Refrigerator & Icemaker Repair Compressor Is Running But Refrigerator Is Not Cold

PowerPoint Presentation:

If your compressor is running and your refrigerator is warm in both compartments, first check your CONTROLS. Inside either the freezer or refrigerator compartment you will generally find at least two dial type controls. One of them, called the cold control, is an electric switch that starts and stops the compressor based on the temperature that it senses inside the compartment. The other dial is an air door that controls the small amount of air that passes to the food compartment while the evaporator fan is running. First, try turning the cold control to the "off" position or unplugging the fridge; this will stop the compressor. Do you hear or feel a difference? If so, the compressor was running. Check The Controls

If you have a back-condenser refrigerator, make sure that nothing has fallen behind your fridge that might block the airflow. If you have a bottom condenser, remove the base plate From the bottom front of the refrigerator and look for any kind of blockage. Check The Condenser Clean your condenser with a condenser brush. After you clean your condenser, pull the lower back panel off the fridge. Make sure that the condenser fan is running and not blocked by any loose insulation or other objects.

Evaporator Fan Open your freezer door, depress all door switches and listen for the evaporator fan. If you do not hear it running, there's a problem. It might be ice-blocked, or it might have worn out and stopped. The door switch that operates it might be defective. If the evaporator fan is not running, You may need to pull off the entire evaporator panel. Check for anything that may be blocking the fan, including ice from a backed-up defrost drain or a frost problem. If something is blocking the fan, clear it out of the way. If the blockage is due to frost or ice, you must investigate the source and solve the problem. For more details please visit : www.a-1appliance.com

Frost problem Look at and feel the panel covering the bottom or back of the freezer compartment. Is it thick with frost? If the answer is yes, You need to remove it. Firstly, remove any icemaker that may be installed. You will see a removable panel covering the entire back or bottom of your freezer compartment. The panel may be frozen to the evaporator; be careful you do not bend or break it. Sometimes it pays to take a few extra minutes and melt the ice a little bit first. This can usually be accomplished by placing a pan of very hot water in various places on the panel, or by blowing warm air on it with a blow-dryer. Do not melt all the ice just yet; only enough to get the panel off. For more details please visit : www.a-1appliance.com
