Cooler not getting cold


By not hearing anything but the fans I would have to say the compressor is not running. Pull the cover off so you can access the condenser area where the coil and compressor are located. Check the coil and ad make sure it is clean. Then feel the compressor and find out if the compressor is hot. If it is hot and the coil is dirty/dusty I would say it was going off on high head pressure/temperature. Clean the coil and let the unit sit off for a while and then try running it. If it is cool then it may have an issue with the refrigerant or other things like maybe start componenets.

My kenmore refrig. isnt getting cold? the fan works i think the compresser sounds like its working . wont get cold


Try cleaning the coils usually located at the rear of the unit. If the coils are not clean the compressor will not be able to work properly.

You have to replace the capacitor whenever you replace a compressor. You may have a bad fan motor as well usually when capacitors go bad the motor isnt far behind. This unit will have a dual capacitor for the fan and the compressor and yes one side can go bad and the other side be good. Replace the capacitor and let me know

I am a different person with the same problem the compressor kicks on ,the light is on but it doesnt get cold it does seem like the fan at the top isnt working the one in the middle is thank you


The compressor is running, that is a good sign. If you notice any cooling that is not a good sign. Even with the fan not running , the evaporator should have produce some cooling. Could it be that you are a condenser fan running? well, the compressor makes a distinct sound when it runs and you need to confirm that is running and not just the condenser fan.
Firstly- If you confirm that the condenser fan is running; that is, if there is one, that is good. Secondly- Check and confirm that the compressor is running Thirdly- If there is an evaporator fan inside the unit, check and confirm that is running.
If all checks okay and there is no cooling, the refrigerant might have escaped through a leak, and there will not be any cooling. You can extrapolate from my troubleshooting steps to diagnose the wine cooler problem.
Good luck

Compressor no longer coming on (Newair AD-40A)


You can take out the switch and do a continuity test on the switch in the on poisiton. You can do this witha VOC meter. and and if the switch has a High resistence then you can assume the switch is the problem and replace that. If the switch works out, it would be wise to assume the compressor has shot out.

Thanks for using Fixya.com!

I have a u-line bi-95 ice maker.the machine will only drop ice once after it is turned on. i also notice it gets very hot near the vent.the machine does get cold enough inside to keep the ice.what should i...


Your unit will only harvest when your thermostat is satisfied. If you have heavy frost you need to defrost the unit. If no frost then make sure the fan is running by the compressor. If the fan isnt running then the compressor is going off on overload. Or it could be the fan running but the compressor is not. If thats the case you will need a service tech.

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.

U-Line no longer cooling


This sounds like the thermostat is the problem. I wouldsuggest touching the compressor at the back of the unit to see if it is hot or cold. If it is hot then you have probably have power down to the compressor, if it is cold you could (if capable) bypass the thermostat to see if it kicks in. Hope this helps.
