Question about Haier Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a small refridgerator with a LG MA53LBCM compressor. The compressor make a clicking noise every minute or so. The compressor makes no other noise and does not seem to run or try to run. The compressor gets very hot to touch, almost too hot to touch. Should I check into the overload or does it seem as though the motor has failed?

SOURCE: refrigerator Compressor hot to touch & fridge/freezer not cooling

you need to do an amp draw with your meter,clamp the run wire on the compressor,you should get 2-5 amp reading,any higher means the compressor is going bad,also should be a locked rotor amp(LRA) reading on comp.-mike

SOURCE: Relay close to the compressor clicks on and off

It can be either. Cheapest is to try the relay pack and see if that cures it. Most likely culprit.

Do you have any technical background? There is a simple and sure fix to this but you will need to be able to read a wiring diagram and have basic electrical tools like a wire stripper and electrical tape.

Why does 15 amp 250 volt fuse in my lg refridgerator keep blowing

the 15 amp fuse is blowing because the current draw to run the compressor exceeds 15 amps
that problem could be from a failed start/ run capacitor or a failed compressor motor (I am betting on the capacitor)
the best answer is to get a fridge technician to check it out as the capacitor is a cheap fix while the compressor unit is as costly as a new fridge

Refrigerator wont run. Clicking noise coming from main board preceded by a short humming noise every several seconds. Unplug for 30 minutes then plug back in and compressor starts up after several clicks...

That condenser fan motor needs to be replaced. You and doing the right thing as far as using a seperate fan to keep compressor cool,buy replacing the fan the compressor will run cooler and click off by being too hot as you have heard/seen.

Find your model number and call your local appliance parts store and see if they have a CONDERSER FAN MOTOR in stock

Refridgerator makes a clicking noise like a set of contacts trying to open and close. what might that be.

If the fridge is not working properly it's probably the starter relay trying to start the compressor. It's a small electrical part on or near the compressor around at the back behind the cardboard cover. It's cheap and you can replace it yourself. If it's not the problem but it can't start the compressor then you need a tech to look at the compressor.

If the unit is cooling the noise could be from the electronic control which could be on the back in some models and in fridge with the controls in others. A noise from the control usually means it's going bad.

My Amana ARB9059CS refridgerator is not cooling. Fans blowing top and bottom. Makes a clicking noise every few minutes. Tried unplugging it for a day, then plugging back in. Did not help.

The clicking noise you hear is a relay trying to start your compressor but your compressor does not want to obey! Compressor most likely is bad and needs to be replaced or all your refrigerant gas has leaked out and would need to be repaired and system re-charger with refrigerant gas. Not a cheap venture either way. Might want to consider getting a new one.

Very loud clicking noise from my LG LSC26905TT refridgerator

first you have to remove all shelves in the freezer,then remove all screws in the interior rear panel. In some cases you'll have to remove a couple of shelf tabe located on the side wall. Once tha panel is removed,the fan will be in plain sight. The blade is usually aboue 4-5 inches in diameter and is attached to a small motor with 2 wires and a green grounding wire. Note: you might want to check why it's making noise. Is there ice built up around the blades?Are you getting too much moisture entering the box thru faulty door gaskets?

You need to clean your coils under the 'fridge,' and wait 24 hours, if it is not not getting cold, perhaps replace the freon. If that does not work, you need to call a repairman.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge

i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

Don't start smooth

restarting of refridgerator may damage your compressor motor due to overload.

when you switch off the refridgerator the compressor is in load condition, sudden restart overload the motor, it consume more current so the light going to dim.

solution. If your refridgerator have no delay circuit inside,
use a refridgerator stabilizer or attach a delay circuit,
if you have the the restart delay circuit may problem repair it.
