SOURCE: Freezer fan is not working

the fan may be jammed due to ice build up. in the first instance i would give the unit a full defrost for 48 hours then see if the fan starts after, if not the fan motor may be u/s.

sounds like either your fan is bad or a wire may have burned off of it. Follow the wires forthe fan back to where they make the junction with the compressor wires. when ever the compressor runs your right that the fan needs to run. If you have a meter you could ohm out the fan and see if the motor windings are indeed bad. a reading of infinite would tell the tale.go out and spend 15 or 25 o us and get a new condenser fan motor after you remove your old one and make sure that the one that oyu get is the same. and replace it.

SOURCE: Freezer works Refrigerator will not cool down

The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Compressor and Compressor Fan Not Working

Rotate the dial on the defrost thermostat, a big click is when it goes into defrost, a little more and it should turn the compressor back on. By overload protector, do you mean the one under the compressor cover?

I have a Turbo Air TGF-49F freezer and it is not cooling. The compressor unit seems to work but when I turn the unit on all I hear is the compressor running continuously but nothing gets cold.


Difficult for you to check this I'm afraid, if the fan on the cooling unit is working unless you have an experienced 'ear' you will not hear the compressor running or worse still occasionally clicking.
Possible faults are
1. Compressor not running (the fan will run even if the compressor does not) electrical fault
2. Compressor seized (consult your service guy) also true for the rest of these
3. Compressor not pumping
4. Refrigerant leak

Not much hope for a cheap repair

Side by side, refrigerator works, but freezer does not The freezer just started thawing everything. We can still hear something running in the refrigerator.


This is unusual. The more common set of circumstances is that the freezer works but the refrigerator doesn't. The cold air in a side-by-side is produced on the freezer side and is than transferred throughout the freezer and to the refrigerator by a fan in the freezer.

You say you hear something running in the refrigerator. This could be the freezer fan. It is located behind an access panel in the freezer. This fan should run.

You should also hear the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) running. If this doesn't run, you will not get cooling. Also, there should be a compressor fan (underneath the refrigerator close to the compressor) running. This fan removes heat from the refrigerant coils and transfers the heat to the outside. If this fan doesn't run, proper cooling cannot be obtained.

Check these things out.

Not sure of the model or make, but the freezer and refridgerator work and then dont work, i can freeze water but a day or two later it's thawed?


First, make sure the refrigerant coils underneath the unit are not dirty. If so, clean them off.

Second, make sure the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) is running.

Third, make sure the compressor fan (underneath the refrigerator close to the compressor) is turning. This fan should always be turning when the compressor is running. It removes heat from the refrigerant coils and transfers it to the outside.

Fourth, make certain the evaporator fan (in the freezer, likely behind an access panel) is turning.

All of these conditions must be present for proper cooling.

Fans inside freezer will not turn - no cooling - compressor fan underneath is turning


The fans are controlled with a clixon that has a cut in at 5 degrees, and cut out at 20 degrees. If the unit is running and the fans are not comng on then I would have to say you are out of freon. But your condensor fan could be running and the compressor NOT be running which could be a problem with your compressor. Find out if your compressor is running by taking an amp draw. If compressor IS running then you are low on freon. If the compressor is running and your evaporator coil is cold and your fans AREN'T coming on then your clixon is bad.

Running warm. how do I recharge freon?


There are no service valves on refrigerators for charging.(They must be added).
It may not be a refrigerant problem.
Is the freezer fan motor running?
Is there a frost/ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer?
Is the compressor fan motor running?
Is the compressor Running?
These are the first steps to verify before suspecting a refrigerant leak.

If the fan motor is running at the compressor you should first replace the compressor start relay.

Kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works


Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.
