Make sure the compressor fan motor is running and is not blocked from turning when the fridge is sitting level.

Is there a recall on this product? My compressor and fan run but no water is collected. I know other Amana dehumidifiers were recalled for fire risk due to compressor overheating so I took cover off and...


Your description indicates a loss of refrigerant in the dehumidifier. The metal heat exchanger above the water collector should become cold when the compressor is running - if it does not, your dehumidifier likely has lost it's refrigerant charge. You will have to take it to a certified (refrigerant handling) technician to repair. It may make more sense to replace with a new dehumidifier.

Check the CPSC website for dehumidifier recalls. they will have details of the brands/models/serial numbers of recalled units.

Compressor is hot, but will not start. Just keep hearing a relay / contact clicking ebery few minutes.


Could be bad start/over load relay, or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 to 40 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. When the start/over load relay fails, it can apply power to both the compressors start coil AND it's run coil at the same time for to long and it very quickly causes and over load situation. I bet your "Starting Components" (start/over load relay) are bad. Any decent appliance parts store will have what you need. Just take in the make, model, and serial number of tour frig.

No ignition


Hello Maurice, I am happy to assist you. However, I'm not certain I understand your question or concern? By no ignition, are you referring to the refrigerator will not start? Do you hear the compressor running? Is the refrigerator cooling properly? May I please have the model number? You can typically locate the serial tag inside the cabinet on the on the left or ride side wall. With this information I can address the issue at hand. Thank you and I look forward to your response.

Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer side by side not kicking on. Both freezer and refrigerator not cooling.


If the unit is not cooling in either section of the appliance, you are experiencing some form of sealed system issue. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. Unless the unit is displaying an error code, often alpha-numeric, then you would need to contact your manufacturer and then a professional to move forward accurately.

Hi,

It sounds like the compressor is going bad, but you can try to change the start components and overload to make sure they aren't at fault......

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Not cooling good


There is a fan down by the compressor that aids in cooling compressor and getting rid of the water that comes out of the freezer during defrost cycle. I am sure that you took the paper cover off the back of the unit on the lower back side so your unit might not have a fan. Now lets look at the fan inside the freezer is it running can you hear it when you open the door? Does the compressor make a clicking sound as it is hot to touch and trying to come on? get back with me ok ken

Model # PLFU1778ES Fridgidaire


tilting it would not do any harm while running the tilting theory is if you lay a fridge over on its side the oil in the compressor can run into the suction tubing and it is recomended not to plug it in right away . this is to alow the oil time to run back into the compressor housing. did you posibly loose some air space around the freezer. refrigeration is all about the removal of heat. if you block the air flow around the unit it may not be able to aceave the low teperatur set points. hope this helped
