Hi, freezer took a dump two days ago, fridge was still fine. Then 12 hours later the fridge dumped out too. The compressor is hot and the relay looking thing with part number nsk 85851 clicks on for 20 sec...


most likely the start device is bad,look at the left wall inside the fridge near the cieling,you should see a model number,call your parts store,give them the model number on the machine,there is other letters after the g and tell them you need a start device.unplug the machine,until you get the part so you don't damage the compressor,it's not cooling anyway and thhe freezer feeds cold air to the fridge side,a fan blows cold air from freezer to fridge so next time if the freezer has a problem the fridge side is gonna have a problem too,unclip the metal clip and slide the start device off,read the instructions and it will tell you how to install the new device

Fridge/freezer warm, water puddling underneath


Hi, clicking sound from compressor, means compressor not running (working) compressor overlay relay is what making that clicking sound, possible your compressor have a hard start, you can purchase compressor ( hard start kit ) from appliance store, your fans could be working, but compressor short cycling, you said fan not working? which one inside of ref, or one near to compressor, check fan, remove 2 wires from fan terminal, use ohm tester, place tester lead one on each fan terminal, if you get a beep sound (continuity) fan is o/k, if not, fan burnt out, replace fan, now if compressor is good, fans are good, then check or replace, defrost timer, but before doing any repairs, unplug ref, excessive water is because ref defrosting, because there's no refrigeration, remove your produce, leave ref. off for about an hour, then replug it, let it work for about another hour, then check to see if temp. dropping (colder) maybe you experiencing, low voltage, let me know what happened, then i can tell you exactly, what's the problem. good luck.

The clicking is from your compressor relay on the side of the compressor it has eather went bad or a condenser fan motor is not running this will cause the walls to be warm if the fan is running in the back try cleaning the coils hope this helps

Fridge freezer not working after power cut


If the fan motor is running at the compressor you should first replace the compressor start relay.
If the fan motor at the compressor is not running replace the defrost control.

Side by side


The clicking sound is either from your fan clicking against ice that's built up or from your compressor trying to kick on. Unplug your fridge and let it defrost for a day with the doors open. You will want to put everything in a cooler with plenty of ice. The next day plug your fridge back in. This should solve the click if it's your fan. If it doesn't then the click is in the compressor and you will need to hard start it. Hard starting a fridge is the equivalant of jumpstarting a car. It requires a specific machine. What happened was at the moment your compressor was going to kick on the power failed and so the compressor is frozen. Not temperature wise but figuratively. It needs a boost to get it kicking again. If you don't have a hard start machine consult fixya's local directory. This should just be a minimum service charge. I would try unplugging the fridge for a day first. It's cheaper. I hope this helps.

Well mine went through some of the same thing the fridge put out less and less cold ait and the freezer started to thaw just a tad on max settings. Mines about 8 years old and a kenmore.
Made the decision on an opportune time when Sears was having an additional 10% off sale..... my problem will be fixed ina bout 2 hours when my new fridge is delivered. The sad truth is (I now its cliche) they don't make um like they used to. Last fridge i had lasted nearly 20 years. Now if you get more than 5 out of an appliance you're doing good. Good luck but it sounds like the compressor died. You'll either need an expert to come out (think they have a min fee of $100 or more) or repalce it.

Freezer fine /After power went out twice fridge not cold enough


In back of the refrigerator is a removable panel behind which is the compressor. Listen for a hum and a click. If you hear those sounds the compressor may have failed. Behind that same panel is a condenser where heat is removed from the refrigerating system. Make sure it is clean and check that the fan operates when the compressor runs.
