SOURCE: Fridge motor on too much it seems

Remember, the colder you make the thermostat, the longer the compressor will run to try and reach the required temperature. Question is," is the temperature in the fridge cold enough or not cold enough." If it is, then you will need to have the thermostat replaced.(there is no control). If not cold enough at any time, then there is an issue with the cooling circuit.(Will then need to have it checked by a technician.

SOURCE: Westinghouse fridge thermostate replacement

Without drawing a diagram, and assuming you have the controller, you need to do two things: Power the controller by finding a wire pair in the fridge that is always hot, and finding the wire that the resident thermostat uses to interrupt the operation of the compressor. This thermostat is usually located behind a panel in the top part of the refrigerator section and has a bulb that resides in the freezer. . Your controller should have an on and off range; that is, it should cut the fridge on at, say 61, and cut back off at, say, 60. You'll need some kind of range, thereby giving the compressor some "off time" of more than a couple of minutes. If you don't do this, you will reck the compressor, or it simply won't start. (Refrigeration systems need to equalize so that the compressor motor won't have to start when the pressure is really high. At equal pressure between evaporator and condensor, the motor can start easily.) . You have quite a project ahead of you. I suggest when you get into the nitty gritty of it, enlist your neighborhood MacGyver type. It shouldn't be that hard to pull off this project.

How do you get compressor running after power outage?


Hello AnnArborMom, thank you for your inquiry!

I would recommend you adjusting the temperature to a lower setting to see if that would start your compressor to cool. If that is not successful I would contact a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. It could be that the power outage shorted the main control board or relay. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Refrigerator not cold enough


Check for air flow into the fridge compartment. In these refrigerators, incoming cold air is ported in at the top left-hand side of the fridge compartment...the problem has to be with the return air vent inside the beer compartment. The return air port in a Maytag side by side refrigerator is located behind the crisper drawers in the beer compartment. Condensation can freeze in a sheet over this port blocking the return air flow, creating a warm compartment.

Termperature Control


Well, the control circuit get input from thermostat.
what you need to change is right the thermostat. I do not think there is any way to lower fridge temp if you do not replace thermostat.you could put an additional switch to turn on/off manually the compressor when you need extra cold, but in this way you risk to damage the motor.
You need to change the thermostat with one that switch on at a lower temperature. to do this you may need to use a non-fabric part.

True T-49 refrigerator/freezer temperature calibration


Contact the manufacture, it is most likely going to be covered under warranty. If the knob is not removable, (check for a set screw on the side of the knob it will take a small allen wrench) Then the thermostat (temp controller) will need to be replaced, if it isn't a style that you can calibrate.

I'm unable to set GE Profile Arctica ridge to recommended temp


OK, First let us check the compressor to see if running or trying to start. Pull away from wall and unplug from wall. Remove lower cover and feel the compressor top of the to see if too hot to hold hand there, cool or warm. look inside freezer and tell me if ice is building on rear wall. Answer that and I will be able to tell you what we need to do, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Liquids frozen in refrigerator, no water from water dispenser


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge seems to require max cold temp control


did you check to be sure the the compressor cooling fan is operational? if this is bad it will cause a problem similar to your condition. another thing if this checks ok is that your temp control could be getting weak, ( it has small springs connected to the contacts) and may need replacing. the fact that it will get to 0f tells me that compressor and freon system should be fine.
you mentioned the warm area on the side of your door is a anti moisture feature. if this area is abnormally hot it would indicate a bad condenser fan motor which is the compressor cooling fan.
If you have any further questions let me know thanks Peyton

Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough


If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.
