Hi, I have a FP C250T fridge. Unit has stopped

Hi, I have a FP C250T fridge. Unit has stopped running. Replaced thermostat but still the same. Motor unit gets hot but does not start. Is there a diagnostic procedure I can follow to see what is wrong or should I just request a service call? Is it likely that the repair is more than the fridge is worth?

Hi My freezer is working great however my refridgerator side seems to be a tad warm, I have tried to clean the compressor and even turn it to cooler settings , this unit is only 1 year old


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

I have a Fisher & Paykel c250T Frdge/Freezer and it has stopped freezing and cooling


Best off to call a reputable service company such as Sears. Sounds like you need a start device for the compressor. Best off to call a reputable service company such as Sears.

Hotpoint RFA52 fridge freezer


if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way

Model 1069638380 Motor runs and never stops,


A normal freezer temperature is 0 to -10 degrees Fahrenheit. And a normal refrigerator temperature is 38 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

The compressor (motor) will shutdown when the freezer temperature is achieved. The reason the compressor continues to run is the freezer is not cold enough to satisfy the thermostat.

You have a refrigeration problem that could be caused by many things. The things you can verify is that the condenser coil is clean. On newer model units, the coil is underneath the unit and because a fan pulls the air across it, gets very dusty. If dirty then clean it with a rag and shop-vac. Unplug the power before starting and be careful of wires and copper tubing.

Another possibility is that one of the fans is not running. There is a fan underneath (mentioned above) that is usually accessibility from the back. Check that it is running. If not, replace.

There is the internal fan(or evaporator fan) in the freezer compartment. Usually, if this is not running the evaporator coil (under the freezer floor) will ice over. Check that the fan is running and that this internal coil is not freezing up.

Other less mechanical problems will require a professional refrigeration technician. Problem can be low freon charge, kinked tubing, plugged metering device. None of these problems are fixable by the owner and all require federal EPA certification and a license to repair.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool


Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.
