Re: need help

If you mean the breaker trips it probably is drawing locked rotor amps on compressor. Turn thermostat all the way to the left to turn it off. Restore power to unit. If fans inside stay on, that means the power on still on. Then turn thermostat to the rite to turn it back on. If the power fails again after turning thermostat back on the compressor is probably bad. :(

True GDM-10 Drink Cooler from 1997...

A good test method is buy a rco-410 hard start relay. Once you have it, cut an old plug off something and leaving the plug intact, splice the two wires at the cut end with the two wires on thet really that don't have metal ends. Once that is done securly, unplug the fridgem take the really off the compressor and hook up the home made compressor tester. Once plugged in if the compressor is good it will come on, it it doesn't it's bad. This works becuase you remove any variables that are present with the machine hooked up normal.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Download this manual and go to page 36 & 37 for testing steps and wiring diagram. NOTE the voltages will be 115V DC and ONE voltage that is 115V AC the freezer door switch must be taped in the closed position to get any power.

Pin 1 = 115VDC
Pin 2 = 115VDC
Pin 3 = 115 V AC / L1
Pin 4 not used
Pin 5 = Neutral
Pin 6 = ( Neg.) 115VDC
Pin 7 = (Pos.) 115DC

Pins and wire colors listed on page 37

I have a bottom freezer kenmore refrigerator model 596.72253200 and its making a grinding sound coming from the freezer. i found out that when the light its off on the freezer its when the noise starts

The noise your hearing is the evaporator fan. This is a sign of an automatig defrosting problem. Here is what you can do to prove that it is NOT an evaporator problem and most likely an automatic defrosting problem:


1 Empty the freezer contents
2. Unplug the refrigerator
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for about 2 hours.
(This will make a dripping water mess so be ready with the rags and the mop.)
4. After 2 hours wipe up the last bit of water mess.
5. Plug in the Freezer
6. Load freezer contents.
7. Listen for grinding noise.

My bet is the grinding noise is gone. However if you still hear it the evaporator fan motor has bad bearings in it.

The evaporator fan motor can be found here: (Item 18)

If the noise is gone keep an eye on the unit after 2 days because if there is an automatic defrosting problem the noise WILL repeat.

The defrost control is item 13 this link: (Backordered)

Part number is: 12566102

I did find it in stock here:

There can be other reasons for not defrosting properly but the control is the most common failure.

True Refrigeration GDM-26 Compressor problem?

More than likely you need a new compressor. It sounds like it's trying to start and then trips on it's "Klixon" overload. Call a commercial refer guy (not somebodys brother in law that works on A/C, it's NOT the same!)

turn thermostat all the way to the left to turn it off. restore power and see if it stays on and inside fan is running. Then turn thermostat to rite to turn on compressor. If the power trips when turning thermostat back on, the compressor may be bad. :(
