Why isnt my frigidaire side by side refrigerator cooling and compressor is working?

Only the compressor is running but not the fan


if the fan next to the compressor is not working you need to replace it otherwise the compressor will get hot due to no cooling air above also make sure the condensing coil is also clean for proper circulation you should have your unit working if you follow this steps...good luck

The side door is getting hot


Hello,
Pull the unit out away from the wall. Remove the bottom cardboard or metal cover that covers the compressor area. Assure that the compressor fan is working usually when the fan is not working the sides of the unit will start to heat. If the compressor fan is not working shut the unit off until the compressor cools. I have used a box fan while leaving the cover off on a unit to keep the compressor cooling while I had to wait for the new compressor fan motor to come in. DO NOT RUN THE REFRIGERATOR IF THE FAN IS NOT WORKING UNLESS YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO KEEP THE COMPRESSOR COOL like a fan constantly blowing on the compressor. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks
Rick

I recently washed my freezer (back department) and now the mortor is working but it does not cool.


Check to see if the compressor cooling fan is operating and also check the compressor to make sure that it is truely working. If the cooling fan is not operating then it is probably the contactor-relay or capacitor not starting the compressor or the fan.

Suggest you use a shop vac and an air compressor to clean the rear compartment the next time.

1998 Chevy Prizm A/C and Cooling Fan Problems


Compressor could not work without cooling fan comming on.
Check compressor mounting bolts and belt placement on pulley regarding the noise.
But before we get to the a/c system repairs its important to have a properly working cooling system.

Is the car overheating ? It should if neither fan works.
If I recall correctly the fan switch is usually on the upper radiator hose coupling.
you may want to test the fan(s) its self. Remove the electical connectors fron the fan(s) , fabricate a set of jumper wires and run it from the battery. If this works the fan(s) are ok . If it doesn't replace the ones that don't work.
The coolant switch aka fan switch is usually tested with an ohmmeter . Use shop manual for testing procedure.
Test the a/c fan and engine cooling fan relays. (see shop manual for details)
Then I would start looking at coolant( correct mixture and thermostat2_bing.gif) although the thermostat is not likely to cause this.
If all of this still doesn't correct the problem it may be the ECU that monitors this system it may not be responding to the signal /voltage from coolant temp sensor to turn on the fan, (again nedd shop manual to test this)
Once you have a properly working cooling systemnow you can turn your focus on the a/c. Compressors either work or they don't.For you safety I recommend having the a/c system serviced by a ASE certified Technician or a tech's who legally can perform a/c service. Good luck

Mod# GS6SHEXNLOO Ser# GF827090B Strip between side by side doors is hot to touch, not luke warm. Fan in back is working but not cooling.


The fan which cools the compressor ? You cannot hear the fan that cools the compressor . Have to visually look , If you hear a fan , it has to be the freezer fan you are hearing .Remove the rear panel behind refrig to see compressor fan .

Refridgerator/Freezer stopped cooling


if the compressor was very hot to the touch, suspect you have a compressor fault

1 Answer

Compressor is extremely hot


Compressor will be hot to the touch. You stated the fan was replaced and then said the fan is not cooling. If you replaced the fan and it is now operating, reinstall the panel you removed to install the fan motor. That panel determines proper air circulation to cool the system.
