My Kelvinator Opal Freezer is not getting cold, I think the compressor is not kicking in ?.


Probably the thermostat. You will need a multimeter to see if there is a circuit across the thermostat. There should be 2 wires and an earth to the thermostat. if you bridge the 2 wires together. (NOT the Earth or green wire) the thermostat will be bypassed. If the thermostat is faulty, the fridge will start but will not turn off when it reaches temperature. You will then need a new thermostat. Make sure its unplugged before you play around with it.

Freezer serial # 845440256 age?


Replacement thermostats depends on whether the fridge is a double door or single door model. You can buy this part from your appliance parts store/supplier.

Heat Pump - blows heat to set temp, then off, then kicks on to blow cold


Heat pumps defrost which is the AC mode, if the heat strip isnt working during a defrost, the air will be cold, A heat pump only feels warm if the heat strips are on too! the refrigeration cycles heat output is much less sensible to our 98F skin. heat pumps that satisfy a room setpoint are working at least, all heat pumps feel drafty to most.

I just moved into a house with a Gaggenau EB 846-6. Light and fan work. Heating element doesn't seem to work in top or bottom 'socket'. Also, neither heating indicator light illuminates


since neither light is going on, then i believe that you either have a bad thermostat, or possibly that you only have half of the voltage going to it, and gaggenau doesn't have gas units so it doesn't have a glow bar like the previous guy said.

Kelvinator 401 Impression series. Oldie but a goodie until I switched it off for 6 weeks while on holidays. Switched it back on and now fridge area freezing. Tried switching up overnight (8-10) hrs and...


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.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.
If this doesn't work Do this

That is probably the compressor relay or cold control (Thermostat
The relay is on the compressor and needs 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.

Hi - We've got a Turbo Air TGF-23F mrechandising freezer that freezes - down to -15 and then suddently begins to warm up about 1 degree per minute. In about 15 minutes its just over 0 degrees and...


Did they test the thermostat? I would think that the compressor would kick on before you got that much of a fluctuation, unless the thermostat is not sensing the change fast enough.

The run and start capactiors and relay, did they give you a reason for that? When the compressor kicks on does it surge the power? Light dim or something? It is hard to guess without being able to put an o'scope on your machine to be able to see what it is doing, but just based on what your write-up was, I can't see the parts you said they want to replace will fix the problem.

The beer froze in the chiller what could be the problem


The thermostat is stuck in the closed position if you noticed that the unit runs and runs and runs without cycling off sometimes. If it cycles, move the thermostat setting up in number (warmer). Make sure, if the unit is in your garage or otherwise not inside where it is warm, that the temp of the outside air isn't below freezing - coolers don't do warming and will not protect the beer from frigid atmospheric temps. Good luck.
