Refrigerator runs too long at times and wont shut off

My refrigerator runs a long time and won't shut off--I have moved the freezer guage to a lower level and it will shut off and then I put it back to where it belongs and it is ok.--till the next time--happened twice so far this last week.

It was on the recall list and the part was replaced.

    the part replaced was for this problem



    Hazard: An electrical failure in the relay, the component that turns on the refrigerator's compressor, can cause overheating and pose a serious fire hazard.

    Ah yes the "Embraco"(made in Brazil) compressor. Over 16 million recalled due to fire hazard. Sounds like a temperature control problem now.

Maytag Refrigerator/freezer alarm will not turn off.


check that tha fan beside the compressor in lower back is running and that condenser tubing is lint free, also check for icing on frezer back panel if so you could have a defrost problem, if all is good you may have a freon leak inside the frig walls as tubing is all metal and will rust when sitting for a long time in storage due to moisture build up from been warm outside and cool inside during normal usage in which case you may need to change the appliance at that point you will need a service call to find if there's still freon inside your frig and of coarse your control may not read the properly..

Side by side Whirlpool in insulated cold garage ompressor seems to be running all the time, freezer not working fridge is warm


Sounds like low on freon. Some refrig. has a charging port. It may even say on name tag what type of freon to use. You need a guage to check if unit is low on freon.

The top freezer door opens slightly and then reseals whenever the lower refrigerator door is closed


The lower section is connected to the top section through a common opening in the freezer floor. Shutting the bottom, being it is larger, will force air to open the top door. I installed a roller for a cabinet on top of my fridge to keep the door from pumping open. It is used to keep children out of cabinets. It is a roller wheel mounted on a spring loaded arm. It keeps the freezer shut until we open it. Some times the pumping action will force the door open enough it will not shut and things get soft. Hope this Helps Fix Ya up.

Refrigerator runs constantly -- shuts off 3X a day for about 30 mins. each time -- bottom freezer model BX 21VW -- bought in yr. 2000 --- Serial # 0008208852


Refrigerators shut off and on time depends on the outside temperature, and how often you open it according the temperature setting. Lower temperature setting would yield less turn off time and higher temp seting would yiel less running time and vise versa.

I have a Frigidaire refrigerator with a top mount freezer, no ice maker. I have noticed that in really cold weather, the unit becomes less efficient, and in extreme cases, stuff in the freezer begins to...


Hi,
When it gets very cold the gas (freon) in the refrigeration system shrinks....because the properties that make cold also work against you in this case...when the gas shrinks in volume it then does not work properly anymore...the hot gas does not turn back into a liquid but stays as a gas and because of that it does not cool when going through the expansion device...ie. cap tube or expansion valve. If you were to keep it in the cold all the time you could add a bit of charge to make it work, but then if you move it to warm or the weather warms... now you are over charged... just one of those "no win" deals...
They don't make these things to run in extreme environmental changes..they like it a consistent temp. all the time...

Freezer and refrigerator run but is not cold


Andeb, couple of things you want to check. Is the fan in the freezer section running? Take the lower back panel off and see if the condensor fan is running as well as the compressor. As long as you tilted it only slightly I would think this is a fan or overload relay problem. Check the things I mentioned and post back...Catriver.
