SOURCE: Motor runs continuosly, what is wrong? Fridge

Therostat is stuck and need to replace immidiatly since it will create much more serius problem like compresor burning.
Until you have someone check it out you need to manualy switch it off for half an ahour every six ours or one hour every eight hours so it make the compressor relax and at the same time to have a natural defrost.
Thermostat replacing is not very expensive however compressor replacement which means freon gas recharge and freon filter can go up to $350

Compressor running continuously. Hearing surging sound. Both fridge & freezer not cooling.


there may be a blockage in the evaporator tube in the fridge sections and the only way to establish what the fault is will be to have fridge technician run test on it

Fridge troubleshooting


The motor should not be running continuously. If it is, then it is because the internal temps are not going down low enough for the thermostat to shut the compressor down. If the temp is not low enough, the temperature of the coolant returning to the compressor is higher than what it should be and that the cool refrigerant returning to the compressor cools that motor down. If it does not, the motor will over heat and often shut down for cooling.

Ice buildup on the evaporator coils will cause a warmer running fridge. If the unit has a self defroster then it is not working and responsible for the anomaly.

THE FRIDGE SIDE DOES NOT GET COLD. THIS IS A SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE/FREEZER MODEL: RSH1DTMH



Shut offf power and then after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get help to test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is good the possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case you must take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
Also the blower fan must be checked to work continuosly , check if frost shuts off the fan.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

I have a Matsui MUL1107WW fridge and the motor appears to be cutting out when the fridge gets too cold. Is this normal ? or does the motor need looking at ?


The compressor motor only needs to run to cool the fridge down.
Once the fridge is cold enough the compressor motor will switch off.
The compressor will start again when the fridge warms up

Both fridge and freezer aren't getting cold enough in my Maytag Fridge


if they are both cold, but not cold enough, one of two likely scenarios, one minor, one major. the major one, you haev a sealed system leak of refrigerant, several hundred dollars to repair.

the minor, your condenser fan motor is not running, its job is to cool the compressor, if its not cooling the compressor, when the compressor gets too hot, it will shut itself down, while the fridge continues to run. when this happens, the unit seems fine first thing in the morning, but by evening it seems less fine...while everyone sleeping, doors have been closed, allowing unit to "catch up". replace fan motor.

Refridgerator not cold enough. freezer is fine but temperature in the fridge is way too warm


If the unit is running continuosly it is probably a shortage of refrigerant,As the last part to get cold with the flow of refrigerant is the fridge,And would need to be leak tested,leak repaired & New refrigerant put into unit. But if the unit is cycling eg running for say 20 to30 minutes and turning off and staying off for too long,It would be advisable to replace the thermostat.Hope this Helps.
