CHECK THE DEFROST HEATER FOR CONTINUITY. IF IT IS O.K. CHECK THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL FOR A FAULTY SOLDER CONNECTION ON THE DEFROST RELAY. THE ELECTRONIC BOARD SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE BACK WALL OF THE REFIGERATOR BEHIND AN ACCESS PANEL.

SOURCE: Compact Refrigerator stop cooling, I am out of ideas.

Good day,
If you hear the compressor running, then the overload and relay are O.K. It can be one of three things.
1. Leak developed in system.
2. Restriction internal in the refrigerator sealed system.
3. Valves in compressor failed, which would not provide any pumping action for the refrigerant.

None of these items are practical repairs on a compact. But if it's under warranty (under 5 years old), check with the selling dealer for warranty claim.
P.S. Does not apply if coils were punctured.

Thank you for using FixYa

Part number for compressor relay is WR7X222. However, you have a very old rotary compressor there and most likely it went bad. I would just buy a new fridge. Don't waste your time/money. The fridge is too old.

Ge turbo cool fridge doesn't cool.


If your refrigerator is not cooling, the problem could be as simple as a covered vent or something more complicated that requires the help of a service professional.

Is your thermostat set incorrectly? It's possible to accidentally bump the thermostat, so check it and reset, if necessary, to the proper coolness.

If there's ice on the evaporator cover ( typically found on the back wall), it's a sign that the evaporator coils inside could also be covered in ice and frost, indicating a defrost problem. Try unplugging the fridge and defrosting it before calling for help.

Since you are hearing no unusual sounds, the problem could be the start relay, which triggers the compressor. Have a refrigerator repair pro determine if the start relay is the culprit and to replace it if necessary.

I opened the refrigerator and its no longer cold in there, both sides.


Greetings,
The first thing is to determine if the compressor is running...if its off and not running..remove rear cover...if you hear a clicking noise once every five minutes or so...The relay may be bad...this is the part that fits on compressor terminals. remove it and shake it..if it rattles...its bad, it could even be bad and not rattle, but they usually burn out and rattle...okay, now if compressor is cold and nothing comes on..it could be off thru the defrost control or thermostat. I'm betting , its a burned out relay

My GE Compact Fridge doesn't start up, even though I left it standing upright overnight and turned the temperature dail clockwise. Yes, it's plugged in. :)


Ok so I will assume from your post that you turned the dial completly to the coldest setting and that the compressor does not come on (nothing comes on, no fans no compressor). Did you just plug it in and attempted to start it ? There is usually a delay in starting your compressor, it should come on within 10-15 minutes - if not, try turning the dial back to off and then turn it back towards the coldest - do you hear any "clicking" where the dial is at (thermostat) ? If it does not start you may have a compressor relay problem or control board problem - But for your compact refrigerator I would say more likely a bad compressor or relay / capacitor, etc.
