How did you transport refrigerator? Standing straight up, or laying on its side???

    It sounds like the compressor isnt running. Most common problem with the compressor not running is the relays (located on the side of the compressor). You can buy relays cheap. (R041) is the type of relay you will need. If the relay doesnt get the compressor to work then you may have a bad compressor....(refrigerator would be junk in this case)....





    Note: Relays can be put on the compressor with a little common sense, BUT I do suggest having a professional do this for you! Always unplug refrigerator while messing with anything in the compressor department!



    If you insist on fixing this problem yourself... You can order this part at:

    After recieving the part feel free to write back if ya have trouble putting the relay on and I can reference you to a tech page,...



    Goodluck, Brian

How do I keep my refrig/freezer from defrosting in the winter when store in the garage.


There is only one source of cold in many refrigerators. If yours is a top freezer, then most likely it is in the freezer.
But the thermostat that you set temperature with is in the refrigerator, not the freezer.
In the cold garages, what can happen is that the refrigerator stays cold enough that it does not call for cold. So the freezer does not get enough cold.
The freezer control works by diverting cold air into the freezer WHEN THE RERIGERATOR HAS TURNED ON THE COOLING. If it is not turned on, oh well.
The best you can do for this is to put both on max cold. Then the refrigerator will call for more cold at a lower temperature, and the freezer will get it more often and will divert more when it is cooling.
This can result in the refrigerator freezing things too. You can try raising the refrigerator setting JUST A LITTLE and see if both work, but keep freezer on max cool.
This works for my situation, but ambient temperature fluctuations in the garage make this dicey. We don't put things like lettuce in the refrigerator in the garage in the winter because freezing damages them.
Good Luck

Refrigerator light is on but it's not getting cold


Yes, I can help you. (If you like).But you will need to answer a few questions. For example was the freezer and refrigerator doors left closed for all that time with out allowing the moisture inside to escape and not cause the controls to rust or short out. Let me know and rate me if I am helpful, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator/Freezer not getting cold


Is the fan on the condenser coils spinning? (back side of unit behind the bottom access panel.)

If it is not, the heat extracted from the fresh food/freezer compartments is not being sufficiently dissipated.

As a short-term fix, you can aim a box fan (a regular ol' room/window fan) at the condenser coils.
