Re: refrigator compressor motor

No fuse. Check for retracted pins in molex connectors in back. See if any pins are sticking up farther than others on side of plug where wires enter. If so unplug connector and push wire in. Re-connect and recheck. Also have seen this in connector in console on left ceiling of refig. section.

It may have been defrosting on a timed cycle when the compressor stopped. If any water was present at the time, it may have seeped into the electrics. Check the fuse and you have power to the on/off switch and thermostat.. If fuse blown, check all is dried out before plugging back in.

I have a frigidaire side by side #FSC23LR5JM2 that is not keeping cool enough. Age is aprox 1.5 yrs. Noticed the problem over a couple of days. Turned the temp cooler by 2 numbers in the frig and freezer,...

if the freezers staying cold but not the refrige section,then its the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section thats either frozen shut or the damper door motor is bad or without power,if nothings cold as in freezer and refrigerator sections,then its the ptc overload & relay on the compressor thats bad,unplug the ptc overload & relay off the side of the compressor and obtain an exact replacement and plug in the new replacement and it will again cool

Ibstalled new Evaporator fan motor and it doesn't seem to have power getting to it . model PLHS269ZDB2

The first thing to be sure of is you do have voltage at the motor...once your sure of this. I would advise you to check for a broken wire at every connection block..I have also seen this happen before. The defrost board controls the evaporator motor as well as, the compressor and lights etc..Its located in the fresh food side. The top left has a plastic cover that runs to back of refrig..There are two screws that secure this to the cabinet and two small dimples that go into a retainer at the front of it..Remove screws and slide the housing towards the right will pop out. then you can look at the board and see if showing any burn spots...Its possible to be bad, but look ok////Bruce Denton

Light is on but fridge will not run

there are certain posibilities as the pa refrigerator needs electricity. If the refrigerator's light doesn't work and it's motor doesn't run:

1) Check the power. Make sure the receptacle works (plug in a working lamp or a circuit tester). If the receptacle doesn't work, check for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

2) Be sure the cold control is turned on.

3) If you discover that the refrigerator is plugged into a working outlet and the cold control is on but the device shows no signs of life, leave the door closed to retain the cold air and call an appliance repairperson

I own a maytag rsw 2700 refrig. motors run lights

Hi jtc1280 when you say motors are running,does that mean the compressor motor or is this just the cooling fans.
I suggest you remove the cover on the rear bottom to access the compressor motor and check the compressor by putting your hand on the compressor be cautious when doing this the compressor may be hot if not working correctly un plug the compressor and plug back up with hand on compressor see if you can fill the compressor running this motor runs with very little noise. If this motor is very hot insure that the colling fans are working and also that the condensing coil is free of lint build up which can make the unit over heat if this area has a lot of lint build up unplug unit clean the bottom out with air hose and vacuum if no air is available just use a dust brush to clean good let the compressor cool for 30 or 40 minutes before plugging back in.
