I have read many complaint that are specific to this issue. It may just be a characteristic of this unit. If it were me. I would read the directions carefully to make sure that I had done everything correctly. If it still was not satisfactory, I would take it back to the seller and replace it for a new or different one.

Model 106.74052400 is not cold don't sound like


Are you talking about the interior fan unit?
If so, with it turned on try giving it a light tap with something hard.
If it turns on, then the fan motor is worn and requires replacement.
If it doesn't kick in, then check the power to the fan.
If you don't have power, then check the blower control switch.

2004 mazda mpv engine racing and cooling fan not working


coolant temp sensor tells the computer how hot or cold the engine is so it can regulate the idle and fuel mixture, when it fails there usually is no cooling fan and you will have trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

Problem with GE Refrigerator (GTS18SHSVRSS) -- Doesn't run. Power seems to be getting in (inside lights turn on and we can hear a faint humming sound), but the fan/condenser doesn't seem to be...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

My freezer gets cold on the bottom but does not freeze anything. I never hear the fan come on. I replaced the thermostate but still the same. What part should I try next. I have model FFU14FC4CW1


Hello,

If the compressor comes on the thermostat is good, what you need to check is for power to the fan in the freezer, if power present at fan but it doesn't run the fan motor is bad.

Refrigerator side is barely cool. Defrost light on for over a week, but unit is self defrosting??? why is ref section cooler not performing?


you have a defrost problem?all a fridge does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge section,when you open the freezer door you should hear the fan blowing,under the fan there's the evap coil,this is what makes everything cold,if it doesn't defrost it gets covered with ice and then you have problems or on some models there's a damper and the door doesn't open stopping the cold air from blowing into the fridge section.you'll need a meter,pull out all the food in freezer,remove all shelves and then remove the inside back wall of the freezer.with a hair dryer melt out all the ice,then find the bad part,defrost thermostat,defrost heater,bad timer or board depending on the modelwith the meter you can check the parts.also if you look down at the bottom kickplate,pull the kickplate off and look for a tech sheet,it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost,also next time send the model number so i can see what model you have,if you have a timer advance it and see if the heater comes on,also it doesn't hurt to change out the thermostat while you're in there and alot of times this is the problem,you can cut the two wires going to the thermostat located on top of the evap coil,connect them bypassing the thermostat,put the fridge into defrost,listen for a crackling sound,if you hear this the heater is on and you'll know the thermostat is bad,call your parts store,give them the model number and they will sell you the correct thermostat,if the heater doesn't come on remove the heater on the bottom and read it out with the meter,if it's not a glass heater most likely the heater will be good but check it anyway with the meter.if that's good then most likely you'll have a board problem depending on the model.hope this helps and good luck.

Refrigerator does seem like its working right


Your refrigerator compressor is either pumping or it is not. Set the refrigerator to low temperature, pull it out and listen for a while to see it the compressor is coming on. If it is coming on then there may be a freon leak or the internal coils may be iced up. If it is not coming on, then either there is no power to the coompressor, or the compressor itself is defective. Use a voltmeter at the compressor to check for voltage. There is also an add on device to start stuck compressors from your local HIVAC jobber store.
