Question about Glastender Refrigerators

1 Answer

When first plugged in, with in 15 minutes it is getting cold, but the compressor gets VERY HOT. I ran it for a few hours, the fan never shut off, and it was hot as hell. It is in the open with no air flow restriction. I bought it used & was supposed to be in very good working condition.

Compressor shuting down


Either the thermostat is prematurely shutting down the compressor or the latter is overheating and the clixon is shutting it down.

The defrost timer also will shut down the compressor and all fans but that is only once every 10 hours or so to defrost unit. In about t10 15 minutes the timer will turn the compressor back on.

The beam in middle of refridgerator where both doors rest against while closed is too hot to touch


Is the cooling fan for the compressor working? There is a coil of the condenser line that runs around the freezer side. This will get hot but the cold freezer side keeps it form not getting too hot. It could get very warm if the freezer is not cold yet.

Condenser Fan Shuts off after 15-20min, Compressor continues to run but gets hot


Condenser fan motor or motor wiring is bad. That compressor should never run without the fan. Good luck.

My coleman mach air conditioner will blow cold air for around 4-5 hours then air is no longer cold? I could turn it off for a few hours and it will blow cold air again? what could be my problem?


sounds like the compressor is going in to overload this is a protection if it gets to hot make sure your condenser fan motor is working properly and that your condenser coil is clean I would rinse it out anyway to make sure. when you shut it down you are allowing the compressor time to cool down and it restarts but you have a high pressure head problem .

OVERHEATING COMPRESSOR


you can check its starting components. it could be a bad capacitor or a bad start relay. if the compressor starts from cold, it could start right away but as it heats up, it should be able to start also, since after running for a few hours, the compressor will really get hot, it would stop at defrost cycle and re start again after about 30 mins. since it is still hot, if it has a defective starting components, it can not start and that is the time it would overheat.

in any case that the starting components are all ok, then you have a partially burnt compressor. it would run while cold and can not run when hot because the resistance of the wires changes as it gets hot. with this kind of problem, you need to replace the compressor. as you have said, the fan at the condenser is running. if the fan at the condenser is not running, that is also a cause for the compressor to overheats. i hope i was able to help...

Compressor won't stay on...


My guess is that you have a problem with one of the following:

Start relay...this gives a quick shot to the compressor to start the cycle...if it doesn't shut it will go to overload. The capacitor in the start circuit which assists the start relay or the compressor itself. Best bet: get a service guy in.
