SOURCE: very hot compresser upside down fidge

Is there a little fan back there with the compressor? if so is it turning? also check the outside coil, it may be covered with dust & crap. Sometimes that is all thet it takes. A good cleaning.

SOURCE: refrigerator Compressor hot to touch & fridge/freezer not cooling

you need to do an amp draw with your meter,clamp the run wire on the compressor,you should get 2-5 amp reading,any higher means the compressor is going bad,also should be a locked rotor amp(LRA) reading on comp.-mike

SOURCE: Hotpoint Mistral Frost Free Fridge freezer - fridge not getting cold

We have just had to call out an engineer to get our 1 1/2 year old Hotpoint Graphite Frost Free Fridge Freezer repaired. The fridge had almost entitely stopped cooling even when on high. I was amazed at how easily the problem was sorted. The engineer removed all the basktes from the freezer to access the screws on the inside backpanel of the freezer. Once this panel was removed it was clear that the so called Frost Free doesn't really mean what it says. The ice need to be melted with a bit of simple care. It is obvious that with a bit of care it is easliy a diy job BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND READ THE NEXT PART BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO REMOVE THE ICE> The ice forms around variouys pipes etc and he usecd a screwdriver to help release the ice quicker than waiting for it to defrost and he also used a simple hairdryer to help speed up the process. He had a ntowel and a basin to take care of the water. Next time I would have no problem doing this myself but I would need to leave it a little while to defrost and NOT USE A SCREWDRIVER as I am sure somehow I would puncture a pipe or the wall of the freezer itself and I am quite used to doing the odd bit of DIY. On a difficulkty scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being difficult I would rate the job as about a 3. Hope this helps anyone who reads this about £70.

SOURCE: fridge and freezer not staying cold but lights and fan working

the problem is going to more then likely in the main control board which is on the back of the refrigerator in a little compartment this board is bad about going out if you have power surges or outages

My Kenwood frost free Fridge Freezer KFC60SS15 has got quite a bit of ice on the drawers


Look at the door on the ice cube chute. If there is a cube stuck in it holding it open, ice will form on interior surfaces of the freezer. The door flapper must close tightly.

Miele Fridge Freezer not getting cold


Power off and remove all fluff under the fridge.
Compressor can be hot but not too hot. Are the settings ok for desired level cold. Is the fridge too heavily loaded? Try now.

Quick reference to your compressor says that it is a 120 V powered regular compressor.

It might be simple as starting device failure on compressor. Either capacitor or relay. Worst case compressor gone. Still not crazy expensive compared to a DC powered compressor.

Shut off the fridge (pull the plug) to prevent further damage to compressor and call a local service guy if you want to save the fridge.

Freezer is cold... fridge is not


Could you pull it away one more time and feel the compressor to see if cool, warm or too hot to hold your hand on. That tells me a lot of things. I want to see if your compressor is shutdown, running but not cooling or trying to start and cannot. That will help me to answer what we need to do next. Sea Breeze

Kenmore freezer not cold at all!


We had a Kenmore upright which worked fine but then suddenly was not keeping food frozen. Long story short, do not store anything on top of the freezer unit. It will insulate the coils that run across the top of the unit, and cause your compressor to work harder than it needs to, and eventually overheat and become ineffective. Says nothing about it in the user manual. We learned the hard way by losing food.
