I have an gss221ibma side by side. the freezer no longer freezes but the refrigerator works. Also around the doorframe of the freezer it is quite warm and sometimes hot. please help.


Hello, pull the unit out away from the wall remove the cardboard or metal cover down the bottom which will give you access to the compressor area. Assure that the compressor fan motor which is the fan that cools the compressor is running if it is not then you will have to replace the compressor fan motor. Unplug the unit until the compressor cools if you leave the unit plugged in for a long time you can cause damage to the compressor itself. . If you do not have another place to store your food until you get the new compressor fan motor leave that cardboard or metal panel off the unit if you happen to have a large box fan put it in back of the unit this will cool the compressor until your new part arrives. I have had to wait 8 days for a compressor fan motor at one time and the customer I repaired the unit for had no other place to store there food. Note this fan has to be constantly running on the compressor until you are able to replace the compressor fan motor. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks
Rick
p.s make sure you have your model number when you order your part I tryed looking that model number up but it did not come up on the look up site if you need me to locate the part number that you would use to order the compressor fan motor message me back the make and exact model number of your unit Thanks again

If you have the door alarm continuously beeping you will need to try and hard reset the unit. Turn the circuit breaker for 4-5 minutes and retry the unit. But if still the 5 beeps are coming on, then its problem with control panel board.Its not detecting door closed.------- The control board needs to be inspected.---------- If the doors are not getting closed, that means some cold air is getting out and thts why temp is not getting set.This is one possibility of temperature problem.-------- But if both doors are closed tight and no issue of air getting lost out, then other possibility for this problem is weak compressor.-----------

The compressor just keeps on running.The problem is weak compressor.The refrigerant in the compressor is got low.The compressor is weak.The compressor needs to be replaced.-------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.------------ But as you mentioned that freezer not cooling this indicates problem with compressor.When compressor cools the freezer section then fridge section gets cold.If freezer section is not getting properly cold then fridge section will not cool properly/.So the problem relates to compressor.---------- In the compressor there is a refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this Freon the compressor cools the freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling agent.The compressor will stop cooling when coolant gets leaked from its chamber.--------- Again recharging the Freon is possible, but the cost for that recharging is approx the cost of new compressor.So its always advisable to get compressor replaced.Because new compressor has warranty for few years.------------------ You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

please make sure your electrical connection to the compressor is correct and tighten. electricity supply is straight and not fluctuate i mean constant supply for unit and then change new run capacitor and make sure ground wire must connect to the air conditioner,s body and check copper filter and any other copper pipe is not block .
i think it cab be an electrical problem so check all electrical device and then re-install new compressor.

Do you have an amp meter? and volt meter. Are you sure that the compressor is getting power? The click may simply be a relay closing but no power. Check both sided of the relay. You will need to trace the power and make sure that the compressor is getting power. Then check the amps to see how much power it's pulling.

do you have a recovery machine and gauges you need to tap both sides to check the high to and it needs to be vaccumed down to remove moisture ,find and fix the leak. leaks arnt verry common un less someone broke a line somehow. if the compressor is running it is more likley it has a restriction or bad valve in compressor, hooking to high and low sides will determine which if is less than 5 years old it could be under warrant still most sealed systems have a longer warranty than the rest of it is the evaperator getting cold at all.

New Fridge beeping but no cooling


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Compressor runs constantly, fridge cools, but not as cold as new


If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.

Good Luck and hope this gets it done for you.

Look for signs of oil and you will have found the leak. Compressors depend on the cool gas returning to help cool the inner motor. At 12 pounds to recharge and leak detectors that measure less than .5 Oz per year leak rate does not figure that the leak can't be found.
10% of the oil from the compressor circulates with the refrigerant. The gas leaking will dissipate but the oil at the leak point will still be evident.
