Fridge stopped working. makes a noise like a turn signal from the circuit board. call local appliance shop and they said that it was the compressor relay. replaced and still doesnot work and makes the same noise. the compressor tries to kick on for a second them stops.
If you have a start capacitor on your compressor it is probably bad if not the compressor its self is bad. good luck ...

The other day my Samsung RS2555SL refrigerator started to make strange noises, and come to find out that's when it stopped cooling completely.... The compressor tries to kick on every few minutes or so, and there's a humming noise coming from this compressor. It's also extremely HOT! (the cooling fan for compressor is working fine) After researching the www, I ordered a replacement starter relay for the compressor. I thought that would solve the problem, but I was wrong. I dont want to go buy
Low voltage, bad start relay, bad compressor can cause the compressorto try to start but shut off on the built in safety overload.But you replaced the start relay so ignore the relay.\015\012Compressor won't ru ...

My MFD2560HES side by side with bottom freezer is not cooling any more. I purchased a new compressor relay/capacitor and replaced it today. It worked just fine for about 3 hours and then it started doing the same thing again. The compressor makes a humming noise about every 3 minutes or so and it feels very warm/hot to the touch. I am finally giving up with this thing. It is about 5 years old and has worked flawlessly until about a week ago. Has the compressor gone bad?
I have the same refrigerator and it is the same age as yours. We just replaced the compressor back in November. Sounds like the same problem. ...

Model 596.72252201 (bottom freezer) - making a "click...buzzz" noise about every minute and it is not cold anymore. We had a pro look at it today; he replaced the relay switch (maybe on the compressor) and cleaned out the lint. He siad to let the part cool, then plug it back in and he would give it a 50% chance of working...well, it did not work. Is there anything else I can do?
Hi,Unfortunately he did all anyone can do besides replacing the compressor.What you hear buzzing is the compressor trying to start but not being able too either because of a motor failure or the compressor part breaking and jamming everyt ...
All of a sudden our refrigerator freezer and refrigerator stopped freezing and cooling.. The fan is working, cleaned the coils, but when the compressor kicks on it only runs for about 10-15 seconds before kicking back off and makes a loud noise when running.. Is our compressor going out, and if so can I replace it myself..
UNPLUG and remove the compressor relay...if it rattles when you shake it..its bad, if not, it could be the compressor..it takes alot of specialized training and tools and material to replace a compressor. Its not a job that can be done by the average ...

Hi, I bought a side by side Whirlpool, 25RW D4 PT, It is an European model, and since, the compressor work a lot and it makes a lot of noise. When it starts working we hear a strange noise for 5-10 second and after the noise is only a loud noise. The temperature of freezer and refrigerator is normal. I don't know is the loud noise is normal for this product and also why the compressor work a lot?
Thank you in advance
My frig. is not cooling in upper areas of both compartments. I can here the compressor kick on, I cleaned all debris from condensor, its fan motor is working, but removed the panel on freezer side and noticed evaporator looking icy, also the evaporator fan hasn't kicked on. Do I need to replace both evaporator fan motor & t-stat. Or do i have other issues? Also, the damper is making a little noise like its trying to click on, dont know if thats normal. Please let me know if you have any solutio
Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issuesHere is a list of some things that can go wrong. ...
GS5SHAXNQ00 side by side refridgerator made "popping" sound when fridge side door opened and interior light filckerd & went out. Now has rattle from compressor area when door opened. Replaced interior light and still does not work nor do LED indicators. Fan runs and sound coming from or near some sort of electrical box at lower left rear behind inspection cover. Sounds like an electrical relay not making contact to go full on.
Any known culprits for "rattling noise"?
The popping sound could be a blown capacitor. Please check the and look for a burst cylindrical object. It may even have some wax around it. It should be replaced for the fridge to work again properly. ...

Norcold DE 828 on my boat. Haven't been able to replace door seals as no one makes them anymore. Compressor was always loud and always coming on. Recently, no compressor noise only a buzzing or humming noise...feels like refrigerator not cooling but freezer is icy and cold?
Is compressor shot or is there a selonoid switch or something that needs to be replaced. Refer has been on my bayliner boat since 1989.

