Either you have abad comoresor or abad compresor relay ,i will try to replace the relay first(if you don't have away to check the compresor) wich is cheaper (about $20 for the part)If doesn't work the compresor is burned or stuck.

Compressor not working after performing maintenance ( vacuuming out condensor coil/ fan/compressor compartment )


If you have a start relay , remove and shake - if you hear anything it is toast. with a cap either use a cap tester or just replace it and cross your fingers.

How soon after replacing the condensor fan, is it supposed to kick on?


Condensor fan should start when the compressor starts. If the condensor is hot at top and bottom, turn the refrig off and check the fan for power, should spin freely by finger, and coast to a stop.
Good Luck,
Bill

if you mean the compressor isn't running most likely you have a bad start device part 67005560,pull out machine unplug it and remove the bottom back panel,look at compressor,pop off metal clip and remove cover on the side of compressor,slide off the device and shake it,if the device is cooked you'll hear pieces rattling around inside it,install new part,if it still doesn't start could have a bad compressor.

Sub zero 642 refrigerator not cooling


Being a sub zero tech and actually fixing that exact model earlier today I would recommend you call a qualified service tech to come take a look. If not, I'll tell you the steps I would take to isolate the problem. 1) check to see if the refrigerator fan, also called the evaporator fan, is running. Just open the door, hold in the switch next to the light switch and listen. You'll hear it easily if it is. 2) If fan is running remove the grate up top, the one you took off to put the condensor fan motor, and see if the right side compressor is running. Don't always go with if its vibrating its running because the freezer compressor or the condensor fan can cause it to happen. Find the high side, or condensor line which is the smaller that comes out of the compressor in the back and runs up front to the condensor, and feel if its hot. Hot = good, cold = bad. Note that all this can be avoided if you have a set of freon guages because that model has access taps already on them. They are wrapped in yellow. If you have guages unscrew the cap and connect the guages. On the outside numbers the needle should be around the 25-30 on the positive side. If its in the green area, the negative, around the 10 you need some freon, and possibly have a micro-leak that needs repairing. If its down in the -20 to -30 area you have a serious leak, more than likely in the evaporator inside the fridge, and you should relay call a tech. Now if the needle jumps way up to 70 or 80 and the compressor is hot, really bad, call tech. and if it does that and is cold, the compressor is just off. Now if your still with me and stuck through this far i'll give you the cliff notes.
If the temp is 55 that mean the fan inside is running, and that more than likely the compressor. Now here are some questions to ask yourself. Are the condensor coils clean? That would raise the temperature. You just changed the condensor fan motor, did you put the blade back on right? If the air flow is blowing across the compressor in the direction of the freezedr compressor, your blowing really hot air from the condensor across the compressor and your temperature will raise badly. Fan draws air across the compressor and through the condensor. Worse case scenario you jacked the control board up inside, which I dont think is the case either. ** check that fan blade **

My GE GSL 25JFPABS Refrigerator failed yesterday. No Comressor no evap or condensor fan


Fan motor starts with the compressor. Sounds like you need a main board and condenser fan motor. Call GE. It might be covered under warranty. A known issue with certain models. You will also need serial # if you call.

The AC in my 2004 Honda Accord only blows cool air when I am driving at higher speeds. When I drive slow or am stopped, it's warm hair coming out. My mechanic said the compressor isn't working properly...


it is a premature failure, That does indicate a bad/failiing compressor, or low oil charge, to low freon. If you trust the mechanic then go witht he compressor replacement and condensor. Unfortunately most oarts stores/shops require the condesor to be replaced for warranty purposes on compressor replacements.

Uline combo unit. Condensor fan will not run and


You just answered your question. If no fan is running then the compressor will overheat and the compressor goes off on overload. Do you have the evaporator fan running? If yes then replace the condensor fan. Both fans will run at the same time. If the evap fan is not running then the unit must be in defrost. Since its a hotgas defrost the compressor will run.
Hope this helps

Fridge "runs" constantly


unit should shut off when temperature reached ie compressor and fan stop.
condensor is just a grid of pipework
heater only comes on when in defrost cycle

Hot to the touch


Kathy, you probably have a condensor fan that failed. Remove the lower back panel behind the refrigerator. You will see the condensor, condensor fan and compressor. The condensor fan should be running any time the compressor is running. You might have something stopping the fan blades or the motor might be going bad itself. What you are describing is a classic example of a failed condensor fan motor. Catriver.
