Hi,

First of all, over temp light can be cause by the fan motor knocking, possible bent blade from cleaning. Was the unit recently cleaned? If so, you will need to correct this issue before you loss the compressor! If temps don't recover within 24 hrs, you will need to have the unit checked. Is the temp alarms sounding and or the red temp light flashing? Are you hearing a faint beeping noise from the top portion of the unit? the reason I ask this is when you have a fan issue you should have a alarm to advise the owner of a temp issue.

Get back to me with you findings so I can help.

Good Luck,

Condenser fan is knocking


Sounds like you need to clean off the fan blades. Over time the fan will build up so much dust it can interfere with the fan cooling the condensing coils. If the fan can't keep the coils properly cooled off the temperature in the refrigerator will rise. Make sure to unplug the refrigerator before cleaning the fan. Of course it could be that your condensing fan motor is just going bad (bearing etc.) If you are not comfortable checking the unit yourself contact an appliance service company.

Restricted perfomance dash message


this warning can be flagged by lots of reasons you really need to get the fault codes out of the engine control module but the common causes i have found after working on these cars for a few years are air leaks after the mass air flow sensor, sticking throttle butterfly in the throttle body, the throttle itself, lamda sensors, and knock sensors, and because the temp gauge does not give you a true temp reading the engine could be overheating the clue to that is the rad fan always running

SAMSUNG RS2534WW CONDENSOR FAN NOT WORKING


Was the motherboard replaced because the temp was too high? May be the condenser fan was at fault all the time. Check you have power at the fan. If you have, replace the fan. If you have not, take a live from the compressor to the fan. This will bypass any hp or fan speed control switch and run the condenser fan with the compressor.

Spark knocks going up hills also temp gage not working


What do u mean by spark knock? Missfire? Temp gauge not working could be a few things, sender fault, no water, gauge fault or wiring. Check u have water in it. Then find the sender and earth it out, gauge should go all the way up, if it does replace the temp sender, if not it's gauge or wiring. Let me know about the spark knock.. Not sure what u mean

Outside condenser fan won't run. I have pwr going to the contactor. The fan spins freely by hand. When I turn it to cool I get high and low lights illuminated on the circuit board. What do these mean??


You did not mention if the compressor ran when you depressed the contactor. The condenser fan is tied into the compressor wiring so if the compressor runs, so does the condenser fan. That is unless you have a winter kit in it which allows the condenser fan only to operate once it hits a certain temp. If you are getting error codes, I would say you have low refrigerant.
