Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
I have 7 years old Kenmore Refrigerator Model 596.50392001. About 5 days back I felt door frame and magnet were extreemly hot which was due to bad condensor fan. I replaced the fan but now it's not cooling. Both compressor and condensor fan are running. However, I noticed that compressor is not making a loud sound. It does not even feel like it's running until you feel it with a hand. Freezer side is cooling and ice maker is working (about 2 to 4 cubes in an hour) but fridge is not cooling even dial is set to Coldest. Condensor coils is clean, I checked Evaporator fan and it's working. Evaporator coil has some frost build in to it. Do you think my compressor is about to die? or is there any leak?
Your help will be greatly appricated
Thank you in advance
Is the frost on the entire surface of the evaporator or just a portion. If it is only frosting on a portion there is a possibility your system has developed a leak and has lost some of the charge. Or your compressor has lost its ability to pump the gas. A bad condenser fan motor overtaxes the compressor and can cause premature failure. If it is a bad compressor it may be time to replace the refrigerator. Replacing the compressor is an expensive job and the warranty is only one year on a replaced compressor.
