SOURCE: fan for amana fridge

Not sure of the description of the fault. If you are saying that the internal fan will not run but that you have put a power supply to it and it has run, it could be a number of possibilities... You described moving the cabinet. It is highly possible that a pipe or part of the refrigeration system has been damaged in the move and caused a loss of gas. If you remove the back panel to expose the evaporator (cold coil), and turn the system on, after 5 to 10 mins you should see a frost build up over the whole of the coil. If you dont then you probably have a leak. Result call a fridge guy. Leaks can vary in cost and is entirely dependent on where the leak is located and how long it takes to find it. If it does freeze the whole coil then you may well have a problem with the defrost heater or defrost thermostat. Both of which need to be intact in order to provide a neutral supply to the fan motor. You can (IF COMPETENT) check that you have resistance across both of these elements. If you have an open circuit on either then that is your problem. (PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT HAS TO BE BELOW 0'C IN ORDER TO HAVE ZERO RESISTANCE ACROSS IT...I.E. COIL COLD). Hope this is of some help.

hello sir 

you are right magnetron is fully interrupted....... but tell me  !. do you want to repair machine( 4 sec problem) 2. do you want to buy inverter , magnetron  please tell i am ready to help you sir

I believe that is a microcomputer board failure. You will have to replace this board. Website below.

I have gotten parts from "repairclinic" on line and they worked fine. I saved $600 on the last repair of an oven. Good luck.

or sir you can find and fix each and every type of code error

SOURCE: Turn signals dont work headlights dont dim heater fan doesnt work

Did all these problems happen all at one time?? If so you may have a bad body ground. Try running a electrical wire from the (-) negative side of the battery to the body and see if this works. Be sure this wire is to a place with no paint as low voltage electricity will not flow through paint.
A). If not try replacing the turn signal flasher for the turn signal problem. This is usually the culprit and it's easiest and cheapest to replace. The turn signal flasher will be found under the driver side dash next to the hazard flasher. Turn the hazard flasher one to locate it. If you want try swapping the turn signal flasher with the hazard flasher to see if this fixes it. They are the same style flasher.
If this doesn't work you may a faulty turn signal switch or some wiring issues.
B). It could as simple as the head lights bulbs need to be replaced, it's rare but I have seen when both bulbs blew at or near the same time. If your able check the voltage at the head sockets.
C). Could be a bad blower motor or switch. I'm not sure if these models have a resistor block or not. The resister block controls the electrical current going to blower motor which controls the speed of the blower fan.

SOURCE: 1998 ford mustang radiator cooing fan wont come on

Check the fluid level in the radiator - after it cools down !

It sounds like you should replace the temperature sensor that controls the fan. This is usually located in the radiator and has electrical wires connected to it. Trace the wires from the radiator fan ( not the air conditioner fan!) to the sensor.

If the radiator is aluminum you may need special anti-freeze to prevent damage.

My fridge compressor is not running. I removed the thermal cutout and relay to replace. The parts list shows a capacitor which my fridge doesn't have. Is this required for my model? WSE6070SB model no

the start /run capacitor is required to jolt start the compressor with an over voltage and then to keep it running
fridge capacitors are generally flat squarish and yellow in color about 1/2 the size of a match box
get in a fridge technician to properly diagnose the fault and save money

Hi I have a Westinghouse 614 fridge/freezer compressor is not working and l found that starter relay was faulty changed it but still no go. there are two wires one blue and one white l believe blue was...

I believe the actual colors should be re for run windings and white for start capcitor and green or brown or black for ground.

AT TIMES YOU MAY HEAR THE COMPRESSOR CLICK OFF AND ON OVER AND OVER. Signs of a bad start relay or capacitor. Check with an OHMS meter for continuity (ohms) and voltage, capacitor can be checked for Microfares.
To check ur compressor with multi meter:
Disconnect and remove the relay and capacitor from compressor, somes located next to compressor in a casing.

You wills see 3 prongs coming out of compressor. 1 goes to ur srtart winding, 1 goes to ur run winding and the center goes to ur ground.

