It is likely the capacitor for the fan motor. Unless you are comfortable working with 240v this is an issue for a qualified service tech. If you are comfortable with it, replacing the capacitor is fairly simple, you can probably obtain one from most electrical supply houses. It would be the smaller of the two capacitors contained within the exterior unit, the larger one is for the compressor motor.

My electrolux ERN2820 is not working the light is on the moter is running but the freezer is defrosting and the fridge has lost it temp

Have you cleaned out the coils lately? Sometimes they become full with dust and will not cool properly. If the coils are clean, check that the fan is running. If the fan is running, maybe the compressor isn't. If the compressor is running and all else looks good it is probably low on freon.

My side by side fridge has stopped chilling down, the power is Ok, and moter seems to be working, but no cold inside. A few months ago the freezer side stopped, but as i did not use it , i just left well...

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Whats the bottom moter with fan for

Refrigerators have a condensor fan so it can cool the compressor otherwise the compressor overheats and turns off.

Make sure the condensor is clean, blow some Air though the Condensor to make sure good Air flow towards Compressors. also, you might have a bad defrost timer or Freezer Control... worst case you might have a bad Compressor... hope I can help....
