Hi, did the whole refrigerator shut down or just the compressor?
If the compressor only shut down, the compressor is bad.
If the whole thing shut down, it might have went into defrost cycle.
Does this help?

Have kenmore chest freezer just changed starter and overload to the new 3 start and compressor working but gets very hot


Check for current draw to see if it is within normal parameters. If draw is ok and unit is working then leave it alone. The motor gets cooled by the cold gas returning back into the sealed chamber.

Upright freezer door was left ajar. The alarm keeps sounding, can you tell me where the reset button is located.


Hello Deena;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There is no reset for the alarm. The alarm goes off when you are not maintaining temperature.

During the time the door was ajar, warm air got into the freezer either icing up and locking the cooling fan or forming a block of ice on the cooling coils (Restricting cooling air flow.)

The best thing you can do, unless you want a $300.00 plus service call to defrost everything, is to turn power off to the freezer. Open the freezer door. Have plenty of old towels to soak up the water in the bottom of the freezer as it defrost.

You did not provide a model number which is located on the inside wall of the freezer. Every 8-10 hours your freezer will completely shout down for 20-30 minutes where only the light works and the defrost heater turns on. The ice build up is too much for the defrost heater to handle.

In some freezers the defrost mode is in the control board, in others it is a separate component that you can repeat trip using a flat head screw drive.

My Frigidaire up right freezer is showing an error code "FF" and is beeping. What is the issue?


Hey friend, thanks for your inquiry!

Within your Frigidaire freezer the error code "FF" stands for freezer failure. I would perform a reset on your appliance which can be done by either unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit breaker. Once the freezer has come back on you should be able to push the "Down" button three times to start it back up.

If that does not correct the issue Please respond back I would like to assist you with any additional information. Hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

I can't turn my Kenmore upright freezer on.


Try disconnecting power for about 30 seconds, and then restore power. This will reboot the control and maybe restart.

My DCF550W just stopped working. Yes - it is plugged in, and the breaker is not tripped! There is no response to dialing the temperatiure control to any position. It sure sounds like the overload protector...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I suspect by your description the freezer either has a faulty overload protector as you mentioned (no there is no reset) or the compressor itself is seized.

If you feel like you can trouble shoot further I`ve provided the following info to assist you or you may decide to call a professional appliance technician as I would suggest.

I don`t know the age of your fridge, but I should mention...

** Most of the manufacturers of fridges/freezers have 5 to 10 years sealed system warranty which would include the compressor but not the electrical starting devices i.e., the overload & relay. Check your owners manual, it is the ultimate authority on warranty no matter what anyone else tells you according to.**

If you have a multi- meter you can check the compressor to see if the windings are ok.

**First, Unplug the freezer**

Remove the panel at the back or side down at the bottom. This should gain you access to the compressor.

On the side of the compressor will be the start relay/overload assembly such as this image...it may be enclosed in a black plastic cover as well.

2234770.jpg

Pull off the relay & overload and you'll see 3 pins in the form of a triangle...

ffd3e9e.jpg
With a meter measure between any 2 pins at one time, going between each pin with one remaining on a "common" pin.

You'll want 3 measurement's, similar to this example- 6ohms, 3ohms, and 9ohms.

On some meters you may simply get a reading of "0" ohms, as long as the needle moves off of "infinity" which would indicate an "open" winding=not good !

If following that, the readings are good, purchase a hard start kit. Part # HS410 also known as a 3in1 starter kit.

i.e.

775ec2d.jpg

The above package contains info and hardware on how to connect it.


NOTE : the HS410 ( 3 in 1 ) should be considered just a temporary "fix" as opposed to an actual "repair" in should not be relied on for long term reliability or safety, but rather the factory replacemnet, double check with your model number.

Hope that help`s move you forward if nothing else. If so please take a second and rate the reply and a testimony to your inquiry you received here at FixYa.

Thank you and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

THE ALARM LIGHT HAS COME ON HOW DO I RESET THE ALARM AS I DONT HAVE A MANUAL TALL FREEZER FVE 1415 FREEZER TRIPPED OUT ALL FOOD NOW LOST


When it is fixed and the temperature goes back down it will automatically go off.

If it's stuck trying unplugging for 10 minutes and then plug back in to reset. If it has a battery backup take out battery.

Inside the door near top there is sometimes instructions to hold the button for 3 seconds to reset or unlock controls (on modern Frigidaires and some Kenmores).
