Must be a bad board. The one I repaired and re-installed made the compressor and fans come right on.

My freezer start only a few sec. After 10minutes start again


Roy,
Sounds like something is causing your compressor to kick the overload. It could be the overload itself or it could be the start relay or it could be a locked compressor. Probably best to call a service tech.

My side by side refrigerator on the freezer side is dripping water at the bottom on to the coil. The coil seems to be making a sizzling sound and turning red is this ok


There is a defrost heater that periodically turn on to melt the accumulated frost on the coil. The heater will warm the coil to about 45 degrees and a defrost thermostat should shut off power to the heater. The defrost cycle should only last about 30-45 minutes then the compressor should kick on. If you find that some items in your freezer are melting, or that the freezer is not maintaining temperature, then something is wrong. Hope this helps you.

Our sub zero refrigerator compressor kicks on for about 30 seconds then kicks off. The freezer is not working properly


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.



If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

My kelvinator upright freezer stopped freezing and it just kicks on and kicks right back of what could be wrong with it?


Start Relay/Overload or Compressor is bad. A bad compressor can make a Start Relay/Overload go bad but the only way to find out if compressor or Start Relay/Overload is bad is to replace the Start Relay/Overload if it starts and stays running you fixed it if Prob. returns in a week or so or if you have the same Prob. after replacing the relay the compressor is bad.

Freezer stopped running, think it maybe t-stat ? where to get one ? anyone know anything about it ? it is a mode C05NAA


Here is how to check if the thermosat is bad.
make sure you have 120v to one side of the t'stat. it is just a switch so one side is hot and the other side is not.There are two wires going to the t'stat'. you need to jump them (put them together) if you do this and the compressor kicks on, then replace the t'stat. if it doesn't come on then the t'stat is good. something else is wrong.
check to see if this unit has a timer. check the compressor to see if there is 120v.
i could not find any info on this freezer
Woods parts are not coming up. best bet is call:
partstown.com and appliancezone.com
i tried your model but it didnt come up

Our Upright freezer is broken. You can hear it trying to kick on and then it doesn't. What is most likely wrong with this and is it worth repairing?


It could be a bad compressor start relay or a bad compressor. Replace the start relay,relatively inexpensive. If it still does not work the compressor is bad.

GE chest freeze won't get cold


the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.

Compressor problem


The click your hearing is a thermal cutout that is kinda like a little breaker, it gets to the temp that it is designed for and trips. If its making a high pitch noise, more than likely the compressor itself has gone out and needs to be replaced, its getting a high load and triping the thermal cutout.
