Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The refrigerator lamp unit did not shut off when the double doors were closed and caused the lamp to overheat. It burned the lamp itself as well as melted a hole above it in the top through to the insulation. It is out of warranty but it could have started a fire. Any suggestions what we should do? Sears want $275. Dollars for a service call to see if they can fix it or give us $500. towards a new one. This one was $2000. Do we have a case for a recall or suit?


Answers :

If this is a lg our the model number starts with 795, it should be fixed for free. There is a known issue, needs a service kit. Comes with main pcb and light sheild. Call sears back and tell them you have a service flash 46-515, I think that's the number. They should take it from there .

I have a kenmore refrigerator model 2537481240E. The compressor will not run and there is a burnt smell from the start relay/overload. I searched for the part at Sears parts direct, but I don't know which part to order....One part is called an overload and it includes a relay (4387835), the other part is called a start relay (2262181). Can you help me decide which part I need ????? e

I have a Col Pac Hydrocollator cold pack chilling unit, mod. # c-6 ser.# 1661. The compressor is trying to start and then kicks out in about a sec. I think it could be the current relay or potiential relay? How can you tell which is which? And how can you tell if either one is bad? There is also a temp. sensor/safety? Under the cover with the relay externally cliped on what is this called? Im open for suggestions. Thank you, pool_player4


Hi,\015\012The most likely problem, besides the compressor being locked up, is the start capacitor...you have maybe a 50-50 chance that it is the cap. When changing the cap also change the relay(s) also as they could have the contacts burnt bec ... Refrigerators

I have a GE refrigerator model# PFS22S1SBSS. One day I noticed that my temp display was out. I called Ge and they said it was a bad motherboard and they sent me a new one at no charge. Now, the refrig started clicking, and the compressor makes a humming sound while taking 3-6 clicks to start. Everything else seems to work. GE sent me a second new motherboard that only lasted about 12 hours and the click is back again. I removed the lower rear panel and discoverd the click is coming from the sma

I have a lg model number lfd22860tt and the refrigerator lamp cover melted and fell off. when i called they told me there was a issue with these and they are being changed to a new kind of light kit that doesn't get as hot, why did i not receive a recall notice on this and can it start a fire, i took the lamp cover off and i am on the list for a service call.


The same thing happened to mine. The reason it happened was that one of 2 push button door swiches failed and didn't shut the lights off when the doors were closed. They were on for hours and caused the lamp cover and housing to overheat and greatly ... Refrigerators

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 ...

Hello, I have a side-by-side Samsung Refrig from Costco. I freezer started to ice up today. I removed the ice maker compartment and took some of hte freezer items out to provide more room for the air to circulate. I don't think the evaporator motor is working. I can't hear the noise it usually makes. Suggestions? How can I be sure it's the evaporator motor? Where can I get a new one if this one is no good? Where do I get a diagram on how to replace the evaporator motor? Thanks, Jorge Luis


The evaporator fan motor will not run when you have the door open - you have to press the door switch in to make it run.But if you are doing this and the fan is still not running then this explains the evaporator ice up problem. ... Refrigerators

Twice before the fan had frozen and stopped blowing the cold up to the fridge...we had that part replace each time. now it seems to be a different problem.

Suddenly we heard and saw gas releasing. We have now gotten all the ice out and can not see what was broken. Assumed it was a hose but there is only one black tube in the back, up-top, and it does not look broken. Am hoping we can fix this on our own, any suggestions? thanks

We bought a refrige from Sears two years ago. And with the first one the light in the inside stayed on so much it melted the liner. So they replaced it for free.

There is a problem here that we did not cause and we need a solution.
