Unit not running (cooling)

My 75BWC is 10 years old. The unit is getting power because the inside light comes on. However, the refrigerator is not running. No sound, no heat, nothing. I've not a great job of keeping it clean behind the bottom grate. Did I kill it? Would it be the motor or condenser? How could I tell? We have a kenmore wine refrigerator that is running but not cooling below 65 degrees. This has been like this for the past 6 weeks. Am unsure what may be the problem. Any suggestions?

Wine cooler #ULN-75BWC-00 motor seems to have shut off and no longer cooling. Please advise possible issues & parts to be replaced. Unit about 7 yrs old.

the motor could be defective or it could be low o refrigerant causing the pressure switch to not kick on the fan. Could even be wires have come loose from the fan. If the fan does not work it won't cool. however it mould most likely cosy you more to fix if you take it to a shop to have it repaired if you have the tools to test it with I can help you so let me know if you have a test meter volt ohm meter and I can tell you how to test the system.

We also have a 10 year old Kenmore side-by side that has stopped cooling. The compressor continues to run (does not turn off after a few seconds). Worth repairing???

well to be honest its a "no, no" a 10 year old unit is not very good and is costly to run to fix it would cost half the price of a new one, and by now you must have had your money's worth out of it, so its best all round to buy a new one to fix your unit it would need a new compresser a re,gas and maybe a thermostat as well, ,,see what i saying,,,lots of money for an old unit

GE TFF22RC Side-by Side refrigerator burning smell and no cooling

Sounds like the compressor has gone out or at least the electricals on it. You can replace the relay if that is all it is but at 26 years I would seriously consider replacement. The newer units are more energy efficient and the insulation in your unit has degraded with the years.

GE Monogram side by side not cooling

I had the same problem. GE Man said that since the unit had been allowed to warm so much, we needed to empty it, unplug it, and totally leave it alone for 24 hours for any excess water to drain out. Then, we needed to plug it in and let it run with NO ITEMS INSIDE AND NO OPENING OF THE DOORS AT ALL for 48 hours. After that, we started using it again and it was Perfect!! I thought it was a lost cause, so this worked and didn't cost me a dime!!

Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

I have a uline 75bwc and the repair man said the compressor is bad. It's only 7 years old. Should I replace the compressor or is it cheaper to but an new unit?

The compressor is the heart of the unit. As long as the unit is in good shape it would be cheaper to replace the compressor. This unit is a simple unit so all the parts hold up pretty good.

U-Line 75BWC

if 10 years old then probably has a phial type thermostat. this may have 2 or 3 wires to it plus earth. connect all the wires together (but not earth) and if it is a stat problem, the compressor will start

Two year old Maytag Fridge not cooling

pull the power plug for 15 minutes, then plug back in...same problem? tried adjusting temperature control knob (thermostat)? if yes to both questions, freon has escaped out of loop or faulty thermostat. Attempt force start of compressor with jumper clips: pull the power plug then find the two wires into motor and apply 120 VAC from jumper clips. If it spins, then faulty thermostat.
