This is beyond the simple fix for most do it yourselfers. It is probably too late to just add oil. If you have a copelamatic compressor that has an oil window, you should be able to see oil half way up the glass. If there is no oil visible, and oil has collected under the compressor, it has probably burned out the compressor. If you are kicking out a 20 amp breaker and it is the only appliance on this circuit, it is an indication that the motor is locked up.This will require a compressor replacement. Do not attempt to remove the compressor if you are not familiar with releasing the pressure on the refrigerant lines. Without gauges, and welding equipment as well as a supply of refrigerant, you won't be able to do it yourself.

Why does oil leak at the bottom of the Gibson refrigerator door


Hello Susan;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You do not have any oil in your system with the exception of a few ounces in the bottom of your compressor. This is not your problem.

You have a water leak. The water will run across the bottom coils and the floor. By the time it reaches the front of your unit it looks oily.

Pull you unit out. Make sure you raise the leveling screws in the front first.
Remove the lower back cover. There are a few screws holing it on.

1.) Inspect the drain pan. Is it leaking?

2.) Inspect the water shut off valve. Is it leaking.

3.) Inspect the plastic tubing to your water filter, ice maker and water dispenser. Plastic tubing will dry rot and crack over time due to the heat.

4.) Have someone press your water dispenser while you observe for leaks in the back.

My freezer has power, but the fans are not going on when the door shuts and the temperature is rising.


The defrost termination/ fan delay control is a temperature-activated, single pole-double throw switch. ).
The control is wired into the refrigeration circuit. The control is located high on the evaporator where the frost is likely to clear last. The function of this temperature-activated switch is to terminate defrost when the evaporator coil has been defrosted, and to delay the evaporator fans from coming on immediately after defrost.
The coil must reach a temperature of 25* F. for the fan delay to close allowing the fans to operate.bobicehouse_38.jpg

Its not freezing is there a switch on the compresser


There is no switch along the lines of like a button or light switch. There is a thermo switch that opens and closes from the temp. If the compressor is running then its either a blockage or or leak in freon. You could use an amp meter and check the draw. Look on the manufacture sticker for the running amps. If your getting much more the double then it blocked. If the compressor is running and your amps are below 1amp its a leak and needs to be addressed by someone EPA certified.
Good luck,
Shawn

Reaons for hussman freezer compressors failuer Model No:NLD 2


Normally compressors fail due to overheating. But just like any machine that may run 24 housr a day 7 days a week, the compressor may just wear out. Overheating is caused primarily by stopped up condenser coils. The condenser coil is the radiator like object that sits close to the compressor and dissapates heat created by the compressor. Also if the fan behind the condenser coil fails because of an obstruction or fan motor burnout the heat will not be dissapated properly. The compressor has protection built in that should shut it off during an overheating situation, but it can't protect it over a period of time where the compressor keeps trying to start and shuts down due to overheating. If you look at the condenser coil in many cases you will find dust and or grease build up so dense that no air flows through the coil. This is simply neglect or not knowing that the coil needs to be cleaned periodically. Also, if you have a refrigerant (freon) leak, your compressor will overheat. The cold returning freon helps to keep the internal components of the compressor cool as well as keeping the oil inside the compressor churning up onto the internal components. If you have a leak, it is not sufficient to just add freon every once in a while. Leaks need to be fixed by finding the leak and welding the leak shut. No refrigeration system should require "gassing up" other than the initial charge of refrigerant. Overheating can also be caused by a lack of air flow through the condenser coils because there is no space around the machine for air to flow into and out of the compressor compartment. If you have recently replace a compressor and it goes bad again, it may be burnout residue from the previous compressor that clogs the lines after a burnout. I hope this answers your question.

The freezer is not working is not cooling at all. The compressor seems to be running but it gets very hot really quickly.


There is a possible chance that your compressor unit is faulty. You could have a failed valve within the system, check for oil leak gas leak. if so you will need to refill oil/gas. However since you have not indicated the age of the freezer, if the unit is older than 6 years , I would recommend that a new compressor unit be fixed or you must consider after looking at the cost of this replacement for a new unit which would be more power efficient and carries along a warranty.
Hope this helps.Good day

Kenmore leaking oil


Hi!!

You have a Refrigerant Gas (Freon) leak. Oil travels with the Refrigerant Gas thru the system, that's why you see the oil on the drip pans, if you look closely you should be able to know where is coming from.

For what you are telling me, it seems that the leak is of considerable size, I recommend to ASAP take freezer to a Kenmore authorized service station for a repair estimate, then you can decide to fix it or get a new one. If you call a repair tech, he will charge for the house call regardles.

Good Luck

My haier 5.0 chest freezer model # hcm050eb has quit cooling. When I checked the compressor I hear it come on for about 3-5 seconds and then it shuts off for a minute before repeating this. I've unplugged...


your freezer is short cycling which is bad for the compressor. Usually there is an internal overload in the compressor that automatically resets as the compressor cools. Check to see that all of the coils are clean and the small fan is blowing. this will make sure that the airflow correct. look for signs of oil around the compressor, the coils, and any connecting tubing. if you find oil, this is a sign of refrigerant leaks. the refrigerant is what cools the compressor and it wont run long in an overheated condition. it will finally fail in the open position and not come back on.(compressor overload switch) If this is the case you may replace it cheaper

only reason refrigerent may be needed is that there is a leak so adding more will achieve nothing. unlikely to be needed. i assume compressor is running. probable causes of no cooling are compressor fault or a blockage in the pipe sysyem. not diy
