    Diagnostics 10-3) If the compressor is not working properly Pre-check 1. A compressor does not operate within 5 minutes after compressor is OFF. 2. A compressor does not run during defrost period 3. A compressor does not run because a low temperature is detected if freezer and the refrigerator sensor are not connected.

When COMP is OFF both freezer and the refrigerator cooling fans and COMP cooling fan remain OFF. 2 . When COMP is ON, the refrigerator fan is not always ON and when the refrigerator temperature reached a set temperature, the fan goes OFF.
