    Compressor turns on and runs for about a minute and then I hear a click and it turns off. It feels warm. Is the thermal switch plugged into the compressor.

    I have the same problem, the compressor turns on for about a minute and then you hear a click and it shuts off. Does the thermal switch plug into the compressor or is it the little black thing that sits on the side of it

    How old is the frige?
    If new, did it cool initially and then quit?
    If the metal coils are exposed in the back, do they feel warm?
    Is the compressor making more noise than you think a frig should?

Refrig won't cool on either freezer or refrig side. Confirmed manual settings & allowed 24 hrs for cooling. Is there a reset switch somewhere other than manual switches inside refrig?


check that the compressor is working by feeling for motor vibrations at the compressor, hot compressor unit or hot fins or back wall of the fridge
if there is not heat then the compressor is not working
call a technician as it could be a start/run capacitor failed or compressor seized
get a quote as some compressor replacements cost as much as a new fridge
check that the utility power is getting to the fridge/freezer

Fridge runs good for 3 to 4 hours.then turns on but does not cool. i unpug for about an hour and then cools good for another 3 to 4 hours


Are you sure the compressor is turning back on. I would bet that you have a tecumseh compressor in your fridge and when they get hot they don't restart till they cool. The bearings in them go bad. We replace those with Embraco compressors. You unplug it and let it cool down and that is why it restarts.

Freezer not freezing and fridge not cooling


Check the back wall of the freezer for ice buildup.
If yes, a defrost parts problem.
Check the freezer fan. Is it running?
If no, replace the freezer fan.
Check the condenser fan at the compressor. Is it running?
If no, is compressor hot?
If compressor is hot replace condenser fan motor.
If compressor is not hot.
Replace the compressor start relay.

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

Losing coldness in freezer and fridge. side panels near freezer door are extremely hot to the touch. bottom back of the fridge is extremely hot.


Condenser is in need of being cleaned badly or your fan motor to cool the condenser is not operating. Compressor is overheating. Removed the panel in back of the refrigerator and clean the condenser so air can freely pass over it for heat removal. Allow compressor to cool off before restarting it.

GE refrigerator not cooling


on most refrigeration, the refrigerant goes to the freezer first and the tail end to the fridge. it is probable that the compressor is failing. compressors are quite hotg when running but not too hot to touch. if the compressor is too hot that also indicates failure. doubt it is worth repair
