SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator gold conquest shuts off

Start at the basics; shut off, and then remove front grill and if necessary, back covering(s). Vacuum and/or blow compressed air into condenser fins, including coils in the back; especially paying attention to piping that looks to expand or balloon, clean these carefully with a rag and warm water to remove grime; retry. If issue continues, turn up your front thermostat to see if you start to hear continuing clicking sounds from the back, if so that may be your overload switch going bad, in which requires replacing. ee

SOURCE: Upright frig/freezer not getting cold, compressor running

1.My first suggestion, is to clean out the compressor area located at the bottom of the refrigerator. Refrigerator unplugged from power. Remove the cardboard panel from the bottom, (Watch the water line), and use a vacuum. I also bring the refrigerator towards an open door, and use compressed air to blow it out, afterward. You'd be surprised how much gunk builds up here, and how cleaning it out will help your fridge tremendously! (Good tip for air conditioners also. Power unplugged, case cover removed. Use a garden hose to flush the fins out. Let it dry, reinstall the cover) 2.Your refrigerator may be low on Freon. This requires a professional to purge the system, and reinstall Freon and lubricant.

SOURCE: frig will not stay cold unless you keep moving the

the thermostat is most likely to go. i would replace that. if you want to make sure and you have a meter handy. set it to then ohms scale. turn off the power remove control cover set a test lead on each side of the control knob. as you go higher your resistance number goes higher. then you no its good. to test the thermostat you would have to turn power on. i dont recommend it unless certified, if seen some things. thanks hope this answer helps.

TRUCK STARTS EVERY TIME WHEN COLD RUNS GREAT BUT WILL NOT RESTART UNTIL COLD AGAIN (1993 GMC 4.3L )


Call up your local truck parts dealer and get the part! I believe that you have the solution to the starting problem if you replace the auto choke control.

Have a '94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe 4X4 and it starts


My suspicion is a starter going bad. Sometimes when starters get old and worn they will start good when the engine is cold but not when the engine is warmed up. Did you perhaps notice that lately is seemed to drag when you tried starting, especially warm or it seemed to crank a little slower? I'd replace the starter. Hope this helps.

I have a samsung sxs fridge model rs2555 after power failure wont restart on its own lost all the food ,, pushed both power buttons to restart runs fine till loss of power wont restart ,,some times it...


Sounds like the cold control has stuck open. Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.
If this doesn't work Do this

That is probably the compressor relay or cold control (Thermostat
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Refrigerator isn't cold


Your refrigerator has a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment. There will be a small hole that you can stick a pencil eraser through and I want you to slowly turn the control clockwise slowly. When refrigerator stops I want you to wait 20 to 30 minutes until it restarts. If it does not restart again slowly turn clockwise until it starts. If it does not restart on its own the defrost time is defective and will need replaced. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

1997 dodge 1500 starts fine when cold, won't restart when warm.


No, the coil the is not the problem. I would take the ignition module and have it tested. Even though it may not test bad b/c it is still cold, it is more than likely the problem. Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when the trouble occurs?
