This usually indicates that the compressor is working too hard and drawing too much current. The click that you hear is a safety shut-off. Possible causes of this are numerous and usually require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a bad start relay.

There is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system.

Check your refrigerator owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator, there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor.

SOURCE: Refrigerator fan running not cooling

Good day,
That is the compressor not running. Could be a bad compressor, or one of it's starting components.
You can remove the start components from the compressor, by removing the cover, and pulling them off the compressor pins.
Any decent sized appliance parts house will test the components, usually made up of the overload protector, start relay, and on some models a start/run capacitor.
If any parts check bad, replace them, if they all check O.K. then you will need the services of a trained service tech.

Emerson mini model cr501e frig and freezer both quit working what should I check No


check to see if the compressor in the back is running. This is not easy to hear has they are really quiet. If it running and its not cooling then it is low on refrigerant, if the compressor is not running then it could be a bad compressor, or the thermostat is not working or adjusted right. Thermostat is likely located inside the frig.

Compact Refrigerator stop cooling, I am out of ideas.


Good day,
If you hear the compressor running, then the overload and relay are O.K. It can be one of three things.
1. Leak developed in system.
2. Restriction internal in the refrigerator sealed system.
3. Valves in compressor failed, which would not provide any pumping action for the refrigerant.

None of these items are practical repairs on a compact. But if it's under warranty (under 5 years old), check with the selling dealer for warranty claim.
P.S. Does not apply if coils were punctured.

Thank you for using FixYa

Emerson Compact Refrigerator not cold.


Make sure the condenser fan is running, it is located near the compressor and blows across the condensing coils, and make sure the coils are clean. Compressors usually do get pretty hot though. And make sure all you fans are running in the inside

Compact refrigerator stopped cooling. If you turn the thermostat on the light flickers and makes a clicking sound. If you turn the refrigerator off the light stays on. In the back you can hear it ticking...


The clicking sounds like the compressor is trying to start. If the condenser fan running? If it is then you need to check the relay of the compressor. It could be a bad compressor.

Yes, listen to regular fridge for the sound of the compressor. do you hear it now? does it fill warm? Do you hear a clicking noise? Ifso, you'll need a potntial start relay, or a 3 in 1 start kit 15.00
