    I read your solution. The compressor relay clicks but the compressor does not start. All fans are working. I can see no damaged parts? I do not know where the relay is?

  • mtrangaris Oct 13, 2010

    So, given the presenting problem, is the compreso]sor relay my likely problem. Everything else seems to work but the compressor that is warm does not start. The relay clicks. Could it be something else? If so what?

  • mtrangaris Oct 13, 2010

    So it would seem that I could take a chance on the relay and otherwise it is probably the compressor. The compressor is hot but not too hot to touch.

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm


How to check stuff>

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
If it's iced up really heavy you have an auto defrost problem. Melt the ice with a hairdryer and check the defrost system.

SOURCE: fan runs freezer and fridge don't cool

Please check the model number again, I can't locate that number. The number should be like for example 194.258978 Look at following areas for the model number

  • Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
  • On Plate Lower Front Or Rear Of Cabinet
  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet
  • Inside Liner At Top
  • I think your refrigerator has a defrost timer and this may be the problem, Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Top refrigerator not ccoling and bottom freezer

check the condenser temperature when the compressor is running by hand it must be warm or hot if it is not then that means no refrigerant left in the system.This can be a possible cause.

SOURCE: Refrigerator fan running not cooling

Good day,
That is the compressor not running. Could be a bad compressor, or one of it's starting components.
You can remove the start components from the compressor, by removing the cover, and pulling them off the compressor pins.
Any decent sized appliance parts house will test the components, usually made up of the overload protector, start relay, and on some models a start/run capacitor.
If any parts check bad, replace them, if they all check O.K. then you will need the services of a trained service tech.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

If the rear cooling coils are warm and the refrigerator is level and there is still no cooling, then you more then likely will need to replace your cooling unit. It takes a couple of hours to do but you dont need any specialized tools. Check out ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold Your unit can be found on ebay at under half the price of a new fridge.

I have cleaned the coils this morning, but the refrigerator section does not appear to cool. The freezer seems fine. This is model eti18PKXGWI ser no. 042 9086 eemingly c. 10 years old.


Your freezer fan has probably quit. On most refrigerators the freezer is the only compartment actually cooled by the compressor and coils. The refrigerator compartment is feed cold air from the freezer compartment by way of a small fan. If you have you refrigerator turned all the way up and the door open you should here the fan running and be able to feel air moving somewere in the refrigerator compartment.

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

LG refrigerator not working


Check and clean the condenser. Unplugging the system allows it to cool off. when you plug it back in it will cool until the heat rebuilds if not rejected through the condenser. Make sure the condenser fan comes on when the compressor runs. A faulty fan motor will cause the same type of problem.

Refrigerator stopped cooling


The most common problems for refers not cooling is a condenser fan motor (the one that cools the compressor) is out. This can be caused by either a mouse has tried to jump trough the fan and it came on or a loss of grease or oil. There is no way to oil them so they have to be replaced. That is the problem especially if you unplugged the refer and it worked for a while then quit. If the fan doesn't cool the compressor it will overheat and shut down coming on intermittently then shutting off again. As for the refer that still doesn't cool when everything else does you may have an burnt overload also. Check the compressor area for burnt or stalled components ex. fan motor, relay, overload. If your compressor is out plan on spending from $300.00 to $500.00. But check the suggested components first. And beware there are appliance shops out there that will find one of these problems and give you an estimate for a compressor. Find someone reputable.
