Compressor of built-in monogram burning up. Should it be?

My GE monogram was making a ticking noise and the freezer wasn't working. One repairman came out and said we need a new compressor for a charge of $25oo. A GE repairman came out and said we just need a new timer. The compressor still feels very hot as do the sides of the doors when you open them. Should the compressor always feel hot?

Don't know who to believe these days. When the compressor won't start and over heats the start relay,start capacitor and external overload may be the most likely reason. The door frames have heat strips that is normal. Sea Breeze

    If the compressor is too hot to touch you need to disconnect the power to prevent damage to the internal overload until the problem with the start components are repaired. We also should check the compressor windings once cooled down to make sure the compressor is not burned out. Not likely but need to check before spending money on parts before purchasing. Sea Breeze

GE Monogram ZISS480DRSS - freezer and refrigerator both quit cooling. I had a mostly plugged condenser coil - cleaned it & still no cooling. What would be the likely component failure path to check?


replace the ptc overload relay on the compressor as this supplies power to the compressor,it may sound like the compressor is operating,but possibly only on the start windings and will be very warm to the touch,if so replace it soon so as not to burn out the compressor motor windings

GE Monogram freezer side working but refrigerator side is not.


Did you clean the condenser?  Is the unit FULLY defrosted?   Defrost fully!!!!!!
Did he check the amount of gas in the unit?  If your unit has low gas...it is in need of more.  R12 is expensive.
Check gas level:  Shut unit for at least one hour.  View compressor.  Several pipes...we're looking at the largest.  Start the unit.  This pipe will begin to frost.  If it does not clear to dry, ice or wet...stays frosted...it is low.  Get the repair guy back ... but ask how much he'll charge first.

GE monogram side by side built in refrigerator: fan behin Climate control drawer makes noise when it starts


IS THE NOISE SOMETHING HITTING THE FAN BLADE?
CHECK THE FAN ASSEMBLY BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT.

NORMAL NOISES IN THE UNIT ARE A GURGLING NOISE OR THE SOUND OF RUNNING WATER OR HISSING. THIS IS DUE TO THE FREON BEING PUSHED THROUGH THE SYSTEM AS THE COMPRESSOR RUNS. POPPING OR SNAPPING CAN OCCUR WHEN THE COILS IN THE FREEZER MOVE DUE TO A CHANGE OF TEMPERATURE.

I have a monogram zisb36drb that leaks in the freezer compartment


This can be fixed.  It's not a defect at all.  The drain is plugged.  I will warn you these are a pain the butt to get into so I would reccomend an experienced repairman to do the job.  You can expect to pay about $200 for this repair due to labor time.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.
