Have you checked to ensure you actually have power @ the compressor? If so, is your start capacitor good? Is the overload on the compressor open or closed? If it is open, why? Hope this helps

If you hear it trying to come on, (the lights may even dim more than normal) followed by a "tink" noise, it's the compressor.

LG Fridge LSC26945TT compressor getting to hot and not cooling


if it's not cooling unplug it so you don't damage the compressor,hopefully you just have a bad overload and relay,it's plugged into the side of the compressor,with the machine unplugged remove the bottom back panel,look at the compressor,remove the cover on the side of compressor and remove the start device or ptc assy. call your local parts store and give them the model number and buy a new start device for your machine.if you can hear a clicking sound every once and a while and the compressor is hot change this out first,if it still doesn't start then you have a bad compressor and will be in the market for a new fridge if the compressor is running take everything out of the freezer,remove the back inside wall of the freezer and check the evap coil,if the coil is all iced up you have a defrost problem,if the evap coil doesn't have an even frost pattern covering the whole coil you have a freon leak.if you have a freon leak you'll have to replace the fridge..hope this helps

Freezer quit freezing ice cream Thur night, but everything else was fine, not everything is starting a slow thaw


either the ptc overload relay on the compressor is bad and the compressors not operating to cool the unit or the evaporator coil behind the freezers inside wall is iced up and cant let cold air out due to this blockagethen its a defrost heater/thermostat on the evaporator coil issue

Not cooling


your ptc overload on your compressor has gone out and needs replacement,locate the compressor and unplug the overload off the compressor and take it to an appliance parts place and purchase the correct replacement ptc overload and plug it back in and your good to go

My Kenmore fridge is not cooling anymore and the freezer is not freezing also properly...everything else seems okay like the lights and I can hear the motor


your fans are running,but the compressor isn't,you need to replace the ptc overload relay on the compressor as this supplies start and run current for the compressor,it unplugs off the compressor body on the unit
