Hello 1clevergirl - Make sure you have cleaned the unit's coils and behind the toe grille at the bottom/front o f the refrigerator. If you are not hearing the compressor running and it is not cooling contact a service professional immediately. The compressor is constantly meant to go on and off frequently to keep unit at a constant temperature. In this case the refrigerator could possibly have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system including the evaporator fan.

How frequently should the compressor run on a fridge?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The model number provided does not register. Your model number is located on the inside wall of your fresh food section.

Your freezer is your only source of cooling. It will meet its setting before meeting the refrigerator temperature.

The normal setting are -2 to +2 degrees F. for the freezer and 35 -40 degrees F. for your fresh food section.

Your freezer will go about 10 degrees F. above the set temperature. Then when it reaches 10 degrees F. below the set temperature the compressor will kick in.

You have condensing coils either under your unit or a canister in the back which gets ride of the heat. When the condensing coil is plugged up with dust, this could affect your cooling by as much as 40 degrees.

I do not think this is your total problem.

Feel the face of your separator wall between your freezer and fresh food section. Is it hot?

Your problem is your condenser fan in the lower right back of you unit is burned out.

So, you can not dissipate the heat.

Remove the lower back cover. Take a common household fan to blow air under your unit.

Your compressor is running to make up for the heat that the condenser fan can not dissipate.

FREEZER PROBLEMS ELECTROLUX ICON MODEL E32AR75FPS2 READS AN E ON THE FREEZER CONTROL HAS LIGHTS BUT NO COMPRESSOR OR FANS


Hi - Typically error code E on Electrolux freezer indicates an error with thermistor. Since the compressor does not kick on, I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately and properly diagnose freezer.

All the coils on the unit outside froze up


Hello, if the inside fan was not running then the evaporator coil cannot absorb enough heat to vaporize the refrigerant, and the suction line will freeze including the compressor. Liquid refrigerat instead of vapor passes thru the suction line into the compressor. Lack of airflow or a low refrigerant charge is what will cause the line to freeze. In your case it was no airflow

I changed the air compressor and the dashboard control panel last year and it has done ok. Now the temp. fan and the compressor fan won't kick in and the air compressor won't kick in also. Checked all...


You say temp fan?If you mean the cooling fans,then the ac is out of freon most likely,the freon has to be in the system,and enough to kick the compressor on,therefore turning the cooling fan on.

A/C UNIT FANS BLOWS NO COLD AIR COMPRESSOR KICKS ON THEN OFF


check fins in the condenser coils (the fins on the outside part) for obstructions or alot of bent fins. should be free and clear. but chances are the freon level is low. can be serviced, but may be cheaper to replace.

Not cooling


Sometimes when the evaporator fan goes out, it takes part of the motherboard also. (part number WR55X10552, which also subs into a WR55X10656) If this is the case, I would not expect the refrig to be running either. (If your compressor still runs, check door switch.)
