Default Refrigerator fans intermittently run and stop
Model Number: RT21LMXKQ01   Brand: Roper   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Refrigerator makes Temp. in freezer OK. Both condenser and evaporator fan kick on and off every few seconds, until temp is made. Also compressor sometimes CLUNKS a little when starting and stoping, the motor mounts are OK. New Defrost timer (2213473)and Start device (2212964) and Condenser Fan has been installed. They seem to help a little, especially at first..

Default

Connect a meter set to check VAC to the two wires on the new start device. If you have 120 VAC and the compressor is kicking off, you probably have a bad compressor.

Default Bad compressor

The compressor and condenser fan recives power at the same time, as should be. I just caught the compressor not running with the condenser fan and it was pulling 10 amps enough to trip the overload and did while letting the fan run. The compressor was running at 3/4 amps in most cycles. So I guess I have a bad compressor, screwing up some of the time. Thanks so much for the follow up.
