The capacitor is there to assist the compressor under start-up There is no switch that turns it on and off. compressor's uses a lot of power (AMPS) under start up so the capacitor (a device that that stores a charge) boosts the voltage to the compressor to assist it. in this case your compressor is 115v and your start capacitor boosts it to 125v. Sometimes if you have a bad compressor it can cause a capacitor to blow but rarely because all it does is store a charge and a bad compressor using allot of amps would drain the capacitor of its charge.

I have a Kenmore model 106.58964700 that both the freezer and refrigerator stopped working. The service technician said it was the start relay (Sears part number 2319792). I replaced the part with one from a local appliace parts store and after running from approximately 45 minutes, the temperature is 0 and 36 for the freezer and refrigerator, respectively. I also noticed that the compressor and copper tubbing running into the compressor is very hot (so hot it would instantly burn me if touch
Daleb870, Compressors on referigators run hot to the touch. You are experinceing a couple diffrent issues. First off 0 and 36 is a very ideal temp. The compressor and tubing are most likely hotter than normal as it was trying to cool down a fridg ...

The wire that needed connected are Red that comes from the freezer and white and black.

Samsung rs2578sh The unit is approx. 2 years old. It completely shut down-no compressor and no lights on the digital panel except a "-". The interior lights worked. I read a solution for a different problem on a similar model posted by CATRIVER which suggested putting the refrigerator in the self-diagnose mode by pressing the power freeze and power cool buttons at the same time for 8 seconds to get an error code suggesting a possible correction or repair.

Refrigerator just stopped working - coils are lint free. I just plugged it in and heard something - possibly the compressor but it has since stopped humming when I re-plugged it in. I think it may be the start relay but am not certain. Is there a definitive test to figure out where the problem is? Where can I order the relay from, how difficult is it to replace? Do you have a diagram Kitchenaid bottom freezer Model # KBRA20ELSS? How expensive is the part?

5 year old Amana bottom freezer. No cooling because compressor not working. Technician tried a starter but it short circuited. Now fridge is off. Worth buying new compressor or a new frig? Is this a typical Amana frig problem or a nowadays frig problem? What's the best model of frig to buy ie. most reliable. Is it worth buying an older, 2nd hand frig for long life?

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model number 253 76172610 With in Embraco compressor model number E G270HLP Which is rated at 10 LRA. It draws 14 A on start then clicks off after five seconds. The capacitor is a 15 ohm which is okay I checked with my meter.
I think the compressor is okay because it is pumping discharge line gets hot suction a line gets cool.
I am not familiar with this type of relay and I am having problems locating it. What do you think
I have a GE refrigerator model number PSC25SG SA SS which has Problem that in every couple days the freezer and the refrigerator display panels display out of their setting ranges. For example, the freezer panel displays 9 degree (0 degree is normal and the setting is 0 degree) and refrigerator panel displays 44 degree (37 degree is normal and the setting is 37).

I have a panel ready counter depth amana bottom freezer model # BB120TW. We have had problems with the freezer seal and have replaced it - it needs replaced again as I think the door is not level and its causing the gasket to seperate. This has probably contributed to my main problem: The compressor is not kicking on. Every twenty seconds, an electrical noise goes on - i think its the starter trying to get the compressor going. We have unplugged the refrig and plugged back in and that will

I have a GE refrigerator (model # GSH25SGRESS). The problem happens when the compressor needs to kick back on I hear a clicking noise from the main control panel but the compressor doesn’t start up. It seems that when I activate the water dispenser the compressor will start up again. I also noticed that both the water and ice dispenser do not always work and when they don’t, I try again later and they will usually work. The compressor shut-off when it reaches the refrigerator’s cooler set

I have a KitchenAid side by side Model KSRD25F. Both sides have gone warm and the compressor doesn't seem to be starting. The fan in the freezer is running as well as the fan underneath by the compressor. There was alot of dust buildup on the condensor which I removed. I can here a click on the starting device but compressor doesn't start. Removed the starting device from the compressor and it rattles inside when you shake it. Can this device be the problem?

I'm still working on the same problem. I have a GE refrigerator model GTS22IBMBRCC. The fans come on but the compressor does not. I assume with the fans running this means the thermostat should be working. I get no voltage on the compressor output J8. If I jumper from Line to J8 the compressor comes on. I believe this means the compressor relay on the motherboard is bad. I'd like verification before ordering the board.
Hi,\015\012Before I would order a board I would make sure to jumper the thermostat. The fans do not always just run when you need cooling, on some units they run contsantly or near continous for air circulation. Find the wires going to the ther ...

My Hotpoint Side-by-side temperature flucuates(model #HSS25GFTA). Items in freezer melt at times and then re-freeze. Same is noted for the fridge. Service tech added freon; however, problem continued. He stated that the computer "is ok", no leaks detected, and diagnosed the compressor as the problem and stated there must be a circulation problem. I suspect that the service tech is not correct and the problem may be the defrost timer or thermostat. Any suggestions?
