Tip & How-To about Refrigerators

Analysis and how to Fix the Generic problem for all Refrigerators

If symptoms of damage such as: fridge not cold, no noise from the compressor, how to analysis and improvement:

1. Check the incoming voltage to the compressor, make sure there is voltage coming into the compressor, a simple way to hold the engine compressor. if there are hot that means the voltage has been entered. the part that does not work is the compressor. you should replace it and fill freon. you must have special equipment to be replaced, such as welding equipment, analyzer to check freon pressure and pressure compressor. and many more tools that should be necessary.
2. Thermostat how to replace it: simply replace the existing thermostat in the freezer space, there is a screw that must be opened, open by pulling the cover and then remove from the holder thermostat. replaced in accordance with the size and spec. there are only two wires are connected there, no matter if inverted in installing.
3. Timer: Timer can be damaged, causing the compressor does not work, the indication: there is no noise from the compressor. timer location near the compressor (in box) or in room fridge, usually near the refrigerator light. first try to turn the timer until the refrigerator running. if it still does not work just replace the timer.

4. check the thermal fuse and the thermo bimetal (thermo switch) and the heater as a function of defrost in the refrigerator. these parts connected to the function of "timer", if one is not functioning will cause the refrigerator does not work normally even the refrigerator is not cold.

The fridge is not cooling,no fan noise but light on


Make sure that the compressor is working, You will need to take the fridge out and check the compressor motor for the start up on switch on > If not check the starter/contactor which could be defective and fitted to the motor. replace if faulty. Use a clamp tester or get help to finalise on this observation. Use a multimeter for checking for the voltage to the fan also. It might be possible that some rodents could have biten off your wires while you were out. so lets hope this is possible and so take a good look inside. If not check your compressor, starter. Good day

freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough


Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

my fridge freezer defrosted n now wont wrk


what you are hearing is the overload kicking in and out. which means bad start relay /bad capacitor/low voltage/bad overload/bad compressor.you can buy a 3in1 to eliminate all but the compressor. and the voltage check them first.

Power to compressor must be off (about 5 minutes) before a restart should be tried. Some of these relays are thermal and must cool down before power is reapplied.
