1. Check and clean the condenser where system heat is transfered to the air. Located in back behind removable panel, after cleaning make sure you re-install the panel for proper air circulation.

2. Check the back wall of the freezer for ice or frost. If you have frost buildup on the back wall you have a defrost system problem. This would be lated to the timer, heaters, or defrost thermostat.

SOURCE: fridge won't cut back on after it shuts off until its [powered off and on.

Hi, It sounds like the cold control is going bad. When it shuts of again, give it lettle bit and the tap on the control instead of turning it. If it kicks on, then you know it's the temperature control. Please let me know if this is what you find and if I can assist you with part# or how to order it.

My Kelvinator Opal Freezer is not getting cold, I think the compressor is not kicking in ?.

Probably the thermostat. You will need a multimeter to see if there is a circuit across the thermostat. There should be 2 wires and an earth to the thermostat. if you bridge the 2 wires together. (NOT the Earth or green wire) the thermostat will be bypassed. If the thermostat is faulty, the fridge will start but will not turn off when it reaches temperature. You will then need a new thermostat. Make sure its unplugged before you play around with it.

Cool will not come on when it's set in auto mode

A thermostat is only a switch, nothing more. It's job is to cut on and off the cooling/heating equipment based on a preset temperature setting. It sends 24-28 volts to a contactor or relay which does the actual closing (turn on) or opening (turn off) the power to the compressor or furnace, and that's all it does. There could be a problem with the other parts of the system. When the space temperature exceeds the preset temperature the thermostat should provide 24-28 volts to the compressor contactor, to start the compressor. The "Auto-on" switch on the thermostat controls the fan only. If there isn't 24-28 volts from the thermostat to the coil of the contactor, the compressor will not operate,

Kelvnator fridge motor clicks on and off repeatedly but not cooling it comes on roughly every 3 mins for about 4 seconds then clicks back off again. This fridge is over 20 years old and I'm not sure...

20 Years is a long time and we need to suspect quite a number of components. It is possible that the compressor is quiting as it overloads and then restarts when as the temperature is not maintained. Please check the capacitor to the motor, check the relay . Also if the pressure switch is faulty it can cut off. So a full check up starting with the compressor , the gas pressure and the electrical switching relay must be confirmed.

Freezer won't get below 30 degrees at the highest setting, food won't freeze.

Possible that the gas pressure is down to low gas or leak on the system. Also it can be due to faulty thermostat, faulty compressor if the compressor is working all the time and reaching the set temperature. Also if the compressor is not cutting off this must be a suspect.

Ac clutch kicks on and off, is there a thermal coupler?

There is a temperature control in an AC system and the compressor kicks out when the selected temperature is reached in the vehicle, it kicks on again to maintain the preset temperature.. There is also a pressure switch in the system that cuts out the compressor if the gas/lubricant in the AC is low and continued use of the compressor may damage the component.

Freezer works perfect- fridge is not cooling- no air flow. frost built up and cleaned out. thanks

The build up frost is blocking the free flow of ccool air circulation by the fan .So the auto defrosting circuit must eb checcked, check if the timer works, if so the heater swittches on to defrost, if not check the heater. Also check if the thermostat is working so as to cut off the compressor when the set temperature is reached than to keep it running.

It sounds like the thermostat is not sensing when the fridge/freezer reaches it's set temperature.This will result in the compressor running non-stop and this causes ice build-up inside the fridge.See on what number (0-7) the thermostat is set on.If it is set on 7,turn it down to 3 and see if it makes a difference.If there is no difference it means that the thermostat is not sensing & switching the compressor off.You will then have to replace the thermostat.

Side by sise fridge

yes it varies for how long the unit should stay in defrost 30 Min's for every 8 hrs of compressor running time keeping in mind that the compressor don't cut on till the thermostat tells it to there also is a defrost thermostat that cuts the heater off when the coils reach a preset temperature
