    1999 Frigidaire 9950 btu ac tries to start and hangs

    Tries to start but hangs up, fails and retries. I've swapped cap with one I believe to be good. Still hangs up. I changed the piece up on top of the compressor that has 2 black wires running to it surrounded by what looks like a spring (forget what it's called) with one from a working ac and...

    FFTR1821TD0 Frigidaire top freezer refrigerator works intermittently, compressor runs, light bulb goes out.

    I noticed that the fridge light occasionally didn't come on when opening the door. I replaced the bulb but the situation persisted. Yesterday, I noticed that my Diet Coke (TM) was not very cold, so I suspected that the light not working may be related to the fridge not cooling. I cleaned the...

    KitchenAid Superba Model KSCS25FKSS00. Freezer not cold enough while fridge is fine

    Hi all, My KitchenAid Superba side-by-side freezer/fridge has a problem where the fridge temperature is fine while the freeze is not cold enough, 10-20F instead of 0F.

    PSS25SGNABS GE refrigerator not cooling

    The refrigerator isn't producing any cold air. When the unit is plugged in I can hear the evaporator fan running and see the condenser fan running. When I touch the condenser I don't feel and vibration. I tested the start relay, the overload and the compressor. Both the relay and overload have...

    Frigidaire Refrigerator FPRU19F8RFC sealed system issue.

    We are having an issue with our refrigerator periodically freezing food. We had a tech come out to evaluate and he is telling us we need a new compressor, evaporator, heat exchanger and filter drier. Does this sound correct? He never pulled the fridge from the wall so I’m not sure how he...

    GE Profile Fridge PFSS6PKXCSS stopped cooling after power outage

    After a power outage, our pfss6pkxcss fridge stopped cooling. At first, we noticed the front display was showing the old temps, but clearly these were inaccurate because it was no longer cool in there, so we turned-off the circuit breaker and left it off for 15 mins. When we turned it back on...

    Frigidaire Refrigerator FRT18LRH - Why is my compressor chirping?

    Hi! Whenever my fridge compressor starts, I can hear a faint chirping sound (like a distant bird) coming from it. The refrigerator is working like a charm, but this is annoying as hell! Is there a way I could silence it? **My fridge doesn’t have any condenser fan because the condenser coils are...

    LG Refrigerator LMXS30796 not cooling

    Hi all, I bought an LG LMXS30796S 3 years ago in the US and took it with me abroad. The fridge stopped cooling (totally) after 3 years of great work. A local technician checked and found no lack of refrigerant. Conclusion was it's either compressor or PCB fault. Since it's a US 110V product and...

    Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator GI5SVAXVL01 compressor stays on for 5 seconds and off.

    I noticed water at the bottom of the freezer and things starting to defrost. We just had a bad storm in which we lost power. Not sure if that was the factor. All the lights work, fan works, front panel works. The compressor kicks on for 5 seconds and turns off. It does this every few...

    Kenmore Refrigerator 795.72595710 compressor replacement

    I know, it's no surprise that the linear compressor in this Kenmore died. I'd like to replace it with a standard reciprocating compressor. I can easily bypass the panel, do some rewiring, and use a relay connected to the condenser fan to cycle the compressor. But then I read about people...
