Hi,


Please check the bellow links to trouble shoot your problem. Since the compressor is running as you said but the unit is not getting cold then there must be something related to frost built up in evaporator coil or the evaporator fan is not working. There are many reasons that causes such problem to your unit. Kindly go through the links bellow to have a detailed idea:-

1998 GT22DKXGN00 refrigerator freezes, where is thermostat in refrigerator ? This is a Whirlpool


Check refrigerator and freezer temperature. If the freezer is above 0 degrees Fahrenheit it is likely the cooling capacity of the unit has reduced due to low charge or weak compressor. What usually happens is that the freezer is not able to reach the proper temperature and the unit runs continuously. The result is that the refrigerator via the freezer-refrigerator air flow connection freezes.

"This is not intuitive", but the logic is that from the compressor running continuously the freezing air that flows into the refrigerator side results in that the refrigerator will freeze,.

Check the temperatures. If the freezer is above 10 degrees F it is almost certianty the cooling capacity has been reduced.

If equipped with an ice maker the output of the ice-maker will also reduce with this problem

It is possible to have the compressor replaced but not usually cost effective.

FR23SL Uses Peltier Cooling - No compressor nor freon....


Luzer - Thanks for the very helpful solution. My cooler has the problem described. When I take off the back and plug it back in, all three fans run, but the unit does not get cold. Is it possible that it needs new fans anyway (like maybe they are going but not moving enough air to generate the effect)? Or woudl it be something else?

Thanks!

Refer warming / no compressor / no fan


If the fan doesn't work , the compressor overheats and shut off by the overload protection.I would replace the fan which will cost no more than $30.

Will run and cool until the thermostat turns it off and will not start back up. Inside fan continues to run. Compressor is completely dead.


Dear jack289,
The thermostat is not working properly. When thermostat cutsoff the compressor Please turn the thermostat knob to higher setting if compressor starts working then please change the thermostat. The fan will run continuously since only the compressor is controlled by the themostat.

Thermostat ?


The Air conditioner are good only the adjustment of thermostat are the problem, select the thermostat in lower #3 you observe the thermostat will off in such time temperature reach to #3 If you full adjustment the compressor will not off.
In fan selector the compressor will autamatic off because no connection attached fan only .
