    The compressor was hot. The unit was at room temperature. I have emptied the refer and freezer I unplugged the unit to keep from burning up my compressor.

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    The compressor was hot. I cleaned the coils and tossed out all of the food because the inside temperature was about 75 degrees. I don't know what a condenser is.

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    OK then what card should I change out? Curcuit board ps2327740 or Electronic control ps557945? Or maybe you have a favorite.

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    I agree. You are the expert that I am asking and hired for $12.00. So maybe I can purchase both cards and try them one at a time to see if they fix my problem. I could have done that myself without your advice.

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    So here we are. What I need is an expert to help me find the correct computer card to fix my fridge. The last guy recommended that I ask a professional.

    Hi Woodchuck! I just got back with some order out chinese and will get on this as soon as I have eaten. So I should unplug and give it a shake to see if it rattles?

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    Also compressor sounds like it is running.

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    Got the back off the starter is on there with a twist tie! I will cut and unplug.

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    OK Woodchuck. I got it off and it rattles like it has small stones in it. With your OK I will order this part ASAP. Please advise your soonest. Also how will I know where to put red,white, blue wires when new unit arrives. I have old unit marked; B W R but the drawing that you showed me says that part may not appear as showen because of changes.

  • nugent993 Sep 13, 2010

    Also do I need to buy both the starter and the overload? I have the starter in my hand and it does rattle.

  • nugent993 Sep 14, 2010

    Have not heard from Woodchuck in over an hour. So, I guess Woodchuck died. May he rest in peace. Anyway what I need to know is; Should I order both the starting device and the overload or can I get away with just a starting device?

  • nugent993 Sep 14, 2010

    i am working with a ksrg22fkss03. The fan is working and I used a back pack blower to remove dust from coils. They are clean. I ordered a starting device yesterday and wonder if I need an overload aswell.

As you mentioned the compressor is running and even getting hot.And also rattling noise from the starter,this indicates problem with starter.But if the old starter is got burned out,then its due to faulty overload too.In this case both has to be ordered.So check the starter condition.If its got burned out or burn marks then overload too has to be ordered.Before ordering parts.If you require total parts disassembly diagram for your refrigerator then ,please click on this link.It will help you to disassemble your unit. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kitchenaid-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-ksrg22fkss03/0593/0165000?pathTaken=

    the overload protection device is to prevent damage to the compressor in case it overheats, like a self resettable breaker switch, it would not hurt to replace it

  • Rene J Solis Sep 14, 2010

    About the starter, even if it looks different, it should be marked where each wire plugs into.

  • nugent993 Sep 14, 2010

    Starter should be here tomorrow. I will look around for a overload protection switch locally.
    I think that we have done all we can do for now. Thank you.

That click is probably the starter/overload relay which starts the compressor. It overloads and cools off and tries again. It's probably burnt.if it rattles when you shake it is bad. Look behind the cardboard cover behind the unit and listen for the noise to locate it.
Part 13 and 16 on this diagram shows your starter and overload.

Can you give some details like, is the compressor hot, very hot cold, how is condenser also, how much is the temprature in the fridge and how much in freezer

    You have act well by switch it off to protect the compressor. However if as you have mention the freon gas is ok then you have electronic control panel fault

  • espressonist
    espressonist Sep 13, 2010

    As you may already understand your problem is not something simple so we can clearly specify which exactly the problematic part and especialy with electronics since it sound that you fridge act like crazy.

    There best procedure is to have the replacement parts use them and see the reaction of the fridge this will save a lot of time and it can make an accurate diagnosis and fix it at the same time.

    So we don’t think that to order yourself the parts and try them out since this will be very expensive but to ask the support from a professional that they will only charge you only with the part that is finally faulty.

Whilepool model gs6shamb00, Why a few second after the compressor shut off, the compressor knock loudly? The evap coil also shakes for 30 seconds to 1 minute. charlie T


I had accidentally overcharged a unit with freon one time (r410a freon), and when the unit stopped, the compressors rotor would spin backwards and make a loud "knocking" noise. This was on a scroll compressor, not a reciprocating compressor. Also, most compressors have a check valve, allowing freon to circulate in 1 direction only. And if it fails, when the compressor stops, the freon will rush opposite its normal direction of flow, and will sound off as a knocking noise(again, I've seen that on a scroll comp). That may make your indoor coil shake. I've seen/heard that make the copper lines shake but never the coil. Hope this helps! And FYI... Most ac service techs can check "superheat and subcool" as well as freon pressures. Without checking these 2 temperature measurements, we are just guessing as to how much freon is in the system. Make sure to ask politely beforehand for your service tech to do so PROPERLY when he checks the freon levels per factory specs, which should be on the units technical data located on the outdoor unit.

