What brand fridge?it is probably the overload,and relay on the compressor.I buy them all the time from a wholesale appliance store,and both are around10$ together,and takes about 10 minutes to change.I can't imagine retail could be too expensive.You could also just buy a hard start kit.

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all


If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

I am a different person with the same problem the compressor kicks on ,the light is on but it doesnt get cold it does seem like the fan at the top isnt working the one in the middle is thank you


The compressor is running, that is a good sign. If you notice any cooling that is not a good sign. Even with the fan not running , the evaporator should have produce some cooling. Could it be that you are a condenser fan running? well, the compressor makes a distinct sound when it runs and you need to confirm that is running and not just the condenser fan.
Firstly- If you confirm that the condenser fan is running; that is, if there is one, that is good. Secondly- Check and confirm that the compressor is running Thirdly- If there is an evaporator fan inside the unit, check and confirm that is running.
If all checks okay and there is no cooling, the refrigerant might have escaped through a leak, and there will not be any cooling. You can extrapolate from my troubleshooting steps to diagnose the wine cooler problem.
Good luck

Need info for a kenmore side by side refrigerator model#59652673202 it it not cooling nor freeszing ; the light works and the fan works but not cooling any side please help me


Good day,
With that amount of info it would be hard to try to pinpoint it. Here's a list of items that can cause a refrigerator to not cool.

Items that will cause a refrigerator not to cool.....
1. Defective thermostat
2. Defective freezer fan motor
3. Defective defrost timer
4. Defective defrost thermostat
5. Defective defrost main heater.
6. Defective condenser fan motor
6. Defective compressor overload protector
7. Defective compressor start relay
8. Defective compressor start/run capacitor (some models only)
9. Defective compressor
10. Restriction in refrigeration sealed system
11. Loss of refrigerant (leak)
12. Excessively dirty condenser
13. Broken wires, bad wire harness connectors, ect.
14. Defective fan motor switch (some models only)

As you can see it could be one of many,many items. If your handy with a meter you might want to start at the bottom back of the machine where the compressor is located.
Sounds as if it is not running, or running without refrigerant in the system.
Also, if it has a cooling fan motor in that area, make sure it runs, since all fan motors are wired to run at the same time.

I have a trane XR12 Heat Pump. The cooling fan on the outdoor unit does not run nor does the compressor. The fan motor heats up and hums. I am guessing that the problem is the start capacitor on the fan...


Hello Rich,NO you have a dual capasitor that runs both fan & compressor motors.Shut it down and let it cool off.You need the uf rate numbers & the volt rating of the existing cap (printed on the side)to get EXACT replacement.The wires plug in to the top termanls C, HERM &FAN.Worth fixing good luck.

Fan inside the house comes on and cool air comes thru vent but fan on outside compressor wont come on is is the capcitor


It could very well be the capcitor. If you have a duel capcitor (1 cap. that is used for both the fan & the compressor) the compressor may not run either. First and easieast try the capcitor. If thats not it and the compressor is running & all wires look ok than its probebly the fan motor.
Hope this helps;

I got kalvinator frostfree model KNT283GY. After defrost action is free. Timer gives voltage to compressor. The compressor will not start . there is power on compressor ,fan works but compressor will not...


Condenser fan motor may be running a little slower therefore causing a warmer compressor. Also the refrigerator must be plugged into a dedicated outlet wired 12/3 with 20 amp breaker.
With the compressor to hot the thermal overload will open therefore the compressor will not run until it cools and overload resets.

Fan runs, shuts down on cool


Sounds like a power supply problem. There is enough power to run the fan but when you turn it to cool the current draw by the compressor drops the voltage. The lower power light is telling you the answer to your problem.
