Question about Refrigerators
The refrigerator is cycling about once per second with what sounds like the compressor motor coming on then a relay clicking off then cycling again.Also, each time before the relay clicks off - the amp loads increase such that the refrig light bulb and other light bulbs on the circuit dim for a fraction of a second.This started happening a couple days ago - but would eventually correct and run fine. The problem also seems to occur when the power goes off. (live on a large boat and we have been having to disconnect power to boat a few times.Thanks.Wayne Bailey
Check and confirm that your power supply is good. Also try plugging into a different outlet. Your compressor is cutting out on thermal overload due to high amperage draw which is caused by either low voltage supplied or an internal breakdown of the insulation on the windings. If you have confirmed that your power supply is good and this still happens, you will have to replace the compressor.
