Compressor not working after performing maintenance ( vacuuming out condensor coil/ fan/compressor compartment )


If you have a start relay , remove and shake - if you hear anything it is toast. with a cap either use a cap tester or just replace it and cross your fingers.

Compressor not working after performing maintenance ( vacuuming out condenser coil )


probably a coincidence that problem started after the maintenance unless you knocked a wire of a terminal
more likely a problem thermostat
could be a start run capacitor but if that was the case I would expect not to start again at all to many variables to chase so get in a technician to check it out

Upright Frigidaire freezer with warning buzzer on constantly


If your'e positive the temp is ok then your freezer cold control may be bad. Slowly turn it toward off. If the compressor doesn't cut off before it gets to off, the control is probably bad. Test it here>http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator, freezer doesn't work, refrigerator works


Unless specifically made for use in a garage most units won't work properly. The owners manual should say what the temp range for proper operation is (usually 55F is the low range). This is because the refrigerator section doesn't need to be "cooling" to maintain 37F if the temps on the outside are below 55F. These things are made to work in a 70F room and will not work properly if under 55F. Stupid thing thinks it's cold enough so it will never turn on, the refer section will stay cold/cool due to outside temps but since the compressor never runs the freezer will just be the same temp as the refer section (at best). Sorry, but in order for a freezer or refrigerator to work in an unheated space it must have the temp control device controling the freezer section NOT the fresh food section. In other words, that model will not work in a garage unless the temps are above 55F always.
