SOURCE: I have a Kenmore fridge

Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.


If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I have a Kenmore 5 freezer, model 253.9135180. It's several years old granted but was working fine until 2 weeks ago. I unplugged it because it was clicking every minute or so like it was trying to turn...


Good day,
The clicking sound is the compressor trying to start and can't. The relay is clipped onto the side of the compressor and can be removed by pulling the relay off the compressor once the retrainer clamps are removed.
You can take the relay to most appliance parts houses. They Will be more than happy to test it. If it tests bad, replace it. If not, I'm afraid it is probably an internal problem with the compressor itself, and you will need to call a qualified tech since it will take special tools to test it.

Freezer fan on compressor off


They make generic "compressor packs" to solve these. Your capacitors and relay and parts that support the compressor operation went out.

If you're really really like just the temp overload switch went and you can jumper bypass it. It usually looks like a piezo electric type of disc connected right onto the comp case itself.

But you're right with the DT, the motors go out on them a lot. They are usually for 4/6/10/12 hours depending on make and model. Sometimes the contacts go So if you could isolate them... they're on the larger side and will go from the power to the compressor. Use a jumper and test for a complete circuit to the plug and through the compressor before trying it.

By law all freezers and ovens have to have a schematic diagram on them. Often it it in a little plastic package and sometimes just wallpapered to the inside of a large piece of sheetmetal in back.

Good that you know how to use a meter!

Compressor kicking on and off now not anything


Make sure you have 120volts at relay if not jump out thermostat if it starts to run and stays running Replace the thermostat. If you have 120volts at relay and it is not running or it's kicking off and on replace Start Relay/Overload but a bad compressor can make a Start Relay go bad so if you have the same Prob. after replacing Start Relay/Overload Compressor is bad

Kenmore Chest Freezer Model number 1987191852 has started to defrost own its own. Compressor starts and shuts down after appx 2 seconds. Has this unit reached the end? is it cost effective to repair?


Good day,
That short cycle you hear, is the compressor trying to start, and can't.
It is possible one of the start components has failed. Under a cover on the side of the compressor are either 3 or 2 components.
The start relay, the protective overload and on some models a start/run capacitor. These components can be removed by pulling them off of the pins of the compressor.
Most appliance parts houses will be glad to test them for you. Replace any that test bad.

If all test O.K. then it is an internal problem with the compressor itself, which would take the services of a trained tech and pretty pricey.

Compressor click


Possibly. However it sounds like the compressor is running hot which could be the relay assembly sticking with the start windings in the circuit.

Kenmore freezer deforsted suddenly. Comes on


compressor relay is probably going out...also check the plug in to the wall. A intermittant contact is a matter of following the source to the compressor. start at the plug and through the temp sensor/ t-stat defrost control and down to the compressor. but ususlly the compressor relay is the culprit.

Have power and light. can't hear compresser run


could be a bad start relay or start cap. could be a bad compressor. if you have an electric meter you can test the ohms of the compressor and that can tell you if the windings are good, however it cannot tell you if the piston is locked. if you have a locked rotor condition and bad starting components you will not be able to tell until you replace the bad starting components and test run. if it hums and draws lots of amps its locked rotor. most compressors will tell you RLA and LRA amperage, LRA is locked rotor amps, RLA running load amps

Kenmore frig freezer will go to 20 degrees and stay there


sounds like either the compressor is out or the relay that starts the compressor is out. I would try replacing the relay/overload on the compressor and hope for the best. if you have a continuity tester then check from each of the 3 posts sticking out of the side of the compressor that the relay/overload push on to fo one of the copper pipes coming off the compressor..no continuity is good if you get continuity then the compressor is shorted and ruined
