MY FREEZER COMPRESSER ON SUB ZERO SIDE BY SIDE STARTS AND RUNS FOR 3 SECONDS THEN STOPS. IT WILL NOT CONTINUE TO RUN. FRIDGE IS OK.


This sounds like the start winding is trying, and the run winding is not. Check all capacitors. Check to make sure the wires are solidly on the compressor. Check the klixon switch, it should have continuity.

I have a Hayward power flo lx sp1580z2 pool filter motor. Breaker popped and the motor now only hums when turned on. Did a few searches to see if I could fix it. The shaft spins freely so I thought it was...


Jay, to be honest, with all the time your gonna spend searching and trouble shooting the pool is going to turn green and then your going to be stuck with bigger problems. The powerflo pump is a pretty inexpensive pump. Personally id just swap the pump and get it going so the pool stays clear.

Over the winter,tinker with the bad pump and see if you can fix it. If not, trash it. If you can fix it save it for a spare or sell it for 75$ on craigs list and make half your money back you spent on the new one.

I have split ac samsung,which has problem with no cooling.. also voltage flactuate when ac start i.e. from 240 to 188.. plz help


my friend us hould check your aircon have proper gas and may be there is a problem in your compressor u should chech power current supply of air con its possible there is aircon have short gas problem so contect to your a.c technician for further action.

We bought this kenmore fridge in 2002, and it buzzes for about 15 seconds, then quits for about a minute.I'm sure its the compressor, but why all of a sudden, and is there any inexpensive fix?


The buzz your hearing is the compressor NOT starting. You should hear a click after about 45 seconds and then silence. The click is the KLIXON thermal overload doing it's job of hopefully protecting the compressor windings.

There are a couple of things that can be causing your problem.

1. The PTC relay / KLIXON assy is no longer working normally (sometimes caused by a loose / hot contact)

2. The run Capacitor has failed

3. The bad news... the compressor rotor is locked and will not turn.

The relay and capacitor are a moderatly priced fix even if you have in home service.

If the compressor is locked and has to be replaced then your looking at a repair bill well upwards of $300.00 with the compressor, pre-oil for the system, labor and Freon / coolant.

It appears the freezer is not keeping the food cold enough and there is an occasional clicking noise underneath where I'm assuming the compressor is. Could this be some type of relay problem? This is a...


The clicking sound your hearing is the compressor trying to start but is not completing the start cycle or achieving run speed so the KliXon thermal overload is tripping trying to protect the compressor.

This can be caused by a bad start relay / Klixon,
A bad run capacitor or...
The bad news a bad compressor.

Letting it just click click click is not a good thing and will cause more damage. Unplug the unit for about 30 mins and then plug it in see if it starts normally.

There can be yet other issues like a defrosting timer contact problem that got weak / hot and isn't allowing enough amperage through to start the compressor.

It sounds like the motor is not running; it sounds like it wants to kick on, but it will make a buzzing noise and stop.


Most likely the compressor is not starting. You did not mention size or model but I am assuiming it is some where between 17.5 and 21.7 cu ft. The buzzing noise you hear is either the start relay of the compressor itself due to a locked rotor. If the unit is less than 8 years old call for service. Usally the tech / repair person will replace the start relay and Klixon thermal overload first in an attempt to see if your unit will start. That person may also have to replace the run capacitor also. If after the replacement of these relatively inexspensive parts the compressor still does not start due to an interanl failure of the compressor itself then the bottom line is a full blown compressor replacement that with the cost of the service call, labor, parts and freon can cost almost 50% of the cost of a new Refrigerator. Good luck.

The refrigerator will not cool, same with the freezer. I here a clicking noise from the back of the refrigerator, one of my buddies took a look at it, and he thinks it sounds like it is stuck in defrost....


The clicking sound your hearing is most likely the compressor trying to start but fails to do so. This is a protection feature that is the Klixon thermal protector heating up because the compressor is not starting properly and then the audible CLICK is the Klixon opening the start circuit. Things that cause this are a bad run capacitor, a bad compressor relay or possibly a locked compressor which is by far the worst thing that could be wrong.
If the unit is 8 years old or younger I would at least allow a service tech to replace the start relay Klixon and run capacitor. If ater that process is completed and it still does not start then the compressor is locked and has failed internally the compressor rmust be eplaced. There is a Locked rotor test that the tech can do with an Amp meter. On the side of the compressor there is a LRA (Locked rotor Assy) value in amps. If after connecting the amp meter and attempting a start cycle that LRA value is reached then the compressor is locked. Oce again i.e replacement required. If the unit is over 8 years old I would seriously consider purchasing a new unit depending on the overall condition of your unit. If it is good shape then go ahead and have the compressor replaced. Mind you this is one the most costly repairs you can have done.

Samsung LN26A450 LN26A450C1DXZA won't turn on


I had the same problem with my Samsung LN26A450 LCD TV. I found the following YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm51C_RDIZE titled "Samsung TV Repair - Part 1 of 2) (also watch Part 2 of 2) which shows how to easily fix the problem. The problem is bad capacitors on the power supply board. My TV had seven (7) bad capacitors - all 7 had dark stains on the ends from leaking electrolytic fluid and one (10V 2200MFD) was blown with bulging ends. I ordered 7 new high-temp (105 degrees C) aluminum radial capacitors from DigiKey.com matching the Temperature, Capacitances and Voltage Ratings for each damaged capacitor that I removed. I followed the instructions in the video except I used desoldering braid ($3.99 at RadioShack) to remove the solder attaching the bad capacitor leads to the power supply board. Once you wick up the old solder from all sides of each lead wire using the desoldering braid, the bad capacitors are easily removed. Total cost of repair including soldering equipment was less than $50. Thanks to “The Professor” for posting the video and saving me $400.

GE Refrigerator Compressor Inop.


I found this post by searching on the capacitor number, JSU21X126AQC. My 2001 Kenmore refrigerator (don't have model# here) compressor didn't run, but I heard it hum for a few seconds and then a click. That's the Klixon overload doing its job. I measured resistance of the compressor leads same as original poster. This lead me to determine that the windings were not open or shorted. The wiring to the compressor also fed the condenser fan, and it was running, so power was at least all the way to the compressor.
What I did find was that the 12uF capacitor was only 4uF. My digital volt meter has a capacitor check range. This compressor circuit is a permanent split capacitor type. Without the proper capacitance, the compressor can't start. I replaced it with a 10uF, 220v AC capacitor I had, and now it runs fine. I wonder how many refrigerators are scrapped because of this inexpensive problem?

Kenmore Refrigerator


Faulty compressor..

one of the windings on the compressor have burnt out or are faulty..

however it could be a faulty relay/klixon or capacitor and not the compressor

most likely is the compressor job for the experts really.
