Does this new compressor come with oil in it from the factory? Thanks
Answer Hello Tater. Yes, the compressor has oil in it from the factory.
The bottom half of my freezer and refrigerator are the only areas getting cold. Since upper section of freezer not getting cold the icemaker is not activating and the water that is dispensing is luke warm. Any ideas? Refrigerator had been turned of for almost two years.
You will want to make sure that the evaporator fan is running. In a lot of cases, when the unit is shut off and closed up for long periods of time the fan will seize up and not operate. Check to make sure that the fan is running and if not then replace the fan.
Is my compressor bad? Is it worth fixing? The unit is 9 yrs old, but original cost was $1300. My refrigerator nor freezer are cooling at all. Woke up this morning to water on the floor from ice melting, food thawing in freezer, food not cold in refrigerator. Motor seems to be running, but making a louder hum than usual, lights on inside.
You will want to check to see if the fans are running. If the fans are running then check to see if the compressor is running. If the compressor is not running check to make sure that the condenser fan is running. Unplug the unit and pull the relay off the side of the compressor and give it a shake. If it rattles then the relay is bad and would need to be replaced.
