Sure there is a repacemnt compressor, problem is that youll need a technicinan to replace it for you, its one of the very few jobs that a ahomeowner would not be equipped to relaced on hter own soory

The replacement compressor kit is #12002633 from Amana (Now Whirlpool).
In this kit are the following New model compressor, relay/capacitor, jumper and instructions.
Kenmore does not make appliances rather all of the other manufacturers produce for them.
That part number is for Whirlpool Start Relay/Capacitor and as long as the compressor is the right horsepower for the relay it makes no difference who made it. (Techumseh or Embraco)

The recall was for units that had embraco compressors. the relay would burn up and not start the comperssor. (hum and click) some amanas had tecumseh compressors. They would just scize up and not run (hum and click)No recall. remove the back cover and see what name is on your compressor. If its hot and trying to start, Embraco needs new relay, Tecumseh needs to be replaced with a embraco compressor.

I think the Tecumseh compressor


Hi,
Yes, this time I think your compressor is the problem. The buzzing is the compressor trying to start and because it is siezed up or the motor is not starting the windings get hot and the thermal cutout activates cutting off the power till it cools back down again.
Changing the compressor takes specialized equipment to evacuate and save the regfrigerant, change the compressor and then re-evacuate the system and recharge the unit.
Get a firm price for the whole job before you tell them to do the work. It may not be cost effective on some units to change the compressor.
I hope that this has helped you to solve you problem.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I humbly disagree with Sea Breeze. We know the thermostat (cold control) is working because the fans are running and the compressor is hot to the touch. So we're getting power to the compressor. Now, only TWO things will keep the compressor from firing up when it has power supplied to it.
1.) A failed Starter. (that box connected to the left side of the compressor.)
2.) A failed compressor.

Then there are two things that'll take out the starter.
1.) Just a mechanical failure within the starter (blown ceramic disk). Note ---> You can normally tell if a starter is bad just by taking it off the compressor and shaking it. If it sounds like it has pebbles in it... it's bad. If it's solid, it's probably good.
2.) If the compressor locks up or fails, the starter is not far behind.

This Kenmore is made by Frigidaire. My experience with these is that 90% of the time, the compressor has locked up. You said you had access to the compressor... if it's made by Tecumseh (you'll see a blue Indian head logo on the sticker) I can almost guarantee it's failed. (Frigidaire is now putting Embraco compressors in their machines because Tecumseh was such a terrible one.)

All that to say this... you may decide that you want to replace the starter (if it's bad/rattling). If you do, go here and look at parts # 211 & 251 on the diagram... you'll need these. So, all-in-all, it'd cost around $20 plus shipping to replace the starter. If the new starter works? Great! You fell within the 10%... (almost like winning the lottery!) If the starter doesn't work, all you're out is the $20.

Good luck,
SG

My refrigerator buzzes for 5 or so seconds then


the buzzing noise your hearing is possibly your compressor trying to start up. this is generally a buzzing for 5-7 seconds followed usually by a click noise if it goes on for several hours you will notice the temps in the unit starting to rise. for alot of may tags with the tecumseh compressor the compressor had to be replaced. if it has an embraco compressor you can just replace the start relay on the compressor. let me know what you find thanks Peyton
