Sure sounds like a PTC relay bad. Take the relay off and shake it to see if you can hear a rattling sound.



The clicking sound is a relay called PTC relay. You need to replace it. First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

Unplug the Ref for 15-20 min., plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will need to be behind the Ref so you can tell if the compressor or the fan is running. It will help to take the cover off so you can see the compressor.
Compressor not running but you hear a clicking noise. The relay needs to be replaced.
Compressor runs but not cooling. Low on coolant

HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Is the compressor HOT to the touch? If so unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes and plug it back in.
If the compresor is cold then it may be stuck in the auto defrosting mode. When this happens usually either the 60 Deg F Bi-metal thermosat or a thermistor has failed. Items 30 and 31 this link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-59675523400/0583/0161000/M0705003/00010?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

(Evaporator

If that checks out then we start replacing the PTC relay and thermal overload on the compressor IF there is power to the compressor. Otherwise we start looking at temp controllers and themal fuses.

You make have to access the links above via this page http://www.searspartsdirect.com
Then enter your model number as 596.75523400 under find it fast / model search.

The other possibility is the electronic control item 5 under "controls":

The only way to find out is to read out the circuits with a meter.

Why is the fridge and freezer not cold enough


If the fan isn't running neither section will be cold enough. There may be something jammed against the fan blade or the motor could be defective.

Fridge and freezer are cool but not cold.fan in freezer doesnt come on the 15 times i checked. compressor is working and the evap fan is working .drain is clear


Have press in on door swtich. This might stop power to fan. Also some fans dont come on unless a tempstat is cold enough. With the box running take the freezer back panel down and see if you have frost on coil and the whole coil is covered with frost, If you dont you have a seal system problem. and need a tech. I hope this helps

This is what to do. On the side of the compressor is a relay overload set. Unplug the power cord. Connect a meter to the wires going into that set. If there is no power you will need the mother board linked below. If there is power you will need another overload relay set.

Fridge dont get cold.


If the compressor is running then it could be one of the following:
The compressor isn't pumping properly. The thermosat has failed. It has lost refrigerant or there is a blockage.
Not alot of help I know but without seeing the fridge it's hard to say.
