SOURCE: ceiling fan light the light keeps flickering then

this is due to vibration and the contacts get disconnected now and then from the surface.
i feel that you can sort out this problem by tightening the loosened connections of light.

Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing thencheck 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 starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I would suspect the mother board even tho it is new because if it burned out to start with
and you didn't replace the part that blew it out then the mother board will do it again.
It could br the relay or the compressor or any number of elect problems
Here is a generic sampling of my ideas.
First I would remove the mother board and look for a burnt or black spot somewhere on either side of the board. I would change the defrost Thermostat again just for fun.(Some times they are bad)

Here is some help

:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Hi i have a defy f640 SS fridge...the freezer side works fine...but the fridge side is not cold as before...please help


It could be that your evaporator fan motor has broken ... which for some refrigerators results in your symptoms of good freezer temperature and too warm in the fridge side. I am not familiar with your model so there could be other issues.

How do i replace the bulb on my Defy double door fridge F640?


In my opinion, it is very risky job. It may damage your fridge itself if you are not properly aware of that. I prefer a refrigerator mechanic to do this job.

DEFY F640 Fridge/Freezer side by side. The freezer made clicking sound, and green light flicker for a while then stops. Now it is not freezing anymore.


Hallo

It could be the theromstat, clicksen or the compressor.
But I think its the clicksen it is faulty and can't handle the amp stress test I hope for your sake other wise I believe its the compressor.

Regards

Freezer motor not restarting after it switches off.


Hello Rostakes;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

When you unplug your unit, then plug it back in you are giving the motor a surge charge with more volts than necessary to run the motor.
A bad evaporator motor will hum. The clicking sound that you hear is the motor fan blade striking something.

You need to check for 2 possible causes:

1.) The back cover in your freezer, that is in front of the evaporator motor and fan is very thin sheet metal and will easily flex. Inspect to ensure that you are not over packing your freezer and pushing against the back cover.

2.) It is common for the evaporator motor fan blade to have interference from icing. Inspect the back cover in front of the evaporator fan for frost and ice. Your freezer goes through a defrost cycle where the unit shuts approximately every 8-10 hours, the defrost heater turns on for about 20 minutes, the unit restarts. This is where they get the term; "Frost Free". If you have frost or ice on the back wall your defrost heater and Bi-Metl need to be replaced.

Due to the limited size of response by the site I can not walk you through the repair procedure for these parts. If necessary submit this repair procedure request to this web site.
