Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have Franklin model HDWC35. My problem is that the compressor will not stop running when it reaches the desired temperature. The temperature guage says that it is the correct temp but when it is checked it is in the low 40s instead of the 58 it claims and is set for.

    I think you are right. Now if I only new where this part is located I might be able to replace it. It doesn't help that the manufacturer, Franklin, is in chapter 11.

Defrost Thermostats sensor faulty and need replacing. This limiter refrigerator thermostat cuts out when the temperature inside your refrigerator reaches fifty-five degrees Fahrenheit and kicks back in when the internal temperature drops to thirty degrees Fahrenheit, In another words the unit work like a switch, when the sensor sense and reach the temperature setting it cut compressor on and off. When the thermostate sensor unit become faulty, it cant sense or detect the correct temparature by sending the wrong temperature to the control unit even-though the temperature guages read correctly, which your control unit think the temperature is hot or warm and keep the compressor running, it will keep running until the sensor tell it so. I hope that make sense to you. good luck.

Sounds like your thermostat is bad. You probably have to replace it and the sending unit also. Big job! Look for a manual at : http://www.servicemanuals.net

My magic chef 4.3 refridgerator is not cooling properly. I have a lot of food in it and frequently (every few hours) I check it and I have to turn the temperature control off then on for the ccolness and...


When the compressor is working it will be cooling the refrigerator to the desired set temperature,when the desired temperature is reached the compressor will stop, that is quite normal....it will come back on again when the set temperature drops......the more that you open the fridge, the more the compressor has to work as everytime the door is opened the temperature inside the fridge will go up.

LG Model: LWHD1500ER - I would like the unit's compressor to remain on constantly. The temp guage seems to be off and shuts down the compressor. Can I bypass the temp guage to leave th ecompressor...


You can but the unit will have not control over temperature, and you can cause the unit to freeze up or slug the compressor w/ liquid refrigerant causing premature compressor failure. I would recommend replacing the thermostat if it is not holding proper temperature, but if dead set on bypassing it use a volt/ohm meter after unplugging it to find the normally open contacts and wire those wires together taking into consideration that the fan must run constantly with the compressor.

It just stopt cooling (wgersdorf@yahoo.com)


Hello,

Turn the temperature dial to the lowest temperature setting. Wait 24 hours for the wine cooler to reach the desired temperature. Also, turn the wine cooler off and inspect the fan. If the fan if it's running or not.

Lastly, check the compressor.

These are the areas that could make your wine cooler stop cooling; the temperatue settings (Thermostat), then Fan and the compressor.

Check these three areas and let me have a feed back.

Bye for now.

Model number HBLG 12303r how does the energy saver setting work bought this model used.


The energy saver setting will turn the blower fan off when the thermostat reaches the desired room temperature (with the compressor). Other non energy savers only cycle the compressor to regulate the room temp. so their fans will operate continusously using more electricity.

Air conditioner compressor keeps shutting down


This is due to thermal overload,Which can be caused by low oil in the compressor,the fan has stopped running on the unit outside,Dirty coils,or just a worn out compressor.Although this is thermal overload,It has nothing to do with outside temperature,But rather the internal temperature of the compressor itself.

Compressor on Haier hmse03waww mini-frige shuts off after 10-20 minutes and is hot to the touch.


If the temperature in the refrigerator is correct then this is proper function for the compressor. It should run until the desired temperature is reached then shut off. The compressor also gets really warm. If the compressor is shutting off prior to the correct temperarure being reached then you may have a compressor problem. If the compressor is bad and our of warranty, it is time for a new refrigerator. If it is still under a warranty, call for factory service. Good luck, and I hope this helps.
