Compressor and Compressor Fan Not Working


Rotate the dial on the defrost thermostat, a big click is when it goes into defrost, a little more and it should turn the compressor back on. By overload protector, do you mean the one under the compressor cover?

When plugged, it shorts the surge protector and outlets.


I noticed that my refrigerator, kenmore freezer2_bing.gif, and stove were all not on. This has not ever been a problem before, so I unplugged the surge protector and reset the outlet. I then plugged the refrigerator2_bing.gif and the kenmore freezer to the surge protector and I noticed when I plugged the kenmore freezer it just shorted the surge protector. I then just plugged in the refrigerator and oven to the surge protector with no problems. I tried to plug kenmore freezer to other outlet and same result "a short

No it is not the timer. You may have an open overload protector at the compressor. Check across the overload for a reading with an ohm meter. If it reads zero it is good, if not replace it.

Compressor is cycling on the overload protector. If refrigerator is over five years old the warranty may be expired. I which case I never recommend replacing the compressor if the customer is to bear the full expense.

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.

Electrical unit attached to compressor keeps making a spark(clicking sound) Fridge & freezer slowly stopped cooling during the day and is now down to 0 cool.


Overload thermal protector is tripping out. When a mechanical refrigerator is unplugged it should remain unplugged for 5-10 minutes to allow the refrigerant pressure to equalize. If you unplug it and then plug it right back in the overload will open on and off until the pressure in the system balance to the point where the compressor will start.

This protector is a two way protector. It opens on Over current and or over temperature. If a condenser is plugged with dust , hair or what ever the fan which circulates the air for cooling the system will not move enough air to keep the compressor with-in operating temperature range. The thermal protector will open.

S22 freezer not working


Is the compressor hot to the touch? Is there any sound coming from the compressor is you listen for a minute or two? If the compressor is cold to the touch it is getting no power. No power tells you that :
1 the cold control is open or bad.
or 2 the overload protector is open

If you are able, unplug the freezer, disconnect the two wires the attach to the cold control, jumper these wires, plug in the freezer and if the freezer then runs and cools the problem is a bad cold control. If nothing happens, the overload protector is open.
