Question about Kenmore 55603 Side by Side Refrigerator
I tried to search the topics but couldn't find this exact problem.
Power went out the other day for 5 minutes. When it came back on it seems the fridge isn't working.
Embraco Compressor EGZ 90hlp on a Kenmore 106.56566400 Cold Spot ?
I think we bought it in 2005 or 2006.
Any way, the fan is running and there is power up to the compressor. The relay clicks, compressor cycles on for about 5 seconds, relay clicks and cycles off for about 4 minutes. This keeps repeating but the cond. fan never stops. I'm trying to get some ideas since I really don't know this system.
Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like the compressor relay mounted to the side of the compressor is out. Very common problem on these units. The replacement relay is supposed to be stronger and less likely to give a problem. Remove the relay and shake it. If you hear it rattling inside it is definately burned out.
Do not replace it with a 3 in 1 or kickstart relay. It will work fine for a few months and burn the compressor out. Get the correct replacement part.
Post back to let me know what you find.
