Does confessor/compressor fan blow air onto compressor or suck hot air away from compressor?this is whirlpool refrigerator


Really, the fan has nothing to do with the compressor. The fan either pulls or blows air through the condenser coils. If the compressor is running, the fan should be working. If the refrigerator goes into defrost, nothing should be working under it.

Only the compressor is running but not the fan


if the fan next to the compressor is not working you need to replace it otherwise the compressor will get hot due to no cooling air above also make sure the condensing coil is also clean for proper circulation you should have your unit working if you follow this steps...good luck

My condenser fan runs and blows cool air but isnt cooling down the house. Any help.


Check the outdoor unit (condensing unit). Keep in mind, because the condenser fan is running it's not an indication that the compressor is working. On a split system,there's a dual capacitor that serves the fan and the compressor. The capacitor has three terminals.
1. common
2. fan = fan
3. Herm = compressor
This is a common problem; The outdoor fan (condenser fan) runs, but not the compressor (you have to know the sound of a running compressor or you'll mistake it for the sound of the fan) doesn't, because the compressor side of the capacitor is too weak to give it that needed phase angle that it requires to start. If you're referring to the outdoor fan spinning, but no cooling, I can bet the compressor isn't working and needs a new capacitor. Very common problem, I see it all the time. Before you change the capacitor, make sure that you cut the power to the unit, and then use an insulated tool such as a screwdriver and short the terminals together first. A capacitor holds a charge even after being de -energized.Buy the new one with the same exact rating written on it as the old one. Do not mix up the wires when replacing. Write it down or take a picture with your phone

My refrigertors stop working


First thing to do,is,see if the compressor is running,it should be humming,and warm to the touch.There should be a fan running under the unit,cooling the condenser.And the fan in the freezer unit should be running.If none of these are running,check to see if there is current in the wall plug,maybe plug it up to a known hot,receptacle.If the fan in the freezer is working,or the condenser fan,check the thermostat to see if it is working.If it is,take a 120 volt,volt meter,and check the voltage going in the compressor,if it is getting voltage,and is real hot to touch,then it is bad,the compressor,or if it s not running,then it is bad.If the compressor is running,and the large line off the compressor is cold,or near it,then it may be just low on freon.So many things to check here.

Maytag msd2652keu side by side compressor gets hot shuts off and unthaws freezer i unplug 4 a few hours plug in and works 4 a couple weeks any idea


Check to make sure condenser fan is working (this is the fan located near the compressor). It should be running at the same time the compressor is running. If it isn't, make sure there is power to it by testing with a voltmeter. If there is, replace the fan. If the condenser fan is working, clean the coils and check the evap fan.

Compressor and Compressor Fan Not Working


Rotate the dial on the defrost thermostat, a big click is when it goes into defrost, a little more and it should turn the compressor back on. By overload protector, do you mean the one under the compressor cover?
