Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
My freezer side has completely defrosted. My refrig is cool but not cold. It sounds like the compressor tries to kick on but automatically shuts off right after.
You need to replace the PTC relay that is on the compressor. The clicking sound is a relay called PTC relay. You need to replace it. First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken
