Question about Refrigerators
I hear a click and humm for a few seconds every few minutes.
The click and hum your hearing is most likely the compressor trying to start. the most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. in rare cases the compressor may be bad. if you are mechanicly inclined youc an replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. you will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company. good luck Peyton
