Question about Kenmore 74522 Top Freezer Refrigerator
The compressor is hot and the copper line is cold but the fridge wont cool down. The small fan is blowing air on the compressor but the fridge isn't running.. We cleaned all of the dust out from underneath and dusted the guts.. Help!!
First thing I would check is the evaporator fan in the freezer to make sure its working. About the copper lines, one should be cold to the touch and the other should be hot. if both are cold your compressor may be locked up. Or if its a whirlpool build unit I would also check to make sure the relay on the ompressor is good.Pull it off the compressor and shake it. If you hear like a lot of little pebles shaking in it its bad and need replacement. that was a common problem with some whirlpool units. If that is good remove the back of the freezer and check the evaporator coils to see if there is a frost pattern on it. If not your compressor like I said may be bad or you have a refrigerant leak and there is no more gas in it. Good luck
