Hot Center Divider

Hi, I have a Kenmore side by side freezer/refrigerator and the center divider is hot to the touch. I cleaned the compressor radiator grille and the fan is running fine but it is still getting hot to the touch. What next?

Whirlpool Icemaker Not working

Hello,
I have a whirlpool French Door Refrigerator (Model: wrx735sdbm00). Recently, the ice maker stopped making ice. So I did a bit of research and tried conducting ohm test of the Ice maker motor by following https://appliantology.org/blogs/entr…-refrigerator/, in addition to T&H , and L&V for 110 volts.

Unfortunately, all of the tests produce no results with the ohm meter. I then proceeded to open the motor case to expose the copper connectors inside. I tried doing the same test by placing the multimeter prongs directly on the copper lines (pic attached), but is still get no readings.

In further evaluating the situation, i think I am sure that I may have isolated the possible situation. In the pics attached, I believe somehow the connector located in the pic that connects to the right side of the heating element got fried and may have done irrefutable damage to the other components. I am looking for confirmation on this and/or other thoughts and suggestions.

In addition, I am looking to validate that the main wire harness connectors are good and ample/adequate power/ohms/voltage is being properly supplied thru the harness (pic attached). Any recommendations on what prongs can be tested on the wire harness with the expected ohm/voltage output?

Thanks in Advance
Gary S.

DCF145A1WDD Danby chest freezer not coming on

Good afternoon, I’m working on a Danby chest freezer #DCF145A1WDD. when plugged in the only thing that comes is the green light that tells you its running. I’ve metered the compressor winding’s and it checks out also metered the start device and it checked out. The owner said it had shut down once before, and he turned up the thermostat and it started up again but only ran for a short time before quitting all together. Do you think the thermostat went bad? Thanks for the help

True Gem-12 Not Cooling

Hello Everyone,

I have a old commercial refrigerator that I’ve been using as a beer fridge for a while now and it recently stopped cooling.

It’s a True GEM-12 and after doing some research the thing may be pretty close to 23 years old – So my hopes of fixing it are relatively low but I figured I’d at least try.

I’ve done a bit of tinkering and troubleshooting and here is what I’ve done:

  • I can hear the compressor turn on when I plug the refrigerator in.
  • The compressor is warm, but not hot, to the touch after it has been running a while.
  • I can hear the compressor shut off when I move the temperature control to off (0).
  • I can hear the compressor turn on when I move the temperature control back on.
  • The coils are clean – I’ve vacuumed them several times.
  • Both the fan cooling the coil and the fan pushing air into the refrigerator are running.
  • The condensation hose is free of clogs.

Any advice or ideas on what to do next besides throw it away?
