The problem is with your freezers control board. Replacing that will fix your problem. You can check your control board part number after taking it out would cost ~$100,you yourself can easily perform the board replacement which will take 5 to 10 minutes. Visit the local appliance store and get the new control board, unplug the refrigerator, pull two screws that hold a white plastic box (in the bottom back right corner), which holds the control board in side.Remove the lid off, pull the 3 wire connections, pried the little plastic connection which holds the control board in the box. then pulled the board out, You may even find some burn marks on the box which would be there due to shorting of control board. put the new board in.

I have a side by side fridge and the freezer side just keeps on running like all. The motor is really hot and the floor under the fridge is too.


Sounds like the compressor starter is locked up and needs to be replaced. Or the thermostat is either stuck or the contacts have melted together and it will continue to run till replaced. You can unplug it for a while to see if cooling down will help but if not then you will have to use the plug as the on off switch till you get it replaced. Is the fridge cold? is there ice built up all over the coils, this also might cause the issue if the coils are froozen and the unit is running but not cooling. The freezer is what cools the fridge so if the fridge is not cool then there may be a problem with the coils.
Here are some trouble shooting tips.

Last night, we had an electrical issue... water got into an outside socket which knocked out the ground faulted outlet inside, which took out the fridge too. Once we identified what had happened we reset...


The compressor is high siding....i.e there was a BRIEF power outtage and it was repowered before the coolant system stabilized to the compressor does not stand a chance of starting due to high pressures so about every 4 minutes or so you should hear a click or note a brief blink for about 40 seconds of lights in the home. This is the termal overload cycling. The compressor / coolant system needs to equalize. Unplug it for 30 minutes then plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. After a 10 minutes... feel the front of the chassis where the doors close. It should be warm to the touch. If you feel the chassis is warm... after 10 minutes everything should be back to normal. IF not respond with a complete model number. My bet is it will start after a 30 min rest.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a 2 year old LEC T2856w fridge freezer and the fridge keeps freezing everything, it seems to be warmer at the top and makes a wall of ice on the back


That sounds like an a refrigeration engineer is required as if the gas pressure has dropped, it will no longer cool properly.

My GE GSS22JERF BB refrigerator, is making a clicking noise. This noise is coming from the back of the fridge. Can you tell me the problem?


The clicking noise will be the radiator expanding and contracting due to the heat exchanger removing the heat from the food in the fridge.

My Panasonic refrigerator NR-B420T is not cooling, however the freezer part still cooling.


Top of Form

Since there is cooling on the freezer the fault can be the defrost timer. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Here we go, I have a GE side by side about 6 years old... Started with the icemaker not dispensing ice consistently... then the ice stopped all together (even though the bin was full and not froze solid)....


The clicking you are hearing is the relay unit. Now it is for sure that the compressor is not working as the relay keep s tripping off.
So first of all to clear this doubt, let us checck the relay unit which is clicking. remove and check. most of the time the relays need to be replaced as a poor contact will not deliver good voltage to the compressor and it will shut off. So check this out.
One the compressor works and you notice there is cooling the sytem seems ok except that you must check if the thermostat, the auto defrost cut off timer works.
If after the compressor works the cooling is not good then you can decide on a replacement than to spend for expensive repairs
