Fridge and freezer not staying cold


You didn't give age, make or model of your fridge, but I have found on two, made in the last 15 years that the newer models have a solid state starter switch on the compressor, and they don't last like the older coil-magnetic starters. They are a fairly cheap fix at around $50.00. Ask your repairman to test the compressor with his universal starter/capacitor most carry with them. Keith L.

TEST COIL PACK TO SEE IF THAY ARE FIREING


on the straight six you will remove the bolt holding each coil to the valve cover. Remove one coil and use either a spark tester or a test light. If there is spark the coil is good. If there is no spark swap that coil with another. If the swapped coil fires than you know the circuit is good. If the coil that didn't fire still doesn't fire than you know the coil is bad.

Did that help?

If you have any questions let me know.

Hello, I have a duo therm ac unit, the fan works fine in all the Fan only speeds, but when the ac is selected, the compressor comes on and the fan drops down to less than half speed. you can hear the fan...


Check incoming voltage circuit and wiring for proper gauge wire etc, and have compressor start capacitor tested, or replaced. I'm curious as to why circuit breaker didn't trip in panel when compressor causing so much current draw, that's reason for checking wiring etc to AC circuit.

My Amana refrigerator just stopped cooling the lights work there is air blowing but not cool...what can I do?


Hello,
The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.
The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons The fan or blower has failed. The coil is covered over with ice and blocks the air flow.
The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again. The second reason can be more difficult. 1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective. 2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working
Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good. The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device. If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.
For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.
So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things. The fan or blower The timer device The electric heater coil By methodically checking these parts you can isolate your problem and fix it.


Good luck in solving the problem....

AC is running but not cooling the house. It is a Payne unit. Changed the filter but didn't help.


Make sure the outside unit is working, both fan and compressor inside. If both of these are coming on and working, then your problem would more than likely be low/high refrigerant charge. You can also check the air flow inside and make sure it's blowing normal. Weak air flow can point to a dirty or clogged indoor coil which would have to be cleaned by taking the cover off of the coil, possibly moving flue vents out of the way, and taking the small cover off of the inside coil depending on if it's a upflow or downflow system. Hope this helps or at least points you in a better direction, good luck!

Will not cool, freeze or reset. Model # RFG293Ha


Top of Form If there is no coolingat all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming thecompressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while youclean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a goodindication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happenin about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer andfridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor andgas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get helpto test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is goodthe possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case youmust take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low checkcapacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling tocontinue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or thethermostat must be checked.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shutsif the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come tothe solution.

A had a new compressor installed and the air worked for about a week and then it began blowing luke warm air


When the compressor was replaced you should have had anew dryer and expansion valve put in, Most places wont warraty the compressor with out them. Also the shop should have done a vacuum test on the system to make sure you didn't have leaks. This is what it sounds like is happening to yours. Sounds like someone didn't do thier job correctly. Call your mechanic
