SOURCE: Fridge not cool

the coil is frosted over and no air is being pushed to the fridge it may clear up after a few defrost cycles or remove the food from the freezer and allow it to thaw completely (12hrs) the ice behind the back wall takes a long time to thoroughly melt or you will have soild ice instead of frost and then it will never thaw soild ice.

SOURCE: Magic Chief compact fridge motor gets hot but does not cool

Look In the rear bottom where the wires plug into the compressor. There will be a plastic cover plate over the connecting wires. Remove it. Unplug the white wire. note the white wire was plugged into a small black box (3/4"x3/4") pull the black box out. It is connected by 2 prongs. If you open this up you will find a small metal disk that looks like a watch battery. pop it out and clean the contacts. put it all back together and it should work fine. I believe it is the thermostat and many times gets bad contacts and can even crack over time. The compressor will "click" on but the bad thermostat tells it "no"

SOURCE: Amana refrigerator stopped cooling.

Have you been hearing a clicking noise coming from behind the unit? This is the first indication of a failed compressor relay. Pull the unit out and unplug it. Remove the back cover and go to the compressor. You will find a device on the side of the compressor that has the wires hooked to it. This is the compressor relay and overload. It may be under a black cap. Remove the cap to access it. It may have 2 pieces to it or it may just have the 2 pieces encased in a white and tan box. Remove this box and shake it. If it rattles like gravel in it then it is bad. If it is in 2 pieces then it will have a brown relay. This is the piece that will rattle if bad. The white and black piece with one wire is the overload. They most never go bad. Use this replacement part kit...8201786 and follow the detailed instructions included in the kit. Thanks for the question. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Freezer light flashing

if you have ice built up on rear wall of freezer section then your unit is not going through defrost cycle which builds up frost on evaporator and restricts cold air flow over to the fresh food side.

Why is 2015RS-01 motor running...light on...but not cooling at all?


Hi Liz,

I am wondering what motor you hear? I think you might hear the condenser fan motor if anything. The two things that I have seen fail on u-line products are condenser fan motors and/or cold controls. Not much to the unit at all. So I am going to assume you hear the fan motor in question, I would check voltage to the compressor and see why it not running first. Get back to me when you now more information and I can help you more. Good Luck

Fridge stopped working light on motor not running


Robert,
Need more info. I am unaware of a "light on the motor". There are three motors normally in a refrigeration system. The inside Evaporator fan motor that circulates air across the evaporator coil inside the box, the Condenser fan motor near the compressor that cools the freon after compression, and the compressor itself. Normally none of these have a light. If you are referring to the light inside the box that turns on with opening the door AND the frig is not cooling, we must go to the very start. 1. Verify power at outlet.
2. Do you see (or inside the box- hear) the two fans running. 3. Is the compressor smoothly vibrating?

your motor thermal safety relay is protecting the motor from burning out
this is usually caused by: an old motor about to fail (tight shaft bearings) bad centrifical switch or, an obstruction in the water flow causing the motor to work too hard (draw too many amps, get too hot then cool down and, start up again
check the relay it is located on the side of the motor on most motors; under a cover; unless the motor is bad the relay may just be too sensitive (old) and, may need to be replaced.

My GE fridge (gss25jemaww) stopped cooling. The light still goes on and off like normal, and the motor works, but the fridge and freezer do not cool anymore. Everything inside thawed.


This tell me the compressor is not running. I would like you to pull the fridge away from wall unplug and remove the cover over the compressor. Feel top of compressor and if too hot to hold hand there keep unplugged and let me know. There are some test I would like you or someone skilled with a test meter to do to eliminate the compressor start components and motherboard. Sea Breeze

check back side of your fridge touch the motor compressor running or not if not running check the electronics board and make voltage check from electronics board to motor compressor. if the compressor running touch the one side of copper tube if have hot one side. if have hot your freon ok check the cooling fan inside the freezer side ok good lock

if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way

My cda554 beko refrigerator not cooling


hello there.........is the refrigerator motor running...(not the fan)...if this is running...pull the fridge out for access.....check the smallest diameter pipe on the compressor for heat.(not the small charging stub which goes nowhere)...in normal operation this small pipe should be quite warm to hot.....if its not it is possibly due to an internal gas leak....fridge motor will run but not cool the fridge.....if the motor isnt running but the internal fridge light is on when you oen the door it is possible the thermostat (temp control) needs replacing
