Compressor is HOT, coil is not warm


Check to see if the fan is running down in the back by the compressor, if it isn't put a small fan back there blowing on the compressor, also make sure the compressor is running you can unplug it and block the fan by the compressor wait a few minutes and plug it back in so you can hear the compressor to see if it is running. if it hums and then clicks you probably have a bad relay and overload assy.

7 year old refridgerator not getting cold enough. Thawing in freezer. Should the condenser be hot/warm to the touch? Is there a re-set?


Hello,

The condersor coil will be very warm to hot..not so much so it will burn you, yet very warm..the things that will make it very overly warm is if its clogged with dust or the condenser fan motor isnt running all the time the compressor is on. But it will normally be warm all the time the compressor is running..that heat is whats being removed from inside (the way refrigs. work is they remove the heat so when the heat is gone only cold is left)

My side side frige is warm to the touch in the middle


Getting warm around the door is OK but getting hot around door indicates a restriction of the airflow below your refrigerator. The compressor produces hot Freon that is pumped out the discharge side of compressor. On many refrigerators the gas goes to the yoder Condenser Loop first and then cooled by the condenser fan motor before going to the freezer section as a liquid.

Anything restricting that airflow will cause the yoder loop to get hotter. Example a defective condenser fan, dusty conditions below refrigerator or room temperatures way above normal for a kitchen or room inside your home. Insure fan stays on when compressor runs because a defective condenser fan does not always stop when defective. Most refrigerators work best with room temperatures in mid 70's to middle 80's. Making sure that airflow is good, fan's stay on with compressor and room temperatures stay in the normal range is important to keep those temperatures lower in the yoder loop. If helpful please rate this solution, Thanks Sea Breeze

My fridge compartment and freezer compartment is warm. i dont know alot about fridges, so please dont be too technical with me. and its a very old model, 106.769830 E92812566


If both compartments are warm, this means that the compressor is either not running or is running and not circulating the refrigerant. We need to know if the compressor is running. Its the black can looking thing behind the refrigerator at the bottom with copper tubes going to it. If it feels cool to the touch it is not running. If it is warm or hot, it is running and not pumping. If its not running it may be a problem with the thermostat, the defrost timer or the compressor itself. If it is running and hot but the fridge isn't cooling, it may have a leak or a bad compressor or relay.

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

The dividing wall between the freezer compartment and refrigerator compartmant is very hot to the touch , use to be warm now almost to hot to touch. mod. #106.56539400


the condensor fan by the compressor is not running. this fan cools the compressor and condensor coils. if it does not run then the mullion (center between frzr and refrigerator side) gets very hot

Freezer not working


The compressor does run warm but not hot, if the freezer is not cooling then the comp is faulty, approach local repair agent for cost. Regards The Advisor Smeg Agent