I have a samsung fridge/freezer. Production date 2007. Model#RS20NRSV5/XSA both the fridge an freezer not getting cold The lights are on but no cold air.An cant hear anything working at the back.


Your compressor is not working that's why its not cooling and you cant hear anything.
Possible cause:
  1. thermostat is set to off or defective
  2. defective capacitor that's why your compressor failed to run.
  3. defective compressor motor
  4. Freon leak or no freon at all.
Solution:
  1. check thermostat switch or relay
  2. check capacitor and wiring.
  3. check compressor motor.
  4. Check Freon pressures.

Fridge is getting cool but not cold and freezer isnt freezing and it has been re gased


Check the themostat. If you hear the compressor cutting out after running only a short while, that would be the problem. If the compressor runs constantly and the unit is not getting cold it is usually a gas problem, even though it has recently been re-gassed.

A/c runs cool for about 20 minutes and then does not cool anymore. keeps running but does not cool.


Is the compressor still running or has it kicked out? The normal problem is that the unit is low on freon and the compressor is not cooling because of this. If the compressor is kicking off an feels hot to the touch but the inside coil is sweating when the compressor kicked off the compressor is going bad. On an outside chance the thermostat can be going out if you turn it to off or all the way down you should hear an audible click and again when you turn it up normally its good if the click is audible. good luck

My a/c is blowing no cool air with freon added


you are supposed to hook up the guages then run the compressor, unless you have a different model than most. this method will give you the low pressure side reading as the compressor runs, this is the important one. as all systems are different there will be slightly different pressures at rest

Ur condenser won't stay on in the late afternoon. It works in the morning but in the heat of the day it only kicks on for about a minute then shuts off but the fan still blows. Do you think it's the...


Hi, its the condenser unit going off on high head pressure. As the outdoor temperature rises, so does the freon pressures also, which cause a very high load on your compressor. Pressure and temperature relationships are very important in the way your unit operates. To solve this problem, cut off power to the outdoor unit. Take your garden hose and give your wrap around coil a good washing of dirt and dust build up. This keeps the head pressure to a normal level so the compressor will not shut off on overload. Be careful not to bend the aluminum fins on the coil with to much pressure. This is also important so the fan can pull air through the coil and out the top to remove heat from indoors to cool your home. Yes, the fan will continue to run when this happens, and its job also is to keep the head pressure down to a minimum, so be sure it its running good and strong. This will take care of the problem unless you have a restriction internally, I don't believe that's the case, just a dirty plugged condenser coil. A tip for you to remember, when the outside air temperature rises, so does the freon pressures in any unit that runs on freon, your auto, refer, and so on, so if something like a coil that is plugged with dirt and will not let the fan pull air through it to keep it cool, it will shut the compressor off on its overload protector to keep it from burning out. A safety switch. Please let me know the outcome. Good Luck,

AC system, compressor not engaging.


Look at the front face of the compressor. Does the metal plate on the front of the pulley start and stop? If so, and you hear a lot of cycling (clicking on and off), you need to get your unit recharged. Good luck

Kenmore 795 refrig is not cooling sounds like everything is running but no cooling. took back panel off and hear a click then a electrical sound which goes for under a minute then shuts off


That indicates that the compressor is overloading the wiring. That clicking noise is the thermal breaker. The freon could be low. causing the compressor to overheat, or the compressor itself is deffective.

I have a GE REfridge that stopped running....


The compressor never runs out of freon - unless you have a leak somewhere, which is rare - and besides, your compressor motor would be still running but you would not get cooling - the most common problem associated with this is control board failure, so compressor does not start at all. Try unplugging the refrigerator for a few minutes and plug in again - see if this resets the control board - if problem persists or comes back you will need to call service and have them check the control board.

Before doing so, try unplugging and plugging back in after a few minutes, it might get things started again - if you have a manual knob for your cold control try setting the dial to off, then turn it back on all the way until you hear a "click" sound to confirm your thermostat is working properly - if you hear the clicking on the thermostat area, but compressor motor does not come on, call service.
