SOURCE: refrigerator will not cool

there is a fault in compressor motor the clicking is the overload cutting off,If its a relay on the motor its worth repairing,If its the whole motor it would be too costly,I know
its not what you want to hear,but thats the size of it.the relay is in a black plastic box on the motor itself,I hope its that

SOURCE: water leaks from top mounted freezer area into the refrigerator

Remove the food from the freezer and the icemaker if equiped . Remove the air tower at the rear of the freezer section and remove the rear panel inside the freezer . Using a hair dryer to the drip pan , below the coils ( probably ice ) , starting at the center , defrost until you see the drain hole . Keep defrosting the hole ( hot water helps ) until water starts to flow down . Using a short piece of hose , insert it into the drain hole and blow . This should blow out any debris inside the drain hole . I would use a short piece of solid ALUMINUM wire ( 14-16 guage about 8 " long ) striped of all insulation , and insert it into the hole as far as possible , without any force . Wrap the other end about 1--1 1/2 turns around the black tube ( defrost heater ) above the hole . When the heater comes on , heat will transfer to the aluminum wire and keep the drain from freezing up again . Reasemble back panel , air tower , and , icemaker . Reinstall the food and its FIXYA'd .

Can a compact refridgerator be recharged


Yes, but you have to understand that if it needs recharged, it has a leak and must be found, repaired, evacuated then properly recharged. Most compact reefers only hold a few ounces of refrigerant, so it does not take much of a leak to affect its ability to cool....Your issue could be something other than refrigerant if its just not cooling.

Kemore compact refrigerator


It sounds like the temperature control is inoperative. They aren't too hard to replace, and $150 seems high for a control, but If replacing it is not something you or a friend could do, then a new refrigerator seems like the best choice for you.
Nothing lasts forever, and if you have already got 15 years of service out of it, then it would be a bad gamble to put that much money in a repair. I'd buy a new one and sell your old one on Craigslist to someone willing to fix it. You may find that you can go a lot longer than two weeks between defrosts during drier parts of the year, and the 'fridge isn't going to care if you go a lot longer than you think is necessary between defrost cycles.

Refrigerator will not cool down


If the unit does not cool down at all, then you might have a refrigerant leak and be low on gas. Locate the leak, fix, and refill to manufacturer's specs.

Compact Refrigerator stop cooling, I am out of ideas.


Good day,
If you hear the compressor running, then the overload and relay are O.K. It can be one of three things.
1. Leak developed in system.
2. Restriction internal in the refrigerator sealed system.
3. Valves in compressor failed, which would not provide any pumping action for the refrigerant.

None of these items are practical repairs on a compact. But if it's under warranty (under 5 years old), check with the selling dealer for warranty claim.
P.S. Does not apply if coils were punctured.

Thank you for using FixYa

New kemore compact won't get cold, motor runs ok but won't turn off


If it's new (under 5 years of age) it is under factory warranty, if it's a sealed system failure. Bad compressor, refrigerant leaks, or restrictions in the connecting tubing.
Contact Sears with complete model and serial number.
