Re: frigerator not cooling not cooling at all

Our LG refrigerator wasn't cooling either. With ours it turned out to be that the light wasn't turning off when the door was closed! It seemed unbelievable at first, but the heat from the light bulbs was heating the whole refrigerator section to just about the same temp as the outside room. Here's the key, 'though. If this is the case, the fridge section is warm, but the freezer is cold.

RF265AARSXAC The freezer is not freezing.

looks as evaporator fan is working. have you ever clean condensor under the fridge. possibility it is pluged with dust and not allowing compressor to cool down.
Also check the fan at the back of the fridge beside the compressor. see if it is working

That is the compressor.
The relay is out on the compressor a. Needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. This is a pic of a Hard start relay

Refrigerator freezer not cooling or freezing took off back cover. fan operates. compressor is hot, when pluged in humming noise then drops out.

. 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.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

When the frig is turned on the frig light blinks and the alarm light flashes no compressor runing

That's a sign of an overload on the frigerator's compressor. The cooling fan might not be working. Compressor needs to be checked by your technisian.

My compressor is still running but only blowing cool not cold

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, what would seem to be the problem is that there is a refrigerant leak hence even if the compressor is running, there is no refrigerant being compressed and flows through the system to cool things down.

Most compressors could be checked with a clamp ammeter to determine their starting and running current which would indicate if they are in need of replacement or not.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Refrigerator problem

3 most common things that cause this are a defrost problem (will notice frost build up on back freezer panel), bad evaporator fan motor (should hear fan running in the freezer), or bad damper (vent to the fridge section). If no frost and fan is running check for air flow out of the vent. It should be at the top of the fridge section.
