Refrigerator warm/freezer warm. Overload/starter device doesn't rattle when shook. Cooling down of condenser sensor trips the fan on compressor fan operates, compressor gets warm, no visual signs of frost on coolant lines any suggestions?
If the compressor is running but not hot, only warm, and there is no frost pattern on the coils of the evaporator then the issue will be a sealed system problem. Could be a restriction in the filter dryer, a faulty compressor or leak in the sealed system.

Thank,You Ed
Answer Hello Ed,
When the unit is in defrost, terminal 3 to terminal 2 should read a complete circuit, (0 ohms). When in run, terminal 3 to terminal 4 will read a complete circuit. If these read good and the timer motor runs when 120Vac is applied across terminals 3 to 1, there is no problem with the timer. You should let the unit run until down to temperature and advance the timer into the defrost cycle and look a the heater. It will heat up if operating properly, (as long as the defrost thermostat is below 50°F). If this happens properly, you should check for voltage to the timer motor. The timer has to advance in order to kick into and out of defrost. The defrost timer gets its' voltage from the temperature control.
