My Daewoo freezer is not working since yesterday, we tried to change the fuse but it just works for 15 seconds then,it stops we don't know why can you help please?


I would think that the compressor is either overheating, or faulty and cutting out on a Thermal overload cut out device fitted to the compressor.
If it is overheating, then it could be due to several problems:
1] Ventilation to the compressor is poor, or blocked.
2] compressor Cooling fan failed ( not fitted on all models)
3] Condensor blocked ( Not fitted on all models) This looks like a small car radiator in the compessor compartment (if fitted?).
Turn the fridge off, and leave it for up to 2 hours to cool, once cool, ensure that the ventilation is good around the compressor compartment, and try it again. If it starts and runs as normal it may have just overheated. If there is a fan fitted in the compressor compartment, then observe if it is working or not when you turn it back on.
If the compressor cuts out again, as you have described, trhen it is more than likely that the compressor has failed and needs replacing.
This is not a job that a novice can do, and will be expensive to have replaced by a Refrigeration engineer.
I hope this helps?

The fans are not working so the air is not circulation to cool the fridge what do I do?


I've never seen a comercial fridge with fans. I think you speak about the compessor. Assumed the fridge has power (iside light when you open the door) that means the thermostat is defective. Your fridge needs a new thermostat. It could be cheaper to buy a new one.

Compressor works, cooling fan does not, fridge and freezer are correct temp.


Where exactly is this fan located? Are you saying that if you spin it it does start to run? For how long? Tx, Petra

Compessor is not kicking on. The freezer began thawing and water dripping out the door. Is there a reset button on the compressor


No reset on compressor. Try controller first, and check all else working e.g. fans lights etc. if power to compressor and not running, time for a new compressor

I have an amana 90 home air conditioner w/ a amana prestige compressor. compessor runs but cooling fan not turning ,fan is not locked up and unit has power .of course w/fan not turning home is not...


Could be a couple of reasons for this:
1. Condensor fan motor bad.
2. Condensor fan motor loss of power.
3. Condensor fan motor capictor bad.

Unit has control for fan for low ambient operation and unit is low on freon telling fan its cold out side and dont run.
Hope this helps. wally

CONSTANT CLICKING SOUND COMING FROM POWER BOX

Not cooling, clicking sound from low


The cilcking sound is probably the klixon circuit breaker kicking out and resetting and kicking out again. If so, the unit is scrap as you have a compressor failure, electrical or mechanically related.

Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling


Is the fan on the bottom on? Do you hear the compressor kick off and on within a minute? No/ Is the evaporator fan running? Do you have frost on the evaporator? Frost is a sign that the defrost isnt working. If evap fan doesnt run it wont cool the refrigerator. If everything is running and no frost buildup in freezer then you have a sealed system problem and need of a tech.

Admiral side by side fridge defrosted and no longer cooling


Replace the compressor start relay.
If this does not solve the problem you most likely have a bad compressor.
Your fridge may be under a 5 year compressor warranty.

Mistral mss20 split a/c only cooling somtimes 4 about 10 m then


Sounds like your unit may be a bit short of refrigerant and the compressor is therefore cutting out on low pressure.
