Compressor won't turn on. Lights turn on. Won't cool anymore.

Frig. & freezer stopped working. Unplugged it, then plugged it back in. Heard water solenoid valve. Cond fan turned on for a short period of time but not compressor. Heard sounds at ice maker. Fan even turned on in freezer. Checked connections on compressor. Looked fine. Checked backside of Control mother board. Looked fine. Any ideas what I can check or try next?

    I checked for voltage on all three compressor terminals and did not have any. From ground to each terminal and across each terminal. Where is defrost timer located?

Make sure that the defrost timer is not stuck in defrost mode also the compress may be stuck. you can purchase a compressor booster kit from your local appliance parts store for about $15.00.

Maytag Refrigerator/freezer alarm will not turn off.


check that tha fan beside the compressor in lower back is running and that condenser tubing is lint free, also check for icing on frezer back panel if so you could have a defrost problem, if all is good you may have a freon leak inside the frig walls as tubing is all metal and will rust when sitting for a long time in storage due to moisture build up from been warm outside and cool inside during normal usage in which case you may need to change the appliance at that point you will need a service call to find if there's still freon inside your frig and of coarse your control may not read the properly..

Stopped cooling


My refrgerator a Kenmore, model 106-71182101, with ice maker stopped cooling and freezing.I vacuumed the condenser coils, and
fan in the rear bottom, along with any other debris. I unplugged the frig because the compressor was very HOT!.Question? Could the compressor have a Locked-Rotor? If so what can I do to loosen it.

Unplugged frig overnite once I plugged back in made a gurgeling sound whenever I opened the door what would that be?


Usually that is caused by a bad defrost heater thermostat or defrost timer. Failure to automatically defrost is the cause of freezing up.
If you don't feel up to doing the work yourself you should have an appliance repair shop look at it.

The gurgling is caused by water in the catch pan under the fridge. When you defrosted it some of the water made it into the drip pan (and maybe overflowed onto the floor). The fan inside the compressor area under and behind the freezer may be splashing in the excess water in the drip pan. This by itself is not a real problem since it is designed to automatically evaporate the water drained during automatic defrosting, but the excess water and potential overflow onto the floor can become a problem.

FRIGIDAIRE FRS20ZRG STOPPED WORKING AFTER MOVING IT, LIGHTS STOPPED THE NEXT DAY


It may have been defrosting on a timed cycle when the compressor stopped. If any water was present at the time, it may have seeped into the electrics. Check the fuse and you have power to the on/off switch and thermostat.. If fuse blown, check all is dried out before plugging back in.

Hi,
Unfortunately there is no one thing that I can give you as the cause...to find the problem will take a great deal of detective work or either your part or a service person.s part....
The problem could be a varied as a plugged condenser coil to a failed compressor or mother board..or a refrigeration leak...it will take a process of elimination to figure out the eaxact cause of your problem.

Many of these things will need a trained technician to diagnose...


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

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Lights are on but nothing else


Checked the switch in the freezer and it was bad. Odd time for it to go out, but it was not working and it would work intermittently if you shook it.
