Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Amana SBD20MW Frig. is 22 years old, never any problems. Recently the motor would stop running and both the freezer and frig sides would warm up.

How can I fix this problem?

GE refrigerator Model No. GBS22KBSAWW A relay on the control board was clicking and the evaporator fan would try to start with each click. With the evaporator fan disconected the compressor runs, etc. I replaced the evaporator fan motor, and before I installed it, I pluged it in and the motor turned, but when I put the fan blade on, it would not turn, like the old one. Also, the condensor fan does not turn, but does not make the control board click.


This normally could be a bad start relay and over load for the compressor, dirty condenser coils need cleaning, condenser fan motor is not running or the compressor itself. The Relay needs to be replaced and checked.But if the problem is sa ... GE Refrigerators

Refrigerator part not cooling, freezer is fine Amana TXI18JW (top freezer model) I noticed in the last week or so that my refrigerator was slowly starting to warm up, so I started to turn the dial up on the frig control part to colder, but the temperature continues to rise (higher), and it is now at 54 degrees. Fan on back is running and works well, just replaced a few months ago, also replaced defrost timer a few months ago in front of frig bottom, compressor feels warm-hot and working. Fr

We have a Roper by Whirlpool RT21LMXKQ freezer on top. Friday night it started clicking and the compressor would come on but only run for a millisecond before it cut off. Satruday morning we left if off for 3-4 hours and we plugged it back in after cleaning all areas we could reach (we also had taken off the back panel and the compressor was too hot to touch!) We plugged it back in at noon on Saturday and it has run fine until this morning (Monday) now the clicking is happening again and the c

Have a Frididaire side by side less than six years old. WAs running fine. I moved. During the summer months I would hear the motor like it would come on and off, on and off and then oneday NOTHING. I live out in the middle of NOWHERE. My husband is not an appliance repairman, but he is handy with tools and says he could probably fix it if we can get an idea where to start. Help.....


It sounds like the compressor is locked up, and replacement is the only fix. By any chance did you lay the refrigerator down when you moved it? (It's OK to lay them down, but only on a particular side which varies from unit to unit.).The ... Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Beverage Air MT 27 and t isn't cooling. Sounds like the compressor ties to kick on but then doesn't. There is a click each time it tries to go on then clicks off. Almost as if there is a charge or signal being sent to the compressor but doesn't fully turn on the compressor. The fan and motor still run fine. There have been a couple times when the compressor starts for a second or two and then has tripped the gfci outlet it plugged into and then the whole unit shuts down. Any ideas?

(and relay burnt out) Now if I unplug 1/2 hour it works for another 1-2 days before buzzing starts. Ran the service tests and on test #2 compressor/conden

This started yesterday...lights in frig work fine...I have to turn the knob around on the temp control and after awhile it will "click" or "pop" almost like the sound of turning a breaker on or off...not as hard though...this lasts for 20 or 30 min and it shuts off again...any ideas?


This sounds like your thermostat is bad. You can replace it where the control knob is. There should be two screws to remove it and then you are able to take the part to a supply house and get a new thermostat for the fridge. ... Frigidaire FRT8B5E Top Freezer Refrigerator

Sub zero 211 rfd refrigrertor/freezer (on bottom) does not get cold enough to freeze bottom unless you turn the thermostat to a colder setting. Then the refrigerator (top) starts freezing contents as well. Is the bottom freezer fan supposed to run when the top fan is running (it is not running)? If so, I think the freezer motor may not be turning on. Are there any other fixes besides replacing the freezer motor ?

I have a Kenmore Frig Model 596.50392000 / MFG No P50392000WO / SN 0006287370 The Frig will run for 2 days and work fine. Then it will start to warm up (Frig and Freezer), and everything starts to melt, will get all the way to 70 degres in the frig - while you can hear it still running. Turn it off for a day or so, turn it back on - and you can repeat the cycle. I did previously pull it out clean it all, fan and coils the best I could with no difference.

After a couple more days it started making the clicking sound again and stopped working. We've been thru about 4 of these cycles now over the past couple of weeks.

I have a Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator, model gc1shaxmb00. Recently, a clicking noise started from the back of the fridge. The clicks would last for a minute or two, then stop.

If either door is opened, the clicking stops and the water dispenses normally. This has been going on for over a week and now the clicking is

Our Kitchenaid frig model KSRS25FG is making a clicking sound every few minutes, sort of like a relay switching, at the bottom right behind the grill. The interior fan is running and seems to alternate between slowing and speeding up when the click occurs. The frig is almost 9 years old. Do you have any ideas what this new noise indicates?

I have an Amana side by side frig and the freezer is not keeping ice cream cold. The refrigerator side seems fine. The freezer side is set to 7 but it no longer clicks like it used to when you turn the dial to lower numbers. It was working fine and the freezer kept things very cold and then all of a sudden things started to melt. However, some things in the freezer still freeze, while other things like ice cream do not. Any possible solutions? The frig is about 8-9 years old. Thanks, Davi
