1 Answer

2E 38N two year old pump runs for twenty minutes or so now and shuts off or shorts out. I reset gfi and can get another twenty minutes shortly thereafter. Noticed the green rubber/plastic housing has worn through on the bottom. Do I need to replace pump?

I would, if its kicking out the gfi that means the integrity of the electrical components of the pump are compromised.Either a cord leak or seal leak, buy a new one, cheaper than fixing it

One thing you might check is to make sure there is not cold air blowing across the thermostat from one of the vents. I've seen this many times make the thermostat short cycle.

Some less expensive thermostats may be programmed to short cycle. If you have instructions available for the thermostat, try to find information or the "heat anticipator". It may have an adjustable setting.

The refrigerator run loud for twenty minutes or so then it stops for ten minutes and starts running loud again

If the noise is coming from the back of the fridge, it could be the compressor is dying. Its cycling and over heating shutting off then trying to restart a short time after once the thermal overlaod resets. You hould call a service tech sooner than later.
