Thats your overload relay , trying ti start your compressor, you can try to replace the overload/relay.part number 12002784. however if the unit is under 5 years oldyou should have compressor coverage through the manufacture,and the overload relay comes withthe new compressor

Not freezing or cooling and compressor clicking on and off


From your description it sounds like the start components (start relay, overload and capacitor) are having problems. The clicking you hear is probably the overload kicking out to protect the compressor. It is quite possible that the compressor simply has gotten too hot and after sitting a while will restart when plugged back in. The start components are not generally considered 'user serviceable' parts. When the compressor has cooled to pretty much room temp, plug it in and be listening for those clicks. If you hear them, unplug it because it could eventually damage the compressor. Those components give the compressor an extra jolt to get the compressor running then they drop out of the circuit. If the compressor doesn't start, it creates heat until the overload drops out.

Compressor is HOT, coil is not warm


Check to see if the fan is running down in the back by the compressor, if it isn't put a small fan back there blowing on the compressor, also make sure the compressor is running you can unplug it and block the fan by the compressor wait a few minutes and plug it back in so you can hear the compressor to see if it is running. if it hums and then clicks you probably have a bad relay and overload assy.

You can put a fan blowing on the condenser coil and see if this helps.

Good Luck,

Not cooling, fan making noise and now humming


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm


Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.
