Take off the overload and relay(start device),it just slides onto the compressor,when you have it off shake it,if you hear pieces banging around in it that's the easiest way to test it.next time send the model number,i could have looked up the part for you but i'd change the start device

I have a Frigidaire freezer LFFU1424DW not freezing. Came home to melting ice and thawed food. I heard clicking noise like a fan but goes off after a few seconds. Help please.


first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.

Check if fan in freezer is running as well as fan by the compressor and the compressor itself. Check for any frost buildup on evaporator cover in freezer.

FREEZER NOT FREEZING AND F RIDGE FEELING WARM


Before you throw out this refrigerator, try a few simple tests.

First, open the freezer while the compressor is running and listen for the fan running. If it is not, this could be your problem. Replacement fans can be ordered from on-line parts stores, a local appliance repair shop, even ebay.

Second, try turning off the refrigerator and letting the coils in the freezer thaw completely. Of course, move your food to a safe place for a few hours while you thaw the freezer. If you really get ambitious, remove the rear panel from the freezer and look to see if the coils are frozen. If they are, thaw them and dry the freezer compartment completely. Reassemble the freezer and restart the refrigerator.

If the problem reoccurs, you may have a problem with your defrosting circuit.

My Amana refrigerator with bottom freezer thaws intermittently, every 5 days or so. When it thaws there is a buzzing sound from the fridge that lasts a couple of seconds and recurs every 30-60 seconds....


The techs are correct. The sound you hear is the compressor trying to start.
Most appliance parts companies sell what is called a
start kit or hard start kit. I personally use the "ic13".
It has given me the best results but it's a **** shoot.
If you feel like gambling, try it. As well,
It is very important that you run the machine with the back cover in place. It ducts the air to the condenser . Very important. Make sure the condensor coils are clean, as well.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

GIBSON DEEP FREEZE IS RUNNING BUT EVERYTHING IS THAWING OUT


Might try unplugging for a few hours and then plug it back in. There is a possibility that it slugged the compressor and there is a restriction in the line. Sometimes when the compressor fails to stop running in cold air the liquid gets back to the compressor. It can cause a bit of gunk to be picked up out of the oil and carried to the expansion line and plug up the line. Maybe turning it off will let the plug fall free and not replug the line. Worth a try anyway.....

Freezer compartment is thawing


Sounds like the compressor seized. The buzzing you hear is the compressor trying to kick on.

I noticed that happens a lot with air conditioners if power is interrupted when the compressor is running.

Did you try unplugging it for 20-30 minutes?

Sometimes letting it sit unpowered relieves the pressure that was built up in the compressor, making it easier for it to start.

Jenn Aire side by side - freezer and fridge not working


Yes the compressor could be stuck but it's also possible the PTC could have failed - each will show the same symptoms. If you're a tech you can check the compressor or you can just replace the PTC also known as "relay". Part # 12002784 should run somewhere around $60.
