Where is the condenser in my Kenmore French door bottom freezer, and how to clean


Condensers are usually on the bottom of the unit and you can clean them by blowing out the dust with the exhaust side of a vacuum cleaner. Or an air compressor if you have one.

Some newer refrigerators have the condenser coils on one of the walls so they are inaccessible for cleaning. But since they are sort of sealed off there is really no need to clean since nada gets in there.

Maytag dryer mdc1305aaw


try follow the instruction on original manual or at web site indicated below
http://www.manualslib.com/manual/100392/Maytag-Mdc1305aaw.html?page=14#manual

Important: Always switch off and remove the plug from the electricity supply before cleaning the condenser. To maintain the efficiency of the dryer regularly check that the condenser is clean. To remove the condenser 1. Remove the kickplate (see page 13). 2. Turn the two locking levers anti-clockwise and pull out the condenser. 3. Pull out the condenser unit. 4. Gently remove any dust or lint with a cloth, then wash the unit by holding it under a running tap turning it so that water flows between the plates, to remove any dust or lint. 5. Refit the condenser ensuring it is in the correct way (as indicated by the arrow) and pushed firmly into place. Lock the two levers by turning them clockwise. 6. Refit the kickplate.

RefRegeREtor not cold


Hello Tanya - When was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Contact a professional to move forward accurately from this point.

Display not working


Hello Lan Sutton - Since the unit is now not cooling, when was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator or control board may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Contact a professional to move forward accurately from this point.

The ice cube indicator is blinking


From the manual:

The Control Center monitors refrigerator and

freezer temperatures as well as the ice maker

system. If there is a temperature or ice maker

problem, you'll be alerted by a flashing

SERVICE indicator light. This same SERVICE

light will also flash if the condenser needs

cleaning. Before calling for service, please

check and see if your condenser area needs

cleaning. Refer to Condenser Cleaning,
page 22.

CONDENSER CLEANING

In all Built-In models, the condenser is located

behind the grille. First, remove the grille. Then

using a soft bristle brush, vacuum to remove

dust and lint from the condenser. NOTE: To

avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to

vacuum in the direction of the fins (up and

down). Clean the condenser area every three

to six months.


CAUTION

Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity

off at the control panel. When you

clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid

injury from the sharp condenser fins.

Failure to clean the condenser could

result in temperature loss or mechanical
failure or damage.

How do I open the goodman condensing unit for cleaning


I suggest taking the top screen and possibly the condenser motor out. If you try to take off the cage that surrounds the unit, you may not get it back on right. Best to push the dirt out with a hose from the inside out.

Subzero 532 refridge cooling but freezer won't freeze


Unit has separate compressors and thermostat's. Clean the condenser, if it doesn't improve call for service, as there is a decent chance you will need sealed system work or defrost issue. If you need instructions on cleaning the condenser check subzero.com.also try advanceing the defrost timer as they mostly die in the defrost cycle. Behind the grille there will be a panel with a small hole in it with a screw above and below. Use a flat blde screw driver to turn the gray piece in th small hole clockwise a few clicks. If the freezer comes back on you will need to replace the defrost timer.

Re-located condenser, trying to charge unit in cold weather. How do I do this?


It's probably too late to recommend capturing (bottling) the charge in the condensing unit...... With that said the absolute 100% way to charge any unit is to use the weight method. If you look on the nameplate of the unit it will provide you the amount of refrigerant needed in lbs and ounces, the manufacture instruction manual will give you the additional weight needed for the lenght of the line set. In the event you don't have the ability to weigh the refrigerant accurately you can always wrap the condensing unit with a blanket reduce the condensing capacity of the condenser this will simulate a warmer ambient and allow you to charge the unit. If the unit has a fixed orfice metering device you can use the superheat method, if the unit has a TXV (thermal expansioin valve) you should use the subcooling method. Either of these methods with detailed proceedures can be found on any of the popular search engines. Hope this helps and good luck!
