My whirlpool refrigerator/freezer is not cooling. lights come on, fan comes on...don't hear compressor coming on, not sure. coils are clean (they are in front). Don't know what to do next.


Switch off the fridge for few hours then before you you switch on check the continuity of the main power cord to the compressor which comes thrrough the main relay. Now the relay is activated by the thermostat/pressure switch/defrost timer.
So you will be able to trace the path of the power to activate the compressor. however if the relay clicks and shuts off the the capacitor must be checked or replaced. However if there is a heavy drain of current- use a clamp tester meter- the compresssor can be a suspect.
Please check this link for a idea of the parts.

My Matag Skybox compressor will not turn on. I can here it clicking and trying to come on.


HI. This is a strong indication of starter/overload relay failure. This clicking noise is coming directly fromm the relay device. it is damaged. this relay is the main starter of the compressor unit. It receives a signal from the main PCB. Once the power signal is received, the relay will regulate the starting, and stopping of the compressor, via control board and thermostat assembly. The failed relay will need to be replaced, asap. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly. The relay is mounted on the side of the compressor. Once the bracket, and terminal wires are removed, you can gently pull it away form the compressor, to check the contacts and connections for corrosion. If any of the contacts or terminal connections are worn, replace them. Worn contacts, or corroded connections will not allow for proper current flow.

NOTE_ I would advise to locate the clicking. Make sure its coming form the compressor/relay location. There are some units of this nature out there that are fixed(compressor and relay intergraion). If this is the case, simply replace the entire compressor unit. If the clickiong is coming from the main control board(PCB), the PCB, will be the culprit.

Fridge is no longer cold, makes a clicking sound about every two minutes. fridge is side by side Maytag 26.5 Cubic feet, about 10 years old. It is model # MSD2756AE. When talking to a dealer/repair...


Either a bad relay on the compressor. Or a scized or locked up compresor. My co. in NJ gets $95 to replace the relay, $450. to change compressor. $25.00 just to check it out. The Dealer is always more $$
Shop around, Smaller companies, smaller price.
If your unit has a Embraco compressor it may just need a new relay. The Tecumseh compressors all went bad and now are replaced by Embraco's

Refrigerator compressor motor will not run.


Does the fan work? If yes then the compressor has a relay and overload that might be bad. Or it could be a compressor that is bad. If its a compressor then you will need to have a tech verify that it is the problem. If nothing is running then it could be a thermostat thats not switching it on. Let me know if you need any more help with it.

Probably a bad compressor start relay.
Replace the relay before you condemn the fridge.

Our refrigerator/freezer will stop working (not cool or freeze) then days later will begin to work again.


If you have already tried shutting off for 24 hrs. (reset), cleaning the under-bed condenser fins (vacuum and/or compressed air) and the issue still continues, you may be lucky enough to just need a relay/overload switch; the thingy connected to the compressor, which by the way takes patience and ease in removing. However, once the plastic cover is off, simply unplug the relay switch(s) and shake it, if you hear rattling (or) smell burn, the relay is toast and thus needs replacement. Simple enough, for replacement type in the model # of the compressor: (i.e.) [[ Embraco FGS 80 with relay/overload switch ]] cost around ($30-$50)... order, replace, re-plug, and if on target, the compressor will kick in. let run for 24 hours before adding foods, and all is good. Have a nice day. ee
