Booster on compressor not condesor, if you needed a "boost" to run compressor sounds like you got bad compressor.

Check for two things. Look under the refrigerator and make sure the compressor fan is turning.

Second, check inside the freezer for proper operation of the fan that moves cool air throughout the freezer and refrigerator. If this fan is working, you can probably hear it. It should be behind an access plate in the freezer (near the top). Remove the plate and look at the fan. If it's not turning, you will have to replace the fan motor.

Yes, there is a fan that distributes cold air throughout the freezer and to the refrigerator side. The fan is usually located behind an access plate near the bottom of the freezer side. You should be able to hear it if it's running. If you don't hear it, remove the access panel and look at it. If it's not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor.

Fan running but neither refrig or freezer is getting cold.


Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze

Fridge on the Fritz


sounds as if perhaps theres a fan in the freezer, copartment that is not spinning, circulating the cold air around, or if that fan is spinning you have adefost issue,not "self defrosting so the ice is building up preventing proper circulation

Burnt smell inside freezer.


Generally speaking it is the refrigerator control that controls the compressor operation. Refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. When the refrigerator gets down to its designed temperature it shuts off the compressor. The freezer control determines how much air is allowed to flow into the refrigerator section and there-by controls the freezer temperature.

To me it sounds like the thremostatic controle switch has gone bad, if the fan works seperately from the system, than the switch may be bad.
