Tip & How-To about Refrigerators
Is that buzzing/click you hear from the compressor area?
If it is from their, the relay on the compressor has gone out, OR the compressor is locked up.To determine which of those it is the amprage draw using a amp meter clamped to the wire on the overload thermostat where the relay is, must be measured, if 17 or higher amps the compressor has locked up, if its around 5 or so the relay has gone out and replacing both relay and overload will fix it.If the compressor has locked that is a major repair and may cost up to $1200
