Question about True T-49 Side by Side Refrigerator Commercial

1 Answer

Cooling problem the fans are spinning, and the compressor at the bottem are running. the dial switch works (I think) because when I turn it to the "off" the fans turn off. We had a power outage last night. And this morning the fridge wasn't cooling. Maybe a power surge had something to do with it?

If your compressor is running and there is no indication of frosting on the evaporator (Cooling coil inside) you may have a problem with the refrigerant charge. Since these are sealed systems you may have to get a technician to tap into the system to check the pressure. If this is an older unit check the name place inside the left door and let the tech know the type of refrigerant the system has in it. such as R-12 prior to 1992 and R134A after 1992.

Will a evaporator fan not running in the freezer keep the compressor from coming on. I have a 9 cf. Refrigerator in my camper. But when I turned it on the fans not turning and the coils aren't cool....


does the fans have capacitors if u are having to manually spin them it sounds like the caps are faulty. as for the compressor that will still run even if the fans arnt working it sounds like you have a few issues with the fridge

Compressor works, cooling fan does not, fridge and freezer are correct temp.


Where exactly is this fan located? Are you saying that if you spin it it does start to run? For how long? Tx, Petra

Maytag fridge not cooling


If the ref or freezer is too warm and you turn the dial to make it colder the compressor should come on. If the ref or freezer is not cold like you say the compressor should be on all the time. You should hear it, but you can definitely feel it and it should be very warm after a short while.
If the compressor does not get warm unplug the ref with the compressor running and plug it back in immediately. A good compressor should not start up right away.
If it is running and not getting warm and does start right up after unplugging it and plugging it back in it is inefficient and not compressing the freon gas enough and therefore not cooling enough.
The fan in the freezer should be running as should the fan under the refrigerator.
The condenser should be warm and the fan should be blowing[drawing] air across it when the compressor is on.
You don\'t repair compressors and to recharge them correctly is expensive.

My Kenmore side by side refrigerator does not cool what do i to fix the problem


See if the fan is running inside. If not replace the evaporator fan. Check the lint/dust buildup under the ref. Clean if necessary. Also see if you ca find the defrost timer on it. (should be in the refrigerator side.)

Try to turn the little dial on it with a screwdriver and see if it comes out of the defrost cycle. if it does, it is a bad timer.

Is the coil freezing up in the freezer compartment? This could be caused by a bad timer or the defrost heater/terminator is bad..This will also cause the refigerator side not to cool.

Also, check and make sure the light turns off in the fridge side when the door is closed.Check by depressing the switch located somewhere close to where the door touches it.

if the compressor is running and not freezing, you may have a refrigerant leak. If not, then if the defrost timer is working, the door switch is good and fan runs, you may have a bad compressor.

Condenser fan is not running. coils are hot and the compressor sounds like its working. the evaporator fan is working. The refrigerator is not as cold as it should be


Spin the fan by hand and see if that helps. The condensor fan is causing head pressure to rise and the compressor is fighting it. This in turn will affect the cooling effiviency.Vacuum the cobwebs and dirt that has accumulated and vacumm the fan motor yhrough the vent holes on its end opposit the blades. Spin the fan blades with a pencil to protect your fingers. If the fan still won't turn, it may need to be replaced Good Luck_Ned_

The refrigerator and the frezzer stop working. I have power because the lights are working normally. Can i fix it.


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Subzero 590: freezer works, refrigerator not cooling


This is a Sub Zero and many technicians do not realize that these units most all run on 2 separate systems. 2 cold controls 2 compressors 2 evaporators. They share a condenser and condenser fan motor. What you are describing is most likely a bad cold control. It is pretty common for these to get some age and go bad. If you are very savvy with repairs yourself then if you access the compressor area and feel that the compressor on the right is cool and the compressor on the left is warm then you know that the ref. compressor has not been running. UNPLUG THE UNIT OR CUT THE BREAKER OFF. Remove the shelving from the fresh food section and the cover to the lights and the panel below the lights and lean the back panel forward to access the cold control. You will see 3 wires to the cold control. The green wire is the ground wire of corse. Unplug the other 2 wires remembering their location on the control unit. Take a jumper wire and jump these 2 wires. If when you power the unit up the right side compressor comes on then you know that your fresh food cold control is bad. Replace fresh food cold control.

Kenmore Refrgierator is not cooling enough


Is the frost on the entire surface of the evaporator or just a portion. If it is only frosting on a portion there is a possibility your system has developed a leak and has lost some of the charge. Or your compressor has lost its ability to pump the gas. A bad condenser fan motor overtaxes the compressor and can cause premature failure. If it is a bad compressor it may be time to replace the refrigerator. Replacing the compressor is an expensive job and the warranty is only one year on a replaced compressor.

Fresh Food & Freezer Warm


CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOU CAN HEAR YOUR EVAPORATOR FAN RUNNING (INSIDE MOTOR). IF IT IS NOT RUNNING ... AND YOUR COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING. THE MOTOR OR DEFROST TEMENATION SWICTH COULD BE DEFECTIVE. IF NOTHING IS RUNNING ... TRY TO LOCATE THE DEFROST TIMER(USUALLY LOCATED WHERE YOUR COLD CONTROLS ARE) YOU SHOULD SEE A SMALL HOLE WHERE YOU CAN MANUALLY TURN THE TIMER WITH A SCREW DRIVER.IT CAN ONLY TURN IN ONE DIRECTION. IF THE MOTOR IS RUNNING. CHECK TO SEE IF COMPRESSOR IN THE BACK IS RUNNING ... IF IT ISNT AND IS "HOT" (BE CAREFULL) SEE IF THE CONDENSER MOTOR NEAR THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING ... IF NOT ... THE COND. MOTOR IS BAD ... THAT MOTOR RUNS IF POWER IS GOING TO THE COMPRESSOR ALWAYS. IF COMPRESSOR IS HOT AND NOT RUNNING AND COND. FAN IS RUNNING .... UN PLUG FRIG AND WAIT TILL COMPRESSOR IS COOL TO THE TOUCH. THESE COMPRESSORS HAVE AN INTERNAL T-STAT THAT PROTECTS THE COMPRESSOR IF IT SHORT CYCLES.IT SOMETIMES GETS SO HOT IT DOES TAKE HOURS TO COOL OFF. THERE IS ALSO A DEFROST-TERMINATION SWITCH THAT CAN GO BAD. CONSULT A LICSESED FACTORY CERTIFIED COMPANY TO GIVE YOU A FIXED-PRICE DIAGNOSTIC TEST.
