Hello..It is my Pleasure To Be Working With You Today.,,You are saying freezer is room temperature..? Does the compressor run along with the fan next to the compressor..? If so is the compressor hot to the touch..?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Freezer is cold not freezing. Mullion is very hot to touch in the front only. Why ?...I am not at the house location now to look into the compressor temp.

I will have to go to the house, do you have any other ideas before I go?
If compressor is hot... What do you do next?

Thanks for your help...Stephan

Hi
I have checked the compressor and very HOT.
Fan is turning. Dust covers fan cage...
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 1 year ago.

Remove all debris from the condenser coils..If the fan is running and the compressor is running but hot to the touch..This means you have a sealed system fault..(Faulty compressor..Leak in Coils Etc.) Which is a $400-$500 repair..If the coils are covered in lint Etc. Unplug the fridge..Let the compressor cool down..Clean the coils..Then plug back in..If the compressor becomes hot again ..Then you have a sealed system problem..Also please remember to rate my answer to you at "OK " or greater so that i may be credited through the system for the information i have provided you on your repair problem..Thanks Bob

Ok I have cleaned the condenser coil, if that is what the fan is attached to. We will wait to see how it works now,.
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 1 year ago.
That is correct...Post back let me know what your results are..Thanks Bob
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Bob hi I am still working on this...
We had ice for day or two after I cleaned the cond. coil. Then it stopped cooling. The compressor is cold not making any sounds. The fan will turn in the coil. I read that maybe I should check for voltage to the compressor Starting relay?
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 1 year ago.
Correct..make sure you have power to the compressor...From what you are explaining looks like you will have a main control board fault.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Bob I have checked for power to the compressor at the starter. I have no power there. Does this mean I need to order a new control board?

Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 1 year ago.
Correct..The control board is what powers the compressor..
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Bob I have replaced the control board. I am now waiting to see if this fixed it.


If it works I will send the money. thanks for hanging in with me.
