If you tipped the refrig on it side to move it you must leave it unplygged for 24 hrs before plugging in.  Does the fan work?  If not see if something is stopping it.

Hi. We moved to a house with an integrated Teka A-FC1359 Fridge/Freezer. It was working fine. We switched it off 3 months ago. Now we've swithched it back on but it's not working.


It can be issue with faulty compressor capacitor.From main power outlet the power goes to capacitor beside compressor and from there power goes to compressor motor,then after that all unit works.May be that capacitor got shorted or loose from its actual connection.Or other possibility is faulty power wire of refrigerator.Get the wire checked with continuity tester to confirm its not broken in between.

I have a noisy cooling fan. I have cleaned and removed all the dust from the vents in the compressor compartment, but the fan still make a squeeking sound. Can the fan be oiled or greased or should it...


Is the area between your fridge and freezer smoking hot? Can you smell the rubber seals melting? Does your fridge squeak like crazy? You have an issue with your condenser fan. You can save about $50 by fixing the fan motor yourself. I'm no engineer but this was an easy fix. 1) Unplug the fridge. 2) Take off the lower back panel covering the condenser and fan. 3) Unplug the fan (on the top left from the fan. 4) Slide the fan out of the bracket 5) Take the fan blade off. (This will take the most time and TLC, it is glued on) 6) Take the two screws out of the back of the housing. **The fan motor should be free of the housing and blade** 7) Remove the two screws from the fan motor housing. 8) Pull the shaft out of the motor and clean all parts with some oil and a rag. 9) Make sure all moving parts are well oiled then put the shaft back in the motor housing. 10) Replace the motor housing screws 11) Replace the motor into the fan housing and replace the screws. 12) Slide the fan blade back onto the shaft (I used some super glue to help hold it in place) 13) Slide the fan housing back into place 14) Plug the fan into the socket 15) Plug in the fridge to make sure your fix worked (it may take a minute to kick on) 16) Replace the lower cover

Turn thermostat on, cooling fans kick in, i can feel compressor with my hand moving but no cooling inside freezer or fridg


Hi, you say the fan in the freezer kicks on? You also have a fan located by your compressor and coil which is the condenser fan motor and condenser coil. This fan must also be running when the compressor is on.Make sure that the coil down below is clean on the front of it as it draws air across this coil to keep the internal head pressures down. Check all of these things. The small copper line coming off the compressor, discharge line should be almost hot. The larger of the lines is the suction line and will be very cool, almost condensating . If not, you may have developed a small freon leak which will cause these problems. Make sure that everything I said is working and clean, and if the small motor in the rear bottom is not running, you can get a new one at a appliance parts house and 2 wires will replace it. Do all of this and keep me posted.

Moved refrig this morning and now it is not cooling... freezer works great


Hih, Check and see if something has stopped the condenser fan motor down by the compressor from turning. Sometimes this happens in a move.
Also make sure the controls didn't get turned to wrong settings. Make sure evaporator fan motor is working in freezer and that there is no frost building up on the rear panel.
Just some ideas to help you.
lease let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Motor stopped running but lights & ice maker OK


this is most likely a bad condenser fan motor. pull refrig from wall remove compartment cover on rear and inspect the fan that cools the compressor. it is either jammed or seized up and needs replacing. while your at it you may want to clean the condenser coils as well they most likely have dust and lint build up on them. this motor is fairly easy to replace yourself if your mechanicaly inclined the part number should be 833697blade and can be purchased online, at a local appliance parts supply house, or thru a sears parts and servie center near you.
to keep the unit working until you get it repaired you can put a house fan blowing on the compressor area to keep it cool and this will get temps back to normal and cool down that center frame as well.
Thanks Peyton..

Freezer not working properly


Sometimes when movers use dollies to move a frig they will put it underneath the condenser fan motor and bend the housing into the fan blade. If this fan doesn't turn, the compressor will turn off on the heat sensing overload before it has a chance to cool everything inside.

Side by side wirlpool fridge freezer not cooling down


make sure the fan motors are running. there is one near the compressor in the bottom rear and one in the freezer area. also be sure the compressor is running. being it was in storage there could be rust on the motors or possibly a mouse could have chewed through some wires.

Boshe kgu3220 not working


There is a fan motor that blows the cold from the freezer to the refrigerator side. Listen for the inside fan when the compressor is running, and look to see if an adjustable air passage has become shut.
