What do you mean the compressor was cleaned. It sounds to me you need to clean out the condenser coil. free it from all dust and debris. + Does the compressor work and what gas is in the system, does the condenser fan work. I'm assuming that when you say the fan works, it is the evaporator fan inside the cabinet working. You will have access the condenser fan either from the front or rear of the unit. The condenser unit is normally extracted from the rear. it should slide out but take care not to kink any of the pipework.

SOURCE: I have a model GDM-26.

The way you described the problem, I would be looking for a refrigerant leak... I think that it was low on charge and now it is so low that it will not cool at all...

Have a tech. find/fix the leak and recharge the unit...

KF9000e. Why does compressor cycle at short intervals?

Yes. due to low rpm of fan motor in the condensor copil. or dirty condensor coil. I If so, replace fan capacitor.
If all good, check the seating of condensor set. It needs minimum 2mtrs open space for air throw. If not due to overheat compressor gets short cycling on and off.

My lg gm-313sc keep on work and stop in lest than 3 minits

The refrigeration is short cycling. The cause may be due to airflow problem. There is an outside fan thalt blows across a radiator and another in the inside the fridge enclosed behind panels.
These two fans must run and blow across the refrigeration radiators. The outside one can clog with lint and dirt, the inside one can clog with ice buid up, or the fans simply quit working. Check that the fans run and that the radiator coils are clean and clear to airflow. For the outside one, paneling will need to be removed, as well for the inside one if the outside one does not do the trick.
The refrigerator compressor short cycles because it overheats. The cool refrigeration gas entering the compressor cools it and when the gas is not kept cool, the compressor may short cycle.
There may be a different problem but checking for airflow is a start.

What do I need to fix a cycling compressor fan in my Kenmore refrigerator?

The compressor fan is powered by the same contractor/relay as the compressor. It should run the same time. If it is stopping, then either an electrical problem exists or the bearings are dried up and it overheats and the internal thermal safety is kicking it out.. You could try lubricating the shaft of the motor but I suggest replacing it.

There could be a loss of freon(unlikely but possible), the start capacitor for the compressor is bad (most likely) or the thermal cut off switch on the compressor is cycling from the hot compressor.

Isn't cooling, doors feel hot to touch

check the condenser fan motor,pull out the machine from the wall and then remove the back bottom panel,you'll see the condenser fan down there,make sure it's blowing,also check the condenser coil,it should be cleaned out at least once a time you write it would help sending the model number and brand name.good luck.if it is the fan you can stick a regular house fan back there to keep the compressor cool until you get a new fan motor,keep the bottom panel off and just point the fan at the compressor.hope this helps.

Is the condenser fan blowing air over the coils? These symptoms sound like a bad condenser fan. Hope this helps.
