SOURCE: HAIER REFRIG IN A CAMPER

Interesting! I'm going to assume that this is a 110V unit running on an alternate power supply rather than regular AC. First: test the circuit with at least a 100 watt light bulb for a few minutes. If that looks okay (bulb at full brightness, not flickering), let's go on. What I also don't know is what 'overloads' you're speaking about. If it is the compressor (there is a light clicking sound periodically in or near the black compressor unit), the problem could be that it is overheating because something is blocking the airflow around the coils like an ant nest or debris. You've got to go in and clean them. Unplug unit, remove the contents and glass shelves, lay the unit on its side so you can see what's what in the back. Remove anything that looks like the manufacturer didn't put it in there. Look up into the area where the tubes go into the back panel area, too. Do not clean with water! If the unit is more than 5 years old, it probably should be scrapped. Note that older units have R-12 refrigerant which should be handled only by a qualified tech or recycler.

SOURCE: The compressor on my Whirlpool wbm46 fridge is

Hello there:
first you might want to have the compressor recharged with refrigerant these hermatic units will over time loose some of the refrigerant and will need to be recharged and this would be a lot cheeper to do than replacing the compressor if your warranty is still good i would use it ok?
best regards michael

SOURCE: compressor trips the overheating/overload switch

You have a bad start capicator. Remove the circut board cover and you will see the cap. It is a little bigger than a C sized battery and it is white. Replace it with a new one and you will be fine

Refrigarator not working after power outage


When power goes on and off suddenly, it can cause the compressor to overload and "trip out" This is supposed to protect the compressor from being electrically damaged. In most cases, after 10 or 15 minutes, the compressor will reset. It is usually safer to switch off the fridge or unplug it for 10 to 15 minutes to ensure a full reset. If it doesn't start, the power surge may have damaged the compressor relay. or overload device on the side of the compressor. I would doubt that it damaged the compressor itself. Be aware of the relay and overload device, unfortunately, there are Techs who will quote for a compressor job when all it needs is a relay or overload.

Refrigerator model bx21vl does not cool. I can hear the compressor kick in but it kicks out in 5-10 seconds. Then after about 102 to one minute it kicks in and out again,


Compressor is tripping on overload. You may just need the overload and relay replaced due to a bad compressor relay. The relay is what switches the compressor from it's start winding to it's run winding. If you pull the relay off, shake it to see if you hear lots of rattling inside, that's a sure sign of a bad relay. I would replace both of them.
Here is the overload relay to order.
Here is the start relay to order.

Admiral HMG61139 21.1 cu ft Side-by side refrigerator, not cooling. clicking sound every few minutes. (sounds similar to oven thermostat or relay coming on).


Hello,

Thier is one of a couple things going on with your refrig.

The start relay on the compressor is bad so what your hearing is the overload thermostat tripping on and off and keeps trying to start the compressor

The fan motor by the compressor called the condenser fan motor is not running to cool the compressor so once and what you overload keep trying to start the compressor but its too hot to start

Finally the compressor is locked up and the overload still keeps trying to start it but its totally seazed and ain't going to run

I hope this helps you to determine what is wrong with your refrigerator,
Gene

Breaker breaks


This unit may have an internal overload mounted on top of the compressor. You would have to get to the
compressor to find out and it maybe faulty. That may
explain why the compressor comes on later on, this
overload protects the compressor from getting hot.

When you trip the breaker and then reset it again only to see it trip again almost sounds like a direct short or loose wire. It could also mean that your
capacitor needs to be replaced or that you need a hard start kit and the unit needs a good cleaning.

Try just operating the fan and see if it trips the breaker, if it does then either the blower motor is bad
or it is still the capacitor.

Pump humms and barely turns. Fan blade caught wire caused huge spark. wire has been replaced.pump does not really seem to get going and trips safety after a minute of running.


hi there!
short circuited at start damage motor compressor
if you have a service center for motor compressor have checked this one, motor compressor has thermal overload protection mostly on single phase motor inside the motor,in the absence of overload protector the winding of motor on start and running maybe shor circuited.this should be rewind by motor rewinder.check the cost of motor rewind to a brand new motor.have choose n it.have a nice day fix my rate.

Compressor attempts to run, trips overload




Do you have the facility to top up the oil level on the compressor

If so you may find that the low oil sensor is kicking in and trying to prevent you from running the machine dry.

Samsung Ac compressor stops after 20 minutes and fan keep running. Again after 10-15 minutes if ac is restarted the cooling happens for 20 minutes and compressor stops.


eventually,cycling process is doing done if the thermostat sense the configure temperayure set up it will trigger to stop your compressor motor as well as the blower fan,blower fan independenly to you compressor.if your thingking that your compressor is tripping off,check your operating current on one line using clamp ammeter and compare to the rated current that tag on
motor compressor body,if the current flow is higher than the rated current specified on compressor motor,well problem occured it will trip your compressor,because overload protector is becoming your thermostat.but if you got same current result it was cycling process.If tripping off maybe air is present in your system call qualified ac tech, to purge out air in system.

Sounds like it is either low on gas or it is tripping the internal overload which would mean you need a new comp. Check on warranty
