SOURCE: fan doesnt kick on to

The most likely cause is that there is air in the cooling system, you will need to bleed out the air from the system, an easy way to do this is to get a floor jack and jack up the front of the car as high as you can get it, fill the radiator and coolant recovery tank until they are full, then run the engine until it is at normal operting temp, shut it down and run a garden hose over the radiator, allow the engine to cool and check the coolant level again, remember the radiator fan does not come on until the engine is at the high end of the operting zone on the temp guage, about 225 deg F.

SOURCE: GE chest freeze won't get cold

the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.

SOURCE: 1986 Yamaha Radian stops running after 20 minutes

Sounds to me like it could be a few things... pretty interesting that it runs and shuts down...sits for a little while then fires back up. Could be something as simple as a bad ground.. maybe it needs cleaned.. if the ground is making very little contact.. the bike would run bad, and because its direct current it has to flow. The metal in the motor frame etc will hold so much DC current.. but *** soon as it load up the bike would stop sparking. Let it sit for a while, DC trickles into the battery through the slight contact, bike fires back up. OR could be bad venting of your fuel tank, or a partial clog at the pet ****.. the first is pretty easy to check, open your fuel cap and start the bike..if it does the same thing then its not a vent problem. One thing that does happen on the Radian, is the reserve fuel screen inside the tank comes loose, and then everything inside the that has built up over the years either partially clogs the pet ****, or the hose, or both. Take the tank off, pull the pet **** off..if it still has two intact tubes with good screens..you probably don't have any junk in your line..but I would pull the line off and blow through it any way... it could be some type of blockage, when the bike sets the fuel seep through, but when it runs it eventually creates a vaccuum that stops the fuel flow. Those are my two first thoughts... good luck!!

Refrigerator is not cold enough although set at highest temperature. Freezer side as slight frost starting on back panel. Water comes out of dispenser warm.


Sounds like a short in the defrost cycle. Could be leaky door gasket also. If evap coil is frozen over only half way then you have a sealed system problem.

Diverter valve on Hotpoint FFA70 recieves no power, Fridge ok


Bonjour..Your system check (hot cold) is correct. Generally all new refrig/freezers cool only the freezer & bleed cold air off to cool the refrigerator. Most diverter/airflow dampers I have seen are mechanically operated for simplicity & to keep costs down. I would unload freezer and pull the panel off where you see the fan mounted. Go slow, don't drop any screws.You may not get them back. Look at the drain pan under the evap. coil. If it has ice that is built up in layers. Suspect the defrost termination thermostat. If the evap coil is clogged with heavy frost, suspect 1 the defrost timer and 2 the defrost heaters mounted on the evap. coil. Let me know how you make out.

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling


Is the fan on the bottom on? Do you hear the compressor kick off and on within a minute? No/ Is the evaporator fan running? Do you have frost on the evaporator? Frost is a sign that the defrost isnt working. If evap fan doesnt run it wont cool the refrigerator. If everything is running and no frost buildup in freezer then you have a sealed system problem and need of a tech.

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.

Reply back if you would like more info.

Kenmore fridge bottom freezer. Freezer is cold but fridge is warm


Sounds like the start of a defrost problem, open your freezer and see if the back wall has any frost on it. if so your evap coil is in-packed with ice and it won't be long till you start to lose cooling in the freezer also. If you don't have ice on the back wall check the evap fan motor to hear if it's running ( you should hear it when u open the freezer door or feel the air movement.) note: if the evap fan motor is not running that may also cause frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If the fan is not running remove the back wall and check the fan wires for 120 volts ac.if you have power replace the motor. Also with the back wall removed you can check the defrost t-stat and defrost element you should read a closed circuit on the heater and with the evap coil frozen you will also read a closed circuit on the t-stat to. If the defrost element or t-stat check bad replace that part, if they check good replace the defrost timer. you can hit the coil with a hair dryer to thaw it out till you get the part you need, that will buy you about 3 days. Good luck hope this helps you

Hotpoint FFA70 Freezer High Temp


sum fans only kick on if cold enough

if the whole evap is frosted up u have a defrost problem

if frost is only partial u need to throw it out cause it either has a bad compressor or freon leak

check your fan by compressor and make sure coil isnt filthy too
