Ge 2009 side by side model gsh not cooling, service guys says compressor bad. Has ther been many issue out there for this problem?
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 ...
We are dealing with an insurance claim for a lady who has an Amana automatic refrigerator 25 (purchased many years ago) which is leaking water from the water dispenser. Do you have any ideas of what the problem could be or questions we could ask to identify the issue?
In addition is there an Amana repairer in the UK (London area) who might be able to visit and assess the problem?

If the water valve is bad this can happen,the valve has something in it or the valve just isn't fully closing all the way letting the water flow through even though it should be closed,this could be from old pipes in the house,from the water or the v ...
Warm refrigerator I am having issues with my Maytag MSD2756GES. The freezer compartment only gets to about 40 degrees F and the refrigerator section is about 80 degrees F. I had a young service technician come over to replace a recalled relay for the compressor (the problem occurred prior to all of this). I was hoping that would fix the problem, but it did not. He thought it may be my compressor; however, he didn't really do any troubleshooting to come to that expensive conclusion. before i go s
I had the same problem with my msd2756ae. We had been using the blow dryer, removing the rear panel in the freezer section, etc. \015\012\015\012We replaced the adaptive defrost control board. Solved our problem. It's an easy ...

Samsung side by side fridge freezer sr-s2028css.
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. ...
Not cooling My Uline 1175BEV is not cooling. I do not know how long is was unit was operating without it working property. The coils were dirty.The compressor was very hot. I cleaned the coils and allowed the compressor to cool but it is still not cooling. I know many refridgerators have an Overload Relay which will burn up before the compressor goes bad. Any way to do a test to verify that its just the Overloan Replay? or verify the compressor is still good?
You can ohm the compressor to see if it is shorted but if the compressor is running it cannot be the overload or relay , if not running sometimes you can pull the relay and shake it if you hear any rattling in it it is bad ...

To cool the compressor?? I do not have a problem, this is just a general discussion question I'm throwing out there. Every fridge I've ever owned, the compressor gets very warm/hot after running. I have a small 2cf fridge in the basement, I put a small personal fan in the back blowing right on the compressor. Now it no longer gets warm/hot, it stays right about room temp. Here's the question: Is this a good thing or a bad thing. I'm thinking that a cooler compressor will last longer than one tha
Some compressors are designed to be externally cooled some are not.\015\012They have to process the refrigerant to certain pressures to operate correctly.\015\012The specific condenser and expansion device do the rest.\015\012By coo ...

I'm still working on the same problem. I have a GE refrigerator model GTS22IBMBRCC. The fans come on but the compressor does not. I assume with the fans running this means the thermostat should be working. I get no voltage on the compressor output J8. If I jumper from Line to J8 the compressor comes on. I believe this means the compressor relay on the motherboard is bad. I'd like verification before ordering the board.
Hi,\015\012Before I would order a board I would make sure to jumper the thermostat. The fans do not always just run when you need cooling, on some units they run contsantly or near continous for air circulation. Find the wires going to the ther ...

I have a GE Profile side by side, model #PSC23SGPA that is roughly 6 years old. The freezer and fridge suddenly quick cooling yesterday. The system seems to be running normally - ie controls, fans motors. I need help troubleshooting the problem. From what I have read it could be any number of things - bad compressor, leak in the sealed system charge, control board problem, ect. Can you help me determine what the problem is?

We have a GE TFX22PRXA AA side by side fridge/ freezer . When the compressor shuts off we hear a loud clunk/ rattle. Is there a problem with the compressor, or might it pssibly be a bad mount on the compressor? All cooling and freezing seems fine.
The rubber feet mounts are probably shot, if you cannot replace them do not worry, The motor and winding are suspended on springs inside the pot, they may be just weak. it should not cause any damage. ...
We have a Kirkland Signature model SS25HFXLS side-by-side stainless steel purchased 2003. Have never had a problem with unit until today. Unit not cooling at all. Fan runs continuously & compressor is hotter than a firecracker. Coils have been cleaned recently. I unplugged unit & I'm guessing compressor is bad. Would it be worth having unit checked out or just buy a new one?
What is a ballprk figure for a new compressor????

COMPRESSOR IS HOT AND DOESNT SEAM TO BE WORKING. COULD I HAVE A RELAY PROBLEM OR A COMPRSSOR ISSUE?
You have a bad relay . Replace the " white box " ( it just pushes onto the compressor ) with maybe a small wire to secure it . Take your complete model number , including the 3 numbers in front of the ones you gave , to make sure you get the correct ...

