My refrigerator has been having problems staying on. When it goes out I can hear a clicking noise every 5-10 secs. It might click several times before attempting to start again.

Not sure if the compressor thermal protection is keeping compressor for coming on. Any ideas. Im not sure how to trouble shoot the solid state control board. That is where the clicking sound co

Refrigerator stopped cooling. Compressor not turning on...No clicking or switch noises heard when attempting to actuate thermostat control- Fan does turn on and run when controlled by thermostat. Can also control fan by actuating pot in defrost timer. Do not hear "any" switch noise at compressor relay - even when attempting to control by actuating thermostat or defrost timer. There was no warning when fridge stopped cooling - no compressor noise or other odd sounds.


First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermosta ... Refrigerators

Whirlpool Refrigerator not working -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi all, I have a Whirlpool ED22PC SxS fridge which has stopped cooling on both the refrigerator and freezer sides.

After shutting off the refrigerator for cleaning, it doesn't turn on. I think interior lights work, but the refrigerator compressor doesn't seem to engage. When the thermostat switch is turned from the off position to the on, it makes the usual clicking sound. I unplugged for about 5 minutes and plugged it back into the wall but to no avail. Any ideas? Your help is appreciated.

Kenmore refrigerator 106.61282100 won't cool. Fans are operational and I hear an occasional clicking sound (relay?) I measure 120V AC out of the run capacitor (part #2169373) ofter every other click (0V otherwise). The compressor is warm but not turning on. My wife reported a burning smell before she noticed the fridge wasn't cooling. I can detect a slight smell as well but I can't locate it. Can you suggest any other debug steps, or do you think the compressor needs to be replaced?

My fridge clicking, buzzing and then clicking back off. Inside it was starting to warm up and was starting to leak water onto the floor. Today someone came out and replaced the relay. After 4 hours the freezer is down to 30 degrees but the refrigerated section is only 58 degrees. It does not sound like the fans are functioning and there is frost starting to accumulate on the back panel of the freezer. My fridge is an 8 year old Maytag. Is the compressor bad or is it something else?

Hotpoint HTM181BPWRSA - On the top center of the refrigerator section there is clicking noise that hasn't been there. Also, the cooling in the freezer section has turned off twice resulting in softening food. I found an access point in the top center of the refrigerator and when pushed with a screwdriver it turns the cooling on and off. It also can be turned resulting in changes in how the motor runs.

I have a GE Monogram ZDB24A under-counter drink refrigerator. Recently, it started freezing all the drinks we keep in it. Even on lowest setting (1), the compressor will continue running and cool the temperature down to 25 degrees or colder. If I turn the temperature knob toward "off" it will click off the compressor. Resetting the dial to "1" makes the refrigerator behave normally, increasing the temperature up above 40 degrees or so before it clicks back on. I'm assuming this is a bad therm

GE refrigerator Model No. GBS22KBSAWW A relay on the control board was clicking and the evaporator fan would try to start with each click. With the evaporator fan disconected the compressor runs, etc. I replaced the evaporator fan motor, and before I installed it, I pluged it in and the motor turned, but when I put the fan blade on, it would not turn, like the old one. Also, the condensor fan does not turn, but does not make the control board click.
