THE MOTOR IS RUNNING, AIR IS BLOWING(NOT HOT, BUT OT COLD EITHER) I VACUUMED OUT THE UNDERSIDE HOPING THAT THE BUILD UP MAY HAVE BEEN AN ISSUE AND MIGHT NOT BE TOO LATE. NO HELP. THERE IS CLICKING SOUND EVERY 10 TO 15 MINUTES LIKE SOMETHING IS TRYING TO SWITCH OR TURN ON... THE WHOLE TIME THE MOTOR IS RUNNING... I HAVE READ ABOUT THE START SWITCH, BUT CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THEY THINK THIS SOUNDS LIKE BEFORE I GO SPEND $5


If your model has a start-capacitor on the compressor, that is the problem. When the switch energizes the compressor, the start cap provides extra current (technically phase-angle correction) to start the motor. If the motor start cap is ... Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator

Clicking Fridge I have a 3 to 4 year old Kenmore fridge. To date there doesn't seem to be any problem with the fridge working properly; everything stays cold in the fridge and frozen in the freezer. However, over the last couple of weeks we have noticed that it has been making a clicking noise. Every few minutes it sounds like it's clicking on and then right after it clicks right back off. It does this quite frequently and occasionally it makes a bit of a thud noise. Any help would be greatly ap

I have a small magic chef fridge that just stopped working. Can seem to get the motor going at all - if just defrosted by itself. Inside is a dial and a red button - we've clicked that a few times to try to get it working again, but it hasn't. Seems like something is trying to start as we'll hear a clicking noise occassionally but nothing starts up again. any thoughts?

I have an LG fridge w/bottom freezer model LRBN22511TT approx 9 yrs old. Actually haven't had any troubles with the unit until recently.

9 years should not be a death warrant. I believe your defrost relay (bottom front area under grill) has gotten stuck on. It's a small black box about 3x4inches with a timer motor built in it. When it is ON the heater in the freezer coils turns on and ... Refrigerators

The starting relay may be the culprit and is very inexpensive to replace. It is probably worth fixing. After it is fixed, make sure you get the condenser fins cleaned. ... LG Refrigerators

Just opened my freezer on Roper fridge model RT2TDKXKQ, got out some ice cream and it was loose/melting. Then opened the fridge section; light was on turn cold control all the way high then to off and back to middle. Closed the door and did not hear compressor come on, which it usual does under the circumstances. Where is the re-set for this fridge? I would like to try that before cleaning the bottom coils and calling in a repair person. Do you think a re-set might help? Got any other idea

I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator, Model BR18V1E purchased in 2002. I opened it and the refrigerator was not very cold and didn't hear fans blowing. I opened the freezer and my ice has melted, no coldness at all. I tried different plugs, tried the breakers, I don't feel it's an electrical issue. It's like the fridge is totally dead. I'm not familiar at all with refrigerators, so hoping for help.

The compressor is hot and the relay looking thing with part number nsk 85851 clicks on for 20 sec or so, then turns off, tries again couple minutes later with same results and keeps repeating. Wont keep anything cold obviously, fan is still running fine. Any help would be great. thanks


Hello\015\012The relay looking thing is a thermal overload switch.It sences the heat from the compressor and shuts it down to protect it from burning up inside.\015\012\015\012The question is why is the compressor so hot?\015\ ... Maytag PTB2153G Top Freezer Refrigerator

Hi, we have a side by side, Samsung fridge/freezer, model number SRS614DW . and the problem is it is not staying on. It will freeze to a set temperature, after turning it off at the wall for half an hour, for instance -24 for freezer and -1 for fridge. It will click on after turning it on at the wall, and will freeze to the beforementioned temperatures, and then click off. It is like something keeps tripping it off. Help. Regards, Nigel Burnett


The fridge temperature is too low, it shouldn't be set lower than +4 - maybe this is causing the processor in the control mainboard to lock out because it's trying to reach temperatures the fridge wasn't designed for. But it might also be a failed po ... Samsung Refrigerators

MSD2756DE, freezer warm, open doors and hear clicking noise - lights dim,bright, dim/brite. Repair man said the Tecumsin(sp?) compressors tend to lock up. No need to replace the relay, as it is probably the compressor. $570 repair estimate. He said on the newer models with the Embarco compressors, he would try a relay replacement, but not on my model. Any truth to this? He recommended that we buy a new fridge, so he doesn't seem like he's trying to swindle me.

My older Frigidaire fridge does not cool things down anymore. When the cooling system tries to start, it just chokes.You hear a click and the process shuts down, but tries to restart a few minutes later. There is some air movement from the vents, but that's it. What two non-experts have suggested is that either then gas is out, or that the filter is crapped up. Any help? Are we way off?
