Question about Samsung Freezers
I replaced clicks and relay and capacitor
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Your problem is not your thermostat. In some models the compressor knocks out the overload relay. They relay could last a few seconds or a few weeks before the compressor knocks it out again. This is especially turn with the LG units.
You will need a multi-meter to check your compressor.
1.) Unplug your unit. Remove the bottom back cover.
2.) Remove the overload components to expose the 3 pins on the compressor.
3.) Inspect the pins on the compressor. Are they clean or are they damaged from heat (Steel melting).
4.) With your multi-meter, set the meter on the lowest Ohms. Read the Ohms between each of the pins. You will have 3 readings. One reading will be high and the other 2 readings will be lower. Add the 2 lower readings together. This value must equal the high reading within a few tenths.
I hope I am wrong. A new compressor depending on the model is $275-$450.00. Include a system filter for $40.00, plus new refrigerant $45.00 and the cost od an experienced technician $300.00.
