I hear the switch click but unit doesnt always run, thawed my whole freezer? Spoiled my milk?

My unit stops running, I can hear the switch click, but then the unit will not run. Only sometimes, is so bad that my freezer had thawed completely a couple times, and my fridge has spoiled my milk.

    the white box on the side of the compressor is the start switch, right? and the relay is the little black box behind the compressor?

Two things. 1. Bad Relay   2. Bad Compressor
The clicking is the overload protector.

I have a hot point refrigerator model CTX14AYBNRAA. Yesterday the freezer lost cold, all food thawed. Today the frig is 70 degrees. I replaced the defrost timer. It did not help. What else can I do?


is the compressor running if so try this.
1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.
let me know.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
For a quick fix in this situation just thaw the coils out with a hairdryer.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine


I turned off the refrigerator and left the freezer door open so the coils and the vents could thaw out. The cold air was not getting to the refrigerator section because of ice blocking the vents.

New Frigidaire side by side running constantly and still warm


If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.
