    If you are in the states EPA guidelines state that the units must have the refrigerant removed by a qualified refrigeration tech with the tools and equipment to recover/reclaim the refrigerant. I know this will be expensive but not nearly as expensive as the fines from the government will be.

The refrigerant must be recoverd or drawn into the condensing unit and the service valves closed.
If you do not have service valves that will close, you must recover the refrigerant.

Noisy compressor?


My Gdm 12 was doing the very same thing. Remove the from grill plate by taking out the 4 screws below the door. This will expose the compressor mounting plate . While the compressor is running, and is at its loudest, loosen or tighten the two front hold down bolts until the noise goes away. Most likely, when you cooler was moved or transported off the shipping pallet, it was bent slightly allowing contact between the bottom of the compressor, and the mounting plate. Hope this helps.

My fridge freezer (Hotpoint FFA70) defrosted of its own accord. The lights are still lit at the top but is there anything I can do?


Hello, Your freezer is supposed to go into a defrost cycle every 8-12 hours. By doing this it defrosts any ice build up on the evaporator coil. Question though are you stateing both the fridge and freezer are wam in your unit? If this were the case then you would locate the compressor which in most units you would have to pull the unit away from the wall and remove the lower panel in order to access the compressor area. You can use the palm of your hand against the side of the compressor to assure if the compressor is running or not. If the compressor were not to be running then on most refrigerators on the side of the compressor is a small box if you were to remove the box this would give you access to the start relay and overload for the unit which is what starts the compressor. You would first unplug the machine and remove the small box. Next you would disconnect the wires going to the relay. After disconnecting the wires you would then remove the relay and overload off the side of the compressor. You would then inspect the relay for any blackend electrical burns and if there were none then you would shake the relay and if you heard a rattle in the relay this would be a sure sign that the relay need to be replaced. If you have any questions or find that the compressor is running when you use the palm of your hand on the compressor message me back for further diagnosis as well as your complete model number. I await your reply Thanks

My LG LSC27910TT refrigerator stopped working suddenly


Hi, It's either the start device on the compressor or you have a bad compressor. You'll have to pull it away from the wall and take the bottom back panel off to check the compressor. It will likely be real hot to the touch from what you described happening. If there is a little white colored box on the left side take that off and remove the wires, etc. and shake it... if it rattles and debris falls out then that's the problem. It's fairly common and they make a kit to replace it with a better designed part that's real easy to install yourself. If your compressor has a label on it with a blue indian head symbol, then you're out of luck as that brand pretty much sucks and is destroyed by heat. It would mean a new compressor and then you'd be lucky if the new one even worked from the factory. Avoid those Tecumseh compressors at all cost.

You have a bad relay . Replace the " white box " ( it just pushes onto the compressor ) with maybe a small wire to secure it . Take your complete model number , including the 3 numbers in front of the ones you gave , to make sure you get the correct part .

Hotpoint refrigerator CTX 18G makes noise when compressor comes on. I opened the the back bottom panel and the noise went away when I unpluged the plug on the far left (as viewed from the back) was...


No. This is not affecting the operational value of the compressor at all. It is just an annoyance, at most. I would recommend to inspect the entire unit for other noise enablers, as well.Here are a few areas that will cause abnormal noises in your unit.


Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.

If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.

Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.


The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.

Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.


This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

Frig shutters and makes noise when the cooling cycle shutoff.


It is probably caused from one or more of the four rubber bushings that mount your compressor to the refrigerator frame. The bushings wear over time and causing the compressor bracket to have a little play. Then when the compressor stops it moves the frame slightly bumping against the mounting bolt causing a slight to moderate sounding clunk when stopping, Also check a lines and cords as a cord refrigeration line near the compressor or fram can also cause the problem.

GSS25JEMC won't get cold


If the compressor doesn't run , but the fan next to it does , then the board is the problem . If you can remove the board , and turn it over , look under the small black boxes , but on the soldered side , and you should see a spot where the solder has heated and moved away from the small terminal . "Resolder" this spot , and reinstall the board and the compressor should come on .

Does outside temperature affect performance of freezer


Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when
the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food
compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have
long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control.
This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start
to defrost.
There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301
and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising
how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater
