Question about GE GSH25JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Relay is clicking from the circuitboard(12v-832a-1cs-s)

I am a certified electronics tech, I have found that by unhooking a connector by the compressor(4 wires on one,yellow,white,blue and red
3 wires on other yellow,white and red, this is a male to female connector) the relay quits tripping. I did not see the compressor fan engage however. I can reconnect the connector and the relay is fine unless I unplug the AC and plug back in, the problem returns.

any suggestions are appreciated!
also anyone know what the 3 wires go to, any mods to the mother board.

When you unplug the unit, the compressor needs to equalize the pressure inside before it can be plugged back in. If you plug it beack in too soon, the compressor will not start untill this pressure is equalized. Sometimes compressors get harder and harder to start as they get older and it gets harder for the start relay to start the compressor. I am not a electronics tech but it may be that the compressor is just hard to start and my need a hardstart kit.

Compressor makes a buzing sound and then clicks off.


Change the start relay.

The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by a tension spring or with a retaining clip.
Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay , overload protector and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor. Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.
Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector for corrosion. If it is corroded it should be cleaned or replaced.
Reattach the wire to the new compressor relay and press the relay back onto the compressor terminals. Replace the terminal cover box and plug in the refrigerator.

Is there a work around for installing a new Temp Control circuit board in a GE Refrigerator Model # PSS27NGMA WW. Orig bd has 3 connectors and new bd only has 2 connectors. I am attempting to replace...


I have a feeling that the temperature control board is not the problem. The fresh food compartment has two thermistors that relay information to motherboard through your control panel. If thermistor is bad or covered by an item it will continue to cool and freeze fresh food. Your air damper between freezer and fresh food compartment may also be wide open.

KitchenAid KSBS25FJWH01 - stopped running - no compressor sound - nothing. Someone said it is probably circuitboard - any start relay switch potential versus circuit board?


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

About how much does it cost to repair/replace the compressor on a haier 21' (top freezer) refrigerator. can anyone perform warranty service (compressor in warranty, not labor)? model: htq21jaaww, less than...


Could run as high as $800, material and labor. Tech providing service must have manufacturer OK if he is not a factory authorized rep. Since Haier is Canadian, that could be hard to find in the US. Tech must also be EPA certified to handle refrigerant. If you are not CERTAIN it is the compressor, also check the start relay/overload and capacitor. Same symptom but cheaper, easier fix.

I'm getting a wierd sound coming from my JBL2088HES refrigerator. It is a buzz like an electric shaver followed by a click. It seems to happen in 3 min intervals. Any Idea what it could be?


Kevin,

It sounds like it could be the compressor overload relay or the compressor itself. Lets hope that it is the overload relay, most compressor replacements are very expensive.

The overload/relay isn't very expensive and replacing it will be cheaper than calling a repair tech to tell you if it is the compressor or the overload/relay.

This is a relatively simple repair, if you look at your compressor you will find two wires connected to a small box ( overload/relay )
To remove the overload first you must remove the metal retainer by unhooking it with a pair of needle nose pliers.
Now remove the overload relay by pulling it away from the compressor.

The relay for your refrigerator has a capacitor connected to it, the capacitor and the relay are sold as one piece part # 67005560.

all that you have to do is remove the old relay with the capacitor from the wires by pulling the plug off and connecting the new overload/relay/capacitor to it, reinstall the relay to the compressor and you are done.

Good Luck

Whirlpool side-by-side won't get cold, compressor clicks on-off.


Sounds like the start relay OR the compressor is no good. Have a service tech look at it, because there may be a capacitor in the circuit, which could be dangerous for you to fool with.

Kenmore refrigerator compressor clicking


Relay on the compressor bad.

Try unpluging for 30 - 45 min until the compressor has cooled down then plug it back in. If it doesn't start replace the relay. Most service techs carry a universal relay and wiil put the relay on, if it starts, your good to go, if not, then the compressor is bad.

Thermoking


This system uses in conjunction with the transformers a rectifier which converts the High AC current voltage (220V-AC) to a Low AC current voltage (12V-AC) and then the rectifier converts that energy into the D/C current (12V DC). The two diffrent 12V power sources are controlled, operated by a "electric" relay, via a roadside or electric selector switch. DS_TK TECH
