IRT184300 Inglis fridge fridge stopped cooling and freezer freezing

Hello. classic came home from a trip and the fridge freezer was not working.
It has power lights fans, i put a 3in1 in compressor works.
the top corner of the evaporator coil freezes for 5 seconds then melts.
If i hold the copper end with the small copper wire coming out of it on the upper corner
it warms up from the heat of my fingers then causes the 5 second freeze again.
every aprox 5 mins the coil will freeze again the melt.
It seems to me that there is a thermostat where i hold it or a timer issue.
any ideas.
Thanks

Galanz mini fridge compressor extremely hot but freezer part is cooling

Purchased it used. I replaced the overload relay. It turns on and runs. Freezer gets very cold and fridge is kind of cold. I let it run over night I did notice the compressor was very warm but not to hot. Ran all night. Fridge got a little colder but not like it should. Been running about 16 hrs now. Freezer still very cold. Well just had a storm roll thru power came off and on. I checked the fridge again and the compressor is very very hot. Burned my hand by touching it. Freezer still cold and fridge cool but not cold. Bad compressor? The compressor was cool for about 15min when I first plugged it in last night

Kenmore Coldspot 106.58726800 fridge not cooling

Hello,

I have a Kenmore Coldspot 106.58726800 that isn’t cooling. The fridge is a stainless steel side by side with ice maker. I received it for free from a guy that said the fridge wouldn’t cool after a power outage. I assumed the problem was most likely the starter relay. I have purchased a new starter relay and have had it in for 2 days now, but the fridge is still not cooling. I’m pretty sure the compressor is running. I have tried the screwdriver to compressor trick and heard it running. I’m not really sure where to go from here to get the fridge cooling again. I have tried cutting the compressor off by turning the thermostat all the way down for a little bit and moving it back up to cold. The compressor cut off and on but still didn’t cool. Any advice on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Thermador ice maker doesn't dispense

10yo Thermador KBUDT4270A02. Over night, the ice make went nuts and filled up to the point where the container was popped out of the dispenser.

We had briefly used crushed ice the night before from its normal setting of cubes. Doesn’t seem to be any ice dams in the freezer otherwise.

I removed the dispenser chassis and it was frosted over on the non-active interior. Washed it clean and shut off the ice maker for the time being.

I discovered after the fact that the drip pan underneath overflowed as well.

Just emptied the overflow pan again. it was about 1/3 full in a day or so.
The ice dispenser motor turns as does the auger, by hand.
But when the door is closed to allow function (I would think), though empty of ice, the auger doesn’t move.

Not sure if I have 1 issue or more ……….?

Danby DFF280WDB not starting compressor, interior light flashing

Hello there,

I have two fridges of the same model, DFF280WDB from Danby. One black unit works fine, and serves as a reference. The white unit, once plugged in, doesn’t make any noise, interior lights are flashing slowly. Compressor doesn’t start, doesn’t click.

Already tried: I swapped the boards, and the “white” controller board works fine in the “black” fridge, so I believe that rules out the board as the source of the problem.

I also removed two parts that were connected to the compressor, likely the overload protector and what is marked as a relay. The overload protector has continuity.

The other part should be the relay, with “M” and S” markings (S for starter coil, not directly connected to AC, M for motor, directly conncted to AC?). It contains a disc, though not sure what purpose it serves.

Could it be something in the relay box next to the compressor? How do I test this part?
Edit: nevermind, I found out it must be a PTC, with resistance between terminals increasing as current flows. From what I understand, when cold, AC is applied to both starter and main compressor coils, running capacitor is shorted, then power is gradually cut off from the starter coil, and capacitor is un-shorted.
The PTC part tests at 5.3 ohms, whereas the OL tests at 0.6 ohms. Does that mean the start relay isn’t good anymore?

Could I try to hook up the compressor directly to the AC, first hooking up M and S to phase, then disconnecting S after one minute, leaving only M connected to phase?

Bosch B22CS50SNS/03 not cooling

Hello,

I have the Bosch B22CS50SNS 03 side by side fridge/freezer combo. A couple days ago I woke up to the freezer side of the display reading AL and a constant beeping. I silenced the alarm and discovered everything in my freezer was now thawed. I took the back panel off the fridge and saw the condenser was very dirty and dusty so I vaccumed it off hoping that would fix the problem but it does not. I called a repair man to come look at it and he pulled the back panel off and touched the compressor. He noted it was not warm and therefore was not likely to be trying to start and determined most likely the controller for the compressor was shot. I was quoted ~$600 to fix and replace this with only a 50% guarantee that it would fix the fridge and that it may be the compressor after all. I did a bit of digging online and found a YouTube video that sent me here. I pulled the inverter box off the compressor and checked the resistance across the windings, all are around 7.5 ohms but I could not get a stable reading (it would flicker from 6.9-8 mostly staying around 7.5). Not sure if my multimeter is just junky or if that is indicative of something. I tried to measure the input VDC to the inverter box but was unable to conclusively tell if I had done it correctly or not. There appears to be 2 wire harnesses above the inverter, one is the 120v input from the house into a block that appears to split to 2 other power inputs and the other was 3 wires, a ground plus 2 more. I assumed that was the VDC input being fed back from the motherboard on the top. Measuring there occasionally I would read 3V, or -0.3V or sometimes over range. Maybe I’m just doing a bad job, as I’m sure you can tell I am not really an electrical guy.

Just curious if anyone has an actual repair manual available for this unit or if anyone has any other ideas to test or if it does indeed sound like the controller (I assume he meant the inverter since he didn’t even open the top portion of the fridge to look at the motherboard)..?

Thanks for your help and advice!

Bosch B22CS30SNS/01 not cooling properly…

Problems with my Bosch B22CS30SNS/01…

First symptoms, yesterday:
Freezer not cooling to 0. Thermometer temperatures in freezer about 17 degrees. Fridge compartment o.k. at 36.
Powered off five minutes, restarted. Similar results throughout the day

Today:
Freezer temps continue to rise (28 degrees), now fridge compartment is about 50.

Testing so far:

  • Powered off fridge for five minutes, then on.
  • Held “+” and “-‘ buttons down until self-test mode was entered. Display cycled “L1” to “L10”, but no error codes displayed.
  • Removed lower inside freezer cover. Coils have a light coating of frost on them. The visible freezer fan shown runs when door is closed (or door button is pressed in).
  • The currently hidden fridge fan runs (can hear it) when the door button is pushed in.
  • I have not pulled the fridge out from the cabinetry yet. I must lower the front siders as it is currently wedged in.

I have a multimter, and am competent in its use, but have not made any measurements or tests yet, not sure what to test.

I’ve read through the highly informative thread on a similar fridge (https://www.applianceblog.com/mainfo…il-it-is-reset) and downloaded the service manual for that fridge, but mine is different.

A few questions to start:

  • Can someone post up the service manual for B22CS30SNS?
  • Is the test flow chart that was posted for B22CS50SNS in the other thread relevant for me?
  • If so, can someone explain how to perform some of the tests on the flowchart, and what the acronyms “OLP/PTC” means? Difference between and location of F and C fans? Is one freezer, one fridge?

IMQ225300 Inglis side x side Fridge freezer ice maker area freezing up

Hi all….been awhile since I posted but have a problem that’s suddenly started. The area in the freezer around the the ice maker and tray that holds the ice has begun freezing up with ice…when cleaned out, by the next day the same thing has happened. The freezer is set at just over B. Anyone any ideas as to what might be causing this and if it’s repairable?
Thanks for any help.
