My magic chef model ctn1911gew is not working properly makes a clicking sound and is not cold at all and fan on bottom is not running. please help


Are we talking about the fan near the compressor? It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. It will click trying to turn on untill the over load gets hot Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is not running could itself be the problem. It is needed to keep the freon, and the compressor cooled.

Fridge stopped working light on motor not running


Robert,
Need more info. I am unaware of a "light on the motor". There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. Normally none of these have a light. If you are referring to the light inside the box that turns on with opening the door AND the frig is not cooling, we must go to the very start. 1. Verify power at outlet.
2. Do you see (or inside the box- hear) the two fans running. 3. Is the compressor smoothly vibrating?

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.


Jason,
MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

Plug in frig starts cooling will make a thin layer of ice in trays and frig fresh food will start to cool down then cooling stops and fan is still running. Unplug wait 30 min plug back in and starts...


That problem may take a little work finding but that is no problem if you can pull away from the wall and unplug. Then remove the lower cover that covers the compressor area so you can feel the top of the compressor. Feeling the top of the compressor tells me several things like if it has been running all this time or if very hot it will tell me that the compressor has been short cycling. Compressors short cycle for a few reasons and one is the start components photo #8 and #4 in this photo here=> ASD2628HES_COMPRESSOR_Components Another reason may be the evaporator fan or the condenser fan #20 in the photo link above are not staying on or there is an airflow restriction. When the compressor runs there should be a good steady flow of warm air from below the refrigerator. That warm air is the warm conditions being removed from inside your refrigerator. The most likely reason for this is the start relay/overload or number 4 in the photo has become defective. That is this=> Relay Overload with Start Capacitor

With that part out and able to get the=> 65889-4 15uf run_capacitor
out I would carry the run capacitor to a local refrigeration dealer and ask if they would test your run capacitor for free. I will be here if you should have questions beyound what I have mentioned here today, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a frigidaire gallery series frig side by side with ice and water in door. The frig part won't stay cold. It also seems to take long time to make ice. The frig part works ok for awhile and then...


Check for two things. Look under the refrigerator and make sure the compressor fan is turning.

Second, check inside the freezer for proper operation of the fan that moves cool air throughout the freezer and refrigerator. If this fan is working, you can probably hear it. It should be behind an access plate in the freezer (near the top). Remove the plate and look at the fan. If it's not turning, you will have to replace the fan motor.

Old 2nd frig stopped working, no cooling, no compressor running, only light in compartment. Any breakers or things to check?


Of course check breakers, then unplug unit from wall for several hours (let unit compressor cool) then plug back in. If after plugging it in you continue to hear a "clicking" sound on rear of unit either start device on compressor is bad or compressor its self is gone.

GE HSS25GFP not cooling at all


May be a problem related to the compressor. Click may be the overload protector on the compressor tripping. If it is a problem with the compressor it should be covered by warranty if it is only three years old.

Frig and feezer stopped working


It sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor.If the problem isn't that then you need a compressor.
