If you can hear the compressor at the back running and the fridge isn't getting cold then it most likely means there is a leak in the refrigerant system and the gas has leaked out. This is usually terminal as the likelihood of finding the leak then repairing it and replacing the gas can be quite expensive

SOURCE: Does not cool. Compressor is running, fans are

Hi, Look in the freezer section and see if there is frost building up on the rear inside panel. If the is frost, on of three parts are bad in the automatic defrost.
If there is no frost, the compressor might be weak and not pumping the coolant as strong as it should.
Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer sevtion and see if the evaporator is frosting at all.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further with this issue.

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all


If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

Check the compressor start device. The fans will be running and the compressor fan will be running but the compressor is problaly not running. If it is then it could be the compressor itself that is not oumping.

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.

Side by side, refrigerator works, but freezer does not The freezer just started thawing everything. We can still hear something running in the refrigerator.


This is unusual. The more common set of circumstances is that the freezer works but the refrigerator doesn't. The cold air in a side-by-side is produced on the freezer side and is than transferred throughout the freezer and to the refrigerator by a fan in the freezer.

You say you hear something running in the refrigerator. This could be the freezer fan. It is located behind an access panel in the freezer. This fan should run.

You should also hear the compressor (underneath the refrigerator) running. If this doesn't run, you will not get cooling. Also, there should be a compressor fan (underneath the refrigerator close to the compressor) running. This fan removes heat from the refrigerant coils and transfers the heat to the outside. If this fan doesn't run, proper cooling cannot be obtained.

Check these things out.
