Question about Refrigerators

2 Answers

While dispensing ice... Everything stopped. Lights went out, ice motor stopped and I am almost certain the compressor was running and it stopped as well. It was as though the plug had been pulled. It was not. The outlet is still live but the fridge appears dead.

Hi,

Does the refrigerator light turn on when you open the door? If so you have voltage at the outlet and to the refrigerator. You can troubleshoot by going to www.repairclinic.com and clicking on Repair Help at the top of the page. Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

The main control board needs to be checked.It may have gone short.The ice maker is also controlled by main control board.If in case the control board was weak and using the ice maker caused the control board go weak due to overload of power passing through it.Get it checked and replaced.

Ice and water dispensing problem; compressor shuts off when paddle pressed but dispensing is sporadic


could be the big motor that turns the ice in the bin when dispensing the ice. pull out the ice bin, check the big metal thing that turns when you press ice at the front dispenser. or you have a big chunk of ice that the motor can not turn.

Freezer and fridge tempeture increasing.


The black " tank " is the compressor . Will the fan by the compressor run ? If not , that is the problem ( fan motor ) . Are the coils clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc ? The brand and model number would have helped . Since the compressor is hot , means it should be good . The fan motor must be working , to help keep the compressor cool . Also , the back cardboard or metal panel must be in place when finished , or the fan will draw outside air instead of front air over the coils and compressor .

Water dispenser not working & fridge and freezer not getting cold


okay, most likely, your problem is your fan motor, its making your evaporator becoming a block of ice freezing your water lines but its not circulating the cold air through your refrigerator. remove the panel from inside the freezer and see if it has become a big white block of ice and the fan motor is turning. some fan motors will not work with the door open so you must manually press the light switch and see if the fan is blowing air.
if fan blades are not turning, replace the fan motor. but if it is blowing air and there's a big block of ice, unplug your fridge and let it thaw out. if after melting your fridge is running again, there's something wrong with your defrost system. that means check and replace your defrost heating element, defrost thermostat and or defrost timer.
i hope that helps with your problem. good luck!

Ice Maker Dispenser Motor Won't Stop Running


There is a plastic part in the dispenser that holds the micro switch that operates the auger motor when you push the paddle. If you're handy with hand tools, you can order the part and replace it yourself. The part is on the outside of the door.

Everything works motor just stop working. lights on,ice maker and water dispen, makes sound but no other sound. help!


Your refrigerator has a defrost timer and could be stuck in defrost. Go into the fresh food compartment and were the controls are should be small hole to stick a pencil eraser in. Turn clockwise slowly until starts, if not we need to do something different. Sea Breeze

Motor stopped running but lights & ice maker OK


this is most likely a bad condenser fan motor. pull refrig from wall remove compartment cover on rear and inspect the fan that cools the compressor. it is either jammed or seized up and needs replacing. while your at it you may want to clean the condenser coils as well they most likely have dust and lint build up on them. this motor is fairly easy to replace yourself if your mechanicaly inclined the part number should be 833697blade and can be purchased online, at a local appliance parts supply house, or thru a sears parts and servie center near you.
to keep the unit working until you get it repaired you can put a house fan blowing on the compressor area to keep it cool and this will get temps back to normal and cool down that center frame as well.

Ice Maker


PLEASE CLARIFY THE TERMS "MOTOR", "ICE MAKER SWITCH" AND "ICE TO COME OUT"

FAN MOTOR? COMPRESSOR? AUGER MOTOR?
ICE MAKER ON/OFF SWITCH? DISPENSE SWITCH? DOOR LIGHT SWITCH?
ICE TO COME OUT OF THE ICE MAKER? ICE TO COME OUT OF THE DISPENSER? ICE TO COME OUT OF BIN?