Intermittent problem with kenmore model 106.8609380. It is an old machine but still cools fine. The issue is that the icemaker in the upper freezer compartment has to be "thumped" with my fist 1-2x daily, sometimes not at all, for the compressor to kick on. It then runs till setpoint is reached. It may then cycle normally for 2-3 days then act up and I have to "thump" it again. The light in the refrigerator compartment comes on when the door is opened, regardless of whether the compressor ru

My GE refrig has started making a loud(er) "clunk" noise when the compressor shuts off. This has been going on for a month or so with no other symptoms. Can you tell me if this is indicative of the compressor going bad or some other issue? thanks!
Their can be a couple issue's fan knock or compressor knock..even a loose mountPlease rate/vote the response Thanks ...
When it turns on, it makes a rapid, loud clicking sound for up to about 5 seconds (sometimes just one). Seems related to the compressor activating since the compressor sometimes does not go on, no click, and no cooling, so the fans just keeps running. Then I have to unplug so fan stops and let it sit for many hours, sometimes 24, then replug and the clicking starts and it cools again. What's the problem?

I narrowed my refrigerator problem down to either a bad compressor or bad ptc starter. I removed the old ptc starter and then went to plug in fridge to test wiring to ptc with voltmeter. During time to plug in the 2 wires to ptc ended up coming in contact with each other, blowing a fuse somewhere else. Sounded like near to the top of the unit. What to do now????? Refrigerator madel:
Hi, sounds like you may have burned a wire in half around the thermostat as on the compressor you have R, C, and S, run, common, and start terminals. The common terminal should be connected to a klixon overload relay. Is this what you were jumping o ...
My eurocave compact 50 (a model about 5 years old) seems to be having temperature fluctuations that are too big. it should stay about 54-57 degrees.
lately, sometimes the compressor kicks in and brings the temp down to even 44 degrees.
this just started happening.
i have no reason to believe there is a mechanical problem.
but i did rearrange the bottles. are there too many bottles in there? canthe placement of the bottles cause this problem??
If the bottles are warm and there are a lot of them, this puts a larger amount of heat load on the unit. It can cause it to pull down to a lower temperature. If what ever you decide to to doesn't solve your problem, I would be looking at a problem wi ...
By googchang on Jul 09, 2010 " " It stopped working a few days ago. When I turn it on it has no sound. The compressor is obviously not working. It makes clicking sound a couple of times but never starts running. For a while, the compressor will warm up indicating that the circuit is fine. Where do you think the problem is? Thanks. I have the exact same issue.
The compressor is trying to start....sorry sounds like it needs a new one....can be a expensive excise in some models. ...

Fridge issues im having a fridge issue, plugged it in worked great next day nothing. freezer melted fridge went bad and now its blowing out air but its not cold or hot air...and i dont know how to tell if a compressor is shot or anything else. i took the back panel off and when i put my ear to the computer board i hear a humming sound and the board is warm...also is there supposed to be a green wire with a metal ring at the end just dangling?
Hi adamvovo.\015\012It sounds like the compressor isn't running. The way you can tell if it is or not, is to pull the back off of the refrigerator, and listen, or put your hand on the compressor. It's the small black thing at the bottom, with t ...

I am working on a beverage air model ucr48. the compressor and condesor fan were not running. i plugged the compressor in to a separate power source and it does work. i assumed the wire harness was the issue and replaced, but i am having the same problem. help!
Probably a bad thermostat. I assume that by a seperate power source you mean that you unplugged the condensing unit from the built in black molded outlet and just plugged it into an extension cord or wall outlet. That black molded plug gets power int ...

Freezer stopped cooling then refrigerator. Coils were very dirty and I cleaned them. Air is circulating into fridge but not cold. Compressor running but very hot to touch. Rear fan not working.
Will replacing fan solve compressor hot issue or could there be more than one problem?

I have a 8 year old Refrigerator Freezer Model number ARB9059CS. It has been making a buzzing sound. I had a repair man who replaced the relay. We were away for a few days and came home to more buzzing and the freezer is completely defrosted. The defrost thermostat was replaced in 2008. Now the repair man thinks we need a new compressor. Does this sound correct? Does it pay to fix this fridge? The repair man said it would probably be about $500.00. Why so many problems with this model?
Personally i would replace any item in the home that cost more than $500 to repair,you can save that much in lower running cost for a more upto date version.but ....its your money. ...
