    We unplugged the refrigerator and removed everything out of it. We let it sit unplugged overnight. We plugged it back in this morning and neither the refrigerator or the freezer appear to be cooling. The copper pipes underneath are slightly cool. Something sounds like it is trying to start up periodically and then stops. I am afraid the compressor is not working. It is very hot to the touch. But no cooling seems to be happening.

"I took it to autozone to check the engine light and it said that there is something wrong with the cooling fan circuit." AutoZone may have isolated the problem to the cooling fan circuit.

5 year old whirpool gas dryer heat shuts off after running for 10-15 min. Changed the thermal fuse.


Well you know you have heat for a little while so this must be something that quits when it heats up but runs when it cools back down. The ignitor is working and the flame sensor. The only other thing in that same circuit is those operator coils.e48860d.jpg They will quit when hot. They cool off and work some more. Replace those guys and your troubles will be ova.fec351c.jpg

My MSD2756g is my back-up frig and it just quit working. I have power to the lights, but no cooling. Any trouble shooting tips to decide whether to trash it or get it repaired, it's about 10 years old.


is it running? if so, are all motors running, is it not cold anywhere, is it cold somewhere, is it not running, that could be a few different things as well. My advice, pay a house call from a local repair company and find out for sure. many many times its a minor repair, indeed worth fixing since older refrigerators will last 3-4 times, yes 3-4 times as long as a newer model. some more than that.

Compressor won't stay on...


My guess is that you have a problem with one of the following:

Start relay...this gives a quick shot to the compressor to start the cycle...if it doesn't shut it will go to overload. The capacitor in the start circuit which assists the start relay or the compressor itself. Best bet: get a service guy in.
