Hey, it is possible compressor has been overloaded due to constant running, you could get access to it and have a look on the motor, all motors have overload protection, sometimes it can be a small button on the motor frame near where the power cable comes into it. It may even be located inside the terminal block for motor electrical connection. When attempting to fix anything electrical, you MUST ALWAYS unplug it and make sure it is dead.. Hope this may help. Matt.

Cooler Compressor runs but cooler won't get cold?


If the compressor kicks in then check the lines to see if they are cold. It is possible the compressor burnt out from leaving the door open. Purchase a sensor alarm to alert you if the door is left open.

yes it must be shut off and completely defrosted.with doors left open it usually takes about 2 days. what happened if you look at the back wall in the freezer from the inside you will see a bunch of ice and there is more behind that panel you are looking at. it froze up the coils so that no air will get through them. good luck rich

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

Switch off the unit at the wall and leave it for a day to cool off. I think your compressor has overheated and has cut out on thermal overload. There should not be any problem with leaving the door open. The problem with the compressor is likely caused by poor power supply or a power surge.

Freezer not freezing, fridge section not cooling


the problem you have sounds like the defrost heater is not being activated causing the evaporator to choke up with ice which will therfore restrict the airflow through the cabinet,
to resolve this problem you are best to defrost the unit and replace the thermal fuse for the heater' and the defrost sensor, both these parts are located behind the evaporator cover inside the freezer.

hope this is of help murdozzz2

Sounds like you have a bad relay on the compressor or a bad compressor. If the compressor is a Tecumpseh brand then it is most likely the problem.
