The compressor with a picture of an Indian, its a techumseh. Is the compressor running? If not, could be stuck in defrost mode. Since you have looked at the compressor, there is two lines that go to it. If there is an oil cooler, then 4. Follow the line, smaller of the two that goes to the condensor, rad. With the fridge running, use your hand to feel how hot it is, if you find it hot enough that you can't leave you hand on that line, then its an inneficient compressor.

Frig or freeser not cold


If it is your freezer, check to make sure that the air vents inside the freezer are not blocked by food. Putting too much food in an blocking the air vents will prevent the freezer from freezing. Air needs to circulate inside the freezer for it to work properly. This can also cause excess freezer ice collecting on freezer or in foods. Dust and lint will collect under and behind a frig. Pull the frig out from the wall, unplug it. Check for lint under and on the back of it. If it has accumulated some, vacuum it all off and plug it back in and wait a while to see if it gets cold. The fan pulls lint and dust under the frig and it stops the cooling system. If this doesn't work, it may need the freon (can't spell it correctly) stuff replaced. If these don't work, you need to call

I have a Roper side by side and the freezer is not freezing solid and the frig. is barely cold. The strip between the frig. and freezer and the outer side of the freezer side are VERY hot to touch.


this is due to the compressor fan is not running unplug the unit and check the compressor fan by pluging the unit back in do not leave the unit plugged in after you check the compressor fan you will overheat the compressor causing damage to the compressor if you have any further questions message me back most of the time you will have to replace the compressor fan and then the unit will start running perfectly and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future and you have to remove the either cardboard or metal piece protecting the compressor in the back of the machine in order to get at the compressor fan itself Thanks again Rick

Inside the freezer, at the back is another fan that circulates cold air from the freeze through out the fridge. Make sure it's running. Sometimes the blade will slip on the shaft and get jammed, or the motor could be defective.

Just had a new upright Frigidaire freezer delivered two days ago. Plugged it in immediately. It did not get cold after several hours. Turned it off then back on. Unplugged it. Unplugged it for several...


Whenever you get a frig or freezer delivered it is best to wait at least 24hrs (some say 8 hrs) before you plug in. It maybe unknown to you if this was shipped to you in the laying down postion. If it was and you plugged in it will not work because laying down the oil migrated away from the compressor.

Other than that the freezer could have (possible chance but still possible) problems that are out of your control. If you brought it at a retail store you have at least 2 weeks to exchange. Do that a.s.a.p.
Dont bother trying to figure out just exchange!!!

hope this was helpful

Freezer is not freezing on Maytag MZD2766GES


When you lay a refrigerator on its side oil from the compressor can seep out into the tubing and cause a restriction in the sealed system. This will cause only a small amount of cooling to occur and needs a licensed technician to fix it.

Check the compressor.
Unplug for 15-20 min. plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will have to be behind the ref to listen and make sure you hear the compressor start and not just a fan running. If you hear a clicking noise then the compressor relay is bad.

FRIGIDAIRE FRT21PRH Not Freezing


if the evaporator has a full frost pattern it is not your compresser... First I could check your fan motor is it running...if the frost blocks the air flow it will stop cooling.. Next it could be a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary defrost the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks. To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain. The defrost systems is:
HEATER-DEFROST
THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
TIMER-DEFROST
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help

Everything in frig is frozen and it won't turn off.


If the compressor is running non-stop then the temp. control is not telling it that it's "cold enough". If the compressor isn't running non-stop then you should look at the air damper (little window) that lets the freezer air into the refer compartment... if it's stuck open then you will always get cold air pushed into the fridge eventually becoming a freezer in itself.
