Question about Samsung Refrigerator Compressor - MK172CL2U/E08
If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is getting really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off. I suspect the start/overload relay is bad and causes a high amperage draw which will then cause the over load to kick in. This start/over load relay will normally be right on the compressor and any decent appliance parts store will have a replacement.
