If the motor on the power brush is running the belt is bad, if the motor on the power brush only runs when you push the overload, the overload is bad.

SOURCE: stop working

It will be very diffilcult for even the most experienced technician to troubleshoot your refirgerator with so little information. No make and model number, no infor on how old it is...therefore start with the basics:

Verify it has power (does the interior light(s) come on?

If so, most refrigerators DO NOT have a reset button. The motor overloads reset when they cool off. If your unit has power and will not start after left alone (unplugged) for a few hours, then either the thermostat controls (most likely), a part of the thermostat controls (some controls use mutilple sensors and control relays), the overload on the compressor is bad or the compressor itself is bad. If the condenser fan runs but the compressor does not...I would suspect a problem with the compressor or it's electricals. If nothing starts except lights...I would suspect the temperature control. Good-luck.

Where is the reset button on Elna6004 6004, overload message keeps appearing

The message means that the motor is drawing too much current. Could be a mechanical bind or the motor itself is worn out.

Hope that helps.

I have a utilitech 1/2 hp pump. I runs 5 min., and then stops. If I let is sit for 10 min. and then replug it will run another 5 min. then stop. I have taken off the bottom and cleaned it. What now?

It appears to be over loading and being shut off by the thermal overload switch. This can be from failing bearings, overload as the motor is too small for the job, the rpms are too low for correct operation and the start capacitor is not being taken out of the circuit on starting. ( some small hp motors have a set of contacts at one end that are closed when stationary but on reaching operational speed are opened by a centrifugal bob weight. When closed the start capacitor induces extra voltage to get the motor turning and when running is taken out of the circuit. The points in this system are known to burn together and so keep the capacitor in service which will over heat or burn out the motor. Best have it checked out by an accredited electrical motor re-builder for the cause of the problem.

Look for a reset button on the motor.

Dryer stops

If the hum is loud I would suspect something is jammed and the motor is stopped leading to a heavy current running through the motor. After 5 or 10 minutes I would anticipate the circuit breaker would trip or the motor would burn up. If the humming suddenly stops then a thermal overload switch might be activating and when it cools down normal operation resumes. This is my only insight.

Electrician was here yesterday and shut fuze temporarily. It's back on, but system is not cooling. where is the reset button? Model: MSB2354AR

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly,

There is no reset button. There is a thermal overload on the compressor called a KliXon and that is what should be cycling about every 5 - 8 minutes if the compresor did not start.

When there is a temporary loss of power 10 minutes or less there is a good possibility that the internal coolant pressures are way to high for the compressor to start. Unplug the unit for 15 - 20 minutes and plug it back in FIRST. (longer is better) This will give the coolant system time to equalize so the compressor can start. If after trying the unplug / wait / re-pulg routine it still does ot start or cool just repsond here and I will gladly help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The motor starter overload auxiliary contact is wired into the intellisys control unit. If the motor would overload, then the thermal overloads in the motor starter will trip. When this occurs you will get that message. The overloads are in the electric panel on the left side. You will have to remove the screws to gain access. Be sure to have disconnect off when removing cover. There is a reset button on the motor starter you can press to reset. Now the question is why did it trip? There are a few common possibilities. On is dirt in the coil not allowing enough air to pass over the motor. Slipping belt generating too much heat. Old or low oil causing high temperatures. Pressure setting set higher than unit is designed. You can set pressure on the intellisys. Another reason is short cycling. If you have this set for start stop operation by pressure, the minimum run time should be at least 10 min, and I believe mfg recommends even longer. If it starts and stops too frequently, the motor will overheat.I hope this helps. (I maintain a very similar unit where I work) These units are usually very trouble free units if you keep the oil, oil filter, air filter, and separator changed as recommended.

Fridge freezer not working/power ok,

If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.

Look for a self resetting overload on the motor. many motors have an overload that pops a little red button out and waits for a push to reset. Other overloads will reset automatically because they are hard to access for pushing a button. If there is an overload resulting in a shutdown you will have to determine the cause. I have found motors in washers completely ingulfed in dust and lint (from the adjacent dryer) and not being allowed to dissipate heat. Sometimes a thorough cleaning is all that it needs to run cool and efficiently.
