SOURCE: Refrigerator/freezer gets warm intermittently

sounds like your thermostat is faulty
the thermostat reads the temperature of the cabinet and controls the temperature
the 1 thing to check on the uprights is the evaporator is in the freezer and that makes the cool then there is a fan that blows the air around the fridge and freezer to freeze things
now there is a cycle that hapens to cycle usualy every 12 hours and that is the defrost cycle
this cycle turns off the compressor and fan turns on an defrost element on the evaporator and heats up the coils to get rid of the ice
the ice turns to water and runs through a drain to a evaporator tray and when the cycle is finished the fridge stars up again and goes into the cooling state again
when the thermostat decides that the fridge is cold enough it turns of the compressor and so on it goes through the cycles as required
if the drai is blocked or the defrost system is not working the evaporator will get choked with ice and the fan will not beable to let air through to cool things off

Relay on the compressor bad.

Try unpluging for 30 - 45 min until the compressor has cooled down then plug it back in. If it doesn't start replace the relay. Most service techs carry a universal relay and wiil put the relay on, if it starts, your good to go, if not, then the compressor is bad.

SOURCE: Refrigerator is running but not cooling

You have a bad compressor relay. to check it you will need a voltage meter. Remove the rear cover and you will see the compressor remove the relay held on by a wire. If the relay sounds like a maraca replace it with part #8201769. If is donesn't sound like somethings broken inside it check for continuity on all 3 compressor terminals ( all terminals should read closed ) now this can go to ways if the terminals read good and the relay is good then the compressor is lock rotor and has to be replaced. Most cases it's the relay Good luck hope this helps

Compressor runs, fans run, no cooling happening in evaporator coil


Hi,

Put your hand on the compressor, if you have heat (about 120 degree) the cooling system is working. If you have not heat or luke warm, you have a seal system issue. Tapping is the only way to determine low charge or a leak in system. Keep in mind that tapping a sealed system in illegal if your not certified. Just be aware of the current laws in your area.

If no heat normally means low or lack of refrigerant.

Good Luck

I have a trane xe 800 its blowing air but not cold air, i felt the copper/bronze tube running into the unit it is luke warm also no chill at all. where should i start checking to get my house cold again.


Hello, if the pipe with insulation is luke warm then either the unit is empty of refrigerant due to leak or the compressor is not running at all. Start by going tje the outdoor unitnand checking if the compressor is running, if it is then the unit has no refrigerant, if the compressor is not running then either a bad capaitor orbthe compressor itself might be bad.

Shut off the fridge for few hours and check the starter in the compressor which is having a fault. If your compressor is not running well then you will have to see if the starter is heating. If so replace the starter so that the compressor gets better current. You will need help to check the pressure of the gas and the pumping pressure of the compressor. The starter will click and start immediately to run the compressor. If the fridge does not cool the fault will be with the gas pressure or compressor. If not check your defrosting circuit, the timer and the thermostat. SO check this out. Good day

Mod# GS6SHEXNLOO Ser# GF827090B Strip between side by side doors is hot to touch, not luke warm. Fan in back is working but not cooling.


The fan which cools the compressor ? You cannot hear the fan that cools the compressor . Have to visually look , If you hear a fan , it has to be the freezer fan you are hearing .Remove the rear panel behind refrig to see compressor fan .

Frdge not getting cold


Since your unit will have only one compressor, the cooled air must be circulated via a fan that distributes the air between the two compartments and this has probably died. This allows the cooled air to simply fall downward. When you can hear the compressor running, hold your fingers in front of the vents in the refrigerator compartment to see if you can feel any air stream.
