Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Compressor comes on for a few minutes then relays start clicking and compressor shuts off. refrigerator not cooling.


Answers :

And it wont get cool as long as your compressor keeps failing to start. You will need to have this tested by a professional to at least find out if its the compressor itself, or the starting kit needed to start the compressor has failed.
Without proper test equipment, you wont be able to find out yourself if its one or the other, but a house call is a small price to pay to know for sure.

For the last 2 weeks I've been hearing a clicking noise for about 10-15 sec. with my Amana AFD2535DES fridge. Suddenly, everything stopped cooling meaning both the fridge and refrigerator portion. After reading on this help board, I changed out the relay/overload capacitor and it started working great. Then the noise starting coming back, not nearly as often and the compressor is getting very hot, but the unit still works (I unplug it at night for an hour or two and let the compressor cool off).

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.

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

My KitchenAid refrigerator is not cooling (including freezer). The problem started after a power outage during the night. Periodically the refrigerator makes a sound of a click with a buzz, another click, and then nothing for a few minutes. I suspect the compressor capacitor or the start relay has gone bad. What's your assessment?

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

Ice maker quit working, then water dispenser quit working, then it quit cooling and started the clicking noise from behind the fridge. As far as I can tell the compressor and fan don't come on. The light in the fridge works, and the water and ice dispenser seem to work. No cooling though. Seems like something is tripping and keeping the compressor/fan from starting? Is there a reset switch for the compressor?

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator model # 253.52322200. It starts up and cools fine for awhile, maybe 4 to 5 hours. Then it stops cooling. I think it runs until it reaches the correct temperature then the compressor shuts off and wont restart. There is a loud buzz, which I guess is the overload relay, that buzzes for about 10 seconds then stops. Then it will do it again about 10 minutes later. At this point I have to shut the freezer off and wait about 4 hours before the compressor wil

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 ... Maytag MSD2651 HE Side by Side Refrigerator

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?

Our Kenmore Elite Side by Side refrigerator stopped cooling. I replaced the start relay device like suggested (it rattled). I put on the new one (no rattle) and the compressor still would not start. Just the clicking noise occasionly like before. If the compressor is locked up can I hit it with a rubber mallett to unstick it and order a new relay. Or should I just give up? If I need to replace the compressor that is more than I am willing to shell out. The fridge is only 7 years old.
