HI. This will occur if the condenser coils are dirty. This will inhibit the coils from dissipating heat.

The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor. You should clean rear-mounted coils once a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Refrigerators are heavy, never tip one forward or backward. Never attempt to move a refrigerator without an assistant. Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the components of the refrigerator.You should clean floor level coils at least twice a year. Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning. Vacuum or brush the coils. Remove the grill from the front of the refrigerator and use a vacuum with a wand attachment to remove any dust and debris. The grill should snap off and on. Pull firmly toward you and possibly upward to remove the grill. If it does not come off with a modest effort, check for screws or retaining clips that may hold it in place.

My refrigerator LG GM 313SC wasn't working yesterday, I disconnect the refrigerator and notice that the compresor was too hot, I reconnet the refrigerator at night and in the morning checked the compresor...


I have 2 of the LG GM 313SC. Purchased brand new here in the Caribbean (Dominica) Both units when I turned them on for the first time are making a 'clicking' noise that is happening together with blinking lights on the temperature control inside the fridge section.
It isn"t even turning on. The light inside is dim, which the manual says is an indication of a problem, and to call an electrician. I think not, they are brand new and behaving the same way.
Any suggestions

Freezer not freezing, and the panel between the fridge and the freezer gets very hot


The condensor fan motor is probably not running. The condensor fan keeps the compresor cooled, if the compresor gets to hot, it shuts down until it cools off and tuns back on, but will not keep temp. Heat exchange lines go in the panel between the doors to serve as a heater so the doors dont freeze shut, but when the compresor overheats, so do those lines. That would be why that panel gets so hot. Both problems will be resolved with a new condensor fan motor ( located by the compresor).

Everthing sunddenly thawed out how come? whats the fix can i do it my self


If you heard the compresor running and it's not cooling ,probably is out of refrigerant(freon) ,but ifthere's power in the outlet and the compresor isn't working and is hot to the touch ,could be the relay or the compresor went bad ,also if there's power but the compresor is cold it could be the thermostat is open ( you can check it by putting a jumper in the thermostat wires).

COMPRESOR GETS REALY HOT IS IT THE SWITCH BAD OR THE COMPRESSOR


Reasons for a hot compressor are:
  1. It is just hot and is not a problem.
  2. Lack of ventilation to compressor.
  3. System is short of refrigerant which prevents the return refrigerant from the cooler being cold enough to cool the comp.
  4. If system is short this could make comp run continuosly trying to reach temperature
  5. If the thermostat is stuck on the inside cooler will probably freeze up, so that shouldn't be it.
  6. Compressor could be "letting by", meaning hot gas goes into the cold side of comp, if that is if it will stop working eventuallly.
Hope that helps.

Compressor doesn't run


If the fan located next to the compresor works that means that the compresor relay is bad or the compresor burned out.

Freezer or fridge stopped cooling. Can not hear compressor kick on


If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.

Fridge freezer not working/power ok,


If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.

Turns on...clicks every few minutes....never gets cold


It looks like the compresor is trying to start and goes off on overload ,it could be a bad relay or a bad compresor.Try first replacing the relay located on the side of the compresor under a black plastic cover(ALWAYS UNPLUGGED THE FRIDGE BEFORE DO ANY WORK) if that does not work you need to replace the compresor.
