SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: Kenmore fridge compressor not going on - reset circuit breaker?


Look at item 4 on this picture for location of the defrost timer. You will need to rotate it with a flat head screwdriver and you should hear a click to see if your compressor starts. On the first picture above about 0.5 inch from the top from the 12 o'clock position is the dial that you will need to rotate It should be mounted horzintally in the top of your food section. The dial could be white or black. It has 2 tabs on it and can only be rotated in the direction that the tabs would be engaged by a flat head screwdriver. Turning it backwards will result in having to replace the defrost timer straight away. So again rotate this dial and see if your compressor starts.

If it starts then you have either a bad defrost timer or 60 deg F thermostat in the freezer section coils.

If it does not start then you can have a bad compressor relay, run capacitor or the compressor itself has failed. If the compressor is hot and you hear a hum from the compressor for about 30- 45 seconds it could be any one of the 3 above.

I would be willing to go out on a limb here and say you most likely have a defrost circuit problem.
There is a remote possibility that you had a one time instance of the defrost timer sticking but on an older unit If it stuck once it will most likely stick again in the future.

My Olevia 232 s12 tv seem to have blown out, my daughter used a hair dryer while the air was on the electricity stop. used the circuit breaker everything came back on except the tv. fix it or toss it.

If your comfortable doing it take the back off and check the main power fuse on the power supply, replace it if blown but it may blow again, if it does the rectifier in the hot side of the PS board is shorted and needs replacing or it will need a new power supply board...Good luck!

No power to oven (MCB tripped but has now been reset on) but temperature light to small oven glowing faintly. If any control is turned on then this glowing light goes out. Any Ideas?

Check the bulbs in main oven. Bulb blows and takes out circuit board. A new circuit board will set you back £250 to £300. It can possibly be repaired if you can solder. need to take out the board behind the clock and find the blown track. if you can solder a jumper across it you can get it working again and it will cost you nothing. I had to do this to mine and it has been working for last 3 years.

Have an infinity spa and it has power to it but nothing will come on


Have you checked that the correct voltage is present at the board? If not it could a line in problem & GFCI breakers could be worn out. The power terminal on the board could be bad too.
You didn't mention the age of the spa but some older tubs will power up if the Hi Limit sensor has failed.
Or the board is dead.

There are a few alternatives;
Have a trained tech inspect the spa.
Replace the board
Send the board in for diagnosis or repair? There are companies who diagnose and repair spa packs/ boards usually for the same price as a normal service call. Spa circuit board repair.

After a thunder storm my roof mounted Carrier cooling/heating unit stopped working and now does nothing. Changed the time delay fuses and checked the circuit breakers and they seem fine. Is there a reset...

You may have a circuit board problem. Make sure you have power to the unit first. If you can, get on the roof take the access panel off to the electrical components. Most carrier circ boards have a flashing light display on the board itself. On the back of the panel you just took off should be a kiosk that tells you what the flashing means. If the light is dead, no color but you are sure there is power to the unit, the board is bad or there could be a fuse blown on the board. Most circ board fuses are a small 3 or 5 amp blade fuse mounted right on the circ board. I have seen many a carrier board burn out because of lightning. I hope this is not the case for you, as carrier boards are just a little expensive. Hope this helps you get some air back. Mark

There is no power coming through. I tried another location of the house and still no power. Everything else has power except the console

try using a different power cord from the wall to the unit, as well as trying another wii console on the original power cord, if nothing works, then you may need to open the unit and examine the power supply printed circuit board for any damaged or blown components. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

hi there,

if the motor hums, that means you have power to the dishwasher and it's just the display that does not work.

if the motor is not running, it's definitely the control board.

most dishwashers in Canada are wired into the electrical circuit in the house, so if the power goes out, it take the dishwasher with it.

Stopped working

I had a similar problem with a jvc 8040. when I replaced the fuse it became very obvious that the b1560 output on the center channel was blown (smoke and sparks, always a dead giveaway). I haven't fixed the center channel yet but simply unplugged the center channel board and removed it from the unit. Now everything works fine except of course the center channel. Pre outs still operate just fine so a slave amp could be used for center channel power, or you could just go and buy a marantz amp; I did and then I realized that I was lucky that the old jvc quit.
