Fan running at the compressor? Problem with the compressor start relay or compressor. Fan not running problem is in refrigerator. This problem will probably require a service call. Make sure the condensor is clean at the front of the unit where the grill is.

The frigerator & freezer are not cooling properly . i hear the compressor running . i have also diconnected cleanned inside and out but still the unit is not cooling properly . even on higest settings


If the compressor is running almost all the time (and the compressor sounds ok - no pinging/clunking),
then your side-by-side has developed a coolant leak.

When a system is low on coolant, the thermostat detects the warm condition of the refrigerator, and
runs the compresor motor in an attempt to cool off the refrigerator compartment, but if there's little
or no refrigerant in the system, the system's attempt to cool off the refregerator/freezer will fail,
with the symptom that the user wil hear the compressor motor running constantly.

Need info for a kenmore side by side refrigerator model#59652673202 it it not cooling nor freeszing ; the light works and the fan works but not cooling any side please help me


Good day,
With that amount of info it would be hard to try to pinpoint it. Here's a list of items that can cause a refrigerator to not cool.

Items that will cause a refrigerator not to cool.....
1. Defective thermostat
2. Defective freezer fan motor
3. Defective defrost timer
4. Defective defrost thermostat
5. Defective defrost main heater.
6. Defective condenser fan motor
6. Defective compressor overload protector
7. Defective compressor start relay
8. Defective compressor start/run capacitor (some models only)
9. Defective compressor
10. Restriction in refrigeration sealed system
11. Loss of refrigerant (leak)
12. Excessively dirty condenser
13. Broken wires, bad wire harness connectors, ect.
14. Defective fan motor switch (some models only)

As you can see it could be one of many,many items. If your handy with a meter you might want to start at the bottom back of the machine where the compressor is located.
Sounds as if it is not running, or running without refrigerant in the system.
Also, if it has a cooling fan motor in that area, make sure it runs, since all fan motors are wired to run at the same time.

Our Westinghouse Fridge has started making a chirping noise intermittantly


Good day,
That usually describes a fan motor in the freezer section starting to fail.
You access it by removing the rear panel in the freezer compartment to gain access to the motor.
Replacing the motor is pretty much a nuts and bolts operation.
Ordinary hand tools wil usually be all you need.
Although you can try to oil the motor, it rarely holds up for any length of time. I recommend a new motor.
The motor is popular, and available at any decent sized appliance parts house.
Take the model number of the machine with you when you make the purchase.
They won't know which motor you need. If you pull the motor first, and take it with you,that will accomplish the same thing.

Motor not running Refrigerator not cooling


There are three possibilities why the compressor motor is not running. #1. The thermostat switch is not closing to turn the motor on. #2. The compressor motor is bad. #3 The defrost timer is engaged, preventing the compressor motor from starting.

Solution for #1: Locate the thermostat switch behind the console in the refrigerator. It is attached to the freezer temperature adjusting knob. If you jump the switch out, the compressor motor should start. If it does, replace this switch.

Solution for #2: get another refrigerator. It is not worth repairing.

Solution for #3: Turn the freezer temperature switch to the coldest setting. Locate the defrost timer in the console on the ceiling of the refrigerator compartment. Look for position labels like "cool control" and "compressor". Jump between these two wires. The compressor should start. If it does, replace this module.

Refrigerator stops cooling but lights are on. When I pull the AC plug and plug it in again the Refrigerator starts cooling again.


See the overload relay beside the body of the motor compressor where the wires are connected, full it out and have it check, this is act like a sensor, when it sense too much heat it will automatically cur the power to the compressor which wil stop cooling, and when you unplug it or cool it down then it will de-activate the sensor.

try other overload relay see if the porblem still there

The fan went out on our Maytag refrigerator (LTF2112AR). It was rattling for a couple of days, then it stopped. The refrigerator and freezer are still cool, but not cold. Where should I start?


I would start at your fan. It could be the motor bearings went bad. Or your frost built up and stopped the fan. Without air flowing the refrigerator will not cool. So definitly start with the evap fan motor.
