I have a Maytag side by side refrigerator(PSD243LGRW), the compressor dosen't work, no cooling at all, even the fan is running. After I change a overload/relay, I can hear ''click'' sound every few minutes, but the compressor still dosen't work. Do you think the compressor dead or need change capacitor or other reason?

I have a frigidaire model FRT21LRGW, the compressor was changed in 2005, evaporator& heat exchanger was changed in jan.2009. Last week apr.2009 the unit started giving problem AGAIN.

I am not a mechanic but was hoping if someone can help before i buy a new fridge.

The refrigerator does not get cold. The defrost timer has been changed. The temperature control was checked and found to be ok. The compressor is fine also. I'm also planning on changing the capacitor. Could the compressor be low on freon? Sign desperate.


Either the unit is low, or there is a bad capacitor. You can use a capactior tester or mult-teser/ohmmeter to test the capacitors first, but sounds like freon if your thermometer and temp controls switch is getting and sending signal. ... Kenmore Refrigerators

Refridge would cycle on, fan would come on relay would click but no compressor. relay kept clicking no compressor. I changed relay and capacitor on compressor plugged in all went well. after a few hours temps came down made ice fine fridge temp good. when it cycled off it cycled back on after awhile. Fan came on relay clicked but no compressor. Same problem. On a hunch I unplugged power line plugged back in and fan and compressor came on as they should Help would be appreciated. Frank.

Whirepool Refrigerator Should the compressor fan blow air toward the compressor? I thought it should, but if so, my fan blows air away from the compessor, which I believe is the cause for the compressor not working. The refrigerator was working before, so what could cause the fan to reverse rotation. How can I change the fan rotation. I reversed the wiring (120 volt), but it did not help.

Compressor When the compressor is running it appears to be functioning properly. However, when it stops it makes a loud "clunk-a-clunka" sound that makes me think that it's on its last legs or, perhaps, it is loose from its mounting and that the change in torque is causing it to move about. It sounds like it may be trying to self destruct.

I cannot change the temperature on my Maytag MFC2061HES. Whenever I try to change either the refer or freezer temp, it creeps back down to 33 with the freezer going to 6. I cannot turn it off.
