I own a Fogel Fridge Model # VR-17-RE-PR Recently


Richard,
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

At 100 deg.it does not shutoff automatically


If your talking about a refrigerator, it never will as its goal is to try and cool, and its trying. It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run.

Comptrssor cuts off wont start


Michael,
If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is getting really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off. I suspect the start/overload relay is bad and causes a high amperage draw which will then cause the over load to kick in. This start/over load relay will normally be right on the compressor and any decent appliance parts store will have a replacement.

Why does my compressor trip the breaker after filling with air


1 of 2 things #1 the pressure releive valve that lets the pressure of the pump when it kicks off is stuck closed so what is happening is when the compressor kicks back on its under a load and trips braker. #2 your braker is to small for the compressor.

Compressor is locked up. You have an outside chance of getting it to come back if you install a hard start capacitor. When a locked compressor tries to start it gets hot really fast and kicks the power off to prevent wires from overheating. You can get a hard start kit from wwgrainger or refrigeration supply company. Many times they won't sell direct to the end user. The hard start kit gives it an extra boost when it tries to start. Most times this won't work. Usually the compressor has to be replaced because it is burned out internally. The hard start kit is less than $20.00, so its worth a shot.
