The compressor should have an ID tag on it with a type, serial number and date code indicating month and year of manufacture, but sometimes the code is alpha-numeric and meaningless without the code chart. The refrigerator should have a serial number on the same tag where you found the model number. jot that one down and contact Maytag's warranty department. They should be able to tell you how long the warranty was at the time of sale, if the warranty was transferrable as in your case, and if there is any coverage left.

Did the realtor that sold this to you also sell the property with one of those third-party home warranties? If so, contact them for more information and get this covered. That coverage is much better than Maytag's would be in a case like this.

My 4 year old Ruud home a/c compressor stopped working. inside fan blows but compressor won't turn on...what can I do prior to calling the gas company who installed the unit...


Ruud parts warranty from factory is 5 years, the capacitor has possible gone out, it will be in the contol compartment on the out side unit and is a dual run capacitor that controls the compressor and fan motor. Recommend if capacitor is bad to replace entire capacitor. As Stated above the parts are under warranty if under five years old. To verify age the date code is in the serial number after the "F" **** week/year of manufacture. Also outside unit has independent power supply so check fuses if any and circuit breaker.

What compressor do i need


The compressors that come in units change from year to year and model to model. Depending on the age and type of unit, it could be a Copeland, Bristol....just about anything in the 2 ton range.


Best bet would be to look down and on the top or side of the compressor, you should see a series of numbers that have the model and serial numbers. The model would be the compressor you seek and the serial will help to determine the age of the compressor. Also be sure to look for a name brand such as Copeland, Bristol, Tecumseh, etc.etc..

Problems with GE GSL25JFPBS Side by Side Refrigerator IS THAT THE FAN RUNS BUT IT IS NOT COOLING AT ALL, KEEPING HEARING THIS CLICKING SOUND AND THERE IS NO SOUND FRON THE COMPRESSORS.


Hi, I have done commercial refrigeration for many, many, years and no about residential units also. What you need to do is to roll this unit out to get behind it with room to work. There will be a fiber like panel that has to come off. The clicking noise you are hearing is on and off every so many minutes give or take, Like, click pause click, a few minutes same thing. Anyway, remove this panel. You should see a small fan motor, a coil, and the compressor. Make sure the unit is plugged in and the thermostat control inside is set at its coldest setting. If it has been on for sometime and clicking, carefully place your hand on top of the compressor as it should be HOT! The clicking noise you will be able to here at the small cover on the face of the compressor covering the terminals and wires to start it. It also has a klixon relay wired in the common wire that when the compressor gets overloaded, it will click and keep the compressor from starting. It will continue to do this until it finally wears out. So, hearing this click and your compressor is hot to the touch, more then likely, you are loosing the compressor. Depending on the age of this unit and the cost of a tech changing it out, may or may not be worth it. Try this, unplug it. The small fan and coil, try and clean the front of the coil with a brush to remove all the dirt and dust buidup. Let the unit cool completely down. I have wet cold rags in the field and put on the compressor to speed this up, but be careful not to get water in the electrical connections. UNPLUG IT FIRST. After it is nice and cool, try to turn it on. If it starts, thats good and I cant say how long it will run. If it does not, the compressor is dead and locked up. A repairman may put a hard start kit on it to try and break it free, we do try this first, but it may be to far gone. Check the coil like I said and let it cool down. Hopefully it will run, but probably not. I hope this has given you some direction to follow.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Warranty on compressor


The actual age of your unit can be determined by the serial number. Based on the age indicated there they can tell you if the warranty is still valid. Your local Rheem/weather king dealer can do this for you. Most compressor warranties are either 5 or 10 years. Good Luck!

Freezer freezes OK, frig compartment doesnt get cold


Does the unit only have one compressor (black round object on back of unit). If yes then sounds as though you have lost some refrigerant (just enough to keep the freezer happy). If no (ie two compressors) check if both compressors hot. If both hot then have major problem if one cold then have a thermostat gone. Personally I think you have lost gas from your description, if so then you are looking at a dead fridge freezer. Hope this is of some help.
