If compressor is running check and make sure your cond. fan and evap fan are running. Also check in freezer and make sure evap. coil is not covered in ice. Also clean your condenser coil. You could be low on refrigerant. There are quite a few things to check.

SOURCE: Fridge compresor runs but the unit is not cooling

Sounds like you have a bad compressor,it's running but not pumping refrigerant through the system.

SOURCE: Does not cool. Compressor is running, fans are

Hi, Look in the freezer section and see if there is frost building up on the rear inside panel. If the is frost, on of three parts are bad in the automatic defrost.
If there is no frost, the compressor might be weak and not pumping the coolant as strong as it should.
Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer sevtion and see if the evaporator is frosting at all.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further with this issue.

well you need to know when it was manufacture if it lands under the 5 years seal system warranty then it can be fix for free. on the other hand be sure that compressor is running because if it is not it could be a relay and that is a cheap fix

SOURCE: compressor not working

Why did you change the mother board? Was the compressor working before the change? If it was, then you need to check the new board and see if there were any wires that need to be cut when it was installed. If it wasn't running before the board change then you might try the overload on the compressor first. Also it should be checked with a compressor checker to determine if the comp is at fault or not

This is what to do. On the side of the compressor is a relay overload set. Unplug the power cord. Connect a meter to the wires going into that set. If there is no power you will need the mother board linked below. If there is power you will need another overload relay set.

You are cycling on the compressor overload, meaning the compressor is drawing excessive amperage, the overload takes it out then it cools down and tries again. the normal amp draw for those compressors is 3-4 amps. Have you checked the condenser fan and made sure the coil is clean?
unfortunately those compressors cannot be serviced

Will not get cold. hear a clicking noise from back around compressor


That sound is the sound of death....... The compressor is trying to start but can't and the overload is tripping. May only need a new start capacitor or a 3 in 1 start capacitor which replaces the overload start relay and capacitor. If you have a amp meter you can check the amp draw to see if it is drawing Locked Rotor Amps. Look at the name plate on the compressor and it will give you LRA.and see if it is close to it. Then check it again after you replace the start components and see what it is drawing if it has not started and still drawing high amps then the compressor is locked up and will have to be replaced.

I have a Rheem heat pump/air handler; it draws 2.9amps with only the fan running, 13amps when the heat pump is running and 38amps with the heat strips on. My question is why the unit draws that many amps...


Sounds like it must be about a 2.5- 3 ton system. The 13amps has to be the compressor draw -normal. and 38 on the strips- normal. 2.9 fan -normal.

You may want to check your wiring to see where the outside unit gets its power. Theres nothing inside that can draw 13 amps. That almost has to be the compressor power wire.

The lights are on in the refrigerator and freezer, but neither unit is cold. The thermometer on the refrigerator registers 55 degrees. Why is it not cooling??


First, make sure the compressor is running. It is underneath the refrigerator body. If the compressor is running, and you still don't have cold air, check the compressor fan. This should be close to the compressor. This fan draws air across the coils and removes heat from them. The compressor and fan must both be operating properly to get cold air.

Refrigerator Compressor hot to touch & fridge/freezer not cooling


you need to do an amp draw with your meter,clamp the run wire on the compressor,you should get 2-5 amp reading,any higher means the compressor is going bad,also should be a locked rotor amp(LRA) reading on comp.-mike
