Re: U-Line 75R refrigerator compressor does not turn on

The fan and compressor are both controlled by the temperature control behind the grill. (the control with the numbered dial). Unplug the unit, and test the control to see if it has continuity at the full cold setting. This is a simple and inexpensive repair.

Could be the thermostat controller. Here is a link to old U-Line manuals. It has some basic troubleshooting:

Check out the thermostat switch and make sure it is good. U-Line tells me this is a very common problem in older models.

My u-line 75rfb-00 refrigerator wont get cold the light comes on the motor sounds as if its working but it only gets cool not cold ?

Then you need to see if the compressor is running or is it the fan? You migh be hearing the compressor come on for a short while. The fan might not be running. Replace the fan if its not running

Refrigerator compressor motor will not run.

Does the fan work? If yes then the compressor has a relay and overload that might be bad. Or it could be a compressor that is bad. If its a compressor then you will need to have a tech verify that it is the problem. If nothing is running then it could be a thermostat thats not switching it on. Let me know if you need any more help with it.

First, reset the breaker. If the unit restarts, you're okay. If possible, change to another good circuit of comparable rating...generally at least 15-20 amperes...sometimes the breakers go bad. You may have a bad compressor or compressor start relay. We can only know about that after the breaker is ruled out as a cause. Oh, and be sure the plug contacts are not corroded. If they are: use a little steel wool to clean them and remove all strands when you're done.
