SOURCE: Can anyone help me troubleshoot my 1955 norge jet

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
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
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

When I changed out my Ignition switch with a new one I had the same issue. If I remember correctly it was an Anti-Theft problem. I had to reset my Anti-Theft to get them back. Should be able to google how to do that as I have since forgotten. Hope this helps.

Stopped working. clicking sound when it wants to start up. Is it the compressor or the relay switch model 8 yrs old old.


You.have to check if the compresor is working or damage. Try starting direct the compresor, Generali should be the electric part outside the compresor just change at the electric parts and should work. If you send a picture of the position on the connectors I will help you to try the compressor

Fridge defrosted and the motor seems to have stopped working, electricity working fine to it


Most likely t-stat. If the t-stat is good then move to compressor. If you hear a hum then a click and it shuts off, that is the internal overload telling you the compressor is done and needs to be replaced.

Hi, was wondering if you could help. I have an Electrolux fridge Model ER6632I that has suddenly stopped cooling. This fridge is approx 8 yrs old. I opened up to the rear of fridge and found that...



Seems that the compressor has some fault within the unit as it takes in more current under pressure. Sometimes it can be due to fault within the compressor, failure of the valve , O-rings. Now shut down the fridge for about 6 hours and then plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. , if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.

The problem you describe is have to with electric parts and not mechanical parts. So it worth a lot to fix it since it is not an expensive part.
However the electric problems are peculiar and costand like yours and sometimes take time to be identify and be fixed.
The most possible in you case are:
1. the thermsostat it might becoming stuck since it have electric contacts so when the fridge whould stop working you must check these contacts if they stay open permanetly, thus to replace the thermostat.
2.If the thermostat is ok then you need to check the starting capacitor of the compressor or the starting relay of the cmpressor the two parts in the black box attached to the compressor which one of them and sometime both ot thm have overhetaed and sometimes stuck and they can not start the compressor.
In any case even if you replace all three then it worth the cost for this fridge.

Fridge and freezer not getting cold


If it was layed down to move and not let sit for a while before using it again it would not work. Somtimes leaving in off and let it settle will straighten it out but not all time. The oil in the compressor get into the cooling lines and blockes the freon. Other than that, check the condenser coil which are near the compressor. They should be warm when the compressor is runnin. If they are not warm there is a compressor or freon problem.

Hotpoint FFA71 fridge and freezer suddenly stopped working


Sounds as though the compressor has stopped working. It feeds both compartments with control from a printed circuit above the top door.Where all your red lights are ablaze! (This can be replaced by removing the 2 screws and "clicking" out the small panel) Check that the compressor is running at the bottom rear of the fridge/freezer before anything else.

My under counter Uline refrigerator/ice maker suddenly trips GFI


I here this alot. If you have a compressor on a gfi the compressor after awhile would trip it. The compressor start amps is usually higher than the gfi is rated. So you have 2 choices. Replace the GFI and try to find one with higher amp ratings. Or install a normal outlet for your unit. Your code will usually call for a gfi, If it does then replace with a new gfi.
To explain the start amps on a compressor depending on your model could be 10 amps. This is for a split second. However the gfi can become week after time. You can also try to plug the unit into a normal outlet to make sure everything is good on the unit. I believe it is the gfi

Freezer problems


remove back panel of freezer. check if there is excessive ice build-up preventing air flow. if there is, then defrost carefully with a hairdryer (with appliance switched off) if no ice or frosting on pipework, check if compressor is running. if it is or hot to the touch or clicking, then you have a compressor fault and replacement is not diy. if compressor not running, then probably module fault
