SOURCE: Freezer quits working

Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item #: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen. After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer stays around 0 degrees.

SOURCE: Temperature reverts back to old number which is 33

set the controls to off. then , unplug the unit from the wall for 15 minutes. this will allow the control processor to completely reset itself . after fifteen minutes, plug it in and reset your desired temperatures on your controller. if this does not work, I would suggest you consult the manufacturer or your owner's manual for more information on programming the temperature controller.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Unplug the a/c and check the control panel of your a/c. Unscrew the control panel to expose the wires and terminal lugs.Check for lose wires or terminal lugs or defects from the compressor capacitor. If all are OK try adjusting the thermostat switch to make the contacts work. If the capacitor is damage replace it and replace any damage terminal lug. If the compressor still does not work, check the overload and the compressor resistance. If overload is open, replace it and check compressor amperage. If the compressor amperage is high, you have to replace the compressor, vacuum, and recharge freon.

Have an Amana 85088 P1109007W that worked fine for 18 year just bought a new one and moved the Amana out to the garage to use as a second frig .We cleaned it and plugged it in , it cooled for about 10 min...


It may be in defrost mode. Look at the temp control on the underside for a hole with no
screw in it that appears to serve no purpose. Using a flathead screwdriver, turn the
mechanism inside the hole, (it is the defrost timer) and see if the unit comes on. If no
luck, then replace the start relay which is located under the plastic cover on the side of
the compressor. It plugs onto the compressor on three pins, if no replacement is available
they make a "universal" start kit for about 8 dollars which plugs onto these pins and has
good instructions. Model and serial number are usually inside the fresh food compartment
on the left side. The appliance parts store should have this item readily available.
Hope this helps :) remember to unplug unit before replacing any parts.

Unit shut down for 24 to 36 hrs whith power to it/ lights inside still worked


By shut down I'm assuming you mean the compressor does not come on. Does your unit use dials or electronic controls ? Try raising the dial to max and see if compressor kicks in - otherwise unplug the fridge for a few minutes and plug it back in to see if it resets - you either have a shot compressor or a faulty control board (faulty control board being more common) followed by stuck defrost timer.

Air compressor motor stalls under pressure


this sounds like a bad pressure switch.if the unit is not shutting off at the same pressure each time this would be the cause.2 if the pressure is not unloading the air pressure on the compressor side of the unit it will cause the unit to struggle when it starts a cycle because the piston is under a load .how this works is say the unit starts from 0 psi when it get to the desired pressure you have it set on the unit kicks off . the other adjustment most units have on them is what pressure to cycle back on.so when the unit reaches say 100 pounds ,it kicks off and bleeds the air off the compressor side so when it starts back up it wont start up with pressure on the piston.

AC/Heatpump units cycle numerous times blowing ambient air.


If the compressor never kicks in, I would check the start capacitor, thermostat and the compressor windings. Most times the start capacitor is defective. Some window air conditioners the fan will run while the compressor stop through the thermostat switch. If the thermostat switch is bad every thing runs except the compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