DRCOOL299 reply Answer to my compressor shut-off noise: could be a broken spring inside the compressor and would only make a noise as the compressor stops. nothing you can do about it. you would need to break open the compressor, replace the spring, weld it back, then charge it up again with refrigerant. This begs the questions: Will this cause the unit to self-destruct? If so, how soon? What may be the approximiate cost or time for a technician to perform the fix you offered? I suspect that rep
First off there are no springs inside a compresser and it is not really a serviceable part unless you get into semi-herm compressers (commerical units) the best bet is to replace the compresser and drier at a cost from $400-800 depending on the compa ...
Clicking noise-GSH22JFR/SH200106 my refrigerator is not even 2 years old and it has started making some kind of clicking noise, sounds like compressor does not start. i do not have any extended warranty. can anyone tell me if this kind of problem would be covered under manufacturer warranty, which is 5 years parts n labor.
Mine behaves similarly. Compressor fails to start. Lights stay on but dispenser doesn't work. If paddle is pushed the lights dim and any noise of operation in the fridge stop
If you have a 5 year warranty, you should not take anything apart and consult the place where you got the appliance.They should be able to tell you exactly what is covered under warranty before they work on it. ...

I bought the fridge in 2006. In 2008 it began making a loud vibrating noise. Repairman replaced the fan motor blade.Took 30 days to get part! It was never quite right after that. Had problems with defrost not working properly. Lately it is struggling to keep the fridge side cool. It will get very hot, chocolate melts! then return to normal. Finally turned it off because it is making the same noise it did the first time I had it repaired two years ago.
Could all be in the fan motor. If it's bad again, I would change the motor and blade. Then fire it back up and test for correct cycling.\015\012That may take a week of running until you get a true picture of whats happening, but they do have a ...
Fridge is no longer cold, makes a clicking sound about every two minutes. fridge is side by side Maytag 26.5 Cubic feet, about 10 years old. It is model # MSD2756AE. When talking to a dealer/repair place, they say it's probably the compressor and they won't replace compressors. They mentioned that it may be a relay/start switch that is the problem, but the only way to know is to have that replaced and then see if it works for the next week or two. Is there any way you can trouble shoot it wi

Amana ABB222DE is the overload/capacitor the same thing as the compressor relay? I just had the compressor relay replaced in amana bottom mount. Frig cools fine but every 2 days or so buzzing noise clicks on....same problem I had prior to the relay replacement. Last time I didnt unplug until the refrig stopped working/cooling entirely. (and relay burnt out) Now if I unplug 1/2 hour it works for another 1-2 days before buzzing starts. Ran the service tests and on test #2 compressor/conden

Kenmore 41514 side by side had the clicking noise. Had the relay on the compressor replaced, but still makes the clicking noise. This started on Sunday and its now Tuesday. Everything is still cold on both sides. I believe that the fan is what we still hear running, which it does more than usual. What is the next step. Could it be a warning before the compressor goes out? Repairman seems to believe we have a bad wire harness causing a short.
One other thing I would check is the gear drive on the ice maker.I have seen them get a broke or chipped tooth on gear and make a clicking noise trying to engage.May not help but it costs nothing to try. Thank you and hope you have a good new year. ...

Amana refridge fridge will not work. freezer is on the bottom and he doesn't work either. lights come on and fan motor is running. the compressor makes a humming noise every 5 minutes or so. I'm pretty handy so it's not a problem for me to fix but I just don't know if it's the compressor or something else. thanks!
The humming noise is the compressor cycling on the overload protector. By the posted date I would think that you already replaced the refrigerator. ...

Seems compressor stopped working. No longer cold in either fridge or freezer. Took off back panel and found compressor very hot not making any noise except for a buzzing noise for about 5 seconds when I first plugged it in after unplugging it hoping that a restart would solve the problem. It's 8 years old, should I bother getting a service tech out here and fixing it? Seems like it's going to be a pricey fix

LFX25970 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator This morning it began to make a clicking noise coming from the ice/water dispenser and cold air was coming down from the opening. I pushed the lever for ice and it stopped for awhile. Started again making louder noise. I pulled out the ice bucket and replaced. I turned the ice maker to "off." Had to go to work. I'm going home at lunch to check on it. Help!

My Maytag refrigerator Model # MSD2651HEW (26 cu ft , side by side)
would not cool there was a rrrrrr noise with a clicking noise and the compressor would heat. I got a factory OEM part from Sears and replaced the relay/capacitor... I cleaned the Refrigerator very well and removed all the dust inside. Now it cools for a couple of hour's with no noise or problems and then again has the same noise and clicking problems , I put it off for a few hours and then plug it in again it starts to work.
Did you lay down the fridge while cleaning it? if so: Normally if you lay down your fridge the compressor oil is running into the pipes that carries the gas to cool the inside. if that oil is in the pipes you have to shut it down for at least 2 days ...

I have a Maytag side by side refrigerator when it is very hot and humid days, it stops working. The relay makes the noise every few minutes.It tries to start but then stops. After 24 hours, it will start again and work again for several weeks till it is hot again. I called a technician and he changed the starter (relay capacitor) and it did not do anything. He said it is compressor. However, I still have a question : why does it start working again and works for many weeks till it is a hot and h
