Stopped working. clicking sound when it wants to start up. Is it the compressor or the relay switch model 8 yrs old old.


You.have to check if the compresor is working or damage. Try starting direct the compresor, Generali should be the electric part outside the compresor just change at the electric parts and should work. If you send a picture of the position on the connectors I will help you to try the compressor

COMPRESOR GETS REALY HOT IS IT THE SWITCH BAD OR THE COMPRESSOR


Reasons for a hot compressor are:
  1. It is just hot and is not a problem.
  2. Lack of ventilation to compressor.
  3. System is short of refrigerant which prevents the return refrigerant from the cooler being cold enough to cool the comp.
  4. If system is short this could make comp run continuosly trying to reach temperature
  5. If the thermostat is stuck on the inside cooler will probably freeze up, so that shouldn't be it.
  6. Compressor could be "letting by", meaning hot gas goes into the cold side of comp, if that is if it will stop working eventuallly.
Hope that helps.

compressor doesn't run


If the fan located next to the compresor works that means that the compresor relay is bad or the compresor burned out.

Freezer or fridge stopped cooling. Can not hear compressor kick on


If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.

Fridge freezer not working/power ok,


If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.
