SOURCE: compressor runs constantly, fridge cools, but not as cold as new

If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.

Good Luck and hope this gets it done for you.

SOURCE: maytag MSD2758DR side by side, not cooling at all

Hi,
You can start with replacing the start capacitor and relay to see if the compressor will run again, but you have about a 50 -50 chance that the compressor has gone bad and will need to be replaced....

Maytag GS2121PADW, fridge running continually, does not switch itself on & off. Could it be the condensor fan motor, as I notic it does not go at all.


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Hi Nick,
I would plug in a new start relay. The start relay is on the side of the compressor.
If the new relay still will not start the compressor then the compressor has been damage from the power outage.

Hi, freezer took a dump two days ago, fridge was still fine. Then 12 hours later the fridge dumped out too. The compressor is hot and the relay looking thing with part number nsk 85851 clicks on for 20 sec...


most likely the start device is bad,look at the left wall inside the fridge near the cieling,you should see a model number,call your parts store,give them the model number on the machine,there is other letters after the g and tell them you need a start device.unplug the machine,until you get the part so you don't damage the compressor,it's not cooling anyway and thhe freezer feeds cold air to the fridge side,a fan blows cold air from freezer to fridge so next time if the freezer has a problem the fridge side is gonna have a problem too,unclip the metal clip and slide the start device off,read the instructions and it will tell you how to install the new device

Check the cold control thermostat for continuity.(off/on switch)
When he bypasses the wires at the board ,he also bypasses the thermostat control.

My fridge freezer defrosted n now wont wrk


what you are hearing is the overload kicking in and out. which means bad start relay /bad capacitor/low voltage/bad overload/bad compressor.you can buy a 3in1 to eliminate all but the compressor. and the voltage check them first.

After defrosting the freezer the whole fridge doesn't work (is warm!)


sounds like the compressor is locked up or the relay on the compressor is bad. whats happening is its drawing too much current and cutting out from the overlaod relay. that may be a bad compressor or the start relay. both the overload and the relay are under the black box on the front of the compressor. you will need to check the relay to make sure its good, and also the compressor. there should be a wiring diagram on the back that will tell you how many ohms from terminal to terminal on the compressor. hope it helped if its a newer unit the relays are electronic and if you shake it and hear like little sand pebbles in it most likley its bad and thats why it wont run.
