SOURCE: neff fridge, compressor makes nasty noise,

Hey there you need to check the motor/compressor PTC start relay which is located on the side of the compressor under the plastic terminal cover, it's mounted on start and run winding pins the third pin is the incoming phase which has a overload connected to it .if this relay stays shorted or doesn't conduct to power the start winding the motor/compressor wont start. also if there's a motor start capacitor test that. tell me how you get on as i have more solutions if that doesn't help.

Please rate my advice too

SOURCE: kenmore Refrigerator all outside body too hot.

I would say your compressor is running constantly and it is the heat from this that is making the fridge sides and front hot.

If it is that would indicate you have problems with either
1/ Your refrigarant is undercharged
or 2/ Your thermostat is defective

A stand alone refridgerator / freezer would tell you if it is keeping the correct temperature. If it is than a freon undercharge would be indicated.

The stop leak probably stopped up your cap tube system and the filter drier.You can try by replacing the filter drier, vacuum the system to 500 microns and recharge.The automotive 134a is the same as any other 134a.

SOURCE: The frige stopped cooling and I can't tell if it

There could be a list of things that cause this. For some reason you are focused on the compressor. So lets begin by unplugging the refrigerator pull away from the wall and remove the paper cover over the compressor area. Touch the compressor to feel is it's too hot to touch or hold your hand on Top. That tells me if its trying to start or if the start relay, capacitor and overload are possibly. Would like to know if the condenser fan is running also while your there. Please also confirm that your model is the GD25HAXLQ. Let me know your results. If I don't hear from you soon I will send my email address because I have not been getting response when someone answers my questions, Thanks, Sea breeze

Not cooling

it could be a thermostat or it could be the relay on the back of the fridge. the relay on the compressor may be bad. pull the fridge out and see if you can feel the compressor. and see if it is hot and if the fan is blowing... if not replace the relay.

Will there be a problem if my R12 freon was changed to 134A without changing any of the components in my airconditioning?

yes the oil will be your problem and r134a is 25% harder on condensing and you may get a bit of flood back to compressor

My refrigerator is running differently each day,sometimes like yesterday it cycles every 20 minutes this morning ran for more than three hours and was not cooling the refrigerator at all.Recently I cleaned...

I am not a refrigerator repairman but I do know that most times the oil for the compressor, which runs with the "freon" is stored at the bottom. Moving it from side to side could mess up the oil needed for the compressor. If you do that again, I think you should unplug it and then let it sit idle for a little while for the oil to drain back into the reserve.
Maybe someone else can give you better advice. It might get back to normal but I would go easy on it for a while if it were me.
