The actual age of your unit can be determined by the serial number. Based on the age indicated there they can tell you if the warranty is still valid. Your local Rheem/weather king dealer can do this for you. Most compressor warranties are either 5 or 10 years. Good Luck!

Refrig won't cool on either freezer or refrig side. Confirmed manual settings & allowed 24 hrs for cooling. Is there a reset switch somewhere other than manual switches inside refrig?


check that the compressor is working by feeling for motor vibrations at the compressor, hot compressor unit or hot fins or back wall of the fridge
if there is not heat then the compressor is not working
call a technician as it could be a start/run capacitor failed or compressor seized
get a quote as some compressor replacements cost as much as a new fridge
check that the utility power is getting to the fridge/freezer

I have 2.5 Goodman heat pump, 3 yrs old, the sucsion pressure is 90 PSI, the discharge pressure is 180 psi. I am told the I have a bad compressor valve. Please, tell me how can I fix a bad compressor...


The piston is too large. Have a reputable heating and air technician install the proper size piston and this will correct the problem. Cost should be 150.00.

Have a Kenmore side by side that is not cooling any more. 5 yrs old. sounds like the compressor is trying to kick in, but doesn't tries again every minute or so. Any suggestions?


Good day,
Yes, You have a 5 year warranty on the compressor.
If you are right there, I would call the selling dealer and see what they can do for you. They have a little wiggle room so it's worth the effort.
Your compressor cannot start. There are start components on the body of the compressor that could have failed, or the compressor itself could have itself failed.
You can remove the start components off the body of the compressor and take them to an appliance parts house for testing. Under the cover on the side of the compressor, is a relay, overload protector, and on some models a run capacitor.

The components could have failed on their own, or burned out because the compressor grounded out.
It is safer to have a trained tech check the machine.
He has a starting device that can run the compressor independent of the unit, and see if it warrants replacing start components.

Worth fixing 9 yr old unit? Told the keypad going bad. Often powered off/on to reset is required. Expensive repair?Complicated? I am quite handy if part swap is an option. I recall hearing a microwave is...


Hi - I really do not like to condemn any machine however microwaves have become very inexpensive - more efficient - quieter and packed with more features than ever before for a reasonable price. If you are handy unplug the unit and remove the front panel (a few screws ) at the keypad to expose the keypad harness, please check the harness connection. It is not uncommon for a keypad to fail. If the keypad still fails I advise purchasing a new machine simply because the parts, shipping etc will likely exceed the pro rated value of your machine. I know it is hard to let go sometimes but in the case of old microwaves it is generally wise. Microwaves can last well over 10 years. The good news is you will be getting a warranty with your new one should you decide to go in that direction. Hope its the harness, Sincerely Brian

Blower no cool


Chances are the tech said it was a "capacitor".
That is one of the few (and minor) parts that routinely go bad and would be no suprise with a 17 month old unit. Nearby lightening strikes or power surges can cause them to fail. That is true with all brands.

(the condensor is the entire outdoor unit)

Goodman systems typically come with a 1 year all parts warranty, and a 10 year compressor warranty.

Since your unit is 17 years old the capacitor is not under warranty. (unless you purchased an extended warranty plan of some kind.)

$90 is reasonable compared to the typical going rate for a capacitor replacement and service call.

Flashing display and ticking coming from the back


The clicking noise you hear is the compressor trying to start but the overload is tripping that is hooked to the compressor. Either you have a bad start relay which I would replace first or your compressor is locked up. If the unit is under five yrs old but older than January 08 then the compressor not the relay is under warranty. Jan 08 manufactorers have put a one yr warranty on compressors. Its real easy to replace the start components on the compressor. Unplug first then take back panel off. If the compressor is hot more than likely the compressor valves are bad and wont pump which overamps then trips overload. Then resets and tries again. But if compressor is cool then you should be able to replace start relay and compressor should start up. Those relays usually get too hot from dirty coils and/or a bad fan motor by the compressor that blows air across it to keep it cooler. But the cost of new fridges is an incentive to try the relay. Hope this helps.

I bought a Frigidare refrigerator today. Warranty needed?


its really just up to you. I am a service tech in grants pass oregon and i know compressors dont last anymore. Its because in the last 10 years they have switched from r12 freon to 134a. 134a has higher head pressures which make the compressor go out. If the compressor warranty isnt too much money i would do that warranty. You dont really need the others.

This sounds like the compressor is bad. The clicking sound is the start relay trying to start the compressor and cannot. You stated that it was only four years old. Check the warranty for your frig. Most carry a five year warranty on the compressor.

Be sure that the starting capacitor is good. If the compressor is stuck up the starter power pack may help but sometimes it fail.
