Love this machine. Works great. Have had it for 6 years. Now it has a problem. The lights and fan work, and the temperature settings work. It behaves like either the freon is low (I don't hear the compressor starting), or whatever causes the compressor to start is crippled... Fuse looks good, nothing visibly burned on the motherboard, haven't opened the bottom.
good morning. according to mark rydal the director of dandy inc (publish ny times 22sept 208) there were faulty compressor electrodes fitted to the 283-3400 series yet there is no advice on the fix as a tech i beleve the cause is faulty sensors in the pcb but to date all the paper work i can find on these problems has the owners binning them after having them repaired as the fault re occurs over and over
This is a 6 or 8 bottle free-standing wine cooler from what I can tell.
I am not having much luck determining if this is a manual defrost type unit or not. Given the inital sales price now of $79.95 I have to assume it is a manual defrost type.
There are a few things that can cause your problem.
1. PTC relay and KliXon thermal overload assy on the compressor.
2. Run capacitor
3. Temp control
You said the fan does not run so I cab not rule out the temp control.
I can not even find a parts break down of the unit.
With no fan running the very first suspect is the temp control but you can at least listen for a CLICK when you cycle it from off to any other position. If you hear a click I would start looking at compressor start / run parts.
If you have access to your units compressor note the manufacturer, hp if stated (1/8hp etc) and Model number.
Then call or visit your local appliance parts supply store with that information in hand. The will have a PTC relay / KilXon thermal overload AND run capacitor that will fit your unit. I am pretty sure that will get you going again UNLESS you have a broken wire somewhere.
The replacement parts are going to run about 50% of the cost to replace the whole thing.
Hi, could be faulty thermostat, can you check compressor, is compressor running (working), listen to compressor for clicking sound, unplug it(switched off) for about 20 minutes, replug and let it run (work) for another 20 mins. see if temp. drops, what about temp. inside bottle (wine) cooler, is it 98 or colder, more info. could be valuable. check thermostat, check to see if compressor operates, if cooler temp. 98. remove you products, to another cooler, call mechanic.
It's the overload protector thats gone bad. Remove the plastic cover on the side of the compressor( LG model NS30LACG). The OLP is the one on top. If you open it up you will find that it may have some burn marks from electrical arcing. The part number is on the side (P6R8MC). Do a Google search for it. It costs about 12 bucks.
