The fan in the back of the freezer was making a noise. It had been doing this for a month or so. This morning there was a slight burning smell coming from the area of the refrigerator.
I replaced the upper fan and it now runs very smooth and quiet. I have let the unit run for 5 hours now but it will not get cold.
I can hear the limit switch on the compressor click and the compressor will run for about 15 seconds then the limit switch will click again.
The compressor feels very warm but not hot. You can leave your hand on it. The compressor fan is running fine and the whole unit is very clean.
Do you think the limit switch is bad?
Thanks for your answer.
ANSWER Hi John. Use a coil cond. brush to clean the coils part is . The Cond. fan needs to be running as fast as possible while the compressor is running. Part # TJ103. Is there any frost on the back wall of the freezer ? If so replace the timer part # is WR09X10049. Heater part # is WR51X10038, and the defrost thermostat part # is WR50X10071. Is there any frost normally on the coils behind the back wall? If not then it is a sealed system issue. Is the brass filter/drier cold ? (sealed system issue). Clean the coils and make sure the fans run and doors seal fine first. Thank You.
