First I will check the pressures , should be 25 low side and 140 high for freon 134a ,but if you have the same pressures in both sides , the compressor is not pumpping and has to be replaced,and if there is negative pressure in the low side and over 180 or more on the high side ,there must be a restriction in the filter dryer or in the capilar tube,in this case replace the dryer , vacumm the system for about 45 minutes and recharge the unit with the rigth amount of freon in oz. using an scale.But if still is restricted you have to replace the capilar tube and also the filter dryer and repit the vacum and charging process.

True gdm 26 no longer cooling. Internal tem 80 degrees, Condensor fans running, Coil is not showing any frost or icing. Removed cover and cleaned coil and removed dust and dirt. Went out "all of a...


sounds like the compressor is not running. The condenser fans are located at the compressor. The fans in the conditioned space are the evap fans. A refrig usually does not have any device controlling the evap fans, they are to run 24/7. Freezers have other controls. Start there and let me know if I can help further.

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Upright freezer quit cooling, interior fan runs, compressor runs


The coils are most certainly there probably located under your unit. Clean them thoroughly. Look under and to the very top of that space.

Your pressure sound pretty good. I would check the thermostat and the relay on the compressor. If you are getting no frost on your coil, that is usually a tall-tall sign of a bad compressor then it would be better to just replace the unit.

GE PSC23NSD SS refrigerator malfunction


Check the cover in back of the freezer for for frost build-up. I think Frost reached the evap fan-blades and stopped it from blowing cold to the ref-side. Contro;s can be confusing. The ON-OFF controls how long the compressor runs, and the other dial how open or choked the airflow from the freezer into the refrigerator. Sometimes it happens that you have that flapper shut and no air is getting moved to the reefer. If frost is on the cover you have dead heater elements on the evap coils or a faulty hi-temp limit switch, which is the disc thingee at the top of the coils. A bad timer also may disallow it going into defrost - think about it. Chris in big bEar

Refrigerator cools, but no freezer fan & no condensor fan running


Check the back of you fridge and make sure the coils are clean. If you have access to a small air compressor, blow everything out and make sure the motor are is clean. The build up of dirt on the coils will not let the heat escape during the cooling process.
