SOURCE: refrig and freezer not working

:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

STOP PAYING FOR EXPENSIVE WATER FILTERS FOR YOUR REF. DO THIS====

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Smells like something is burning when turning on fan mostly when turning on heat. Also makes a gurgling noise. Can hear it and smell from interior of van


Check you coolant level(gurgling sound). A sweet smell is most likely a leaking heater core. Burning oil is valve cover gaskets.

Noise and burning smell from heater


Yeah.
Pine needles get into the heater box and clog the heater fan motor's "fan".
You also may have rodents in there,making nests.
The wife was smart to turn off the heater fan B-4 the fuse blew.

Heater and aircon not working,loud rattling noise and smoke from vent,now not power to fan


It appears your fan itself burned out. When a field coil of an electrical fan burns out it usually makes a lot of smoke. The noise could be something that fell in there that stopped the fan from turning freely. I can imagine it heated up under the strain and burned out.

When you restarted it was burnt out so hence no noise and no fan.
The smell of the smoke should also be clue. Electrical field coils burning has an awful soury type of smell.

I just bought a 1996 camry and the fan sounds loud and it smells like something is burning, yet the temperture is normal and no smoke comes out. Is that Normal? First Toyota, so I"m not sure if the...


Check the fan on broken blades - even a small part missing can cause unusual sounds. If parts are new / serviced - smell can be due to labels getting hot and emitting slight burning smell. Classic are exhaust pipes with partnumber labels left on there. If he smell stays, something in the interior might come from a crash car which was partly burned.

The refrigerator smells like something is burning. Checked the back and it appears the fan is no longer working. Can the fan be replaced alone, or must the whole motor be repaired as well?


The fan will; be easy to get and replace, take fan out and find a local refrigeration supplier to match it as close as they can to your model. Make sure power is off and that the fan motor is making the smell. Let me Know, Thanks Sea Breeze
