It sounds as though your outside motor has failed. If you have a long shafted screwdriver, you can attempt to spin the motor to see if the motor has seized up. Caution should be used as the motor may start if the unit is calling for cooling when you attempt this. If you can manually start the motor, then chances are the capacitor has failed.

Check it out and replace the motor if need be. That should get you back up and running.

Top freezer not cold fan isn't always on either

Hello Fred;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I have a top freezer because they are the most reliable and least expensive to repair.

It sounds like one of several problems:

Unplug your unit. Remove the back panel of your freezer. You may

1.) Frozen drain - Your unit will go through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours. When this occurs, your unit will shut down for 20-30 minutes and your defrost heater will turn on. Everything will shut down except for your lights. Then your unit turns back on.

There is a drain hole behind your freezer back wall. This is easily unplugged with warm water. If the drain hole is plugged up with ice your cooling coil will become blocked up. This may also prevent your cooling coil fan from running.

2.) Cooling fan is starting to go - If your cooling coils are not plugged up and ice is not restricting your cooling coil fan, then perhaps your fan is starting to go. This is a easy replacement. Lets check - You need a multi-meter to do this. You can purchase one for about $25.00 at Lowes or Home Depot. This is a good thing to have. It will save you a lot of money with repair on all of your appliances.
Set the multi-meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol) With your unit unplugged, You have three wires to the motor. Disconnect them all. The small one is a ground wired, the other 2 are power wires. Put one meter lead on the one motor contactor and the other lead on the other contactor. You should get a reading of "0" Ohms if the motor is good. Anything else the motor the motor is bad.

There is a temperature sensor on the upper right hand side of your cooling coil. If the back of this round 3/8" diameter sensor has exploded, them you need a new sensor.

Give me a model number on your fresh food section side wall near the top and I can be more specific. Call be @ 443-306-1362 and we can take it from there.

I addred coolant to the AC unit a few weeks ago and it has been running fine until last night. I went to check the pressure and make sure the line was not frozen this morning since the indoor air climbed...

It is just coincidental that the fan motor died now...
Replace the condenser fan motor and you will be good again...

Troubleshooting airconditioners

take the case off.
look at all the filth in the back fins.
get that out without puncturing anything
or cutting your fingers, or breaking the fan, etc.

Use a hose and MIST spray.. a hard spray will bend the fins
Use 2 dull hacksw blades to straighten fins if many squashed.

Bonus: find the oil hole caps on motor, open, add oil (10w30 fine)

Of course this wont work for punctured units, dead motors, compressors, etc.. but filt is your #1 A/C killer.

Get cleaning! Do it once a year, before it gets hot.
