This is the mechanics (motor/engine) of the cooling system. It kicks in whenever the thermostat demands cooling.
This kit includes the compressor, relay, overload, drier filter, 4 pieces of tubing and mounting grommets.
***NOTE: This part needs to be installed by a trained professional in appliance repair. It requires special tools and knowledge to do so.
Freezer/refrig not cooling. Compressor is running but making noise. Does the compressor need to be replaced or does it need a freon recharge, or....? thank you in advance!
For model number 106.54606300
Hello and thank you for writing.
Usually not cooling symptoms would indicate an issue with the defrost thermostat PS11750673 and/or the capacitor PS11757023, however as you also have a compressor that is noisy, it does sound like the compressor PS2580805 is faulty and needs to be replaced. This compressor noise would usually not be caused by a lack of freon. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.
Keep searches simple. Use keywords, e.g. "leaking", "pump", "broken" or "fit".
Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Compressor "grounded" and quit running
Replaced the compressor with the new one I purchased from you. Installed new parts and recharged unit. The refrigerator / freezer is working better than new. Thanks for the great deal on the compressor. It was here in 3 days. All the parts fit exactly and had no difficulty in the installation or startup. The directions for the wiring were a great help also. Thanks again.
