    I don't think there is a compressor with this model.

    Per website:
    The Avanti Superconductor Refrigerator - Black provides 1.7 cubic feet of refrigeration capacity with quiet thermoelectric cooling technology. The unit uses R134A refrigerant, but has no compressor, allowing quiet operation while performing as efficiently as a compressor would, while featuring auto-defrosting technology. You get all the functionality you deserve, with...

    Sorry, it has to be a solinoid or PCB in my experience when you call out someone to look at it these electrical problems they charge a load of money, I would stick with what I said earlier dump it.

  • younes1000 Aug 04, 2010

    In short no, its a shame as you get no digital display to show error numbers etc of where the prblem is, these can be like a needle in a hey stack to find the fault.

  • mlsmith350 Aug 04, 2010

    Thanks for the advice. It's a shame they can't make a refrigerator that lasts longer than 4 years. I just bought a Sunbeam with a compressor. Hopefully this one will last longer.

dude- all the wholes in your pc closed off??? if so then your fan what is it barring or magnetic? if it is baring then you will need to replace... my guess it is.. if it were magnetic it would just stop PERIOD...the fan isn\'t spinning enough ( high enough rpm\'s) to keep a constant flow at the rate in which the CPU needs or heat sink needs....you should have a diags in or with in your bios....run those it\'ll tell you what it is at or what it should be at... you can make decision then.... if your fan isn\'t running then just replace fan. If fan is running and your diags isn\'t loaded or doesnt have the utility ...you will need to swapp the fan from a good working PC or buy a new one.. if you STILL have issue thn your problem lays with in the power supply... it is either your MAIN power supply or it is your motherboard (12v) then you will need another mother board. hope this helps!!!!



P.S. is your fan clean heat sink clean?????

My fridge gets really hot on top and between the fridge and freezer where the door meets


next time send the model number and brand name.usually when this happens is the condenser fan motor isn't working.pull the fridge out,remove the bottom back panel and check the fan to see if it's working,if it is check the condenser coil to see if it's filled with lint and dust,it could just need to be cleaned out but if it's that hot most likely the fan isn't running,if you get this tonight check it now,if the fan isn't running you could blow the compressor,the condenser fan blows and keeps the compressor cool enough so it doesn't overheat by moving the hot air and the heat also esscapes through the condenser coil so if that's clogged with dust the machine will run hotter than normal,if the fan isn't running you can stick any window fan back there and blow it onto the compressor to keep it cool until you fix the condenser fan motor,this way you won't loose any food and if the compressor goes it's new fridge time,to much to repair.hope this helps and good luck with your machine.one more thing,i've found the fans not running and by pushing the blade it runs again,if this happens the fan could run and never have a problem or it could stop an hour later but i would change it out no matter what.if it's a G.E. fridge and the motor isn't running,most likely it will be the computer board,i've found 10 machines doing this and the temp. settings turning on and off or the evap fan motor in the freezer runs slow and then fast and the condenser fan isn't running or running slowly,this is why you have to send the brand name and model number.

I am in saudiarab i have crown victoria 97 model it is working good but i have problum in air condition system when i run my car its running good no problum but when i start my air condition it is heating...


The air conditioning condenser creates a lot of heat when the a/c is on. The cooling fan is supposed to run the whole time the a/c is on to keep it cool. If the fan isn't on, the radiator will absorb this heat and cause your car to over heat. You should also check your coolant level. So, it sounds to me like your cooling fan isn't working.

I have a rooftop ac unit on my popup that was replaced two years ago. The unit works fine but I would like the fan to shut off when the compressor isn't running. Is there a switch for putting the fan...


Please describe your controls. Does it not have low fan, high fan, low cool, high cool on the dial at ceiling? If yes, low cool or high cool setting should shut it down when temperature is reached via thermostat dial.

The outside unit has power going to it but isn't


maybe it has tripped off on high pressure, as you have have said the fan is not turning so will cause high pressure. now assuming the problem is the fan is not running than check the condition of the condensator /capacitor for the fan motor. if the motors winding is still good replace the capacitor and try it ON.

Fan outside isn't running and when turned on the unit outside is running very loud.


