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

A amana French door fridge no fan water or.icemaker lights come on but no fan turning on or cold


Many Amana model fridges have the freezer fan wired through the bi-metal thermostat that is clipped to the evaporator. Either your compressor has a bad start device and that is why it is not cooling, or the compressor IS running and the unit has lost its refrigerant charge. Running compressor with no cooling = buy a new fridge.
Compressor hot, but not running = start relay replacement to get the compressor going. Start Device 8201786

My KTM3900WB fridge/freezer is not freezing and cooling in the fridge. The light goes and can hear the motor is running.


You are either low on freon refrigerant, or your compressor is frozen (usually due to low freon) or your compressor is bad. the motor will cycle on and off even though the compressor is not working. the refrigerator away from the wall and look compressor will be a nerf football sizedand usually black cylinder. It could be very hot or cold/frozen. can also unplug the refrigerator leave it for a few hours and plug it back in if it work you are low on freon. You need a repairman

My kenmore fridge with bottom freezer, model#596.785.83801. Both fridge and freezer won't stay cold. Fan on and lights are on. Help!!


Check to see if the compressor in back is running. It could need a new compressor start device. If it is running it could need a new compressor. The compressor cooling fan could be stalled and the compressor is overheating.

My fridge wasnt cold yesterday but the light was on and the freezer worked but this morning the freezer has started to defrost and everything was warm in the fridge


If you cant hear the compressor running and he fan under the fridge and in the freezer compartment are not running. The problem would be your defrost timer has quit on the defrost mode. Your defrost timer should be located in the fridge side behind the back plastic liner or if your controls and light are in the center top it will be there. The timer is plastic with a metal motor on one side. There is a shaft in the center that a flatblade screw driver will fit in turn it and you will hear audible clicks and the fans and compressor should kick in. I hope this helps. If the fans are working but the compressor is not the compressor is bad or the start relay on the compressor may be bad it is located under a plastic cap on the compressor and is about the size of a nickle and is connected to one of the 3 prongs coming out of the compressor. Remember to always unplug the fridge before working on it. good luck

Kenmore Elite Trio Refrigerator not cooling


No, it is not a failed condenser. You need to see if the compressor is running though. When it runs you shaould have a fan in the freezer running, a fan underneath the fridge running, and the compressor should be running. I would be willing to bet that either the compressor is bad, or the start relay on the compressor.

Refrigerator was left on, now does not seen to cool


If you cannot hear the compressor running, the problem may be: Bad compressor, Bad Relay, or if there is no lights or anything in the fridge, it may be the power supply. You can test each device with a multi-meter.

Fridge is defrosting


please take a look at the compressor if it is running.

if the evaporator fan is running, the compressor should be running as well to cool the fridge.

if the compressor is running, then you have a problem with refrigerant. there could be a leak in the system.
have a qualified technician check your unit for further repair.

tnx 4 using fixya,
