Correct, condenser coils remove heat from the freezer compartment, thusly they will be hot. Sounds like the compressor is failing and that is probably giving off a squealing sound and stops running until it stops. Then your compressor will overheat and stop running until the thermal protector cools down and allows it to run again. Try replacing the compressor cooling fan.

Picked up used chest freezer...plugged in and briefly clicks...I can hear it energized for about 5 seconds then then repeats this cycle. It was on its side when delivered

Try to replace the compressor relay (most of the times problem) ,but if still doing the same clicking noise , the problem is in the compressor.

Acer Aspire 5520 will not boot


Constant power cycling is generally a sign of either bad voltage or overheating. In either case the failsafes in the laptop cause it to reset continually until the problem resolves itself in order to protect the computer from damage.

First thing to try would be to test the power supply with a voltmeter, if you look on the bottom of the adapter the output voltage will be listed as approx 19V. When you, or your tech, tests the voltage is should be within .25 of a volt of the listed output voltage or it is likely the problem. If it is well outside the listed voltage, have it replace and you should be ok.

Second, assuming the voltage is fine would be a heat issue, if one of your fans is dead or if one of the intercoolers isn't making good contact that would cause the unit to overheat and reset. Even an excess of dust in the unit can cause this although you usually see more than two seconds between resets.

To test for heat issues, remove the battery and AC adapter then blast it clean with a can or "Canned Air" or an air compressor with a step down nozzle limited to no more than 20lbs of pressure as more can damage components. When you hit the main fan with pressure it should spin freely and continue spinning for 4-7 seconds after you stop the pressure. If it doesn't spin or stops abruptly the fan is dead and needs replacing.

If these tests both pass but the unit continues reseting it's either an internal voltage problem or one of the intercoolers is loose, either way you should then take it to a pro for a full diagnostic and see what they can find.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

No heat , out door unit doesn't run?

turn fan switch at stat to on . does fan run? it should within 2 to 3 minutes if not sooner. if it does then you know you have low voltage and high voltage a blower and electronic brain . go outside and see of you hear a hum like a faint buzz. that is the contactor being closed and energized. check to see if outdoor disconnect has power ,usually 220 volts and then remove service panel and see if 220 volts arrives at contactor. see if spring loaded contactor points are pulled in and check to see if voltage is feeding through contactor . this will be hot! be sure you know how to use a meter and work live power. if contactor is not pulled in then you have a control voltage problem and you have to get 24 volts from stat to indoor blower to outdoor condensor. with and insulated screwdriver you can simply mash in on the contactor points and fan and compressor should run . only do this for a second or two, but it does simply say hey contactors open, ive got power and it will run but no controll volytage.IF ITS A RUUD OR A RHEEM SOME OF THEM HAVE A RESET BUTTON DOWN WHERE THE REF LINES GO IN . MASH IT IN AND IT MAY RESET, THEYTRIP OFF HIGH PRESSURE, DIRTY FILTER OR COIL IN HEAT OR A BAD FAN MOTOR OUTSIDE IN COOL.

Problem has returned to Maytag fridge

I note this is a very old post. The compressor is not starting and what you were hearing was the PTC relay energizing followed by the KilXon thermal overload kicking off the compressor start sequence. What happens is that the PTC relays sometimes get a heated contact. Due to the weakened state of the contact it can cause a buzz. Even with a goo PTC relay you would hear the compressor buzz if it was not starting. In that case the run capacitor may have failed or the compresor rotor is internally locked at which point the start cycle will repeat every 3 to 4 minutes as the thermal overload cycles and the compressor will not start.

Thanks for choosing FixYa
