This kind of a problem could be caused by;
The system has a leak and is not reaching the shut off temperature of the thermostat.
The compressor is worn out and not pumping gas fast enough to reach shut off temperature.
Dirty condenser not allowing the system to get rid of the heat.

Runs almost continuously new condenser motors, new evaporator motors, new thermostat, condenser clean evaporator clean runs at least 30 minute off maybe 4 minutes holds -8 f unit is ten years old


the -8 f setting for a fridge is far too cold and the unit will be running all the time to keep up to the thermal loss through the insulation of the fridge
that setting is in fact -22 c which is the lowest temp for a freezer unit
fridges do not have to be set any lower than 5 c to keep all foods in safe condition
if you are having the problem on a freezer (omited information) and it is running all the time the fault will be in the cabinet insulation or the fact that it is an upright freezer that are very inefficient at the best of times.

My freezer has quit working....everything else is fine


Hi,

A chest freezer is great for storing additional food that may not fit in your fridge freezer. If your chest freezer stops working, it's important to be able to troubleshoot it quickly so that food waste is kept to a minimum. Keep the following tips in mind if your chest freezer stops working.
Check the Electricity
If your chest freezer doesn't seem to be working at all, check the outlet that the freezer is plugged into. Unplug the chest freezer from the wall and plug something else in such as a lamp or digital clock. If the new appliance doesn't work either, you know the problem is with your outlet and not your freezer. If the appliance does work, you will need to refer to other troubleshooting methods.
Inspect the Relay
The relay is a component that helps power the compressor. It is housed in a plastic box with the motor terminals and the overload protector and is connected to the Compressor; the relay is the largest component in the box. Closely inspect the relay and make sure it is not burned out. The relay can also be tested using a multimeter. If you see any signs that the relay has shorted out, you'll will need to replace it. If the relay makes a rattling sound when shaken, this is also a sign that it has shorted out.
Examine the Compressor
The compressor is essential to the performance of your chest freezer. It is the motor that powers the entire cooling system and if your freezer has ceased to work, you need to check it. This unit is located at the back of the freezer and sits in plastic housing; it can be identified by its football shape.
You can tell that the compressor is broken if your relay is fine or if you hear a light hum followed by a clicking sound and silence. If your freezer is relatively new, it might still be under warranty and you could get a replacement compressor for free. If not, your compressor will need to be replaced by a professional.
Investigate the Thermostat
The fact that your chest freezer is not working could be down to the thermostat. This is the unit that regulates the temperature inside the freezer. To test your thermostat, remove the access panel on the side of the freezer. Next, use a screwdriver to remove the actual thermostat from the inside wall but do not disconnect the tube that runs from the unit into the freezer.
Set the range scale on Rx1 on your multimeter to test for continuity. If your multi-tester reads continuity, your freezer problem lies in another spot. If your multi-tester does not read continuity, it means your thermostat is not working and you will need to replace it. Remove the tube from the old thermostat and attach it to the new one. Screw the new unit into place on the freezer wall and make sure the tube is not coiled or kinked as this will prevent the new thermostat from working properly.
I hope this will help in solving the issues.....

I have a hot point refrigerator. The fan in the freezer keeps shutting off. I can restart it manually but it continues to shut off every few hours. I have already replaced the fan motor. Any ideas on the...


With HSS being the beginning of your model number , the freezer fan gets it's power from the main control board . It runs off approx 6-9 volts DC . Replaceing this board , located behind the refrig , behind an 8X10" panel , will solve the problem . The part number for the board , is WR55X10942 . It is easily replaceable .
I have no idea what the other expert is saying .

DIPLOMAT APP6302 FRIDGE


The no frost fridge has a compartment that collects the water while it keeps defrosting on a time cycle. I presume that the tray is clogged and full. you will need to access the rear to see to this. Also try to reduce the cooling on the thermostat, reduce the times you are keeping the door open. all of his will only create more frost into the coils to be defrosted. Please also see that the cooling/blowing fans in the freezer are not blocked, allow space for the air flow. Helpful I guess. Good day

Freezer not cold, the meat is melted


Sounds like you have a defrost problem. Pull the back panel off inside of the freezer and make sure the fan is running (evaporator fan motor). If it is, check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat for continuity. If one is bad, you have found your problem. If both are good, replace the defrost timer, adaptive defrost board, or main control board (I'm not sure which you have since I don't have your model number). Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
