Compressor Runs Temporarily, But Not Maintaining Temp

I have a three year old 2015-WCOL that stopped cooling. Light works, condenser reg vacuumed and the door seals correctly. However, when I turn the dial to power it on, the compressor runs and cools to a certain point, but then shuts off and does not come on again to maintain the temperature. The only way I can get it to power up again is to turn the unit off, let it sit for a few minutes, and then turn it back on. It repeats the same cycle each time. The compressor will run for a short time, but again not enough to cool to proper temp. Control panel? Thermostat?

SOURCE: cools at start up....then gets warm..compressor is warm.

I would need to know the model of this. However if the condenser fan is Not runing then the problem is that. If it is then it could be the sealed system and you will need a tech to check it out.

SOURCE: Refrigerator compressor motor will not run.

Does the fan work? If yes then the compressor has a relay and overload that might be bad. Or it could be a compressor that is bad. If its a compressor then you will need to have a tech verify that it is the problem. If nothing is running then it could be a thermostat thats not switching it on. Let me know if you need any more help with it.

My condenser fan runs and blows cool air but isnt cooling down the house. Any help.


Check the outdoor unit (condensing unit). Keep in mind, because the condenser fan is running it's not an indication that the compressor is working. On a split system,there's a dual capacitor that serves the fan and the compressor. The capacitor has three terminals.
1. common
2. fan = fan
3. Herm = compressor
This is a common problem; The outdoor fan (condenser fan) runs, but not the compressor (you have to know the sound of a running compressor or you'll mistake it for the sound of the fan) doesn't, because the compressor side of the capacitor is too weak to give it that needed phase angle that it requires to start. If you're referring to the outdoor fan spinning, but no cooling, I can bet the compressor isn't working and needs a new capacitor. Very common problem, I see it all the time. Before you change the capacitor, make sure that you cut the power to the unit, and then use an insulated tool such as a screwdriver and short the terminals together first. A capacitor holds a charge even after being de -energized.Buy the new one with the same exact rating written on it as the old one. Do not mix up the wires when replacing. Write it down or take a picture with your phone

GE Eterna stopped cooling. Not even 2 years old!


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Check the fans especially the condenser fan. The noise if you listen close is probably the klixon cycling because the compressor is hot. If the condenser is plugged (real dirty), sign of a clean house, and/or the condenser fan is bad you will not get cooling. If the condenser fans operating properly and the fans inside the freezer and refrigerator are operating that would indicate serious problems assuming the compressor is operating.

Good Luck,

Door and rubbers are extremely hot and we are burrning ourselves while opening and taking food out


Your refrigerator has a stopped up Condenser Coil that needs cleaning with a vacuum cleaner. Also check that the Condenser Fan is working. The Condenser Fan may be bad....It sits under the bottom of the ref near the compressor and runs to cool the compressor. Hopes this helps! Handy Henry

Freezer / Refrigerator not cooling


When the fans are running the compressor should also be running. If the compressor is hot but not running you have a compressor problem. If the compressor is running check for frost on back wall of the freezer compartment which would indicate a defrost system problem. At five years old have you cleaned the condenser where the heat is transferred to the outside air in the room?
