Question about Whynter Tabletop Hot and Cold Water Dispenser Stainless Steel White Compact Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a cold water dispenser that cools good first time you turn it on, then after the water starts to worm and the compressor is supposed to operate again, the compressor operates for a second only and then shuts down, after few minutes the compressor starts but only for a second again and shuts down again I tried to fix it to my knowledge and then took it to a person who is supposed to be a professional, he claimed he replaced the thermostat, but the problem is still there Any Ideas? could this be a relay or something? Thanks

The cooling circuit is not working - check for a bad compressor or bad start relay/capacitor.

Samsung rs2630sh not cooling or freezing

If it has fan to deliver cold air, and it is not working, cold air is stuck on the begining. So your fan could be dead. And I suppose, that compressor is running all the time. Even compressor could stert freezing if fan does not deliver cold air in fridge. The other option is, that there is not enough gas in the compressor. In this case compressor vould not be freezing, but line, going out of compressor has to be hot, if it is not, there is no gas.

The water does not cool

the problem is in the compressor cooling unit, if you have no knowledge of electrical this is beyond your ability to service, it is of refrigerator technology, if so contact me and i will try to help you.

Water line for ice maker/cold water leaking underneath

Check your connection at the bottom of the freezer door, behind the kick plate. Also pull out your crisper drawers and check the cold water reservior. If this only leaks when the water dispenser is pressed I would try to track the line from the bottom of the freezer door back to where it goes into the refrigerator (behind the crispers) to the cold water reservior.
If you absolutely have to lay this fridge down lay it on it's BACK only. Also be sure to let it stand upright for at least a half an hour before you start it back up.
Good luck with this!!

Haier water dispenser WDQT015 cold water isn't cold

It's not condenser it is the compressor.
You may have a bad capicator or relay.
Try putting a HARD START KIT on the compressor and it should be fine

My refrigerator is humming rather than running as normal. The water dispenser is not working. Both problems showed up at the same time. Any ideas?

There are different types of humming. Pull the fridge out to allow access to the back where the compressor is. Look for a thin pipe on the compressor and feel if it is hot or cool(hot means you cant hold it for pong) If pipe is cool, your compressor is faulty and this needs to be replaced. At this stage the compressor itself should be excessively hot. This could explain the water dispenser not being cold. If it is actually not working, one needs to check the solenoid valves at the back: or possibly the water filter is blocked: or solenoid limit is faulty..

Not getting cool water from dispenser in door


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Water dispenser in my Maytag french door refer has suddenly stopped working. We use it every day and the filter seems to be fine. It almost sounds like it is frozen. Please Help!!!

We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.

Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.

I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.

Water is hot on both cold and hot side of my water cooler. water bottle on cooler is extreamly hot.

are you talking about a water cooler dispenser with hot and cold valve?

if you do, the cooling side is not functioning well.

is the compressor running? if not, check the thermostat.

if the compressor tries to start but can not. check the relay of the compressor, it may be bad.
if the relay is ok then the compressor is bad.

another thing to look at is the hot water thermostat. it may no longer functioning as to the cause of the bottle to be extremely hot.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Hot and cold water dispenser

Mine has started dripping from the cold water spout. GE says this is an unrepairable unit with no parts.
