Question about Engel Freezer 22 Qt. Fridge/Freezer

2 Answers

Motor goes on/off every few second.

When I turn on my Engel 40ltr car fridge the motor starts and runs for about 5-10 seconds. Then it sounds like it gets an increased load, (motor sound becomes louder & deeper. Then it stops altogether. After a few seconds it starts the same cycle again - ad infinatum.

You have problem with the motor compressor,it is trying to start, but cannot for one reason or another, could be siezed motor, sticking start relay.etc'
It is stopping and starting due to the motor overload device cutting in and out. it acts as a safety device.
This is usually associated with a serious malfunction..Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

On the circuit board for the swing control you will find a switching transistor which has an overheat cut off attached - it may be that the switching transistor is overheating or the temp monitor is U/S - you can check this by doing a short run with the overheat cut off bypassed. The switching transistor uses the curcuit board box as a heatsink - If in doubt it may be worth changing both.

We have a Bosh KIM29473GB for some time water has been collecting in the bottom tray of the fridge and only takes a few days to fill up, this weekend the freezer stopped working and now nothing works.


If you hear a click every few minutes and a buzz / click then nothing, it would sound as if your compressor is gone, the water problem is the defrost drain pipe is blocked

sounds like your fan motor has seized or burnt out a winding,, this will need replacing. check by holding lid open to raise temp but at the same time hold down the button that the lid presses on when its shut, after about 10min the fan should run.

The motor in my freezer makes a very loud noise and sounds like it is trying to start, it takes a few seconds before it stops the noise, then starts running the freezer.


That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing


That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

ICE MAKER MOTOR RUNS CONSTANTLY AND WONT' TURN OFF ICE IS FULL


It's not too difficult to remove the ice maker. A few screws and the unit will unplug from the fridge. Then you can see why the bar is not turning it off. If it's really broken, check pcappliance.com for parts or a replacement unit. Meanwhile the fridge can keep on working, and you can use trays to make ice.

I think you'll find the relay is there to start the pump by switching the mains to the shorter winding in the motor, hence three terminals. Once the pump is running the relay "drops out" and the motor runs on the longer winding. Check with a multimeter if the windings are intact. There's no Positive and Negative for AC operated devices i.e. it doesn't matter which way around the power (live and neutral or Hot and Cold) goes in but Earth or Ground MUST be correct. Dont kill yourself!!
