Just replaced the capacitor, and reconnected. Turned power on and heard a buzzing sound from the condensor, then the fan turned on. the unit only runs for a few minutes then shuts off


The buzz is the compressor failing to start.The blue or purple wire from the compressor goes to herm on the capacitor. If it's wired right and does not stare the compressor is bad.

Maytag refrigerator / freezer compressor fan not running and some items in freezer appear to be thawing


Check to see if the fan mount bent somehow. The fan blade just might be jammed. If not see if the fan is getting power. The unit will not cool properly if the compressor and condenser are not being cooled down by that fan.

Fridge is not cooling/freezing properly. have tried to clean vents and coil(floor level) by removing grill and using vacuum wand also cleaned some vent in rear. model #TFX24CR. It is still keeping...


Hello,
One additional thing to check is behind that rear vent behind that cardboard covering for the compressor. See if the fan motor next to the compressor is clean and the fan seems to running at a high speed. If that fan motor is running but doesnt seem to running as fast as say a table top fan would be running,go ahead and replace that fan motor.

We have model #57915.54. The fan and compressor run, but is blowing hot air. Is there freon for the unit? If so, I heard that there was a kit you could purchase to do it.


To get proper cool, keep the tips as follows:
1. Check air filter is cleaned. 2. Check indoor coil is cleaned. 3. Checkindoor blower motor is working. 4. Keep in cool mode. 5. Set temp minimum 3degrees less than room temp.6.Check compressor is working with correctpressure. If leak call repairman to rectify it.

Deart All: Thanks alot for your kind answer but do you had been ever heard about a maintenance guide or a fixing manual for the Hitachi RUA-30 AT3S package units . Actually the compressor did not worked...


Dear friend!
I think, you keep cool mode and temp setting above 30 degree C. Definately it will not work. If you need cool or heat follow this step and if still problem write there.

My Kenmore fridge is not cooling anymore and the freezer is not freezing also properly...everything else seems okay like the lights and I can hear the motor


your fans are running,but the compressor isn't,you need to replace the ptc overload relay on the compressor as this supplies start and run current for the compressor,it unplugs off the compressor body on the unit

I have a 33 gallon Craftsman compressor that won't start. It's plugged in. There's power, but the switch seems to be dead. I tried unplugging it and letting it cool but it won't start up again. Any ideas?


Idea 1: your breaker/fuse is tripped/blown in the electrical panel, reset/replace and check the compressor again.

Idea 2: you may have a bad electrical cord with a break in it going to the pressure switch.

Idea 3: The pressure switch isn't closing the contacts when pressure is low. (bad pressure switch)

Idea 4: Wiring from switch to motor has a break in it. (test the at the motor for proper voltage) If proper voltage:

Idea 5: Bad compressor motor.

GE side by side not cooling properly/outside surface hot


please check the condenser fan motor. it is probably not running or the condenser is very dirty.

remove the rear cover and it will show you the compressor and the condenser fan.
if the fan is not running, try to rotate it manually and feel if it is sticking .

if it is, it may just need the old wd 40 lubricant.

tnx 4 using fixya,
