Condensor freezing up

We had to turn off the power at our house.  We switched it right back on and the refridgerator condensor froze up and it broke, needing to be replaced. $$$$$$$ We've got to do some electrical work next week and I'm afraid to turn of the power because it might happen again?  Is there a procedure  for turning off the power as to avoid damaging the fridge? Thanks for your input

    if at al your SET is a very old one use a power stablizer..

    but i dont think there is anything to do with the freezing of condenser and power OFF and ON.. its some malfunction inside the machine.

    so dont worry. trust me my friend.

hi there

what you want to do is manually sever the line of the condenser going to the main line so that you wont have to turn the whole house down. you may want also to have an electrician do that for you..safety reasons...

When thats done, you can either have the fridge serviced because you have to replace the broken part and have it also cleaned.

hope this helps

GE Side By Side refrigerator evaporator freezing up


There is a pc board that senses how long the condensor motor has been running and when it gets to a certain amount of time it turns off the refridgerator condensor and turns on the heater coil that melts any ice formed on the condensor coils untill a temperature sensor says enough then it allows the condensor motor to run again. The problem is definitely in this board which is a common problem with Whirlpool and related brands. This board is about 50 to 75 dollars and can be easily replaced.

Whirlpool side by side refridgerator, 14 years old, nothing works. By passed controls-compressor fine, condensor fan works-no power to defrost timer, lights don't work. Power cord has continuity.


go to the molex plug at the rear of the unit on the right side where all the wires connect check the white wire common wire
loose common wire connection will not give you power to the nutral side for the freezer light defrost timer defrost heater fresh food control fresh food light theres a way to get it back if the plug is not the issue let me know 276-523-4434