Place ur meter connector or prong on the start prong and the other on the ground (center prong) take note of the reading in OHMS for example 5 ohms.
Next place meter prong on run prong and the center ground prong agin. Take note of the reading in OHMS. Example 4 ohms

Next place meter prong on the start prong and the other on the run prong, now take note of the reading example 9 ohms. Now match the total of this ohms test with the total of ur two separate test. 9 ohms, if they match ur ok give or take 5 percent plus or minus. One more test to make to test of there is a short in compressor attach meter prong to ground prong and rub the other end of meter prong to metal ( scrape the metal clean of paint and test on metal surface not painted surface. If it shows continuity or ohms , u have a short in ur compressor. It should show infinity

Freezers compresser will not kick on it trys reason:power outage tried un plugging all night still not working

Good day,
Good chance the compressor was damaged. First however, you can check the compressor starting components.
These components are clipped to the side of the compressor and are held on with a retainer clip.
First, unplug the machine, remove the retainer clip and pull the components off of the compressor.
The components are made up of the thermal overload protector, start relay and on most models a start run capacitor.
Take them to an appliance parts house. Most are more then willing to test them for you.
Take the complete model number with you.
If any test bad, replace. If they test O.K. then you will need the services of a qualified service tech to test the compressor.
If the parts test O.K. and the machine is under 5 years old, then call your dealer for a warranty service call, since the outage may or may not have been the cause of the problem. If it is a bad compressor, and no sign of storm damage is apparent, the warranty dealer would replace the compressor free of charge.

Will not cool, making a clicking sound, is this worth a service call? Whirlpool ed5fhexmq

Good day,
The clicking sound your hearing is the compressor trying to start and cannot, thus no cooling.
If you remove the back cover on the rear of the machine, you will uncover the compressor. It's the large round item with refrigerant lines welded to it.
On the side of the compressor is a cover plate that covers up the starting components of the compressor. The consist of the thermal overload protector, the start relay, either solid state and on some models a start/run capacitor. They are pressed onto 3 pins sticking out of the compressor.
You will need a VOM meter to continue testing.
With the components prying them off, set the VOM meter to Ohms. Test for continuity to all 3 terminal. If O.K. check each terminal to a clean bare area of one of tubes brazed into the compressor. The resistance reading should show zero ohms. Any reading means one or more of the windings is grounded, and the compressor is bad.
If everything test good to this point, you can take the start components to any decent sized appliance parts house. They will be glad to test them for you. Replace any testing bad.
If they all test O.K., then the problem still lies within the compressor and you will need the service of a qualified tech.

Freezer defrosted and the fridge isn't as cold

Good day,
The clicking sound is the compressor trying to start and can't. Either the compressor is bad or one of start components pressed onto the pins of the compressor has failed.
There are 2 or 3 components that can be pried off the compressor and taken to an appliance parts house where they will be glad to test them for you.
The 3 components are the thermal overload protector, the start relay, and on some models a start/run capacitor.
If any check bad replace as needed. If they all test O.K. then there is an issue with the compressor which will require the attention of a professional.

Note: If the machine is under 5 years, leave it alone. Call for factory authorized service. The compressor has a 5 year warranty.

Kenmore Chest Freezer Model number 1987191852 has started to defrost own its own. Compressor starts and shuts down after appx 2 seconds. Has this unit reached the end? is it cost effective to repair?

Good day,
That short cycle you hear, is the compressor trying to start, and can't.
It is possible one of the start components has failed. Under a cover on the side of the compressor are either 3 or 2 components.
The start relay, the protective overload and on some models a start/run capacitor. These components can be removed by pulling them off of the pins of the compressor.
Most appliance parts houses will be glad to test them for you. Replace any that test bad.

If all test O.K. then it is an internal problem with the compressor itself, which would take the services of a trained tech and pretty pricey.

Refrigerator fan running not cooling

Good day,
That is the compressor not running. Could be a bad compressor, or one of it's starting components.
You can remove the start components from the compressor, by removing the cover, and pulling them off the compressor pins.
Any decent sized appliance parts house will test the components, usually made up of the overload protector, start relay, and on some models a start/run capacitor.
If any parts check bad, replace them, if they all check O.K. then you will need the services of a trained service tech.

Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer

Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep
