Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Compressor starts and then shuts off

\015 After cleaning and defrosting my freezer, I let it sit unplugged for 3 days. Now when I plug it in, I can hear it come on, and then it just clicks and shuts off.\015

Answers :

I'm assuming it does not get cold.....did you turn the freezer when cleaning it? if so, you are supposed to let it [ the internal compressor oil ] drain right side up for at least 24hrs before turning on the unit.....try unplugging it for a cpl days, then plug it back it....if it still acts up, you may need to change a thermal coupling sensor......or depending on the age of the unit, replace it.

After a bit the fan came back on but no compressor. Finally when the compressor tried to start the over load just tripped on compressor.

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

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.

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

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?

Hi,\015\012\015\012It may be leaking but I think more likely is that you have a problem with the defrost system and it is not defrosting properly... that can give the same symptoms as a low charge or leak condition...\015\012\ ... Sub-Zero 561 / F

The compressor on my Hotpoint side-by-side refrigerator shakes violently about 20-30 seconds after it shuts off. This lasts for 5-10 seconds. It is preceded by the sound of refrigerant flowing through the lines (this sound gets louder just before the shaking starts). I did find a clip missing on one of the compressor feet, but replacing it didn't help. I have done all of the normal preventative maintenance, including cleaning the condenser coils. Is this an internal problem with the compressor (

Our 5 year old Amana Refrig has developed a new & strange noise in the last few days. Mod ARB2557CW, Mfg PARB2557CW0, S/N 10918811CV. Only happens when compressor is running. The noise is a faint sympathetic vibration which starts, continues awhile (say 17 seconds) then shuts off abruptly (like someone flipped a switch) all while the compressor is still running. It can repeat this cycle more than once during a compressor run. We never hooked up the ice maker. P.S. Killing power to the re

Hi, I,ve got a samsung fridge freezer, Model SRS582DSSB. It shuts down after approx. 24 hours, the compressor stops and the display is flashing displaying the temperature set by the factory on start up. I turn the power off, wait for 10 to 15 minutes and restart, then it works normal for a day then it shuts down again. The unit is operating like this for about 2 to 3 weeks now. What could be the problem? Many thanks for your response, hope there is a solution. Regards, Ernie

Noticed a sound from my Kenmore 106.41512101 refrigerator. It was a buzzing sound that lasted about 12 seconds and then shut off for 2 minutes or so and then start buzzing again. This was an endless cycle. Aslo discovered the fridge and freezer temps were rising. I then pulled out the fridge from the wall and removed the lower cover. Discovered the sound was coming from the compressor area. The compressor was also very hot. The fan was also constantly running. I thought there may have been a ba

I have a Sub Zero 650 and the freezer is working just fine, but yesterday the refrigerator part started acting up. It just will not hold a cool temperature. It will warm up to 55-60 degrees, and then the compressor will kick on for a few minutes lowering it to 48-50 degrees, and then it will shut off. This morning I opened up the top to vacuum out the condenser, and I noticed that the compressor was very hot and the evaporator coil?? (copper oil at the top of the compartment) was iced over.
