SOURCE: compressor getting hot

The compressor as well as the evaporator coils will get hot when the freezer is getting cold. Simple principle: Refrigerant gets cold and there must be an equal reaction, something getting hot. Just like the heat transfer in your car with the engine heating the radiator which dissapates the heat. hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: Compressor area above refrigerator is getting very hot

Hi,


Check Thermostat.
Proper Cleaning/Defrosting of fridge and freezer.
Proper Placing and Distance from wall.
If your hand bear the body temperature of that specific area then its normal.
Contact technician to verify Freon pressure.


Best of Luck,

Regards:
Hassan

SOURCE: Fridge and freezer are not cold. Stopped working

:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Try the control relay/ condenser thats attached to the compressor and provides a momentary spike to start the compressor start windings prior to the unit going into run mode. reasonable and easy to fix

Compressor gets very hot


The compressor has a start device that could be the problem. If you remove it it should not rattle if it does it is very likely the problem. If it doesn't rattle then it could be your compressor. Check the start device first. it is located directly on the side of the compressor. and is easy to remove and install anoter.

My kic fridge have 2 compartments. Freezer and fridge. only the fridge part dont work help please


The freezer is where the heat is removed from the box and cold air should circulate from the freezer into the refrigerator section. Something must be blocking the vent between the two. There is only one cooling unit; it cools the freezer and is also vented into the fridge for sub-freezing temperatures.

Your Kenmore freezer is made by Gibson (Frigidaire) Your model number for your freezer is 253.24092102 I believe the problem is a defective 216979700 Main Control Board Look over the 216979700 Main Control Board for signs of burn marks or heat damage. Sometimes you can see damage but not always.I need you to do a few things when you see the freezer defrosting like this. Feel the top of the compressor and see if it is becoming extreemly hot while it stops freezing and begins to melt the ice in the freezer. Here is a photo of the=> 25324092102-Compressor-Components Should your freezer compressor location number 29 in that photo be getting hot it could be a defective 216649315 Relay and Overload Kit location number 30 in that photo is the 216649315 Relay and Overload Kit Location number 55 in that photo is the 5304464438 Run Capacitor If the motherboard looks OK but the compressor is getting hot and trying to start and stop (short cycling) I would begin by first changing the 216649315 Relay and Overload Kit and the 5304464438 Run Capacitor If you could respond by answering my post I believe I will be able to help you solve this. I am here should you respond, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer not freezing and fridge not cooling


Check the back wall of the freezer for ice buildup.
If yes, a defrost parts problem.
Check the freezer fan. Is it running?
If no, replace the freezer fan.
Check the condenser fan at the compressor. Is it running?
If no, is compressor hot?
If compressor is hot replace condenser fan motor.
If compressor is not hot.
Replace the compressor start relay.

OVERHEATING COMPRESSOR


you can check its starting components. it could be a bad capacitor or a bad start relay. if the compressor starts from cold, it could start right away but as it heats up, it should be able to start also, since after running for a few hours, the compressor will really get hot, it would stop at defrost cycle and re start again after about 30 mins. since it is still hot, if it has a defective starting components, it can not start and that is the time it would overheat.

in any case that the starting components are all ok, then you have a partially burnt compressor. it would run while cold and can not run when hot because the resistance of the wires changes as it gets hot. with this kind of problem, you need to replace the compressor. as you have said, the fan at the condenser is running. if the fan at the condenser is not running, that is also a cause for the compressor to overheats. i hope i was able to help...
