Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

GDM12 reach-in just cycle clicks when plugged in - not cooling


Clicking like this is usually a problem with the compressor start device. They are prone to failing and the overload protector is cycling to hopefully protect the compressor from burning out. If the start device is a solid state device if you remove it from the compressor it should not rattle. If it does it is bad and will need to be replaced. Installing a new strat device should get it back up and running.

Im having a problem with the fridge not cooling. the ice box works just fine and i have the controls on max but its not cooling down


See if the compressor is running. its under the fridge and will be humming. If its running you fridge and the fan under the fridge is running also then your fridge is low on freon. If the fan is now running replace it. If the compressor is not running it could be the starter which is inside the plastic cap on the compressor. It is a nickel size part connected to one of the 3 prongs on the compressor. It also could be the timer. The timer is a device that turns to fridge defrost. It is located behind the plastic in the top,back of the ref side of the fridge or behind the back in the freezer or under the front bottom underneath the fridge. it will have a slot near its center that a flat blade screwdriver can fit in turn it slowly and you will hear audible clicks the compressor should kick on if not its not the timer. good luck

Refrigerator burning rubber smell when it tries to turn on


sounds like the relay on the compressors is getting hot and cutting the unit out, if the fridge is quite old it may well be the run windings gone short circuit in the compressor pot. The relay switches from start to run windings so may be firing the start circuit, switching over to a shorted run winding, and then getting hot and activating the thermal cutout and hence the burnig smell, plus the start and rapid shut down of the compressor.
