Fridge and frezzere stopped working. Odd smell almost like overheating. Couldn't adjust the temp dials seperately they both were at same number and if you adjusted it automatically adjusted same on each dial. Unplugged the unit, lef *** and then plugged it in and it seems okay?

Replace the ptc overload relay on the compressor body,it merely unplugs and a new replacement plugs in,available from any appliance parts distributor,they get weak and will not stay "latched" to keep the compressor powered due to high heat and current draw after so long

My refrigerator is 15 years old. it has a top freezer. has been a good refrigerator until a few weeks ago. the motor is a lot noisier and the area around the freezer door ( top and sides) is really...


The compressor may be short cycling due to a condenser fan stopping while the compressor is running. The heat you feel is coming from the hot gas cycling through what is called a yoder loop. The yoder loop is there to prevent moisture buildup around the door seal. When this area becomes hot it means that something is wrong with the cooling fan below the refrigerator and cleaning the area may help. Please be aware that the fan may appear to be running normally but keep an eye out after cleaning because a bad fan does not always stop all the way and I have made up to three trips before catching one that has stopped. Always unplug the power before attempting to reach inside the compressor area. Feel compressor top to see if warm, hot or too hot to keep hand on top. Again this problem can be the condenser fan, dirty condenser restricting air flow or the start components of the compressor are worn out or all of the above. Fixing this now may extend your refrigerators life another 10 years. If you have any questions I will be here to assist you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

If the coils were really dirty, the compressor is probably just overheated. Let it cool down overnight then try again. If it still won't stay running it needs serviced. Could be the start relay or internal overload/overheat sensor in the compressor. If the coils were really dirty and it was used like this for a long time, the compressor could be damaged. It is almost never worth replacing a compressor in a home refrigerator.

Amana Refrigeration stopped running


If the compressor is at room temperature and no noise coming from it your problem could be the thermostat control. If the compressor is hot and you hear a hum followed by a click the compressor may have failed. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. In those operating temperatures the compressor is overworking in the first place and if it is not getting free air flow across the condenser it can burn out. Best condition for operating any refrigerator is to remember that if you feel hot it feels hot. They are designed to operate in an place where we live and at the temperatures we live in.

Samsung RS2555SL humming noise


don't know this model specifically, but have had loads of problems with these samsung fridge-freezers. the no water in drinks dispensor is probably due to the water bottle at the bottom of the fridge being frozen. this is endemic with samsung the noise you hear is ice hitting fan. samsung use two systems for fan. the one i think you have is separate fans for fridge and freezer and a separate evaperator for fridge and freezer. take of the back plate of the fridge and you will find the fan mounted in it. disconnect the plug and socket connection. you will probably find ice build up round the fan blade. melt off with hot water. the bar you had showing on the "8" is a fault code - the most common fault being the defrost termination sensor. unless you are experienced, this is not really a diy appliance
