Why Fridge Compressor Overheats?

Fixing Fridge Compressor

How to Repair a fridge compressor

  Fridge compressors heat up when they run for long periods of time at low temperatures. This can cause the compressor to overheat and shut down. The most likely reason for this is that the thermostat has been set incorrectly.

The Refrigerator Compressor Is Not Running Properly.

If your fridge compressor shuts off unexpectedly, check the following things first: 1) Make sure the thermostat is properly installed. 2) Check the power cord. 3) Check the fuse box. 4) Check the breaker panel. 5) Check the fan motor. 6) Check the evaporator coil. 7) Check the compressor itself. 8) Check the door seals. 9) Check the freezer compartment.

The Refrigerator’s Thermostat Has Been set incorrectly

The thermostat controls the temperature inside the refrigerator. It has two settings: Cool and Warm. You should set the thermostat at the lowest setting possible. This will keep the refrigerator running longer and save energy.  

The Refrigerator Needs More Airflow.

f the air flow isn’t good enough, then the fridge won’t cool down as well. To solve this problem, you need to open up the door and let more air into the compartment.  

The Refrigerator’s Temperature Control System Is Not Working Properly.

There are two main parts to the refrigeration system: the evaporator coil and the condenser coil. The evaporator coil is located inside the freezer compartment and the condenser coil is located outside the freezer compartment. Both coils are connected by a tube called the cold line. The cold line connects the evaporator coil to the condenser coil.
