I have a Samsung rs21!!! it wont cool in either compartment. when I plug it in the compressor fan does a quarter turn then stops. the compressor runs for about 30 seconds then cuts out? any ideas plea


most likely the start relay on the compressor that changes from start windings to run windings. the compressor will run for about 30 seconds on start windings then click out on internal thermal overload.
this can be confirmed by turning it on and letting it do the 30 second run then when it stops just wait and see if it cuts in and tries to run again (usually takes about 5 min) the second time it cuts in it wil most likely not run for as long (usually about 10 seconds). if this is what it does get a new compressor start/run relay.
as for the fan flick it with your finger and see if it spins freely.

My Kenmore side by side model 106.53532300 is too warm. The compressor comes on for ten seconds then shuts off.


Your compressor needs to be serviced by a service tech. Call Kemore for an appointment.

My freezer is not working properly with clicking sound.


The clicking sound is probably the compressor relay trying to start the compressor. When the lights dim, the compressor is trying to start and hence, pulling power from the rest of the unit. If the compressor has a start capacitor, that could possibly be the problem. If not, the compressor itself should be replaced.

The evaporator (inside) coil can ice up for the following (typical) reasons. Check the ones that you can and hire a professional refrigeration technician if you can't find the problem yourself.

1. Thermostat isn't shutting off. (Does the compressor run continuously? Can you turn the compressor off while it is running by turning the freezer temp control down (but not off)?

2. Internal fan (evaporator fan) is not blowing air. Possible causes: fan blades hitting something; debris blocking air flow; fan motor bad; no power to fan.

3. Low refrigerant (freon) charge. Need a technician for this one.

You can get thermostat or fan motor at a local appliance parts store. Try googling "appliance parts <yourzipcodey>"

If this was helpful, please select YES to the first two RATINGS questions. Good Luck!

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

My coleman mah 3 roof top will not blowon fan side


Sounds like you have either a bad fan motor or a bad fan motor capacitor. When you turn the unit on with the fan not working, the compressor (the humming noise) runs and gets real hot real quick resulting in the compressor cutting off ( the nothing after) on it's inside high temp switch. This is what the compressor is designed to do so that when this happens, it does not burn the compressor out. Replace you fan capacitor, give the compressor an hour to cool, then try it. In most cases and if I'm correct, the unit will run just like you want it to. Good luck.
