    if the fan is not running, you have to check it first because it could be the source also and not the fan.

    again, check first the voltage of the fan, it could be a DC fan.

    the fan should run at the same time as the compressor.

    tnx, drcool

Freezer chest not cooling but Compressor is running


Unless you have a microfarad capacitor meter, you won't be able to check the capacitor. Make sure the evaporator fan motor is running. You may be low on refrigerant.

How to empty drip pan on u-1175rs-00


Generally the defrost drip system is designed to evaporate the defrost water as the compressor fan runs as the forced warm air from the compressor evaporates the water in the tray. As long as the defrost timer is working properly and the compressor fan hasn't failed, you should never have to worry about emptying the tray.

Now, if it's overflowing you will need to determine why, is it the compressor fan, room temperature too cold, defrost cycle not working or what. The tray is usually located behind the grill at the bottom of the refrigerator which just pops off sometimes after opening the door(s). The tray sits in a recess where you lift it out of.

My refrigerator works but the freezer will not freeze liquids. The ice maker works sometimes. What could be the problem.


two thing could be your issue one would be to check the compressor fan and assure that it is constantly spining when these fans get old they tend to turn spiraticly and if this were to happen then the fan would not cool the compressor properly causeing a slight warm up in your unit until the compressor fan was able to start working again as to the icemaker the icemaker does not make ice unless the unit is at 32 degrees. Also if the compressor fan is runnning fine remove the rear wall of the freezer behind this panel is your evaporator coil if you remove the panel and find an ice build up on the evaporator this would be termed as a defrost issue and you would need to test by doing continuity tests on the defrost timer ,the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat as well if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

My True beer cool stopped cooling last night what should I do ?


That is a broad question. Lets do a checklist. When you plug the unit in the compressor behind the grill on the front should come on and the fan in front of the compressor should come on. The radiator in the compressor compartment needs to be clean from all dust and grease. Many times this is overlooked and can cause real problems by letting the compressor overheat. Now look inside and find the fan cover. It hangs from the inside top of the cooler. It should also be running. If either fan is not running the unit will not cool. Sometimes there is an obstruction, such as someone pushing a six pack up against the fan cover and pushing it into the fan. The fan down by the compressor is sometimes blocked by the cardboard shroud that is built around the fan. Also in a few cases rodents have gotten caught in that fan. If everything is running, you will have to look deeper into the compressor compartment. There is a screw in the front of the radiator that hold the compressor unit in the cooler. Unplug the unit from the wall. Remove that screw and slowly and carefully pull the compressor unit towards the front of the beer box. It will slide almost all the way out. You will see a coil of copper tubing at the back of the compressor that allows enough slack in the lines to slide this unit out. When you push this unit back in it helps to have someone behind the cooler to pull back on that coil as you push the unit back into the machine so it does not get crimped. With the compressor unit pulled out, plug it back in at the wall. If your compressor is running and you have proper amount of refrigerant, the small copper tube from the compressor to the radiator will get very hot, enough to burn your finger, after two or three minutes. After 10 minutes the larger copper line that is usually enclosed in a rubber sheathing should get cold. One way to know if you have a burned out compressor is to listen to the compressor and fans when you first plug into the power outlet. A bad compressor will usually try to start for 2 or 3 seconds and then click out. While it is trying to start the fan will slow down because the compressor is pulling way too many amps and is pulling power away from the fan until it clicks out again. If you can hear the compressor come on and run but it makes no heat to the radiator, you probably have a refrigerant leak. Your freon is gone or almost gone. If it was a slow leak you would usually notice that the cooler does not seem to cool like it once did. If it was working good and suddenly stopped cooling, the most likely problem is a bad compressor. Changing a compressor is usually beyond the average do it yourselfer because it requires welding the unit in place and gauges and a supply of refrigerant which is almost impossible to get without a liscense. Let me know what you find out.

Whirlpool Refrigerator not working -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi all, I have a Whirlpool ED22PC SxS fridge which has stopped cooling on both the...


Hi. Due to the fact that the fans are not operational, this will confirm that the Main PCB has failed. This is the main power control board. It must be replaced, asap. The general location of this affected board will be just behind an access panel, near the compressor unit, or on the backside, mounted in the middle section of the unit.

Once the Main PCB board is replaced, the unit will return to its normal operating status.

Gss22jeta refrigeretor quit working


For a refrigerator to operate properly, it must: 1) have power to it; 2) the compressor (underneath the unit) must run; 3) the compressor fan (close to the compressor) must turn; and 4) the evaporator fan (inside the freezer unit, usually behind an access panel) must turn.

These would be the first things to check.

Refrigerator not colling properly


Let it run until you have a problem again then look at the back wall of the inside of the freezer, if there is frost then it's not defrosting and that would be your problem (usually the defrost heater). If you don't see frost then you need to determine if the compressor is running or not. It's possible to hear the two fans run, but not the compressor. If the compressor is running, along with the 2 fans, then it is a sealed system problem and usually not worth fixing. If it's not running you'll need to check the compressor start relay on the side of the compressor. It is possible for a bad compressor to cause the relay to fail, so replacing it may or may not get you going again.
