This mini fridge is two years old and just stopped working. I can hear a slight click when I plug it in and again when I unplug it. I'd hate to throw it out and buy a new one if it is fixable reasonably. Thanks


You will need to replace the relay switch. There's a black plastic housing on the left side of the compressor. Just unscrew that, pop the cover off (that is a little tricky) and plug in the new part. Click on the link below to order a replacement rel ... Refrigerators

5 year old Amana bottom freezer. No cooling because compressor not working. Technician tried a starter but it short circuited. Now fridge is off. Worth buying new compressor or a new frig? Is this a typical Amana frig problem or a nowadays frig problem? What's the best model of frig to buy ie. most reliable.  Is it worth buying an older, 2nd hand frig for long life?


You can have the compressor replaced for around 500usd on the norm. that would be the most inexpensive way to go compared to a new unit , it will come with a 90 day-1 year warranty.\015\012Phil ... GE GTH18KBR Top Freezer Refrigerator

The mini fridge does not cool. This fridge doesnt use any fans so nothing to check there. The compressor seems to be awfully hot (although I dont know if thats normal) you wont born your hand but it would be fairly unpleasant to keep touching it. none of the tubes are cool to the touch. everything seems to be warm. Do i need to add new refrigerant and if so can I do it my self - i.e. can I buy the container and fill it up?


Hi, it's possible,your motor overlay relay has switch off motor, if your days are hot, or if room temp get high, that could happened,unplug ref. let motor cool down for about an hour, if compressor is running, but not cooling, it's possible you got a ... Sanyo SR-4911M Compact Refrigerator

Our Samsung fridge SRG-488 is not cooling properly. Our observations are as follows: 1. Each time it is defrosted, it works for few days and then stops cooling properly. 2. The freezer compartment gets ice deposited on the ventilation grid at the bottom of freezer. 3. What are dimensions of SRG-488 in case we have to buy new fridge and fit in the existing slot ? Many thanks for feedback & suggestions.

I have the Kenmore Trio refridgerator model 59675502400. The freezer works fine but the top fridge part does not. We heard a knocking like noise from the fridge the night before it stopped cooling. Sometimes our food froze in the fridge part when it was working. The compressor was entiely replaced about 3 years ago because both the fridge and freezer sections were not working. This fridge is awful but I can't afford to buy a new one.

I have a fridge freezer Teka A-FC1340. Having arrived back from a weekend away the fridge part of the unit was so cold that the jug of water in the fridge door was frozen. I turned the setting on the fridge part of the unit right down and this seem to cool the temp. I then came home from work yesterday and the water in the jug was frozen again. Can this be repaired at all? and and what cost as it maybe cheaper for me to buy a new unit

New symptom now. My FRS26R4AW5 side by side went fropm intermittantly cooling to not cooling at all. AFter the fridge being unplugged for 2 days, I plugged it in in the quiet of the morning and I heard what seemed to be the compressor come on and buzz for about 6-10 seconds and then click off. It seems like it is trying to start but cannot. NO cooling is occurring now what soever. Have replaced defrost control board and evaporator thermostat.

I have an LG GC 305NFB. It is not cooling. I called a tecnician and he said it seems ok to him. He turned it off and checked if the motor was working. he said it was. Nevertheless, he said that if the freezer did not cool after a period of time it wasnt going to work at all and I should go buy a new one. The tecnician just removed the drawers and checked that the ventilator was working. He said the heater was working too. The freezer fridge is not completely warm. There is a little bit of coolin

I have an Amana Model ATB 2115 HRW Serial # 10411331CV fridgerator. The top freezer & the bottom fridge portion would not cool at all. We kept hearing a loud clicking followed by buzzing again & again. I took the lower cardboard back off & carefuly cleaned all dust off anything & traced the clicking sound to the Overload Relay. I opened it & found the points were burned & pitted so I ordered a replacement Overload Relay Kit. The new one hasn't solved the problem. There's a tank that the

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.


On occasion your compressor windings can be damaged from the starting components going bad. Or like you said the comp is locked up which in turn damaged the starting components from them continually trying to start the compressor. Either way it sound ...

Unit has stopped cooling both freezer and fridge side. Before we knew the unit was not funtioning, smelled a brief, but strong odor of something burning, electrical/plastic. What is most likely the problem and the approximate cost to repair? Or am I better off buying a new fridge?


Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your Jenn Air fridge.Strong odors before the Fridge breaks means:1. The sealed system is broken and the repair will be quite expensive2. The electrical system from the compressor ... Jenn-Air JCD2290HES Side by Side Refrigerator

We had a new oven put in 2 days ago, and the installer turned off the circuit breakers. Ever since he turned it back on my side by side has been making a clicking noise (like a relay). Then it will hum for about 30 seconds and stops and clicks again. Then it does it again a couple of minutes later. Last night I noticed that all of my freezer food is thawing. Seems like fridge is working but freezer isn't cooling.


Remove the bottom front panel of the fridge and locate the defrost timer. This is a small circular motor with a screw slot in the center. Turn the slot CLOCKWISE ONLY and listen for a click. As soon as you hear the click stop, wait about five minutes ... Refrigerators

A few days ago when i used the ice dispenser the light dimmed then it stopped working. It worked again once then not again. About two days later I noticed that the freezer was not cooling properly. Last night I touched the ice lever and the whole fridge shut off but the lights were on flickering. Then a click about every second started on the circuit board.

MSD2756DE, freezer warm, open doors and hear clicking noise - lights dim,bright, dim/brite. Repair man said the Tecumsin(sp?) compressors tend to lock up. No need to replace the relay, as it is probably the compressor. $570 repair estimate. He said on the newer models with the Embarco compressors, he would try a relay replacement, but not on my model. Any truth to this? He recommended that we buy a new fridge, so he doesn't seem like he's trying to swindle me.


... Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator

Hi - I have a GE Profile Arctica model #PSC23NHMC. The fridge side works fine. The freezer side runs warm. I set the temp to recommended 0deg but it averages from 9deg to 16 deg. I had a local authorized repair shop look at it - and was told that there is nothing they can do to fix it and I need to buy a new one. The cooling system must be broke and they cannot fix or replace that. ?? cant the refrigeration system be recharged or serviced? Help anyone - thanks


Unfortunately these systems are very expensive to repair and most shops will not service them if repairs cost more than a new unit. However you could make sure to keep the coils clean and adjust the thermostat t ... GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

I have a Maytag side by side, MSD2434GEW, about 8 years old, the fridge side appears to be working fine, the freezer side is about the same temp as the fridge and not cold enough to freeze anything. It also makes a new clicking sound about every 5-10 minutes like something clicks on and then off again. Does this sound like something simple and what would it be, or is it time to look for a new fridge?


The clicking sound is the compressor trying to start . i belive that you need to reolace the relay start on the compressor . the part that maytag has on ther websight is 12002794 about 34.00 .. mm hope t ... Maytag MSD2434GE Side by Side Refrigerator
