Question about Sub-Zero Refrigerators
Previously it was not my property, so I'm not sure if it cooled or not, was shut down transporting it and the door was a little unlevel, when I start it starts the compressor but does not cool anything, you can help me. Thanks.
How soon did you start it up after you moved it & put it in its place?
If you plugged it in to soon after moving. Oil may have still been up in the wrong place of the compressor. Unplug it for about an hour. Then plug it back in. By plugging it in to early after moving you could have burnt up the compressor. This happens often.

Check if the condensar ( outside fan unit) is getting enough free ventilation. IF there is no free air flow you will mostlikely be triping the unit due to short cycling. Ie the unit is pulling its own discherge air causing the compressor to trip due to high back pressure

Simple think I guess - just pull down a little a plastic fan blade on motor shift it will produce a powerful air flow. Fan blade should sit pretty close to the shift end. ;)

that's about right, if the compressor is drawing more than 4 amperes, then it is no good.
A reminder also to check the condenser for dirt and debris that could have accumulated at the front, this is a major contributor to compressor failure. check also the fan near the compressor. it should be running at the same time the compressor runs.
that's nice to hear from whirlpool....
good luck tapperal,
tnx 4 using fixya,

it's probably a fuel injection problem. the seals wear or get some little bit of junk in seal surface and are unable to completely close. it's not a problem as long as the engine is running, the seals let in a little more fuel and the computer adjusts for it. after you shut it off the leaky seals let the fuel into the cylinders and then if you try to start it up it is for all intents and purposes a flooded engine. if you don't try to start it again for a good while the fuel that leaked into the cylinders evaporates or runs down into your oil pan. anyway, it's not there and so your engine is not flooded and it starts like it's supposed to. obviously i haven't looked at your vehicle and that's just a guess but it's based on vehicles i have seen. hope that helps
