Question about Refrigerators

Replace compressor Thanks for your reply, I have had two of the Sears kegs for several years. Now one is shot and the other works but has a noisy compressor. The compressor on the "broken " one is fine. I must admit that I broke the other one when clumsily deicing! However, I can solder and fix many things and years ago I serviced cryogenic systems so I am careful (usually) I need to know where I can find fittings (I assume that I must cut the compressor lines, resolder one and solder a fitting in the other to allow me to connect a charging unit. So if you can direct me to a knowledge base on the internet that would be fine Thanks

This type of work is normally performed by a certified technician. System refrigerant must be recovered prior to working on the system. After refrigerant is recovered from the system the lines can be removed from the compressor stub tubes by heating up to the flow point of the solder used. Number 15 silver solder has a flow point of 1385°F. Re-brazing the lines to the replacement compressor is best done after cleaning the line and using a small amount of flux. I use #45 silver solder to connect the lines to the compressors on a replacement. Flow point of #45 is 1185°F. The system filter/dryer should be replaced. After all connections are made a vacuum must be drawn on the system to remove air and none condensible gases and moisture. Refrigerant charge is critical on these system and should be weight in according the the amount stated on the name plate.

05 bmw 320i ac compressor no working


Check the refrigerant pressure. There is a low pressure switch that will prevent the compressor from running. If the pressure is OK, check to see if the clutch engages. If it appears to engage the clutch might be worn or worse. was the compressor noisy before it stopped working. If so then the clutch bearing might be shot. but in that case the compressor would still run but be noisy when not on. If noisy when on, then it is toast.

Need a manual for my air compressor #15310


Hi jhuson396,

Welcome to fixya!

You will need to supply more information, like the Brand name of your air compressor and a complete model number. I did a search and found that Sears carries several air compressors with that model number under the Craftsman name. Is this the correct brand? Also, Sears model numbers are in the sequence ***.xxxxxxx and so forth, always 3 numbers a dot and then the rest of the numbers.

Please reply back with that information and I'll be happy to assist you.

Thanks,

Handie Andie

Chirping sound for about 10 to 15 seconds each time the motor kicks on. Chirping seems to be increasing.


hello,
Is the chirping sound coming from freezer fan,the fan by the compressor,or is it from the compressor itself.
If it is from one of the two fan motors and not the compressor the bearing on the fan motor is noisy and that fan motor needs to be replaced
if it's from the actual compressor the compressor would need to replaced and that would be very costly while either of the two fans isnt to expensive
reply with which fan is noisy and i will tell you how to replace that by yourself

I have a side by side fridge freezer about 7 years old very noisy and will not get cold or freeze


If its not getting cold or freeze then this problem is related to weak compressor.The compressor is the part which controls the cooling of whole refrigerator.When the compressor gets weak,the cooling and freezing both will will get effected.The noise coming must be of compressor related parts,the relay the fan the motor.You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.

Is there anyway to bypass the a/c pulley when putting on a serpentine belt on a 1997 pontiac bonneville SE. Compressor is locked up and want to just bypass it.


I don't know of a practical way to get around this problem. If just the bearing inside of the clutch pulley is bad [which would first be noisy then might lock up and burn off the belt] then you may be able to have just that bearing replaced so your belt will work again. I've replaced several of these bearings over the years...they are pressed in place and do require a bit of skill and a good press to replace. Sometimes though the bearing will go bad and damaged the nose of the compressor badly enough that the only fix is to replace the compressor. The only real way to tell is to examine it all once the clutch pulley has been removed from the compressor. Hope this helps a bit!

Have not used the kegerator for several years. Plugged it in and it immediately started getting cold. Then I unplugged it to move it and when I plugged it back in it does not get cold.


Check to see if any of the compressor electrical items came loose when moving.
I had this happen to a customer and he called someone else in who tried to sell him a new compressor.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold


It can take a very long time to get a keg of beer down in temperature. The heat transfer from a keg is slow due to the lack of air circulation inside the keg. You should also check your condenser coils, make sure they are clean. Door gasket should also be in good repair. Hope this helps.
