SOURCE: Not cooling....

Sounds like you checked for the proper items, fans to move cold air, etc. and if stuck in defrost mode. If the compressor is running you would have to be cooling unless... the refrigerant has leaked out. And that is basically a bad thing. If in defrost cycle the compressor would stop while defrosting soooo it's looking like the refrigerant is gone. Can you take the back interior panel off to see if the coils have a full frost pattern?

SOURCE: I have a ed5fhgxkq00 side by side Whirlpool refridgerator that stopped cooling.

If the compressor has a fan next to it, be sure it is running. if the relay is clicking every few minutes it may need to be replced. contact local parts distributor.

SOURCE: Does not cool. Compressor is running, fans are

Hi, Look in the freezer section and see if there is frost building up on the rear inside panel. If the is frost, on of three parts are bad in the automatic defrost.
If there is no frost, the compressor might be weak and not pumping the coolant as strong as it should.
Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer sevtion and see if the evaporator is frosting at all.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further with this issue.

SOURCE: it will run for a little while then cut off. it

the compressor is overheating, you will need to check and see if the compressor fan is running at the back of the fridge. If not, this is what you need to replace. If it is then you will need to clean all of the dust and debris out of the condensor coils so the compressor can breathe.

Why does my sanyo model KHS2472 has a red light blinking in heat mode and a green in cooling mode, does not work in either mode makes a gurgling sound when it tries to run?


Hi,
The red light indicates it's either heating or in defrost mode
Check the outdoor unit if the compressor is running - the large pipe on the outdoor unit should be hot on heating or cool to touch on cooling
When in heating mode - the indoor fan will not start until the indoor coil is warm enough
If the reversing valve that changes from heating to cooling is faulty then you may encounter the same symptoms too
Probably need a Refrig Tech to have a look at it?
Good luck

Only the compressor is running but not the fan


if the fan next to the compressor is not working you need to replace it otherwise the compressor will get hot due to no cooling air above also make sure the condensing coil is also clean for proper circulation you should have your unit working if you follow this steps...good luck

My True TD 50 18 beer cooler does not cool beers


If you hear a clicking noise coming from the compressor there is about a 80% chance that the compressor is dead. But you'll have to call someone out to be sure.
If the fan motor behind the grill is running (condenser fan) then the compressor should be running and vice versa. If the compressor is hot as a pistol and clicking and the fan motor is not working then it may cool down if you shut it off and you might just have a bad fan motor. With power turned off the condenser fan motor should freely spin. Compressor have a 5 year warranty from the manufacture not including labor and additional materials. Hope this helps.

My True beer cool stopped cooling last night what should I do ?


That is a broad question. Lets do a checklist. When you plug the unit in the compressor behind the grill on the front should come on and the fan in front of the compressor should come on. The radiator in the compressor compartment needs to be clean from all dust and grease. Many times this is overlooked and can cause real problems by letting the compressor overheat. Now look inside and find the fan cover. It hangs from the inside top of the cooler. It should also be running. If either fan is not running the unit will not cool. Sometimes there is an obstruction, such as someone pushing a six pack up against the fan cover and pushing it into the fan. The fan down by the compressor is sometimes blocked by the cardboard shroud that is built around the fan. Also in a few cases rodents have gotten caught in that fan. If everything is running, you will have to look deeper into the compressor compartment. There is a screw in the front of the radiator that hold the compressor unit in the cooler. Unplug the unit from the wall. Remove that screw and slowly and carefully pull the compressor unit towards the front of the beer box. It will slide almost all the way out. You will see a coil of copper tubing at the back of the compressor that allows enough slack in the lines to slide this unit out. When you push this unit back in it helps to have someone behind the cooler to pull back on that coil as you push the unit back into the machine so it does not get crimped. With the compressor unit pulled out, plug it back in at the wall. If your compressor is running and you have proper amount of refrigerant, the small copper tube from the compressor to the radiator will get very hot, enough to burn your finger, after two or three minutes. After 10 minutes the larger copper line that is usually enclosed in a rubber sheathing should get cold. One way to know if you have a burned out compressor is to listen to the compressor and fans when you first plug into the power outlet. A bad compressor will usually try to start for 2 or 3 seconds and then click out. While it is trying to start the fan will slow down because the compressor is pulling way too many amps and is pulling power away from the fan until it clicks out again. If you can hear the compressor come on and run but it makes no heat to the radiator, you probably have a refrigerant leak. Your freon is gone or almost gone. If it was a slow leak you would usually notice that the cooler does not seem to cool like it once did. If it was working good and suddenly stopped cooling, the most likely problem is a bad compressor. Changing a compressor is usually beyond the average do it yourselfer because it requires welding the unit in place and gauges and a supply of refrigerant which is almost impossible to get without a liscense. Let me know what you find out.
