Do you have any technical background? There is a simple and sure fix to this but you will need to be able to read a wiring diagram and have basic electrical tools like a wire stripper and electrical tape.

My 3.6 cuft Magic Chef frig quit over a weekend. When I plug it in, the compressor is not running and is getting very warm. Is there any quick/inexpensive fix?

there's a small compressor starter that can be replaced. i had similar problem and it seemed to work. the bad starter could be a result of an underlying compressor problem though. for $40 i took a chance and all seems fine so far. the starter simply plugs in and is found under the electrical cover on the compressor. my pt# was P6R8MC, and the starter was black in color. be sure your unplugged first.

MY FRIDGE STOP WORKING AND THE COMPERSSOR IS VERY HOT. What can be wrong with it it is only 2 years old

Usually when a compresso that is not that old gets hot the problem is with one of 3 components

1. The PTC Relay PN P6R8MC

2. Thermal overload PN 265RFBYY
one of many sources:
3. Loose wiring or terminals
4. Worst case the compressor itself (5 Year carry in warranty!)

Items 1 and 2 above should be changed at the same time. Usually when one fails it causes the 2nd one to fail.

Before you go ordering parts.. just unplug the unit for about 45 minutes. Sometimes if there is a brief power outtage (less than 3 mins) the unit stops and the coolant has not equalized. The compressor keeps trying to start keeping the pressure up but yet the compressor does not start normally. The compressor gets hot and the thermal overload causes the unit to cycle on about every 5 minutes. Over an extended time of cycling the thermal overload will fail. After 45 minutes plug the unit in and see if it starts

If you change the PTC Relay you must change the KliXon thermal overload at the same time. Most LOCAL Appliance part supply stores will have both of these parts in stock. Use the part numbers above and walk in with the parts in hand.

IF you decide to change them your self FIRST make yourself a simple wiring diagram
I.e Orange to terminal ___
Blue to terminal ____

Then remove the parts by opening the plastic cover on the side of the compressor and then pull off the PTC and Thermal overload HORIZONTALLY. Obtain the replacement parts and reintall after inspecting the compressor terminals. Clean as necessary by scraping with a knife blade.

If after changing these two parts the compressor still does not start you may very well have a warranty carry in service compressor change. I seriously doubt that the compressor has failed but it does rarely happen.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

A workman screwed into a waterline on the wall backing the fridge. The fridge subsequently quit working. We think a fuse or something must have been blown and have unplugged a part from the fridge, numbers...

the P6R8MD/OR0502 is a PTC device .. thats a "Positive Temperature Coeficient Resistor" .. that is, it has a low resistance when cold and a high resistance when hot .. it is used to get the compresser started in the right direction ... it costs about $18 so it would be a good idea to test it before purchasing another .. if you know anyone with an ohm meter then they can test it .. it should read low resistance when at room temperature .. .. if it reads open then its bad .. even without that part i think the compresser will hum for awhile but just wont start .. other things (lights, displays) should work ok even if the part is bad .. check to make sure you dont have a blown circuit breaker in your main power panel .. just plug in a lamp to the same outlet the frig uses to check that .. if the lamp doesnt light then go to your fuse box and look for a circuit breaker out of position .. make sure the power outlet and its wiring were not damaged by the water

if you find that you really do need that part then it is available here

Vinotemp 24 - keep hearing ticking sound

It's the overload protector thats gone bad. Remove the plastic cover on the side of the compressor( LG model NS30LACG). The OLP is the one on top. If you open it up you will find that it may have some burn marks from electrical arcing. The part number is on the side (P6R8MC). Do a Google search for it. It costs about 12 bucks.
