SOURCE: amana side by side compressor not running

Cleaning the fins is always good. Is the fan by the compressor running? It needs to help cool the compressor. The description you mention sounds like the compressor is overheated and tripping the thermal overload on the compressor. See if you can turn if off for a day to let it all return to room temp then see if the compressor kicks on. If it was overheated it should run again for a while before overheating again. Let us know how that works and we can go from there.

T
From your description, you have a bad evaporator fan motor. The part number for a replacement motor is #5304445861.This is not a direct replacement but is more reliable.Remove everything in the freezer, take off the back panels and you will see the fan.
If there is a large frost buildup on the coils and the fan is turning you have a defrost problem. If that is the case, please call me at 334-347-0000 and I will walk you through it.

My Daewoo freezer is not working since yesterday, we tried to change the fuse but it just works for 15 seconds then,it stops we don't know why can you help please?


I would think that the compressor is either overheating, or faulty and cutting out on a Thermal overload cut out device fitted to the compressor.
If it is overheating, then it could be due to several problems:
1] Ventilation to the compressor is poor, or blocked.
2] compressor Cooling fan failed ( not fitted on all models)
3] Condensor blocked ( Not fitted on all models) This looks like a small car radiator in the compessor compartment (if fitted?).
Turn the fridge off, and leave it for up to 2 hours to cool, once cool, ensure that the ventilation is good around the compressor compartment, and try it again. If it starts and runs as normal it may have just overheated. If there is a fan fitted in the compressor compartment, then observe if it is working or not when you turn it back on.
If the compressor cuts out again, as you have described, trhen it is more than likely that the compressor has failed and needs replacing.
This is not a job that a novice can do, and will be expensive to have replaced by a Refrigeration engineer.
I hope this helps?

Model GSI-26 suddenly stopped cooling


It sounds like your compressor is having a hard time starting. Take your model number to an appliance parts store and ask for a compressor start relay. It plugs directly into your compressor and is easily replaced. Remember to unplug the refer first.

Has stopped freezing and cooling.


if compressor is working you will hear it. Take panel off and vacuum the area get all dust and debris of compressor and coils. This dust causes heat and will keep your frig from cooling. If that doesnt work try shutting down for about 6 hours like a defrost and restart.

Fridge just wont turn on any more. first it leaked water, then it got worse after that. THE FRIDGE SIDE STOPPED COOLING AND THEN THE FREEZER SIDE WENT OUT AS WELL. I CHECKED THE COILS AND DEFROSTED THEM...


try and replace the overload relay and start ptc on the compressor. if the compressor starts then you need to check the current draw on the compressor with a clamp meter if you have one.the current draw should be between 1.2 to 1.6 amps.if it is not within that range then replace the compressor

9-10 year old Frigidaire Gallery FRS26ZSH refrigerator stopped cooling as only the fan was running and not the compressor. Cleaned the lower coil and fan of a small amount of dust. The unit worked for 1-2...


might be your compressor relay gone bad. if the condenser fan was running and no compressor that could be the case. Also could be a bad compressor. you could try installing a 3in1 start kit. cost about $30. if doesn't start with that then compressor is kaput.
