Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Did you pull up my model?
No frost. Fan doesn't seem to be running.
Built-in frig. can't pull from wall. Compressor on top under metal cover.
Can't get to compressor. Fan is blowing over coils. Buzzing sound in compartment left of coils.
Is it possible the frig is in defrost mode? If so, how can I change it back?
Are you still there?
That diagram doesn't help. When looking above frig, the coils are to the right. There is a grate covering the compressor(?) on the left. That is where the buzzing is coming from. I do feel air blowing over the compressor and out through the grate.
Should I remove the grate on the left and feel the temperature on the compressor? Is the inverter board a circuit board? I've heard the the main control board is unavailable and customers need to send their broken board in to get repaired and then reinstall it.
I will remove the grate and feel the compressor. Give me a few minutes.
Grate is off. Is compressor black-domed unit? If so, it is hot to the touch. Where does inverter board go? There is a plastic box in front of the black-domed unit.
Where is the control board located?
Is there any chance that it may be something else? Could it be in defrost mode and it needs to be changed back to regular mode?
Thanks for your help!
Hi Jon --
I had a local appliance tech come out yesterday. He thinks that it is the compressor that needs to be replaced. He touched the compressor and said it is running hotter than normal. Although the compressor is under warranty, he quoted me $800 in labor to install it. The compressor is on order. The refrigerator is running fine now, 0 degrees in freezer and 34 in frig. What do you think of his diagnosis?
