The part you are talking about is a compressor start relay. Type in "LG refrigerator compressor start relay" in ebay and it will pull up a picture. The compressor is extremely silent so you might need to put your hand on the bottom part of it, the top gets hot, and you should be able to feel when it kicks on (ever so slightly). You should be able to take a volt meter to this part to see if it is putting the 120V to the compressor.

Haier model BC112G. When I plug it in, the temp light flashes. Why doesn't the compressor start and it will not cool?


Bought a couple of small refrigerators (Haier) and brand new they weren't very cold. There was a real small screw in behind the temp control. If I remember correctly you turn it clockwise for cooler and counter clockwise for warmer. Try checking that out.

I have a MagicChef wine cooler that stopped working. Compressor and fan do not run although there is power to the unit since the light turns on. Compressor is hot to the touch.


your unit needs to have a new capacitor possibly. However, it will be next to impossible to find someone who will check it out and get the right one for this unit. Unless the unit is under warranty, I would suggest trying to get the retailer to replace it at no cost to you. If under warranty, the manufacturer should make it right? if both of those avenues are not available, then I would suggest get a new unit.

Unit does not get cool. I can hear the compressor kick on, but it goes off about 15 seconds later. After a minute or so it goes on again only to shut off again

Hi!
That is probably the compressor relay
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay

I have a Haier model BC112G that stopped working. I unplugged it overnight and it still won't work. It just makes a clicking sound once in a while. Any Ideas? Wayne


Sounds like you compressor won't come on, check you warranty status before you call anyone. This repair can cost more than the unit did. The clicking noise is the overload on the compressor witch will happen if the relay fails (rare on this unit) or the compressor locked up. Either way, check warranty status on you unit before you call anyone, maybe cheaper to replace unit.... I hope this helped..

Fridge not getting cold tempture on high number 7 what should we do to get it runing


5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

I just bought a wine cooler not sure where to start to fix it. Fans will not turn on


Hi there.........i take it this is a used / second hand wine cooler......if so you've probably discovered why its been discarded........problem could b due to a faulty compressor unit....the fans are usually wired through the compressor...and run in conjunction with it........if the compressor isnt running then the fans are out .........if the comressor is running then check that there is nothing impeeding the fans rotation.....check for broken or damaged wiring.....check for tampering by someone else....check continuity of wiring through fan coils.........check for faulty starter unit on compressor
