First noticed, Freezer ice was wet, fridge area not cold, last night and back wall inside freezer was frosted, so cleaned out fridge & freezer, cleaned rear lower evaporator area fan does run. Shut unit off for good hour then notice water dripping out upper freezer door at bottom corner, not sure why that was!! Re started unit after about an hour, appears it ran all night now Freezer is cool++ but not real cold for making ice, Fridge is not very cool at all, the inside cabinet fan or fans are not moving air as normal. I have both settings at mid to upper range. Had no noticeable noises prior or performance / operational problems.
Answer Rooster, Check for ice or heavy frost on the back wall of the freezer, carefully press in on the back wall, see if you hear the ice and frost on the evaporator crunching. Sounds like a defrost problem.
My freezer/refrigerator will run normally, but when the cooling kicks on it just kicks right back off. It blows cool air, but not cold air. Just seems like as soon as whatever it is kicks on to make it cool , it just kicks right back off. but still runs normally.
You will want to make sure that the condensor fan motor is running. If not then check for 120 vac at the fan motor and if there is power but no motor operation then replace condenser fan motor. If the fan is ok, remove the start relay from the compressor and shake it. if it rattles then the relay is bad and will need to be replaced.
my relay part is 4SP1088 29 V01R, the relay that is see doesn't look the same will it work?
Answer Werner, Based on the model number you supplied [PTB1954GRW] you are about to order the incorrect part. Your refrigerator requires 12002782 (mpn 12002782) Overload/Relay KIT. You may find it easier to install this part, it also comes with instructions
I have a Crosley refrigertator modeL #CT19G6B. I have a replacement start device part #2319794. The new relay is different from the original and I need information on how to wire the new part.
Answer Hello Buffytech,
From my research, it appears that you have the wrong start device for your unit. The only way this wouldn't be true is if the compressor has been changed, in which case, I would need the part number of the replacement compressor to research it for a wiring configuration. The start device that shows for the model number you listed is 12002782, and consists of an individual overload and start relay.
