Question about Refrigerators
Plug unit in (2004 stainless steel and black) ...the compressor clicks on but it seems like nothing is happening....then after 30 seconds the compressor clicks off....Is the compressor gone and is it worth fixing?

sounds as if you have an ice buildup restricting the fan from moving airflow to the freezer. Inside the freezer take apart the lower shelf and see if this area is full of ice, if so clean it and defrost it.

There is a PTC relay on the compressor you need to replace it. Small black square looking device take the wire retainer clip off and pry off the relay. Get the wires going to relay noted and then get the model number and make of your unit. Go to a parts house for appliances and get a new one. About 25 bucks for that little dude but it is a needed for your compressor. Could get a 3 in 1 relay they are a lot cheaper and easy to install. let me know how it goes ken

Chances are, the compressor has locked up. You can try skeeter140's suggestion, but I doubt it will do any good.
Pull the relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, then it's probably good. If it doesn't, go buy a new one as suggested.
Repair is not usually recommended.

As the compressor ir running fine this problem is because the refrigerant may be evaporated little which may cause short cycling of the refrigerator.Please fill the system with some more gas and this problem you wont be having.

If the compressor is running and there is no cooling then the gas (feron) may have leaked out. The only way out is to get the gas refilled.
