Samsung Refrig Compressor Problem


Can you tell where the hum is coming from?

Fridge tripping the breaker


I don't recommend replacing any parts on your refrigerator until you determine that the compressor is not shorting to ground. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel that covers the compressor. There should be 3 wires going inside the cover of the compressor. Mark all 3 and mark their location so if compressor is OK you can put them back in same order. The plastic cover may snap on and you may need to squeeze the sides to unlock the cover and sometimes there is a metal clip holding the cover in place. Remove the cover. May look hard but it's simple. There will be three connections under the cover and 2 will go through the start relay. Unplug them leaving the three prongs exposed. They may be marked R =Run, S=Start and C=Common. Set your meter on continuity and then begin by testing 2 at a time until you have checked S to R and R to C an C to S and S to R again. You should get a reading all the way around. If no reading between any of the pairs as you go around you should get no reading between any two the compressor has an open winding and is defective. Then if it passes that test then touch one probe to R and the other to the copper pipes or clean metal on outside of compressor, then S to metal outside and C to metal outside. If you get a reading this way even just a little. The compressor is a burnout. Then let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

VinoTemp VT60


Step 1:
It's most likely the PTC (Positive Temperature Compensated) start relay that turns the compressor on and off. The manufacturer has replaced part number P6R8MC with part number 6R8MG for this PTC start relay. Order part number 6R8MG, it cost less than $20 from AppliancePartsPro
First, unplug the wine cooler and take off the back panel. The back panel is held into place with several philips head screws.

Step 2:
Locate the compressor. You'll find the compressor in the bottom left corner of the VT-60 as viewed from the back. You will see copper tubes coming out of the compressor. These tubes carry the compressed refrigerant to the evaporator assembly. Be careful not to crimp or damage the copper tubing.
Step 3:
Find the black plastic cover to the left of the compressor. This cover is held into place with one philips head screw. Remove the screw and remove the cover to find the PTC start relay.
Step 4:
The relay is connected to the compressor by a single blade connector and two pins which protrude from the compressor. Remove the blade connector and pull the PTC relay to the left, sliding it off the pins attached to the compressor.

Step 5:
Slide the relay on the connector pins, reattach the blade connector, reattach the black pastic cover over the relay, reattach the back panel onto the VT-60 and you're done.

Samsung RS2555SL Not Cooling/Compressor won't start and cycles.


Jonathan is the solution!
It has been 24 hours since my fridgerator has started with the occasional clicking then not cooling. I started on the google hunt and found this website with Jonathan's post. I am a 26 year old female stay at home mom of 2 toddlers. I printed the page of Jonathans success and took it to my local parts store. I purchased the Mars start relay for 16 bucks. I pulled the refrigerator out from the wall and took the back apart and followed Jonathans instructions and I had success. You are a savior! I could never afford a repair man. Thank you so much for your post!!!
