After power outage for about 2 hours, my freezer wasn't freezing. high temp light and alarm came on. the compressor was humming but not kicking on. i unplugged it and i heard ice falling during the night....

call a repair service or go buy a new one . could be the starter on the motor but sadly we can not test it since we have no access to it

Freeze plugs

no motor size stated, so answers will be vague....!!!
there all over, the engine, they are casting plugs.

get motor hot, turn key off, get front end, on a lift or stands
never crawl under any car with just a jack. (never trust life to china made jack seals, ever) I Use 2 HD stands,
now with FULLY hot motor, you have 12-14psi coolant pressure
and all leaks are now HAPPENING, for sure.

so just look up and see what is leaking??? amazingly easy. huh?
that is what we do.

is your Antifreeze at 50% ,measured with the $2 tool?

do you do full flushes every 2years, if not, it builds acids and eats freeze plugs to death ($$$$$$) despite EPA bs to the contrary.

Makes a humming sound in the back, and code comes up LE at start of the wash

if the motor is humming there is a fault with the motor,,it could be its just jamed up,,,however if its humming its going to get very hot,,,that wont do it any good at all, check the motor brushes first also check its not a capasitor type motor,,,if the cap has gone that will cause a hum in a motor as well

I have a Polaris LR51044 pump that is not working. When I turn it on it "hums" but won't pump water. I live in Baton Rouge, La. and we have had freezing or below freezing weather for the last 2 days. The...

Usually when a polaris booster pump hums it means 1 of 2 things; either the starting capacitor needs to be replaced (its located under the black hump on top of the motor) or the pump is bad. Most likely the starting capacitor needs to be replaces. This is where you should start since the capcitor is only $20-$30. Get a new capacitor from a local pool store, shut the power off to the motor, remove two screws on each side of black hump on top of motor, remove two wires from starting capacitor and install wires on new capacitor, replace cover and turn the pump on. If that doesn't work you will need to replace the motor.

My blower motor will not start. it hums and gets very hot. i can spin the wheel with no resistance gmp075-4

Assuming you are spinning it when the motor is humming, if the motor runs after spinning it it could be the run capacitor (replace) or open/broken start winding in motor(need new motor). Humming should indicate the motor is getting proper voltage. If motor does not try to run by spinning then open run winding in motor (replace motor).

Fridge humming and hot to touch between fridge/freeze (side-side)

It sounds like your compressor is going bad. The part you mentioned being hot is normal.

Definately an electrical problem. First check the switches, if you find a bad switch replace it. Check the wire connrctions. A bad connection will cause great frustration. If you've been carefull with the first two steps and it's still not working it's time to see if # 2 motor has siezed up. Do this only if you know what you're doing. It requires disconnecting the wires to the motor and applying 110 volts from another source directly to the motor wires. If the motor just hums and gets hot, it's time to replace it or take it to a small motor repair shop. It might be wise to check the Repair Directory for a repairman.

Hums and freezes up????

The fan motor must have been stopping. If the fan stops, for sure the fins will freeze because there is no air flowing. common Fan motor problems defective bearing or bushing and starting condenser. If the bearing is defective, it will heat up and seize. Have the fan motor checked. The fact that the fins are freezing, means that there is enough freon and the compressor is working.
