

The dryer? fan was replaced for the second time in 3 years just 6 months ago as was, the thermostat board inside the refrigerator. I do not hear compressor starting.

My refrigarator is not getting cold on the fresh food side. The freezer works fine so the compressor is good. Is there a fan for the FF side and if so where is it? There is a trap door at the top which is open. It seems there shoulod be a fan on the FF side to either blow cold air or create a suction to draw the cold air from the freezer side. I changed the thermostat but that didn't fix it. Can you help please? Thanks, Mike

Freezer works but the refrigerator portion got so hot it melted the butter inside and spoiled everything.

Freezer seems to work fine. Not sure
The temperature setting in the fridge section of your refrigerator is generated by diverting a part of the cold air generated in the freezer. This is done with the help of a fan and is controlled with a thermistor. If the temperature doesn't drop l ...

My SUB-ZERO refrigerator/freezer Model 361RFD Serial P461925 installed 1984 , seems to be running almost continually. The temp on the condenser side of the upper compartment is around 80 degrees f, and the temp on the discharge near the compressor is about 100 degrees f. I am considering running an outside air duct to the condenser side of this compartment. Will this do any good? Is this an option? This unit is completely built in to my kitchen cabinets, and this problem was evident from the ins

It is behind the rear cover in the freezer section, you need to remove the freezer shelfs and bins, you will see the screws on the back panel (remove frost from panel) remove the screws and the heater will be a black element that is mounted on the ...

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model number 253 76172610 With in Embraco compressor model number E G270HLP Which is rated at 10 LRA. It draws 14 A on start then clicks off after five seconds. The capacitor is a 15 ohm which is okay I checked with my meter.
I think the compressor is okay because it is pumping discharge line gets hot suction a line gets cool.

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 ...

My Frigidaire side by side compressor comes on for a few seconds and then goes off, fridge is approx. 6 years old. I have problems with ice being hollow at times as well but replacing filter fixes that. What can I test to see what the problem is with the compressor. I found some forums talking about a white box on the side of the compressor, I have a black two pronged thing on the side of mine.

I have a whirlpool side by side model number ED20PKXANOL. I have a clicking noise on side of the compressor which won't click on, the refrigerator is cool but not cold and the freezer is about the same. The compressor itself is not hot as if to have gone out but the side of compressor there is a clicking noise and a spark going off. Any thoughts?

I have a KitchenAid side by side Model KSRD25F. Both sides have gone warm and the compressor doesn't seem to be starting. The fan in the freezer is running as well as the fan underneath by the compressor. There was alot of dust buildup on the condensor which I removed. I can here a click on the starting device but compressor doesn't start. Removed the starting device from the compressor and it rattles inside when you shake it. Can this device be the problem?

Whirlpool side by side, model no. gd5yha. Both sides are not cooling. I placed a thermostat in the freezer, it stays at about 55 deg. The compressor does come on and runs from 10 to 30 seconds and then cuts off. The coils are clean and all the fans work. The coils do seem to get cool when compressor is on but the compressor doesn't stay on long enough. Any idea what the problem is.

Whirlpool 25.4 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/Thru-the-Door Ice & Water - Satina Stainless-Look
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 ...
Hi, I have a whirlpool side by side refrigerator that will not cool. The light comes on and the fan blows but it will not cool. I tested the compressor relay and it looks to be good. Both the refrigerator and freezer sides will not cool. Therefore I felt that the compressor might be the problem. Is there a good way to check to be sure that the compressor is definitely bad? Or am I looking at the wrong thing in order to find out what the problem is. Thanks Ron
Unplug the Ref for 15-20 min, plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start running. You will have to be behind the Ref so you can tell if it's the condensor fan or the compressor running.\015\012\015\012Not running, replace the ...
I have a tecumsee compressor for a cold tray Mod # aea2410yxa. Its showing 60 psi on the high and low side. It tries to run for about 10 sec. the kicks out. the power keeps the cond. fan running and it has 120 to the common side of the compressor but shows nothing on the run or start sides. i replaced the relay and the overload, could the compressor be bad?
The compressor is kicking the thermal overload for some reason. Look on the compressor label. There is an LRA number there which is for "locked rotor amperage." 1 1/4 hp compressor for example has an LRA of 13.7 up to 16.9 amps depending on manufa ...

having seeked advice from refridgeration engineer was told compressor was not working, had a new compressor fitted by another engineer but still existing problem remained, that is a clicking sound when compressor trys to start. having called out original engineer diagnosed faulty compressor again. As this seems unlikely to me and engineer that fitted the compressor, i would like a secondary opinion.
Did they change the start relay as well as the compressor? On Samsung refers the start relays do not come with the compressor. If they didn't its possible that the start relay is clicking. ...
