Question about Roper RT18DKXKQ / RT18DKXKT Top Freezer Refrigerator
The fan turns on and off repeatedly and I can hear a click which I assume is the compressor trying to kick in. This pattern is almost continuos bit ocassionally I will hear the compressor actually start and go through a normal cycle. It seems to be cooling fine .
Its the compressor relay thats clicking[its a little unit connected to compressor with at least two wires]it could be that its [relay]going bad or the compressor could be failing,but it dose cool once it gets started so thats a good sign.the relay has two parts.one an over load,thats like a curcit breaker,it cuts power to compressor if its drawing to much amparage.the other part is a swith that goes fro start winding to run winding.as a repairman i would pull relay and use volt meter to check winds before replacing relay.its been alittle while but depending on age of refer,start winding around 2.7+-.5run winding 1.1 +- .5 new box use less energy so lower resistance older higher.hope that gives you a start ps fan goes off on because its starts with compressor.God bless ,tom
