Get to the compressor and feel its temperature. If it is cold, then the thermostat will be faulty. Not impossible, but the clixon and run relay inside the electrical box could also be faulty. One needs a digital tester to check both.

Sounds like your control switch is going bad. Good thing you have the quick freeze button. You may want to go ahead and replace it. The whole thing will go out soon. This is something you can replace yourself.

Turn it round and check the electrics for the compressor are dry. You probably flooded them when defrosting and may have shorted something. If it still won't start with everything dried out, call a fridge technician

I have a deep freezer,the light is on but doesn't freeze. It's only 2 yrs old what could be the problem?I unpluged it and waited 10 mins pluged back in and nothing the red light stayed on but...


Well a freezer is easy to repair. The circuit goes from one side of the power cord to the cold control and down to the compressor then out to the other side of the power cord. Id the control or compressor relay is open then she won't freeze. All the parts to it are listed HERE.
From the list I see an overload for the compressor. If that one is open it won't freeze. Bypass the temp control wires to see if she runs.

Freezer won't get below 30 degrees at the highest setting, food won't freeze.


Possible that the gas pressure is down to low gas or leak on the system. Also it can be due to faulty thermostat, faulty compressor if the compressor is working all the time and reaching the set temperature. Also if the compressor is not cutting off this must be a suspect.

I use this on a regular basis and have had no issues. I believe it will work. If I had some numbers from the compressor plus a brand name such as Copeland, Tecumsah, embraco, etc., I may be able to tell you more about the compressor HP.

My beverage air refrigator ri18 compressor turns on sounds like it works but doesnt get cold


1) Check the compressor working or not.. Air cooling type condenser fan may be not working properly.
2) Compressor working but not properly. Last side of condenser (Filter) Light Heat or not.
3) Inside Cooling area do not get cooling. may be gas leakage problem.
4) My opinion check Gas pressure Low and high side.

High Temp light will not go off even though the freezer seems to be working. Compressor does not stop running


What makes a compressor to run constant is the thermostat. Bang on it to see if it will turn off. turn the setting to 1. if it still wont shut off replace cold control (aka thermostat)
worry about the light later hope this was helpful

Lights are on but compressor won't work. Less than 2 years old.No display on temp control.


http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back onand listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries tostart.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overloadrelay.

If the relay is ok the problem is the compressor which normally has a five year warranty.
