Question about Beverage-Air Refrigerators

2 Answers

Have a 3 slide door refrig-freezer. Quit working, threw the breaker switch. I pulled the electrical box cover and capacitor was blown. Replaced capacitor, started up again and within 3 minutes quit working again, threw the breaker again. Heard a few 'clicks.' If I check compressor with Ohm meter, what should I read to know the compressor's still good?

We need to find out if the compressor has had a burn out first. If you have an ohm meter and a few minutes we will know. Let me know, I hope not, but let me know if you want me to tell you how to test it, Sea Breeze

    Unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel that covers the compressor. There should be 3 wires going inside the cover of the compressor. Mark all 3 and mark their location so if compressor is OK you can put them back in same order. The plastic cover may snap on and you may need to squeeze the sides to unlock the cover and sometimes there is a metal clip holding the cover in place. Remove the cover. May look hard but it's simple. There will be three connections under the cover and 2 will go through the start relay. Unplug them leaving the three prongs exposed. They may be marked R =Run, S=Start and C=Common. Set your meter on continuity and then begin by testing 2 at a time until you have checked S to R and R to C an C to S and S to R again. You should get a reading all the way around. If no reading between any of the pairs as you go around you should get no reading between any two the compressor has an open winding and is defective.

    Then if it passes that test then touch one probe to R and the other to the copper pipes or clean metal on outside of compressor, then S to metal outside and C to metal outside. If you get a reading this way even just a little. The compressor is a burnout. Then let me know what you find. Thanks for the rate, Sea Breeze

Hello I have a Dewalt D55153 electric air compressor it was cold outside i tried to start it it started for a minute then quit not will not do anything I can not find reset switch?


Check your electrical supply. Try plugging something in the receptacle the compressor is plugged into. If that does not work then start going back to the electrical supply box. If its plugged into a GFI maybe the GFI needs resetting. If not then check your main box and see if you have blown a fuse or circuit breaker. Sometimes when compressors start up cold they pull a lot of hydro.

My suburban dsi rv hot water keeps throwing breakers


Appears to be a short in tank circuit probably cause by a water leak in tank. These usually wear a rusty hole in the tank inside the cover and are not seen unless the thermostat covers are taken off. I would remove them and do a visual thoroughly. Anytime a fuse blows or a breaker trips is always a dead short unless you have a bad breaker. I would check those as well for vibrating, chattering noises, and/or smoking. If any of this persist, replace breaker. A melted heat element could trip them, but not usually for it leaves an open circuit instead of a shorted one.

Power windows stopped working and replaced the main switch but still not working . where is the fuse for the power windows?


Locate the fuse panel just to the left of your steering wheel, facing the driver's side door.

  • 2 Open the panel by pulling the cover outward. Look at the fuse listing on the inside panel of the fuse box to identify the location of the fuse you wish to replace. The location and amperage of each fuse varies slightly between all Ford Explorer models, so it's important to check the corresponding number listed on the inside fuse panel.
  • 3 Use the fuse puller in the fuse box and carefully remove the fuse for the electrical malfunction you're experiencing. Examine the fuse to see if it's blown, represented by a burned-out wire. Compare it to another fuse that works if you're are unsure.
  • 4 Discard the blown fuse and replace it with one of the same amperage. The amperage for each fuse is listed on the inside cover of the fuse box.
  • 5 Replace the fuse puller and cover the fuse box. Start your Ford Explorer and check to see that the electrical issue is resolved.

    There is a clicking sound like something is trying to turn on, the freezer has quit cooling and now the frig is begining to shut down what can it be?


    How To Replace the Compressor Relay The compressor relay is accessed from the lower rear of the refrigerator. The compressor relay is located in the terminal box which on the side of the compressor.
    Before replacing the compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged.
    The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.
    bobicehouse_64.jpg

    Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay (labeled "A" below), overload protector (labeled "B") and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor.


    Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.


    Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
    Inspect the connector for corrosion. If it is corroded it should be cleaned or replaced
    Reattach the wire to the new compressor relay and press the relay back onto the compressor terminals. Replace the terminal cover box and plug in the refrigerator.

    Our Hotpoint RB525D all of the sudden wont turn on. It seems like it might be a power issue. Is there a fuse that might be blown?


    First thing to do is to find your electrical panel box. You will have fuses or breakers. Locate the one that is associated with your range. If you have fuses it will be at least a 30 amp. If it is dark in the glass viewer, change it out with a new one. If you have breakers, find the correct one by the list that the installing electrician wrote on the inside of the panel box cover lid. Once located move the breaker switch to the right very firmly. Then flip the switch back to the left, you will hear a definate sound to indicate that you have switched the breaker on. If the switch stays in place and is not thrown back to the middle or right, go turn your oven on. If it threw the switch you have a short of some kind, I recommend calling an electrician or an appliance repairman at that point.

    Dishwasher is not working. No power. I checked the electric box and everything is fine. Pulled dishwasher out, and it seems to be plugged in.


    If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

    Power from the house
    Door switch
    Wiring
    Timer or selector switch
    Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

    Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

    Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

    Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

    I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
    Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.
