Question about Whirlpool ED0GTQXMQ Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a side by side whirlpool refigerator that is approx 11 years old... during a recent power outage we used a generator to run the refigerator. Since then the refigerator has been running intermittently. The light still works. I seem to able to start up the unit by adjusting the temerature setting colder. After several days it will quit again. Any ideas???

Generac 20,000kW Standby generator doesn't start shows message STOP ALARM OVERCRANKED

Overcrank means that it tried to start and couldn't. It will go through 5 crank cycles and then stop with this alarm. Switch to off, hit enter to clear fault and then try to start in manual. Check to make sure you have fuel and pressure is 11 to 14 in WC.

I have a 5.5 Vertical Briggs and Stratton about 6 years old that is mounted on a woodsplitter. This year it started dieing under load. It's driving a brand new 2 stage 11 gallon pump because I thought that...

If the generator was used during these 6 years continuously on full or near full load, it may have loosed compression (and derated load).

If you can measure the pump current and compare with the rated of the generator it should be less than the half of the rated to run properly in continuous mode. If it is greater than 75% it may be more than the possible for this generator.

Nevertheless the new fine oil, the overheating or lowering of the oil level during operation may be the reason for stopping.

I have a 4000 watt coleman powermate that is fifteen years old and approx 200 hrs on it. Had it running during a blizzard and the motor pulled down and now only puts out half power.Could swirling snow have...

Yes, swirling snow could have done some damage. Any snow that may have gotten inside had enough heat to melt it but not evaporate it. It would be overly difficult to try and explain how to take it apart over the internet. I would suggest taking it to a small engine repair shop. Is it running at full rpm with half the power or running at half the rpm at half power?

threre may be something shorted inside of the refrigeratoer because the gfci is tripping out. and or when the compressor tries to come on the start components are weak and it draws too much amperage. Either way you are going to have to call a serveice professional. Thanks For using Fixya. and Merry Xmas!!!
