SOURCE: LG refrigerator makes loud noise and then stops running.

You are seriously frozen up. Defrost the unit completely. Then, be aware that 'window shopping', leaving uncovered liquids in the box and poor door sealing (too heavy a load on the door ... too much on shelves) can cause condensation. Defrost with hot air or leave unplugged and open for about 2 days. You'll see alot of water come out.

SOURCE: squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt

There are several things you should know;

1. Power steering belt, when you make a turn, sometimes make noise, because your car needs power steering oil,=transmission oil.

2. when you turn on AC then you can hear a loud noise, you must check AC compasser,If the head wheel frozen, it will make a lot noise, that you have to fix your AC compasser.

3.check these two first, if both ok. shot some wd40 or lubricate see if it's work.

Hope this can help you

SOURCE: frigidaire refrigerator model FRT21LRGW5-compressor sound is loud

Sounds like the start relay or start capacitor has failed.

Unplug the unit until you can get a replacement or the compressor will be ruined (if it's not already.).

PTC start relay is P/N 218721108 $36.49
Capacitor is P/N 218909901 $7.99

P/N and pricing from Sears Parts.

My control wont let me change refrig side temp


Do you hear the fan running? The refer side doesn't have its own cooling. It gets it from the freezer. So if the fan doesn't work or the defrost doesn't work you will not cool the refer. Check two items. Defrost timer, fan

Rangemaster sxs cream . Why is my fridge and freezer the same temp ???? If anybody could give me an answer or solution.


Jason,
MOST refrigerators get there cold from the freezer side and circulate it via a fan that's also normally inside the freezer. 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. If you open the doors (and sometimes you may have to hold in the door switches) do you hear a fan running? If not you could have a couple things going on: 1. The fan(s) has failed. 2. The freezer Evap coil may of iced over and the fan too is frozen stopped. 3. Your condensing unit:(compressor, condenser fan, condenser coils) has a problem.
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

At 100 deg.it does not shutoff automatically


If your talking about a refrigerator, it never will as its goal is to try and cool, and its trying. It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor.

Hi expert, have the GE adora side by side..purchased in '08. I have been having problems for about 2 months. It started with the water not dispensing. I disconnected line..purged and still not working...


this unit has a control boardd that actually controls all the componets/timing sequences on it... g.e has had several issues over the last few years with advertising energy effecient stuff and then recalled some of there monogram units or made it available to customers that they needed the doors replaced in order for them to indeed be enrgy star qualified and then there are the units with control board issues... i would almost be 98% positive you have a control board that has failed... if you unplug it will start over and reset but once reaches timing sequence it will fail again and or relays stick on board/circuit problem... i would purchase a new control board also called main pcb
www.sears.com then hit the parts direct link up top it will ask you to enter the complete model number and you can find the part and price... pretty easy to replace also...just make sure while replacing you have unplugged and avoid excess static electricity around your new circuit board... good luck to you ....

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

Upper freezer temp. alright Lower refrigerator to


Sounds like the airflow balance is off. When you turn the aircontrol to max what you are actually doing is starving the frig compartment of cold air, cold freezer, warmer frig. It is recommended to set both controls to middle and see if it helps the problem.
