    If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

    Most probably problem is in the relay or capacitor, it's on the back side of your refrigerator near compressor.
    If the relay and capacitor are fine than there is a problem in the defrost timer.

Will compressor have anything to do with freezer stop freezing


Yes, if the compressor stops running, refrigerant cannot circulate so heat inside the freezer cannot be carried to the outside. If the compressor is running and the freezer is still not freezing, the likely reason is that the refrigerant is lost due to leakage.

I have a kenmore freezer model# 253 9185211. I had it in storage and brought it home ,connected it.Red light on top is on. I set the dial on 4. I can hear something turn on,but freezer wont freeze. Lost...


the lock is only to prevent the door from opening, it does not cause the unit not to cool properly. If this is a chest freezer, a not uncommon occurrence can happen in similar situations, used for a while, then not plugged in for a period of time, and when its used again stops cooling. The lack of usage causes the refrigerant lines in the cabinet walls to rust, and therefore the refrigerant leaks.

You might consider a service call just to make sure.

The top will not stay cold everything else is working fine.Freezer freezes but the top wont stay cold.


To get £ press down and release the Num Lock key located in the upper left part (To make num lock key on) of the number pad on the right side of your keyboard so that the LED above is lit and release that key. Then hold down the Alt key and type 156 using that number pad.

Let me know if this helped

Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing


If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

Fridge freezer not working but lights on


Our new 10 day old top frig/bottom freezer stopped freezing, then the top refrigerator stopped cooling, but the light was working and you could hear some motor running and an occasional "clicking" sound. One internet blogger adsvised unpluging the appliance for 1/2 hour. Another advised 2 hours. Then plug in the appliance and see if it started cooling/freezing again. Our experience = nothing. We called the repair folk and the new frig/freezer had a failed compressor and a broken timer!! We were not thrilled. Suprisingly the store we bought the ap[pliance from gave us a $50 gift card to compensate for the lost food. They didn't have to do that - so ask for it; can't hurt.
