Found the unit circulator fan running but not cool in the freezer or fresh food compartment. I unplugged and replugged and the compressor started running shortly. I checked the frost-free feature already (clicked the light switch in the fresh food compartment 5 times in 6 seconds). I took the cover off the back of the cabinet and the compressor is now hot, but not too hot to touch. The unit is just not cooling off very quickly. I know the compressor is only 1.1 to 1.6 amps and that's not much. I
The compressor CAN run and still be defective. It's like having a car engine with a bad cylinder-it loses compression and therefore loses power. Unfortunately, this is indicitive of Frigidaire refrigerators. If the compressor will try and start, m ...

Kenmore refrigerator seemingly runs all the time. Defrost cycle must be working, because I find no frost on the evaporator. On a setting of 3, the recommended setting, the refrigerator is 40 degrees, the freezer 0 degrees. It seems that by turning the thermostat down, to, say, 2, or even 1, the compressor should shut off. Yet it doesn't. It will only shut off if I turn the knob to "off." So, the thermostat would appear to be defective, right?
Yes you are right the thermostat is not responding to switch off the compressor at the desired temperature setting. It stay "always on" position. Replace the thermostat to rectify this problem....................sodeepPS: low refrigerant gas co ...
Westinghouse aurora frost free freezer.the freezer fan seems to be running all the time and should the compresor turn off occassionaly what should i be looking for,would it be the thermostat. thanks mark
It could be the thermostat. Before getting into that you should check a few other things. Check and make sure the condenser on the unit is clean and has free air around it. On some models the outer skin of the refrigerator or freezer acts as the surf ...

My admiral frost free refrigerator atb1710dr is leaking in to the lower part of the refrigerator
3 year old VUAR141 cools but only gets down to 16C at coldest setting(spec is 4 to 14 C)Compressor and cooling fan only run for approx 3 minutes then shut off for 20 minutes or more before restarting. Evaporator plate is below 0 C when compressor is running. Good air flow over condenser. Seems like thermostat is out of range. Is it most likely to be: Potentiometer, Thermister, or control box? Does control box limit compressor run time, if so what is limit run time?
Those symptoms you describe indicate a compressor that is "short cycling", if it is indeed starting and running for those 3 minutes. Is the evaporator cold for those three minutes as well? Many times people think its running, then shutting off, when ...
Viking Professional Series VUAR141
I have found this unit overheating multiple times. Each time the coils were not totally frosted, but defrosted them with hair dryer and restarted. Unit runs fine for weeks. Last time, discovered the fan in freezer was not running. Unplugged, plugged back in and unit cooled to setpoint. Is this a circuit board issue or fan problem.

We have a Bosch Refrigerator, Model B20CS81SNS, 3 years old.
It did run perfect for all this time. Now the freezer section will not reach the preset temperature of 0 deg F.
Switched the fridge off for 36 hours to let it defrost, just in case. But it did not cure the problem. It still only reaches about 26 deg. F. Sometimes it will reach 0 deg F for a short time and than go back to 26 deg F. I placed two thermometers in the freezer compartment to check on the temperature. The regular section of t

Refrigerator conversion. I want to convert the above refrigerator to a non frost free running cycle. Is it simple to do? Westinghouse Aurora frost free refrigerator 500 Litre. Replies to [email protected] Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Kel.
Forget about it. Frost free refrigerators are engineered to be exactly that. ...
General Electric Eterna series ESS25CGMC CC freezer coil keeps frosting over with ice crystals. Result is freezer stops freezing, refrig. stops cooling. I have defrosted it 2 times, and afterwards it works great for about 2 weeks, then it frosts over again! Internal Fan is running fine, I have cleaned compressor coils and fan is running fine there too! Door seals are in great shape and you can feel a definite vacuum on the doors seals when you open either door.
Inwalker1954,\015\012\015\012It sounds like your defrost element or the control is bad. To check the defrost coil you will need to unplug the frig and unload the freezer. If you have enough ice chests everything should be good for several ...
It is a frost free refridgerator, but it frosts up and the refridgerator part doesn't cool as well. I end up having to "defrost" the freezer by turning it of or running a hair dryer in it to rid it of the frost, then the refridgerator part will start cooling again, until it frosts back up in the freezer, How do I fix this?

Whirlpool side by side fridge/freezer. freezer works great, fridge isnt cold('50) the vent between the fridge and the freezer at the top left rear keeps getting clogged with frost, and the ice door in the freezer door makes a moaning sound when freezer door is closed. also, the fridge door becomes extremely difficult to reopen after initially closing(vacuum lock?) please help, the thing seems to run an awful long time yet shuts down from time to time so i think the defrost timer's working
Good day,\015\012The vacuum lock effect is normal. Indication of a tight box.\015\012The thermostat would cause the machine to run for a long time, since that area isn't cold enough. \015\012This is my sugges ...

GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
Firstly the totally frost free Indesit fridge/freezer BAN 134 FF UK has to be defrosted from time to time as the fan blades hit the ice build up and become noisy. Secondly, the relay in the circuit board calls but doesn't hold resulting in a loud ticking approx. two times a second which slows to once a second if the fridge door is opened. Switching off and leaving for up to half an hour cures problem for a while.

My Sub-Zero 611/O is not cooling enough. The temp is 0 in the freezer and 46 in the fridge. I vacuumed very well the condenser. I can't tell which compressor is running. There are two, one larger than the other. The fan is running non stop. Last month there was every day a frosted area inside the fridge of about 6 inches in diameter and up to 1/4 in thick. I would remove it by just pulling it away from the rear panel of the fridge. There was a lot of moist and sometimes even some drips. The fros

Sub-Zero 611 / O Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Our side by side side by model was purchased in 2002 and has been problem free. Starting about two weeks ago following a party, there has been a continual frost build-up in the freezer. I have removed the frost and wiped the freezer dry 3 times and removed a bag full of ice from the lower basket thinking that may have started the problem by setting the stemperature too low. What can we do now?

Maytag model LRTD17A (16.5 cu ft) runs constantly 24 hous a day. The freezer gets cold but takes forever to freeze solids like meat, hasn't frozen a bottle of vitamin water in three days. Supposed to be frost free but has snowy ice buildup. I can feel a faint current of air from the freezer fan though I can hear the fan running strong. The refrigerator compartment barely gets cold at all. I can find no air flow into fridge compartment (should there be?)

KDN9713iD Frost-free fridge freezer
Has lost power for the 2nd time in a week. Barely 12 months old. Electrical supply all ok. fuses etc Last time we emptied the f/f thinking the worst power returned after leaving overnight !!
Whirlpool arc7612. Fridge not getting cold. Freezer obviously working as it frosts up despite being 'frost free'. Slight gap in door seal near top of door. Last time we had this happen I unplugged it for a da#y, plugged it back in and it worked. Guessed it was frozen up and blocked somewhere??
You have to replace the door seal. The seal may be a mundane technology and it isn't the only technology making a refrigerator frost-free, but it is the most important one. Warm moist air enters through the gap in the door seal, condenses on cold ...
