About 36 hours ago our Whirlpool 25.2 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED25CQXFW02 was not cooling (frozen was thawing, and refrigerator was not cold) the compressor and fan were running, I cleaned the coils underneath, and set the controls to startup normal. Within a couple of hours I could tell that it was cooling well again. Today this has happened again, the compressor and fan were not running, I shut it off for a few minuets and restarted it. Now the compressor and fan are on again, and it
Depending on your model. if its just a reg, side by side, you more than likely need a relay/ overload which is located on the compressor,the relay only works after it cools down. unplug ref from wall, remove rear cover to see and touch compressor to ...

Refrigerator and freezer are not cooling. Controls to set temperature of fridge and freezer (these are inside the refrigerator unit) appear to be working - that is, they are lighted and respond to changes in the settings. Fan appears to be running but compressor does not appear to start or run and refrigerator and freezer are not cooling at all. Is this possibly a control board issue or a compressor issue? If it is likely a control board
GE Refrigerator Model No. TFX26KRDAWW on the freezer side will cool to 0 F and then warn to 50 F and stop cooling. The Defrost Timer and Defrost Thermostat have been replaced. When the compressor is running my AMP reading is about 1.5 and when the compressor is not running the reading exceed 15 AMPS.
Sounds like the compressor is going out. Most refrigerators will draw less then 11.2 amps. ...
The Refrigerator is 2 years old, and is no longer able to reach below 38 degrees in the Refrigerator or Freezer. 3 days ago noticed food in freezer was defrosted.

Hi Chris,The problem would seem to be that you developed a small leak in the refrigeration system. This is also assuming that you checked and cleaned the condenser coils which are underneath the fridge. Excessive dirt could also cause thi ...

I have a may tag MBB 2254 G /2256 G refrigerator. The machine was not cooling, pulled the back and front panels and vacuumed out, full of dust, lint etc. I plugged back in, let go for a hour or so, a little cooling but not much. The compressor seemed fairly hot. I could hear the relay cycling I assume to kick the compressor. After several seconds hear another relay click. I do not feel any coldness on the compressor copper lines. The back fan is running, the interior fan is circulating.

the compressor at the back of ref is too hot and i don't see a blower motor fan to cool the compressor. the compressor don't seem to be running.
Hi,The condenser fan at the compressor may be bad and it contributed to the compressor not running...Turn it off completely and let is cool over night and then plug it back in and see if the fan runs and if the compressor runs... ...
Maytag MDZ2665HEB side by side does not cool. Both fans are running. Ice buildup below condenser (inside) fan. The dryer? fan was replaced for the second time in 3 years just 6 months ago as was, the thermostat board inside the refrigerator. I do not hear compressor starting. This has a run capacitor but I don't know how to check it. There is no clicking or any indication that the compressor is trying to start. This happened very suddenly either yesterday or today as most of the meats on the l
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 ...

Refrigerator stopped cooling. Compressor not turning on...No clicking or switch noises heard when attempting to actuate thermostat control- Fan does turn on and run when controlled by thermostat. Can also control fan by actuating pot in defrost timer. Do not hear "any" switch noise at compressor relay - even when attempting to control by actuating thermostat or defrost timer.
There was no warning when fridge stopped cooling - no compressor noise or other odd sounds.
First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermosta ...
Kitchenaid Superba Model KSRA25IL5502. Refrigerator and freezer do not cool at all. The digital temperature readouts indicate correct refrigerator and freezer temperatures but are incorrect.

The evaporator fan discharge in the freezer and refrigerator are not moving any air. I unplugged the unit, waited a minute and plugged it back in incase it was something simple like a e

All of a sudden our refrigerator freezer and refrigerator stopped freezing and cooling.. The fan is working, cleaned the coils, but when the compressor kicks on it only runs for about 10-15 seconds before kicking back off and makes a loud noise when running.. Is our compressor going out, and if so can I replace it myself..
UNPLUG and remove the compressor relay...if it rattles when you shake it..its bad, if not, it could be the compressor..it takes alot of specialized training and tools and material to replace a compressor. Its not a job that can be done by the average ...

Refrigerator and freezer have both stopped cooling. Interior light is on and fan under refrigerator runs but the compressor does not come on. There was dog hair on the coil under the front of the unit which I have cleaned off. There was no dirt under the back panel around the compressor and fan.

Kitchenaid side by side model #DS 110022-RN refrigerator. The refrigerator side not cooling, air flow through top vent almost non-existent. The freezer side is at 0 or below with a very strong blow. The compressor is hot with a continuous running cycle. The fan next to compressor is running. The vent area at the bottom is blowing cold, so much so that it froze by celery and onions, also the temp gage is on the
food storage line. The shelf above is registering at the 50 range at food spoilage.

Whirlpool ET20DKXAW00 refrigerator. Freezer is cold but does not freeze and refrigerator compartment cool. Compressor runs and shuts off (seems to be working). I do not hear the fan run in the freezer compartment. Could the fan be the problem?
Could be the fan - take back panel off and check it runs. could also be the compressor shutting down on overheat after running a while ...
I have side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool properly. The food will stay frozen as long as it is in the bottom of the freezer. The refrigerator stays semi cool. The fans are running the compressor seems to be running. I did notice that it doesn't look like it is defrosting like it suppose to. The freezer was over packed at one time and I think that had something to do with it. How do I reset the mechanism that will let this defrost again and get it back on it timer
You can first try shutting it down for a day and let it defrost,but i believe if you remove the rear panel inside the freezer and it has a coating of frost and ice on it now,then your going to find that the defrost thermostat or defrost heater has go ...

Doesn't cool ..Viking Side by Side
..unit is about 7 years old
..no former trouble
..quit cooling; will only reach 40-50 degrees in freezer section
..compressor runs continuously along with compressor fan and freezer fan
.. have cleaned condenser coils at top
.. have removed cover from evaporator within freezer
.. no obvious problems
.. hard to escape conclusion that refrigerant charge has been lost
Hi,\015\012 Yes, If the evaporator was not frozen over then I agree with you. The unit has lost its refrigerant charge. The only thing you can do is to have a licensed refrigeration man find the leak, repair it and recharge it or replace the refriger ...

We have a Kenmore 596.50399001 side by side refrigerator. The center divider can get very hot, the refrigerator compressor is running but not the fan. If the refrigerator is moved or shook the fan will start and the divider cools down. Should the fan be replaced or is another part causing this problem?
If you are talking about the freezer fan motor, it should be running if the compressor is running.if the compressor runs without the fan running the compressor will overheat and become damaged.\015\012The mullion heater in the door divide ...
My Maytag mfi2568aes refrigerator w/french doors is not cooling. It appears to have working fans; however all of the food in the freezer is defrosting, and the refrigerator compartment is warming. There is a small amount of cool air coming into the refrigerator compartment, but it is not enough to cool the area. I checked the HV circuit board and it doesn't seem to have any visible defects. I also checked the compressor which seems to be running very smoothly without excessive heat build up
Hi,If the compressor is running then you either have a leak or the compressor failed internally..my guess would be that you developed a freon leak....Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttroubl ...

Ge side by side refrigerator........the fridge stopped working, there
is power...i removed the bottom back panel and the fan that cools
the compressor was making a clicking noise and the fan blade

motor (and fan) and the compressor kicked on and began to run
normally........this also happe
Hi!!\015\012\015\012Make sure the condenser coil in front of the fan is clean. Also, make sure the fan is working strong, not just barely moving. The whole area can be cleaned using a vacuum with a brush adapter. When doing the condenser coil ...
