    Compressor warm

    The condensor (this is the panel on back?) is cold and clear of dust

    We have a pet rabbit that sometimes gets into the garage where this fridge is and chews wiring. fridge wiring o.k. but is it possible she has pierced the gas line (cant see anything obvious) is there simple way to check the gas has not leaked

Take back panel off. feel the motor on compressor. is it warm or cool? make sure the condenser coil is not clogged with dirt.

    you can buy a simple leak detector for freon. its a burner that screws onto a small propane cylinder. you light the flame and throttle it down till the flame is small, then you pass the rubber hose near any suspected leaks. the flame will change color from a deep blue to almost a green if freon is detected.

I have a samsung fridge/freezer. Production date 2007. Model#RS20NRSV5/XSA both the fridge an freezer not getting cold The lights are on but no cold air.An cant hear anything working at the back.


Your compressor is not working that's why its not cooling and you cant hear anything.
Possible cause:
  1. thermostat is set to off or defective
  2. defective capacitor that's why your compressor failed to run.
  3. defective compressor motor
  4. Freon leak or no freon at all.
Solution:
  1. check thermostat switch or relay
  2. check capacitor and wiring.
  3. check compressor motor.
  4. Check Freon pressures.

Our fridge has been unplugged and unused for a couple of years. We plugged it up, everything seems to be running, we hear the motor humming, the lights are on but neither the freezer nor the fridge are...


After such a long preriod of not being used the fridge probably needs re-gassing. You will have to call someone in to carry this task out.

MZD2766 fridge light works but the fridge and freezer is not working. The water dispenser and ice cube not working either. I did hear buzzing coming from inside the top fridge side occassionally.


it could be a defective cold control,you can use a jumper wire to bypass this and see if the compressor starts,or it could be a bad ptc overload on the compressor itself,and these are easily changed too

My GE Adora side by side refrig. has stopped making ice and I am having a hard time regulating the settings on it. The freezer is too cold and the refrig. section isn't cold enough. I also have noticed...


Defroster circuit/timer has failed.

The water line to the icemaker has probably frozen,so no ice. The cooling coils are in the freezer, and the cold air moves to the fridge via vents and circulation fan.

When it all ices up, no air gets to fridge, fridge gets warm.

Many models have a mechanical defroster timer located under the lower front kick panel. Manually rotate the timer until you hear the compressor stop.

Defroster heater then should come on and you hear scorch/hiss/gurgle of defrost sounds. If the timer is working, the fridge should come back on after about a half hour or so.

Sometimes timer fails, sometimes heater element fails. There is also a defrost thermostat that's part of the heater assembly.

Camper fridge dont cool


I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.

Rattle and Gurgling noises


It's the fan bouncing off the fan-motor housing. The best way to stop this is to shim the motor mount so the fan will ride with the motor shaft "out" preventing it from bouncing. When you raise the fridge on one corner you are doing the same thing the shim will accomplish.

The draining gurgling sound is probaby freezer defrost water being pushed down the drain tube into the drip pan at the bottom. The door action pushes/pulls air in the tube and pushes out water.
