SOURCE: compressor won't start

Whirlpool refrigerators as well as the other brands that fall under the corporation most like at some point within the first five years will stop cooling and freezing, and the sound you here will be either a humming follow by a click or in some cases just the click alone. This is caused by the start device on the compressor, or the compressor itself. Most times its the relay, and repair of this goes as follows:
The relay part of it has basically burnt, fell apart inside, however you want to describe and is not passing the power to the compressor to come on. To access this pull the refrigerator out from the wall, and first and foremost unplug it. Once that is done remove the lower panel, sometimes cardboard sometimes metal which is held up by a few quarter inch screws. Place to the side and located the compressor. The box on the side is start device, it will have 2 or 3 wires going to it, most of the time red and white respectively. Also they maybe a black box thats connected to the start device and sits horizontallty. Thats the capacitor. Keep that if your going to do the repair yourself. I recommend doing it because its very easy and will save you alot of money. You can buy this part at www.repairclinic.com or at www.apdepot.com just be sure to have your make and model number handy.

Help, i turned by Bosch Logixx GSL 14424 GB freezer off to defrost and it now won't turn on...


Turn it round and check the electrics for the compressor are dry. You probably flooded them when defrosting and may have shorted something. If it still won't start with everything dried out, call a fridge technician

I have a small frigadare a/c.a one room a/c.it comes on then right back off.what can i do about this.


Hello, here is what the problem may be. Every air conditioner has a motor called a compressor. The compressor provides the cooling capacity for the air conditioner. If the compressor or its electrical controls are defective the compressor may try to start, fail, and create an electrical overload. If the unit does create an overload, every compressor circuit is also equipped with an overload safety switch. The safety switch is designed to protect the compressor from burning out. The safety switch will cut the power to the compressor for a certain length of time and then reset itself. When it resets it will allow the electricity to flow to the compressor once again. If the compressor then starts, the unit should function normally. If the compressor doesn't start when the overload resets, the overload will again cut the electricity to the compressor. This cycle will continue indefinitely. (Always allow three to five minutes before restarting the compressor.) If this situation is occurring, unplug the air conditioner and get help from a qualified repair technician. This problem is often fatal to the air conditioner because the cost of repair often exceeds the price of a new air conditioner.

Can I limit the pressure to 120 PSI, the upper recommended limit for my nail gun?


adjust your pressure switch on your compressor .remove the cap and turn the screw clockwise to increase and counterclockwise decrease.turn the screw counterclockwise a bit and release some air till the compressor start pumping.then just before to reach 120 psi turn counterclockwise to stop the compressor at 120.then release some air again till it cuts in again and look at what pressure it will stop.keep going that way till you get your 120 psi.cut in should be around 90 psi(30 psi differential)depending what kind of pump you have (if the pump can handle 150 psi )you can adjust it to cut in at 120 and cut off at 150 and install a pressure regulator adjusted to 115 to 120 and get a nice steady pressure going to your nail gun.(the best way to do it!!!)

Refrigerator is not cooling. Compressor comes on than off after 20-30 seconds


you need to replace the ptc overload relay replaced on the compressor as this component is getting weak and is cutting out,it uses temperature vs. heat to protect the compressor from a no start or when the compressor cant operate on the run windings and overheats,then this ptc overload relay cuts out the compressor to protect it,it will keep trying to start the compressor till the ptc burns out,it just unplugs off the compressor and a new replacement plugs back in

Fan comes on for 10 sec. trys to start but stops,i unplug the power and try again same thing .It would it do it once every 2 months ,but now it will not stay on. please can you help me bruno


Possible that the relay or the compressor relay is switching off in load. If there is cooling onthe compressor but cuts off without a reason then shcek if the thermostat is kep tlow to let the trigger cut off. set a temp just above the room temperature.If the compressor holds on till the set temp is reached the thermostat is working fine. otherwise the thermostat may be givng the srong signal so that the compressor is not swittched on.
You can bypass the relay drive to switch on the compressor to chech this circuit. If so get the auto circuit corrected.

The freezer works fine, but if you unplug it, it won't start back up, you have to let it sit unpluged for about 30 minutes to an hour before it will come back on. Its like it needs to cool off, it does get...


The high side and low side of the refrigerant system , have to equalize , before the compressor can start . If you unplug , then plug back in , the high side has a lot more pressure , therefore the compressor will not start and the overload will cut the compressor off . When overload cools slightly , compressor will try to start again . If pressures not equalized , overload will cut compressor off again . As this happens , the compressor will get hotter and hotter . Eventually , pressure will equalize and compressor will continue to run . Very bad on compressor and components .

Hisense air conditioner


-If both compressor and fan motor starts and stop, thermostat is the defect.
- If only the compressor check for your outlet no sign of discoloration, check the voltage if normal, check the defective overload protector of the compressor it its external, or compressor itself is defective
