Replace the control board, first check the relay and make sure you are getting power at the relay first then replace the control board

I have no cold air in my refrigerator or Freezer. It defrosted everything.


Condenser Coils are Dirty
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the condenser coils may be dirty. The condenser is like a radiator and must stay clean in order to dissipate the heat which was removed from the inside of the refrigerator. As the coils get dirtier the refrigerator becomes less efficient, which makes it work harder to cool down. If the coils are dirty enough, the unit will never be cold enough and will not be able to cool the inside of the refrigerator to the proper temperature.
Evaporator Fan Motor
If the refrigerator is not cold enough, the evaporator fan motor might have failed. Every refrigerator has a set of coils called an evaporator. The refrigerator may have one or more evaporator fan motor(s) depending on the model and evaporator locations. The evaporator fan motor circulates the cold air from the coils thru the compartment. If there is only one evaporator it is in the freezer side. If the fan is not working, no cold air will get to the refrigerator compartment. The freezer may still get cold.
Condenser Fan Motor
If the refrigerator is not cold enough there might be something caught in the condenser fan motor blade, or the condenser fan motor might be defective. The condenser fan motor draws air over the condenser coils to cool them. The condenser fan motor is located underneath the refrigerator near the back. Pull the refrigerator out from the wall and remove the access panel to access it.
Start Relay
If the refrigerator is not cold enough, the start relay may be defective. The start relay is a small device mounted to the side of the compressor. It provides power to the run winding along with the start winding for a split second at start-up to help get the compressor started. If the start relay is defective the compressor may run intermittently or not at all and the refrigerator will not get cold enough. The start relay should be replaced if defective.
Temperature Control Thermostat
If the refrigerator does not get cold enough the temperature control thermostat might be defective. The thermostat allows power to flow through to the compressor, evaporator fan and condenser fan. If the cooling system fans and compressor are running, but the refrigerator or freezer is not cooling correctly check for an airflow or defrost system problem.
Start Capacitor
If the refrigerator isn't cold enough the compressor might be having difficulty starting. The start capacitor serves as a battery to give the compressor a little boost during start-up. If the start capacitor is burned out the compressor might not be able to start and run as often as it should. Test the start capacitor first with a capacitance meter, they don't fail often. If it's defective, replace it.
Thermistor
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the thermistor might be defective. The thermistor is a sensor which monitors the air temperature. It is connected to the control board. If the thermistor is defective the refrigerator does not cool or may cool continuously.
Temperature Control Board
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the temperature control board might be defective. The temperature control board provides the voltage to the fan motors and compressor. These boards are often misdiagnosed. Check all other components to be certain this is the cause of the problem.
Compressor
If the refrigerator is not cold enough, the compressor might be defective. The compressor is a motor which compresses the refrigerant and circulates the refrigerant through the evaporator and condenser coils. There are several other components which are more likely to be defective if the compressor doesn't work. If the compressor itself is defective a licensed professional will need to replace it.
Main Control Board
If the refrigerator is not cold enough the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check the defrost system, cooling fans, and cooling controls first.

Compressor on freezer running but not cooling


Dependingmon the length of run time will determine the problem. If the compresser cycles on and off within a couple of minutes then you are looking at a bad compresser. If it runs for 5-10 minutes then cycles off, you have a plugged off condenser or dead condenser fan motor, in which case do not run the fridge until the motor is replaced and cleaned. If the compresser runs for hour or so with no cooling effect then you may have a plugged off cap tube which means a repair man will need to take care of that. If the compresser cycles every 10-30min with a little cooling in the freezer then you are looking at a bad thermostat. Hope this helps

My Rreezer is working but the refigerator is warm .


Hi


Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer ( evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.

There can be many factors for the no cooling factor: the condenser coils could be blocked with dust, the condenser fan could be bad or stuck, the freezer fan could be stuck or bed, the freezer coils could be blocked with frost because the self-defrost system is not working or the compressor is not running because of a bad relay etc.

If the compressor is constantly running (not cycling on/off).
You can usually hear them also you should be able to feel it vibrating and it should be warm.
If it is running all the time and not cooling down properly then you may be low on freon.

The metal bar that runs down between the fridge and the freezer is very hot. The fridge and freezer still work.


Under normal operation, the metal separator should be warm to prevent condensation from forming. Since yours is getting too hot, the condenser fan is likely not working. The condenser fan moves air through the unit, cooling the compressor and maintaing a desired operating temperature. You can check this by removing the lower panel at the rear of the refrigerator. You should see a small fan near the compressor (the round black unit). The cause could be a bad fan motor or a bad main control board. Unplug the fan and test if there is voltage going to the fan while the compressor is on. If not, the likely cause is a bad controller board. If current is present, the fan motor is bad. In either case it is an easy fix. The parts are available on-line.

RS652 fridge stopped working overnight tripping circuit breaker


Hi,

Turn it off completely and let is cool over night and then plug it back in and see if the fan runs and if the compressor runs...

If the compressor runs but not the fan then check for voltage going to the fan and replace as needed...if there is no voltage then trace bad to see if the main board is bad...

Start relay and capacitor may be bad if the compressor does not run after getting completely cooled down...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a greatplace to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can dorather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Unit not cooling down,compressor running,condenser fan running. suction line just cool,condenser line barely warm.


Check if evaporator fan is running. Is there any frost buildup on freezers evaporator cover? If so you have a defrost problem (bad heater, defrost thermostat, thermister, defrost timer or circuit board ). If no frost and the freezer is warm then you most likely have a sealed system problem(leak, restriction, bad compressor) which is costly to repair.
