Fridge troubleshooting


The motor should not be running continuously. If it is, then it is because the internal temps are not going down low enough for the thermostat to shut the compressor down. If the temp is not low enough, the temperature of the coolant returning to the compressor is higher than what it should be and that the cool refrigerant returning to the compressor cools that motor down. If it does not, the motor will over heat and often shut down for cooling.

Ice buildup on the evaporator coils will cause a warmer running fridge. If the unit has a self defroster then it is not working and responsible for the anomaly.

Motor not running Refrigerator not cooling


There are three possibilities why the compressor motor is not running. #1. The thermostat switch is not closing to turn the motor on. #2. The compressor motor is bad. #3 The defrost timer is engaged, preventing the compressor motor from starting.

Solution for #1: Locate the thermostat switch behind the console in the refrigerator. It is attached to the freezer temperature adjusting knob. If you jump the switch out, the compressor motor should start. If it does, replace this switch.

Solution for #2: get another refrigerator. It is not worth repairing.

Solution for #3: Turn the freezer temperature switch to the coldest setting. Locate the defrost timer in the console on the ceiling of the refrigerator compartment. Look for position labels like "cool control" and "compressor". Jump between these two wires. The compressor should start. If it does, replace this module.

Fridge runs good for 3 to 4 hours.then turns on but does not cool. i unpug for about an hour and then cools good for another 3 to 4 hours


Are you sure the compressor is turning back on. I would bet that you have a tecumseh compressor in your fridge and when they get hot they don't restart till they cool. The bearings in them go bad. We replace those with Embraco compressors. You unplug it and let it cool down and that is why it restarts.
