The relay is located on the side of the compressor, which looks is under and behind the fridge. It looks different depending on what model you have but will always have 2-4 wires going to it and is the only thing attached to the compressor.

How to trouble shoot heat/ a/c fan switch.


Will your blower fan kick on in the medium position by chance? Med/ med high..if it is a 4 position switch, does it operate in the number 3 position? If so it is probably your blower motor resistor. If not, I would test the blower motor itself. Since the compressor kicks on when you turn the fan on, I would think the switch is working.

A/C blows good cold air and everything works as it should, however when I turn the A/C on (doesn't matter what fan speed) I hear a constant clicking/ticking noise coming from what sounds like a fan


What you are most likely hearing is the compressor kicking on/off. The constant kicking could be a sign that there's insufficient refrigerant to keep the compressor running continuously without shutting on/off. Eventually, the compressor won't kick on at all, a safety feature designed to prevent doing damage to a compressor that's undercharged. Have the AC system checked.

My fridge wasnt cold yesterday but the light was on and the freezer worked but this morning the freezer has started to defrost and everything was warm in the fridge


If you cant hear the compressor running and he fan under the fridge and in the freezer compartment are not running. The problem would be your defrost timer has quit on the defrost mode. Your defrost timer should be located in the fridge side behind the back plastic liner or if your controls and light are in the center top it will be there. The timer is plastic with a metal motor on one side. There is a shaft in the center that a flatblade screw driver will fit in turn it and you will hear audible clicks and the fans and compressor should kick in. I hope this helps. If the fans are working but the compressor is not the compressor is bad or the start relay on the compressor may be bad it is located under a plastic cap on the compressor and is about the size of a nickle and is connected to one of the 3 prongs coming out of the compressor. Remember to always unplug the fridge before working on it. good luck

My Trailer AC doesnt cool below 75 degrees. I feel no differnce between the coldest setting on AC than on the Fan cycle. I cannot hear the cooling system kick on at all.


If you don't here the compressor kick in after about 3 min then the thermastat is not telling the compressor to com on, or the control board is not telling the compressor to come on. The power can be traced from thermastat to the control board and will have a 12volt feed on the yellow wire at the control board with compressor mode on. From there it is 120volts the control board has a relay that turns on the compressor. the compressor capasiter can cause the compressor not to come on, normally it will have burnt wiring.

Ice on coils on back of freezer on Kitchenaid superba side byside


you have a defrost problem,could be several things ,first when you open freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not bad evap fan motor,if it's good check t-stat and heater,you'll need a meter to read them out, or if the wires are the plug in type going to t-stat unplug the t-stat and plug wire dirrectly to heater bypassing t-stat and if heater comes on get a new t-stat,also there is an adaptive defrost board located in the fridge side,if you find your tech sheet,take off kick plate and you should see it under the fridge taped on the kick plate or on the side and it will tell you how to get the fridge into defrost,i think you click the light switches 4 or 5 times together and it goes into defrost,if that's what the sheet says and it doesn't go into defrost it's probably the adaptive defrost whenyou find the part that is bad melt out all the ice with hair dryer,hope this helps

RV A/C blower not working and keeps kicking out


If blower not working, and yoou hear a slight "Hum" with fan only on, try this. With power off to AC. Go up on roof, and slide a stick through opening on side near rear, and try to get to fan blades at rear of unit. try to spin the blades a few times, even if it only goes a little at a time. Unless you want to take all those screws out & remove cover to get at it better, but watch for wasps under there. Give fan a couple of full rotations, then have someone turn it on to fan only & see what happens. If fan finally works, let it run for a few minutes on fan, then try cool & see if it all comes together again. Let me know.

Oldsmobile AC resistor location


The blower motor resister is located next to the fan under the passenger side dash. You will have to remove the glove box and plastic cover under the dash to expose the blower motor. the resister is next to the blower motor.

Refrig and freezer won't cool


if it is not cooling at all then i would suspect the compressor is not running. this could be caused by the start switch on the side of the compressor not working. as a first step i would take off the start switch and inspect it. sometimes you can tell just by looking at that it is bad (melted plastic or burn marks or pieces rattling inside). let me know the results so we can go to the next step if needed.
