Is the wiring correct? Fan runs when condenser is hot / high pressure not just when compressor runs so check condenser sensor.

We have a Samsung Silver Nano Health System Fridge/Freezer. The outer skin is very warm. Is this normal.??


FRIDGE COILS or door walls SEEM VERY HOT:

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly but shut off with each defrost cycle.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

the reason the outer side of the door seal area is getting hot is the compressor is over heating, probably the condenser fan motor to your compressor is bad.
It should be a little warm but not hot. they don't use heaters anymore ( some older models still use heaters) around the doors, instead they use the condenser coils to remove condensation and moister, you might want to check your condenser coils on the bottom or back of fridge to see if they need cleaning
If the condenser coils/condenser fan are all plugged up they need cleaning and/or the condenser may fail or has failed..

The ones that use an electric heater will have an "energy saver" switch that will turn it off.: God is the reason I give you free advice so God is good!

Monitowoc QY0604A air cooled ice machine


The condenser fan should cycle during pressure changes and is normal for your model. If for some reason harvest is being affected by abnormal cycling of your QY0604A would indicate a mechanical or electrical problem and would require an experienced technican to make adjustments.

Freezer not working and vacuum condenser flashing


Its an indication that your compressor is running hotter than normal due to a dust/hair clogged condenser coi. Remove the machine compartment cover on the top. This is usually held in place with two 12" long spring clips, sometimes its held in place with two screws, the former will tilt out by hand, the latter will not. Look at the outer side of the condenser coil, opposite from the compressor(s) and the fan motor. is it thick with dust and pet hair? If you can see any aluminum shining, its probably not that bad, and i would then check to see if the condenser fan motor is running. This fan motor pulls in cooler air from your kitchen, across the condenser coil, through the fan itself, then blows it further across the compressor(s). If this fan is not blowing, the compressors wont get cooled, and prematurely shut off during refrigeration cycle. If this fan is blowing, and condenser is cleared, you have more serious problems, and i would recommend you have an Expert Sub-Zero Refrigerator Repair service inspect and diagnose your problem

Condenser fan always runs so freezer won't maintain temps. What makes the condenser fan run? How can I get that fan to cycle?


Good day,
The fan motor runs when the thermostat asks it to.
If the machine is not at the proper temperature, the fan will run 24/7.
You have a cooling problem with the machine.
here are some areas to check.
1. The fan motor in the freezer compartment. It is behind the rear panel. You should be able to hear it running when you open the freezer door.
2. The defrost system has failed. Once again, open the freezer door, if you see frost built up on the rear panel, Either, the defrost timer, defrost thermostat, or main heater has failed.
3. The compressor is bad, or the start components mounted on the side of the compressor have failed.
4. Refrigerent has leaked out, or the system has an internal restriction.
The last 2 items are best left to a trained repair technician.

Vending machine issues


Only the fan at the compressor turns on and off with the compressor cycle. The evaporator fan runs steady to maintain air circulation and temperature balance and to affect evaporator defrost in the off cycle. Sometimes the condenser fan will run continuously to assist in the evaporation of condensed moisture from the evaporator drainage.
