My fridge knocks when running


Your fridge's compressor motor is suspended inside the compressor housing on three or four springs. These springs are designed to hold the motor load in a vertical position. Transporting a fridge on it's side can stretch or break these springs which can cause a shudder stop condition (the fridge makes a shuddering banging noise everytime the compressor stops and sometimes when it starts).

It's a good idea to let a fridge sit for a bit anytime it is moved. Over night won't hurt but an 8-10 hours is more than enough time some say less.


the internet consensus seems to be that you should limit the amount of time the unit is not upright. And as stated above, leave it upright at least overnight before starting it. Apparently damage can arise from mixing of lubricant and coolant, so damage is more likely in an older unit with worn seals.

My fridge is not cold


This normally indicates that the gas is low. If compressor runs continuously, but fridge does not cool, then you must have a regas done. Dont let it run like this cos it can damage compressor by overheating.

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.

Smoke from underneath fridge


HI,

Unplug your fridge, inspect the relay package mount to the compressor, this may be where you have an issue. If shorted inspect the terminals on the compressor first before ordering any parts, as if damaged terminals are present, a new compressor is needed.

I hope this helps, good luck.

Quick reference to your compressor says that it is a 120 V powered regular compressor.

It might be simple as starting device failure on compressor. Either capacitor or relay. Worst case compressor gone. Still not crazy expensive compared to a DC powered compressor.

Shut off the fridge (pull the plug) to prevent further damage to compressor and call a local service guy if you want to save the fridge.

Hi, my fridge freezer keeps making the electric trip out. help!!!


Hello,

Try this:
Turn your thermostat as warm as it will go, you are trying to isolate the compressor and keep it from turning on. If your fridge has an "off" position, then turn it off. Reset breaker, plug refrigerator back into the outlet. If the fridge trips while "off", then you are likely looking at a damaged cord / wiring.

If the breaker doesn't trip, unplug the fridge, and move the thermostat to the warmest position possible. Plug fridge back in, If the breaker holds, then you are on right track. Slowly move the thermostat to a cooler setting. You want to just reach the point where the compressor tries to start. If breaker holds here, then you are in good shape so far. It indicates a problem with the defrost heater (if equipped), or the ice maker (if equipped). If the breaker trips as soon as the compressor tries to start, your compressor may be damaged (bad and expensive).

Sounds like the start relay has become bad/defective and it should be unplugged until we can have a look at it closer to see if possibly something other than the start relay is the reason for causing this failure. Depending on your model number a defective defrost control board or fan could start this cycle of damage to the compressor start relay and compressor if not unplugged until repaired. Please see if you can find the model number and I will be able to tell you more about the cause and assist you in the repair, Thanks, Sea Breeze
