Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a Beverage Air MT 27 and t isn't cooling. Sounds like the compressor ties to kick on but then doesn't. There is a click each time it tries to go on then clicks off. Almost as if there is a charge or signal being sent to the compressor but doesn't fully turn on the compressor. The fan and motor still run fine. There have been a couple times when the compressor starts for a second or two and then has tripped the gfci outlet it plugged into and then the whole unit shuts down. Any ideas?

Answers :

I have the exact same problem on the MT27. What did you find was the problem?

I have an Amana SxS (model DRS2663B) that is about 8 years old. About a week ago, it started making a sound - kind of a buzz coming from the compressor area (or the little box I identified as a Relay/overload with start capacitor) that is attached to side of compressor. It buzzes for about 10 seconds and then does not buzz for 60 seconds or so. Fan is on all the time, does not get cold in refrigerator or freezer. I am not sure how long the warranty is as I cannot find the manual.

I have been using Wirlpool ARC 4020/1 IX for two years. Recently the following problem started to occur at random times: it turns on normally and in a minute it starts beating. The noise, coming from the compressor, is regular and keeps that way on up to 1 hour. At that, the compressor is warming up and gets hot at the end of session, while the heat exchange grid on the back is cool. At last, its turns off and turns on in normal mode at due time. Because it happans at random, I cannot show an

It beats because the inflow valve on the compressor locks up. Since the valve is inside it, no way of fixing it. When this happens tap the compressor with something heavy, it might unfreeze the valve - but this is a temporary fix, in the end you will ... Whirlpool 17.6 cu. ft.

The compressor will run at times, but the condenser fan doesn't start and the unit shuts off on either high pressure or the compressor overheats. Why doesn't the fan start with the compressor? The unit is less than a year old and it has done this since it was new. It may work for a month or two, but eventually it does it again.


My kegerator recently stopped cooling. When I plug it in the fan starts up and then compressor starts for a second and there is a clicking noise and it turns off. I replaced the relay and start/run capacitor. The only two remaining parts I can order are the overload and the compressor itself...is the compressor dead?

The overload relay is the likely problem. See if it is burnt looking or if it rattles when you shake it. Or just replace it. It's not expensive. If that's not the problem then it's the compressor. ... True TDD-2CT Beverage Cooler

Knocking noise occurs about 20 seconds after compressor starts. Sounds like someone knocking on a wood door. It last about 8-12 knocks and then stops. It does not occur everytime the compressor starts but more times than not. There is no water hooked up and the ice maker is turned off.

Whirlpool Conquest I have a similar problem, the fridge compressor sounds like it starts to short cycle. Starting and running for 3 seconds and stopping for 3 seconds and if this continues it does not cool the freezer or refrigerator the refrigerator light is out, the controls are off. the freezer light is on. Now if I unplug the refrigerator, this works resets everything. It may last for several days not having the problem or 3 times a day.

Constantly running My Roper is constantly running. The fan or compressor is always running, I have a feeling it is the fan more than the compressor. Sometimes it will turn off but then start again within a couple seconds. Otherwise it cools and freezes appropriately but I know this must be jacking up my electricity bill. If I turn down the thermostat while the fridge is running, it will turn kick off but then it will start up again within a fairly short time.

My Thermador 36 in Built In Bottom Mount Refrigerator heats up. When I unplug it and let it set for a day it will start cooling again but only for a week or two. After that time period, it starts heating up. When I let it set unplugged, the drip tray fills up with water telling me the freezer coils must be icing up. I have had two appliance technicians look at the refrigerator. The first guy said it is the fan motor and second guy said it is the computer board. The first guy said the parts were

Yesterday I came home and noticed my ice in the ice maker was melting. I pulled the back panel off and found the fan blade that cools the condensor was off so I put it back on. Today I get home and the frig/freezer is still not working. I hear the compressor trying to start, but after roughly 10 seconds it "clicks" and goes back on standby for a period of time and then trys to start again. Is it possibble it could be the capacitor or whatever it is called on the side of the compressor, or is it

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. I can hear the compressor cycle on but then goes of in about 3 seconds. Temp of compressor is sometimes around 110 degrees. 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

Sounds like it the compressor starter/overload relay. It's located near the compressor and should click when it tries to start the compressor. If it's bad it will rattle when you shake it because the internal parts can be burnt. The 110 degrees doesn ... GE GSH25JFR Side by Side Refrigerator

Found the unit circulator fan running but not cool in the freezer or fresh food compartment. I unplugged and replugged and the compressor started running shortly. I checked the frost-free feature already (clicked the light switch in the fresh food compartment 5 times in 6 seconds). I took the cover off the back of the cabinet and the compressor is now hot, but not too hot to touch. The unit is just not cooling off very quickly. I know the compressor is only 1.1 to 1.6 amps and that's not much. I

My Frigidaire side by side compressor comes on for a few seconds and then goes off, fridge is approx. 6 years old. I have problems with ice being hollow at times as well but replacing filter fixes that. What can I test to see what the problem is with the compressor.

I have a Kitchen Aid side by side , model # KSRD22FTST03. The fan in the freezer compartment runs all the time and I noticed frost build up on the back panel and in particular in the vent at the bottom of the freezer. Also, the water filter light blinks green all the time. So far the temps are good in both the freezer and fridge boxes. I also started noticing a loud rumbling sound sometimes just before the compressor shuts off. Maybe for 10-15 seconds. Thanks for your help

I have a GE GSS22JERF BB that started with failure to dispense ice and water with the lights dimming at every attempt. Now the Relay on the mother board is in a continuous trip mode and the compressor is not running. Unpugging for 30 seconds worked a couple times but now does not. Is it the motherboard as many of these sites suggest or is it the 5SP overload PTC. How do I test this befor i spend the big bucks on the mother board.

I have a Frigidaire sidexside, purchased in May 2005. The compressor does not come on, and will produce a 'buzzing' sound for approximately 17 seconds. Then the 'buzzing' sound will cease and all is quite. In a little over 2 minutes the 'buzzing' starts again and still no compressor coming on to cool fridge. This action is now all the time. Thank you

Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm ... Refrigerators

My Haier mini fridge has recently started making a strange rattling noise. From what I have gathered from this site and other online resources, it appears that the most likely problem is the compressor and the shell surrounding it, as that is indeed where the noise is coming from. Sometimes the noise goes on for a minute or two and then stops on its own, but other times I must gently hit the fridge or move it slightly before it will stop. The fridge is over 2 years old and out of warranty,

The compressor won't start, gets warm and shuts off after 10amps for ten seconds, and then retrys. I believe it is a defective capacitor, it ohms out ok but drops 114vac across it while the motor only heats up and then cuts out for about twenty secondx. Operations were normal, it was running two weeks while we were on vacation. As soon as we stocked it it began making a clikcing sound. and the motor heated uo and the compatments became warm.
