They all have compressers or some way to pressurize the gas, this can also be done wioth a gas flame like in motorhomes, cooling is preformed by compressing the refridgerent and then decompressing it through a metered hole or valve in the high pressure line, this change in state from high pressure to low pressure makes the gas very cold.

Without more details as to how old it is and what kind of condition it is in, I would recommend you have it looked at by a refrigeration professional.

When a fridge is no longer cooling, the main culprits are clogs caused by frozen sections of the air circulation path, refrigerant leaks and faulty compressors. A professional technician can diagnose both. If the compressor is bad, refrigerant is not changing phases (which causes the cooling to occur). If there is a leak, there is not enough refrigerant to compress and the fridge will never cool.

Sometimes the fan is faulty, so the cold air will not circulate into the fridge.

Since your fridge has been sitting, you likely do not have any clogs caused by freezing. If your freezer side works but not the fridge, you either have dual compressors (and the fridge compressor is bad) or you have blockage in the air circulation path. There is also a very slim chance that the light inside your fridge is remaining on and generating heat.

Need info for a kenmore side by side refrigerator model#59652673202 it it not cooling nor freeszing ; the light works and the fan works but not cooling any side please help me


Good day,
With that amount of info it would be hard to try to pinpoint it. Here's a list of items that can cause a refrigerator to not cool.

Items that will cause a refrigerator not to cool.....
1. Defective thermostat
2. Defective freezer fan motor
3. Defective defrost timer
4. Defective defrost thermostat
5. Defective defrost main heater.
6. Defective condenser fan motor
6. Defective compressor overload protector
7. Defective compressor start relay
8. Defective compressor start/run capacitor (some models only)
9. Defective compressor
10. Restriction in refrigeration sealed system
11. Loss of refrigerant (leak)
12. Excessively dirty condenser
13. Broken wires, bad wire harness connectors, ect.
14. Defective fan motor switch (some models only)

As you can see it could be one of many,many items. If your handy with a meter you might want to start at the bottom back of the machine where the compressor is located.
Sounds as if it is not running, or running without refrigerant in the system.
Also, if it has a cooling fan motor in that area, make sure it runs, since all fan motors are wired to run at the same time.

Compressor comes on for a few minutes then relays start clicking and compressor shuts off. refrigerator not cooling.


And it wont get cool as long as your compressor keeps failing to start. You will need to have this tested by a professional to at least find out if its the compressor itself, or the starting kit needed to start the compressor has failed.
Without proper test equipment, you wont be able to find out yourself if its one or the other, but a house call is a small price to pay to know for sure.

If you are talking about the freezer fan motor, it should be running if the compressor is running.
if the compressor runs without the fan running the compressor will overheat and become damaged.
The mullion heater in the door divider is not affected by the compressor.

Refrigerator Compressor hot to touch & fridge/freezer not cooling


you need to do an amp draw with your meter,clamp the run wire on the compressor,you should get 2-5 amp reading,any higher means the compressor is going bad,also should be a locked rotor amp(LRA) reading on comp.-mike

Compressor hums and shuts off


This sounds very much like a compressor failure. unplug the refrigerator and check the condenser for cleanliness. After cleaning the condenser and allowing the compressor to cool, plug it back in and listen for the same sounds. If the compressor was overheated it should restart after it cools. If it does not restart the compressor could be seized. Check the compressor warranty against the age of the refrigerator.

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
