Should my refigerator compressor be hot to the touch?


Hello friend, thanks for the post!

Based off the information you have provided your compressor can be hot to the touch because it is working to help cool down your refrigerator. I would allow it the opportunity to maintain proper temperature inside of your appliance before it stops running. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Condenser Fan Shuts off after 15-20min, Compressor continues to run but gets hot


Condenser fan motor or motor wiring is bad. That compressor should never run without the fan. Good luck.

Switches off after 5 mins


Thermostat click? A leaky pressure switch will cause this.

Stuck fan, causes compressor to get hot and stop.

Dirty coils, ditto.

Blocked outside vents, ditto.

Weak run capacitor, will cause compressor to run hot and stop.

Low voltage from bad breaker, house wiring, outlet, cord or internal switch, will make compressor run hot.

Low on gas, the circulating gas keeps the compressor cool and will overheat quickly if it's too low.

Have a professional check, pretty much in that order even.

Cabinet flanges and mullion very hot to the touch and not cooling at all, model ed25qf


turn your frig off as soon as possible! this is an easy fix but if it goes to long it can cause permanent damage to the compressor and then you have a huge repair bill, or a big piece of trash :(

What has happened is this:

There is a fan called the condenser fan that blows air across the compressor to keep it cool. This fan has stopped working for some reason and now the compressor is VERY hot. When this happens it stops running and you get zero cold produced.

The reason the mullion is hot is because there is tubing connected to the compressor that is run through this area for condensation prevention purposes. When the condenser fan stops working, this tubing gets much hotter than normal, and that is what you are feeling.

So, replace the condenser fan motor before the compressor gets to hot that it damages itself! If I can be of further help please let me know, good luck friend!

Gold Whirlpool 25.3 cu.ft refrigerator stop working


if the compressor is very hot then it can be possible that the compressor is getting faulty,but also other possibility can be the compressor relay.if the relay beside the compressor is got faulty then the compressor gets over heated.so first unplug the unit from main power outlet and then remove the relay and check it with continuity to confirm the fault.is it relay or compressor.

Refridgerator/Freezer stopped cooling


if the compressor was very hot to the touch, suspect you have a compressor fault

Compressor is extremely hot


Compressor will be hot to the touch. You stated the fan was replaced and then said the fan is not cooling. If you replaced the fan and it is now operating, reinstall the panel you removed to install the fan motor. That panel determines proper air circulation to cool the system.
