No cooling at all in my fridge or freezer, both at room temp. Relay kicks on but compressor does not. Tag says "Thermo Protected". Does it just need 134a?

The last thing you need is 134.. the relay that starts comp is probably at fault. the clicking sound or humm is the comp trying to start. ( replace the relay start kit . about $90.00 .ps also clean the condensor and make shure both fans are going .. m m

My GE bottom Freezer Fridge model pfse5njwdss not cooling at all. both fridge and freezer are not cooling, the lights are on and a very low sound exists, but not cooling. As if its not on.


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. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.
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

GE top freezer fridge forming ice on wall of freezer


Hi the thermostat could be the cause of your problem but check the temp of the compressor put your hand on it and it should be about room temp any hotter and this needs replacing also look on the pipes at back where they run on the outside check as much as you can and see if it has any frost on any of these pipes.
As its forming on one side then it might not be thermo but check compressor first and make sure its not running hot ok then get back to us

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Neither refrigerator nor freezer cooling.


sounds like the compressor or relay went out. if the compressor is hot turn off and let cool to room temp. and try it then [a few hours] , if it is not hot then replace the relay on the compressor.

Freezer Quit working


Hi, That clicking noise is the relay/overload trying to start the compressor. Is this under 5 years old?
They have had a lot of problem with these. I might suggest you calling Amana and inquire about the warranty.
If the warranty has expired, you can try to replace the relay kit.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Kenmore side-by-side with thermo switch problem?


Acting like a bad thermostat, One thing to check is make sure compressor isnt overheating. If really hot you could have a relay problem on compressor.
