That could be the thermostat is defective or the compressor is not starting properly. Pull away from wall and unplug. Remove compressor cover and feel the compressor top for heat or cool or too hot to place hand there. That will help me tell me your the next step, Sea Breeze

Our fridge compressor won't run after a power outage, can it be reset?


compressors use a small start / run capacitor to start the compressor
modern fridges do not like spikes from power outages and many power boards and electronic components fail because of this and I am inclined top use a surge protector before the fridge cord plug
I went google and typed in --fault code 88-88 for samsung fridge model rf26aewp and the first site up is error codes /messages/ blinking

Hi I lost my manual to my westpoint tropical chest freezer, and wanted to find out how the fast freezer switch works. Does it mean when i switch it off the freezer goes off? or is it just a switch to help...


Hi
Normally a fast freeze button is just that, it turns the compressor on permanently to freeze things down quickly.
I suspect that your run light is linked to the thermostat, and does not indicate that the freezer is turned off but that the temperature of the freezer is above the temperature set on the thermostat and the compressor is running to bring the temperature down. Once the temperature is at or below the thermostat temperature then the compressor will stop and the red light probably goes out, indicating the the freezer is at the right temperature.
It won't go out with the fast freeze on because to freeze food quickly the thermostat is by-passed and the compressor runs continuously.
Hope this helps.

Freezer not running at all


You will need a meter. I wouldn't worry too much about the light unless you realy need it. There is a good chance some moisture has got into the connection and ruined the switch. But if you have no light and no compressor running I would have to check where the main connections are for power to the freezer. If you have power to the receiving end of thempower cord then I would move to the t-stat to see if the contacts are closing when you turn it colder. If they do and you have power through the t-stat then move to the compressor. Pull the little black cover off of the compressor when the power is off for safety reasons, then plug it in and check for incoming power to the compressor. If it is there then you may have a faulty compressor or overload or relay. But that is a slim to nun chance. Probubally the compressor. To check the compressor pull all of the wires off of the compressor remembering where they go( unplug freezer first). Then use the ohm meter and chech across all three terminals. Two terminals will have a low ohm reading 1-5. Then the other will be 5-10 the the last will add up the the others if it woes not then the compressor is shot.

good luck

Orange light is on instead of green light on freezer what does this mean


Most often the old freezer has three indicator lights.
- Green light : that it is brought to a power source and turned on - Red light : means that the temperature is above -18 degrees - orange light : pressing the so-called S-switch which means that the compressor is running continuously. The S-button switch on a few hours before you begin deep-freeze foods. Freezing time depending on foods quantity (kg). With old freezer must be careful to turn off the switch S (orange light) when the red light goes out or when foods are frozen, otherwise after a few days may burn out the compressor. You should be following the instructions from user manual.
In new freezer managed by the electronics, this function has a predetermined maximum duration, in order to protect the compressor, and can have different marketing names like "shopping".....

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. Power coming into freezer. Light inside works, and the temp setting on the door works. Not getting any power through the system to the compressor.


Contact a professional. The power supply source needs to be testing to the compressor and see if the power is fine, or if the compressor is faulty and not drawing needed power.

Chest freezer power light on, run light off and all my food is defrosted. How do I fix it


Take off the service panel and check for the compressor running. Can you place your hand on
it or is it too hot. If it is you might change the relay to the compressor.Take your model no. to your local parts store and they will help you look at the part and exactly where it is located (on the compressor) Easy change out.
If the compressor is not running at all then remove the two wires to the thermostat and plug them
together (They will plug together if you turn one backwards and plug it into the other.)
Make sure you have unplugged the freezer while you are doing this.
Now you have routed around the thermostat.
If it runs then replace the thermostat and youre done!
If not after the relay and thermostat check it wont run then you have a bad compressor.
On the relay ask for a hard start relay for a freezer or ref. at the parts store. They know exactly
what it is. Its even easier to install. Don't be shy to repair this. You can do it or condemn it
Thank you for using fixya

I have a chest freezer model AFFC1526DW2 it stopped freezing. The power light is still on. What could be the problem


the thermostat may not be turning on the compressor.
Do you hear a buzz and or clicking every few minutes when plugged in? If so the compressor is trying to start indicating a problem with the compressor. you could check the windings for continuity or a short and then try a 3-in-1 start kit.

Frigidaire for Kenmore Freezer-Compressor won't start


Set the thermostat to the coldest and check if there's power to the compresor relay , if yes the relay or the compresor are bad (in this case replace the relay which is the cheaper first step ,but if the compresor still won't start probably is burned out) If there isn't power to the compresor put a jumper wire to the thermostat if the compresor runs replace the thermostat.

Kenmore Freezer Model 253.26732104 Compressor


the defrost timer may need reseting. when the defrost is on, it cuts power to the compressor so they don't run at the same time. it's usually behind the bottom front grate on the right side. also check the main circuit board. there's a fuse on it.

Kenmore chest freezer


check light inside .on? you got power. check compressor in back on? if no then you probably have a bad stat. open door and look inside for numbered dial. turn max hot to max cold back and forth. if compressor comes on you need a new stat probably. remember only a stat a compressor on these units. if its hot stat should send power to compressor. if power is arriving at compressor and not running then start relay and or start cap are probably bad. but if compressor is running and still no cool then your probably out of freon. unfortunitly these boxes are made with steel tubing in the cabinets. when you move them lots of times the tubing rusts and ruptures. then your all done. new freezer time. they are sealed to the point there are not even a place to apply gages to check charge. you can gently remove power and then stat and jump thermomstat to take it out of equation and if compressor runs you need a new stat. constant power comes in one side of the stat and when the sensing tube is heated it closes the points to the outlet side and puts power to the compressor. there may also be a ground wire usually green be sure to observe which two are power in and power out. usually side by side. good luck
