At times my frigidare plhs268zcb1 compressor is working at times it not. I had a repair man at the hous who thinks the compressor is gone. If its gone why would it eventually come back on and start frezzing again. Is it shot and should i even put a new compressor in or could it be something else? Thanks


I would suspect the compressor starter/overload relay first. http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php ... Frigidaire PLHS269ZC Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Maytag french door/bottom freezer refridgerator. The electric in my house went out a few weeks ago. That was repaired and I was told that the neutral wire to my house had gone out. That was fixed. Now my freezer works, but the fridge does not. I HAVE replaced the evaporator fan! Help

-My Maytag RSW22A side by side Refer/Freezer stopped making ice. The water still works, the tines still turn every hour or so as if there were cubes there but the tray no longer fills up with water. Just prior to this happening, we had to shut off the water to the house for a day for some repairs. Is there some kind of priming I have to do to get the water flowing into the ice maker again? Could a valve to the icemaker be bad even though the valve to the water dispenser still works? Thanks.


Hi, I am wondering if when you had the water turned of the fill tube may have frozen over. Try switching the unit of for an hour and see if the water returns to the icemaker.regardsGraeme ... Refrigerators

Our Whirlpool side by side also makes a thumping sound. I have had repair people at the house 5 times with only one finding a possible solution and that solution was to reposition a dryer by the fill valve that was replaced just before the noise started. Could the dryer be bad and need to be replace? Both the freeze and refrigerator work fine.

Hi, I have a side by side S20D RBB32-A/G Fridge Freezer with ice and water dispenser. The frezeer and fridge stopped working. I called a local repairer who took away a part for repair. However, the fridge and freezer are now working but the ice and water dispensers are not. I have turned off the power supply and emptied out the filter, this seemed to start the water going but only for 2 pints of water and then it stopped working. Could this be due to a blocked filter? Or is it something else? An

About 5 days ago I noticed a strong chemical smell (like open permanent markers or nail polish remover) in my kitchen. The smell permiates the whole house, but is strongest in the kitchen area when I close off that area. The refrigerator and freezer still worked and the smell is not inside. I could not find any other source of smell. I have since moved the refrigerator out of the main house and the smell still exists in the kitchen. Could it be that if the coolant leaked onto the floor it has be


No. The coolant cannot leak as a liquid and soak into the floor. Also, the smell of the coolant (refrigerant) does not have the acetone/ketone/laquer thinner smell that you are describing, and if someway the smell originated from the frig, the smell ...

I have a GSS22JEPA WW fridge in my rental. I have had a repair guy come to the house several times and $800 later, the fridge still does not work. He replaced the compressor, the control board, then he found that the damper door was not opening. I replaced this part myself. There is no real troubleshooting going on, just a repair guy throwing parts at my fridge. After replacing the damper door, I can manually open the door but it will automatically close.

I have a rm3862 ,with a two way control board [2932881.01].Can this be converted to a 3 way to run on 12.V D.C.?

Hi, have a magic chef MCWC16MCG. I plugged it in to a a receptical and it wasn't working. Due to limited space I used an extension cord and a 3 prong adaptor (live and learn) so I could get it to a working recepticle. Worked fine for some time, then stopped working. So I got another magic chef wine fridge MCWC52B, and plugged it in the same way. It just failed on me also. So, I believe it's an electrical surge issue because whenever it would turn on, I would hear a loud click that seemed t

I have a LG LFX25960ST and the water line started leaking so when the ice maker called for water it sprayed the wall instead. Repair guy came out and spliced line but that didn't work. Water now sprays from a different location on the water line. Seems pressure makes it impossible to repair the supply line? Can we replace the entire water line from inside frig to water supply at wall? Last repair guy said it was VERY expensive if it could be done at all? Ugh

The icemaker in the door of our Kenmore Elite Trio frig just stopped working, exactly 13 mos. after we bought it. We did not get an extended warrantee, because we have never had a new appliance fail so soon. The bottom freezer works fine, and the water dispenser in the door also works. What could be the problem? We can't really afford to repair it now.

Hi,\015\012\015\012Yes you are right. It tends to be the problem of the valve. Connection is not proper it is not allowing water to ice maker. The valve can be checked with a \015\012volt/ohm meter if you. Have access to one and are ... LG LRSC-26922 Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Maytag MTF2455ER refrigerator and its not working right. The freezer has frost on the back wall (blocking bottom vents), from the bottom about half way up, but otherwise works fine. The refrigerator section is at 56 degrees and my food is going bad rapidly. I'd like some help in debugging and repairing this. What I've read so far points to the defrost timer or defrost heater. Do you agree? How do I get at these (or other parts) for testing? Thanks,
