Because there are many factors that can cause current to fluctuate,you will have to determine that with an ammeter or an "amprobe". Clamp the amprobe on one of the compressor line wires and turn it on while looking at the ammeter. You should see an ampere reading.
P.S. Current is read in Ampere.

We have a GE Profile refrigerator, french doors & bottom freezer (pfs22mbsbww). The freezer stopped getting really cold months ago, stays around 30. We have a chest freezer so we didn't really worry about it (less than smart). This morning the fridge and freezer compartments both started warming up, they're at 65 now. We checked the fan in back near the compressor & it was moving very slowly (at a dead stop now). I removed the back panel cover and aimed a box fan at it and it didn't help at all
The evaporator and fan are behind the rear panel inside the freezer usually held in by a few screws up the sides. The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 ...

Ever since I've owned my fridge (coming up on 4 years), the freezer would build up into a big chunk of ice causing the freezer temp to drop and the fridge temp to rise. I would melt the chunk of ice and then drain the water from the back of the fridge. It would work properly for a few months and then start happening again. Now, its happening with more frequency. Currently, the freezer temp is holding around 0 and the fridge temp is up around 55-60.

I was trying to remove a pack of ice cream from the freezer which had got stuck. I used a knife to wedge it out and then a hissing noise came form the freezer for quite a while.afterwards I saw that there was a hole in the coating of the freezer. After a few hours a rattling noise started coming from the fridge. Please help . Currently the fridge is kepy off.
Hi,Sorry, but the fridge is probably ruined...the hole left the freon out and the rattling compressor may have been that dying because of the lack of refrigerant in the system...To repair it at any rate, will cost almost as much as ...
Neither the freezer or the fridge is cooling. We replaced the defrost control which had a burned out section, but nothing. We have noticed for a little while that the fridge made this strange sound like a car trying to start but then the sound would stop. Is this connected in anyway to the current problem and what is the current problem? Right now we can't hear anything running in the fridge.
Hi, Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. \012 \012If you are heari ...

I have a jenn air JCD2389GES side-by-side that I am trying to diagnose. Let me first say, this is a fridge that was in a house I just bought, so I am not sure about its history, but here are my observations.
First, when starting to clean it out, I noticed that there was a lot of ice accumulating in the bottom of the freezer compartment. Based on other posts here, I am pretty sure that's coming from a clogged drain. I am currently defrosting the fridge by letting it sit outside unplugged sin

The freezer makes a loud noise that lessens in time then starts up again. Sounds like its from behind the icemaker of a side by side.
Now E - F is showing in the temp screens, but it seems like the refrig is still working. Whats wrong? and how much?
Noise from the freezer could be as a result of several things. The first thing to check out for would be the voltage level which is supplied by the electricity company. If the voltage is low then this could bring about the unit working in a forceful ...

I've got a frigidaire (gibson) freezer, only a year old. GFU2065FWA. Yesterday it wasn't cold enough. Discovered evaporator coils frozen up with ice and snow. Not defrosting properly.
I let it defrost today.
There is no mechanical defrost timer on this unit. Just an electronic control panel. I tested the heater cord, and current goes through it.
How can I test the electronic panel?
I plugged it back in, and it's starting to cool down now. How much build up on the coils is normal?

My Frigidaire FRT21NRG gets cold in the refrigerator, the freezer also gets cold (i put a bag of ice in there and it has remained in ice form for a couple of days), but it wont make ice or it wont freeze whats already in there (ice cream, pops, icemaker wont come on). I'm assuming its not quite reaching its lower temp needed? I lost power for about 1 day recently and the problem started after the power was restored to the home...prior to that everything was working perfectly.

My Maytag french door, bottom freezer stops cooling. I can hear it humming, the lights are on, but the temp in both continue to climb. We moved everything out,and after several hours, it started working just fine again. I know this is not right and bad things are coming. Whats up?
It's possible, it may be your high voltage control board, going out. If your model has one of these, it will be located on the outside of the machine, on the back. ...
