    Okay, I pulled the cooler out and took the back panel off. the fan was unable to turn so I freed it up. now it runs slowly and occasionly i hear a click and it humms a little and then another click. the small tank, the compressor, i assume is warm. do i still need both a capacitor and a start relay? The thing looks like it has never run since day one.

    Yes, I would replace them and if you can, work some oil on the fan to see if you can get it running faster.

If the compressor is not running you will need to replace the "start relay" and the "run capacitor" on the compressor.
Here is the start relay to order.
Here is the capacitor to order.
Here is a diagram to show you the part locations.
The start relay is number 89 on the diagram and the capacitor is number 96.

The parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

I just moved into a house with a Gaggenau EB 846-6. Light and fan work. Heating element doesn't seem to work in top or bottom 'socket'. Also, neither heating indicator light illuminates

since neither light is going on, then i believe that you either have a bad thermostat, or possibly that you only have half of the voltage going to it, and gaggenau doesn't have gas units so it doesn't have a glow bar like the previous guy said.

My A/C doesn't seem to be cooling very well on my 2006 Kia Spectra. I bought some R-134A, but can't find where to check the pressure and put any in if it is needed. Where is all this located...

follow the lines from the compressor each line should have a fitting with a screw on cap the hose you bought with the R134 should only fit the low pressure side just make sure you got the hose with a gauge.
