Hi,
Is condenser fan working??? is the compressor starting on the first try???



Many times a 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...

It does sound like a bad fan motor. With the compressor getting hot you may need to change the start relay, overload and run capacitor if it continues to run like this with a defective fan motor. What is the correct model number? Sea Breeze

Kitchen aid super ba refrigerator with top freezer ice maker stopped working


Need to know if there is power to the unit, If yes then the controller section must be checked for switch on. If there is power to the motor without it running then the compressor motor is a suspect.
Please fill in with details of your observation

FREEZER WORKS, REFRIGERATOR DOES'T


There is one compressor that serves both the freezer and refridgerator compartments. You need to confirm if the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment is working. When you open the door to the freezer, you should see and hear the evaporator fan in the freezer compartment running. Particularly if there is a demand on the unit through the thermostat setting. If the evaporator fan is not operating, you can check the evaporator fan motor with a volt meter to see if it's getting power. If its getting voltage, but not operating, you need to replace the evaporator fan motor in the freezer compartment. There are 3 wires that attach to the evaporator fan motor. One hot wire, one neutral wire and one ground wire. The ground wire is usually marked green, the voltage wire is usually marked black and the common wire is usually marked white. You should get a reading on your volt meter of a voltage from the hot post to the neutral or from the hot to the ground. If it is getting power but will not operate, then it is definitely a bad fan motor that would need to be replaced.

The outer jam of the freezer part of the refrigerator gets hot super hot why ?


you have the power adjust, summer controls, whatever its called for your model, and manufacture
but its normal, this is the YODA LOOP
or the MULLIAN htr.....
it is very normal for it to be hot to the touch, this is actually the heat that is being withdrawn from your box, in the older models, unless the paint is flaking i would not be overly concerned

Freezer smells hot and sides are hot


Check behind freezer , to make sure the fan which cools the compressor , is working . If not , replace the fan motor , or , something may be blocking the fan blade ( paper , plastic , etc ) .

Sides of freezer extremely hot


if there is air getting into the freezer because the door is not sealing properly the unit will run because it is sensing it is not cold enough inside. your unit releses the heat from the refrigerant through copper tubing that runs through the cabinet, and thats why it is hot. you need to level the unit make sure the door is sealing on the top bottom and both sides ansd then the freezer will work properly and be able to shut off after it has come down to the proper temp.
