This is a compressor problem, and chances are there for this to worsen if not attended promptly.

SOURCE: Whirlpool 20.8 Top won't cool neither refrigerator nor freezer

that's about right, if the compressor is drawing more than 4 amperes, then it is no good.

A reminder also to check the condenser for dirt and debris that could have accumulated at the front, this is a major contributor to compressor failure. check also the fan near the compressor. it should be running at the same time the compressor runs.

that's nice to hear from whirlpool....

good luck tapperal,

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: TRUE COOLER COMPRESSOR CYCLES ON 45 SECONDS AND OFF FOR 2 MIN.

The unit has a temperature swing adjustment screw located behind the thermostat plate.If you remove the knob and the face plate you will see it,It can be adjusted there.It may also be the thermostat bulb is going bad or touching something and giving a false signal to the compressor.

Supco has a three in one start kit that can help the compressor to run longer. Although the Freon circulatory system may be clogged and the compressor is overheating internally tripping the thermal overload.

Will not stop running


Are you referring to the compressor not shutting off down below or the evaporator fan inside the cooling area not shutting off? Evaporator fan always runs the compressor is controlled by the thermostat you could have a bad thermostat if the compressor never shuts off.

My True TD 50 18 beer cooler does not cool beers


If you hear a clicking noise coming from the compressor there is about a 80% chance that the compressor is dead. But you'll have to call someone out to be sure.
If the fan motor behind the grill is running (condenser fan) then the compressor should be running and vice versa. If the compressor is hot as a pistol and clicking and the fan motor is not working then it may cool down if you shut it off and you might just have a bad fan motor. With power turned off the condenser fan motor should freely spin. Compressor have a 5 year warranty from the manufacture not including labor and additional materials. Hope this helps.

Compressor not starting up just clicking in and out


The compressor, when unable to start goes off on overload, when the overload cools, the compressor tries to start again. A"hard start kit " which is a relay, capacitor and overload can be tried to get the compressor running

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

Side/side #msd2142arw not cooling. evaporator fan fine. compressor comes on for 3 seconds and shuts off and repeats aprox. every 30 seconds. the compressor does get warm. help!


The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

  • The compressor

  • The Thermostat

  • The overload, relay, or capacitor

  • The defrost timer

  • The condenser fan motor

Magic chef not cooling


The compressor is shutting down because it is drawing too much power and overheating. The clixon detects this and shuts off all power till it cools - then it resets and supplies power back to compressor until it overheats and problem repeats itself.
So what is responsible for overheating? Well, if there is an obstruction in the cooling system (high pressure side), the compression goes up past spec and the motor labors and slows down, creating less back emf, and increasing current consumption > then overheats and turns off. OR, if some of the the motor windings have had the insulation melt off, then the motor has less resistance than designed, more current goes through and again it overheats and shuts down. In this case your motor is fubar and needs to be replaced.

Freezer and refrigerator not cooling. Makes a buzzing noise


hello sbarrry2 it sound like the motor that is running continously is the condenseer fan and the buzzing and then the click would be the compressor trying to start up and going off on overlaod. shut the unit off at the swiutch, let it cool down (3) hours possibly and then try to turn it back on. this should work. Thanks for using FixYA
