Compressor will not work on refrigerator freezer works but not fridge

I have a 19ft travel trailer and the fridge is cooling slightly but it seems as though the comopressor is not functioning. Any ideas?

    It is the original fridge so it would be 23 years old. It just doesn't seem to be getting any air circulation - just slight freezing in the freezer compartment. We have it on electrical 12volt.

How old is the unit? I would think since it is cooling slight. this might be a thermostat more than the compressor. Dont get me wrong it could be. Is the fridge 12volt dc or 120 ac?

possible connector to the compressor maybe corroded

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.


The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/both-refrigerator-and-freezer-not.html ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Freezer works fridge cool but not cold


Most side by side units have 2 compressor units. If you listen for it, you should be able to hear 2 compressors with slightly different pitches, operating at different times, or sometimes at the same time. If you never hear the fridge side compressor turn on, a sensor or the compressor is probably bad, if you never hear the fridge side turn off, the temp sensor is bad. If it has ever, or is leaking in the back, then there is a puncture in the cooling system, and the fridge will not be able to be cooled. If you can pull the fridge out and examine the tubes or unplug it for about 10 minutes and plug it back in to observe compressor activity and any small leaks, it would give a more definite answer to the problem. A mechanic will most likely be necessary.

You have a refrigerant leak. Your coil in the freezer should be frosted. You're looking at 600 dollars minumum for repair.

Freezer working, fridge isn't.


It is possible that your cooling unit is failing due to a blockage. The solution used to cool starts at the top of the fridge and works its way to the bottom. If there is a blockage in the cooling unit it could produce the symptom you have explained.

Refrigerator & freezer do not cool . both compartments completely warm. even bagged ice melts trying to keep refrigerator cool. refrigerator manufacture date 9/03


First check if the Compressor of the Fridge is working.There is slight chance that the compressor is working but the pressure of the compressor is low or the gas might be less.Check the compressor if there's oil on it's pipes...it means that there is a leakage n needs gas refilling.

Kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works


Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.
