First of all check your freezer for excessive frost on the back panel. If you have excessive frost then your evaporator is probably ice up which means one or more of a few problems. They are possibly:

1. First a possible defrost timer problem. To check you will find the timer either at the bottom in front behind the grill (sometimes called the kick panel) or in back behind the back cover. When you find it turn the small dial clockwise until you hear it click. When it click you should hear a hissing sound coming from your freezer which is the heater coming on (you may want to remove the evap. cover in back of the freezer compartment so you can hear it better you will have to have it off to perform the other checks anyhow). If the heater comes on the timer needs to be replaced. If it's okay advance the timer until (if it is running) the evap. fan comes back on.

2. Check and make sure your evap. fan is running. It is the fan above the evap. that you see when you remove the panel. If it is running it's probably okay. If not check for 125V if it is not running and you have the needed voltage replace it. If it is running then check the heater and make sure you have continuity through it. You should get a reading when you register across the outer leads. (you will need to disconnect the heater to check as well as the evap. thermo.) If it shows no reading replace it.

3. Next check the defrost thermo. If your freezer is not frosted up you won't get a reading through it. If it is and you don't get a reading then replace it.

Hopefully this will help.
Good Luck!
God Bless

Why is the fridge and freezer not cold enough


If the fan isn't running neither section will be cold enough. There may be something jammed against the fan blade or the motor could be defective.

2004 mazda mpv engine racing and cooling fan not working


coolant temp sensor tells the computer how hot or cold the engine is so it can regulate the idle and fuel mixture, when it fails there usually is no cooling fan and you will have trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

Blower won't run


usually a "humming motor" indicates either a bad capacitor or a defective motor. With the power off try to spin the blower wheel...it should spin freely. If it is tight or wont spin and there are no obstructions stopping it (like an air filter sucked into blower or other debris) then the motor most likely is seized. If the blower wheel spins free then you may have a bad capacitor. Keep in mind, just because the blower spins easy doesn't mean the motor is good. I have had motors that are defective that dont seize up but most of the time the blower wheel will not spin free if the motor fails.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin


How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

I have a Fimco 2100 model sprayer that keeps blowing the fuse. Wiring is all ok. Pump doesn't even attempt to turn on. Fuse blows almost 1 second after pump switch is turned on. Pressure gauge never...


The breaker is too small, the cord is too small, the starter motor on that thing draws 18 amps. It will trip any 15 amp breaker and any 20 amp breaker with something else running, any cord will drop the amp below the starter winding min. make sure nothing is running, separate circuit if you can find one, no extension cord, and a 20 amp breaker in the fuse box. if that is not the problem , then something is shorting out when you hit the switch. Check the wiring on the pump and make sure all is secure, no loose wires, no sparks. My compressor won't run on any old plug, has to be 20 amp, has to be without a cord or with a heavy cord, and has to be hot out, if it is cold, forget it!. We have to keep the compressors in a heated room so they will run in the winter. Hope this helps.

Refrigerator is not getting cold although the freezer appears to be working fine


can you hear the evaporator fan motor running in the freezer? this fan motor pushes the cold air from the freezer to the food section to keep it cold. you may have to replace the evap. fan motor. also, check for any kind of ice build up around the evap fan motor.
