Maytag fridge works but freezer doesn't


Try the control relay/ condenser thats attached to the compressor and provides a momentary spike to start the compressor start windings prior to the unit going into run mode. reasonable and easy to fix

GE Freezer stopped working


Obviously, the compressor is not running. Confirm the presence of power to the compressor itself. If it is getting power and unit does not run, you have an open motor winding OR if you have a start capacitor the latter could be defective. Let's hope that you have the capacitor because they go bad and are a lot cheaper to replace than the compressor!

Freezer just stopped working


Is this a frost free freezer? If it is, and the compressor and refrigerant is good, the problem probally lies with the defrost timer. What the defrost timer does, at regular intervals, typically every 12 hours, shuts down the compressor and powers up a defrost coil to melt any frost that has built up on the cooling coils inside the freezer. It probally the small square box that you mentioned. Some have a hole where you can turn the cam to the timer and that should switch the power from the defrost coil to the compressor.

Hope this helps.

Freezer stopped working.


It might be the compressor making the noise.If it is,the compressor will start/stop frequently.This means that it is tripping on overload due to mechanical damage.Only way to solve this prolem is to replace the compressor (if the freezer is still in a good condition).

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

The compressor works for a few seconds but then stops. The freezer is over temperature.


Check the condenser fan motor (next to compressor) make sure it is running. Next change relay (inside black box) on compressor.

My refridge and freezer would stop working


there is a saftey overload switch on the compressor when the compressor is over heating it cuts out. when the fridge is turned off it resets the switch. So now the compressor has burned out totally. you more and likely need a new compressor

Kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works


Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.
