SOURCE: low voltage at compressor!

My parts lookup too has no images available for you refrig but i believe it to be a GE Profile with a fresh food fan (and air duct down the center of the fresh food side). All fan motors are 12vdc and run off the Lowvoltage side of motherboard. i assume you are checking voltage to comp from motherboard? How did you check relay?? Have you axcessed motherboard?? On the top of (I say top-- i belive its mounted horiz on yours but all the small wires are on the right) is all the low voltage fan motor, damper, control wiring On the bottom (or the left) side of the motherboard is the larger line voltage wiring. The connector with 3 wires is labeled def -- comp---line it should be blue. Try jumping L1 to comp. ((Just so ya know Def will energize the def heater regardless of compartment temp it does have a bimetal but it only a safety set at 100deg in case relay on board welds shut---it monitor evap compartment, frz, fresh food, (two seperate in FF) in your model))

Hello Thayden,

I understand that the Refrigerator compressor is not working on your unit. There are three possibilities of why the compressor is not working, the compressor is bad, the starter is bad, or the capacitor is bad.

To check the starter you will need to do the following (most common): Refer to picture at the bottom of the post
1. Unplug the unit
2. On the side of your compressor there is a cover this is the starter relay cover.
3. Remove the cover
4. Remove the wires
5. Remove the starter (top piece stuck on two rods)
6. Check if bad (shack it if you hear a noise/knocking it is bad and will not allow compressor to start)
7. Replace it and the bottom one the over load.
8. Reinstall in reverse

The Run Capacitor (uncommon that they go bad but possible)
1. The little black or silver box that two wires run to from the starter
2. Check to see if contacts or unit is burnt.

The Compressor
1. If you replace the above items and the compressor is not running the the problem is the compressor. This will take a licensed HVAC person to replace.

The above parts are inexpensive between $30-$50 at your local appliance parts store. There is a 50/50 chance that this will work and save you the cost of replacing the compressor or the whole refrigerator.

How do i get my condenser fan to stop running. it is cooling fine but won't shut off unless i shut it off.


Are you sure its the condenser fan? The fan is attached to the compressor power and wont run unless the compressor is running. On the other hand the fans inside the cooler will run 24/7 and are designed for continuous duty. If someone has worked on the compressor wiring you may have to re establish the wiring following the wiring diagram. I have seen condenser fans wired in hot areas to run continuously to attempt to cool down a hot compressor or compensate for a worn out or damaged condenser that doesn't get rid of the heat from the system. If that is the case a new condensing unit is probably in your future. Hope this helps good luck.

Unit powers up, fans run, no compressor start


If the fans run we know it aint the defrost timer and you are getting power to the compressor so that means you have a wire done burned off one of the compressor terminals hopefully or ya might need a compressor. Probably just a burnt wire. These are pretty tough units. Diagram and run info

Will not defrost . Is it a continuous run, 8 hour or 10 hour defrost?


Good day,
It's an 8 hour cumulative running time control. It runs when the compressor runs, and as well the defrost thermostat in the freezer compartment is closed. That's for the running mode, in the defrost mode it runs whether the defrost thermostat is open or closed, and as well whether the thermostat is on or off.
If it's a defrosting problem, it could well be the defrost thermostat, and in rare cases the main heater. They are both located behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
In order of frequency of failing,
1. Defrost thermostat
2. Timer
3. Main heater
4. Harness wiring plugs in the freezer compartment that connect these items.

I have an old Searsd Coldspot upright freezer, Thr


on the side of both defrost controls is a diagram black is normally power white is normally nuetral wire the black wire will go to the center of the switchs defrost heater
will be on one side compressor to the other white to the clock moter green was hooked to the metal case if you have a mutitester the clock moter will have constant continuity even after the timer has been turned till it clicks the heater will go on the contacts that have continuity for the shortest amount of time
on the back of most older units was a wiring diagram constant defrost has power even when t-stat is set to off
cumulative the defrost only has power when compressor is running the diagram on old defrost timer should be simaler to the diagram on the old defrost timer the lighter colered tab is normally white wire
hope you have a tester but if you are inclined hook up black and white only turn control till clicks when you have the black wire in the correct position the moter will run no matter where the control is turned
then find wire that starts compresser it will need to be placed on the switch that maintains contact the longest leaving the
heater wire to hook to the contact that stays closed for 20 to 30 minutes
most defrost controls wire the same be careful wiring is 120 volt

I have 20 yeras old Maytag model GT1928PVCW which we were very happy. Unfortauantly it just stop cooling. Fans steel working but no cooling. Is it possible to repair


Yes it is, for sure. We just need to diagnose the problem. First, if you unit has ice on the back inside wall of the freezer, you have a defrost problem that can mostlilely be solved by replacing the defrost heater. If not, we will move on.
If you can read a wiring diagram, go to www.partselect.com and enter your model number. This will bring up a blown up diagram so you can locate evey part or you unit plus your in luck, it also has wa wiring diagram included. By looking a the wiring diagram, there are only four thing that will prevent your compressor from running.
  1. Temp control
  2. Defrost timer
  3. Run cap.,Over load, PTC Relay
Checking temp control/ Take the two wires from part and connect together. If the unit starts running, you will need to replace control.
Defrost timer/ It has a round piece in the front of it with a slot on each side of the round piece that will let you turn it in only one direction. You can take a flat blade screw driver and turn. This advances the timer. Turn until you hear it click. If unit starts running, replace timer.
Run capacitor, overload and PTC relay/ If you can hear the compressor clicking around every 5 to 10 seconds, you will need to replace the part. The bast thing to do is replace all three pieces with a Supco 3 in 1. You can search Supco 3 in 1 and find one on the web. If you can use a meter, you might want to check your compressor to see if the windings are grounded. Take anyone of the 3 post coming out of the compressor and check continuity between it and ground. If it has continuity, it's bad and will cost a lot to replace. Also check for continuity between each post. If there is continuity, this is great and the Supco 3 in 1 will fix the problem. I have made this as simple as I know how but I also know that it's not simple to peolpe that don't work on these everyday like myself. I hope you the best and good luck. If you have anymore questions, please respond back and I'll do my best.

Fride not cooling on eather side..


I believe your start relay and capacitor need replaced or the compressor is defective. Don't allow it to continue to try to start until we can find the problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze
