Hi,
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...

Why is my sub zero fridge model 590 warming up?


Hi fridges will warm up on the outside as they remove heat from the inside. excessive heat with not extreme cooling inside the fridge indicates a possible degridation of coolant fluid or a leak. as the motor tries to cool the fridge the thermostat inside stays on as the tempreture inside has not been reached. if you hear the motor/ pump continually running this will indicate a cooling problem.

Both sides are warmer than should be. motor running nonstop


You refrigerator needs regassing that is why things are not cooling. Your sides of fridge are hot because the motor keeps running to keep what gas is there flowing though the lines trying to cool fridge

Door alarm on and not cooling


If its the door alarm specifically, and not a temp alarm, assuming the door is closed of course check a couple of things. When you say its not cooling, is it not cooling in both sides, one side, part of either or both sides - i.e. top is warm and bottom is cold? My first door alarm thought was its possible door switch is bad, causing both light to stay on and alarm to think door is open. Is it especially warm or hot near a bulb in either side? If its warm at top, I would look into your evaporator fan motor operation, If its not cold on one side and cold on other, that could be several things, too many to list without specific temps.

Motor runs for a few seconds than cuts out. No cooling


The startup capacitor is weak and that makes the overload switch kick in. You can get a 1/4 hp to 1/3 hp 3 in 1 hard start relay to fix that from graingers, or 1stsourceparts. EZ instructions.

My cda554 beko refrigerator not cooling


hello there.........is the refrigerator motor running...(not the fan)...if this is running...pull the fridge out for access.....check the smallest diameter pipe on the compressor for heat.(not the small charging stub which goes nowhere)...in normal operation this small pipe should be quite warm to hot.....if its not it is possibly due to an internal gas leak....fridge motor will run but not cool the fridge.....if the motor isnt running but the internal fridge light is on when you oen the door it is possible the thermostat (temp control) needs replacing

New fridge will not cool or freeze


By motor do you mean fan or your compressor is running if your compressor is running but it is not getting warm to the touch then you have no refrigarant in the system

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.
