Why does my freezer motor keeps running?
If your freezer is continuously running, then one of the most common causes is the freezer door or lid gasket (depending on your model of freezer). The door or gasket creates an air-tight seal and if it’s damaged in some way it will leak air and the freezer’s compressor will then run continuously to compensate.

Why won’t my freezer get cold enough?
Dirty condenser coils can cause cooling problems in the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator and check the condenser coils for dust and dirt buildup.

Why does my fridge make noise at night?

Can a fridge compressor overheat?
Many refrigeration compressors break down simply because they overheat. There are two main reasons why overheating can have such a devastating effect on compressors: Loss of the lubricating properties of the refrigeration oils. Chemical decomposition of the refrigerants and/or oils, which can occur suddenly.
How long does it take for a refrigerator compressor to cool down?
Go from minimum to moderate cooling ever 24 hours and if summer has arrived put it on a little more than moderate keeping the flow of cold air unblocked.
