Compressor / Fan not coming on

If I plug the compressor / fan power cord to an electric strip, it comes on and cools great. But it will not come on in the normal wiring harness which includes the Thermostat and the Defrost Timer. How can I test the Thermostat to see if it is working properly?
I replaced it about 2 months ago and it has been working fine, but now it seems like it might be out again ....

It should be easy to replace. However, Condenser fans are "usually" very robust fans. It should come on with the compressor unless the environment is below freezing (but not likely a feature). I would double check all electrical connections to and from compressor and Condensor fan. the outside bottom fan near the compressor. If it continues you may jeopardize the compressor. It is not made to run without the condenser cooling fan.

Duo therm ac trips breaker


When compressor for cool tries to kick in, or even when fan only used?
Try it on fan only, not cool, then try cool and if you hear it sort of "moan" then breaker trips, that's compressor trying to kick in. Make sure you have sufficient power coming in to trailer as well, without long extension cord. Get back to me, then I can tell you which way to go from there.

Black strip on front of refrigerator is red hot


Hello, If you remove the rear panel on the back of the machine it will give you access to the compressor as well as the compressor fan motor as well. The black strip in the front of your refrigerator is getting hot due to the compressor fan motor not working. First thing that you should do is unplug the refrigerator until the compressor cools. After the compressor cools then you can diagnose the fan not working. Note in some instances where a family did not have another place to store there food items until the compressor fan motor was replaced I have left the back panel off and used a box fan to blow air onto the compressor continuosly. This does help to cool the compressor and keeps the tempretures near to where they should be. If you do notice that black strip heating up again afterwards you would have no choice other than unplugging the machine. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks Rick

How To Test the Compressor Relay The compressor relay's purpose is to start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the refrigerator the relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.

Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.
Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay , overload protector and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor.


Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.


Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
There are two types of relays you may encounter, wire coil and solid state. If the relay has an exposed wound wire coil it can be tested for continuity. Otherwise, the relay is of solid state design and requires specialized equipment for testing.

My True beer cool stopped cooling last night what should I do ?


That is a broad question. Lets do a checklist. When you plug the unit in the compressor behind the grill on the front should come on and the fan in front of the compressor should come on. The radiator in the compressor compartment needs to be clean from all dust and grease. Many times this is overlooked and can cause real problems by letting the compressor overheat. Now look inside and find the fan cover. It hangs from the inside top of the cooler. It should also be running. If either fan is not running the unit will not cool. Sometimes there is an obstruction, such as someone pushing a six pack up against the fan cover and pushing it into the fan. The fan down by the compressor is sometimes blocked by the cardboard shroud that is built around the fan. Also in a few cases rodents have gotten caught in that fan. If everything is running, you will have to look deeper into the compressor compartment. There is a screw in the front of the radiator that hold the compressor unit in the cooler. Unplug the unit from the wall. Remove that screw and slowly and carefully pull the compressor unit towards the front of the beer box. It will slide almost all the way out. You will see a coil of copper tubing at the back of the compressor that allows enough slack in the lines to slide this unit out. When you push this unit back in it helps to have someone behind the cooler to pull back on that coil as you push the unit back into the machine so it does not get crimped. With the compressor unit pulled out, plug it back in at the wall. If your compressor is running and you have proper amount of refrigerant, the small copper tube from the compressor to the radiator will get very hot, enough to burn your finger, after two or three minutes. After 10 minutes the larger copper line that is usually enclosed in a rubber sheathing should get cold. One way to know if you have a burned out compressor is to listen to the compressor and fans when you first plug into the power outlet. A bad compressor will usually try to start for 2 or 3 seconds and then click out. While it is trying to start the fan will slow down because the compressor is pulling way too many amps and is pulling power away from the fan until it clicks out again. If you can hear the compressor come on and run but it makes no heat to the radiator, you probably have a refrigerant leak. Your freon is gone or almost gone. If it was a slow leak you would usually notice that the cooler does not seem to cool like it once did. If it was working good and suddenly stopped cooling, the most likely problem is a bad compressor. Changing a compressor is usually beyond the average do it yourselfer because it requires welding the unit in place and gauges and a supply of refrigerant which is almost impossible to get without a liscense. Let me know what you find out.

The air does not come on at all but the fan will work.


mcdevito75 Here, You may need a charge of freon, turn the a/c unit off completely and remove plug from wall for about 5 minutes, then plug back into wall, now just put the fan on for 5 minutes, now the cool control, tiur that slowly to it"s coolest point and ss if compressor comes on, if so back off the cool control slowly just until the compressor goes off, if compressor doesn"t come on, contact a local a/c repair shop in your area. They come to the house.

Very low fan speed and no cooling is it the start up capasitor


MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING A WELDING TYPE ELECTRIC CORD MOST OF START UP PROBLEMS ARE BECAUSE OF THIN ELECT CORDS OR 15 AMP PLUGS. PLUG IN WASHER PLUG WITH HEAVY CORD. IF COMPRESSOR IS NOT STARTING YOU CAN USE RUBBER SLEDGE HAMMER. HIT COMPRESSOR AT SAME TIME YOU TURN IT ON .MAKE SURE COMPRESSOR AND STAT IS SET TO COOLING AND LOW TEMP YOU SHOULD HERE HUM FROM COMP. THEN HIT IT TO BREAK LOOSE. DONT MISS.
