Samsung rb2055sl running warm 55 degrees in refrigerator and 70 degrees in freezer fan is working no ice, way to warm


Is there a clicking noise? Feel the compressor to see if too hot to keep your hand on top. Look ate the frost pattern in rear of the freezer compartment and tell me the results. Several things could be causing the compressor to get hot and not run. Freon leak is one thing that could happen and defective start relay, overload and run capacitor is another. You could also have a defective cooling fan under fridge or inside the freezer compartment

Whirlpool side by side not cooling


The round object is the compressor. Is it running continuously, or is it clicking on and off every 2 or 3 minutes? There also should be a fan beside compressor. Is it running? Also check Fan in freezer to see if it is running. Is there any frost build up on inside back freezer wall? If fans are working and compressor is running continuously and there is no frost buildup in freezer, then you most likely have a sealed system problem meaning its low on freon or there is a blockage in system.

Hi
You have condesation built up in your freezer whereby the evaporator fan or the vents are most likely blocked off.

Turn fridge off. Empty freezer and either put a pot of boiling water inside freezer or with the aid of a hair dryer try to defrost the freezer. If you are able to remove the back panel on the freezer that would be ideal as you can directly target the frost.
Good luck

Our GE side-by-side refrigerator (model GS225) is not cooling. Freezer is at 55 degrees and the refrigerator is at 70 degrees. The fan condensor in the back was dirty so we cleaned it. Could that be the...


Check the compressor relay. All fans should be running when the compressor is except during post dwell. In post dwell the compressor and fan con on but the inside ones do not come on for a specified time. SEE ADC how it works.

Freezer is running perfectly, the fridge temp is about 65 degrees and not cooling


You want to check a couple things.
1. Look inside the freezer. Is the freezer fan running?
2. If the freezer fan is running check the air vents. Remove the food from the freezer. Remove the bottom freezer liner panel to access the air vent in the rear center of the freezer. It will be frozen closed with ice. Defrost it with a hair dryer.
3. Make sure all dial settings are set at their mid-points.

Fans inside freezer will not turn - no cooling - compressor fan underneath is turning


The fans are controlled with a clixon that has a cut in at 5 degrees, and cut out at 20 degrees. If the unit is running and the fans are not comng on then I would have to say you are out of freon. But your condensor fan could be running and the compressor NOT be running which could be a problem with your compressor. Find out if your compressor is running by taking an amp draw. If compressor IS running then you are low on freon. If the compressor is running and your evaporator coil is cold and your fans AREN'T coming on then your clixon is bad.

Stuck at 77 degrees!


Hi

Do not assume the problem is related to the compressor or the sealed, hermetic system; these types of problems happen only rarely. Your unit may have dirty condenser coils, a door that doesn't seal tightly, or a defective temperature control.
1) Check the cold control. Be sure it is set to "cold." Normally, the temperature inside the unit should be about 37 degrees Fahrenheit.

2) Listen for the freezer fan inside the freezer. When the freezer fan is running, it means the defrost timer and the cold control in the unit are both set to cool.

3) Listen for the compressor fan, where the compressor is located (typically behind or beneath the refrigerator. When the freezer fan is operating, the compressor fan should also be working (most of the time).

4) If one of the fans is not working or the compressor is off, the unit will offer very little cooling or none at all.

hope you will be helpfull..

Air conditioning unit not cooling


the problem sounds like a defective capacitor its located on the condensing unit outside, also a contactor that is used can be defective also.
