Question about Haier 3.9 cu. ft. / 110 liter Chest Freezer LW110

1 Answer

Haier LW110B- Sometimes it starts and sometimes not. When it starts, the clean coils get very hot. It won't shut off until I smack the control knob (but not always). When it doesn't start, (tries for a second then stops) the compressor still gets very hot. I imagine it's a (dirty?) thermostat for the first problem, but seems like a relay problem for the second part. Or could it be something else? It cools just fine when it's running.

SOURCE: Haier HCM050WA, not cooling, compressor very hot

Try replacing the compressor relay , if this doesn't solve the problem ,probably the compressor is jamed or burnt and has to be replaced.

Had same problem on my fridge a long time ago. Here is what was wrong on mine. Debris had clogged up around the fan blades to the point where the very small motor that runs the fan was not powerful enough to make the fan turn. When this happens the compressor has to work harder and harder until it finally shut down on safety cutout. I had to open the back of the fridge and clean up the fan blades, [ took the opportunity to put a small amount of oil on the fan shaft too, my Norge fridge is now over 50 years old.]

Haier troubleshooting


Does it have cooling coils in the back... or underneath... that might need to be cleaned and vacuumed out???. That is a common problem.. Another thing, check to see if the door is sealing properly.. The next suspect might be the temperature adjustment mechanism that you've been adjusting..

Troubleshooting problems with haier mini fridge hnsb02bb it clicks on and off every 20 seconds and it doesnt get cold


Feel the compressor top Kim. I need to know if it is too hot to keep your hand there. If yes it is too hot then unplug untill someone can perform the test listed below. If there frigerator compresasor pass that test it will be safe to replace the start relay=> RF-4800-48 Start Relay or here=> RF-4800-48 There are no photos of the overload start relay and the part installs under the cover on the side of the compressor.
Unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel that covers the compressor. There should be 3 wires going inside the cover of the compressor. Mark all 3 and mark their location so if compressor is OK you can put them back in same order. The plastic cover may snap on and you may need to squeeze the sides to unlock the cover and sometimes there is a metal clip holding the cover in place. Remove the cover. May look hard but it's simple. There will be three connections under the cover and 2 will go through the start relay. Unplug them leaving the three prongs exposed. They may be marked R =Run, S=Start and C=Common. Set your meter on continuity and then begin by testing 2 at a time until you have checked S to R and R to C an C to S and S to R again. You should get a reading all the way around. If no reading between any of the pairs as you go around you should get no reading between any two the compressor has an open winding and is defective. Then if it passes that test then touch one probe to R and the other to the copper pipes or clean metal on outside of compressor, then S to metal outside and C to metal outside. If you get a reading this way even just a little. The compressor is a burnout. Then let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Sides of Haier Compact Fridge are very hot to the touch


On some small units such as this, the condenser coil is actually in the walls of the cooler. It is not that unusual for this type of construction. I have seen this in chest freezers and other such units. If the unit makes the desired temperature, I would watch it for a day or 2 before putting any product into it to ensure it is okay and so you don't loose any product.

My freezer is not cold. The temperature dial reads 1-5 then an igloo and a snowflake. Do I put it on the snowflake to get it cold or the igloo?


Hello,

Insufficient cooling is a fridge repair job that you can do without the help of a professional. Often the fridge has a frost-free failure, or the compressor is faulty but there are many other reasons for a fridge not cooling properly.
Step 1 - Find the Problem

Your first job is to locate the source of the problem. Consider each of the following:

* Gaskets - Make sure the gaskets/seals are not torn and are sealing properly.
* Evaporator fan - Make sure it is working. If it is now working you may have a problem with the fan motor. Check for power to the motor and also examine the fan switches around the door (not all fridges have these switches).
* Air damper - Sometimes the air damper will not open up to allow the cold air from the freezer part to blow into the fridge section.
* Condenser coils - Check to see that the condenser coils don't have a dust build-up and that the condenser motor is working.
* Compressor - Make sure your compressor is working with on and off clicking noises.

Step 2 - Frost-Free Failure

This is the most common cooling problem in fridges. Expose the evaporator coils by accessing the panel in the freezer section. The coils in the freezer section can sometimes get clogged up with frost. This can stop the evaporator fan motor from blowing cold air around, or cause the fan to hit it and stop, or become noisy. The defrost timer can be a bit tricky to find but it is usually located behind the back bottom corners of the fridge, although they can sometimes be found in the ceiling of the fresh food section, or behind the cold control cover.
Step 3 - Find the Timer

When you find the timer, turn the wheel-like screw slowly with a screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. The refrigerator is now defrosting. If you find that the fridge starts now, you will need to replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer.
Step 4 - Volt Test

If the heaters do not come on, use a volt meter to ohm test the defrost heater or volt test for 120 volts to the heater. You can bypass the defrost thermostat if you haven't got power to the defrost heater to check if the defrost heater will come on. To bypass the thermostat, join the two wires together. Replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer if the heater comes on now.

If there is a ticking or squealing noise in the defrost timer, or it seems hot to touch, replace it.

Many fridges have and inline fuse on both sides of the defrost heater. You will need to replace the whole heater if one of those fuses blows. Check these fuses with a volt meter if the defrost heater doesn't work.

A quick check if you have a cooling problem is to inspect the evaporator coils. If there is a build up of white snow on the coils, this indicates a frost free problem; if there is balled ice on part of the coils with the rest bare, this indicates a system problem, like a problem with the pumping compressor.
Take care in solving the problem....

I am not sure what exactly you are asking but is your circulating fan working?

Runs fine then for weeks then trips on high limit


Hi, sometimes high-limit goes bad, but why, check to make sure you're not overloaded with produce, check to make sure freezer has good ventilation, if your days are hot, high limit will switch off, to pretect compressor, could be compressor getting faulty, you should empty freezer, clean and restart empty for an hour, if freezing o/k, put back produce, if when clean and empty, does same thing, maybe your compressor is faulty, called a mechanic, or replace high limit switch. good luck.

Inadequate cooling on walk in freezer


YES GOOD ADVISE . ALWAYS START WITH THE BASICS. IS EVAPORATOR COIL CLEAN AND CLEAR? ALL EVAP FANS RUNNING? DRAIN PAN CLEAR? IS STAT CALLING FOR COOL? IS OUTDOOR COND COIL CLEAN? IS OUTRDOOR FAN RUNNING WITH NO PLAY IN BUSHING? DO RUN AND START CAPS TEST GOOD? DOES CONTACTOR LOOK GOOD? THEN TRY TO CATCH UNIT WHEN TEMP IS ABOVE DESIRED SETTING. FIRST TEST STAT. IS IT OPEN OR CLOSED? IF BOX IS HOT AND ITS OPEN THEN PROBLEM IS STAT. IF STAT IS CLOSED AND OUTDOOR FAN IS NOT RUNNING THEN COMPRESSOR PROBABLY OVERHEATING WHEN FAN QUITS. CHECK FOR VOLTS TO FAN GOT VOLTS? FAN IS BAD. NO VOLTS? TRACK BACK TO SOURCE OF POWER ( CONTACTOR) AN R22 BOX AT 52 PRESS IS NOT TO BAD ON START UP ON A HOT BOX BUT COULD BE HIGH ON 502 408 OR R12 STUFF TYPE OF REF IS DEFINITELY IMPORTANT. GOOD LUCK
