Whirlpool gold side by side. Works fine, but every couple of days I will notice that it will not be cooling, as the fan or compressor will not be working. I will turn the temp controler off, then back on and the compressor and fan will begin to work. It will work fine for several days then it will stop working again.

Check the condenser coil to make sure it is free of any dust, which will cause the compressor to overheat. The fan underneath may still be running, but until the compressor cools down it will not start.
If the unit always immediately begins running when you turn the control off and back on, then it may be you have a bad control. Have a servixe tech look at it, as you cannot repair the control...it's a throw away device.

Hello

Sounds like the compressor is shuting down on high heat.There could be a couple reasons for this.
1 Check that proper voltage is being supplied to compressor.
2 Freon level may be low.This would be a service call.
3 Bad or intermitent connection at thermostat.
4 Main contacts to compressor sticking,usually burnt or pitted.

depending on your model. if its just a reg, side by side, you more than likely need a relay/ overload which is located on the compressor,the relay only works after it cools down. unplug ref from wall, remove rear cover to see and touch compressor to see if it starts when you plug back in to the wall. if it doesnt start in three attempts. replace it. easy way to diagnose..

These models have two fans. One is located inside the unit. The fan inside blows air across the cooling coils. With the door open this fan is usually running other than defrost cycle. If this fan has stopped it will cause the compressor to overheat and the relay will cycle.

The second fan equally as important is located under a fiberboard cover accessible from the back of the unit at the bottom. This fan is usually noticeable by an air flow sound. Usually air flow is detectable out of the front grill. If this fan fails to operate, blocked due to a major build up of lint the compressor will overheat and cycle as you hear,

Hope this helps?

check and clean the condenser coil under the ref , remove the back to the ref if the compressor is real hot you need to put a fan behind the ref for a couple of hours until the compressor cools down then plug it back in.

Frigidaire Electrolux side by side fan not working


If teh fan had burnt out then there is every possibility that your contactor, the timer, the compressor must be checked. Replace the fan as you had confirmed and put the set on. If the compressor works and the cooling comes on fine then there is nothing to worry. But if you notice any smell or a different noise then shut off and open the back side to check from the contactor onwards to the compressor. However if the compressor works well then you are lucky . hope you get along to do this. Good day

Whirlpool side by side not cooling or freezing. Have already cleaned the condensor coils with no change. I did notice that the fan in the bottom back is not spinning.


that is most likely the problem. If this fan doesnt cool the condenser and compressor it will shut the compressor down. replace the fan and your problem will most likely be fixed.
