Question about Kenmore 72073 Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have a 5-6 year old Kenmore top mount Fridge not working. I first noticed the freezer was not freezing things and now it is totally not working. I have removed the back of the unit and cleaned the coils and everything else. I removed that black plug being held on by a metal clip and shook it and it does not rattle. The fan nor the compressor will not run...Any ideas
Worth checking if it's a starter problem before you do anything else. Leave the thing switched off for a couple of hours, then try and create a little hush around you while you switch the freezer back on. If you're really lucky, this may get you going again (some freezers can get into a complete mess if the power goes off for just a second or so at the wrong moment). If the compressor doesn't start, leave it switched on and listen carefully for a minute or two. A distinct "pdoink" sound some time after power is applied points towards the starter (which is usually under a plastic cover mounted on the compressor body). Replacing this isn't difficult and is usually cheap enough to be worth a gamble (but read the last paragraph, as there's a substantial risk it won't work). If there are no suspicious sounds (and maybe before you go spending money on a starter even if there are suspicious sounds), use a multimeter to test (carefully) whether electricity is getting to the starter. If it isn't, then find out whereabouts the power supply is getting interrupted. If power is getting as far as the starter, and the compressor is still not running even with a new starter, then you're starting to get into "beyond economic repair" territory. A.
