    Compressor is not working on a GE Side by Side - GSH25KG. White fan runs. No clicking sound. Removed back panel and restarted - compressor never even tried to get going. Did a full overnight defrost unplugged, so it is all room temperature. Not a bit of cold coming out.

Samsung RF2178CBPX99. When do internal cooling fans cycle? Frenchdoor model. We have just reinstalled this unit. We dont hear internal or condensor fans running


When the compressor is running at least the freezer fan should be on and if not also the evaporator fan in the fresh food section should be running when it calls for cold air but basically anytime the compressor runs the fans should be running all of .them. a lot of times when there's a problem with the start relay and run capacitor on the compressor d external and internal fans will not come on what you need to do is find out if the compressor is getting hot and not running

Fan not spinning


If the fan on the backside is not spinning it could be a bad fan-motor. When the fan runs the compressor should run as well. If the compressor is not running the fan should not be running either, so you should unplug it for about an hour, then plug it back in and see if the compressor unit starts up. If it doesn't, it is probably something wrong in the control circuit for the compressor. It could be the thermostat (check that it is set correctly). If the compressor starts up but the fan does not run, it is most likely a bad fan motor or bad wire leading to the fan motor.

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.


Jason,
MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

When I woke up this morning, the fan on my Amana SCD23VW was running but the compressor was not. I thought it might be in a defrost cycle, but 30 minutes later it was still doing the same thing, and the...


Hello,

If the fan is running its not in the defrost the fan doesnt run then.
the things that could be the problem are;
the compressor fan is bad so compressor over heats and shuts off
the relay on the compressor is burnt so the compressor wont start
the compressor is bad

i would suspect the relay first..the fan by the compressor secondly and finally last the compressor ..its the least likely thing to go bad

I have a kegerator. It's not functioning. When plugged in no clicking no sound nothing. Wondering if it's the overload switch or relay.


http://www.haieramerica.com/en/asset/product/1ffd77cfa0
This site has your product manual for your dispenser but it is very vague on trouble shooting the cooling system.
In general, the compressor is controlled by a thermostat that is usually located in the conditioned space. It cycles the compressor on and off based on the sensed temperature and the setting that it is adjusted to.
So, let's talk in general refrigeration terms. Where the compressor is located, is there a fan? If so, is it running? That fan is usually the condenser fan and is wired to come on anytime the compressor is supposed to be running. If the fan is running and the compressor is not, then there is an issue with the compressor. If the fan is not running and the compressor is not running, then there is an issue with either power or the thermostat. If the compressor is running and the fan is not, then there is an issue with the fan.
This is a good starting point. Let me know if I can be of further help.

Uline combo unit. Condensor fan will not run and


You just answered your question. If no fan is running then the compressor will overheat and the compressor goes off on overload. Do you have the evaporator fan running? If yes then replace the condensor fan. Both fans will run at the same time. If the evap fan is not running then the unit must be in defrost. Since its a hotgas defrost the compressor will run.
Hope this helps

If you are talking about the freezer fan motor, it should be running if the compressor is running.
if the compressor runs without the fan running the compressor will overheat and become damaged.
The mullion heater in the door divider is not affected by the compressor.

Fan running but compressor is not


which fan is running? evaporator fan or condenser fan?

if the condenser fan is running and the compressor is not, try to feel the compressor if it is VERY hot,
( use caution please)

if it is very hot, unplug the unit, put some wet rags on top of the compressor and let it cool for a while.

after 4 hours, try it again, plug it back and observe the compressor if it would run,

let me know what happen,

tnx 4 using fixya,

Fan / Compressor runs constantly


Condenser fans (the fan next to the compressor) do run all of the time. That is normal.
