Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

The only thing working is the light.

The fans do not come on nor does the compressor, it is an old (1985)kenmore side by side.

The thermostat is the one that regulates all the operations in this side by side.
Bridge it and let's see if the appliance works.
Thank you

    Ok, I did not know it was a frost free model.
    We'll you have repaired it.
    Change the defrost timer is very cheap.
    When the timer goes on, it disconnects all functions and only the defrost resistance works in order to disolve the ice in the evaporator.
    Congratulations!!! you have fixed it.

Freezer not freezing its bout 12 years old do u think a shot of frioen will work


Hello,

The first thing I would do is to check the compressor and the condenser fan. Remove the cover on the back of the fridge and check how hot is the compressor? Is the condenser fan turning well? Also check the condenser coil under the fridge, it is very possible it needs cleaning.
If the condenser fan is not working properly then it has to be replaced.
If the condenser fan motor is fine and the cleaning did not help then the sealed system is low on Freon and in such case you need a certified technician to fix a leak and to charge the system.
Good luck in solving the problem.....

Kenmore side by side, fan on, lights on, compressor hot, no cool.


You probably have a bad overload/relay on the compressor . The piece which plugs onto the compressor . Or a bad fan which cools the compressor (condensor fan motor ). Also check the coils to make sure they are clean . Would need the first 3 numbers before the ones you gave , to be able to give you the part number for the o/r .

Not cooling, ice on evap. coil


After ten years, the defrost coil may be bad. That will allow the evaporator to ice up. Find the defrost timer, check it out first. Some have a manual control.

Warm refrig and freezer


You probably need some refrigerant added. There probably is a leak in the system that caused the lack of refrigerant. Get the leak fixed and add refrigerant before you blow your compressor too. Or get a new fridge.

Kenmore Not cooling


there are 2 common problems with this frig. one is the defrost timer getting stuck in defrost. in this case all lights will work but no fans and no compressor running. the other problem is the relay overload on the side of the compressor but if this is bad the fan inside the freezer will be running. sounds like defrost timer
