Freezer stopped after power outage


If the sides are hot, look at the defrost timer. Sounds like it has stopped running with the defrost elements on. The compressor has a safety switch on it that opens either if the compressor gets too hot or if it pulls too much current when starting. If your power flickered a lot before coming back on, that triggered the safety switch. Now that it's running normally, I wouldn't worry. The defrost timer is your problem now.

check the left side condenser coils, make sure they're clean. there might be low air flow, and that'll cause the compressor to overheat and shut off. leave at least 6 inches of space on both sides of the machine for it to breathe. also if the ambient temp is too hot, same thing.

Chest Freezer not wokring


Sounds more like a neutral fault if you have power there but no lights are working. Check each wire from the plug to the junction in the cabinet, then check to the lights and thermostat.
Unless you have a capacitance tester, you need to substitute a good capacitor in line to see if the compressor starts. If it was the capacitor at fault, the compressor would be trying to start every 5 mins or so and would be hot to the touch.

I have a light switch in my apartment that controls both the light in the kitchen and power to both sockets of a dual outlet. How do I adjust the wiring so that the outlet is always powered? The wiring...


This is not good wiring option. It is not good to have light and outlet on the same switch without different fuse. I suggest to insert another little switch on light connection. Than you can have control of both. Or you must find main phase (hot wire) inside switch box. This will be always on for tester when you try different switch position. When you find this main (hot) wire, you disconnect one of another two wire (after you disconnect power), than give power on and test light and socket (one of them will not work). If this is outlet, you must connect this wire to main (hot) one. Don't work when power on. Just test it with tester, and than disconnect when you change position of wire.
Good luck and be careful!

I'm wanting to install a combination outlet/switch device. Both will work off the same circuit but be independent of each other. I want the light to work from the switch, with the outlet constantly hot. ...


How many sets of wires are coming into the box?
If the box is in the middle of the circuit you will have a power-source black & white wire coming in and a power-source black & white wire going out. And in this case for the switch - there must be a black and a white wire going to a light.

Typically with a switch/outlet combination all the white wires will splice together with a white pig-tail wire to feed the neutral side of the device. The two black wires from the power-source will splice together with a black pig-tail and feed the hot-side of the device. The black wire going to the light will go on one side of the switch.

Looking at outlet/switch device from the front the large slot side of the outlet will be the neutral side and the smaller outlet slot will be the hot side. The neutral side screws will be steel colored and the hot side screws will be brass colored. The white wires will go to the neutral side steel colored screws, and the black wires will go on the hot side brass colored screws on the outlet.

The black wire comig into the box from the light is called a switchleg and goes to a brass screw on one side of the switch. The brass screw on the otherside of the switch will be for the black wire coming from the power-source.

Hope this helps - and please:

Gold Whirlpool 25.3 cu.ft refrigerator stop working


if the compressor is very hot then it can be possible that the compressor is getting faulty,but also other possibility can be the compressor relay.if the relay beside the compressor is got faulty then the compressor gets over heated.so first unplug the unit from main power outlet and then remove the relay and check it with continuity to confirm the fault.is it relay or compressor.

Kenmore chest freezer


check light inside .on? you got power. check compressor in back on? if no then you probably have a bad stat. open door and look inside for numbered dial. turn max hot to max cold back and forth. if compressor comes on you need a new stat probably. remember only a stat a compressor on these units. if its hot stat should send power to compressor. if power is arriving at compressor and not running then start relay and or start cap are probably bad. but if compressor is running and still no cool then your probably out of freon. unfortunitly these boxes are made with steel tubing in the cabinets. when you move them lots of times the tubing rusts and ruptures. then your all done. new freezer time. they are sealed to the point there are not even a place to apply gages to check charge. you can gently remove power and then stat and jump thermomstat to take it out of equation and if compressor runs you need a new stat. constant power comes in one side of the stat and when the sensing tube is heated it closes the points to the outlet side and puts power to the compressor. there may also be a ground wire usually green be sure to observe which two are power in and power out. usually side by side. good luck

Amana side by side refrigerator


If the unit is on a ground fault outlet move it to a different outlet or change that one out. A refrigerator or freezer is not reccommended to be on a GFI curcuit. Your hot compressor start can be close to 20 amps. That will trip any GFI it would be hooked up to.
