Kenmore - Food going bad as we type
Posted 11 August 2005 - 04:39 AM
First I interrogated the wife to get her to admit it was her fault for leaving the doors open too long. That didn't work.
That was when I moved on to something more constructive. I noticed clicking that tells me at least something is trying to happen. But the compressor never really comes on. I then ohm'd the windings and found no shorts there. Everything has power. Pulled the freezer covers to expose the coils but they were warm and DRY - probably been going on all day. Cleaned the filthy condensor coils - thought maybe the compressor went into overload. So then I let the compressor cool down and tried plugging the unit in again, but still getting the intermittent clicking with no compressor action. Fans inside and out are working. Then I packed the whole unit with some ice to keep whatever food from going bad. That was all last night. Today I called for service - looks like I might not be able to figure this out - and I'm told they can schedule me for NEXT WEEK! Well, I can go out and buy a new refrigerator tonight and have it delivered tomorrow, AND have it warranted for another 3 years, probably for about twice what it's gonna' cost to get it serviced. So that's my dilemma for the month. Well, actually it's my second...my home a/c went bad last week but that's another forum. Any help is much appreciated...and fast! I need to either get this fixed today, serviced tomorrow, or get a new one before the wife trades me in.
