It sounds like you may have bad starting components on your compressor. I would check your condenser fan motor for 120v. Or try to put a small box fan behind the ref blowing directly on the compressor to aid in cooling it. If the compressor kicks in then you know the problem is with your condenser fan motor and not your compressor. If the start components are bad you will usually hear a clicking noise from the compressor every 10-15 mins or so.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Why isnt my frigidaire side by side refrigerator cooling and compressor is working?

Freezer will not freeze water in bottles and seals between freezer door and fridge are very hot to touch


That means that heat from the compressor is being transferred to the rest of thet machine like a heatsink. The reason why is either the condensor fan motor is not running which most likely the reason, or the condensor coils are severely dirty. You'll need to pull the machine out from the wall, leaving it plugged in and remove the lower plate at the bottom. Locate the fan, usually more toward the right hand side if your behind it, and if the compressor is runnning then the fan should be running. Period. The fan draws air across the compressor and blows it throught the condensor coils which will located right next to the fan, cooling them down.

Our 10 year fridg seems to get very hot on the side...wondering what would cause this Model et18pkxaw00


The condensor coils run along the inner sides of the fridge . The heat you feel , is the heat being pulled out of the freezer which is the purpose of "freon" (to attract heat) . A freezer doesn't get cold , "freon" pulls the heat out , which is then cooled by the condensor fan ( fan which cools the compressor and coils ) . The more heat you feel , the colder the fridge should get ( to an extent ) . Also make sure the compressor fan is working .

My fridge is not colling and compressor geting heat.


If this is a SxS , the overload/relay which plugs onto the compressor is probably bad if the compressor clicks off or does not run at all ,OR , the fan which cools the compressor (condensor fan ) is not working (bad motor ) , also make sure the coils are clean at the bottom in the front (condensor coils ) .

Upright freezer quit cooling, interior fan runs, compressor runs


The coils are most certainly there probably located under your unit. Clean them thoroughly. Look under and to the very top of that space.

need to check to see if your condensor fan is running. this fan is located by the compressor. it will run at the same time the compressor is running. this fan keeps the condensor coils cooled off. if its not running then the unit tries to cool down through the cabinet

Kenmore Refrgierator is not cooling enough


Is the frost on the entire surface of the evaporator or just a portion. If it is only frosting on a portion there is a possibility your system has developed a leak and has lost some of the charge. Or your compressor has lost its ability to pump the gas. A bad condenser fan motor overtaxes the compressor and can cause premature failure. If it is a bad compressor it may be time to replace the refrigerator. Replacing the compressor is an expensive job and the warranty is only one year on a replaced compressor.

KENMORE TRIO 2004 59675523400 REEFER/FREEZER NOT COOLING


It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.

Refrigerator cools, but no freezer fan & no condensor fan running


Check the back of you fridge and make sure the coils are clean. If you have access to a small air compressor, blow everything out and make sure the motor are is clean. The build up of dirt on the coils will not let the heat escape during the cooling process.
