Whirlpool ARC7612 ? intermittent operation

I have an Whirlpool ARC7612 that has recently started shutting down intermittently - it'll come on for 2 days then will go dead... this cycle repeats (although the door light always works fine). The compressor works fine too - and there are no problems with the thermostat.
Is there anything else I can check that would be causing this?

SOURCE: Fridge/Freezer cools intermittently

It could be the thermostat. When you catch it in a cycle where it's warming up, gently tap the dial with the handle of a screw driver. If it starts chances are it's bad. If you know electricty you can jump the two terminals on the thermostat to do this test.

Freezer makes intermittent fan noise


one time i ran into this problem and found out the lady was putting hot things in the freezer creating alot of moisture. check your door seal also make sure its sealing if it had gaps you can heat it up with a hairdryer to streach it out.

Whirlpool AFB126/H/AL Freezer - Defrosting & Refrosting


Hi. I am Kelly and welcome to FixYa. Here is the real question..... Is the food staying frozen?

Freezers usually defrost 3 times a day (8 hr intervals) Some as often as 4 times a day. The freezer use concept is that it is not opened more than 3 times a day. (Yes there will be more times than that any given week)

Having said all of that.... some things to look at.

1. Check the door seal for any signs of tears... grease... collapse...

2. Make sure there are no gaps in the door or between the closed door and the seal.

3. Many people don't check this one... but make sure it is level. An un-level freezer can cause the door seal not to function correctly.

Now if your saying that the food is actually defrosting... then there are a few other things that can cause that.

A. Sticking / defective Defrost timer

B. Defrost element is not heating and the freezer goes through a VERY long defrost cycle as the contents have to reach 60 Deg F for the 60 Deg bi-metal thermostat to close and advance the defrost timer to start the compressor.

C. Intermittent operation of the 60 Deg thermostat

I hope this clears things up a bit for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kenmore freezer deforsted suddenly. Comes on


compressor relay is probably going out...also check the plug in to the wall. A intermittant contact is a matter of following the source to the compressor. start at the plug and through the temp sensor/ t-stat defrost control and down to the compressor. but ususlly the compressor relay is the culprit.

Does not cool and compressor relay keeps intermittently buzzing every 1 to 2 minutes. Condenser coils are cleaned and when you check across the overload protector pins there is no continuity.


When there's not continuity across the overload is because the compresor overheated , it could be the relay or the compressor that is burned out or stuck .I would let the compresor coold down for a few hours (unplugging the unit) and replace the relay (no more than $20) and if still having problems the compressor needs to be replaced.

Kenmore commercial standup freezer alarm


Sounds like the temp sensor is bad or intermittant. Check the connections to the display to see if they are loose. If not, the sensor might be bad, causing it to read the wrong temp. The fact that it is jumping around like that points to this kind of problem.
