The fan should be running if the compressor is running.Check fan capacitor and check windings in fan.Check to see if fan is short to grond.If the fan is not running the compressor is no cooling off.

This sounds like it is caused by either a high pressure reset. Or the compressor is tripping a high temperature limit internally. One thing you may be able to do is to hose off the coil surface with a garden hose on the outside (condensing unit) this would allow the operating pressure to drop if it is dirty.

Hope this helps Ya

My magic chef model ctn1911gew is not working properly makes a clicking sound and is not cold at all and fan on bottom is not running. please help


Are we talking about the fan near the compressor? It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. It will click trying to turn on untill the over load gets hot Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is not running could itself be the problem. It is needed to keep the freon, and the compressor cooled.

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

My True TD 50 18 beer cooler does not cool beers


If you hear a clicking noise coming from the compressor there is about a 80% chance that the compressor is dead. But you'll have to call someone out to be sure.
If the fan motor behind the grill is running (condenser fan) then the compressor should be running and vice versa. If the compressor is hot as a pistol and clicking and the fan motor is not working then it may cool down if you shut it off and you might just have a bad fan motor. With power turned off the condenser fan motor should freely spin. Compressor have a 5 year warranty from the manufacture not including labor and additional materials. Hope this helps.

Refrigerator wont run. Clicking noise coming from main board preceded by a short humming noise every several seconds. Unplug for 30 minutes then plug back in and compressor starts up after several clicks...


Hello,
That condenser fan motor needs to be replaced. You and doing the right thing as far as using a seperate fan to keep compressor cool,buy replacing the fan the compressor will run cooler and click off by being too hot as you have heard/seen.

Find your model number and call your local appliance parts store and see if they have a CONDERSER FAN MOTOR in stock

Getting very hot in the middle betweenthe fridge and freezer


The condenser fan located on the bottom near the compressor is not circulating well enough to keep the compressor at a good operating temperature causing the compressor to shut down for longer periods of time until cool enough to run again. Clean the coils good and replace condenser fan and you will be fine. The fan works as a cooler for the compressor. Imagine working in the yard on a hot day wearing a mask over your nose and mouth. Your body shuts down quicker because you have to take more rest due to the restriction of fresh air. Same applies to the compressor. Hope this helps. Rick

Motor is hot?


Which motor is hot...compressor or fan?
Also need to know the model number.
Is this a 3-phase or single-phase unit?

Let's assume it is the compressor...Is it so hot that you can't touch it for more than a second or two? Is the compressor shutting down on internal thermal overload?

Compressor body hot can be caused by a number of things:
1. Low charge (the freon acts as a coolant for the compressor).
2. Electrical imbalance (3-phase only). (check line-to-line voltages)
3. Bearings in compressor failing (check amp draw).
4. Condenser dirty or airflow blocked in some way.
5. Condenser fan(s) not running or running backwards.
6. If water cooled condenser then water flow problem.

Hope this helps you get started.

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Compressor runs, overheats and shuts down..fan does not run...


I have had the same problem. Following the advice of someone on these pages I opened the machine up and checked the fan with a meter. On my model (the 404) it has two settings so two leads; one seemed okay, the other was dead. I checked the circuit where the fan connector plugs in and I got that both speed settings were supplying plenty of juice. Apparently the fan motor is dead. A replacement runs $79 at http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/. I ordered one; we'll see what happens.

Kenmore side by side compressor keeps getting hot


Your fan is stalling which in turn is over heating the compressor causing it to shut itself down. Replace the fan and make sure the coils under the fridge are clean. That should take care of the problem. Good luck
