Motor stopped running days after move

Three yr old side by side (warranty ran out after 1 yr, dang it) has power, lights, but motor is not running... completely silent and lost all food stored in it due to not cooling. And this happened days after a move across town.Is it an expensive fix? Fortunately it is a second fridge, and we still have use of our primary (albeit smaller) fridge. Thanks for any advise,
Mk

Unfortunatly in most cases it is more expensive to fix than replace. A compressor change is at least 3 hours. The other cost include the compressor, drier, recovery machine, recovery cylinder, silver sodder, torch fees, and so on. The compressor will likely cost around $300. A used fridge in the paper can cost less then $200. Please let me know if you need anymore information.

Frigidaire FEQ1442CESO wont stop beeping


Mine did the same thing. It started right after the warranty ran out. I dealt with it for a long time until 1 day it wouldn't stop running. I saw a couple internet posts about defective circuit boards in this model so I got brave and took mine apart. Once I got the board out and examined it I found 7 or 8 cracked solder joints, including the main power supply to the board. I reheated them with a soldering iron and added a little bit more solder to a couple of them and now my dryer works like the day it was new.

the temp door actuator may not be working, or the door is stuck. see if you can run the temp to cold and hot and see if the motor is trying to move the door. I cant tell you exactly where the door is but I think its on the passenger side.

Load knocking noise


these high efficiency compressors make noise when they are in defrost..you will sometimes hear water running, or tapping noise or even a popping noise. if it happens when its off in defrost.. it will only happen three or four times per day as this is the defrost frequency and nothing can be done without securing the heat exchanger to the suction line ..sometimes these come loose...

Fixable A5 Clippers?


If the power lever (the tab that moves the blade back and forth) is not moving with the blade off, or only moving sometimes, chances are that you have a stripped bakelite gear. Take the two screws out of the cover plate and remove it. Remove the lever (the nylon part that moves the blade) Remove the link (the metal part that the lever connects with). Remove the bakelite gear (the part that the link fits down over). You should then be able to see if the teeth are chewed or worn off to the point that the armature gear will not turn the bakelite gear. If that is the case, replace the gear. Amazon2.gif carries both single speed and 2 speed gears under Oster A5 clipper parts. All these parts should have a light coat, where they move, of lithium grease, and the two pads (one on each side of the lever) should be oiled. You might also check the condition of your brushes (under the caps on each side of the clipper. Take cap off, remove cover from brush, remove spring and brush to see how worn they are).
Good luck.

Venta l44 motor won't run less than a yr. old


I own a 3-year old Venta L44 in which the motor stopped turning the wheels inside. It just sat there humming and eventually got hot. I sent an email to the Venta web site asking if they had a recycling program -- they don't. Instead, they replied (after a few days) stating that the motor was covered under the 10-year warranty. They sent me a new motor which was super easy to install. It didn't cost me a thing. It nows works perfectly.

Dishwasher not pumping the water out?


hi
the larger motor housing underneath the unit is what moves the water around to wash, the smaller pump is the drain pump, if you don't hear that running it is likely in need of replacement. check your paper work for warranty, if it's out of warranty try to find a deal online and it's relatively easy to replace
