Question about Danby DCR34 Compact Refrigerator
The freezer was defrosted two days ago and once the cycle was over the button clicked out but the fridge never went back to being cold (and went warm instead!) -- even when the temperature was cranked up to full cold. There is a clicking noise coming from the back of the fridge, but nothing kicks in.
Sounds like the compressor is locked up or the relay on the compressor is bad. whats happening is its drawing too much current and cutting out from the overlaod relay. that may be a bad compressor or the start relay. both the overload and the relay are under the black box on the front of the compressor. you will need to check the relay to make sure its good, and also the compressor. there should be a wiring diagram on the back that will tell you how many ohms from terminal to terminal on the compressor. hope it helped if its a newer unit the relays are electronic and if you shake it and hear like little sand pebbles in it most likley its bad and thats why it wont run.
