It does sound like the compressor is locked up or one lead (wire) to the compressor is broken or burned in two or the run capacitor is bad. A service tech. could determine if the capacitor is ok and/or check the compressor by installing a hard start kit. If that works ok. If not then you need to replace the compressor. Either way I'd advise calling a certified Technician. This isn't someting you can do yourself.

A/c cluch not incaging


Hi, the most likely problem is the system is low on gas. There is a pressure switch that will disengage the compress clutch if the system is empty or very low on gas. This unfortunately means you have a leak you'll have to get checked out. Less likely is compressor clutch wire has become disconnected. Aalso

We have an 11 year old fisher-paykel fridge .For past 6 months several times a day it makes a loud knocking noise


If this noise happens when the compressor turns on and shuts off it is called a compressor knock. All the internal workings of the compressor are supported by springs, over time the springs wear out and become weak. When the compressor stops or starts the tourq causes the internal parts to hit aginst the casing of the compressor. Sounds like a clunk clunk clunk noise. If you can deal with the noise do not go out and replace the compressor cause it will work just fine like that.

I think I have a water problem? I hear a clunking noise at various times from I think the right bottom of the unit. Water and Ice seem to be working fine.


Hi.

The clunking noise is the compressor. It usually means that one of the internal mounts that secure the compressor motor is gone. The whole compressor needs replacement.
First ensure that the fridge is at level. A not well leveled unit's compressor can make noise.
If fridge level is OK, call the Whirlpool customer service number listed on manual. The compressor has a long warranty. If the fridge is the one in question you may still be covered for the part.

Regards.

The compressor should turn on after it cools. It shuts down if it overheats to prevent damage/fire. The compressor itself could be bad but more than likely the fan is dead.

I have a 1995 24.5 cu. ft. GE Profile refrigerator. When it shuts off there is a loud clunk. I think it could be the compressor turning off. Other than that it seems to be working fine. Is this a serious...


The compressor is sitting on springs inside a metal case. When it stops, the centrifical force is absorbed by these springs. If one or more springs become weak or break, the compressor hits against the outer case a time or two. (CLUNK CLUNK clunk) There is really nothing you can do about it, short of replacing the compressor. (read big bucks) NOTE: If you take a new compressor and give it a shake, you will hear the same clunk. If the noise is really bothering you, I'd say after 15 years, it's time to move that refrig to the basement and get a new energy star model for your kitchen. (the old one most likely has several more years worth of clunking before it truely dies)

Ac compressor disengages 98 honda crv


Most compressor has a speed sensor to compare with the cranshaft sensor to prevent the compressor locked up.When you raised the RPM, after 15 sec, if the 2 sensors are not in synch then the computer thinks that the compressor is locked up so it disable the cluctch that was why your AC stops working. Check out your Compressor speed sensor. Good luck.
