Freezer not cooling


The clicking you are hearing is probably the compressor trying to run but shuts down after the minute. If your refrigerator has a fan cooling the compressor make sure if is running and the coils are not blocked with lint. A warm compressor is a good sign a hot one is not. The compressor start device or relay could be causing the problem.

COMPRESSOR WARM TO TOUCH ,OVERLOAD RELAY CLICK WHEN PLUGGING INTO THE OUTLET


Compressor faulty, most probavly. let it cool altogether and try to restart. If it has a start capacitor, replace that first in case it is that simple. If the relay and capacitor are ok it is time to replace the compressor.

Model ffu213caw1: my freezer stopped cooling recently.there is power to the uniti hear a small click down near the compressor like it is trying to start and then it stops.compressor is warm to the touch...


Compressor is bad the clicking noise is the Start Relay/Overload is kicking on and off. compressor is warm because it's trying to start but can't Frigidaire is known for bad compressors. I don't think the Start Relay/Overload is bad because the compressor gets warm.

First gathered water at the bottom, thought that is was due to something touching the back. Stopped fridge, cleaned it, started it again. Light on but no familiar noice of the engine starting again. Engine...


Don't know the model/brand off the top of my head...

But: If the compressor is warm/hot, but nothing is happening, I ask this:
Even if the fridge is not cooling, is the compressor running, or dead silent?
If silent, but warm, do you hear a "Click" every so often ? Maybe 3 to 5 minutes apart, followed shortly by a 2nd click ?
If so, most likely the compressor has seized, and this is the over-current trip acting (thermal, so it needs time to cool).
Big problem if it is the compressor (expensive).

The only other thing that might cause a similar occurrence, would be if the compressor has a Start capacitor. If this has died, the compressor will not turn - just sit there getting warmer, as the over-current trip acts.

If it was a dead thermostat, the compressor wouldn't get power, and would be cold.
