SOURCE: Fridge not cool

the coil is frosted over and no air is being pushed to the fridge it may clear up after a few defrost cycles or remove the food from the freezer and allow it to thaw completely (12hrs) the ice behind the back wall takes a long time to thoroughly melt or you will have soild ice instead of frost and then it will never thaw soild ice.

SOURCE: subzero 361rfd fridge compressor wont stay runnig

It sounds like you have either a bad relay or a bad compressor. The fact that you hear the compressor try to start indicates that the control is good and there is voltage to the compressor. I would suspect the strat winding of the compressor but a meter would need to be used to determine is this is true.

SOURCE: freezer cold, fridge warm

The small cooling fan in the freezer compartment that sends chilled air to the food side is defective and needs replacement.  Sometimes that are only frozen stuck.

When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

A 240 volt fridge/freezer? You must not be in the USA? What voltage is the fan, itself? If it is 240, as well, you might be missing one, of the legs. Both legs/wires usually have to have 120 volts. You need to check the voltage going to the fan. You may only be getting half the voltage to the fan, if it's 240, as well.

Compressor keeps kicking off 1999 Buick Century AC


Your ac system is most likely low on freon, or the cooling fan is not working.
When you turn on the ac the cooling fan should stay on.
If it stays on then you are low on freon.

Coleman Model 8335B8964. Fan will not come on when the compressor kicks on. it will hum and then after about 1-2 minutes, the fan will kick on but will squeek for a few seconds. then runs fine.. What...


I assume you are talking about the condenser fan (outdoor), if so the squeaking indicates bad bearings. These motors usually have oil ports which you can re-lube, however the hermetic styling by which most AC parts are built makes the recommendation to change the motor/capacitor the only long term solution.

Electric fans do not work. Fuses OK Motors also run if hooked up directly.


If the fans work when hooked up directly. this indicates that the fan motors are okay. The next step is to check if the coolant temperature sensor (usually located near the thermostat housing) to see if it sending a signal to the relay when the engine temperature goes above normal. This part is inexpensive and easily replaced; throw one in if you still have the original. A second sensor (or switch) may need to be checked; this is the radiator fan switch. These two usually work as a "team" in managing engine temperatures; one switch tells the computer and the instrument gauge what temperature your engine is operating in, while the other responds by sending a signal to the radiator fan relay to "kick on" the fan.

Lastly, the radiator fan relay itself may have burned out. I usually try to switch out identical relays to determine if this is the problem.


Hope this helps.

Sounds like an airflow restriction. If you remove cover you are giving the fan all the possible air it can get, therefore it seems to run properly.

Flame goes out when fan kicks on


If the flame lights all the burners within 2 seconds but does not stay on, you may need to clean the flame rod found at the farthest end of the burner box. It will be located at the end of the box that lights last. It will be a probe that is in the flame of the last burner. If it has carbon on it or scale, take an old tooth brush and scrub it. Check the wire connected to it and follow that wire back to the circuit board and check that connection.

Why is my Whirpool Window AC fan speed not changing? I have replaced the switch already!


possible that the fan motor speeds have gone out.. On the cooling cycle the fan speed is set for higher speeds and heat cycle slower speeds. it is possible that the fan motor in that speed you are needing is burned out

    Compressor turns on but not the fan.


    Jeannine, on this model there is one motor that turns both the evaporator and condensor fans. First you want to check to see if there is any obstruction preventing the fans from turning. There is also a dual capacitor that gives this motor a kick start. If this goes bad the motor will not run, just humm. Hopefully it is just your capacitor that has failed but it could be the motor itself. Part number for the capacitor is 16-05-00710-109. Part number for the motor is 50-11-t26p0-050. Usually a bad capacitor will show signs of leaking or bulging, but not always...Catriver..post back
