It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.

This usually indicates that the compressor is working too hard and drawing too much current. The click that you hear is a safety shut-off. Possible causes of this are numerous and usually require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a bad start relay.

There is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system.

Check your refrigerator owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator, there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor.

SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling

the clicking sound you can hear is the relay or clixon as sometimes it is known by trying to start the compressor it may be stuck,first turn off the power to the refridgerator then turn the fridge so that you can see the motor,on the side of the motor you will see a small plastic cover remove it to expose the relaly remove it by pulling it towards you exposing 3 pins in a triangle shape give it a shake to free the solenoid inside the relay relace in the same way you took it off power up the fridge listen to see if you can hear the motor run constanly if it just starts and then goes of its more than likely the compressor is us

What is the width of Kenmore 253.57188600 refrigerator?


Hello Chris;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
First, The 253 model is an LG. Stay away from LG and Samsung refrigerators. 70% of my service calls were for either LG or Samsung. A common problem; LG would have compressor overload failures caused by the compressor. I would have to change both the overload and the compressor. This was a $650 - $900.00 repair. The Samsung has the best looking unit on the market, with the highest component failure rate. Their televisions are great, but appliances!
Ok, your dimensions.
1.) You need to take a tape measure and measure the space. You need 3/4" on the top and sides for proper air flow. You also require 2-1/2" in the back. Take this information to where you purchase a new unit.
2.) Consider going to a Sears Outlet Store (Scratch & Dent). You save a couple hundred dollars and have a one year warrantee.
3.) Consider a Habit Store for a used appliance.
Ok, What brand do I buy:
1.) If you can afford it: Kitchen Aid, Amanda or Hot Point (Fewest service calls).
2.) GE, Kenmore (Model number 110.---).
I hope I have helped;
Peter

My refrigerator was moved away from the wall and unplugged for 2 weeks. They just moved it back and plugged it in. The displays light up, the lights come on but it is not cooling. What should I do?


Leaving it unplugged for 2 weeks should not have caused any problems. The fridge may have been on a defrost cycle. As the unit is unlikely to have had any frost, it should have started refrigerating about 15 to 25 minutes after plugging it in.

I have a Fridgidaire model FFUS2613LSO that beeps 3 times about every 30 minutes or so which has been happening for about 2 weeks.


Hi katelynn_did - When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. Typically, that is correct, to silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, since you have already tried unplugging the unit and issue persists, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board, faulty internal sealed system or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

a plugged or frozen drain is a common problem that occurs from time to time in just about all refrigs. Folllow theses directions and it will probably not occur again for 2-3 years.

  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order

Hi,
Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stops after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.
The defrost control can also be called an advanced control timer.

The other less likely thing that can go wrong is for the defrosst coil to burn out.
If you have an OHM meter you can check for resistance, if it is open then it is no good.

You can do a search for "appliance parts" and then enter your model number to find replacement parts.
check a couple of sites to make sure you get then best price.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Water in refrigerator, freezer is cold refrigerator is not


sounds like you have a frozen defrost drain. This is a fairly easy repair you can do yourself.  
  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order

that should fix you up. if you have any further questions leave me a comment here and I'll gladly help any way I can. thanks Peyton

My kenmore side by side is not cooling model 106.51574200


Now that really helps the one of two things it can be is the freezer compartment has the coils up there. They are more then likely covered in ice. Ice insulates the coils as to keep air from moving across them to remove heat from system. So take the back panel off in the freezer compartment and notice the shape of the coils. If they have a lot of ice built up on them unplug unit and get your hair dryer out to aid in defrosting unit a little quicker. If the drain tube located in the middle is plugged up with ice take some table salt and pour on the top. Only a couple a table spoons would be enough. let me know

Kenmore (frigidaire) model #253.55679400 evaporator fan does not come on


yes, the fan is controlled by the pcb controller, but it is also dependent on the temperature sensor since it is waiting for the sensor to give the signal that the freezer coils has froze up before turning the fan on.

it could be a bad freezer temp sensor.

i hope i was able to solve your problem,
