Asd2522wrb04 amana side by side refrigerator. clicks like it is coming on. then goes off. nothing freezes or cold. Why?


I believe what is happening here is a defective start relay and overload. Right now I would pull refrigerator away from the wall and unplug. Next remove the cover over the compressor feel top of the compressor and if it is not possible to keep your hand there from heat tells me the compressor is trying to start. Keep unplugged until replacing the Start Relay Kit below.Most times the compressor that begins to do these symptoms can be fixed by replacing the=>

There is a clicking sound like something is trying to turn on, the freezer has quit cooling and now the frig is begining to shut down what can it be?


How To Replace the Compressor Relay The compressor relay is accessed from the lower rear of the refrigerator. The compressor relay is located in the terminal box which on the side of the compressor.
Before replacing the compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged.
The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.

Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay (labeled "A" below), overload protector (labeled "B") and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor.


Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.


Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector for corrosion. If it is corroded it should be cleaned or replaced
Reattach the wire to the new compressor relay and press the relay back onto the compressor terminals. Replace the terminal cover box and plug in the refrigerator.

The compressor attempts a start up but shuts down within 30 seconds--freezer & refrigerator do not seem to be as cold as it should be


The compressor relay's purpose is to start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the refrigerator, the relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.

Gold Whirlpool 25.3 cu.ft refrigerator stop working


if the compressor is very hot then it can be possible that the compressor is getting faulty,but also other possibility can be the compressor relay.if the relay beside the compressor is got faulty then the compressor gets over heated.so first unplug the unit from main power outlet and then remove the relay and check it with continuity to confirm the fault.is it relay or compressor.

Freezer has quit working and now refrigerator not cooling like it should.


If you hear the start relay clicking after the compressor tries to start then you know that there is power to the compressor.
This tells you it is ether a bad start relay or a bad compressor.
At this point I use a meter to see if the compressor is shorted to ground.
If the compressor is not shorted then replace the start relay and give it a try.
You should hear the compressor start right away with a new start relay if that was the problem.
If the compressor is shorted to ground you will need to have the compressor replaced.
Given the history on whirlpool refrigerators in the 5 year old age range It may be good chance that a new start relay will fix your refrigerator.
If the start relay is bad you will hear it try to start the compressor and then click off.
If the relay is bad you will hear the clicking sound seconds after plugging it in and then again every minute or two as it keeps trying to start the compressor.
