REFRIGERATOR HAS STOPPED WORKING , NOTHING RUNS, NO LIGHTS NOTHING


If everything is dead the first thing you have to establish is that the unit is receiving electrical power. It is far fetched for every component to go bad at the same time!!!!!!

U line ice maker trips breaker


Something that powers up immediately, try any cooling fans or the solenoid. Easiest test is just disconnect anything non essential and turn on, if it doesnt trip, turn off, connect one thing and try againn. then connect one by one until it trips again and the last thing you plugged in will be faulty.

Freezer & fridge not cooling


If the fan inside freezer and outside and below refrigerator are continuing to run I want you to unplug and pull away from wall. Remove the cover on back near floor so you can reach in and feel the top of compressor. Is it warm, cool or too hot to keep your hand there? If too hot to keep hand on compressor that tells me the compressor is trying to start but cannot. This is not good to leave power on and not try and see if we can get the compressor going. The run capacitor is mounted adjacent to the compressor. It is electrically connected to the compressor circuit to provide the required phase difference between the start and run windings for running the compressor. Capacitor Failures May Be Caused By 1. A Short Circuit - Will cause the start windings to be energized continuously in the start mode. The compressor could start, but the overload protector
will trip, and eventually trip continuously.. Here is a photo showing the=> MSD2756GEW Compressor Components See part 4 in the photo that is the=> 12002784 Relay and Overload Kit I could write all night but if you can get these things checked we will find the reason for the refrigerator not cooling and most likely that set of parts is the reason. I will be here to assist you, Thanks Sea Breeze

Refrigerator cools as normal. Trips 15 AMP circuit breaker.


a full size refrige has to be on a 20 amp circuit, a 15 amp is just not big enough.. you should also know that this circuit has to be on a 12-2 gauge wire.. I also highly recommend installing a 20 amp HD receptacle
