SOURCE: traulsen refrigerator fans power up but not compressor after 12 month storage

either the tstat or the starter pack is bad - I'd start off by replacing the starter pack with a all in one type. 1/3 horse size by supco. should have it at your local parts store.

Beverage-air DW freezes

Try turning thermostat knob all the way to left or counter clockwise. This should shut the compressor off. If the compressor continues to run the thermostat is stuck closed & bad. If the compressor remains off with thermostat turned all the way to the left try turning it slightly to the right (warmest setting). See if it stops freezing. If it continues to freeze set at warmest setting replace the thermostat. Try pricing a thermostat out at Refrigeration Hardware. Link attached. Refrigeration Hardware Supply

Unit will not stay cool. Is it a thermostat, compressor?

Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly
leaking refrigerant.
A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run,
then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat.
If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not
sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping).
If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running
almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.

Refrigerator getting to cold , thermostats at mid-range. Technician said thermostats faulty , i don't share that view .Before this refrigerator condenser was changed due to a leak & corrosion on it,...

The thermostat is the only thing that turns the compressor on and off with temperature.
Turn the thermostat to its lowest setting and see if the compressor turns off.
If not,the thermostat is bad.

Freezer works fine but the fridge wont go below 10 degrees

Please check your thermostat and compressor. 1. Thermostat You need to set thermostat correctly. Put the set at middle or a bit colder. 2. Compressor. - You may have insufficient refrigerant - Low oil - Dirty evaporator.
Please observe both items above and get them fixed.

My compressor runs but I think it shuts off and stays off too long...the box gets to warm and the ice starts to melt before it starts again

First of all, before you do anything, clean the coils under the refrigerator. I couldn't tell you how many refrigerators I've 'fixed' that needed nothing more than the coils cleaned. Dirty coils can cause a multitude of problems, many of them with the exact same symptoms that would be expected when refrigerant components fail. Dirt is the #1 enemy of any refrigeration unit.

If that doesn't help, since both sides of the refrigerator get warm before the compressor kicks back on, I'd suspect the fresh food temperature control thermostat. Not an easy fix for the average homeowner unless you've got specific skills in appliance repair.

Before you do anything, try this. Turn the fresh food thermostat all the way up, the set the freezer setting at a higher than normal setting. The way the system works is that the fresh food thermometer turns the compressor on and off and the freezer control simply controls how much of the cold air from the freezer is diverted to the fresh food compartment.

If you turn the fresh food thermostat higher, the compressor will run longer and adjusting the freezer control to a higher setting will allow less cold air into the fresh food compartment, forcing the compressor to run longer in order to cool it to the thermostat setting.

If the settings have to be abnormally high, this is a workaround, rather than a fix. To get a permanent fix, you'll probably have to replace the fresh food control thermostat.

I hope this was helpful to you or to anyone reading it.

Yes you are right the thermostat is not responding to switch off the compressor at the desired temperature setting. It stay "always on" position. Replace the thermostat to rectify this problem....................sodeep
PS: low refrigerant gas could also contribute to aggravate this problem, so have it checked too by the repairman.

Refrig. not cooling, but freezer working fine

Is there ice frosted on the back wall? If so you have a defrost problem and you need to replace the thermostat, Defrost timer and heater. This ensures the problem is totally fixed. if you can nail down exactly which of these parts is the problem then just replace the problem.
