Why does my fridge not cool,the fan doesn't kick on and the black little tank gets really hot?


A fridge operates due to adiabatics, which is the ability of a gas to absorb energy by compression, which turns to heat, then dispel heat by evaporation. The little black tank is a compressor which compresses the gas in the condensation loop. When the gas is compressed it heats up, so the little back tank will get hot, as will the condensation grid, often at the back of the fridge, which acts like a radiator to cool down the gas inside. When the gas is evaporated into the evaporation loop, it expands again and any rise in temperature caused by the compression will be lost. Add to this loss in temperature caused by the radiator and you have a total net loss in temperature which is significantly cooler than what you started with.
The problem with your fridge has to start with the fan not working as this fan will help to cool the condenser radiator, unless it is a fan inside the unit itself which just distributes the cool air. (without knowing the make an model of the fridge I cannot determine the reason for the fan). Modern low energy fridges have a better and more economical set-up and it seems that your fridge has seen better days. The compressor is clearly working overtime to get so hot and particularly if it never seems to shut down or the fridge cool down. Sadly, I think it's time for a new fridge. You'll save the money you are currently spending on the electricity to run the old one.

Fridge stopped working light on motor not running


Robert,
Need more info. I am unaware of a "light on the motor". There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. Normally none of these have a light. If you are referring to the light inside the box that turns on with opening the door AND the frig is not cooling, we must go to the very start. 1. Verify power at outlet.
2. Do you see (or inside the box- hear) the two fans running. 3. Is the compressor smoothly vibrating?

How to cure a smelly fridge


You can try cleaning the each and every surface with a mixture of lemon juice and baking soda. It also helps to keep an open box of baking soda in the fridge as well (they have boxes with side vents designed for this).

Smeg fridge smell


Turn it on, or open it up. Even new fridges smell funny when closed. It all goes away when cold. Then open a box of baking soda and leave it inside the fridge.
This assumes the unit is CLEAN.

My fridge smells fishy. It is perfectly clean and i have not had fish in there.


Bacteria will cause the smell. Make sure it is cold and put a box of baking soda open inside the fridge. It will absorb the odors. They sell baking soda with a mesh side specifically for your fridge.

We have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator that smells like dead fish when the motor runs (we have never put fish in the refrigerator)- what is the problem and is it something that we can fix?


Sounds like water has gotten into the foam insulation or the unit was left closed for a period of time with no power (not running). You may want to try putting a box of baking soda inside the frig and freezer. Place the boxes to the back on one of the shelves as close to the fans as possible. If that doesn't work you may have to shut it down and leave the doors open for a week with baking soda still inside or 2 to 3 days with a fan forcing air into it constantly still with baking soda inside, of course the food inside would have to be removed.

Problem is rotten smell inside GE profile fridge. I've checked for rotten food-none; taken everything out and cleaned inside plus all shelves with added bleach in water. Smell is still there. I...


Hi, pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. You can also mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section. Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room, so be sure to add water. Finally, another popular methods of removing fridge odor include washing the entire fridge out with a vinegar and water solution, placing fresh coffee grinds or boxes of baking soda on each shelf and even using trays of cat litter.

GE fridge does not get cold, 60 deg in freezer 70 deg in fridge, compressor is running condensor fan is running and fan inside of fridge is working


You have either a bad compressor or a refrigerant leak.Some times a compressor runs but doesn't compress the gas.It is more likely the unit has a sealed system leak which would have to be located,repaired,and evacuated,then recharged.(not a simple task).
