The fridge turns on (power) light is on the compresor is on but the fan on the freezer is not powering on. i cleaned the fridge and may have got water on some of the parts i took the back panel off in the freezer when i cleaned it and the section that has the light and seting switch in the refrigirating area. i left it off for a week to dry off. when i turned it back on it would not cool at all. can you tell me why its not cooling the fridge or freezer at all ?

Try pressing light blub switch whist doors are open as fan will only start when doorsclosed. If compreesor is running but not chilling it is either the compreesor has gone and wont be pumping or it has lost its refigerant. Hope this helps

I hope someone reads this: My Frigidaire upright (FFU17), 3-years-old, stopped freezing. Light on, compressor running but no fan. Took everything out and spun the defrost timer a few times; still didn't work. Couldn't find a reset button. With no time to get it fixed before everything defrosted, I was ready to replace it immediately. Then I thought of one last trick; I gave it a severe beating with the palm of my hand -- the fan started. Thank you, Jesus.

Freezer not freezing, and the panel between the fridge and the freezer gets very hot


The condensor fan motor is probably not running. The condensor fan keeps the compresor cooled, if the compresor gets to hot, it shuts down until it cools off and tuns back on, but will not keep temp. Heat exchange lines go in the panel between the doors to serve as a heater so the doors dont freeze shut, but when the compresor overheats, so do those lines. That would be why that panel gets so hot. Both problems will be resolved with a new condensor fan motor ( located by the compresor).

Constant clicking sound coming from power box amana fridge


When you heard the click and the compresor stops ,check if it's very hot , if yes the compresor is of on overload and this could happend because 1 the condenser coil is dirty ,2 the relay is bad or 3 the compresor has a problem .Also check if behind the kick plate there's a timer (some units have it there or next to the cold control ) that could cause a problem too.

Compressor doesn't run


If the fan located next to the compresor works that means that the compresor relay is bad or the compresor burned out.

Doesn't cool either fridg or freezer, Lights and fan work...checked the relay....it's ok too. Still won't cool...any ideas?


when you turn on your fridge does your compressor work get a voltage wire reader its like a pen you put it to a live wire if ithas power it will beep if your compressor doesnt start and your pen goes beeps than you need a starter which is a kit that has overload and the relay for the compresor its like 20 dollars very very easy to install if you hear your compressor working than you have a freeon leak

Freezer or fridge stopped cooling. Can not hear compressor kick on


If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.

Dometic rm2611 quit on the road today all lights


If the fridge is complete dead (no lights no fan, no compresor,etc.) looks like there's not power in the unit.Check if theres power in the oulet if you know how , if you don't put the fridge in an oulet that you know is power , if still doing nothing probably the cord is broken or burned and the power doesn't go throught it from the oulet to the fridge.

Fridge freezer not working/power ok,


If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.

No light in fridge compartment, Not freezing. Light in freezer co


Your door switch is bad.  When doors are opened, the fan stops.  No cooling.  When it closes, fan starts.  Bulb is just an indicator of no power to unit...probably burned out contact in switch.

Samsung Fridge Freezer (Freezer on top)Model SR-52NXA wont cool


Depends a bit on whether the compressor really is running, or if it's just humming because it's got power on the run coil, but not on the start coil.

Have a careful listen to the compressor. If it's making the trilling or gurgling sounds that go with a working compressor, then your problem is probably one of lost gas. Fixing this is not a do-it-yourself job.

If the compressor sounds like it's stalled, the problem may lie with the starter. Replacements are usually cheap enough for it to be worth fitting a new one just to see if it works.