The fan outside keeps your compressor cool, the compressor, if left running without the fan running to cool it down can get damaged, the fan normally gets its power from a switch box located outside or near
it. or the motor on the fan could have just gone bad. the fan motor is not as expensive as the compressor to replace. its easy to replace. sometimes what goes out 1st on these motors is the capacitor,the capacitor stores enough voltage to give the motor that extra push to turn. many times its just the capacitor that goes out. when you purchase a motor make sure you also get the matching capacitor.if you can turn the fan and it starts running, its the capacitor, if it starts running and has any kind of bearing noise then you will have to replace the motor. good luck!

On engines with belt-driven cooling fans, a fan clutch is often used to save energy and reduce noise. The fan clutch disengages slows or disengages the engine's cooling fan when extra cooling isn't needed. The fan pulls air through the radiator and air conditioning condenser when the vehicle isn't moving fast enough to provide adequate airflow for cooling. A fan can eat up anywhere from a couple of horsepower up to 12 or 15 hp on a big V8, so by reducing the parasitic horsepower loss on the engine the fan clutch makes a noticeable difference in fuel economy.

A slipping fan clutch is often overlooked as the cause of an engine overheating problem.

As a fan clutch ages, fluid deterioration gradually causes an increase in slippage (about 200 rpm per year). After a number of years of service, the clutch may slip so badly that the fan can't keep up with the cooling needs of the engine and the engine overheats. At this point, replacement is often necessary.

Other signs of fan cluch failure would include any looseness in the clutch (check for fan wobble), or oil streaks radiating outward from the clutch hub.

If the clutch is binding, the fan may not release causing excessive cooling and noise, especially at highway speeds

CHECKING THE FAN CLUTCH

A good clutch should offer a certain amount of resistance when spun by hand (engine off, of course!). But if the fan spins with little resistance (more than 1 to 1-1/2 turns), the fan clutch is slipping too much and needs to be replaced.

If the fan binds, does not turn or offers a lot of resistance, it has seized and also needs to be replaced.

Fan speed can also be checked with an optical tachometer, by marking one of the fan blades with chalk and using a timing light to observe speed changes, and/or listening for changes in fan noise as engine speed changes.

You should also try to wiggle the fan blades by hand. If there is any wobble in the fan, there is a bad bearing in the fan clutch, or a worn bearing on the water pump shaft. A bad water pump bearing will usually cause the water pump to leak and/or make noise, but not always. Remove the fan clutch and see if the play is in the water pump shaft. If it feels tight (no play or wobble), replace the fan clutch.

I posted this to another Ford Problem and I believe it applies to you as well.

This is a shot in the dark with out running diagnostics myself but here it goes, I had a 1988 Cavalier that would just die while I was driving it. On short drives, in the morning, when the engine was cool... it would not die. It would only die after the engine heated up to a certain point.

I took it all over the place to see what the problem was and nobody could figure it out, until finally I took it to my local Firestone shop and they had a special diagnostic tool that checked all of the electrical connections and low and behold I had a misc. wire that crossed the back of my engine from one side of the engine bay to the other. This wire was melted to my engine block and when the engine heated up to a certain point the wire would short out.

After they pinpointed the wire they replaced it with an in-tact wire and it worked beautifully.

Again, I am not stating that this is for sure your problem, but take it from me that there are better diagnostics to run then your standard error code ODB II dump.

Hope that helps and let me know if there are any developments.

Dell Inspiron Fan running constantly and very loud. Can I replace with Quieter Fan? If so, what fan model and Who would you suggest have replace it? Or are there other options? This is driving me...


Stock fans tend to be very loud. If this is a laptop your probably SOL on finding a compatible replacement. If this is a desktop then just buy the same dimensions or just by the fan/heat sink combo's of the same size.
From looking up the fan in question I'd say this is a laptop and there isn't much you can do about it

My fan is not running


Which fan is not running? Case fan, CPU fan, PSU fan? CPU fans will cause the computer to shutdown automatically usually with in a few seconds of boot. If it isn't running at all, simply replace it. They are measured in milometers 40, 60 , 80, 90, 120 and some 200mm form factors. Just replace with the same size fan size and you should be up and running again.
