Sorry to dissapoint you but if the compressor has stopped then its either the thermostat or the compressor motor ,if your not sure what the fault is then use another lead direct to the motor and see if the motor works if it works then its the thermostat which is easy to change ,if motor doesnt work then just buy a new fridge/freezer as its cheaper than paying labour to change the compressor

Ge profile 26 pfss6pkx Light comes on but won't get cold, no fan running


It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

F5 code on Asko 7305, can humidity sensor be bypassed?


I've had luck vacuuming the lint and dust out of the humidity sensor on my Asko. Suggest trying that first. While you're in there you might also exercise the connectors at the circuit board end of the sensor's cable(s). If they're corroded, some simple unplugging and replugging a few times might burnish the connectors. I've observed that our dryer will sometimes run longer than necessary on days when the relative humidity is high. Not very often but enough to suspect a trend. If your environmental air is humid, I would wonder if you're experiencing a similar condition. Every couple of years I take the dryer outside and blow it out with the air compressor: air chamber including heater coils as well as all the innards. This also gives me a chance to keep an eye on the belt!

Hot spots on outside of Amana fridge. sxd22s2w model


if it feels like it's running hot check the coil to see if it needs to be cleaned,remove the bottom kick plate and look at the coil,the coil should be cleaned once every 6 to 12 months,also pull the fridge out,remove the back bottom panel,make sure the condenser fan is blowing and vac out any lint near the fan and compressor,also check the cover that you removed and clean that too.you might want to unplug the fridge while you clean back there so you don't hit the fan blade,wait 5 minutes before you plug it back in so the compressor can reset itself.there are gas lines that run through the frame of the machine,if the coil is jammed with dust and lint the machine runs hotter,this is how it cools off through the condenser coil and the fan blows the air around to help cool it down,if it runs hot then the freon will run hot and you could feel it on the frame and in the strip where the doors close together.you can buy a brush that you can push into the holes of the coil to pull the dust out or if you have a shop vac you can vac out as much as you can and then put it on blow and blow the dust out of the coil,just hit it with short bursts or the dust will blow everywhere.

Not pulling down to temperture


The most common problem is low refrigerant (freon). If you don't have gauges to check the pressure of your refrigerant, do this: the compressor has one small line running to the coils on the top of the freezer. That small line should be hot enough to burn your finger if you touch it when the compressor is running. Also the big copper tube running into the compressor should be cold to the touch, almost freezing. If not you are probably low on refrigerant. Without gauges and the ability to buy freon, you will need to hire a refrigeration repair service to find the leak in your system, repair it and then gas it up. But there are a couple of other things to check first. Near the compressor is a radiator like set of coils in front of a fan. If the compressor is running that fan should be running too. if not, the unit won't cool. Also the radiator coils may be covered with dust or grease. You must have a good flow of air through these coils to dissapate the heat put out by the compressor.If it is stopped up, brush the dust from the front of the coils. Look inside the freezer as well and make sure the inside coils are not frozen over. Is so unplug the unit and let the frost melt off. If that is happening you may need a new timer on your drfrost system.

The freezer is staying @ 10deg, set at -2deg. I had a message "vacuum condenser" I did turned of & then on message has not appeared for more than a day. no new message, seems to be constantly...


I\'ve been struggling trying to keep our 2 goldens dog hair from the coils of our 8 year old Kenmore side by side with "W" compressor coils, but like everyone else was unable to clean past the first set of coils.



I came up with this solution that worked to get much of the big stuff, hair and bunnies, off of the further back coils. Not perfect but much better than nothing.



Removing the back lower panel I was able to snake a crevice attachment from our vacuum down the right side of the coils (left side looking from back)

1aa41853-285c-463f-bd91-ac26c363d61a.jpg



I made a compressed air contraption to blow the dust/hair across the coils using a compressed air nozzle that I added a 10" long tube and a 90 degree deflector

5f5916f7-5730-4d05-9c7a-4c542105e73a.jpg



From the front of the fridge, on the left side of the coils, I snaked the compressed air nozzle towards the back and started directing the air stream blowing towards the vacuum crevice tool at the opposite side of the coils.

ec2499ae-b621-4a34-ab2b-d02c092099ab.jpg



The compressed air dislodged the hair/dust enough that the vacuum was able to suck it away. Again, not perfectly but certainly much better than I was able to clean the coils in the past.



I suppose you could use a can of compressed air and add some sort of deflector if you don\'t have a compressor.



I then got to thinking how to prevent the dust from accumulating on the coils, I\'m going to try an air conditioner filter. I cut it slightly oversized to fit the front opening then split it in half to make it thinner for more air flow.

Picture taken before making the filter thinner. For years I had my calendar remind me monthly to vacuum the coils but now hopefully I\'ll be able to simply change the air filter.

Not blowing cold in freezer or refrigerator. compressor is hot to touch, fan is blowing


HI. The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor. You should clean rear-mounted coils once a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Refrigerators are heavy, never tip one forward or backward. Never attempt to move a refrigerator without an assistant. Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the electrical components of the refrigerator.You should clean floor level coils at least twice a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Vacuum or brush the coils. Remove the grill from the front of the refrigerator and use a vacuum with a wand attachment to remove any dust and debris. The grill should snap off and on. Pull firmly toward you and possibly upward to remove the grill. If it does not come off with a modest effort, check for screws or retaining clips that may hold it in place.

Black ball like motor very hot


"Unplug the unit before attempting any servicing" The "Black Ball" is the compressor. If it's excessively hot it is because it is being overworked. There should be a small fan next to it to circulate air past it and the condenser coils beneath the box. Make sure the fan is running, removing any obstruction to the contrary such as a dead mouse or excessive dust. If the fan doesn't run because it doesn't turn free as in lack of lubrication, try a spritz of light oil such as WD-40 on the shaft. While you're there, be sure to clean the dust from the coils under the box. The system (read "Black Ball") and the coils will overheat if they are insulated by excessive dust or if the dust prohibits airflow.
